My interest is in the future because I’m going to spend the rest of my life there. So, what is expecting me and I hope you too, what is expecting of humanity on the way of technological progress in the nearest future, for for instance in 2019? I have found some curious prognoses by the subject, but this is the theme and variations, isn’t it? However, it’s not so long time to wait to make sure.

Ecclesiastes:

For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
