Science and Technology Predictions

Hello Everybody:

Last month I promised that I’d give you more predictions in this month’s column. However, I have to tell you first that my number one prediction last month has been postponed by the government. They’ve decided to wait four months before implementing the conversion of analog to digital, high-definition transmission on our television sets. So, if you haven’t already, please read last month’s That Ain’t Nothin’ to catch up on my rants. Now, to add one more note to last month’s predictions: Denmark has released their top secret information on UFO sightings in that country.

So, as for my new predictions, let’s start with job opportunities for US citizens: the next wave of jobs will be found in the rebuilding of our infrastructure, especially in water systems and electrical transmission networks such as power lines and transmission stations. Keep in mind that the basic nationwide electrical system we employ today was built back in the 1920’s. So, it is definitely time for us to revamp the system!

I believe that between 2009 and 2012, America will make great strides in nano-technology research, creating remarkable advances in science and medicine. This research will generate an entirely new industrial base in the US. This will serve to help us come out of the economic depression we have created for ourselves.

New Lungs Anyone?
I think that in 2009 we will see a giant increase in the growing of “replacement organs”. The thought of this is both wondrous and sad, for me, at the same time. Yet, instead of being health conscious and spiritually disciplined, we will the push the development of replacement organs that have been grown in labs. We are what we eat, and what we are eating is killing us. We need to take a very close and honest look at the way our food gets to our table. The inhumane conditions of livestock farming must end. Many of these animals spend their lives in cages barely large enough for them to stand in, and other’s, such as those destined to be veal products, never get to feel their feet on the ground. Adding insult to injury, these animal are pumped full of hormones, anti-biotics and steroids to accelerate their growth. All of this goes from the animal and into our bodies after their slaughter. The anti-biotics found in the animal products is creating drug-resistant virus in humans that is costing us billions of dollars in healthcare each year. Very soon, we will draw a line in the sand when it comes to what we allow ourselves to put into our bodies as food.

That Ain't Good!
Lastly, I predict that the European Common Market will suffer dramatically in the next year. With many countries leaving or threatening to leave the Union, keep your eye on Ireland, Germany and even France. This will lead to a rise in the value of the dollar, worldwide. Despite this, there will be global civil unrest because of the collapsing economies elsewhere.

We must pay close attention, this year in particular, to the presence of active-duty military personnel at check points across the country. In fact, I predict, although it is illegal, we will see more and more policing being done by the military. This is all a very discreet way of easing us into living in “police states”. I think Americans have too many guns to allow this to happen, but that will not stop the government from trying!

The next five years will hold great wonderment for we, the human race. Yet, we must not forget we are a spiritual race as well. Please do not lose focus of this fact. The trying times ahead will offer us a rare opportunity to grow in compassion and kindness, if we allow it to do so.

With love and purpose,
