ladies and gentlemen,
this thread is about the future, a future of our humanity, our very planet and lives of all other living things in it.
one can not be certain of ahead, but that doesn't mean one shouldn't think ahead before moving onward.
note : It's not comprehensive explanation about future but only a glimpse on it .
there are some things that menaces the world :
" Man is harder than rock and more fragile than an egg." ~Yugoslav Proverb
they said, humans are success of nature, but why it built its own enemy, perhaps it's bit forward to say such thing, but if we take great look at earth exactly, we'll see that most of planet problems comes from us.
but what's makes humans to do more damage than good, I'll tell you; it's the ignorance.
most people don't know it or won't admit it; of course it isn't utterly ignorance, it's relative so as they are things someones knows but others don't but doesn't make them ignorant for just lacking that sum.
ignorance gets its meaning when someone stops learning; he may see no purpose in it; may find it boring; may lack motivation; and more importantly the loss of will itself.
after that then, instead of understanding the world, he goes for enjoying the world.
according to Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher, he says : " here is only one inborn erroneous notion ... that we exist in order to be happy ... So long as we persist in this inborn error ... the world seems to us full of contradictions. For at every step, in great things and small, we are bound to experience that the world and life are certainly not arranged for the purpose of maintaining a happy existence ... hence the countenances of almost all elderly persons wear the expression of ... disappointment. "
yes, all the peoples concerns are on how to get a life with utmost joy,
that is not only a wrong path but also a prime one to face greediness, assumption, immorality, and many hundreds of things that ego can give.
but if anyone finds that he is to serve, to help, to built the future (not just ruin it ) is half way to save the mankind from being enemy of nature, thus also I'm socialist type but I prefer individuality over society; society can't be great while its individuals are lost; everyone must take a will to find his own true purpose, and then with these organs of body of society under disciplined will, we find humanity functional.
also people today cares more about science than ever but they should know science isn't the answer, it's not truth, merely a reflection of truth, made by our mind.
and also like Bertrand Russel said "... With every increase of knowledge and skill, wisdom becomes more necessary, for every such increase augments our capacity of realizing our purposes, and therefore augments our capacity for evil, if our purposes are unwise. The world needs wisdom as it has never needed it before; and if knowledge continues to increase, the world will need wisdom in the future even more than it does now. "... see ! the wisdom over science.
1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.~Isaac Asimov
It's great to see robots everywhere, they're being developed by our knowledge, we hope to make something similar or superior than our species, soon robot will get conscience, freewill and last to think with what they got.
but if they start to get loose, from our own set of laws and rights which gives them irrelevant freedom, or by force of their own, abusing & sabotaging in their systems, servers or may some kind of place called " robots control center " .
they shouldn't have rights, they must exist only to serve, we don't have free space in earth for them to get welfare; why not help poor other people instead ?
for example in next 50 years, I can't stand sight of a robot visiting supermarket along with me, and says to me : " space it dammit ! "
or even worse try to exterminate humanity or slave them instead or use them for biological purposes...jeez!!!
"I'm one of those people you hate because of genetics. It is the truth." -Brad Pitt
well, genetics aren't problem itself, it's about how exposed they are to our troubling world we humans made, besides, there is field about genetics, and it's not something that allows mistakes, and also it can be fatal threat, even immoral using it -for example- to produce artificial humans ( ! ), or even - mother of mercy - genetic bombs, bullets, and diseases !
"Ben, I just want to say one word to you, just one word : plastics " ~buck Henry and Calder wellington, the graduate
plastics were miracle at first but became an enemy within in the end.
our lives are ruled by plastics, it's cheap, reliable and easy to manufacture and to shape. but bloody things are now mutating us... lots of cancers, specifically breast cancer, are caused by plastics, and they're everywhere, we're sitting ducks !
we can't stopping using them, neither we can't stop producing them ( for now ), but we can restrict it for more important usage, but... still you can't ! but there is something you can :
-never ever eat something hot by plastics, especially liquid foods !
it make plastic to release ( more ! ) ...some chemical-can't remember the names-...but all you need to know is it endangers you more than ever.....so never do that !
“We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”~Albert Einstein
it's about cellphones.... or more specifically should I say technology as it represents work of technology itself.
well, you will learn how still our use of science is still naive and rude.
cell phones are great, you can talk, chat, enter internet.... but with all of those advantages comes disadvantages;
cellphones have radiation and can be multiplied by if we place it near any electromagnetic object, like your PC, I once remember had my phone on front of speaker and it just modified incoming sounds ?!
it's best way to kill yourself or next generation of yours by carrying cellphone with you everywhere, recent researches showed that within an hour there was unexpectedly change of habit in hemoglobins of blood, making them less effective, to carry less oxygen...in other place, I heard it really hits sexual parts just as bad as to your blood.
so better to use it rarely, only in emergency, have it turned off in most places, especially within a building, and you can at least use fly mode.
"Happiness: a good bank account, a good cook and a good digestion." ~Jean Jacques Rousseau
yes sir, eat, sleep and don't raise an elbow, capitalism got it all covered.
but this capitalism starts to hurts his unbelievers, steals their assets, make them and its own people as laborers, since the goal is not about humans, it's about profit, money itself, but it isn't bad for politics, it made world more peaceful than ever; no one can attacks a country that has high values of resources, it can have low military force because if someone dares others get involve with it too (and nearly makes the possibility of WW3 ! ) , but if there is poor country, it's open for an attack, some got conquered because of "hidden" resources in it and some are being slave to capitalist world, providing cheap laborers, the cash crops stuff, yeah they don't harvest it for food but to repay their debts and such to capitalist money lenders.
and more all this liberty and freedom stuffs aren't because of what we may call democracy, it's because the capitalism wants it ( for some of its own purposes ) or just don't want to bothers with social matters.
utterly the worst part of capitalism, is monopoly :
when one company reach enough to have monopoly over market, others start to lose businesses, bankrupts everywhere, many factories and producers are kept under pressure and duress, prices will be unreasonable, markets get odd, not only economical but also health problem, even social and more importantly political !
that's what happens if some company achieve monopoly, the all that capitalism saying of free market and competition will be lost.
for example : about all of American farmers are under the pressure of company named "Monsanto" , those farmers have to buy their seeds from that company , basically American agriculture is trapped into greediness of some food companies.
they have man everywhere, in FDA, in politics, you name it and if someone turns against them, he'll be followed by law and even sentences with millions of dollars to pay, no matter even that guy who called for justice is a just simple farmer ( or his little kid :X ), they're really a sick bastards in lawsuit.
about 90% of food products in US are made partly from corn , corn is popular in US, just as noodle in far east and rice in most parts of Asia.
but feeding cows in US is one of most bad ideas, it's cheap, but WTH, the cow wasn't naturally designed to digest corn and even to make things worse it increases a growth a dangerous bacteria-can't recall the name- into poor animal's stomach and from cow it comes to humans, BANG ! massacre !
you probably read, heard or watch about it already.
global warming, in other words, is just like " bombing our houses " for no purpose.
and with it comes all sorts of bad things, solar flares can now penetrate our "beloved" planet earth and also earth itself starts to change, space rocks can finally come into our air and hit our grounds nicely.
but before those, earth tries to react to this GW and predictably an Ice age will come which covers most of the planet.
also there is :
asteroid problem in future, some scientist says that in 2100 -i guess- it will hit the earth and tear it to pieces.
also if our air gets low in protecting the earth, soon smaller asteroid can hit and put a huge deep hole in our lands which may eat -for example- half of America's ground which next will be filled with water of ocean and then another where a huge mountain immediately rises because of asteroid hit's energy.
it will totally change a face of the earth
World War 3:
"I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones." ~albert Einstein
when I was a kid, I didn't got the picture why Einstein should say such things, but now things are more clear than ever.
if this conflicts of countries, the competitions, the greed, all of such things keeps to continue and leave no place to love humanity, we will soon set our very own death trap.
especially besides politics, economy ( which mostly means capitalism in our times ) is also a cause of it, soon humans began to take much space, work less, eat more and give less, while earth endures it all, but then when earth start to suffer, we will soon watch the results of our own actions, also with all those consuming, companies want to produce, take, extract more from the earth, soon lots of parts of the earth becomes useless, and if many of it happens in one country, its people will start to suffer and die in high rate, mostly because of starvation and lack of welfare.
powerful countries like US and -like most futuristic critics said- China, will fight over the remaining resources in the earth, while other people around the world starts to suffer and call for help.
the fools instead of uniting ( peacefully ) under one banner and think to find solution, they find it easy to fight for what remains and guess what, they use all of weapons they stored and brings all of their side effects with it, and no matter who wins the WW3, the winner keeps all the resources for himself and billions of people will die in a decade, and what good has the winner achieved ?
only limited resources which dries out immediately and soon they'll start to starve too and everyone will start from stone age ( perhaps after passing that ice age ! ) ... the stupidity of mankind has shown his face.
okay, I think that's enough for today, hope it was useful, still there are many things that haven't been discussed or some of these are need of some detail, which you folks will give a hand in it and help us to know more about the future.
thanks for reading all of it
