The 21st century has begun.
Man, through the ages, has undergone many changes from the time when he depicted a herd of mammoths on the walls of his cave to these days when he can create beautiful pictures and even make coffee by use of computer technologies without leaving his favourite chair. The 20th century made huge steps in developing computer technologies and reached many goals that made our life much easier. What should we expect in the 21st century?
First of all, I think that the pace of our life will speed up: we will move faster from one place to another, from one continent to another using high speed jet airplanes. Second of all, I believe that we will be able to do many things that take much time now without leaving our house. Computers will be everywhere including in our clothes. Many people may even have chips and mini computers inserted in their heads to hold huge amount of information and have a quick access to it. (Just saying!)
But what will be the most amazing thing in the 21st century are the flights to the outer space and Mars that will be available to all people. The one way trip to Mars is already in progress. Scientists say that Mars has many things similar to the Earth’s. Moreover, they say that with the help of modern technology people can artificially create conditions that will allow people to live there on the constant basis.
Life would have become even easier. People would have found ways to take care of the climatic change. We could have cheap power to get us past our petroleum-based economy. We could also deal with a lot of pollution by eliminating coal and petrochemical power plants. We could eliminate more by feeding the pollutants directly to the reactor.
Everyday chores would become even easier. New technologies will make life simpler. Every piece of hospital equipment will be computer driven & the computer experts run the show with the doctors depending on the heavily. And they could have mechanical organs, so if somebody’s organ fails, they use those. Connectivity (Phones and other gadgets) will make life more interesting. Travel will be a lot easier too. Maybe even teleportation would be possible.
To sum up, I am sure that many amazing changes will be brought by the 21st century. Furthermore, I think that with the help of the contemporary technologies people can do many things that were even difficult to imagine a century ago. So, nowadays it is rather difficult and even impossible to imagine all changes that will happen in the next decades.
But hopefully, there will be an end to all the evil things. All the new inventions are hopefully not put to a bad use. But you never know what will happen. Lets pray things change for better.
I would like to end with a quote from Journey through the Power of the Rainbow: Quotations from a Life Made Out of Poetry by Aberjhani
“We are living in an era in which billions of people are grappling to promote communication, tolerance, and understanding over the more destructive forces of war, terrorism, and political chaos that have characterized the beginning of the 21st Century.”
