Will there be a time, in the future, when we should stop developing new technology?

  • I would love new tech to stop now before it gets worse.

    No more touchscreen phones and crap like that. Back to CD and DVD.
    No ebooks, bring paper books back. Let's get rid of online shopping.
    Music can be listened on a radio. Internet use should decrease or stop completely. Modern technology will make us lazy and have no purpose in life.

  • Technology age stops here

    I think we are all looking at this question at a different side...I agree, that technology is a huge aspect of our lives and we need it for medical purposes so that surgeries would go smoother and injuries will heal a lot faster. I agree that phones need to be used for long distance texting and for important calls including the internet as our primary resource for information. However, I think the technology age should stop here. Every now and then, a new phone comes up on the market because it has a slightly better camera than the "old one" or it has slightly higher quality speakers than the phone before, but is it really necessary to buy into this stuff? Was is the use of a newer phone if the "older one" that came out a year before works perfectly fine.

    As technology progresses, some gadgets will give many false assumptions about the real world and its ways. Such as the new VR...Tricking the body as if it is not on earth could really impact those when they come back from their virtual reality. Stop giving people fake assumptions and the world would run a lot smoother with people knowing their goals since we have stopped assuming that the world is some kind of virtual reality.

    I got to say those new gadgets and toys are pretty cool, yet is it really necessary to make these artificial intelligent related things that could lead our future to take a turn for the bad?

  • It would take dreams away from many

    The world needs to stop with technology right now. Because of technology, jobs will be lost. I want to be a vet, but that might not happen because of our technological advances. Think about the kids, when we get old, we will feel screwed over because the adults in our generation were selfish. Once AI becomes a thing, then more and more jobs will be lost. The only people who would be untouched would be the Amish. I propose people start talking to representatives and senators to start passing bills and laws.

  • We need people to work

    The more technology we obtain the less work human's have and the less were not decreasing in population and the less work the more crimes pick up plus if you need more technology then your not so smart or too damn lazy so just reach a plateau and be happy with what you have or we will continue to slide backwards not forward. Plus we become so reliant on technology what if we were hit by a strategic E.M.P wow what would we do then THINK ABOUT THAT

  • Technology ruined the life

    Anyone can have number of people of stop using electronic. For the game, play the board game only, So they don't need to waste energy and number of people around the world will stop using any electronic and past don't need electronic and i can made only paper or everywhere. Do not think we can use electronic at school for assignment, homework and testing. It for olny paper!

  • The Danger of Technology

    The world of technology, the internet and social media is slowly destroying the way we live our lives and the world around us. The rise of new technology has, and will continue to contribute to the rise of unemployment. The internet, despite its educational aspect, threatens the young and naive minds that children are slowly loosing. And finally, social media, instead of bringing us closer together, has torn us further apart than ever before and contributed to people becoming lost in a world that doesn't exist and has dragged people away from what really matters. It is my sincere belief that technology should have a serious limit to how far we can take it and we should begin to erode the many negative aspects that are a result of what we have created.

  • Technology makes our brain empty...

    Before we were having cellphones, we were keeping all the numbers of friends, families, relatives, etc. Even though, when they found telephones they were keeping the phone numbers in their mind. But when the cell phones were introduced, all of them stored their brain in the cell phone and took the lazy and empty brain from the cell phones and kept with them.

    In the early days, when there were no maps all kept the routes in their brain as a map but now only some of them know. The others will see the navigator or maps in the cell phone.

  • Without technology, we'd be dead!

    Technology is vital to culture and human life. Without technology, hospitals wouldn't know what to do! Also, we would not be going anywhere without technology, we'd be lost and have to walk everywhere we had to go. If you think that new technology is going to kill us, well it doesn't! With new technology, we could teleport, fly to the depths of space (father than our solar system) or even find cures to diseases like AIDS or cancer!

  • Technology Is key to the future evolution the Human race.

    Without technological advancements, human beings would not be on this planet today. Innovation and refinement of technologies lead us from primitive beings to the dominate species on the planet.

    There will come a time where all of our needs (food, water, power, housing, healthcare) will be satisfied by advanced technologies, however, like all modern technology, refinement and innovation will increase productivity, efficiency and decrease possible negative side effects such as ecological and environmental effects.

    When Robotics and Artificial intelligence has reached an advanced stage, all manual labour and menial tasks will no longer be carried out by human beings. Human beings will not strive to simply survive as is the case in most 3rd world or economically down trodden countries/regions around the planet. Human beings will strive to thrive, We will begin to properly look towards interplanetary travel, Terra forming, sociological and cultural advancements, etc, etc.

  • Keep Moving Forward

    It is in human nature to explore and develop and to go beyond limits. Our planet is doomed to die but we are not. Eventually we will run out of space, resources, or time and I want my blood line to live on. It is in human nature to survive. It is a part of our animalistic side, and we cannot repress it; when the time comes we will be asked if we want to live or die--I will choose life. No matter your religious stance, if you even have one, it's a sin in whatever terms to waste life. Think of this; when you order a new phone someone in China makes, someone assembles it in the US, someone receives the revenue, and you enjoy the phone. You have now spread your influence around the world, employed someone, and provided them with the means to live. The world keeps turning and it revolves around communication and development. To keep a balance we must keep moving in order to keep things running the same. You may see the process of getting your Iphone boring but I see it in a different light that on that phone you would make a video that makes others laugh, improving someone's day, and they improve another's from their good mood, and so on spreading the love. I don't question what is above or bellow; I keep moving. At the end we all will find out what is true or not, or maybe we won't be able to know because there is nothing. Then what does all of this mean? What made the things that made us? There are things that I will never question and things that are too big for me to know. In order to survive as a race we need to keep moving to come closer to understand what we can and what we are meant to. Do we honestly want to throw away what took millions of years to make? Or will we keep being human and continue to fight on? One word can spark a war that will change what? Laws, borders, languages? We are all in the same boat and once we realize this we will be unstoppable. You can cut one branch but ten others will grow off the branch in it's place. We will grow, develop change, and move forward. No matter who has a selfish desire to change the direction. We will survive.

  • Evolve or die.

    Our intelligence and the technology we created with it is the only reason for our survival as a species. It's the only reason the general population is so shielded from reality (i.E. Natural selection) that they can make short-sighted claims like the "Yes" side.

    Suppose we arbitrarily stop advancing our technology and just relax for an indeterminate length of time. Everything may be fine for hundreds of years. Then a threat to humanity appears, such as some kind of super virus or a large meteor. We aren't prepared to defend ourselves. A topic shows up on debate.Org: "Should we have actually done something in the past 500 years?"

  • There will be such a time!

    The human race should never stop advancing. If we do it will cause our own destruction. We are constantly fighting against many diseases. We will need to achieve space travel for the day that our planet would be destroyed. By what? Well it could be because of us, or for the people that say we can do away weapons then our planet would still be destroyed the the inevitable; the destruction of our own sun. The sun will not always be there and one day it will consume our planet. So o, humanity must continue advancing and look forward towards our future.

  • why should we?

    what has technology done to us? what would hospitals do with out it? And we need sattilite navgigations dont we!! we need to do home work how can we keep in touch with out phones an stuff like that and maysayso you can get healthy you can wach exercise programs. What if you miss something on tv? Just wach it on the laptop!

  • Technology is fundamental to the Human Identity.

    Not only is should we not stop developing technology, but we are naturally predisposed towards developing it. Attempting to stop the advance of technology would only slow it down, and would waste our potential even further. If anything, technology needs to advance at a faster rate and become more accessible to more people.

  • Humans should always develop new technology, because it is our main strength.

    Species survive by evolving certain strengths, and humanity has survived using intelligence. Technology is a sign of our intelligence, and there are always ways to improve our planet for our survival. It must be done in a way that is intelligent and careful, in order to avoid our destruction.

  • I think technology is a vital part of our culture, therefore, I disagree.

    Technology is what makes us who we are. The whole world runs on some form of technology, and to end it altogether would be crippling to our world. Markets, schools, and hospitals are just some of the few places that rely heavily on technological advances. We need to stay on top of the curve as best as possible.

  • If we do not continue to develop new technology, our society and our world as we know it will cease to exist.

    We know, for a fact, that our planet can only exist for so many more millions of years, and that the sun will cease to heat our planet at some point in time. If we do not continue to develop new technologies, we will have used all the existing resources, and will have killed off our own planet. We would ensure our own self-destruction. We need to develop new ways of existing, new methods of production and, possibly, a way to move our civilization to another planet.

If we don't advance there will be no point to life. People always want more, there will always be something to advance on whether it be household items or making planets sustain life 5000 light years away. We will advance until the sun gives out, then we will just move to another planet.
