No matter how you look at it the last 150 years has been a time of great accomplishments by mankind. It was during this time that computers, phones, televisions, circuit boards, rockets, cars, radios, satellites, microchips, lasers, nuclear weapons, and millions of more advancements were made. If we look into our near future things like hover cars, cloaking devises, force fields, teleportation, and the like, are all possible. There has been an explosion of technology and these are no small accomplishments; these are things that changed the lives of most people on the face of the planet.
But have you ever just sat and though for a moment about how these inventions came about so quickly? In a little over 150 years we have had major advancements in technology unlike any other time in history. Why is it that the fastest source of travel for 5,000 years was horse, boat, and foot; and yet today we can go to the moon and back? What accounts for the ‘technological’ gap?
