Unlimited source of energy
Paper details:
Information Needed for Assignment:
Homeostasis refers to the resistance to change (Alcorn, 2003). It is a desire to maintain status quo. There are many reasons for technological homeostasis. One reason is the fear of the unknown. Human beings tend to avoid change to avoid the unknown. A second reason is anxiety and adjustment. Fortunately, humans have a large supply of defense mechanisms to deal with anxiety. One of those is resistance. A third reason is psychophysiological restructuring. Our brain stores knowledge along certain paths. As we age, those paths become more rigid allowing for less restructuring thus less adapting to new concepts or technology. Finally, specialization, breaking up the labor among a large number of people allows each person to become an expert in their part of the labor, spurs a separation of understanding. It creates a separation between those who understand the science and those who dont understand it (the general public).
Paper Prompt:
