I visited the future and saw how this era of colliding crises all plays out.
It’s funny how life can imitate art or a Star Trek episode called “The City on the Edge of Forever.” I was strolling the park early one morning and I came across a glowing stone archway. It talked with a deep voice, explaining that it was called the Guardian of Forever and that it was a doorway to any time. It asked if I would like an adventure in the past or future. I figured given the state of the world it might be interesting to see how things end up 100 years from now. I had important questions that needed answers.
Did world leaders unite to end climate change?
Did governments become problem-solving machines and end our many social ills?
Would togas be the fashion trend?
To make a very long complicated story a short one, here’s my report from the future. Earth exists. Humans are there. Things do work out but not how I expected them to. As you can imagine, if I say any more I was told that I could alter the current timeline with disastrous effects. Time travel has lots of rules.
What I can say is this. Everything we do, or don’t do, matters more than we can possibly imagine.
I can sum up my adventure in one question, as a way to inspire humanity to make the future the best it can be.
How do you look in a sarong?
*The future is what we make it. Join the evolution.
