Alien "Salesmen"

Years ago, things such as giant cell phones and big digital watches weren’t even conceivable. Now cells have gone from something one had to carry in a shoulder bag to the size you can hold hidden in the palm of the hand. Even in Jules Verne’s stories, some things he wrote out of pure imagination, such as going to the moon, were things that people laughed about. They weren’t possible and barley imaginable.

Look where we are now. Consider the digital age, the advances in medicine, the high tech weaponry science and the governments are experimenting with.

What happened? Where did the huge jump in our technology come from? When mankind goes from using horse and buggy to model Ts and not long after that more advanced transportation, the knowledge for these things just didn’t drop out of the sky on us…or did it? Science is also a hair from putting the finishing touches on an invisibility cloak (check it out here). Perhaps we have alien "salesmen" among us? J

The medical field has made disconcerting leaps and bounds, too. Some of the medical advancements I’ve seen on television and magazines really boggles the mind, and many are not invasive anymore.

I hate putting on makeup; I find the process tedious. A cool daily tool from the future that I’d love to have is some sort of mask like what Lelu uses on The Fifth Element to do my makeup. If an alien came to you and offered to give you the knowledge and the tools for one sci-fi or futuristic advancement to better our daily lives—not a time machine or anything like that—what would it be?

  1. There are many cures for various cancers now, but the U.S. gov won't allow them to be used except only in research hospitals. It's sad to say but the reason is because there's too much money in pharmaceutics.

    But I was speaking of daily life stuff such as clothing, ways to travel to work, just general daily life things.

  2. A means of traveling long distances that doesn't involve using fossil fuels. I love driving but hate knowing I'm polluting the air while I do it. Maybe we could fly instead?

  3. I agree with both of the ideas above. My first thought was a time-turner like in Harry Potter.

  4. Hmmm, how about teleportation, Fiona?

    Time turner? I'm not super knowledgeable about HP, but is that the necklace that Armanni used?

  5. There are many theoritical means of great distance modes of travel - in reference to space. Ion Propulsion, Solar Winds both use methods other than our current solid based or chemical rocketry fuels. As for distances on Earth, were getting there with different means of propulsion for our personal cars. I think most people realize we'll have to use some form of fuel other than fosil fuels. We all know the money behind the oil companies are keeping many new ways of getting from point A to B off the market. Same as in Cancer Research, can you imagine the money that's tied up in research that wouldn't be need IF the government or the medical community did release the cure we all feel they have? Its mind bending. The toll it would take on employment alone is staggering - still it has to be wieghed against the lives that could and should be saved. The people who would be unemployed could be re-employed in the fields to actively save lives.
    Just a thought.
