Today, we can send masses of information wirelessly to the other side of the world. We have a permanent residence orbiting the Earth in space. We have explored the deepest depths of the ocean and the surface of Mars. We have access to pretty much any piece of knowledge we seek by searching for it online. We have harnessed the power of the wind and the sun to produce electricity. We have created black holes in labs and have measured objects in atoms.
Yet we still use fistfuls of paper to clean ourselves with when we use the toilet.
