What will the world be like 100 years from now? Look into the future in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:05 Explanations: 2:50 Fast dialog: 14:48 Robert: These designs are really futuristic-looking. Mara: I’m trying to be forward-thinking and imagine what the world will be like in 50 to 100 years. Robert: You think that the world will be filled with space-age gadgets like these? Mara: That’s the natural evolution of technology for the next 100 years, I think. We will continue to develop labor-saving devices, simpler ways of doing everyday tasks, and to improve artificial intelligence. Robert: I’m not sure I want to live in a world that looks like that. It seems so cold and impersonal. Mara: That’s only because most of us have a fear of the unknown. Robert: That’s me in a nutshell. I’d rather return to a simpler way of life with as little innovation and technology as possible. Mara: Like modern sanitation and transportation? Robert: Well, I want to go back in time with some things, but keep my conveniences. Mara: So you want to pick and choose? That shouldn’t be a problem when we figure out time travel.
