THU 2019 - Desirable futures - '2060 : When manifestation became instant & public!'

_____________________________

Its 2060, and i know it looks far fetched for right now, but in 2045 the manifestation box was invented. Out of the very first manifestation box itself, we could produce another one, and so on ... and soon enough they were common. Materialism went out the door. Humans focused on the planet as a unified race. Becoming fossil fuel free was a HUGE DEAL! So no oil, no petrol, no gas, no coal etc. etc. This means massive changes in infrastructure, architecture, city planning etc. etc. So the jist is; the world in 2019, is as we knew it, then a seemingly ever-speeding apocalyptic trajectory up-to about 2045, finally gaining some form of Utopian structured stability by 2055. And voila! Now its 2060. 5 years into Utopian structure v1.0.

phytoplankton (algae) is farmed in the water banked out by walls of the city.These farms look full of swirly lighter blue/aqua colored sections of water. Manifestation cubes are in place, and one of them is even shown in action, creating the path this teenager is about to surf/hoverboard upon (top left). That hotel is about to arrive on the platform and peeps are about to jump off to them.  Mercedes has recently launched portable mercurial gyro schematics for everyone to create from the manifestation box (mini-UFO tech for your shoes!!!)

  1. That hotel is about to arrive on the platform and folks are about to jump off to them.  
  2. Manifestation boxes are essentially 3D printing technology combined with well perfected portable hadron colliders. These colliders only produce the higgs boson, 'the god particle' , or the particle that creates matter out of nothing, ready to be printed by these advanced portable 3D printers.
  3. Phytoplankton farm : Algae in the sea/ocean water reduces carbon content in the air.
  4. Our very own giant 'Crop circles' (if you must), not only do we farm phytoplankton, but we also create very controlled areas for Forrest growth (dark green patches) and agriculture/Crops (lemon yellow/green patches)
  5. Mercedes has recently launched portable mercurial gyro schematics for everyone to create from the manifestation box. You can see this kid downloading schematics for mercurial gryos invented by Mercedes, about to leap off! 
  6. Even though this kid has gyros for his shoes , he wants to play with the manifestation box in an old school hot wheels track and hover-board sort of way!
