  • Locationwhere fanciful imaginings and hard won knowledge meet to genesis the future.

I keep wanting to get a few of the makers I know together and see if we could create the future that they thought we'd have now. Like full on just make that retro future real as far as we can. passenger drone flying car, housework robot, push button meal preperation, etc. I look at the predictions that 'haven't happened' and mostly it's because we went another direction, not because it's impossible.

Live content within small means. Seek elegance rather than luxury, Grace over fashion and wealth over riches.
Listen to clouds and mountains, children and sages. Act bravely, think boldly.
Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.

Exactly,

 

All the wealth want back to the wealthy as the wealthy brainwashed the population to turn against unions and their right to have a fair and decent wage. Good luck affording a house hold robot or a flying car with the wages people make these days...Hell, society doesn't even invest in infrastructure anymore for the most part.

 

How insane.

 

I think if assholes like Reagan, Bushs and Trumps never got into power the future would have want more like we expected.

The 50s truly began in 1947.
