The exponential proliferation of technology (bio-, nano-, and more) compels those who live the examined life to reevaluate the fundamental meaning of being human. When divorced from protological origins (the image of God) and eschatological ends (the Beatific Vision), technology manifests the nihilistic drive to use force to conquer the real. Christian theology has the resources both to offer a prophetic critique of this nihilism and to redeem the technological project through the transformation of its meanings by the wisdom of God.
