At one time, the concept of a phone that could cross an invisible threshold and reach a friend halfway across the world was just a daydream in a sci-fi junkie’s mind. Now, the concept of not having a mobile phone is almost equally as outlandish. Technology has come a long, long ways in a very short amount of time. And it continues to grow.
Forget smart phones, technology has evolved so rapidly and with such force that it saves lives. In fact, technological evolution has become more important in the scheme of the future of humanity than its counterpart – natural, biological evolution. The technology we use is a staple of society not just locally, but globally. We no longer use these devices because to keep up with the Jones’, we live in an age where we fundamentally rely on technology to live. Without it, the world would move at a far less rapid pace, businesses would not succeed, and information would spread as if moving through thick syrup, not thin air.
Needless to say, humanity has come a long way, and fast. Let’s take a look.
