Is progressing a bad thing or a good thing? Some people out there prefer that we could live like we were in the past because we couldn’t develop as much and so we didn’t pollute the environment. They would argue that living closer to mother nature would naturally be good and be healthy, and anything otherwise is just bad! They would argue that scientific advancements like nuclear power would be bad and so forth. Basically, they would like to roam naked in the wood and prefer doing things more naturally! Once again, are they right or wrong?
This specific case, I think they’re not only wrong but super stupid! In the movies, we got superhuman, but in this case, we got super dumb ideology! Why? Just like any tool, it got two sides! One good and one bad! Like a knife, you could use a knife to cut food or kill people! One is good, and one is bad! So, when scientific developments are meant to be used for good, these things are naturally good. These things are more natural than a rock which sits pretty on the ground all day long!
People who argue that developments are bad should ask the dinosaurs why they had extinct! Isn’t it obvious that the dinosaurs couldn’t think as deep as humans thus they could not fly away for a brief vacation till things on earth cool down? This is why scientific advancements are super crucial for the human race as a whole! We need to be able to escape one rock and cultivate another just so we could avoid our own extinction!
Us humans tend to be not only stupid but we are also very arrogant! We tend to think that what we got would last forever! Unfortunately, we could not live forever, and our human race won’t exist forever also! Why? Even the sun will cease to exist eventually! So, even the scale of the universe would not last forever, why would we think our earth would last forever? If earth would not last forever, how will human race last forever? Isn’t it natural for earthy humans to devise plans for our continuation even though we know nothing would last forever?
So, let’s get back down to earth and think simpler! I think nature itself is just a tool! If you’re sick and needing a cure, the right herbs naturally would cure you. If you’re not too careful and eating the wrong mushrooms that exist naturally in nature, you would naturally die! Nature exists as both good and bad! So let us not be that stupid to think that developments are bad, and whatever exists naturally is naturally good!
Sometimes, hugging a tree is bad for the whole human race! Instead of hugging a tree, we need to plant trees as a development and common sense! Don’t argue that any development is bad! Don’t just say nuclear power is unsafe! In fact, I believe that we may need more advancement in nuclear power so we could suppress the tyranny of distance within our universe so we could travel far and cultivate more out-of-this-world colonies (i.e., in space) so we could lengthen the human race lifespan!
