What you think will happen in next 100 years and beyond? Will we finally know the real truth behind ancient mysteries like ufo's, crop circles, ancient places like stonehenge or pyramids in giza, and who we really are? The proof is there, but what is the purpose? Why there is so many questions and not too many answers? Does our ancestors are trying to tell us something? Whats your opinion?

Imagine if everyone knew everything about everything and anything!? It would be a pretty dull world... :mellow:

Living in the present here, trying to expand on 100 years from now? What about understanding 100 years ago first! We're these wars really for nothing except human stupidity or was there something much more going on..perhaps some form of indemnity.

Agreed. After all, the past is the future just with lights on...

"Those who don't understand the mistakes of the past are destined to repeat them."

Therefore to understand the future its important to understand the past.

We can speculate on the future if you like.

It is not hard to extrapolate our possible physical future very accurately  by looking at present day science.

However it is a little harder to predict the evolution of human sociology and society in response to inventions.

Eg suppose humans are made virtually immortal How will that affect the pstychology of individual humans, and the responses of humans in general The replacement of fossil fuel driven cars with electric ones based on renewable resources won't make a big change, but how about when transmat is perfected and no one needs a vehicle to move from place to place, or when energy fields replace solid construction for homes vehicles ships etc.

Those things will all happen in the next 100 years based on present day science.

How will we deal with biological (hormonal) enhancement of memory and intelligence, as well as interfacing with artificial intelligences far more quick than our own minds? How will my own field (education) change when learning can occur direct from a computer interface with the mind.
We are entering a revolution as significant as the industrial revolution, only faster and more far reaching. One only has to look at the transformations in people's lives, and in the structure of society during the industrial revolution, to see how radical these changes will be.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world..

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

I really dont think this is likely (although possible) How often in history have people been able to look back at an age and see that thngs have got worse? It is very rare.

A few examples eg post roman britain (for the romanised britons) and sometimes after the collapse of a civiization such as those of greece rome or egypt. Generally, even then, people turn away from the old/civilized ways for other reasons. Eg the saxons in post roman Britain actually feared the towns and buildings of the romans were "haunted" and they did not suit their natural lifestyles either. There were also the anasazi and perhaps the post incan periods, but generally, human history has been one of forward evolution.

We will probably be suffering from a lack of resources, henceforth a majority of us will be starving and in poverty, killing our opposition in order to gain and collect any opportunity of food possible, with the support of our 'clans' or groups and or however else being. Sounds legitimate...

natural resources isn't what it's cooked up to be is what I'm saying ... Mr Walker
everything we rely on today isn't going to come cheap, that's the trend ...
power grids are going to break down, 'clean' water resources are going to be scarce and 'urban' populations isn't going to slide along with it calmly

us rural Joes will just sit back and mumble 'i told you so' and talk about the good times ... when water was fresh, air was rejuvenating and the land was renewable still

You might be right but i live in a state with a different slant on things As a state we now generate almost 30 % of our power from wind. On some days almost 100% of that day's energy use is supplied by wind power. Also, about 15% of homes have solar panels which not only supply their energy needs but feed back into the grid.

Once energy is made sustainable so can  transport be, via electricity.Finally, even now, there is plenty of food and water for all humans on earth. While some mineral resources are finite we may not need these for much longer.For example  it wont be long before we can use energy fields for housing furnoture etc and create clothing etc using pure energy basic raw materials and templates on a home computer
But of course you are right, in that western society, with planned obsolence, materialism  growth driven economies, and excesive wasteful consumptiom is not a good thing. It also creates huge disparrties in life style between some people and others on the earth, leading to tensions and conflicts..

Ps i am old enough to remember when the only heating in a house was a wood fire and I had to spend an hour  every day or two cutting up wood and collecting wood chips for kindling. When hot water came from a metal "fountain" on the top of a wood fire and to get a shower one had to fire up a chip and paper fired water heater. The toilets were long drops or at best a septic tank based unit some distance from the house.  (usually about 20 yards) So living now. I think I am living in a far better society in material terms if not in providing for human emotional and spiritual needs

While it is true that petrol only cost 20 cents per gallon then, and today costs between 9 and ten dollars a gallon, my  total pay then was 20 dollars a week. Today it is about $1700 per week, of which I spend no more than $100 per week on petrol.

I take it that this is within the context of this section of the forum, so we might learn that there is a greater link between mind and matter than we initially thought as people learn to affect their bodies, environments, pets, etc. with newly found psychic powers, which are just new ways of using our brains rather than something in the realm of the paranormal. We'll discover sentient life forms in another galaxy, and they'll annihilate various paradigms that humankind constructed through the years. Many new species of fauna will be found in the most remote places of the world, many of which will be found during our exploration of the ocean in order to address concerns with our environment, and we'll find proof of an ape-like creature (perhaps fossils) during this time of discovery. We'll be able to see "ghosts" after we learn how to capture scenes from the past, residual electromagnetic "imprints" on the environment caused by events that took place when the people who experienced them were in heightened emotional states (fear, hate, hope love).

There is one reality with billions of versions.
