It is worth noting that not only technology is advancing our evolutionary potential - both in terms of tools and applications - but also our scientific investigations into quantum phenomena. In fact, it seems most probable that the quantum field will be the next shift. Quantum computers are already being used for phenomenal calculations, and, perhaps more importantly for the investigations here, quantum physical behaviour is emerging as the next 'big thing' in research: biophysics.
In these terms I specifically refer to quantum coherence, and the concept of biophotons, and bioholography. For an interesting article on this area, see 'Quantum Coherence and Conscious Experience' by Mae-Wan Ho: also available through the 'Co-Globalize' link on this blog.
