Imagine if Someone Was Teleported from 200 Years Ago into the Present from 1824 Sydney

Essay by Luke Foster

“Of course, technology is not an exogenous force over which humans have no control. We are not constrained by a binary choice between acceptance and rejection. Rather, the decisions we make every day as citizens, consumers, and investors guide technological progress.”

 Klaus Schwab

I can’t imagine for someone to be teleported from Sydney in 1824 to the present and how confusing and overwhelming it would be. Now there are buses, cars, trucks, the internet, computers, mobile phones, helicopters and planes as well as great leaps and strides in medical technology. Also of course internationally there has been man landing on the moon and a vehicle on mars and voyager probes exploring the solar system.

However, with all situations there is pros and cons and the main problem that has come about in the past 200 years is the destruction of the natural environment.

“Human beings are not alone in this world, but the inelegant silhouette that captures humankind’s two-thumbed approach to solving the inherent challenges in eking out a daily existence is certainly the product of human being’s clumsily wielded palette knife constantly exacting a steep price upon both nature and humanity.” 

― Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

The life expectancy has also changed. During, 1881-1890, the average life expectancy of a newborn boy was 47.2 years and that of a newborn girl 50.8 years.

“The life expectancy for Australia in 2023 was 83.94 years, a 0.18% increase from 2022. The life expectancy for Australia in 2022 was 83.79 years, a 0.18% increase from 2021. The life expectancy for Australia in 2021 was 83.64 years, a 0.18% increase from 2020.”

In conclusion we live much longer with a better quality of life but the main problem facing humanity is the destruction of the environment. I can’t imagine how many technological changes there shall be in the next 200 years but it’s an imperative that we figure out how to stop destroying the environment as if we don’t this beautiful blue earth wont be able to support the growing global population. The current global population is 8.1 billion.

“Bonus Fact: The latest UN Projections indicate that world population will reach 10 billion mark in the year 2056. Based on the all the above information, as I have already quote in between the facts, that after 200 years, Earth’s population would touch 15 billion (Estimate).” Google People also Ask
