Technological evolution beyond the known or imaginable

Artificial environments mimic natural environments and all technologies are trying become sophisticated replicas natural, organic, animal origins.

We extract and extrapolate from the natural world and then combine our creations in order to create technologies that simulate the natural world.

Examples are countless. From super solid wings found on the early aircraft model to incredibly flexible wings. From super hard suspensions, axels, steering systems, etc. to incredibly soft, movable, flexible, shock resistant systems. From separate system components to nanotechnology. What is nanotechnology but an attempt to create an artificial DNA.

Or at least it’s an attempt to create a piece of technology that can modify, reprogram and redesign itself in order to integrate itself into its current environment, whatever it might be.

Or what strikes me even more as a potential ultimate goal for nanotechnology or for any other form of bio chem tech based technology is the need to move from any given environment to any

The problem is the stage where we add our improvements to bio chem tech nature based technology. Natural products are in some ways perfect for the moment in which they exist.

That is they have been existing for millions of years and have managed to survive for so long because they have been improving the invisible formula according to which their structure operates.

Our improvements are forced and we have no idea how effective they are.

Perhaps that is the best reason why we shod stick with the natural progression.

In fact, we have been so ignorant that quite a bit of our research, I mean most of it, has not considered future consequences.

Given the nature of the alleged scientific thought it is truly amazing that we create and test things if know that we will not be able to detect the full consequences of their results.

Is that not the most unethical, unscientific, illogical and therefore dangerous form of ignorance there is? Not to mention the most inhumane?

So we know nothing about consequences of experiments required to create new technologies, we know nothing about new technologies, nor do we know anything about consequences of our new uses for new technologies yet we continue to create them.

Is that not the most unethical, unscientific, illogical and therefore dangerous form of ignorance there is? Not to mention the most inhumane?
