Is it just me or does it seem like society has hit a wall? Ever think about how much technology we have and how much better we can get? How much better can cellphones get, or cars, or just technology in general. Now I can't help but talk about 2012. You may believe it or not. I don't know what's going to happen on that date, but all I can say is when I look at the world today and things like music and technology I wonder where we are going and how much better we can get. I'd like to live a full life and see things progress but I just don't know what the future holds. I remember a while ago and things seemed normal and now in 2009 I wonder have we progressed too much and have we hit a wall?

That's what each generation says. If we all knew what technology would bring in the future we'd all be rich inventors.

Everything that can be invented has been invented.
Charles H. Duell, Commisioner, US Patent Office, 1899,

No one knows what the future holds but it's ignorant to think that we're the greatest we can be and can't invent anything else.

People used to say the same after the invention of the radio.

About 2012, it simply is the end of the Pisces age, and the beginning of the Aquarius age (which is supposed to be a good era if you believe in all that stuff).

Just a bunch of stuff that is yet to be invented:
Anti-gravity
Wireless electricity (it's being developed right now)
More medicines
Mental connection (like internet, but with our minds)

I don't think we're going to die in 2012. With all the technological advances we make everyday, by 2012 we could do something to prevent the huge asteroid heading our way...


Plus, we got Chuck Norris

Dude, touchscreen technology is progressing.

I'm also waiting until we get an affordable flying option so we can replace the car. Heck, why not a completely electric car? what about completely automatic autopilot? what about foodmakers instead of just coffemakers? what about robots so human you can't tell the difference?

We've got a ways to go.

I watched a documentry on robotics not long ago, and we're not as advanced in A.I. as i had thought so there is definately way more to do in terms of technology

Talking about the limits of technology is foolish. Some guy wrote a book about what computers can and can't do, and years after its release he was proven wrong. Technology is only limited by our imagination and ability to apply it.

This.

And anyone saying we're not doing any technological advances today must be completely blind...

no but I've seen fight club, and I'm pretty sure it says the same thing.

Chill out ****ers. I'm not saying we are not capable of having technological advancement. I'm really just asking your opinion on the matter and I think the topic just opens your mind. I'm just saying as far as music and a lot of technology we have goes, how much room is there for advancement and creativity when it seems that we have reached a peak. I know there are lots of things yet to do, but at the moment many things look as though they have reached their peak.

music is not technology my friend, more creativity. Same with moviemaking. We answered on technology.

what has reached its peak? I could maybe see music, maybe film, but nothing else really. The car/internal combustion engine, sure, but only because a new form of transportation is taking its place.
