What do you think of when someone says “the future”.
There are countless novels about dystopian and utopian societies depicting a world that is much worse or much better than today.
Are you one to think of the future in a positive way and with hope (bottom left) or are you a bit more pessimistic about the future (as the top right picture suggests). Is it going to be a time when humanity increases in knowledge and the world becomes a happier place or a time like the dark ages when humanity wasn’t living in the best conditions?
In a book I have been reading called The Scorch Trials by James Dashner a group of kids are from a dystopian society where a disease called “The Flare” has wiped out most of the Earth’s population. All of the governments of the world have put their resources together to form a group called WICKED (World In Catastrophe Killzone Experiment Department) to find a cure to this devastating illness. Sun flares have also made most of the planet a dry empty space with few inhabitants.
I am curious as to what others’ opinions are of the future and how it will most likely look like.
