CONSEQUENCES OF SCIENCE

ddddddd

As soon as Einstein saw the equation E=mc2, endless possibilities must have struck him. He may have been completely ignorant of the technology involved, but the implication would have not been instantaneously obvious. Society is highly affected by the technology. Actually, every aspect of our life is affected by technology, society is no exception. I, myself have seen so many advancements in technology during the 23 years of my life. Either it was digital cameras, Walkman, Mobile phones, computers, Windows, Mac, or tablets. Whether a technology is for good or for ill must be our choice. We can use it to enrich our lives or to let our lives lose all meaning. Sometimes a technology is so pervasive that we cannot escape it, but often we have the freedom to choose. Scientists can no longer hope naively that people will only use science for the public good.  The world will always have the mentally unbalanced, the delusional, the vicious, and the sociopathic members of society, some of whom will also be intelligent enough to use the results of science.   World is being run by high- tech machines and innovated equipment that people think it would give us good effects but rather it generally changed our whole life that we now forget the simple life that our ancestors left us. We don’t always have to accept the fast food approach if we choose not to. The violence of television and the pornography of the Internet are not forced on us. The contribution which the automobile makes to a sedentary life can often be rejected. If we become a slave to our cellphones or other like media, it is not the telephone which should accept the blame. Discipline is still a virtue, for us. From my prospectus we facing the consequences of our own choice. Science did not force us to choose technology in the unacceptable means, we use it for our own comfort actually we misuse the technology.  Reflecting on its advantages and disadvantages, we now realize its consequences when used by us. It is up for us if we protect ourselves from exposure of existing technologies and it is within ourselves where and what to believe among these effects!

 

Science is the knowledge of consequences and dependence of one fact upon another…
