Expecting Technology to fill the gap is a bit like repeatedly smashing your skull into a door to get to the other side. The door may be an illusion and the pain we feel with each bang a creation of our mind, but the provisional reality tells us this action will certainly cause brain injury if we continue.
Oh sure, most of the what we see when we look at the door is space, yet for some reason smashing our head repeatedly against it never seems to pass between those pesky atoms. When we look at technology we see a promise of getting to the other shore with less effort than before. The door is composed of atoms that stop us and technology is comprised of clever promises composed by marketers.
