Technology has been around us since the first “wilder mann” walked the face of Earth and resulted as a product of our mental capacity to observe and relate, and our physical ability to transform and mold – mainly by use of our hands – problem solving tangibles that improved and/or satisfied our individual and/or communal needs.
Hence, it might be said that technology is in essence any designed tangible that strives to ease or solve certain problems to satisfy particular and/or communal needs. Technology has therefore a synergetic relation with society since it can facilitate the socio-political goals of it.
Of course, the problem is that any erroneous view and comprehension of Nature and self as a whole will undoubtedly lead to the fulfillment of wrong needs, consequently to the development of wrong technologies. If we overlook this fact than the negative side-effects become apparent, and is why throughout the history of mankind people, societies and the planet alike have often been negatively affected by it.
In today’s western society numerous examples can be given of technologies that although advantage from pure economic considerations could be demonstrable harmful for man and Nature as a whole.
Let us give some example to make our point clear:
Fracking (hydraulic fracturing) is a very straightforward and cost-effective way to extract gas and oil but can be very harmful for the environment in the long run; GMO’S increase our capacity to make and control food according to certain specifications but is a serious threat to the ecosystem as a whole and introduces potential dangers in the human system, while antibiotics have solved significant problems for health related things yet in doing so has weakened our immune system.
Also technologies bringing about new social-revolutions such as social-networks allow young and old to be connected worldwide but the content and information to which people have ‘access to’ and/or are ‘subjected to’ do often promote and induces wrong behavioral patterns.
Watch out! We, the founders and members of Godinci, are certainly no technophobes but embrace technology with all our might for reasons that technology can play an important role in the acceleration and easing of our evolutionary process while the lack of technology is provably not beneficial for humans – just think of some parts of Africa, India and Asia for this purpose.
What we say is that even though our scientific knowledge has led to an explosion of technological applications in fields such as entertainment, commerce, medicine, education, crime, warfare, social-life, industry, design, art, law, etc., we cannot deny the numerous obscure technologies that followed here from, and so, we claim that to reduce the problem of social degeneration thru technological prostitution we have to understand and define what problems to smooth and which needs to satisfy on fundamental, and not economical, principles, so that we can assures us of the fact that the tangibles we develop are not only beneficial for the principles of harmonation but above all maximizes our becoming towards our cosmic purpose as individual and species as a whole.
The topic of ‘technology’ within our website will therefore become a very extensive one and will include topics such as:
- History of technology
- Relation between society and technology
- Solution to energy problems
- How to decide what technology to develop and implement
Unfortunately, at present we have only included what technology Godinci is working on right now to solve our emergent energy problem.
In the near future we’ll address other technology related question in this website and expand largely on these topics; we therefore advice all truth seekers to visit us from time to time to remain informed or simply sign up to receive action alerts.
