Perhaps not, but the news that Scientists have developed a Quantum Clock which only loses (or gains) 1 second every 3.7 billion years has interesting implications.
Currently the accuracy of GPS positioning systems is limited by the accuracy of the clock used to measure the signal and is currently around 10 metres.
The Quantum clock will allow a positional accuracy of less than 1 metre.
“So what” you may say, but consider this – vehicles could be tracked and controlled automatically, maximizing throughput and minimizing congestion, particularly in highly congested areas.
Human beings with implants could be pinpointed to within 1 metre leading to more effective control of criminal and deviant elements.
Probably the greatest application will be military, smart bombs could be developed to target the enemy more accurately and minimize collateral damage.
The day will be further subdivided into smaller and smaller fragments to increase productivity and make us more productive.
We will strive to make best use of every Giga second.
Our lifespans will be measured and recorded to the infinitesimally smallest fraction.
In the meantime we will continue to waste hours and days and weeks saturating our brains with electronic noise from all directions.
