I see where you are coming from but i just do not agree.
The world will not end in this day and age.
You're right, but it didn't begin in this era either. Technology already is life as we know it. Cars, artificial lighting, running water, air
conditioning, ovens, refrigerators, even that corded phone you were talking about. People will always appreciate what they haven't always had. The
future is not a place where everyone is just going to be born with everything, there will still be struggle to attain luxuries and because of that
appreciation for them.
Everything future generations learn is based on this point in history.
I would sure hope not! Surely they will innovate new technologies of their own. Yah they will expound and build upon a lot of the research and
findings of our day, but if you look at history, there is always unforeseen leaps and innovations made by extraordinary minds.
Once the Generation X is gone, so is the planet.
Hmmm, I'm not sure i agree with that.... The baby boomers and Gen X are the ones running things right now and it doesn't appear to going so
swimmingly. I'm kind of ready to see what Gen Y's going to do with things. I sense the opposite, I see a merging and harmony of science and
nature. I see a new wave of technology coming that benefits us without numbing us of our surroundings.
Everything from here on will dumb down the masses to levels beyond understanding. If you look at today's youth vs 20 years ago.
Ahh too late, lol, but i completely agree, except i would say youth post WWII vs pre WWII instead. (Especially being apart of Gen Y, it looks much
worse from the inside) BUT as long as there is people like you and I who question things and think outside the norm there will be hope. The masses
aren't everyone ya know.
decades from now, if something devastating were to happen, no one will be the least bit prepared.
Bahaha, for realz? If something were to happen tomorrow no one would be the least bit prepared. =P
Good to see people thinking about the future though.
Take it easy my friend
