With less and less human beings thinking for themselves, robots, and artificial intelligence creates a real risk, depending who is in charge.
While it is true machines can do some things with a precision and efficiency humans simply can't. It's also true that it breeds a codependence and a
lack of self suffeciency where fewer and fewer people even have basic self survival skills.
What happens in an automated ER when a hurricane or Electrical Magnetic Attack knocks out electricity and fries circuits.
Are nurses still going to remember how to do the math of how much medication to give someone based on their body weight and hieght? Are there still
even going to be manual scales to weigh people and measure their height? Are surgeons going to lose their touch for that delicate brain or heart
operation, because the machines have been doing it for them for years on end?
Agro corporations are using machines now to grow our genetically altered food. Who here on ATS even knows how to sew, let alone weave clothe, let
alone grow cotton or flax? How many of us could even build a camp fire with a bic lighter?
We know longer control our own destiny, the people who create and control the technology that has taught us to be codependent, lazy and unskilled do.
It would be great if we lived in a peaceful world, absent greed, jealousy and violence, but this much technology in the wrong hands, is just an
inherent danger that is bound to be the death of us.
Well time to go make some candles!
