It has been a long time since the invention of the transistor. Unfortunately, humanity has so far failed to come up with something better. Nowadays, electronic systems contain billions of transistors, yet they are not able to operate fully independently and intelligently.
Advanced attempts are being made in this respect, but so far these are only attempts. The world of zeros and ones seems to be very distant from what we see in nature. For example, the brain of a honey bee is 1 mm3, weighs about 1 mg and has less than 1 million nerve cells. Human brain for example weighs on average 1.3 kg and consists of 85 billion nerve cells.
So what about transistor? This is, of course, an important invention in the history of mankind, which has a huge influence on the shaping of our lives. However, it seems to me that this is a road which will quickly end. Soon the possibilities of miniaturization of devices will reach their limits. Nowadays even billions of transistors are already being packed in a small space, however they are not able to operate fully autonomously. Have anyone managed to build a transistor-based honey bee with all it's properties and abilities? Of course not. That is why I think it is so important to turn humanity towards nature and the surrounding natural world. Without getting to know natures' secrets in depth, we will be condemned to an end of development. The possibilities of one-and-zero will soon end.
Currently, a lot of money is being invested in new technologies for the production of miniature chips and processors. The race is fast. Well, this is certainly a good solution for the owners of technological giants. At the same time, however, research into the brain structure of animals and humans seems incomparably less. This is obviously not a secure investment and business. Are we therefore not making a fundamental mistake? Will anyone finally understand how honey bee brain works? Apparently, the technology lobby does not yet see the end of the transistor's capabilities.
And what about quantum computer?
I believe that the problem is much more serious. Electronics is closely related to physics. But more questions than answers arise every day in this area!
