I hope we only do research to train students in how to research. I thought it was only done on subjects where funding was given because someone wanted the answers. Of course you are right but you need more guys like Bill Gates to fund useful research.
i know what you mean, but human kind seems to have a need to try and improve on everything. and necessity truly is the mother of invention. if someone is doing research on something, they must feel there is a need to do so. we should also consider who the research is being done for. this will give us a clue as to why it is being done.
they recently created a bionic pancreas to stabilise peoples blood sugar levels, we'd rather do this than modify our lifestyles?? they invented a multimillion dollar machine so that the original superman actor, i forget his name, could breathe on his own for 20 seconds. once all seeds have been modified genetically there is no original structure, i hope we do not end up in a completely synthetic world but there are natural irreplacable resources disappearing before my eyes its a little scary :)
No one said anything about the 3rd dimension being easy or understandable ......lol
It would be nice if something would point a finger to were people should focus their efforts but it really doesn’t happen (and no government cannot do it) We get allot of people doing allot of different things and sometimes that seems wasteful and sometimes it is.
Research goes to where more money can be made.
We could all have something if it was done with a thought for all. Instead, a few have much and most have little.
Some things make you so angry. The greed of a few makes life miserable for so many. That sux!
