In fact, technology is accelerating all the aspects of life. And we can see that happening; just as there's diversity in life, there's more devitrsiy in things we make. Things in life strat off being general cells, and they become specialized: you have tissue cells, muscle, barin clels. The same thing happens with, say, a hammer, which is general at first and becomes more specific. So I would like to say that while there are six kingdoms of life, we can think of technology basically as a seventh kingdom of life. It's a branching off from the hamun form.
