I think that with a lot of things in this world, we have reached our limits to how high we can climb. Man is constantly developing and revitalizing his ideas but there are areas that are what they are. Take cereal, for instance. I have been buying and consuming the same cereal for my whole life. When I was 5, I remember sitting at the breakfast table as my mother served us our bowls. I am doing the same thing for my kids today, over fifty years later. Maybe the box has changes and maybe they add a new flavor of cereal every once in a while but in its most fundamental ways, cereal has not changed and I say that it will not be any different in the next 50 years either.
Now take the automobile and I know a lot of you are going to disagree with me on this, but again, look at the essence of the automobile in the year 1915 and look at it today, it is the same basic idea. We have four wheels, a windshield, and a place to put the gas in, all the same. When I was a kid there was a lot of talk about the flying vehicle. The flying car was supposed to be accessible to the average man by the 80’s and here we are long gone the year 2000 and we are still flat on the ground. Again, like cereal, cars will be the same as they are now in twenty more years. The car is just right as it is and if they were going to make any real changes in it, don’t you think they would have done it by now?
Now let’s look at the other side of this thing, the things that have changed. I am talking about sciatica surgery here. The operations they are doing today make what they were doing ten years ago look like they came out of the dark ages. Sciatica just keeps getting better and better and better. I am amazed by the progress they make in that field. It seems like every time I turn around they are developing a new way to treat peoples back pain. Talk about a continuous and total revolution in the world of back treatment. I just can’t understand why the rest of the world can’t be more like sciatica surgery, and keep climbing to higher and higher peaks. You look at the world of spine surgery, for instance. Now there is a surgery that cannot keep up with the same pace as what is going on in the world of sciatica operations. I am not the most imaginative person in the world so for the life of me, I cannot imagine what they are going to come up with next. Maybe in the future, when you need a sciatica operation, you won’t even have to leave your house. Having the operation done will be like ordering a pizza, who knows. One thing is for sure, the flying car probably not going to be here any time soon but the world of sciatica surgery is going places that only the brave can imagine.
