What's the future hold Jow Forums ? When I grow up as a kid I had book with a timeline and illustrations (might be the same artist as pic related) who draw a VERY optimistic roadmap for Humanity until 2100.
What's the future hold Jow Forums ? When I grow up as a kid I had book with a timeline...
If there is one thing I know people are really shit at predicting the future
Taking every single sci-fi movie, book, etc and figuring out what doesn't happen between all of them is a better predictor of the future than every single trope in existence
You can thank the NSA and USA in general for putting backdoors and shit the tech world overall.
If only the NSA was that omniscient
Problem with these authors is that they thought that people will seek progress for the sake of progress. Instead, we seek money.
Money is holding us back.
Not always true, see this for exemple :
Well that's the big problem, Big investments in technology should be way more than smartphones and shitty apps. Facebook buying WhatsApp for 20B$ was mindblowing.
Not enough money is being injected in fundamental reasearchs. That was not the case in the 60's and 70's.
It'll be something you could have never conceived of in your wildest dreams, yet entirely mundane when compared to what those dreams might have held.
What's the future hold
choking to death on methane. don't have kids, its a cruelty now
It will be very bleak for humanity. We won't be exploring the stars and colonizing other planets. Humanity will remain on Earth and become extinct long before the Sun becomes a red giant.
Money is holding us back.
Humans are inherently self-interested. Money isn't the cause of that, money is just quantifying what already is there. Tell some random guy on the street that you want to put a man on Mars and he'll say "Well that's cool and all, but what's it do for me and my life? Nothing."
At best the we'll be in some noir dystopian future and you'll be living out of a capsule hotel. You think you'll be a cool netrunner but in fact you'll be bottom of the ladder meat for the machine.
At worst we'll just wipe ourselves out before that. Humanity is too childish to leave this planet and colonise the stars. We don't deserve it.
This. So much this.
We don't care about investing into the future or exploring the stars. We just want mega corporations to take over and sell us shiny toys.
The new generation is perpetually offended by nothing because they have nothing to fight for and nothing to drive them. We are directionless.
What do you expect from random hillbilly?
I meant all people working in big corporations which doesn't really add much to progress
Compare amount of people working in silicone valley vs CERN or NASA
But yeah, money is manifestation of human ego
Strong AI and designers babies with 160IQ are our only hope. Maybe the last time Humanity will try to play god before total collapse.
4th industrial evolution is a meme and never happend because we (for the moment) failed at produce a new reliable energy source like fusion.
today's megalopolis but rapidly deteriorating and full of niggers
read the book "The Next Million Years" by Charles Galton Darwin to see what the social engineers, atlanticists, royal society etc. have planned for us. It's not o'niel cylinders
Just not enough money going into NASA combined with them getting eternally cucked by presidents changing their manifesto regarding space ever 4 years. But if NASA had the resources they had in the 60s, adjusted for inflation (10% of GPD i think?)... maybe they could so something impressive
t. 30 person from 30 years ago
The beasts will rule once more. Nothing will remain of the pitiful naked apes, except some stray styrofoam and rusted abandoned satellites. No one will know or care about the race of man that was.
NASA's inflation adjusted budget is half of what it was during the Apollo peak, which would be enough to do a lot more than they are now, but as you said political meddling is a big issue; not just presidents changing their direction, but also Congress wanting to spread contract work out among as many districts as possible.
Just look at all the money tossed at the SLS program, which has yet to fly anything, versus the relative pittance SpaceX has spent on the Falcon 9 and Heavy rockets.
What's the future hold Jow Forums ?
If you want a vision of the future, imagine millions of niggers on welfare - forever.
Even inflation adjusted 20 Billion dollars should be enough money for mothership or rail launched scramjet SSTO's
You can blame that but money is literally a manner of converting physical work into potential work. Humans cannot function without money, they would simply resort to trading things. They do what they must. Money drives us forward, it was and always is the driving force. It is food, sound, light, air conditioning, and travel. Rich individuals just tend to not be so interested in, or lack the knowledge to invest themselves to, advancing technology.
Most very richs people only care about short term investments and quick returns and have their money managed by blind trust funds.
Wouldn't low grav actually make people taller?
Anyone with a greater then normal IQ is bored, depressed and full of mistrust if not out right hate of others.
At 130 IQ they start to see the roots and operations of how things work so become even more antisocial and move into minipulation or predatory when it comes to human interactions.
At 140 IQ they move beyond simple games and theater in social interplay to outright ignoring others as tiresome and poison.
At 150 IQ they see who, what and how the world they life in exists their demons grow and their will fades.
At 160 IQ the correct and true are just to obvious of ignore. Each new discovery becomes cancer to the mind, distractions are chased as a solution to awareness.
Beyond this point it matters not, reality will not be ignored. What is true is not a delusion. There is only awareness of all and distractions are no longer possible.
Welcome to your abominations screaming without you even being able to understand anything they do or say.
They cannot forget nor can they ignore. No fun, humor or faith. Only awareness, wakefulness and pain, unending.
Stupid hurts as you watch a child fall into a fire and burn.
IQ and intelligence will not save this world. No one wants the solution when the problems pay so well.
Nasa is a boomer fairy tale. They do nothing productive. The are political and are used as such. Distractions and lies, nothing more.
Put high IQ people on a synthetic drug like MDMA. Problem solve.
My nigga. Uni labs with a mixed of private and public funding is where the real things at.
Wow, user, those jello baby xrays sure are interesting, where did you find actual data on children raised on Ceres?
You didn't? The data is made up, and we have literally no data supporting your assertions?
Exactly. Apparently the R&D cost for the Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy put together was less than $1 billion dollars. To develop the most capable rockets currently flying. $20 billion a year, spent wisely, should have been enough to have us on Mars right now.
Hopefully Ol'Musky gets Starlink up and running well. That should give him enough profit to bootstrap his own Mars program.
Shit, it should be enough to have us sailing out to the next star in person.
And he is absolutely correct.
years of jews(satanist) reign for hundreds of years more, armaggeddon , second coming of jesus
People in 999 thought the same. Never happened.
1000 years pass
those who defy holiness and those that follow it will go trough same faith of the world
The future holds nothing. Humanity will die out in a protracted extinction. We're too dumb and violent to go beyond this ball of rock.
blame postmodernism and the frankfurt school of philosophy and social theory, the originators of the idea that nothing matters because everything is relative
you can look at it from the perspective that they were acting in part of the classic NWO conspiracy theory, or the trilatteral comission conspiracy theory, but the sad reality is that it was just a bunch of communist assholes trying to come up with an ideology that would let them argue purely on semantics with no regard for facts in an academic context
Probably endless dystopian trash but cool pc parts.
That looks like art from Space Base 2000. I had that book. Really cool sci-fi art.
um. sweety we already got to space.
big data analysis
kek meme shit.
your nasa bosses can have nice salary while nothing really happen
this is why there private spacecraft launches already.
We are going, full steam ahead, towards a dystopia akin to 1984 with total control of the society (fused with the state) over an individual.
I'd say with the trends right now we are going to
- see increased elitization of ownership of anything from your socks and software to your home, car, furniture.
- mass surveilance and mass telling-on with social networks and govt/private data-bases becoming more and more evolved and all-encompassing. The society is already being guided into this, see: bandwagoning on "moral offenders" in social networks and media and zero tolerance towards mistakes.
- complete transformation of democratic institutions into lobbying
Also very likely wars since Cold War and WW2 experiences are fading from mass memory. Cold War elites retiring from higher posts bring more radical politics back while at the same time breaking personal ties with the opposing camp - everywhere in the US, Russia, Europe, China.
So yeah, no space for us.
