Join our discussion of technological breaks through, which can dramatically change our lives.
Once you've watched a video about a break-through in innovation, Google and YouTube start showing you more and more similar materials, and you feel that your brain starts melting and the solid reality you used to imagine transforms into something evasive, hard to grasp and comprehend. The futurist Alvin Toffler termed this psychological state "future shock", which he described as personal perception of "too much change in too short a period of time".
