If you are reading this, perhaps you've stumbled upon this webpage because it went viral last week. In that case, the year should be 2020. Especially if you are a teen, you might find some interesting info in this thread, from "old-schoolers" like me...

Or, perhaps you are an ATS member in 2010, or any year in between, and you wish to add a message for future eyes and minds.

Regardless, welcome to this historic thread.

In this thread, members can post messages to warn, advice or educate future readers. Come 2020, I will try to remember to bump this thread, so you guys from 2020 get all the messages that have been preserved for you, and you can comment on the outcome.

Ok, here we go, here is my message for you 2020'ers...!!!

Hello reader!

(hopefully, I am one of you... )

I'm talking to you from the past, but with the full knowledge of talking to someone from a different era, so it's kinda like time traveling - just in reverse...


Welcome to ATS.

Anyway, the reason for speaking to you through this message, is because I am worried that with every generation, the ideals of freedom, joy, love and happiness are being purposely eroded by the few whom we call TPTB here in 2010.

To them, apparently, nothing is sacred, except profit and power.

Short sightedness is a symptom of a profit based capitalist system, not of a sustainable system with everyone's interests in mind, and we have lost some precious things as a result already; extinct animal species to give an example.

But, something else is happening here in 2010 that's quite fascinating.

Right now (2010), we live in tumultuous times: many people believe there is an Apocalypse on the horizon; and surely you must have heard about the 2012 date... (if you are reading this in 2020)

As of this point (2010), all I can honestly say is that I'm not 100% sure of what is going to happen. There are too many variables, including the possibility of hardcore religious people in power trying to get the Armageddon show on the road in order to get the Rapture under way. On the other hand, there may also be a chance of a fake holographic projection in the sky, or what has been dubbed "Project Bleubeam", in an attempt to fake a world changing event, to further the agenda of centralizing power and wealth. Or perhaps there's truth to some sort of Galactic Cycle, and we will get blasted with cosmic rays mutating our DNA, or our brethren from space will finally come back and liberate humanity... who knows?

YOU DO!!! ...if you're reading this in 2020!!!

Anyway, to keep it short for now, I'd like to let you know that a lot of things that might be totally normal and acceptable to you, may be very unnatural, even unacceptable from our perspective. Do you have an RFID chip embedded in your body? Did you ever read 1984 or Brave New World? Is there a global currency, global government? Is there a tax on breathing? etc. etc.

Sometimes things change really fast, through False Flag attacks, wars, assassinations, or other proven methods, but in general people grow up and adjust to their environment, thinking it is normal.

Perhaps here, we the people from 2010, can shed an interesting perspective on some of the stuff you folks from 2020 have accustomed to - and accepted as natural?

I hope I will be here still, when you read this in 2020, so that I can look back and learn a few things or two myself as well...

Ok, have fun, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Ummmmm....... Yeah. How did this thread "go viral" with no replies??? This site is filled with nothing but attention seekers, and you Sir, are doing exactly that. Congratz.

This site is also filled with people who don't read what they reply to and jump on any occasion to belittle a fellow member.

I said, have fun, didn't I?

Obviously the OP means it will be viral in 2020

"If you are reading this, perhaps you've stumbled upon this webpage because it went viral last week. In that case, the year should be 2020"

Haven't you ever heard of a time capsule. Well, this is it, for ATS members. I hope trolling goes out of style by 2020...

Good thread! Let's have some real contributions now...

Interesting. I don't know just how drastic things will change in 10 years time. All I know is that humanity is going downhill. Like you said, in our time 2010, it's more about money and power and not people. Sad, but true. I can only hope that mankind evolves with compassion and love instead of selfishness and greed.

In 2010 we were all on the edges of our seats, waiting for doomsday in 2012. We watched the last few episodes of "Lost" with baited breath and learned that switching to Gieco really could save you 15% or more on car insurance. The country was poised on the brink of civil war due to the Health Care Reform bill.

"We watched the tragedy unfold
We did as we were told
We bought and sold
It was the greatest show on earth
But then it was over
We ohhed and aahed
We drove our racing cars
We ate our last few jars of caviar
And somewhere out there in the stars
A keen-eyed look-out
Spied a flickering light
Our last hurrah
And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death"
- Roger Waters

In 1990 I was listening to cassette tapes.

In 2000 I was listening to CDs.

In 2010 I have my Ipod listening to MP3s.

In 2020...I imagine we have our music directly implanted into our brain

But to be serious...I have a question for anyone reading in 2020...looking crazy does Sarah Palin seem to you?

Um, yeah. Hi.

In 2010 one gallon of gasoline costs $2.99 where I live on the West coast of the republic known as USA. We use the US dollar as our currency. We use standard form of measurements as opposed to the metric system used everywhere else on the planet.

We've heard rumors of "Free Energy" beyond solar panels, and wind turbines, but it is being "closed-patented." Corporations bought the rights to with-hold from the masses.

We were created equal, but treated inferior by our so-called "elite" leaders. They followed a sinister agenda, rather than did what they promised during their campaigning for whatever office they ran for.

Are you also being lead to believe you are free, and yet, are not? Do you know the difference?

Nikola Tesla is the greatest inventor of all time. Look him up.

Happy posting!

Dear future Canadian readers; I suspect after the American Purchase of 2017 the Yankees are still quite bitter over the whole ordeal. Not to mention the change to "Les Etats-Unis du Canada" in "future hindsight" was really a kick in the balls, you know how they feel about the French, let alone learning new words.

Don't treat them too badly, they're a fragile people and need reassurance. Compliment their guns, and remind them of the things they used to build, they like that.

Thank our friends the Chinese for the sweet deal they threw our way.

Take care, eh?

Hello?... Is this thing on??

So it's the year 2020.
Well then, that would mean that all of our stresses, panic attacks, (and an awesome movie) about 2012 were all, um... wrong. (Just like a few thousand other predictions).

Here in 2010, people have been stuffing tons of stored food wherever they can find the room (picture a hamster with cheeks ready to explode)... They are buying massive amounts of guns and ammo like there's no tomorrow (literally) ... and digging themselves bug-out hideaways so fast, it could put a pack of dogs going after a buried bone to shame.

With that said, my advice is... Don't forget to enjoy life!

That reminds me.... I've got a number of cans with freeze-dried food that's gonna last longer than me. Want some?

Hey there everyone. You guys still have hair? I heard that maybe the cosmic rays would mutate us mere humans into the greys.

Anti gravity yet?
How bout free energy?
Is the Earth burning up or is Gore locked away for perpetrating the biggest hoax ever?
Did Iran have a nuke or was it all lies by TPTB.
Oh, is Obama the anti Christ of lore?
Have the idiots that back the Dem/Repub been finally lobotomized? We are really hoping they were, they being the main problems with the US.

Has the true political system been finally introduced, Libertarianism I mean.

One has absolute rights of Life, Liberty and Property. You can do anything except hurt another or infringe upon another's Absolute rights. This being the only Law for governance.

One more thing, I predict that the AGW component of my questions will be determined to be a natural cycle and the whole thing was created in the Enron Board rooms. Have they finally put them all in prison in perpetuity?

Well, I am not from the future, I am from 2010 like you all.
But I had had many dreams about the future and many go well beyond 2020.
Because I had already dreamt of things that became true, I take my dreams somewhat seriously.

Apparently, my dreams show a future much different. I was in my home city but there were nearly no cars and shops were all close (in what seem long ago). There were people in the street but less, and there was something I felt different with the sky (more pale) and the climate (colder). There seems that something big seems to happen between 2010 and 2014. I had many of these dreams in the past. And I know that the future I see is only a probable one, so I am not sure. In those dreams I saw like of a very unstable situation in the news, around the world, socially, military (I saw missiles flying) and economically and a food crises (and these dreams were well before 2008). Then, there are some strange phenomena in the sky, extreme weather and by 2014 I am living temporarly in a cave, the weather is much colder.

In dreams forward into the future (dreams in ~2060), there are some high-tech cities (with magnetic cars), but I live in communes in the countryside; there is a sense of freedom. I was living very happy. Further, the dreams are even more crazy (physical bodies are less physical, people have telepathy, there is AI and the world is much different). UFOs are also a recurrent theme, in some I had battles with them, in others I was alied. This could be a symbol and not something literal. I am not afraid, the dreams seem to indicate positiveness and a fearless future for me, and I know that the future is unknown, the dreams only show possible scenarios. I don't know how to exlain I do I feel the precise sense of time, in these dreams. I have them since I was a kid.

Don't take this too serious!
Like someone said, don't forget to have fun!

To the readers of the future: THE END IS NIGH!

Not for me, the end is still 10 years away, but for you, THE END IS NIGH!!

Quickly now, put down your augmented reality contact lenses, and HEAD FOR THE HILLS!!!

Oh, and sell your gold for cryin' out loud. You've been holding on to it for too long.

OK, first for the OP.. thanks for starting this thread.. I think it's a very interesting idea. I, like you, hope to be around in '20 to read this.


It's strange to think that I may be writing a letter to an entire group that I may not be around to get to know. If you don't understand why I make such a statement at the age of 26, then obviously that means things are better, and maybe.. just maybe, I'm enjoying looking back on this thread with you.

I'm an American, so for whatever might happen due to our government in the future.. let me just say that I'm sorry. Please don't blame the people, the majority of us aren't as ignorant as some of us that you have seen on youtube. We certainly aren't what our leaders are. I care about all of you.. no matter your religion, or lack of.. no matter who you love and want to marry.. no matter what color your skin is or isn't.

The world seems to be in constant chaos, and a lot of us here are just waiting for things to implode. I can only speak for myself when I say that I'm sorry for any part I have played, or even worse, what I haven't done today to make the world a better place. No matter how many good things we do in a day, I believe there is always enough time for at least one more. I'm sorry if that one good thing that I left out of my day has made your life, in any way, shape or form.. any more dificult than I think it probably is.

Give someone a hug. Hold the door for someone. Smile..

I only wish that people back in 2000 would have written us this letter, and more than that.. I wish we would have listened.

Keep your freedoms close and defend them for the people of 2030.

Peace and love,

Awesome thread idea!

well I will be 28 in 2020 so if i haven't done anything amazing by then
(wth is wrong with you! future self!)

btw I want to tell my gf I love her and my friends to never give up even if it is the apocalypse. lol

I hope everyone in 2020 gets the best for them, all i can offer is hope in my self and the world for the future.

I wish everyone good luck! What ever you want to see happen in the future, work for it now. p.s. Please bring on some awesome nanotechnology and brain computer interfaces. =) and maybe some hover boards, or antigravity tech.

Welcome to 2010 dear viewers. Things are rough right now but I imagine they will get better. If America is a wasteland at this time then we the people failed our constitutional duties. For this I apologize. If you are having problems in the monotony of the world you are in then please find a copy of the U.S. Constitution and read it. Then let your friends read it. It is a great set of guidelines for your government to go by. We apologize if global warming did turn out to be manmade. We as a world are so divided right now on the subject that we don't know who is lying or telling the truth. I am sure the NWO is monitoring you right now but hopefully your hopes come to fruition. Again sorry about the mess we made. Good luck to you guys that are cleaning it up.

So it's the year 2020.
Well then, that would mean that all of our stresses, panic attacks,

2020 will be even more paranoid with constant warning of immediate death, and the Jews and Muslims will probably have exterminated each other with nuclear weapons.

Wait, how did we go from "cause for a celebration" to "even more paranoid with constant warning of immediate death...?"

But yea true, any number of difficult things and 'paranoia' could happen in 2020, as it could in any year..... All the more reason to try and enjoy life every chance we get!

Come to think of it.... Was there ever a year where the world was at complete peace and without some kind of paranoia? No famine, plagues, wars, depressions...
Wow, as a species, we humans don't have the best track record helping each other survive, do we?
