Thoughts :: Its 21st Century and I am lucky


Its 21st century and I am lucky. We are living in the world of technology and digital media - the information age. Everything (well, I guess not everything but almost everything) is overwhelmed and deeply integrated with technological mechanism. The computer we use, the iPhone that we always text with. Technology has become something that we cannot live without - it became our life.

But the importance here is that we are here. Let me rephrase that again: We are here, at this very moment in the 21st century engulfed in the era of incredible times. Not a single time in human history have we experienced such dramatical development which radically changes our life. To put easily, it is a first time ever that the fantasy stories we always thought were fictional are actually becoming real. But not only that, its becoming real, fast.

There are few main reasons that I am deeply appreciating the advancement of technology and the first one is: potential. The introduction of digital technology seems like unlimted amount of legos are gifted to a child. Now, that child now has a God given ability - we are able to create almost anything with it (could sound like minecraft). We now see countless possibilities of what we can do with this technology.

With code, we can build and craft the world digitally and reign, without harming anybody. In my personal opinion, this is incredible. And more incredible fact is that anyone in the world will be able to change the world, if they knew coding. The ability to effect the humanity in such intimate manner is one of the things that makes me feel greatful. I think that the ability and the privilages that we have now is immeasuable.

Our lives is changing radically with technology - companies like Google, Apple, et cetra are changing how we live. They have a vision in their mind what the future is like and they are making it real. It is no longer a joke. They are serious. It has never been so exciting to wait for what is awaiting for us in the future. Elon Musk once said:

And we need things in life that are exciting and inspiring. It can’t just be about solving some awful problem. There have to be reasons to get up in the morning.
— Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and Space X

There have to be reasons to get up in the morning.

Considering the priviIages we have, I think we should be thankful by the fact that we are living in this era, and it is our responsibility to develop this technology in a positive manner for the future generation - it is important to take this technology to the next level and let the next generation carry them on because those are the core values of why we should be developing the technology. I deeply respect the  advancement of technology in human history. I feel that it is important to carry on the core values of development of technology, which I believe to be: 'Enriching the life of human beings in a way that allows the human beings live and thrive with full potential'. A good example of a company which follows this core value could be Apple.

In a nutshell, I am extremely excited to see what is waiting for us and the fact that I, personally can play with what has given to us. Our potential is still dormant. And the potential we have inside us is beyond imaginable. This already proves that we shouldn't be sitting down with our backs, gazing and being satisfied with what we already have, but take risks and explore forward.

Now, let's go and make some reasons to get up in the morning.
