Electricity, food, water, sewer systems, phone and computer connections, transportation, and healthcare fall into this category. Just about everything else we have come to expect and experience as we go through our day depends on technology.
Life has become more complex as we transferred the task we did in the past to machines, and this could come back to haunt us.
