5G is now rolling out—to connect every conceivable device to the Internet. Worldwide. This means life will become automatic for a large lump of the population. Your car will drive you. Your fridge will order new food items when low. Your heat and air conditioning, no worries there because it is under their control as well. Your toaster will decide how brown the bread will be. Your whole home will run on prescribed algorithms, deciding how much energy you can use and when. You will become a spectator. Why would you care about what’s happening outside your bubble? As long as you have your stuff, all is well.
Of course, as you may enter a decline in health from technology necessary to implement this orchestration and as your home devices infiltrate on you and register your ‘symptoms’, there will be mandatory ‘doctors’ visits. Don’t worry, you won’t have to even leave your abode. The diagnosis will occur on your pixelated rectangle in your hand, and the tablets will arrive at your door. These drugs should make you have a more peaceful trance.
