A gift from God
The future, I would like to see what ideas, behavioral patterns, and thought patterns exist and how they can be applied to make this planet a better place to live for all concerned..
What replaces capitalism (since it cannot last 1000 years), how has population density been dealt with? are we simply better off without personal space or do we find a way out?...
Plus, maybe once doing that, I can watch the sights outside my window change to reflect an even brighter future.
Thing of the questions that could be answered.
Copyright issues would be amusing.
Could you setup some kind of loop bootstrapping technology 1000 years?
Or something as simple as tomorrow's lottery numbers?
How would you use a pipeline to 1000 years in the future?
How would you use a pipeline to 1000 years to the past?
Won't choose the year 3000 .. because am not sure the world is gonna be any better. Who knows Capitalism might be at it's best .. world war V .. and it might be the same as it is today.
Don't wanna risk this big choice ..
You'd probably see moses stroll along the beach at low tide and jesus drop a bitta blood into water.
If they existed.
Also, if I can see the year 3000 then it must presumably exist already (for some value of "already") which would imply that future events are predetermined and nothing I will ever do can change them. Which is not something I've any wish to know.
Isn't this just
Gene Roddenberry's "Gate",
attached to the "Library"
where Spock got lost?
(See last post)
In the year 3000, what if our world has been destroyed or something (pick your poison - nuclear war, meteor, whatever). That wouldn't be much fun to take a chance at watching. For me anyhow. I can watch a scifi movie just the same...
To gaze out a windoww & look a thousand years hence doesen't seem very productive. Would I even recognize anything? And if I did recognize something, would it really be of value today?
Then, there is the chance I would gaze out & see utter devastation or nothing at all. There's something I don't care to know.
And if I am not able to change the events in the year 3000, then I don't have free will, then nothing really matters.
Seeing biblical events would proove that god exists, and then the fact of seeing it would be pointless.
There is no true answer, everything leads to something you can do nothing about. :) Great.
Perhaps if we can prove or disprove the identity of God, then we might be able to IMPROVE y3k, instead of just investigating it.
Most people are not smart enough to understand real evidence for or against first grade math, let alone God. I guess I'd go with y3k, maybe then I could make a difference with what I learned.
