Our Dependency on Machines

November 29, 2011

It feels kind of pathetic that we need so many machines to live our daily first-world lives.

Some machines we all use:

Coal digging machine
Coal transport machine
Coal burning machine
Electricity Transmission machine
Fridge
Water pump
Car/train/bus
Computer
Phone
Aircon
Ploughing machine
Harvesting machine
Flour mill
Oven
Cash register

Could you enjoy life without any of these?

    And you’ve only scratched the surface there of the devices and underlying technology we don’t even know we rely on!
    It’s good to know that people are working on recovering the basic kick-starters in the event a planet-wide reboot is required!:
