The world is inner-linked into a global economy...

-Parts of it will look like Haiti, Afighastan and the poorer parts of our world

-and parts will be like Italian info invisions it. Super tall buildings, bullet trains that can go 400 mph, different looking cars.

 

The question really is "what percentage" of the globe will look what? I'm really hoping Italian info's vision for the world wins out in most cases, but who knows.

That Ring-World shit that bee14ish posted looks bad ass! I'd totally live in a space-colony like that far into the future.

 

You know the funny thing is if our generation ends up living forever we'll be the ones that truely appreciate the future, aweing in amazement at the ability to live in space. While the newer generations will be born in the time and not know of anything else. "Live in space? Eh... I'd rather stay at my aunts place in antartica"

Let's be honest,

 

I doubt I'll live past 70. Maybe if we can cure cancer, heart disease but it won't be more then 120 even then.

Radical life extension via regenerative medicine, nanotech etc. should be available in maybe a couple decades. Unless you're already 50 or 60 I think you should be more optimistic.

also new and cheaper techniques to "freeze" yourself will be available around mid century or earlier. Some scientists think the people who are frozen today can be regenerated, so just went to the freezing techniques available later this century.

 

And I agree; serious progress is being made in life extension! There should be a cure for heart disease by the time your 70 too.

The setting you posted looks like something that belong in a late 1990's nickelodeon series that portrays lizards as an advanced alien race.

I do believe we are in for some horrible wars in the future, but I hope we don't destroy ourselves.

In any case, this picture is amazingly beautiful and so horribly unethical and savage at the same time.

War represents the pinnacle of technology and the most primitive side of humanity.

^ As you can probably tell, huge Deus Ex fan :p

It all depends. I'd say if you're in your mid-40s or older, you probably shouldn't be crazy optimistic about living forever (I know it's possible and if cryogenics technology comes as early as some say it will then you could just freeze yourself until you can live forever, but I digress). I think that the majority of millennials will be able to easily last to the point where aging is reversible and man and machine have merged, effectively ensuring their dominance as one of the first generations to be technologically immortal.

 

Anyway, I actually thought this was a pretty good depiction of a future society, minus the cityscape in the background. Before you talk about how lifeless it looks, I agree with the timeline when it comes to the whole self-sufficient mega building kind of society surrounded by landscape ravaged by global warming and other environmental affects. It captures the whole desolate feel of the outside, with only a few transport-looking vehicles outside bringing life to everything, as everyone else would be inside their mega-buildings, probably in FIVR. This is probably a 2060s to 2090s society I'm thinking of.

I should say working, reliable, consumer-available cryogenics.

I'm hoping for a lot of 'green spaces', which in itself may be highly unrealistic.

Ha. Ha ha. I am a lizard man from the planet Radicrull and I find that to be a very funny joke.But no really, I'm aware that it looks cartoonish and has an odd color scheme. A bit of background: I occasionally work on a flash-animated time-travel adventure series in which the year 1 million is pivotal to the plot. There's only like 4 episodes but a lot of extended universe material, and the crux of this far future is that society and posthumanism are controlled by a technocratic ruling caste that has maintained the status quo for an indeterminate amount of time. So, a renegade scientist uses forbidden technology to create a time machine out of a spaceship so he can find the secrets of mankind's past and find something to overthrow the oppressive technocracy, and the series follows the exploits of his crew. That picture is the interior of that spaceship.Oh yeah and also humans in the future look like greys. So there you go.

Now that's what I'm talking about, It sounds like something I'd watch on Fox during sunday nights.

That's the plan anyway, or something similar.

It is mindless anti-government idiocy. If it isn't turned back I predict the end of this country as a world power. Simply put the need to educate our entire population like any sane country is sen as wrong by the cult that practice this foolish idiocy. So is simple workers rights, child labor and every other sane policy of the modern world."
