Our Technical Reality

Postby JackalKnavesBorn on Mon Apr 18, 2011 9:43 am

i've come to the realization recently that most of what we think is science fiction or "in the future"is already feasible, the only real barriers are financial not technical. Nonsensical and antiquated things like cost efficiency and profit really stand in the way of technological progress. we can probably do most of the things that are discussed in this forum right now, in this day and age. there is no need to wait, the science and technical ability is already here, we only need the economic framework and culture that expedites technological research,integration, and progress. Japan seems to be the only country that has the culture, though they still have the same age old business practices.

To what extent do you mean? Interstellar travel is probably centuries away.

And it's strange that SF writers easily remember about that journey but usually don't come with ideas of inventions that are far more feasible and easier to obtain. Really, REALLY because of the technology the world will be very different place in 20 years but not thanks to space travel. Some people must understand it because I found out that most humans don't realise it completely. They think like it will be always 2011, but it won't. Ask Ray Kurzweil what he thinks about it.
