What's your crazy thought about the future?

Asked by erichw1504 (26398points) March 9th, 2011

Inspired by seazen’s question.

Create your own weird perception about the future. It can be how we will interact, what we will see, what something will look like or do, the type of clothing we will wear, odd inventions, anything…

Be as specific or broad as you would like, but it must be weird!

Everything on this Earth is so cyclical…from revolution to prosperity to taking advantage of people and the environment…and every generation has people who recognize this and people who don’t…I often wonder why we even the ability to see what’s truly happening and so sometimes I pretend (and there are new-age-y religions out there who say the same) that we are here to witness the good and the bad and to remember so that when we’re moved up to a higher frequence/consciousness, we will not go through it all again.

In 5,000 years, man will still exist on Earth, just as today. They will be predicting their doom to be just around the corner, just as today.

@12Oaks Haha, good one.

Instead of cars, we will be launched out of cannons to wherever we need to go. We will land with our parachutes deployed and into a pile of giant foam pieces.

Just hoping we have one.

Instead of us searching with Google, Google will search us. Causing an outcry greater than the use of full-body scanners.

I could answer with a few serious thoughts but here is my take on the weird kind…

teleportation, levitation, telepathy,
And for relaxation- giant cloud size beanbags equipped with fave tunes on mega speakers, munchy tray and drinks dispenser floating gently through the skies in endless time….

And for work- making munchies and beanbags! :p

@crazydreams “giant cloud size beanbags equipped with fave tunes on mega speakers, munchy tray and drinks dispenser floating gently through the skies in endless timeā€¦

Isn’t that everyone’s life dream? ;)

Within 20 years the Earth will be cleansed with fire and it will become smooth like glass and you will be able to view it like we do a crystal ball. You will see the past present and future all at once. Time will not exist and with a thought you will be where you want to be. We will visit other beings on other planets and hide in the clouds and watch them progress and we get to scare them once in a while. LOL We will genetically help create other beings to live on unpopulated worlds and then let them go and watch them. We will fly within our own atmostphere and enjoy practicing that often.When you read or learn it will be with every single cell in your body because the cells will all be aware.

Life is fun and enjoyable so lets just enjoy what we can now. GRIN

@Summum That is amazingly weird, yet possibly accurate!

reijinni's avatar

I see in a hundred years of so, no need for religion or wars and everybody can find clean water.

MilkyWay's avatar

WOW, @reijinni that’s a really nice and noble thought…
my weird view for the future :
It would be possible for humans and animals to procreate…
thus we will have werewolves,anubises and centaurs (amongst others) running around all over the place, just like in the movies ; )
and don’t tell me, my vision is weird,, i know…

crazydreams's avatar

@erichw1504 probably yes, and probably the most weird as it’s less likely to happen in my opinion. everything else is probable.

People will soon have entire relationships by texting including marriage in which they will never meet in person.

flutherother's avatar

We still have billions of years ahead of us, we should slow down.

6rant6's avatar

@flutherother I don’t. Just saying.

@marinelife You know about Second Life?

My thought – more computers do jobs, fewer people needed to do jobs. What will carbon-based life forms do?

Perform! as audiences, people are irreplaceable. Get started now. Go see a performance.

When the planet decides to do another white wash with extra snow. (or a vast waste)

The internet is going to become uncool. It will obviously still be around, but a large segment of the population is going to get sick of staring at screens all day. It will be the new counter-culture to be anti-internet. I think this will start happening in 5–15 years.

cak's avatar

@marinelife Funny. My answer has to do about texting! Man will lose all ability to talk because of texting.

marinelife's avatar

@cak Great minds think alike!

Axemusica's avatar

So nobody thinks the earth is going to go through another cycle? Even though climates are changing and polar caps are changing, solar flares are more active. No one thinks it’s going to effect anything?

Summum's avatar

The Earth is going to change completely and it will begin its new evolved existance.

flutherother's avatar

That none of us will be in it. How will they manage?

Summum's avatar

@flutherother Many will be taken off the planet until the change is finished then we will return to rebuild.

erichw1504's avatar

@Summum OK, you write the script and we’ll sell it to Hollywood!

Summum's avatar

The script has been written and now it is being played out.

MilkyWay's avatar

What’s my role!!?? : ) ?

Summum's avatar

You are the queenie…

MilkyWay's avatar

@Summum lol… thanks….
so, how much is hollywood giving us as a budget? ; D

Summum's avatar

No unfortunately those that are not ready will stay on the Earth while it is cleansed.

flutherother's avatar

While it is….... (gulp) cleansed?

Summum's avatar

Yeppers cleansed.

erichw1504's avatar

Should I be scared? Cause I’m peeing my pants right now.

Summum's avatar

No what will happen will. Life is as it should be and all is where it is supposed to be. We make our lifes what they are and are the creators of it. You know you are not afraid and you are pulling my leg but that is okay. I also know that most do not believe what I say anyway. But I am committed to spreading knowledge where ever I can and I learn and want to hear from others as well. We all share in what is called life and we are all related that way.

Requiring frequent updates for our brain chip firewalls when communicating “telepathically” with other people. Nobody likes to get his or her brain hacked.

Suppose you’re flirting telepathically. Then your brain encounters are mental popup window saying: “Keyboard not present, press any key”.

Axemusica's avatar

New book plot @mattbrowne? Sounds quite interesting. :)

mattbrowne's avatar

Yes, wish I had the time…
