We like control. We, as in the human race, have developed ways to control disease, control what is put into food, control which channel is on the television and control policies and government. But we can’t (really) control the weather.
And that’s a good thing. Don’t get me wrong, I think technology has a lot of powerful, beautiful benefits, but I also think it is extremely scary. Imagine living in a world where we could control the weather? It gives me nightmares.
