15 years into the 21st century and, apart from smart gadgets and smart TVs, in terms of high-concept tech, it even feels we’re going backwards. The Concorde, the supersonic airliner, was decommissioned in 2003. For the first time in transportation history, distances had become longer. Apollo 17 remains, to this day, the most recent manned flight beyond low Earth orbit. It’s been 40 years. That can’t be a good thing.
But what are the consequences?
The future should have brought … options. To us all. And with them, the chance at a different kind of life.
But that’s not even the most important aspect. We, as in Mankind, must work on our own future or some other civilization’s future might cross paths with ours, taking us by surprise. If history has taught us anything is that it has always ended tragically for the least advanced civilizations. Think Mayans, Aztecs, native Africans, native Americans …
But what can one man do to change the dangerous Status Quo of things?
Perhaps nothing. Perhaps everything!
Not unlike me and you, Vincent’s not happy with the fact that ‘the future’, as foreseen by classical sci-fi authors, never came to pass. So he’ll call upon himself the task of making it all happen and, in doing so, he will change everything.
Check Future Man Out.
