First of all....hello everyone!! And thanks OP for such a fabulous thread!
Now....just my thoughts...as I too have felt this 'waiting' as long as I can remember....
To give a different perspective....and to answer Karen (quoted above)....
Does ANYONE here wonder....if we are waiting for everyone else to catch up?
To reach the 'awareness' level that we all seem to be experiencing?

I can assure you that the inevitable clash between culture and technology is going to happen. It might be in the next year, or in one hundred years, but its definitely coming down the pipeline. It all depends on how well controlled the release of technology is in proportion to the growth of the culture which contains it.
We have seen very minimum growth in culture compared to the technology, and the constant flow of released knowledge can only be mitigated to an extent. If anything, technology has become a new religion in many ways.
I know it might seem better to leave it vague, so that many can identify with it that much more easily. But the clash I speak about is going to be happening.

Throughout this thread I have been considering to post some speculations as of what is to come.
Somehow, I am afraid to say it out loud.
First of, because English is not my native language.
I doubt if I can get the message across, or that it will be tainted with a lot of noise due to this language barrier.
The second reason for me being hesitant, is somewhat foolish; I'm afraid to jinx it, if you know what I mean.
This is because my speculation might be more of a 'wishful thinking', of what I'm hoping for to happen.
Stupid I know.
Let me just think this one through ...
I might get back on this one...
