More than likely, the world would have already been through multiple nuclear wars, so I'm guessing society would consist of things like in Fallout(the game)...I don't see it any other way.

Significantly, but whether it is for better or worse, well only time will tell.

Doesn't really matter to me which society.


Then broadly speaking, society has not changed.

The full set of all pre-modern societies contain all of the same features as the subset of all modern ones. Humans are still all of the things we were before the start of the neolithic revolution. As tool using masters of the cognitive niche, we still solve all of our problems through cause and effect reasoning. As social animals, we continue to form communities based around family units and extend those communities through mutually beneficial, altruistic exchanges with non-family units.

We don't have to change, physically, or socially, only our technology needs to. Much as it was ten thousand years ago, when we first started large scale farming, it wasn't a change in humans, but merely the progression of technology in the area of agriculture. Today, it is the same, no verifiable change in humans, just the continued progression of various technologies. DNA testing has shown that our genetic profile remains identical to what it has been for over a hundred thousand years. Many scientists, such as Dr. Francis Collins, leader of the human genome project, think it might be as long as three hundred thousand years. This is not due to any magical quality among our species, but simple reintegration and remixing through the exchange of partners from one group to the next, preventing the emergence of any one group with substantive taxonomic differences. Indeed, the extreme mobility of our species has lead to it being one of the least genetically varied species on earth. It is said that any single chimpanzee is far more genetically distant from any chimp found in groups that comprise its next door neighbors - than any two humans from opposite sides of the globe.

Humanity still struggles under its own weight.
Since you mention technology, I have another thread worth making about it.

A false platitude. Civilization is thriving on every single measurable scale.

Some individuals may struggle, but humanity itself, which by definition implies the whole of mankind, is thriving.

Well stated, sir. It's good to see college and life experience have not been wasted honing your cognitive awareness of all matters great and lesser. -_^

Overall there is a large push towards unification

Well if we put in to consideration the environment, then in 1000 years we could be already extinct.

Nothing beyond our wildest imaginations! We all know how fast and much we progressed since the 1600 up until now, we progressed so fast that even all the time before that was compared to nothing. People said then that everything was invented, they were wrong, people say that today as well, but who knows right? We might be extinct? Conflict! Space invasion! We might be somewhere out on space on another planet which we call colony 1! We might be robots that use the network to communicate through subspace! We might still be here, not progressed that far, but it's all a matter of what we focus our minds on achieving, I say we will be really far by that time, but nobody knows -.-

Did OP just start the thread with the 4 letter sentence "explain in great detail"? That seems ironic. And which 1000 years are we talking about. 1013-> 2013? or 2013->3013? 1013-> now has been crazy. But mostly the largest changes are politics, The mapping out of the entire Earth, technology, the softening of the superstitious beliefs, and a sort of understood "equality" between mostly everyone. Of course you'll still see those who are ignorant and want to keep others ignorant too.

My hopes for 2013-> 3013 are for us to keep technology from becoming too overwhelming, for the colonization of human kind across the Galaxy, and for me to end up known for something, somehow.

People are so desperate to belong that they are still clinging to race, gender, economical class, nobility, nationality, culture, religion, sports teams, and idols, as if any of it matters. And part from that, the dumbest force on this planet is righteousness. So, it hasn't changed much, if at all.
