I wonder what a person from this forum would think if they woke up 200 years from now(maybe because they got really hurt but ended up using cryonics and was revived). Would they still be shocked, or would they be better able to adjust since we are people already trying to look and predict the future. Probably would get a lot of things wrong.

Well I think we would have a better idea of this future than the normal person. I mean, look at all the time we spend discussing and researching the future.
 
Other hand, typical futuretimeliner would be even more shocked or angered if this real future will not be even close to what he/she imagined and expected (and this will happen almost for sure). :)
Only time will tell... :)

  • Singular neighborhoods can be wealthier than the entire Roman Empire

Wait, no, singular individuals can be wealthier than the entire Roman Empire. 

 

Looking back at this list of features, I'm almost upset that I didn't expand the number of really futuristic things we have today.

 

Like, Japan is an industrialized nation. In that era, Japan was an isolated feudal state and would be for another 70 years or so. 

 

Or that oil, the stuff they threw away because they thought it was pretty much useless, is the lifeblood for our modern civilization.

I wonder, if the 1815's human would wake up in 2016's downtown New York, would it be possible for him/her to actually die of shock in the spot.

Would they still be shocked, or would they be better able to adjust since we are people already trying to look and predict the future. Probably would get a lot of things wrong.

Here's a question: if a person from 1016 got hurt and woke up in 1216, do you think they'd be all that shocked by the changes? Aside from the map, not much changed. Even art stayed relatively the same. 

 

To us, from the futuristic year of 2016, the idea of things remaining the same across centuries seems like Hell. It's more like Middle Earth— where outside of political changes, technology and magic doesn't seem to change from Age 1 to Age 4. That's a sign things are much different than they usually ever were. 

 

Take a person from 2016 BC and bring them to 1816 BC, and they only thing that they'd notice was that the geopolitical map had changed. Bring a person from 2016 BC to 1016 BC, and the same deal occurs. Bring a person from 2016 BC to 1016 AD, and okay, they'd start to notice some changes. Farming, most importantly, has been radically changed to the point it's much more efficient. But life itself is the same as it had always been, really. 

 

 

Bring a person from 2016 BC to 2016 AD and the world has become utterly unrecognizable to them. I should create a thread all about that one too, and I will, but just go with it right now. 

 

The same level of extraordinary change will occur to us millennials when it comes to the year 2116, and it'll be ten times greater when it's 2216.

I wonder what he/she would be surprised that there won't be. For example, Lunar colonization.

But Mars has been colonized. Entirely by robots.
