To begin things sharply, it would be appropriate to state the fact that the world is connected to a network. A network is defined as a system, or group that works together, and everyone that has lived in a city or been involved with a school project has been routed into a system of people. In a group project each person is given a task to complete that builds upon others to achieve a further goal just like the brain, with each individual neuron connected by a specific task. On a larger scale, the brain can continue on to be compared to the internet, with it being a vast connection of computers across the globe. All of these computers are uploading information, and building to the large network database.That means that society is in …show more content…
To begin things sharply, it would be appropriate to state the fact that the world is connected to a network. A network is defined as a system, or group that works together, and everyone that has lived in a city or been involved with a school project has been routed into a system of people. In a group project each person is given a task to complete that builds upon others to achieve a further goal just like the brain, with each individual neuron connected by a specific task. On a larger scale, the brain can continue on to be compared to the internet, with it being a vast connection of computers across the globe. All of these computers are uploading information, and building to the large network database.That means that society is in control of it’s most cherished network. In “Breakpoint” by Jeff Stibel, the network of information accurately named the “internet” is dissected, offering a biological and societal viewpoint on it’s future after it’s breakpoint. In all species on earth, a breakpoint has been reached. The author describes this occurrence as being the time at which something exceeds the carrying capacity of it’s environment and regards this situation as critical. Critically speaking, there are limits set within every premise and those said limits have been tested and proven to be the most efficient in the long run. Now in order for a limit to be set, the optimal test would be to exceed that limit until it’s breakpoint is established. Those pre-existing
