Tunnel vision, we are so focused on our own little world that we can not see the world and the changes that are happening around us. I wonder sometimes why we choose to do the things that are meaningless and preoccupy our time just so we can escape. So is it changing for the better or worse? I must pose a two part question to add to this one, Will the changes affect me or my family and why should I care?
Technology is changing rapidly...why do I care?
for example: Intel is coming out with faster processors that are well over 3GHz in speed, who really needs this kind of speed and why?
We are living in a world that wants the latest and greatest and they want it now. Why, so we can be better then the next guy?
Well, the topic at hand...The world is changing. I think it is changing for the better in some areas like medicine and safety. Worse in areas like taking care of families and people, and technology.
Just my humble opinions.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.
--Robert Louis Stevenson
