I think human technology is pretty cool, and I most definitely prefer to be alive now than in 1709, but let's face it folks, we're still a pretty laughable primitive species!
I mean, we've got air travel, the radio, television, antibiotics, iPods, smartphones, the Internet, and we've supposedly gone to the moon some six times and back, but is this really the best we can come up with in 10,000 years of recorded human history?! WHAT?! I know, I know, I'm such a demanding ungrateful bastard, but if you remember the Star Wars franchise, the humans in that galaxy were able to travel to all sorts of planets and moons with effortless speed! I mean, look at the Death Star for crying out loud--an amazing space station that could harbor thousands of personnel and destroy planets on command! What do we even have in our own reality that even comes close to this?! ZILCH! The 20th century is historic for introducing more technological advancements than any other, and it truly revolutionized our lives in many ways and even let us live a bit longer, but I dunno man, I'm frankly not that impressed when considering how much more ahead of the game we could AND SHOULD be. I know all this crap takes money, but to still be driving cars/flying jets that burn that nasty fuel further destroying our ozone layer and exacerbating global warming; there really has to be a better way! We're so painfully primitive! We should be living like The Jetsons by now! I'm serious! If we can imagine it, and show it on television or film, why not put it into practice?! It takes almost a day to jet travel to the other side of the world?! That's bloody ridiculous! RIDICULOUS!!!
This is all starting to create a big shift in my perception of reality--I think I am starting to believe in extraterrestrial life! I mean, for years I've thought it a silly and insane idea that there could be other sentient life forms out there as smart as us, but this has been my own egotistical biases at work, for only now do I look at humanity as a whole and realize we are just not as supreme as we think we are. As horrible as it is to admit, Nazi Germany did some good in bringing us revolutionary technology still in use today, but it is probably thanks to that Roswell crash in New Mexico back in 1947 that we got even more advanced knowledge than ever before. These UFOs are real damnit--and so are those aliens maneuvering them. Have I gone mad? Am I stoned as I write this?! NO! The longer I spend in that dead-end job, the longer I just plain live in this boring monotony, the more I think about these endless philosophical questions! And I have come to the startling (for me) conclusion, that we are not alone! We just can't be! We're too darn primitive, and these aliens are watching us, helping us in certain ways, and at other times painfully abducting us perhaps?! EEK! Oh don't mind me, maybe I have lost my marbles or gotten high one too many times, but it's all starting to make sense, even though I feel more confused than ever before. This universe is just too damn big and complex!
I'm going to see this band live in concert tonight near my house! And all four of them are so good-looking too:
