The world 100 years from now
A hundred years form now we would be living underwater in a city like Atlantis. The 2 main factors which would have contributed to this situation would be the raising temperatures I.E global warming and UV radiation. Because of this enormous change in lifestyle which had to take place, many other scientific projects would be suspended, like the space program for example. Most our scientific efforts would be directed towards the improvement of human life underwater. Some people in America, Europe and Japan predominantly chosen because of their wealth, scientific ability and uniqueness would be the only persons allowed to live in this Atlantis, as it would not be spacious enough to accommodate everyone. The remaining 4 billion people would eventually perish. The main source of oxygen for this Atlantis would be the algae, and the predominant source of food would be fish. Most of the power would com from nuclear reactors.
There would be no countries, as the U.S would be the only country which would have the economic and scientific resources to build this Atlantis, as I mentioned before there would be this lapse in technological advancement for a certain period of time as we adapt ourselves to underwater life, more over the trauma created by technology I.e. the destruction of our lifestyle on the land would make people cautious in perusing certain technological routes. Education would be the first priority of this society. Religion Ceremonies/ ethics would gradually be killed leading to small pockets of tyranny. When there are no ceremonies to transform you, to say to you that you have to change, you get stranded, for example if there were no ceremonies for adolescence, you are stranded in life and instead of converting yourself into a responsible adult you do drugs.
Cloning would be an option for parents, and many parents would adopt this way of having children creating genetically perfect children, but this method would be costly and some people would like to have their children in the natural way, this would lead to immense differences between the cloned and naturally born humans. Because many people cloned rich/famous people without their knowledge by obtaining their DNA from many sources like garbage (tissue paper) and then later claimed their property the constitution would me amended to deny this right of inheritance. Pathogens would become more and more resistant to medicines.
Robots would be heavily regulated predominantly because of the trauma which I mentioned of before. Robots during this time, because of the lapse in technological advancement would not be as complex as we would have imagined, but complex enough to be highly regulated by the government. They would put self destruct codes within the robot’s program. Other than this I believe this Atlantis would be more of less similar to the ways of life in the U.S with little improvements in every imaginable field.
