Default Looking Forward to Future?

What are looking forward to the most in the future?

What I'm talking about is basically new technologies you would like to see. Fuel that doesn't depend on oil or when you walk in your house you can just say TV on or CD play or lights on. You get my drift. I believe some of that technology is available now.

How about the possibility of artificial human livers or kidneys and so on that will extend people's lives.

Or the technology to live on the moon. Like building small indoor cities on the moon to help ease overcrowding on the earth or elaborate space stations.

Or the ability to transport people like they do on Star Trek. Beam me up Scotty!

Man this earth will be something else in 50 years if we haven't destroyed it by then.

I'm curious about the medical advances in the future. I'll be glad to be able to do my job without having to draw blood from people.

When apes are our masters?

I'd be interested to see how transportation evolves, as well as housing.

He'll be born in a few years in Riverside, Iowa. They hold a festival every year in his honor.

Gosh, Shatner looks so different now; he's old now, but doesn't look bad.

I'm looking forward to ubiquitous wireless Internet. And water/hydrogen-powered cars.

The physics of the future is going to be really interesting. It is going to shatter, if it hasn't already, the reality that we see with our senses.

They have already proven that there are 2 new dimensions and they have theories on parallel universes. For example, since time travel forward is possible through the laws of physics, they are supposedly close to a theory that would not make it a paradox to travel back in time, kill your father before he met your mother, but still exist.

Also, 'time traveling' is constantly happening. Einstein proved that time moves slower the closer you are to a huge mass like a planet. For example, a clock on the top of a water tower runs slower than one at the bottom of a water tower. Also, when you fly on a plane, because you are moving so fast, the electrons of your body move slower than the ones of the people who are on the earth. So, in essence, time travel is always happening, just to any kind of extreme that is even close to being noticeable.

From my understanding, all of this sets up for the future to create a concrete theory of parallel universes.

Of course time travel is possible. Remember when Superman did it to save Lois in the original flick?

They don't put anything in movies that isn't true.

Well, whenever time travel is actually possible, it will be time for me to go back to the 06 western conference semi finals and kick Raja Bell in the knee.

I love the idea of time travel. I would travel back to the time of Lincoln being assassinated and try and prevent it.

You've been to a Star Trek convention haven't you?
