People have no idea of how fast the world is moving, they fail to take
the true value of technology in progress. And they are not interested.
As taught by the ‘Tomorrowland’ film, they are those who truly embrace
the idea of failure, the disasters that have left the generations of
human beings in the last centuries, those who almost enjoy the pessimism
and the reactivity of their own fatalistic ideologies . They couldn’t
care less about artificial intelligence projects, human life outside the
planet, bio-engineering and advances in robotic prostheses, etc.
Raymond Kurzweil, Hugh Herr, Elon Musk and many many others that I left
in the inkwell, are ‘The Optimists’, visionaries, those who future
generations will remember as 'oh, guys to which no one believed, those
who were criticized for their positivism and their vision of the
impossible possible ’.
It is not about creating an utopian society,
to put more windmills or actually saving the world. It is just the
chance of believing that you can.
It is not to ignore the negative things, it is doing something to fight them.
Read between the lines, people.
The movie is not a piece of art, but shouts certain distressing truths, those that many people hate to face.
Keep being and feeling useless, watching your future world being slowly
destroyed, all from your comfy chair. Some of us just need to pass the
message to feel like little heroes.
