Hello /b/, I am from the year 2216. Denizens of 4Chan in 2015 asked me to go back a year and deliver a message to you.
"Dont troll groovebuns."
Whilst I'm here, ask me whatever you want.
Saving this thread with a screenshot. Will keep an eye out next year for Ol' Groovebuns. Thanks for the warning stranger.
What does the iPhone 7 look like, and is it made out of. Stronger material than the shitty 6+?
Communism hasn't been a recognized political philosophy for many years. When the North Koreans surrendered to the South and reuinification took place, a lot of the Communist parties around the world were pretty much forced out of office by the people,
Give us a lowdown on what happened to Ebola.
Also give us some OC from 2216
did they ever tell the truth about 9/11 and our reptilian overlords?
Ebola was essentially cured in 2019 through the mass production of the antiviral drug DRACO. HIV and many other viral diseases were rendered basically harmless. As far as the outbreak in 2014 (which is what I take it you are referring to), the disease never reached pandemic status and steadily declined.
I'm allowed to communicate like this because of little danger of screwing up the timeline. Lets face it, a lot of you think i'm just lying, which is why this is permitted. Added images taken from the future will only serve to prove my legitimacy... which is bad.
what the fuck are you talking about? If you don't try and prove that you're legit (Which you aren't) then there is literally no point of you being here, you might as well just kill yourself.
the current leader is.... Vladimir Putin. My records show he was severely undermined by his political opponents because of his policies in Europe. In 2080, Russia officially declared socialism and tried to conquer the eastern european bloc but was quickly defeated in the field. Russia has been a very well balanced democracy since then.
I'm pretty sure that Kim Jong Un was assassinated about a week or so ago in this timeline. The next one, according to historical conjecture, is the assassination of Pope Francis, due to his policies on homosexuality.
In fact, speaking to people like this has become quite common and acceptable. By becoming an anonymous figure and communicating with the past, we learn valuable insight from the people of the era. Let's face it, perception is hard to discern from biased media reports.
Theres an impressive technology that was created around this time called Solar Roadways. I'm not entirely sure at what level they are currently operating, but In my time they own essentially every rooftop on the planet. In...... 2020 they had to rebrand themselves because pathing every road with solar panels was considered unfeasible, so they moved to rooftops. They are a significant energy company in my time.
time travel is usually permitted with research purposes in mind. For tourism it's usually acceptable if there are trained representatives to tell people what not to do. Time travel works through a centralised core access facility. Basically, the governments own everything. The security systems in place are pretty much flawless... i'm actually being monitored by my professor right now. He keeps telling me to not put specific things in like dates etc.
Despite the obviousness of time travel being impossible, your predictions are very accurate and convincing.
>Kim Jong Un assassinated (obviously NK wouldn't announce it)
>some zealot murdering Pope Francis
>2014 Ebola outbreak being overhyped, dying die before reaching critical levels
well done OP
2/2 My purpose here is actually a historical sociology experiment for my university to discern the worries and interests of people from this time period by analysing the questions you actually ask.
It's strange thinking you guy's haven't even cracked Alcubierre transport yet. The world must be such a small place. After that the universe just blew open for humanity overnight... including time travel.
I had to look this one up as i'm unfamiliar with the term. Nearest I can tell from your internet it's an interactive entertainment device? In my time these are the only type of entertainment there is. Our brains have sense chips in them to protect us from damage to our eyesight/hearing etc. Our "video games" are wired directly into our brains as virtual reality.
My records don't give an exact amount, but roughly between the years of 2014 to 2027, 8% of all US citizens had heart attacks. From 2027 to 2040 it shows 11% and that drops significantly to 3% in 2040-2050. Best I can do I'm afraid, exact data is difficult to come by.
On that topic actually, a recent scientific inquiry has been looking at trying to regenerate this eras technology to "collect" data from this time period.
There's a group of astronoughts heading towards Alpha Centuri right now to check for viability of habitation. It's a journey which will take them 2 years. Does that answer your question?
Ah good to hear. I'm currently overweight and practicing bad habits on purpose to see if I can induce a heart attack within my lifetime. If it happens Science wins. If not, God wins.
The presence of God, in my time is considered a scientific acceptance because of the lack of evidence against it. There are very few religious people in my time, but this has kind of stuck around (its not given much attention though).
You're internet shows this as a reference to sexual orientation? In my time there is no defined expected preference either way. Sure reproduction is still limited to male-female, but our social systems don't prohibit any kind of relationship.
If time travel is allowed by a higher being god, aliens etc then there is no god or higher being. We are doomed. What will people believe in your time for faith? No religion. . I call fake
Due to the time dilation formula, Alcubierre warp drive transport should only be able to move people into the future, not back in time. How did people in your time manage to get around this? What was wrong with 2014's theories?
Im not sure how things work in 2014, but in 2216 science isn't based on belief and accusation, it's based on evidence. If there is a theory and it cannot be disproved then it is clearly scientifically sound.
Think of time like a circle. travelling faster than light lets us travel backwards through time. Continuing back and we reach our time period by simply going in a loop. There is no "moving forwards" through time.
.. that makes no sense. Theoretically, you could take one of us 2014 people back with you, meaning that we would be "moving forwards" through time... what would prevent you from doing the same in your time?
Like i said in a previous post, the Fermi paradox is quite upsetting. We've started exploring space and found nothing to prove that we are not alone in the void. It has turned us into a pretty lonely race.
Other than that, we're still recovering from deep sea plastic pollution and our marine life is slowly improving. One of our most pressing concerns is the renewal of the environment. Scientists looking for ways to scrub significant amounts of dangerous chemicals from the air.
Socially, I guess overpopulation. I've been looking at your homes and my first reaction is "wow they must be rich". Overcrowding has made living space in 2216 pretty hard to come by.
Theres a block on incoming travel from anything before the date of departure. Think of it like a password of the day kind of thing. They won't let me land without the right "passcode" and this passcode is changed all of the time. Anything before the invention of time travel is permitted as long as we don't do anything stupid.
Africa is actually a bustling economic tax haven. Overcrowding has forced people to expand out into previously uninhabitable territory (similar to how your Las Vegas is set up).
Im not entirely sure I understand your second question.
So your own personal timeline just stops while you are here and picks right back up when you return? Or do you miss whatever time (days, hours, minutes) you were gone for, and you actually return to your original departure time+expidition time?
Assuming you're truthful, another question. Is there truth in the idea that the proliferation of phones, tablets, the internet, and information is killing off humans' ability to interact with each other on a more personal basis.
I had to look this one up on your internet. If I were to make a comparison I'd say politics in 2216 is more left wing pretty much everywhere. Humanity definitely cleaned up its act in the last century.
But that theory also must have empirical evidence, of which there major world religions have none. Accepting something as FACT simply because there are no way's to "disprove it's existence" is fucking stupid, and frankly, you might be stupid too OP. just a thought
I leave and return at precisely the same date and time as when I left. I could be here for months and not miss a thing when I head back home.
I remember reading about this in one of my historicial sociology classes. Bringing Virtual Reality to the market was probably the thing that stood out in lectures. It wasn't until cybernetic implants were approved that things kind of turned around. Most things in 2216 are esentially augmented reality. I'm checking up facts on my timelines wikipedia using it.
Time travel and time looping not so much a law of nature as it is the practical utilisation of infinite Reality repetition. The arrow of time still applies in every sense of the word... it just happens to continue and continue.
False! That is against the laws of physics. You said you had a professior talking to you but you return at the exact same time as when you left then you have created a static event that will destroy your machine.
Human lifespan has peaked out at 140. Average life expectancy is like 120-ish.
There are a bunch of bacterial strains that have become resistant to antibacterial drugs in my time. Danger from Aureus is pretty common in physical industries I guess.
Its interesting that most of the questions here are representative of questions about political leaders and national futures.
Records show a Robbie Wells being elected in 2016.
Sports are actually pretty similar to this eras. I've actually been rooting for my soccer team (Nottingham Forest) in the past. Its very strange. Ive seen references to a "Cricket" and "Baseball" but we don;t have these in my time.
I'm sat at a terminal in the time capsule.
I've already explained that renditions of myself ot the future are unacceptable by basically all time travelling academia. I'll ask my professor.
Like I said earlier, its for a university class. I'm studying you.
>I wish I could interface with your technology though...would make doing this much easier.
Even in the future we're lazy...
>Records show a Robbie Wells being elected in 2016.
I swear if that happens... I don't know. That's gonna be weird.
What would you say some of the most important questions to ask would be for an average person living in America currently be, and what would the answers be?
My purpose here is to understand the fears, questions, worries and concerns a person living in this time experiences. This time is fairly important in the evolution of our species, its when we first started truly connecting together as a whole.
What would you say the best advice you could give the average person living in America currently would be? Given your knowledge or at least accessible record of history beyond the current.
Also, I assume you have a thesis? Might I ask what it is?
