Have you seen the documentary Food INC.? They talk about how technology from an agricultural standpoint has affected the way we purchase and consume food products. In many ways technology (thru capitalism) has advanced agriculture but in other ways it’s destroyed agriculture and is making us and the planet sick.
Technology is advancing at an alarming rate. Now we have GMO crops, little diversity in gut flora, and satellites for growing crops. It’s crazy to think technology has advanced this much from a consumerist point of view. To think that soon holograms will become mainstream. They already use holograms in Japan for concerts, and our local sports store has a display with a hologram in it!
