Human beings have lived on the earth for millions of years. Although this time seems to be relatively long, from the perspective of the evolution of life, the speed of human development is already very amazing.
It took 160 million years for dinosaurs to evolve into intelligent life, while humans only took millions of years. From the primitive society to the civilized age, mankind has only been around 5,000 years ago. After entering the civilized age, human development has also entered the fast lane. Finally, hundreds of years ago, we entered the road of technological development.
The changes that science and technology have brought to mankind are amazing. Although the industrial age has been more than 300 years, the time to truly lead the leap of mankind’s science and technology is only a hundred years. The development of science and technology in the past 100 years has enabled human civilization to achieve a qualitative leap. We not only have a comprehensive understanding of the earth, but also stepped out of the earth and began to explore and understand the universe.
One hundred years of scientific and technological development time has brought unimaginable tremendous progress to mankind, which shows how great the power of science and technology is. But we know that science has no end, and the power of science and technology that mankind is now proud of is insignificant and very small from the perspective of the universe.
With the current human technology, we can only be regarded as a low-level civilization. Scientists once divided the cosmic civilization into four levels. According to the classification criteria, humans are now only 0.7 level civilization, not even the lowest level civilization. And the advanced civilization in the universe is the existence we yearn for, so what science and technology do humans have to master to have the hope of advancing to an advanced civilization? In this regard, scientists have summarized the following three technologies. As long as humans master all of them, it is possible to enter the ranks of advanced civilizations.
The first technology: genetic technology. If you want to ask what is the most mysterious and complicated thing in the universe, it must be life. The mystery of life lies in genes. Only by cracking the code of genes can we truly understand life.
We all know that human beings have to go through birth, old age, sickness and death throughout their lives. This seems to be a natural law that can never be passed. So is the fate of birth, old age, sickness and death really impossible for humans to overcome? Of course not. Life, death, disease and death are also an external manifestation of the genetic level.
A series of genetic changes have created the existence of birth, old age, sickness and death. For human beings, disease and longevity are two important thresholds that stand in front of us. Everyone hopes that he can be healthy and live longer throughout his life. Since ancient times, diseases have been plagued human beings, and they have been harvesting human lives continuously.
Even now with advanced technology, we still cannot cure many diseases. Although we all know that everyone cannot escape the fate of final death, we don’t want to reach the end under the condition of disease. It is believed that it is the good wish of most people to be able to achieve a natural end of life. However, in the real world, not many people can achieve a natural end of life. Most of them end their lives due to diseases.
Life expectancy is something that everyone expects. Even the long-lived elderly in their 100s hope that they can live longer. Lifespan is also very important to the rapid development of human science and technology. We all know that science and technology can achieve continuous leaps without the efforts and dedication of those great scientists.
The contributions and achievements of scientists are often more and more popular. However, due to the limitation of lifespan, when scientists have mastered a lot of knowledge and are about to make great contributions to human science and technology, their lifespan has come, and finally they have to leave the world. .
If Einstein can live to the present and believe that human science and technology can still advance for at least 50 years, this is the importance of great scientists to human civilization. And if we want to increase the life span of human beings, we need the contribution of genetic technology. Only when genetic technology achieves a leap, diseases and lifespan can be sublimated, and human civilization can also usher in faster development.
The second science and technology: artificial intelligence, human beings have been able to leap in science and technology in the past 100 years, and there is a hero that we must be thankful for, and it is the computer. It is human beings who have created computers, and more and more complex data processing can be released.
You must know that scientific research and exploration require a large amount of data calculations and simulations, and it is difficult to rely on manual labor to complete these huge data tasks. Only powerful computers can handle these data processing tasks. Artificial intelligence is a sublimated version of computers. It is far more powerful than computers and can help humans complete more complex and dangerous tasks.
The future of mankind will inevitably go to the starry sky, and in the exploration of the universe and various tasks in the universe, it is difficult for human beings to do some dangerous tasks, such as mining and exploration on a bad planet.
The survivability of artificial intelligence machines is very powerful, and they can survive in harsh ecological environments. He can replace human beings to work on dangerous planets and work in dangerous positions. In the future, human space mining will require a large number of intelligent robots.
The rapid development of artificial intelligence can drive human science and technology to a new stage, enable human civilization to achieve another leap, and raise the level of civilization.
The third technology: the mastery of time and space. After the Big Bang of the Singularity occurred 13.8 billion years ago, time and space were born. Time and space are the core things of the universe, as well as the most basic and core laws of the universe.
So what is the use of time and space? In fact, its usefulness has become bigger. Let’s take spatial probability as an example. I believe many people know that the universe is so vast that we can’t imagine it. We want to explore the more distant starry sky or even explore the entire universe, so we need to be able to reach all corners of the universe at ultra-fast speeds.
But Einstein’s theory of relativity tells us that the speed of objects in the universe can only be infinitely close to the speed of light. Even the speed of photons is only the speed of light. Although the speed of light is an incredible speed in our eyes, it is still a tortoise speed in front of the cosmic scale.
Even if a spacecraft travels at the speed of light, it is impossible for us to explore the Milky Way. We must know that the diameter of the Milky Way is at least 100,000 light-years, and it will take at least 100,000 years to travel straight at the speed of light. It can be seen from this that we cannot explore the farther starry sky by relying on the speed of light, let alone explore the entire universe.
At this time, scientists thought of space jumps and wormholes, which are super-light-speed navigation modes. Einstein’s general theory of relativity also supports the existence of wormholes and the possibility of space jumps. To realize this mode of interstellar navigation, it is necessary to master the mysteries of space and truly understand what space is, so that space can be used by us to achieve the purpose of interstellar shuttle.
Time is even more mysterious. It may bring us time and space, that is, as many people know, go back to the past, to the future, or even travel to another universe. Of course, the existence of time traversal is still an unknown at present. We know too little about time, and we still can’t really understand what time is.
The above three technologies are very important to mankind. As long as they can be mastered by mankind, we may become a high-level civilization and a civilization of the hegemonic level of the universe. At that time, the universe is so big that we can fly freely.
