30 years from now, in 2040:
*Technology will be quite a bit better than now, but it won't really seem sci-fi. I'd say the change from 2010-2040 will be comparable to 1990-2010,
very large, but not really that amazing.
*The Middle East issues will have been resolved for quite some time. People will come to realize the War on Terror was generally a sham, and in
apology the West will rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan. Jerusalem will become something of a free zone, and the West Bank will become the State of
Palestine, and they will live in harmony and friendship with their Jewish neighbors.
*Pop culture in its centralized form will be dead, with the exception of movies, and music, fashion, etc will be identifiable more by location than by
time period. Aside from the movie theatre, the Internet will be where all pop culture is distributed.
*Organized religion will fall apart, and people will worship, or not worship if they are atheist/agnostic, privately. The existence in an
afterlife/other side will be more deeply believed in however.
*UFOs will never be totally disclosed, but most people will accept that they are here.
*The world's population will reach its peak around 2040 to 9 billion, and from that point on, start to slowly decline to about 5 billion. 70% of
these people will live in and around cities.
