2084 The Secularist Revolution
How Technology Changes the World
What happens when highly-advanced devices able to translate any and every spoken and written languages in the world are invented and released to the public?
2084 The Secularist Revolution ponders the metaphysical aspects of the birth of the universe and of life. What is the beginning of time? How did everything come to be? According to religion, God or a supernatural being created darkness and light, time and space, land and water—everything living and nonliving. How has this belief shaped the lives of people throughout the years?
For centuries, religion and politics have ruled over us, set the norms we follow, and controlled how we live our lives. How will the creation of a universal translator change this seemingly unbreakable hold?
Stanley Yokell explores the possibilities and the promise of a secularist revolution—a complete separation of people, church, and state—with the destruction of the language barriers.
