Over this page, I will be discussing my argument on halting advances in technology, and another for continuing the advancement in technology.
A good argument to halt human advancement in technology is that if we continue creating technologies and researching sciences to re-create living matter (cloning), people will not want to die, and will clone themselves, and if they do that, combined with the new off-spring of other human beings, the world will become hugely overpopulated, than it is even now, and the world will not be able to accommodate the basic needs of everyone.
The only way to counteract this overpopulation, would either be restricting the amount of off-spring each country is allowed to produce, stop advancement in medicine, or make genocide legal, of course these kind of sacrilegious acts are against what many people believe in, even if it is only administrated to clones.
Therefore there will be arguments, that blossom into fights, then wars, even a world war, all over what people’s ideation is right or wrong.
If these feuds DO blossom into world wars, then it is highly likely that we will use nuclear weapons, or some other weapon of mass destruction that we have not invented yet, and wipe human kind, including clones and “real” people, into extinction.
Other technologies we create may also be catastrophic to the human race, for example, “Artificial Intelligence” may wipe “real” humans out of existence by declaring war over some un-foreseen circumstance.
“Fission” may have some sort of environmental side effect, un-foreseen, just as radio-activity from Nuclear Power plants, and atom bombs was unforseen when they were developed.
There are in-finite possibilities for technology advancements that the human race can endeavour to discover the secrets of, but not all of these possibilities may be of the best interest to our daily life, in-fact could be the exact opposite.
