Technology Advancement Philosophy

One of the most invigorating things happening in this world is the sophisticated advancement of technology.  At this point in time, we have seen tools rapidly changing in order to adapt to more modern times.  And yet, we continue to have the necessary tools to carry out our daily life.  We utilize these essentials every day, but never stop to think about what they contain.

What we have been dreaming about during the last centuries is finally becoming a reality.  Hoverboards and hyper-loop traveling are a few of many technological advancements human beings have created or are coming close to accomplishing very soon.  We have pondered about brilliant and imaginative ideas about how we want to see the future; such ideas are now flying from paper and into our world.

But one of the most surprising aspects of this rapid advancements is the erudite nature of informational technology.  As humans, the data we receive is becoming increasingly important to us.  We have come to a point where we comprehend everything we want to know about a particular subject and even more.

Say you want to go to a restaurant for dinner tonight.  You think about what restaurants are close by and what type of food they serve.  With that, you pull up your phone (or a computer even) and search for information about a particular place.

And during that procedure, you learn EVERYTHING about EVERY piece of information there is to offer.  The time the restaurant opens, where it is located, the pricing of the food and drinks, how busy it is, how other patrons thought about it, who to talk to about booking a reservation, different events happening throughout each week.  Food, drinks, events, patrons; ALL of it, showcased on that bright glass screen right in front of you.  At that moment, you took in everything you needed to know about the place… and you never even left the house yet.

The physical shape of the phone looks aesthetically pleasing, but it’s the inside of it — the actual inner-workings of the modernized contraption – where the REAL magic happens.  It’s a magic like no other, something human beings have pondered about for centuries.  We have rejuvenated an old piece of technology with new data being fed in for its audience to understand.

That concept, of modernizing informational technology, really makes you think.  It tells you something about what we have accomplished in this thing called life.  We are finally creating the tools man has dared to dream of centuries ago.  On the other hand, it presents this notion that this could be the beginning of much more to come.

In this case, we must ask ourselves – what does the future hold for informational technology?  Will there be any other further advancements that man has not thought of?  If such intriguing concepts were to be introduced, what key features will they hold?

To think there are still ideas that man has not dreamed of yet is the silver lining in this vast advancement of technology.  A lot has evolved over time, especially within these last few decades.  All of that dreaming inside your mind is connecting among other dreamers in this world.  What we dared to dream of, whether be rational or irrational, is finally coming into realization.  It is then, and only then, that you realize that we have come such a long way from where were beforehand.

There is no waiting for the future because the future is already here.  You never need to ponder about what the future holds – the key lies within the device you hold on the palm of your hands.

Musk’s Hyper-loop Tunnel Into the Future

Elon Musk has been all around the news lately, known as one of the hottest entrepreneurs around.  He is the founder and CEO of companies such as Tesla, Inc. as well as SpaceX.  When he isn’t working on projects involving Teslas or space, Musk is always out there in the public eye.  One of his recent stints included consuming some cannabis on The Joe Rogan Experience (which you can read up more on here).

Whatever the case may be, Elon Musk definitely has some bright ideas for the country.  His latest project involves a huge tunnel in Los Angeles.  That tunnel will make way for something known as… hyper-loop travel.

You heard me right – hyper-loop traveling is happening very soon!  Elon Musk released a video this past weekend showcasing him walking through the two-mile tunnel created by his company the Boring Company (a subsidiary of SpaceX).  The tunnel extends from SpaceX’s office in Hawthorne, California to an LA suburb.  This tunnel is set to open on December 10th,with the aim to reduce traffic congestion within Los Angeles.  These tunnels will utilize autonomous, electric skates to move about 8-16 passengers at a speed of 124-155 mph.

It sounds like something straight out of Futurama – human beings entering an enclosed tube, only to be shot hundreds of miles per hour from one destination to another.  Human beings will soon be able to travel to farther destination within HOURS, even MINUTES.  Hyper-loop traveling is something man has been dreaming about for DECADES.

Hyper-loop traveling is the future of transportation here in America.  The science behind this concept is so innovative and revolutionary; but in a sense, it also takes some time to ponder about.  Human beings have been traveling over hundreds of miles in such quick speed (through airplanes and by trains), but hyper-loop is a completely unique mode of traveling.  Before we start establishing hyper-loop tunnels all across the nation, we will have to start small with Los Angeles.

Nevertheless, the fact that hyper-loop traveling is becoming more of a reality is truly a glorious thing to behold.  It won’t be long until tunnels start being constructed all across the nation.  Soon we will be living in a world where Boston citizens will be able to land in New York City via hyper-loop tunnels in under an hour.  Just imagine the countless number of business opportunities that await us in the near future.

With that, Elon Musk is one of many pioneers of the not-so-distant future.  More hyper-loop tunnels plan to open across Los Angeles, connecting more paths underneath the bustling city.  This is a PR miracle that will make history for the years to come in the name of technology.

You won’t have to dream about the future anymore – because the future is already here.

Netflix’s Maniac


Image result for The Good Cop

This Monday I kicked off the blog week with the latest Netflix series The Good Cop.  Tony Danza and Josh Groban played bumbling cops in this entertaining cop comedy-drama series.  I got hooked after the first few episodes because of its modern twist on the whodunit series.  It was one of Netflix’s amazing releases to the digital library.

The Good Cop was one of two series that will be discussed this week.  Our next latest Netflix series takes us into a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial.  Two people enter the trial for their own purposes, only to dive into one wild journey of their own.  This is Maniac.

            Maniac is the story of Owen Milgrim (Jonah Hill) and Annie Landsberg (Emma Stone), two strangers who were drawn into a pharmaceutical trial by Neberdine Pharmaceutical Biotech (NPB).  Annie is fixated on her broken relationships with her mother and sister.  Owen is the fifth son of affluent New York Industrialists and has struggled with schizophrenia his whole life.  Neither of their lives turned great, so the promise of a radical kind of pharmaceutical treatment drew them and ten other people into NPD for a three-day drug trial.  They are assured that this trial will rid them of all of their problems permanently.

This series starts off a bit slow; but a few episodes in and the true psychological trip begins.  Participants ingest pills during the duration of the trial, with each pill introducing a new adventure for Owen and Annie.  Throughout each journey, they are haunted by familiar faces from their lives.  The purpose of the trip was for them to face their personal demons.  Owen had his issues with his family while Annie feels responsible for the death of her sister Ellie.

Almost every episode contained a mind-boggling, psychological acid trip.  It mirrored off a similar setup to Inception where the two characters were taking part of each other’s dream.  During these vivid dreams, Owen and Annie start working together to conquer their demons.  Each dream (brought on by the pill) helped bring them closer to finding a better life.

With that, Maniac was truly a trippy sci-fi series to watch.  Owen and Annie are brought into this Inception-styled procedure where they take special pharmaceuticals each day, with the hope that they find peace in their life.  It won’t be renewed for another season anytime soon, but it still makes for an enjoyable show.
