    Interesting take. Agree with both quoted sentences, but don't think it is that far off. Probably will come in our lifetimes . . . depending on how long you and I live.

    One world leader! That would never work. There are to many different life styles in the world. The leader would have to favor one and the other would revolt. Look at the mess in the UN. They are shifting the cost of all the corruption in the smaller countries on to the larger countries. The larger countries have noticed this and are lowering contributions. The UN is trying to impress the desires of some countries on others. Look at there latest gun ban they are trying to pass over the US constitution. NO we do not all think alike or live alike.

    That's a nice thought but human nature tells us there will be no peace until there is a drastic and permanent change to the entire world.

    Such a drastic change could only be possible by some sort of supernatural intervention. Man will never accomplish this change. As long as there are two people on earth who are somewhat free from external authoritative restraint there will be no real lasting peace. Ever notice that we don't have to teach children how to be bad? Being bad comes quite natural. Learning how to be good is the challenge. This by itself disproves the notion some have that man is basically good. Being good (selfless, benevolent, peaceful, etc.,) comes as one learns to retrain oneself and submit to rules that make life better for everyone. All of us from birth are natural rebels. If left to ourselves we grow worse by the day.

    How we got on planet earth is highly debated today with the most common consensuses now being the accidental process of evolution. A much smaller element believe in a Creator God and an even smaller group go with the UFO theory. Personally I think evolution is so much monkey business. I believe we were put here and this all didn't happen by a series of happy happenstances. The very idea that man is the master of a universe that has been around forever is totally wacko.

    My point is, the intelligence that put us here will one day return when the plan has been completed. And that's what I think planet earth is primarily about, a plan. Once the purpose has been fulfilled the end will come.

    Mankind will never manage the universe (we can't manage earth) nor will we ever be able to solve our own problems. We are rapidly ruining this planet and wasting precious resources. Like I stated earlier, we'll never make it into any serious space colonization. We'll do some more space experiments and get some pretty spectacular pictures (and info) but we're already on our way down for the most part. The world is in a terrible financial mess and space projects cost a lot of money that we don't have. The means simply isn't there for "beam me up Scotty."

    In the very near future the world will primarily be focused on food production and the clean water issue. Added to this will be research on all the diseases threatening to destroy us. The space program will gradually diminish to almost nothing of any great significance. Actually we're already seeing this.

    First of all, we will NOT colonize Mars. There will be a environmental impact study done that will conclude that the introduction of humans will be bad for Mars. California will be the first to sell its state name to the highest bidder for 3-year contracts. In 2105 this will be the State of Verizon, not California. Food will be served in large, community dining halls because the price of food will be so high that the average, individual household won't be able to afford it whereas the community hall can buy and prepare in bulk. There will be walk-in, free clinics for those wanting abortions. The sale and use of tobacco and alcohol will cease but smoking pot will be legal everywhere. The government will discover that heavy pot use induces pacifism and makes for an easily controlled population. There will be a pill that, when taken, will actually be better than sex which will begin to erode opposite sex atraction.(I think it's already available in some larger cities) Vacations will be limited in the amount of miles that can be travelled to reduce greenhouse gases. Longer trips can be purchased meaning the rich will be able to go wherever they want. The best doctors and medical equipment will only be available to the rich at private resort-type facilities. Everyone else will have to go to public clinics that will be at the same location as the community dining halls. That will eliminate having to route public transportation to more than one location. All citizens will be required to take public transportation except for those that can afford their own vehicles and fuel. When you die, nothing you owned will be able to go to your family; it will all go to the central government that will slowly disperse, what they don't want to keep, to the people that can't take care of themselves. (Much like California welfare) Other than those little changes, things shouldn't be much different than they are now.

    In another 100 years people will still be finding unique and creative ways to talk government politics on forums where it's not allowed. Most of these people will be the direct descendents of those who did the same thing 100 years before them. The world will keep turning, fast food will still be here, and by that time someone will have invented a type of tiny handheld metal detector that will locate gold rings a mile away and thirty-feet down.

    Another toy will help destroy
    The elder race of man
    Forget about your silly whim
    It doesn't fit the Plan!

    And the meek shall inherit the earth...







    "I lie awake, staring out at the bleakness of Megadon. City and sky become one, merging into a single plane, a vast sea of unbroken grey. The Twin Moons, just two pale orbs as they trace their way across the steely sky. I used to think I had a pretty good life here, just plugging into my machine for the day, then watching Templevision or reading a Temple Paper in the evening.

    "My friend Jon always said it was nicer here than under the atmospheric domes of the Outer Planets. We have had peace since 2062, when the surviving planets were banded together under the Red Star of the Solar Federation. The less fortunate gave us a few new moons.
    I believed what I was told. I thought it was a good life, I thought I was happy. Then I found something that changed it all..."

    I. Overture

    And the meek shall inherit the earth...

    II. Temples of Syrinx

    ... "The massive grey walls of the Temples rise from the heart of every Federation city. I have always been awed by them, to think that every single facet of every life is regulated and directed from within! Our books, our music, our work and play are all looked after by the benevolent wisdom of the priests..."

    We've taken care of everything
    The words you hear, the songs you sing
    The pictures that give pleasure to your eyes.
    It's one for all and all for one
    We work together, common sons
    Never need to wonder how or why.

    We are the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx
    Our great computers fill the hallowed halls.
    We are the Priests, of the Temples of Syrinx
    All the gifts of life are held within our walls.

    Look around at this world we've made
    Equality our stock in trade
    Come and join the Brotherhood of Man
    Oh, what a nice, contented world
    Let the banners be unfurled
    Hold the Red Star proudly high in hand.

    We are the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx
    Our great computers fill the hallowed halls.
    We are the Priests, of the Temples of Syrinx
    All the gifts of life are held within our walls.

    III. Discovery

    ... "Behind my beloved waterfall, in the little room that was hidden beneath the cave, I found it. I brushed away the dust of the years, and picked it up, holding it reverently in my hands. I had no idea what it might be, but it was beautiful" ...

    ... "I learned to lay my fingers across the wires, and to turn the keys to make them sound differently. As I struck the wires with my other hand, I produced my first harmonious sounds, and soon my own music! How different it could be from the music of the Temples! I can't wait to tell the priests about it! ..."

    What can this strange device be?
    When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
    It's got wires that vibrate and give music
    What can this thing be that I found?

    See how it sings like a sad heart
    And joyously screams out its pain
    Sounds that build high like a mountain
    Or notes that fall gently like rain.

    I can't wait to share this new wonder
    The people will all see its light
    Let them all make their own music
    The Priests praise my name on this night.

    IV. Presentation

    ... "In the sudden silence as I finished playing, I looked up to a circle of grim, expressionless faces. Father Brown rose to his feet, and his somnolent voice echoed throughout the silent Temple Hall." ...

    ... "Instead of the grateful joy that I expected, they were words of quiet rejection! Instead of praise, sullen dismissal. I watched in shock and horror as Father Brown ground my precious instrument to splinters beneath his feet..."

    I know it's most unusual
    To come before you so
    But I've found an ancient miracle
    I thought that you should know
    Listen to my music
    And hear what it can do
    There's something here as strong as life
    I know that it will reach you.

    Yes, we know, it's nothing new
    It's just a waste of time
    We have no need for ancient ways
    Our world is doing fine
    Another toy will help destroy
    The elder race of man
    Forget about your silly whim
    It doesn't fit the plan.

    I can't believe you're saying
    These things just can't be true
    Our world could use this beauty
    Just think what we might do.
    Listen to my music
    And hear what it can do
    There's something here as strong as life
    I know that it will reach you.

    Don't annoy us further!
    We have our work to do.
    Just think about the average
    What use have they for you?
    Another toy will help destroy
    The elder race of man
    Forget about your silly whim
    It doesn't fit the Plan!

    V. Oracle: The Dream

    ... "I guess it was a dream, but even now it all seems so vivid to me. Clearly yet I see the beckoning hand of the oracle as he stood at the summit of the staircase" ...

    ... "I see still the incredible beauty of the sculptured cities and the pure spirit of man revealed in the lives and works of this world. I was overwhelmed by both wonder and understanding as I saw a completely different way to life, a way that had been crushed by the Federation long ago. I saw now how meaningless life had become with the loss of all these things ..."

    I wandered home though the silent streets
    And fell into a fitful sleep
    Escape to realms beyond the night
    Dream can't you show me the light?

    I stand atop a spiral stair
    An oracle confronts me there
    He leads me on light years away
    Through astral nights, galactic days
    I see the works of gifted hands
    That grace this strange and wondrous land
    I see the hand of man arise
    With hungry mind and open eyes

    They left the planet long ago
    The elder race still learn and grow
    Their power grows with purpose strong
    To claim the home where they belong
    Home to tear the Temples down...
    Home to change!

    VI. Soliloquy

    ... "I have not left this cave for days now, it has become my last refuge in my total despair. I have only the music of the waterfall to comfort me now. I can no longer live under the control of the Federation, but there is no other place to go. My last hope is that with my death I may pass into the world of my dream, and know peace at last."

    The sleep is still in my eyes
    The dream is still in my head
    I heave a sigh and sadly smile
    And lie a while in bed
    I wish that it might come to pass
    Not fade like all my dreams...

    Just think of what my life might be
    In a world like I have seen!
    I don't think I can carry on
    Carry on this cold and empty life

    My spirits are low in the depths of despair
    My lifeblood...
    ...spills over...

    VII. The Grand Finale

    YouTube Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQEgZNqa8jE

    "I lie awake, staring out at the bleakness of Megadon. City and sky become one, merging into a single plane, a vast sea of unbroken grey. The Twin Moons, just two pale orbs as they trace their way across the steely sky. I used to think I had a pretty good life here, just plugging into my machine for the day, then watching Templevision or reading a Temple Paper in the evening.

    "My friend Jon always said it was nicer here than under the atmospheric domes of the Outer Planets. We have had peace since 2062, when the surviving planets were banded together under the Red Star of the Solar Federation. The less fortunate gave us a few new moons.
    I believed what I was told. I thought it was a good life, I thought I was happy. Then I found something that changed it all..."

    I. Overture

    And the meek shall inherit the earth...

    II. Temples of Syrinx

    ... "The massive grey walls of the Temples rise from the heart of every Federation city. I have always been awed by them, to think that every single facet of every life is regulated and directed from within! Our books, our music, our work and play are all looked after by the benevolent wisdom of the priests..."

    We've taken care of everything
    The words you hear, the songs you sing
    The pictures that give pleasure to your eyes.
    It's one for all and all for one
    We work together, common sons
    Never need to wonder how or why.

    We are the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx
    Our great computers fill the hallowed halls.
    We are the Priests, of the Temples of Syrinx
    All the gifts of life are held within our walls.

    Look around at this world we've made
    Equality our stock in trade
    Come and join the Brotherhood of Man
    Oh, what a nice, contented world
    Let the banners be unfurled
    Hold the Red Star proudly high in hand.

    We are the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx
    Our great computers fill the hallowed halls.
    We are the Priests, of the Temples of Syrinx
    All the gifts of life are held within our walls.

    III. Discovery

    ... "Behind my beloved waterfall, in the little room that was hidden beneath the cave, I found it. I brushed away the dust of the years, and picked it up, holding it reverently in my hands. I had no idea what it might be, but it was beautiful" ...

    ... "I learned to lay my fingers across the wires, and to turn the keys to make them sound differently. As I struck the wires with my other hand, I produced my first harmonious sounds, and soon my own music! How different it could be from the music of the Temples! I can't wait to tell the priests about it! ..."

    What can this strange device be?
    When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
    It's got wires that vibrate and give music
    What can this thing be that I found?

    See how it sings like a sad heart
    And joyously screams out its pain
    Sounds that build high like a mountain
    Or notes that fall gently like rain.

    I can't wait to share this new wonder
    The people will all see its light
    Let them all make their own music
    The Priests praise my name on this night.

    IV. Presentation

    ... "In the sudden silence as I finished playing, I looked up to a circle of grim, expressionless faces. Father Brown rose to his feet, and his somnolent voice echoed throughout the silent Temple Hall." ...

    ... "Instead of the grateful joy that I expected, they were words of quiet rejection! Instead of praise, sullen dismissal. I watched in shock and horror as Father Brown ground my precious instrument to splinters beneath his feet..."

    I know it's most unusual
    To come before you so
    But I've found an ancient miracle
    I thought that you should know
    Listen to my music
    And hear what it can do
    There's something here as strong as life
    I know that it will reach you.

    Yes, we know, it's nothing new
    It's just a waste of time
    We have no need for ancient ways
    Our world is doing fine
    Another toy will help destroy
    The elder race of man
    Forget about your silly whim
    It doesn't fit the plan.

    I can't believe you're saying
    These things just can't be true
    Our world could use this beauty
    Just think what we might do.
    Listen to my music
    And hear what it can do
    There's something here as strong as life
    I know that it will reach you.

    Don't annoy us further!
    We have our work to do.
    Just think about the average
    What use have they for you?
    Another toy will help destroy
    The elder race of man
    Forget about your silly whim
    It doesn't fit the Plan!

    V. Oracle: The Dream

    ... "I guess it was a dream, but even now it all seems so vivid to me. Clearly yet I see the beckoning hand of the oracle as he stood at the summit of the staircase" ...

    ... "I see still the incredible beauty of the sculptured cities and the pure spirit of man revealed in the lives and works of this world. I was overwhelmed by both wonder and understanding as I saw a completely different way to life, a way that had been crushed by the Federation long ago. I saw now how meaningless life had become with the loss of all these things ..."

    I wandered home though the silent streets
    And fell into a fitful sleep
    Escape to realms beyond the night
    Dream can't you show me the light?

    I stand atop a spiral stair
    An oracle confronts me there
    He leads me on light years away
    Through astral nights, galactic days
    I see the works of gifted hands
    That grace this strange and wondrous land
    I see the hand of man arise
    With hungry mind and open eyes

    They left the planet long ago
    The elder race still learn and grow
    Their power grows with purpose strong
    To claim the home where they belong
    Home to tear the Temples down...
    Home to change!

    VI. Soliloquy

    ... "I have not left this cave for days now, it has become my last refuge in my total despair. I have only the music of the waterfall to comfort me now. I can no longer live under the control of the Federation, but there is no other place to go. My last hope is that with my death I may pass into the world of my dream, and know peace at last."

    The sleep is still in my eyes
    The dream is still in my head
    I heave a sigh and sadly smile
    And lie a while in bed
    I wish that it might come to pass
    Not fade like all my dreams...

    Just think of what my life might be
    In a world like I have seen!
    I don't think I can carry on
    Carry on this cold and empty life

    My spirits are low in the depths of despair
    My lifeblood...
    ...spills over...

    VII. The Grand Finale
    Attention all Planets of the Solar Federation
    Attention all Planets of the Solar Federation
    Attention all Planets of the Solar Federation
    We have assumed control.
    We have assumed control.
    We have assumed control.

    One of my fav albums when I was a teen.

    In a hundred years oil will be plentiful but un attainable as it has been outlawed. Technology for solar and wind power will be far superior, but with no government subsidies will be to expensive for anyone but politicians.

    The super healthy agrarian society will be totally torqued off because they are digging furrows with rock bladed shovels (the crazies have outlawed iron, steel and power provided by animals.

    The famines and warming/cooling will be proven as a hoax and there will be forestation so thick that farming will devolve to the point that all of the populous cities have to abandon their towers or starve. It will already be to late for freedom as de-evolution has been engineered to keep the populace subservient.



    More healthy? Really? Without modern conveniences? Find me a point in history where people lived longer or more comfortable than right now! I cannot believe I read that. Since some of you seem not to work outside you can romanticize it all you want, I like air conditioning and heat when I can get it. And I like my tractor!

    a cover for putting weapons & spy equipment up there to track everyone.

    People will still be crying that we are going to run out of oil soon, & a tank of gas will cost $200.00
    of course if you own a new $1,000,000.00 car that runs on air or sun power,
    there will be a $200.00 By-weekly Surcharge (hidden Tax) because the end of the world nuts will
    be claiming it's using up the suns rays, and causing the winds to disappear.

    Food will be as plentiful as it is now but expect a large can of generic coffee to run you $50.00
    and a Cup of coffee at the local restaurant $5.00
    Meat will be illegal, and sold in the underground, the world will be over run by free roaming cows, pigs,
    chickens etc and a T-Bone stake purchased in the underground will cost about $100.00 raw.
    you'll also need to go into the woods or a cellar hole to cook it up, & Be careful not to get caught,
    since open flames will be outlawed.
    and killing or eating animals will get you a life sentence. & at least one large state
    in each timezone will be a prison state.
    Prisoners will have to farm the land. & 50% of what they grow will be supplied Domestically to the population, the rest shipped to 3rd world countries free of charge

    there will be no trash, you will go outside twice a day stand in line for corn, carrots, & Lettuce
    & on sunday's they will add a Potato to your meal. any waste will be eaten by the free roaming animals.

    there will be allot of diseases, some new ones, and depending on what you get, you will be shipped to
    either Recouping stations, Or you will just disappear. but there will be no charge.

    Not much will change for the wealthy, but to be considered wealthy,
    you will need to prove a Billion dollar self worth to become Tax Exempt,
    and live in selected zones.

    & yes there will be a draft & we will be at war with Canada, & Mexico
    because we will need new people to control since allot of U.s. citizens will be escaping to these countries,
    for better & free Lives

    Scoop nails it.
    Apathy, short sightedness and a greedy instant gratification attitude is the problem here.

    Future generations will either cuss us, or history will not be taught at all and they will not know of our ignorance.

    Check out the new Popular Mechanics. Seems a group of folks have formed a company that has a hundred year goal of mining asteroids. Article is extremely interesting.

    I saw that but the article on the 2013 Shelby Mustang made me drool all over the mag and I had to get rid of it.
