It seems like most of you think the 'best guess' is something negative, e.g a dystopia, post-apocalypse, advanced global fascist state, alien
enslavement, etc. And I really hope the people posing Idiocracy as a best guess are joking.
Could we have predicted the invention & proliferation of the internet, which is a huge step towards 'the future'? These movies are mostly extensions
of the human imagination; giving so much credence to the negative aspects in sci-fi is a human tendency. A tendency that defines consciousness --- to
scan the environment for danger.... Which incidentally goes hand in hand with sci-fi depicting a scenario that's astoundingly horrific.
As for which movie best guesses our future, I can't say off the top of my head... probably something involving a globally networked metaverse (VR)
combined with an expansion of corporeal universe exploration. Possibly The Matrix --- minus cold, diabolic machine-lords that trap all humans inside a
digital prison. Sword Art Online minus the possibility for people to be neurally destroyed in conjunction with game-death. The colonization of
'inner-space' as well as outer. I'm thinking something approached in a way that takes all the worst potentials into account & circumvents them.
Something spiritually symbiotic as well as inconceivable by current thought process.
Then again maybe I'm being too optimistic....
