How do u imagine future?

i'm talking about 20 years and beyond (when mp3 software do not exist )

i imagine people in hundreds of years in future as open and very smart people that have unlocked paranormal senses as telepathy, telekinesys(i dunno how to say that in english) and teleport !!!
well, i think the human race will be capable of that thanks to biochips implanted in people's brains designed to unlock us.

but with that fantasy i have, i have fear of what defective or maybe virus infected (hopefully outlook won't exist, either ms)would do, they would destroy people causing them totally extreme pain because all their senses would be altered, they would burn from the soul

i rather think that people will live happily in a non superficial society, a real global society, where everybody is linked from the soul, where we all live nude, where we need no money.

after some time using the biochips, we would realise that we don't really need them, that we only need ourselves...

ahh.!

i don't suck, right?

I imagine we will eventually have to DE-volve in order to survive. Emotions really have NO use in the survival of a species that I can see. Eventually those who are so troubled by them will simply destroy themselves, leaving only the uncaring and numb continuing to exist. It's a part of evolution - they're simply more fit to survive & reprocude.

good point, red.

but my point is that people would realise that originality is the real evolution, that with technology and using clothes and using only our feet to move is the real de-evolution. we would really know how to manage our feelings, without hate. we would only be only a step from perfection, when we become everything and nothing, past and future, infinite.

i don't suck, right?

I read in interesting Arthur C Clark book awhile back (cant remember title) imagining a world where someone develops a miniature controllable wormhole- microscopic in size. It was Just large enough to send a camera lense through- so basical you could spy on anyone, anywhere, even in the past. Eventually most people on earth own the device, and it alters society to such an extent that everyone stops wearing clothes and people have sex regularly in public areas anywhere they want. The reasoning of course being that since you can be spied on and are probably ARE being spied on by SOMEbody it doesn't matter what you do- there being no line between public and private.

The destruction of privacy; that is a terrifying thought. Good book though

Now is the time for all good Americans to come to the aid of their Country

I see several, namely, the ability to maintain an interest in not only the survival of ourselves, but that of society as a whole. I'm thoroughly convinced that this ability has allowed us to surpass all other creatures, and has placed us at the top of the chain of being. All other animals are completely selfish... all their actions aim for one thing. The preservation of their own selves, whether it be survival against attack, or protection of offspring. Humans, on the otherhand, because of emotional thought, have the capability to accomplish altruistic goals.

As for the future, I can't predict that. There are just too many factors involved. And seeing as how human progress is accelerating (developing nations have accomplished in 30 years what it took the industrialized West about 100), any predictions will be entirely inaccurate.

I believe

I believe we will all be destroyed by a factor called "MAD" (Mutually Assured Destruction) Its where if you send a bomb at us we send one back. The basic principal is normally applied to Nuclear Missles. Say Russia was to send a nuke at us we'd send on back. (That was an example). Well I believe that eventually we will get into a WW3 and someone will send a nuclear bomb at someone who has nuclear capibility and they send one at them causing two 42 foot deep craters miles wide and a possible Nuclear Winter. (Nuclear Winter = Dust from the explosion goes into the sky and stops sunlight from reaching us and freezing everything). This nuclear winter could posibly destroy us. The nuclear winter is only a theory though, nothing has been proved that it would happen. But chances are we'll kill ourselves and send off several lucky survivors like in "The Green Book" and K.A. Applegates series (i forget the name but its still coming out). Both books are kids books but have meanings. Oh well, I hope that doesnt happen.

we are all going to die!

We (ie the human-race) are all gona die eventualy because lets face it as soon as the sun runs out of hidrogen to burn (fuse by nuclear fusion) it will swhich to heleum (wich is not spelt correctly (it's not that I carnt be bothered I actualy am Dislexic (is that how it's spelt?))) wich will cause it to swell into a red GIANT wich will gradualy engulf Mercury, Venus, Earth & Mars. so were doomed anyway.

OH by the way a couple in the US have allready had there chips put in ready for upgrades in the future, scary thought, what if Microsoft joined this band-wagon we would all end up using Windows on our brains I hope they iron the bug's out first

i think robots will exist, and robots will control the robots, and the lord of the rings will be real, except the ring will be a high capacity disc (cd=ring) that must be destroyed because it contains something that could take over the world: the newest version of Windows!

A little extreme, but honestly, I think our society as a whole will eventually reach the point where personal interests are completely ignored in favor of business. Our society will slowly leech rights away from everyone, and give them to the government, and to businesses.

Eventually, I believe that this will happen. It will go way too far, impede too many rights. Then, I believe we will see the type of revolution unwitnessed since the days of violent monarchy overthrows. I don't know if this revolution will come as a result of a horrible war, or if society will fall into full anarchy before rebuilding, but I believe everything will somehow fall apart eventually.

The society of the future consists merely of brains.

One by one, all lined up in a NOC-like server room, all networked to each other. Instead of talking to communicate ideas, they will be transmitted easily. Brain Centers would also be hooked to each other, creating a type of 'Internet.'

You will have no body.

Your life will be lived through your brain (think about it, when you dream you are not using your body...)

Your brain will be hooked up to a machine (remember the server room?) that keeps it 'alive.'

And then, someone will emulate the brain perfectly. Suddenly, brains aren't needed anymore...

What? Don't beleive me? How much of your body are you using right now? 30%? And thats just for typing and keeping your brain alive.

I think some of those components are going to be out of date in 20 years. 72ghz is going to be old if we continue speed increases at the current rate.

I think you are being optimistic about WA3. They'll only be on beta 5 by then.

i think of the future as being a place where computers are no more. computers are just built into your brain at birth, and then you're given cordless access to the internet through your mind. then you can logon and it charges money

then again, things will be way more expensive then. i bet that in the future all that it will be is a bunch of people with credit cards. and you will just run up a huge debt and end up paying it off for the rest of your life.

sad? i think so
