    Unlock capabilities

    "At the same time, we are unlocking formidable new capabilities that lead to more exciting lives and glorious civilizations".

    Question: Apparently those capabilities were locked in the past. How to set up a mental picture to understand the sentence more correctly or more vividly? What are those capabilities? My guess is things like the Internet, the genetic engineering, space exploration, etc, all kinds of things humans have been launching. In other words, those capabilities are their potentiality that is being unlocked. Does it make sense?

    Thanks.

    Re: Unlock capabilities

    "At the start of the 21st century, humankind finds itself on a non-sustainable course the course that, unless it is changed, could lead to grand scale catastrophes. At the same time, we are unlocking formidable new capabilities that lead to more exciting lives and glorious civilizations. This could be either humanities last century or the century that sets the world, on a course toward a spectacular future."
