This is the pessimistic view, there is tons of optimism, but one pessimistic prediction will not hurt.


  • There is covid, it ages the population faster (internal damages similar to aging) we don't know by how much yet, regardless of now, it will mutate until it perfects it, so lifespan will go down to 50? 60? in the next 20 years or so.
  • People want the CO2 issue fixed, so we will have less from everything, cars, energy, homes, food, clothing, etc.
  • Viruses and Bacteria got suppressed by a 100 years, there are so much chemicals we can mix until they evolve to go around them, so sickness will be more common.
  • On the good side will perfect automation of making every day products.

AI requires analog hardware, the digital hardware reached its limits, this is why self driving cars are still not able to self drive, it needs a massive processing power that digital hardware can never provide.

The only analog processor in existence is brain neurons so far.

Currently, beside some carefully crafted chat and carefully crafter image generation, AI is stuck, it is stuck for the last 5 to 10 years.
