Outside of fictional works, I am not a fan of sorcery, but I really, really need for technology to develop faster and be a real match for sorcery.
If you were looking for missing object and went to a sorcerer, out would come a mystic ball, a magic wand, or an enchanted mirror, and your missing item would be promptly located. Simple. Well, perhaps not quite simple. You might need the tooth of a unicorn, or the hair off the back of a dinosaur, or something of he sort for the enchantment to work. But bar the crazy requirements, sorcery works.
Seeing as I am not a fan of sorcery, why not look to technology? I need to be able to run a Google search to find my missing wrist watch. Or ask Siri to locate where my missing power bank is. Or ask HERE Maps if, when and where there will be accidents along my route on that out-of-town road trip. Imagine a pregnant woman asking Siri for the gender of her baby without having to go for the obligatory scan.
Yes! Magic. Sorcery. That is the idea. Honestly, life will be so much better if and when technology catches up with hocus pocus. Perhaps someday, we will be able to see the future, teleport and carry out a whole lot of cool things – all via technology. For now, though, I just need to be able to find my missing items. That will be a good enough start. Search would be worth the while then. Totally.
