Knowledge, Technology, and Wealth
In Japan this winter, from December to February it was very cold.
But in March it is not so cold at all. Now cherry blossoms are fully blooming in Tokyo, the second earliest full-bloom of sakura (cherry blossoms) in record of Tokyo.
As we have observed the world, it is now clear that wealth and knowledge cannot save people. Rich people in advanced countries have wealth developed, produced, and realized by modern technology. Systems that support, protect, and keep their wealth are built on various types of deep knowledge. But, those rich people are simply bad people, Put simply, with such knowledge, technology, and wealth, they have become servants of the Devil. They have no great spiritual contents in their minds and souls.
So, at best, those who are poor in terms of moral value would control the whole world with modern systems but without any concerns about human matters, ethical matters, and spiritual matters.
If science and technology continue to progress while a human ethical level is still so low, a great disaster should occur in future. For example, one desperate terrorist group might easily acquire information, over the Internet or cellular phones, about how to build a nuclear bomb and where to get material for the bomb. And, they might easily make such a bomb. Or they may make biological weapons so easily, using advanced technology being offered in some convenient market.
So, great knowledge and technology will provide great fortunes for some civilized people in advanced and developing countries, but terrorists might also try to take their share of wealth through confusion and a turmoil they might be able to cause by use of such a bomb and weapons.
We had better stop progress of our science and technology at the present level if we want to avoid a future disaster which can be worse than the 9/11 Terror and the 3/11 Tsunami combined in addition to Fukushima Daiichi.
