So called Western Industrial Revolution happened only 200 years ago as compared to millions of years of human existence on earth. The period of 200 years is extremely short in front of duration of human existence on earth. Moreover the digital technology came into being only since 50 years. Everything, be it our way of life, thinking, impact on nature and environment, etc. has happened at an extremely rapid abnormal pace in just these few years as compared to millions of years of human existence. Do the scriptures say anything about such rapid abnormal changes?

Edit: This question is not a duplicate of In any scripture, are there any records of climate change? Example with Solutions? since that question mentions only about Climate changes, whereas the changes that I'm referring to are all sorts of changes like technological changes, psychological changes, etc.

    Sri Yukteswar Giri talked about these changes in his book 'The Holy Science' written in 1894. He says we are living in ascending Dwapara Yuga and not Kali Yuga which most people believe. He said these changes started happening after 1699 which is true. See my answer here – Chinmay Sarupria Jun 15 '16 at 8:06

    @ChinmaySarupria if this is ascending Dwapara Yuga, why is adharma spreading more and more? Why people are becoming more materialistic then as time is passing by? – user5155835 Jun 15 '16 at 13:12

    @ChinmaySarupria I don't think spirituality is increasing among people. From what I'm seeing as time is passing by, spirituality among people is decreasing. Also, if materialism is increasing, that means spirituality is decreasing. – user5155835 Jun 27 '16 at 14:06

    @SwiftPushkar that article kind of opposes the traditional Hindu standpoint on the length of yugas, which are (in my opinion) typical signs of western ignorance. – Gabe Hiemstra Jan 18 '17 at 14:48
