Technology or Consciousness? short Technology is a low level answer to need and is only a low level sphere of influence and is quite limited compared to the power of consciousness. It is consciousness that runs the universe, but it is divine consciousness that has the greatest power. This is why the human has such tremendous potential because humans are divine and are imbued with divine consciousness and have unlimited capability inherent in their make-up. This is the true future for humanity if humanity chooses it. If you wish to stay a civilization staring into your cell phone screens and texting and being bathed in subconscious mind control manipulation via the electromagnetic emanations of your electronic devices, that is a kind of choice. It is made in ignorance at the moment to be sure but the consequences are very, very real. It is not a path to divinity, it is that simple.
