… cities would look like.

"Adapt or die.

It's a law that has governed life ever since it first sprang up on the face of the Earth. In many ways, we have managed to make ourselves exempt from it. We've out-hunted our predators. We're no longer at the mercy of seasons for food. We can steel our bodies against disease and fix the parts that break down with time or injury.

The dramatic changes we're ushering in on the planet, however, are a stark reminder that our fate is still weaved very deeply into that of the Earth. Environmental crises developing over the last decades show that working against nature, trying to twist it in our image, is a recipe for disaster. Our best bet, then, is to become an integral part of natural systems rather than replacing them with artificial ones…."

Amazing. "Cities" without common areas or transport systems--not so much as a footpath (Greenville) monumental structures which have stood a thousand years covered with vegetation which will rapidly destroy them (London) and photovoltaic cells which bounce back light instead of absorbing it (Istanbul.) The 22nd Century will indeed be an age of miracles.

But someone might want to apply a little science next time.

It all looks so good until the Morlocks sound the siren and we all flee to the shelters.

Hopefully, we get the "All Clear" before it's our turn to go below……

Yes, but getting to the shelters will be difficult, because there are no roads, walks, paths, or whatever…unless we have teleporters?

Yup…I'm the troglodyte living on the backside of that mountain, there, burning wood in my fireplace.

Nope. All transportation/delivery is by drones. It's only coincidence that they look like flying monkeys (you can even get flying drones that resemble The Monkees… ;-)
