Technology and innovation has resolved every major challenge humanity has ever come across. I believe this will become more and more true in the future as technology continues to fuse with every aspect of our lives, our minds and our bodies.

The era of technology began when humans started using tools and fire to solve problems. Since then it has successfully combated famines, pollutions, contaminations, floodings, animal attacks, malnutrition, storms, lightenings, droughts, fires, viruses, bacteria and just about every type of physical injury we can possibly manage to sustain ourselves.

When a new technology is discovered, it’s up to the early adopters to show the world why and how to handle the transition. After some skepticism the solution will eventually gain foothold and everyone will ask; how did we ever manage without it?

However, like any effective cure, technology has come with some side effects. Our quest for higher standards of living has for example faced us with big environmental issues. Yet we are still a young species and have only briefly been technologically advanced. I have full confidence that we can solve any problem that is to come, both natural and man made.
