well, technology-wise, it's self-explanatory... we no longer use horses as a transport, we don't need to go on ships to travel to the other side of the world, space exploration etc

culturally, i think we have more equality nowadays. nations don't go to war for "fun" or for territorial conquering anymore, or at least they aren't able to do it directly since we have the United Nations nowadays. Rome was ahead of its time though in terms of politics like democracy and whatnot, i don't know too much about it to go into further detail.

I'm guessing you mean collectively?
I ask because I just found out two of my favorite celebrities have come out as lesbians and a lot of people don't seem to care, and yet last night, a lesbian I was talking to told me she'd gotten her head split open by some trained fighter who jumped her just for being gay. She, however, lives in a small town.

I'm sorry to hear about that.

Thank you. I'm sure she'd really appreciate it. She's just sick of it is all, because she feels like she's done nothing wrong, and she doesn't understand why people are attacking her for what SHE FEELS is no good reason. Unfortunately, there are still members of society who refuse to accept other people's differences if they can't explain those differences to themselves. But collectively, I feel we are strongly advancing.

I'm sorry but as long as there is opposition, and that opposition cannot be won over, we have no right to tell others they are wrong or right.

Realistically, there's pretty much no way to even have an educated guess at such a far off time-frame...but even imaginatively it's still pretty difficult to say.

Thing is that we as humans might be done evolving, because as soon as a species becomes self-reliant in a sense that they can prevent the death of their own young and themselves from natural causes that would kill any basic instinctual species there's pretty much no further room to go. Since we treat our own ailments, our bodies have no reason to adapt further. There's some pretty good articles/thesis on this subject if you google.

In contrast, the rate of technology advancement is going ~4x as quickly as it was 20-30 years ago.

Based on this, I'd say it's a pretty logical (although grim) assertion that humans may ultimately be the ones to kill themselves off out of a battle for technological power in some regard, whether it be space, weapons of mass destruction, politics, or anything else. In the end, the sun is going to explode everyone in to extinction anyway if we're not off the planet in any sensibly massive form by then (getting 6-7 billion humans in to space, easier said than done like in the movies).

You're welcome. In some ways, there just some things in society that will unfortunately remain the same. Luckily we're working on a few changes in other areas. Humans are either exhausting, annoying, interesting, and strange creatures that still aren't sure what to do with themselves. There will always be those ignorant people that refuse to accept change and difference. She can't help but be who she is and nobody should hurt her because of it. Seriously, let people live their lives without having to worry about getting hurt by idiots. At least there are caring/understanding people who have a brain and uses it.

1000 years?

well the world is now filled with machines.
Computers,cellphones and other gadgets were extinct because they use Accel World technology (Everything is touch screen).
Forest is gonna die soon (they got machines to use artificial oxygen), the desert is shrinking, both north and south pole is covered by artificial ice to prevent global warming, books is now a machine too, animals will be extinct sooner or later, flying cars everywhere,
Planes can go to outer space, Space Colonies near on mars, Humans use giant robots to rebuild a new <insert random object here>
Government is the ruler of the universe, Religion is declining, there are 150,000 humans lived on mars, Aliens will no longer harm the human race.

thats what inside my mind.

Over the past 1000 years the world has really advanced (mostly in the past 100 years) in many areas. We have advanced with freedoms we have never had before like the rights gained from the time of Women's Suffrage, Slavery, etc. We have advanced with our technologies with computer systems; which have brought the world together as a whole in my opinion. We can connect to other over social medias in real time over the network and as Zeta-Nu said, EXPLORE SPACE! I like to call these times of technical advancements as the "Information Age". Past 100 years has really been amazing as we have tons of daily needs now that weren't even a invented that long ago.

This probably isn't worded well but, it's almost 12 am! This is what I could think about for now; can't wait to see what others have to say!

Well, nations and governments have sprung up, split, or dissolved (for better or worse). Also, many western nations seem far more concerned with cooperation and diplomacy rather than with fighting (amongst themselves at least). Monarchies have tended to fall out of favor in place of parliaments and congresses (though many countries still love monarchs as figure heads).

Technology has allowed for near instant communication and exchange of information. It's also allowed for far more rapid transit, expansion, and industrialization. Space has opened up as an explorable realm. Technology has also revolutionized entertainment and made it more consumer conscious.

All of the sciences have advanced and "new" fields have been formally recognized such as psychology. Physics underwent a revolution with the advent of quantum theory, which in turn revolutionized chemistry, biology, and just about every other field. Math has advanced pretty far too. Hard to believe that calculus didn't even exist as we know it a thousand years ago. Medicine has rapidly advanced - extending our lifespans by a couple years (perhaps decades).

Art and music have become more experimental and daring at the sacrifice of formality and tradition (generally speaking, though not as a whole). Entirely new mediums of entertainment have opened up (such as radio, cinema, television, and video games).

Culturally (in the west) people seem to be more egalitarian socially and philosophically (generally speaking). It seems that institutionalized religion has less of an influence in people's daily lives. And people tend to be more open to "new ideas and experiences" rather than established tradition and orthodoxy. Sexuality is more open and and talked about than it once was (or at least, it's talked about more casually). Life in industrialized nations has also become more fast paced.

Those are just some things i've noticed. I'm no historian though, so take it with a grain of salt. I would say that we've advanced pretty far in a thousand years, yet we're still the same old humans - killing each other for no good reason and arguing over pointless trivialities. I'm of a mind to think that we'll never change, despite how much it seems like we have on the outside.

You can't get a woman to make you sandwich without attitude.
