Imagine What Could Happen If Our Smart World Went BANG!

The smart world as we know it is beautifully woven around the Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Everything is and actually sounds appealing and easy. We are so dependent on the digital DATA that 1s and 0s have become the Alfa and Omega of our very existence.

You miss a single STEP in the world of tech and you are definitely left behind.

The exponential advancements would make Leonardo Da Vinci quiver in his grave.

What If?

In retrospect though, don’t COLD chills run down your spine when you think about what could happen in-case something went totally wrong?

Imagine if all electrical power went BURST around the world! The world would definitely STOP. Period.

And so would everything else.

It is easy to forget that current advances in technology have only been with us for just over 50 years. Before that, (thousands of years for the religious, and millions of years for science believers,) the world was natural and REAL. Man breathed in fresh air and the world was green.

Fast Forward to the Smart World

The arrival of the MEGA computers in the middle of the last century, the arrival of the PC in the 1980s, and the arrival of the SMARTPHONE in 2007 all helped to shape the smart world of today and tomorrow.

It is now a world driven under the concept of the Internet of Things (IoT). The ubiquitous nature of tech devices has made this possible. We interact with our homes remotely via apps, we have built mega DATA centers which are mined by Intelligent BOTS, and communicate via voice assistants and speakers. We are soon becoming ROBOTS ourselves.

The world through tech

The smart world through tech

You probably use or will eventually use your smart gadget to do the following:

  • Find your way in the city. You don’t need to cram the directions anymore
  • Calculate every transaction, even if it is just 15 + 27!
  • Find out all about your favourite wine over the bar room table
  • Locate all your friends using Bot services  
  • Access your music files from the cloud
  • Talk to your light bulb

Smart Everything

Industrial smart systems too, have been around for some time and will only grow big. Most manufacturing establishments now opt for advanced ROBOTICS at the expense of humans.

What if Something Went Wrong?

The smart world is beautiful until it stops and everything goes BANG! Something always goes wrong! Everything we know about life can come CRASHING down!

Mother Nature has proved through the course of history that disasters will always contribute to changing human lifestyle.

If you are religious you are very much aware of the 7 TRUMPETS and how they will affect me and you.

If you are a believer of science, the extinction of the DINOSAUR should be a reminder that anything is possible.

Dinosaurs went extinct a million years ago
Dinosaurs went extinct because of
some extraterrestrial impact

Fast Forward to the Future

Some of the most likely events include mega SOLAR FLARES and storms, earthquakes and possible collision of the earth with other planetary objects, events that could change the world aforever.

In the event of such disasters, it is likely that

  • Electricity grid will go down for months.
  • Satellites may get fried.
  • Data bank centres may just crumble.
  • Major coastal cities will go under water.
  • Communication will stop! Just like that.

Then WHAT?

Possibly a blank world.

Or a return to INNOCENCE.

Possibly a world RESET.
