How far into the future do you imagine?

When you think about the future, what is the furthest into the future that you envision? – the next 50 years? – the next 100 years? – the next forever? What does it look like? What natural resources do we still have available to us? Let us know in the comments!

Need some inspiration? Well we also asked participants in our Skype Video Interview Series this same question, so check out their answers in videos HERE! And for an interesting project specifically focused on our perception of time, check out The Long Now Foundation‘s 10,000 year clock, which is engineered to keep time for the next 10,000 years…

    For my personal life, I still don’t honestly think much past five years in the future. But somehow I feel like I can also think like, a hundred years into the future, where the hope is that we’ll have harnessed all of these new technological advances to protect and/or supplement our natural resources so that we’ll still have kind of bastions of natural ecosystems that can function independently of active human protection or intervention. What’s weird is that the next fifty years are the mysterious ones to me… I suppose that’s the time when these changes would have to happen, and that process is much harder for me to picture!

  2. I am just looking for an answer on how the future is going to be because I have an assignment to make three stanzas on how I think the future is going to be.
