Um , I think you may be getting confused. For a start, let me tell you that the only way we are going to advance as a species is by updating our
current technology to be more refined and energy efficient. Just switching off , or preventing the invention of, more technology is not going to
benifit us one iota.
We are at a stage where some of our tech cannot be merely powered down without catastrophic consequence, like nuclear reactors on land and on ships
and subs at sea. The only way things will get better for us , is when the big energy companies take responsibility for the years and years of blocking
they have done when it comes to preventing the rise of the water engine , and making new engine designers sit on thier hands, even though some have
had ideas that could change the world.
The ONLY problem that technology causes , is power consumption, which is only a problem because we are FORCED by lack of alternatives to use harmful
power sources. The moment the available technology to remove that issue , becomes mainstream, there will cease to BE a problem.
Dont forget that technology has saved as much as it has broken, and then a bit. Heart monitors, CT scanners, graphical software, xray machines. All
these things have saved lives and more besides them . You cannot lump all these things in with nuclear bombs and depleted uranium bullets.
