"Yes, Mydesign, and this is pretty much true in all of life, isn't it? It's all about perspective. If you want to look at things positively, great, but there are those that choose the negative way in many aspects of life, and this is what leads to problems. Since technology was created by humans, human nature like this comes into play in a big way."

Elizabeth, there is an old saying "Man propose and God dispose", in new tech era it's changed by "Likely minded peoples propose and negative minded peoples disposes"

The Iron Man suit would be handy for sure...I'll have ot revisit the Aliens films to see the cargo mover you're talking about. But anything that would make moving house easier is fine with me, especially as I am facing a potential move myself soon!

Personally, along with the Iron Man suit, I want the cargo mover Ripley drove in Aliens. It would make moving into a new house that much easier.

"Yes, in a way it kind of reminds me of the Internet, Mydesign. It has been a really amazing idea that's changed our lives in so many ways, but people like hackers take advantage of it and use it for ill purposes"

Elizabeth, exactly. Certain peoples are approaching technology with negative mind and continue with similar experiments.

"That's exactly the conundrum with some of this enhancement medical technology. Where do you draw the line between improving people's lives when something has been taken away from them physically, and just improving a human's physicality just for the sake of doing it?"

Elizabeth, that line has to be drawn by the policy makers.

"The more I write about some of the new medical breakthroughs, the more I become both impressed and even a little frightened at what is becoming possible. In some ways it's really incredible and these breakthroughs will really benefit humankind. In others, I worry about some kind of Frankenstein scenario! But progress marches on, regardless."

Elizabeth, when we look from certain angle it reflects more for human advancement. But through other angle can lead to disaster too. I mean the consequence when technology falls into wrong hands.

Indeed, Mydesign, you as always make a very good point. That's exactly the conundrum with some of this enhancement medical technology. Where do you draw the line between improving people's lives when something has been taken away from them physically, and just improving a human's physicality just for the sake of doing it?

The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies.
