That would be extremely awesome. I don't know if it is because living in this age makes it harder to see the jumps in technology, but I often find
myself thinking that things aren't progressing as quickly as they could be. I mean decades ago people predicted that we would have all types of
wonderful things at this point, and we do to some extent, but many of the predictions fell way short. And some of those predictions still seem to be
extremely far into the future. It also seems like there is research being done, and breakthroughs being made all the time, yet that is the end of it.
That research and those breakthroughs don't seem to materialize into anything futuristic.
But maybe I am mistaken. Another thing I often find myself wondering about is how advanced some of the black projects are as far as technology is
concerned. Agencies like DARPA have extremely classified technologies that the public doesn't know about, and that is just one example, and it is
obvious that they must have more advanced technologies. Much of it may be related to warfare in some way, but so many things that are useful in war in
this day and age would also be useful to the public.
An agency like that could focus their resources and solve problems that have eluded mankind up to now, for the benefit of all. I suppose I believe it
is just another "backward" aspect of society in a way. I understand the need for secrecy where the military is concerned, but just like the
government can play the "national security" card, the "technology strictly for warfare" card could be played to keep advancements out of public
hands, since as I said, almost any technology can be applied in a military nature, because the military has various types of systems, roles, and
Anyway, if a pill could be developed like is mentioned in the article, it would change humanity, depending on how broadly it could be applied, or to
put it another way, how many different things someone could learn by taking the pill. There are many grand ideas like this one that have been proposed
as being possible, and the more I think about it, there is no reason it couldn't be possible. It just takes research. They know how it should work,
and therefore just have to figure out everything else. With funding and some bright minds, it could probably be done relatively quickly. I think that
is true of a lot of things, but usually not enough resources are allocated, meaning it takes much longer to reach the milestones.
