I just hope there will be something beside plastic trash to stand as a testiment of our greatness. it doesnt matter how far we get. how many atoms we probe our results will be the same. beside we are more likely to die of polution and environmental issues long before the nanotechnologies will clean up our mistakes....technology is an instinctive defence mechanisim built into humanity,so we can attempt to fix our mistakes, thus the more techs you see, in all actuality the further from the truth we have strayed

We could advance so much further, scientifically, if people weren't so greedy.
