An Idea for a Book I'm Thinking About Working On
Past, Present and Failure.
Life evolves slowly. Technology develops rapidly. “Evolving” and “developing” are two different things. If development of technology (created and adopted by human beings) overtakes the life-form and its organic systems (physiological and environmental limitations), technology -- which runs on batteries -- eventually stops working or becomes dysfunctional and obsolete; unable to reboot. At the same time, the life-form -- which runs on an unknown or undetermined power supply -- eventually dies because it devolves and collapses faster than it evolves and expands; technology is contraindicated. This means that an anticipated and predictable, steadily deteriorating failure might be the effect of the future. Entropy as an effect, not a cause.
