    Default Predictions thread.

    Lets make some predictions regarding the future +10 years from now.

    It'll be a little time capsule to go back and look into. How right will we be?

    Go!




    20 years from now hand held phones will be a thing of the past.

    - Someone will hack nuclear launch codes and they will fall into the hands of Google via Google Street View.

    - America will face collapse and/or hyperinflation of its currency. The population would be generally much poorer and the people will stop caring as much (if at all) about America as a nation and care more about their own states. This echoed throughout much of the Western world.

    - Due to aging populations and the massive contamination of Tokyo's aquifer by years of escaping Fukushima radiation more and more Japanese are emigrating.

    - China suffers a now unmanageable demographic crisis where the ratio of men to women deprives the former of the good stuff. Men of various ages keep a keen eye out for foreign immigrants including the aforementioned Japanese.

    - The ISS has now 3D printed its first space ship as well as the first Moon Base.

    - The Mars One mission is initially a success but the Martian site suffers difficulties after a few months and the team meet an untimely death.

    - Every country is now a net importer of crude oil and the energy future looks bleak. Ever increasing amounts of fracking is taking place and increased efficiency (and high prices) are (for now) driving up supply.

    - Egypt has now experienced its fourth revolution since 2011. High food prices and low water supply have convinced the population that the country is now a failed state.

    - Syrian Kurdistan has now experienced its best economic performance since it declared independence several years earlier. Rumour has it that they are planning to ally with and assist Syria in invading the Al-Nusra controlled countryside.

    - India, Iran, Russia, China, Brazil, Nigeria and Europe go to the Moon or are in the final planning stages.

    In 10 years, humanity will have perfected a fundamental "Theory of Everything".

    In 20 years, we will know the overall architectures of our universe and be able to map it all out.

    In 30 years, people will be able to access supernatural powers like flying through the use of technology.

    In 40 years, there will be a means for penetrating the barriers of distance via teleportation.

    In 50 years, negative matter and dark energy will be harnessed to alter the fabrics of space-time.

    In 60 years, advances in cosmology and enlightenment alike will give us the wisdom to preserve world peace.

    In 70 years, mankind wil begin its incredible expansion to alien galaxies all across the universe.

    In 80 years, new dimensions will become accessible through inducing higher states of awareness.

    In 90 years, channels for contact with hyper-dimensional alien divinities will be established.

    In 100 years, we build bridges to transcend the heavens and forge new creations of our own design.

    In 1000 years, highly evolved humans as a galactic super-civilization will open up the "rainbow bridge to infinity".

    Ten years from now, I'll look exactly the same. No older.
    Ten years from now, there'll be a nootropic that adds 10-20 points to your IQ.
    Ten years from now, America will be number one again. But not in education.
    Ten years from now, I'll be rich and accomplished.
    Ten years from now, we'll still have hand held phones.
    Ten years from now, Facebook will be a shadow of its former self.
    Ten years from now, Google will be on the verge of collapse due to its own internal BS.
    Ten years from now, at least one major invention will surface that will change humanity (for the better).

    we will be downloading information into our brain rather than attend university- i say 10 years.

    as well as other skills...like art, music and kung fu

    we may even be able to simulate telepathic communication by synching with someone elses internal chip. or rather sending mental texts.

    Plenty of nice predictions here. Shame there's little to no chance of implementing many of them within the required time-scale.

    Please don't tell me this whole idea of "micro-chipping the masses" will EVER happen! Because then the Bible might actually be right about something (Mark of the Beast) and be an omen of bad things that are to come.

    We don't want to become robots; we want to become a supernatural uber-race with an ultimate willpower and a life force.

    Something about that idea of becoming more machine than man just doesn't feel right.

    I mean, I'm in many respects very much a constructive rationalist, but I'm also an idealistic humanitarian. It would suck really badly if robotics became the foundation of our society and destroyed spirituality. Even when looked at logically, the robots/machines/AI could take over the world!

    Surely it's more within reason to follow a higher divine path. That's where the true promise for the future I believe lies, is in faith. If we had enough faith, then we could eventually realize our full potential. One day man will move mountains; there's nothing that we can't do - we just have to believe!
