    Back in my day men and women weren't allowed to talk to one another. I'm old school so I still don't.

    Cookiegod is a smart cookie. As Kant would say, you can't know "can't" as a pure "Ding an sich," but only as a dirty epistemological "can't."

    Don't repeat the errors of the people back then, wondering about the future. Look to the past and you can actually answer much of it.

    1970: "In 50 years we will have flying cars!"
    2020: Not even the planes are flying

    It is quite remarkable how difficult it is to predict the future. Almost all future predictions have a assumed material and energy-based advances like the flying cars that you mention. And cybernetic limbs and ray guns and the like. Not wireless communications and information systems. It is almost as time-consuming to travel to the other side of the world and space is still mostly out of reach, but no one expected that the great future would mean playing games and sharing pictures of cats in real time with people sitting on the other side of the world. And rifles still use the same kind of ammo as they did more than 100 years ago. In many cases even fully compatible ammo.

    I genuinely think that we are no better to predict 2070 now than we were in 1970 predicting 2020.

    I can imagine poor Wilhelm on his horse on a modern highway, witnessing a phenomenal number of automobiles passing him.

    A haunting question is:
    What have the cats been up to in all this time?

    A genius question. That may very well be the big surprise that nobody saw coming.
