Sent into Another World

I was thinking today whether 20,000 years is a short time or a long time to go from stone tools to the ability to travel to another planet......? 
The subject of my current film project: (Valentina Tereshkova) doesn't deal with the answer; just the question. The question of a human's relationship with its machines and the impact of technology on the human spirit. Cosmonauts traveled in the machines of their time. As technology replaces nature as our source of life, I think about 20,000 years ago.  Now we have trained atoms to run our planet. The brain hasn't changed much in 100,000 years. But life is different now.  Where are we; and how will this transition to technology change us?   I want this film to explore those ideas.
