New Generation in Robotics

The Creator of Life on earth and in the skies included the potential for change in all of His creatures; we started out with highly skilled brain capacity; though at first dormant it would come to fruition through learning and thinking.

This man did, and excelled.

Sciences developed and mankind prospered; new technologies rocketed us almost ahead of Time. The past fifty years can very well be described as the Technology and Communication Cycle in the history of our World.

We conquered disease and Space; new materials were developed and we acquired the ability to manufacture Robots to perform the menial tasks; we got close to prevent natural decay; new production technologies have enabled us to contain rust but not quite able to prevent it entirely; it remains one of the great enemies in many spheres of our daily lives.

But thinking ahead and advances made in Space travel and adding a new Planet some years ago Man stands on the brink of his greatest achievement yet.

Robots will be created to do everything for us; planting of cabbages and watermelons will cease together with all toil in the sweat of the brow.

These new robots are being trained in the classrooms of our schools and on campuses of Great Universities around the Globe even as you read this. In fact, it has advanced so far that we won’t even have to think; a robot with a Doctorate in Science will do it for us.

Life will be set free from the need to create meaning; thinking or just “shooting the breeze” with the neighbor on an evening in early fall will come to an end. Maybe they will have solved the menace of metallic rust by then as well; yes maybe it will become a plastic World.

After all plastic is rust resistant and surely when he is freed from all encumbrances of thinking and toiling in the fields Mankind will at last be Free to roam around in Space; the age and Era for it is upon us; surely it shall happen as we desire and so well deserve.

What a World? What an Era to live in?

    Eras are always fun to live in (e.g. The Era of Good Feeling).

    It’s the Ages that are a bitch. The Dark Ages, for example. Who would want to live then? Unless, of course, you were a princess. There seems to have been a lot of them. Whenever a woman told me about her past lives there was always a princess in there someplace.

      Thanks Nimrod

      Do tell me the name that you will call the Era that we are living through right now. I have a name for it; the time frame about 2010 to 2060. We just entered it as you will note from my description.

      Come on; your brain is capable; give me your name for it.

    I call this age the Reverse Axial Age.
    There was a time in the long distant past, the time of Homer, Confucius, and the Vedas when humanity drug itself out of caves and huts to lay the ground for great civilisations that would last millennia. Then, not too long ago in the greater scheme of things, we witnessed a second axial age. The rarefied air of the old scholarship and faith proved too much for most to breathe so man broke through the boundaries and created a new order, one in which intellectual thought would be discussed in a language that those who desired education already spoke, not the language of millennia past. This second Axial Age gave us the works of Cervantes, Camoes, Wu, Shakespeare, Ihara, and Moliere.
    Both Axial Ages gave rise to centuries of progress and cultural fertility around the world.

    We have now entered the reverse — a time when the world as a whole is degenerating. China, despite its economic growth, is like a gigantic Russia — a mere shadow of what it once was. India is doing a bit better, but it also shows signs of quickly degenerating.
    The West is committing suicide by means of political correctness and political sectarianism. The Middle East, other than Israel, is a cesspit of degeneracy — long gone are the days of Ibn Batuta and other great scholars of the Islamic Golden Age. We’re moving backwards, not forwards. We’re no longer producing great works, we’re no longer even standing still. We’re no longer even thinking — how many people cannot even figure out how to survive without their smart phone, computers, tablets, or other handy gadgets which think for them? I ponder this as I prepare to withdraw deep into the countryside for a few years before re-emerging in Seoul, in Kaohsiung, or in Tokyo.

      The wise are shunned in this Era; something will have to crack for humanity to wake up and work towards a solution but I don’t know whether we have the leadership to actually find it.
