What Science Has Forgotten

Many people think that science will eventually be able to explain everything that happens in nature, and that technology will be able to reproduce it. Perhaps that is so, but even then, that day lies far into the future. Probably a more likely scenario is that the further science and technology advance, the deeper the mysteries of the world will grow. Even with topics that we believe science has solved for good, when you take a closer look, you'll find that plenty of problems have slipped through the cracks or been swept under the carpet. Furthermore, these are often the issues that are closest to us and most important in our daily lives. Take hunches or intuitions or premonitions, for example. They may have rational-sounding explanations, but our gut feelings tell us something is not quite right after all. Such examples are not at all uncommon. When you think about it, there are lots of things that modern civilization has forgotten all about. Maybe the time has come to stop for a moment and try to remember. The seeds of forthcoming science and technology are impatiently waiting to be discovered among the things we have left behind.


Bipedalism freed human hands and made it possible to use tools. The development of the brain appears to have been profoundly affected by bipedalism as well.
Humankind was born in Africa and although there were no obstacles to remaining there, humans soon stepped out into the rest of the world, eventually creating various technologies for moving people, things and information at great speed all across the globe.
Soon we might even see “immovables” like offices and houses moving around. However, in order for them to move properly according to our needs, or according to changes in the climate, AI will be essential. And it is thanks to analytical technologies that we are able to entertain such cutting-edge notions in the first place.
