6 Life-as-we-know-it Things that Likely Won’t Be Around in 25 Years
A paradigm shift is underway
- Physical money (paper, coins and cards). Cryptocurrency has already ushered in the cashless society.
- Real music artists playing real music. We are seeing less and less of people playing instruments and more songs that use prefabricated canned beats put together with computers.
- Cashiers at stores. AI and other technology will replace workers manually checking people out with purchases.
- Bees? OMG. This is a scary one. If the bees no longer exist, neither will fruits, vegetables, flowers or honey. Let’s pray this is not the case.
- Four distinct seasons. We are already seeing this happening. Many times we can hardly tell when one season ends and the other begins. Climate change can spark off disaster, if it is too drastic too fast.
- Spinal cord injury paralysis. Groundbreaking research studies are making great progress in this area, particularly with the University of Louisville and the University of Kentucky pioneering significant aspects of this initiative, in conjunction with the Christopher Reeves Foundation.
Do you agree? What things can you think of that have a good chance of not being around in another quarter of a century?
