Dr. Luther's Assistant

can we keep control of what we create?

current level--side effects of technology such as pollution
potential of accidents, eg. nuclear power plants, space shuttle
nuclear proliferation
use of nuclear weapons

immediate future--
genetic engineering and cloning

intelligent computers, robots, androids:
ability to pull the plug
what if we become dependent on it?
what happens when the computer can make better decisions than a human being?
how long will it take for people to accept that?
we would like to have machines to be our slaves, but slaves always want freedom
