I can't find the video itself. I'm blind, help me!

Click the red/black logo lol, the image above the title. 

 

Regarding his predictions, while I agree with most of it I don't see the globe theatre in your living room happening, at least not as holograms. I honestly believe we will spend almost all our time in VR because by this stage it will be so unbelievably real. I think VR will break down traditional society, and we may well end up living like people on the matrix, never leaving the simulated world. All infrastructure will maintain itself and not require any human input by this stage.

Herp derp I'm stupid.

 

Regardless, yeah, it seems pretty unbelievable. Then again, I bet his 1973 predictions also seemed pretty damn surreal...

It amazes me just how accurate his 1973 predictions were, this guy clearly knows his stuff.

I believe sadly that it's just as likely that the middle east, Africa and parts of the rest o the world being ran by religious people. These people hate tech, science and thinking...

 

This is what I fear for our future and we can see this occurring throughout the middle east now. Not to even get into the fact that the tea-party is slashing our science budget now.

 

It is a fear of mine that this likely hood is far too likely... :(

I very much doubt that. I think that religious people are a dying breed, to be honest. Even Islam which appears to be thriving will probably start declining sooner or later. Science is just too dominant to die.

^ It depends on where you live. In more rural areas, religion is still going strong and shows no sign of slow disappearance as you claim.

In some figures, it is estimated that up to 40% of Americans believe in creation is a reasonable alternative to evolution. I've been told by a classmate of mine who spent a gap-year in Texas that she encountered various families very vocal about this, all of them deeply religous, strong believers and creationists.


"All scientific advancement due to intellegence overcoming, compensating, for limitations. Can't carry a load, so invent wheel. Can't catch food, so invent spear. Limitations. No limitations, no advancement. No advancement, culture stagnates. Works other way too. Advancement before culture is ready. Disastrous."

There's definitely truth in that...

The difference across the country is quite interesting. I've never stumbled upon this attitude around my neck of the woods (the strong type anyway). Even my sister's godfather who can be pretty damn conservative doesn't flaunt the creation argument. Although I do have a friend who started recently posting anti-evolution stuff on his Facebook page.


"Since we first emerged, a few million years ago in East Africa, we have meandered our way around the planet. There are now people on every continent and the remotest islands, from pole to pole, from Mount Everest to the Dead Sea, on the ocean bottoms and even, occasionally, in residence 200 miles up - humans, like the gods of old, living in the sky."

Also I've been watching the arab spring. Appears to be between people that want freedom and people that want to force religion on everyone.

 

I am really hoping the freedom people win.

True, but 50% of the world's population lives in urban areas, and this is a rising percentage. Rural communities are gradually adapting to modern ways of life.

Yeah. I think eyesight problems will probably peak sometime around the middle of this century, due to increased constant use of technology.

here's the youtube version:

at 2:35, he mentioned about corporations and govts not existing. i think so too, and if ever govt's are still around, they'd probably be reduced to something as ineffective as the UN today. why do you still need them when you, as an indiviual, is already more self-sufficient and "highly-autonomous" than any effective country of the present. one day we will also be able to create an AI probably implanted in us, that automatically activates when something life-threatening comes along (like accidents or attacks) so that you cannot get harmed by any individual. same way for the others, you cannot harm them since they also have this kind of protection technology like you. 

 

if he happens to be at least 80% correct with his prediction, resource-based economy would be at least possible; and at most, unnecessary.
