What we choose to use or create can be used to promote or destroy life.
The science and technology we use to monitor, manipulate and/or control matter is continuously evolving to have greater and greater impact at the very small and very large levels of our world and universe.
In the future advancements in technology will continue to give individuals more and more power to influence others and the environment. As we move into the singularity age where technologies like nanotechnology, supercomputers, mind and body mapping, and robotics are prevalently integrated with humans and our environment individuals in power will be able to easily free or enslave humanity.
Today fossil fuels are creating climate change that may send us into a toxic age, in the future nanotechnology, super computers, and robotics may be able control or destroy every human or help monitor and create a sustainable population
