Technology, an adaptation of the human mind. For centuries, mankind has thrived on the creation and development of new mechanical wonders. From the first spear to hand held rifles, and the glider to jet powered aircraft. Man has always sought to reach for the skies and even beyond, to quench our ever expanding thirst for knowledge. Will we ever satisfy our desire? Only time will tell, but for now our only limit is our imagination.

Magic, a cosmic wonder that lives in all the beings of Equestria. This everlasting energy stream flows through every organic life-form, and some are even given the extraordinary gift to control it. From this branches near endless uses  for magic ranging from spells and enchantments, to offensive and defensive attacks. Magic is a mystery that no pony truly understands, and that only adds onto the possibilities yet to be discovered.

However, which one of these evolutionary tools is superior? The mechanical marvels of the human mind, or the cosmic wonder that is the magic of Equestria. That my friends, is up for you to decide. In this group we search for your interpretations of  the outcome for this epic clash of titans. Who will win? Who will fall? We shall see. Let the battle begin.

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

-Arthur C. Clarke

Would a light Star Wars/MLP crossover be permissible to put in this group? One of the central conflicts would be between pro tech Equestrians vs those who believe in the return of magic

Hahahaha

Even if ponies had the technological capabilities of mankind, who's to say they'd be as good as us? Magic in theory, is key to their existance. Mix magic and some basic technology, and they'll stray off and become based around magic all over again. In my opinion, I believe magic held ponies back. Their magic ceases technological innovation. They don't need technology, so they don't realize what's holding them back because they have a limit to what they want. They don't want because they don't need, but if they need, they use magic as a solution. Magic is a short term solution, for a long term situation, atleast in my opinion it is.

Humans don't have magic, but magic is a thing of dreams and fantasy. But... Why do we want magic, if we have innovation, and our bodies? Our bodies are better than the ponies in many ways. I will not list what I learned from a video -- because I'm going to put it here:

So... Why do people believe that ponies are better? Because they learn without any real issues as results?

Who needs magic, when you have technology that advances over time, making all humans capable of things only certain ponies could do?

I have a story about a MIG pilot and her copilot stuck in Equestria. Do I put it under the Human Tech vs. Magic folder? I'm assuming so. :rainbowhuh: It's actually human tech but from the Equestria Girls world.

Magic is a stable force, it can not get better or worse. Yet while technology is currently far below the powers of magic, it has the potential to rise far above, as it has no bounds.

>>397027 I already have a story about a person who can do that stuff.

#97 · 92w, 3d ago · · ·

>>396640  Yes, and that is a very specific description :rainbowderp:

#96 · 93w, 3d ago · · ·

Would a story about a person who has the ability to create amazing inventions with few items (such as being able to make a fully functioning iron man style suit just by taking over a diamond dog mine, and uses some gems and ores), with enemies that try to destroy ponies with technology and energy be allowed? My character is a cyborg, who prefers science and the energy his body is made of over magic. He even builds giant robot suits just for each of the mane six, so they can fight evil threats.

>>395392 Made it up. I know, I'm awesome :rainbowdetermined2:

#94 · 96w, 3d ago · · ·

Love the description.  Did you make that up or find it somewhere?

#93 · 105w, 1d ago · · ·

>>389240  That is actually my headcanon for whwnever 'advanced' tech pops up on the show. Like video games, or flashlights, etc.

#92 · 105w, 3d ago · 1 · 10 ·

Very intriguing question. Magic should win.

#91 · 105w, 4d ago · 1 · ·

What about technology powered by magic?

I mean, thematically speaking, the ponies seem to treat magic as a field of science.

>>379397

I've heard various variations, but pretty much all of them referred to magic.

#90 · 107w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

Personally, I think technology would win, because even though the same effect can be achieved with magic, I doubt any pony or alicorn could stop a nuclear blast, and then the after-affects

#88 · 108w, 3d ago · 4 · ·

Tech or Magic...

...Why not both?

Hello, I am the maker of the Freedom vs Harmony  group. I have just created a discussion in the Humans are Superior Forum called Humans vs Ponies Comparision and Analysis where I and hopefully some of you will discuss and analyze Equestria, Ponies, Magic, and various Scenarios and factors such as First Contact or ponies under or using Slavery. I hope you will join me in this dicussion.
