Would the elderly in the 1980s have been able to see the 21st century?
How did they imagine the future 20 years ahead?
I have created an imaginary image based on the phrase “A vision of Tokyo in the 21st century, imagined by an elderly person in the 1980s.”.
In the 1980s, the elderly may have had varying levels of understanding and awareness about technological advancements and societal changes that were unfolding.
Some may have been optimistic about the future and imagined a world where technology has revolutionized the way we live and work.
Others may have been more skeptical and felt that progress came at a cost, such as job loss and a decline in human interaction.
As for whether they would have been able to see the 21st century, it depends on their age and health at the time.
Those who were in their 70s or older in the 1980s may not have lived to see the turn of the century, while those who were younger may have had a better chance of experiencing the beginning of the new millennium.
Regardless of their age, it’s likely that they could not have predicted all of the changes and advancements that have taken place over the past few decades.
The time is 2023, and we have entered a far more advanced era than what is depicted in this image.
