It won’t be long before I get to join society as an imperative individual. Contributing my share of hardship, working through long nights and hastily rushing through a presentation to meet its deadline for the next day’s presentation.
Damn! That’d be hell!
Worry not, Myself, because in the future, there’ll be computer screens everywhere, not farther than any individual than 30 meters, which will be as powerful as the high-end consumer desktop computers of today and will have interfaces so interactive that we’ll probably be inputting instructions into it with our minds. Such technology advances could lead to a breakthrough! I mean one that could change the radical ways of our lives, and I don’t normally use the word, breakthrough, so take my words literally, definitely unlike what Apple has redundantly and so often abuse in their advertising videos to capture their prospective customers attention for their latest release: iPhone, iPad mini, iPad 3, iMac. Heck I don’t even think I bother about such new products anymore… Speaking of the future,..
This brings me on to another string of thoughts, The Expansion of Humanity into the Cosmos.
An astronaut gingerly stepped out of Apollo 11, and slowly places his feet on the moon, before another modern explorer came out. “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” proclaimed Armstrong. That’s his most popular words and probably one ever spoken in the modern era. Whatever Steve Job or Bill Gates have said, pales in comparison. Looking up, Armstrong said, “Beautiful, beautiful, magnificent desolation.” Armstrong and his friend were the only two souls on the moon.
*Back to Earth, and a few years later…
Jim Lovell, not untypically, remembered, “Everything that I ever knew—my life, my loved ones, the Navy—everything, the whole world, was behind my thumb.” This sentence hit me hard on the head like a brick. Indeed, we are living in the isolation of this round planet called Earth. We humans are the cause of global warming, and resources is becoming harder and harder to find. Researchers, Scientist or students with sterling results. Screw all that! SO LONG as the world decides Smartphone, to be the best innovation, it will not be long before we start hampering on cynical thoughts of eliminating each other (compare the thoughts of stress-free country men to the busy, fast walking urban dwellers, but at an extreme level.).
What are we waiting for! Worry not, Myself. Because by 2020, in the near future, under our clutching hands, SpaceX the space travel company will be up and fully operational in Singapore. THAT’S JUST WHAT WE NEED. See, this is going to bring on the awareness to the Earthlings that indeed, it would lead to a better tomorrow if we can all come together and contribute in ways like, slowing down our economy proportionally (or whatever), and have our governments place our taxes on planet migration instead. We are looking at Mars, because living on the Moon wouldn’t make that much sense considering it’s much smaller than Earth. Mars is what we need. Mars is where I want to live on.
