power of the atom
The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything except the way we think?
Technology has developed and changed so much over the past century. Each day new
things are being developed, and new things are released to the buyer's market. Who would ever thought
we'd be able to talk live with someone who lives on the other side of the world. It's truly amazing all the
luxury's we have, and it's amazing how one those these inventions has the capability to change the world in
a very drastic way...
Could you imagine a place with no electricity, no communication, and no transportation other then
a horse and buggy? Believe it or not, but there was a time when these things were non-existent. At one time
people sent messages to other towns through a thing called ?wiring? basically it's communication using
morse code. They also had an extremely slow mailing service, that took weeks to meet it's desired
destination, because they had to walk on foot or on horse back. There were no cars, and there were no
airplanes, only there own two legs, and a horses. Something needed to be done. It took way too long to get
into contact with people, and it took the same amount of time to get a response.
In 1886, a man by the name of Alexander Graham Bell developed an interesting object, that gave
you the capability of talking live with one person, other then yourself. This object later became known as
the well respected telephone. Although when Bell first invented the phone there were many kinks that
needed to be worked out. And over time, after being constantly worked with and being revised the
telephone was close to perfection. It took sometime for the phone to really catch on, but when people began
to see how convenient it was, families everywhere went out and purchase one.
Imagine going one day, 24 hours without using the phone once. I don't know about you, but I
can't go more then a couple of hours without holding that receiver against my ear. Being grounded off the
phone, is a fate worse then death. It's hard for me to imagine that my own forefather's lived in a time were
there were no computers, and there were no telephones.
Communication continues to progress daily. With computers getting better with every passing
moment. Who know's soon, maybe computers will replace the telephone. Or they'll have a 911 dispatcher
hooked onto e-mail incase something happened to you while you were on-line. It's hard to envision the
technology that we'll have in the future, maybe nothing major will be invented, but maybe something as
big as the telephone.
Everyone uses the telephone, from the poorest man in the world to the President of the United
States. It's a great way of communicating with someone who lives to far way to go see. I'm grateful for the
telephone, because it allows me to talk to my family who lives over 2,000 miles away. It's good for long-
distance relationships because, it enables you to hear someone's voice instead of just seeing their hand
writing. Talking on the telephone is a luxury that most take for granted. I'd like to see this world get by for
15 minutes with absolutely no electricity. We rely on technology to do everything for us. Machines are
taking over the jobs of humans, humans are being replaced by metal.
I think that new inventions that really impacted our world, have the power to change the way we
think. The whole procedure of inventing something is a learning process. This learning may not involve the
whole public, because the public lacks the knowledged to build these things, but once it is put onto the
market, it can really impact the public. The computer has opened a lot of peoples minds, people may not
know this but, while they're surfing the net their learning. After a while of learning the brain begins to
change the way it thinks. But, we think a lot less, because we have other things such as machines to think
