The Clash between Man and Machine

Many movies today even T.V. series feature science fiction films especially about robots. One thing is for sure, these robots fight for human existence according to what "it" is programmed and believes. It might serve as good soldiers for us or it might serve as life destroyer. Digital age has come and man's realization of his dreams has started. Robotics is the most ambitious dream of every inventor. Who would have thought that 18th century's simple machines could take our figure and even do our tasks?

We always look forward for a better future. We continually seek for good benefits but sometimes, we take it for granted and don't dare to foresee the bad effects that technology will bring. Actually, these bad effects have already happened. We tend to depend more on technology and forget how things usually work manually. This one is already a big effect and problem, so as, what more if technology is twice advanced than today's and new machines or robots are invented? Technology might be a good medium to get wealthy but I don't think its products will. Now, if you're thinking that there would still be jobs that need manual work like machine operating, electronic components designing and making, then employees must still be qualified or not just an undergraduate.

Let us just wish (we should make ways not just wish) that one day, we will be as prosperous and true rulers of this world as the people we see on technology - inspired films but still have our human nature preserved.

Well, my belief is that technology is not a bad thing. It is the ones who wield technology that make it bad.

Take for example the motorized vehicles. These vehicles became bad to the environment because they dump greenhouse gases in the air. However, the problem is not with the vehicles per se but with the people who just want to have convenience at the expense of the environment. Now, we are having climate change because of our utter disregard of nature.
