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 buyers market. Who would ever thought wed be able to talk live with someone who lives on the other side of the world. Its truly amazing all the luxurys we have, and its 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 its communication using morse code. They also had an extremely slow mailing service, that took weeks to meet its 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 dont know about you, but I cant 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. Its hard for me to imagine that my own forefathers 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 knows soon, maybe computers will replace the telephone. Or theyll have a 911 dispatcher hooked onto e-mail incase something happened to you while you were on-line. Its hard to envision the technology that well 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. Its a great way of communicating with someone who lives to far way to go see.
Im grateful for the telephone, because it allows me to talk to my family who lives over 2,000 miles away. Its good for long- distance relationships because, it enables you to hear someones voice instead of just seeing their hand writing. Talking on the telephone is a luxury that most take for granted. Id 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 theyre 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 for us.
