5. Let's discuss

At present even not very experienced people feel that the progress in computer area is advancing stunningly fast. Of course, it's almost impossible to foresee what will happen even in a year if things will go that way. Nevertheless stir up your imagination and explain what, according to your opinion, kind of hardware and software will be available, let's say, in ten years. Moot question, isn't it? But you have all the possibilities to check your prediction. Just wait.

If you paid your attention to the quotation at the beginning of this unit, you could not but remember the kernel of it: man's limbs will atrophy due to the computer progress.

What about human's brain?

The axiom asserts: computers do much mental work for people; as a consequence, people do not exercise mentally; hence, their brains are atrophying gradually. Is it so? What is your opi­nion?

It's a sort of a joke, but try to object. Be so kind as to give full answer.

Relax a bit

He who laughs last probably doesn't understand the joke.

Progress might have been all right once but it has gone on too long.

O. Nash

The cloning of humans is on the most of the lists of things to worry about from Science, along with behavior control, genetic engineering, transplanted heads, computer poetry and the unrestrained growth of plastic flowers.
