    Default Future like the Jetsons? Or something else....

    Years ago, I thought that living like the Jetson would have been so cool. It was so different from the way things were on our world. Just think, technologies to do everything for us.... We wouldn't have to lift a finger-- much.

    Yep, the Jetsons' world as our own would be something else.....
    The way I see it, it wouldn't be long when we'd have a world like Wall-E, a cartoon where the whole human population lived in chairs that went everywhere. Everything was done for them, too. Everyone of them were so obese....And an AI controlled them....

    I'm still at the point where I don't mind getting up to turn a switch on or off. Pick up my own phone. Answer my own door or lock it myself. Pay bills in person, drive myself to the store in my own car....Interact with ppl instead of on a cell phone and on social media, dress myself, etc....

    Using technologies should make our lives easier, but not at the risk of turning us into useless beings. We're not telepathic anymore because we have phones. We're supposed to have free access to all the information in the Universe, but now we have books and the internet. We don't teleport anymore because we have cars, etc.... We don't heal very well because we have doctors, hospitals and big pharma. And we certainly don't know the Truth because we're so badly deceived. Every technology takes us away from what we really are. Divine sovereign beings with unlimited abilities and skills....


    Here's a youtube video that I hope you like. She makes good sense about what is being rolled out for us....

    Last week we bought a second hand robo vacuum. We named her Rosie after the robot maid in the Jetsons. I have to admit....I adore her! She reallly makes a difference in terms of the housework. But even though she is just a box that navigates the floors, the fact that she speaks makes us personify her. We joke about how she might try to escape if we forced her into our son's room.

    This is pretty funny

    I watched The Jetsons as a kid and thought it would be so awesome to fly-drive everywhere! I believed it was going to be possible someday, too.
    With the nature of high tech today and the nefarious hidden controls I no longer see The Jetsons happening but more 1984 scenarios instead. I still do dream of a better future with the bells and whistles for us.

    Awesome share and post, Maia Gabrial! It is no wonder that it crosses a number of our minds the direction this 'thing' has been going from the beginning and continues to be groomed for a particular purpose. It can give a person the Willies just thinking about it.

    In another way it feels like experiencing sci-fi in real time. The one good thing. I've noticed, is having it so up front and personal it open the opportunity to also pull back the 'curtain' vs. just sitting back in the audience.



    Although that pulling back part can take courage, determination and especially in the beginning...some balance.

    Well, some mornings I do admit to wishing that the Jetson "people washer" conveyor belt thing had manifested. The grooming ritual for body maintenance is rapidly becoming so darn tedious with age!
