Technology's Exponential Growth

It was said in the 20th century technology advanced 1000 X's the previous 19 centuries combined. The 21st however is projected to be 1000 X'S all the progress made in that century. I repeat, the gaines in technological advance in both understanding and application will be a THOUSAND times what we just made in the last CENTURY.

Incredible. In the 20th we went from horses to auto's, brought about the computer age, phones, microwaves, nuclear bombs, the list is endless. AND yet all these advances in technology is going to pale in comparison to what lies ahead.

When we start to see kids toys like this from Best of Consumer Electronics Show, we know that mind reading technology will soon be available to all.

Relax your thoughts, and the ball descends. For a challenge, guide the ball through an 'obstacle course' of hoops.* AP/Mattel

"But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end, many shall run to and fro

and knowledge shall increase." (Daniel 12:4)

Two signs given to Daniel to identify the end of times were the rapid increase in travel and knowledge---at an exponential rate.
