It's unlikely that we have any idea where we'll be in the next 10, 20, 50, and 100 years.
Look at what has changed in the past century.
- In 2007, smartphones weren't a thing yet.
- Forty years ago, the Internet as we know it was first invented.
- In 1969, DNA was discovered and the USA landed humans on the moon.
- A century ago, antibiotics were discovered.
Who knows where we'll be in another decade. Or century.

The Past and The Future
The world has changed so much within the last century. A hundred years ago, we couldn't have even fathomed where we are today. A hundred years from now, the same statement will probably still hold true.
