Vorschau – Kleiner Auszug aus der Fotoausstellung:
We’ll be able to tackle all the other adventures in life as well.
July 2019: FFB – CM19 H K – Klack Klack – it’s done! We’ve just put on the new license plates on the car: a project that has kept us busy for the last 4 years. When we start the engine of our completely restored ’88 Volkswagen Vanagon Syncro Camper, a chapter in our life will close. A new chapter will start.
Will we be useless or will our existence still be important for the world and the society?
The world of the future, how will it look like? One major issue will definitely be the demand for clean and accessible mobility. People will be able to call an autonomous driving cab with their phones. Gas stations will be smart mobility hubs for electric or hydrogen powered cars, busses and large trucks. This will be necessary for our environment and our climate. It is a fact that the climate is going to change irreversibly, if we are not willing to change something in the way we live and behave. One main possibility to do something against it is changing our mobility behavior, e.g. using public transport or the different ways of driving as mentioned above.
I imagine we all would take some time out. Take time for people. Take time to stop. Take time to breathe.
While my groceries are being purchased and delivered automatically, I’m rechecking the contract with the kindergarten. They have just bought new robots that require additional privacy statements. My granddaughter is really excited to meet “Tubby”. It will measure and record her social intelligence and improve her weaknesses. I guess he will start by teaching her to express her emotions in well-behaved tones. Based on my barely audible sigh and my movement of laying aside the documents, the light has automatically adapted and music starts to play. Exactely the kind of music I need right now.
I’m aiming to find the right work-life balance.
When I think about “the future” there are different things coming to my mind. At first there is the question “Are we going to live the same way as we are today? Or did we as humanity eventually see the reason to protect our world instead of harvesting it to its extremes?”
