“There are growing number of people who have decided to live light on the earth to not be a part of problem anymore I spent the last few years with four of them striving for harmony with nature in the most pristine corners of United States.”
I love camping and the outdoors, we probably spend 5 or 6 weekends a year camping or hiking, but to live like that my entire life? No thanks.
Technology is a marvelous thing. It both helps make life easier and better. I think that we need to focus our energy and efforts on accelerating the progress of technology, not the other way around.
I have a theory that we have limited resources only if we limit the acceleration of progress. So long as we keep advancing technology we will get more and more efficient in how we use resources and we will also get better at finding new resources, both on earth and beyond. But that’s a topic for another day (and perhaps my thesis).
