Have you ever thought about what we take for granted? Or things that we might end up taking for granted in the future? Things that we have now, things we'll have then, things we had in the past that we couldn't even fathom in our current age.
For example, what if there was no electricity? What if Edison had never gone to all that trouble to invent the lightbulb, and all that? What if we weren't able to even conceptualize it? Would things be different? Would we have gone down an entirely new path in terms of energy transfer?
What if the Wright Brothers hadn't invented flight? What if the plane had never flown? Would we all still be using planes? Or something else?
What if there were no cars? No trucks? No bicycles? What if there were no wheels? Where would we be then? How would that change how we transport goods, people, services? Would it change how cities work? How the world works?
What if there were no guns? No bombs? No poison, weapons, or war? How would that change the way we fight war? Would we even be able to fight it? How would things change?
What if there were no languages? Would we all communicate in one language? Would we communicate at all? How? With what? Verbal? Gestures?
What if there were no religion? Nothing to believe in? What would people live for? Die for? Strive for?
What about politics, economics? What if politicians and money were non-existant?
What if you took away the world in it's entirety?
Would ther just be empty space? Nothingness? A void? Can you imagine that?
And if there was a beginnning, can you think of the why?
