Guest Post: My How We Have Changed

This is a guest post from Ray, one of my loyal readers who wanted the chance to communicate a few of his thoughts! This post was very thought provoking …
Have you ever thought about all the changes our society has undergone in the last 100 years or so? There have been vast changes in what we use and how we communicate, what we eat and what we wear, how we move and how we handle our health, how we entertain ourselves, how we work, and how we view our world. There are so many words in common use today associated with these changes that a person from 1909 just wouldn’t understand most of what we’re talking about.
With all the changes we’ve undergone in the last 100 years, is there anything someone could have done in 1909 to alter the direction science and society has taken? Aren’t we in that position right now, with regard to 2109? In 1909 no one could have comprehended the changes we’ve experienced and no one alive today has a clue what life will be like in 2109. Back when I was a kid, the year 2000 seemed so far away. Everyone thought we would all be driving hovercraft and wearing plastic clothes!
The world has changed incredibly in 100 years. It will change vastly more in the next hundred. In 1909 the most common form of transportation was a horse and buggy. There were no airplanes and virtually no cars. Does anyone really believe that 100 years from now we will still be burning fossil fuels and driving around in cars and airplanes? It’s a little preposterous to think so and it won’t be because we’ve run out of fuel; it will be because technology advanced past the need for it.
Who knows what new terms and items people will be using in 2109?
