Abstract: Technology is a state of progress which depends on unbalanced structures of human functions and relations. Technology was once the vital element of mankind to survive in nature. But today, technology has reached a perfection level above any natural entity including homo technologicus. Thus, the natural selection has become the technological selection, and technology which was once a servant for mankind, has become the master. An attitude towards life which does not depend on ethical, logical or aesthetic principles only brings high technology to the wealthy and the powerful, discriminating the rest including nature itself.
