Abortion would be considered a heated debate. Advances in genetic engineering will allow men and women to switch their fertility on and off: a more advanced method of birth control that will make unintended pregnancies extreme. rare.
Burn fossil fuels for energy
Air pollution is still killing 200,000 people in the United States annual. This is more than 60 times the number of people who died from the 9/11 attacks each year. (Where is the fight against nuclear extremism?) But even pollution in America is nothing compared to countries like China. Here’s what Beijing looks like after two rainy days and on an ordinary day:
What happens to the swept away rain puddle? (Bobak / CC BY-SA 2.5Globally, air pollution kills five million people each year. Smoke from burning coal from India, China and other coal-rich countries falls into the oceans and polluting the ecosystem with mercury, including the fish we eat.
The people of the future will be horrified when we spend hundreds of billions of dollars to prevent risks of such a small but highly visible impact as terrorism, but endure hundreds of thousands of deaths each year to energy production – especially when the renewable energy provides clean energy and fuel free. (Let’s say it again, fiscal conservatives: free fuel. Green energy may be for hippie liberalists, but renewable energy may be for capitalists and conservatives.)
Suffering from houses and bodies infected with organisms
Currently, there are hundreds of millions of insects that live on your body and in your home. Small dust mites on your mattress, pillow, rug and body, no matter how clean everything is. Tiny demodex mites live in your eyelash follicles and snoop on your face At night. And this doesn’t even take into account the trillions of bacteria and parasites that live inside us. Our body like the planet, full of life that are not us.
Millions of these people vandalize people’s beds, sofas, homes and bodies. Fashion folk would be completely disgusted. They will have nanotechnology antibodies – tiny machines that patrol our homes and skin, search for food for dust mites (our scales), and destroy little bloodsuckers. They are unable to completely eliminate all insects and bacteria – humans have developed symbiosis with them; we need bacteria to do things like digest food – but the nanobots will control this flora, keep it within healthy limits and get rid of any germs or infections that grow out of control. control.
And forget about the infestation of creatures like cockroaches. Nanobots will destroy larger family pests in series. The real destroyers of the future will not wreak havoc on humanity: They will slaughter our unwanted insect watchers.
Radiation, chemotherapy, skull tumors and many “modern” drugs
In the future, cancer will be treated with either drug delivery or precisely guided gene therapy. The idea of exposing patients to large doses of radiation or chemicals to kill cancer – hopefully before treatment kills the patient – will scare the folk in the future. Similarly, other skull tumor resection and other invasive surgeries will be replaced with non-invasive methods medical nanobots. These micro-robots will enter the body by mouth or by injection, go to the problem area and perform microsurgery without an incision or sewing thread. Later, we can use it force field to control the tissues inside the body completely non-invasive.
However, we shouldn’t feel bad about this. Every society finds their ancestors’ medical practices disgusting. Medical science continues to evolve from barbarism to courtesy, until courtesy turns into the new barbarism.
Lack of brain-computer interface
Just as I am surprised that my parents grew up without television, and millennials wonder how we can survive without the internet, our great-grandchildren will be amazed that we can operate without the need for direct brain-computer interface. The technology is already here, albeit in its infancy. Brain-computer interfaces allow everyone to have autism syndrome – a state in which someone is conscious but paralyzed – for communication.
