      I think you can see how the world would be in certain pockets of the world like Amish country in Pennsylvania which deliberately decline to engage with the modern world to preserve their way of life. While they may have a peaceful life, I think somebody like me wouldn’t last very long in the community as I have about 100 questions a day, that I want to ask and find the answers to (it currently way higher than that thanks to you lot!).

      I think that scientific discovery and technology go hand in hand and technology like computers have been a huge force for change in liberating people in terms of making education and new on-line jobs freely available. How lucky are we to be alive in such a age of discovery and technology that means that absolutely anyone can participate in Science!

      Hi 582bera34,

      Life would have been boring… It’s amazing to see how technology is developing for betterment of human beings. Its so easy because of these inventions to connect with your family and friends even if you are living in different country. …Like me 🙂 It’s difficult for me to even imagine life without these things now.. It has raised the level o education system as well…
