previous thread >>22996532the 2020s is coming. many people in the late '00s made predictions about the '10s that were based on clairvoyance or attempted remote viewing through the 4th dimension, to see what was coming.there are accounts of people describing things such as The Trump Era & the rise of cultural Marxism in the west, Fortnite, Benghazi, and trap music, as far back as 2008 and 2009.We will attempt to predict the 2020s in 2019. This thread will be archived and checked frequently across the years 2020 to 2029.It is very obvious that automation is a huge and looming topic in the '20s. This is not a premonition, but one that is going to start appearing in the psyches of many across the world. Be warned.

previous predictions:>the rise of automation>controlled AGI>the U.S. goes to war with Iran>breakthroughs in quantum physics and computing; disclosure of other dimensions/realities>transhumanism and augmented biology>major outbreak of disease, likely biochemical warfare>increased space exploration and knowledge>God unveils his existence in 2023>Earthquake rocks west coast of U.S.>Total disarmament of Western civilizations>Forced globalism; one-state government with open air prison conditions>Social Credit Index>NAU (North American Union)>complete sexual degeneracy continues>forced ideology of the 2020s enters school systems, propaganda, etc.>China will colonize East Africa and Central Asia>Trump reelected>Greater income inequality and disparity in the United Statesnot a bad first thread. let's go farther this time, /x/
Specific questions to pose to /x/:- What will happen to music in the 2020s?- What will happen on the geopolitical stage in the 2020s?- What will the major controversies be in the news this decade? Which ones carry over from the 2010s and which are brand new?- Is there a major disaster? What kind? (i.e. human-controlled, natural disaster, cosmic, leak disclosure)
International jewry will be destroyed but before that they will try their hardest to take down western civilization and the European race.The United States will be flooded with shitskins, leading states like california and nevada to become completely separate countries in essence, and then eventually for real.Augmented reality will replace smartphones and desktops as the new personal computing platform.Virtual reality will begin to reach maturity, the metaverse will be the new web for autists and societal rejects.With the decline in social norms during the 2010s coupled with the metaverse, degeneracy and leftist will reach its ultimate peak and lead to parallel societies.Automation and robotics will come about, they won't be as big of a disruption during the 2020s but come the 2030s they will be in full swing.The jews and their shitskin golem will attempt a communist coup in the united states, hoping to put things into place to usher in Agenda 2030.The real Americans (white people) and conservatives will start forming their own exclusive communities (micro ethnostates) starting with farming communities and eventually forming small cities and towns.israel will implode along with international jewry, the kikes will probably take over russia.In the late 2020s there will start to be heavy space-based warfare between the jews/china and the United States and its allies.
>>22999574i appreciate the /pol/ flair to this. interesting that you predict the downfall of jewry while still seeing the shitskin plot as irreversible. scary
>>22999558Music isn't some monolithic entity, you're thinking about pop music/the "industry".Pop music is going to die out as more and more people embrace making their own music or listening to independent musicians.
>>22999580actually I meant more in terms of musical innovation. consider how the '70s was basically a giant attempt from every walk of life to "be the next Beatles" in the wake of their breaking up. instead of there ever being another Beatles, a litany of new genres came out in that decade. will such creative explosion occur in the 2020s, or dwindle away?
>>22999577Well unfortunately we can't just go out and kill them or force them out.The only possible option to curb the shitskin population is to hope that once automation and perhaps a basic income type system come into place around the world they'll want to move somewhere else.If we are to take back those areas (the west and south west) we're going to need to repopulate and take control of the state and local governments, ensuring communist policies are never implemented.Once the shitskins are outnumbered they'll feel unwelcome and most will leave for another state or country.
>>22999587There will never be a time like the 70s to 90s again because music is no longer controlled by a handful of record labels and the media industry.It's completely decentralized now, with services like bandcamp and youtube giving anyone a platform.What will happen in the 2020s is already happening right now.The only major difference I could see that the 2020s could bring to music is virtual reality based concerts and music videos.By the late 2020s and 2030s artificial intelligence will be at the point where people can download a program and have it create music for them rather than having to learn music theory and create everything themselves.
2020 - Global antitrust crisis, Following the publicized death of Julian Assange, a switch activates revealing that the goal of a one-world government will be achieved through the abolition of antitrust laws
>>22999611Were the major record labels responsible for those innovations though? It seems that many new genres and styles have still evolved in the 2010s despite the Bandcamp/YouTube/Spotify culture we have now. Music has stagnated a little bit, but that's mainly because almost nothing new is happening anymore like it used to.
>>22999512Why do so many people WANT Trump to destroy America?
>>22999621Most of the genres and cultural movements were created by intelligence agencies and secret societies.I think in the 2020s what will happen is the decline of pop culture and the rise of online societies through virtual reality, although faceberg or some other major company might come along and try to prevent that from happening by creating a metaverse they control and guide.What I would like to see happen is for the end of control the corporations and governments have over the population and for people to embrace independent services and create their own unique societies.In the metaverse through these unique and individual societies there will come to be new forms of art and music they will create for themselves.Think of it like this, today there exists VRChat and AltspaceVR, now imagine something like VRchat existing on the scale of imageboards, where each virtual world would have its own unique culture and userbase like 4chan has with the individual boards.You'll have the pretentious insufferable crowd of /mu/ that will flock to their gated community, then you'll have the "EDM" crowd that will have theirs, but where the real innovation will come from is the communities built by tight-knit groups of people who form their own culture and lifestyle in the metaverse, from that you will see unique styles of music created from the bonding and socialization of these individuals.How you'll come to know of their music remains to be seen.Streaming and music playing programs will likely exist and be used for augmented reality, but in virtual reality it's another story ...How will these VR musicians distribute their albums ...
>>22999632I think it's part of the NWO's agenda to keep humanity earthbound
>>22999512Op will suck the cum out of his own ass as he fucks himself. Op will unite anus penis and face
>>22999625Ego. If you've spent years warning people about Trump, saying he represents a unique threat to America, then it's embarrassing if he just turns out to be a typical Republican with a twitter shitposting account.It's psychologically rewarding to get that "I told you so!" moment. And it justifies the sunk costs of fretting about the guy all the time.Anyway, I'm supposed to make a prediction:>mid 2020s: text generation is good enough to reliably pass the Turing test>audio and visual generation is pretty good too>marketers use armies of bots to shill their products>almost indistinguishable from actual users>controversy across social media when high-profile users revealed as literal corporate botsAlso related:>AIs starting to get realistic>It's fringe, but waifu marriage is becoming an actual political issue
>The US and Iran never actually go to war outright. The US will pressure them behind the scenes until an ‘agreement’ is met. People forget about it after a few months.> Various big media/tech companies start to push their own exclusive VR headsets and environments in a big landgrab once VR is much more affordable and accessible. This will be similar to what we’re seeing with TV/movie streaming sites now. It will common for consumers to own multiple headsets for different platforms paid via subscription.> Civil unrest increases dangerously in Mexico and South America.> The Minnesota Vikings win a Super Bowl.> Another large-scale tragedy/attack happens on US soil, sparking a sudden change in everyday American life, similar to post-9/11.> Hong Kong falls. :(> Civil unrest in China/China’s puppet states> Russia doesn’t really do anything publicly, they continue to do shit behind closed doors.
>>22999512There will be a huge backlash against corporate consumerism. People are already getting sick of being constantly lied to, manipulated, spied on and sold to by businesses. This will grow into a massive movement in the near future.Things like frugal living, minimalism, DIY and self-sufficiency will become the cool new thing. Conspicuous consumption, big houses packed with useless shit, luxury brands, expensive weddings, lavish parties, etc will be made fun of and hated as the retarded shit boomers did in the past.People are going to become more rational and practical in how they manage their money.
I can’t think of many tech/culture predictions at the moment so most of these are political and in no particular order.>Trump is re-elected in 2020>War between the US and Iran, US looses the war after Russia and China back the current Iranian gov. This leads to more migrants to Europe and an ISIS 2.0 rising up in Iran, that is eventually defeated>Scotland secedes from the UK>Major economic recession>A very far left Democrat is elected in 2024>AR and VR are becoming more commonplace, with AR interfaces and devices replacing smartphones>Many eastern european countries leave the EU>Russia forms a superstate with Belarus and some central asian countries as founding members>The Economic recession causes mass unrest in Western Europe, however this leads to many WE countries becoming police states>The russia/the new superstate uses this chaos as a chance to puppet and annex some eastern european countries>China asserts its authority in SE Asia, almost all become Chinese puppets, China also invades Taiwan (ROC) in a swift invasion>Iran, South Korea, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt become nuclear powers>Russian Superstate and China fight for power and influence as they replace US and Europe as dominant world powers>US collapses simalarly to the USSR, however more violently, but not a full blown civil war>Whichever Democrat (which will be a woman) is elected President in 2024 is known as the last US President
>>23000005I think that China will collapse because their AI goes rogue and takes over the government

>>23000094>>Scotland secedes from the UKthey already voted and it didn't pass
>>22999611Just listened to a TED talk on AI writing music the other day. A program already exists that can compose orchestral pieces based on an input of genre, time period, mood, etc. You can even feed it a song and it will make something in that style. It sounds really good too, complex like a real professional composer wrote it. As this type of thing becomes commercially available and open source over the next few years, society will have some decisions to make. And the boomers in charge will fuck it up every step of the way in terms of legislation.

New atheism will philosophically be attacked and undermined, and the question about religion will no longer be about "science" but about people having the willpower to live to a moral code.

>>>/pol/219098818Watching the video in this thread.It's interesting, there is a very likely chance that a civil war will occur in the US this century.The ruling class want their new world order, the leftists are braindead zombies that will follow their masters without any ability to think for themselves, they truly want to destroy the United States and implement a one world communist order.Obviously world-wide communism run by far left shitskins and mentally ill SJWs would be absolute hell on earth, so anyone in their right mind (including non-whites) should want them to fail.After Donald Trump's second term there will be a critical point in the US where we either elect another republican, or a moderate democrat .. which neither seem likely since Agenda 2030 is right around the corner and the left are hungry for their NWO and seeing as our country is being flooded nonstop with shitskins it doesn't seem very likely we'll be able to have a voice in our own country anymore at a certain point.Violent warfare is pretty much guaranteed, but I'm not hopeful the right side will win considering the fed/military have robots, directed energy weapons and other advanced technology.It just doesn't seem likely at this point we'll be able to reverse back to a more primitive and simple way of life, a pre-Industrial/technological state as advertised by Ted Kaczynski.At the same time, I do not want to live under communism ruled by jews and shitskins, that would be worse than living in the Silent Hill otherworld (the Silent Hill otherworld is actually pretty cool as a themepark attraction type of thing).Both sides of the coin look very dreadful/painful and fucking suck .. I really do hope there is an alternative to these possible timelines that doesn't involve totalitarian governments or another dark age.

Two politicians and a prince are murdered in the same fall.It will come to place in Slovakia,but Czech will suffer most.The war will unfould after a quaternight. The morning after the war declaration the inverted tricolore will March in the Balkans and Germany...The second day of war will see 24 explosions in the sky and one in Prague. It will rain sulfur in Poland for a week.It will last 25 months.
This war will see growing tensions in Europe,and the end of the immigration wave. Erdogan will flee. The war in Syria will finally end. The tricolore will invade all but Norway,Finns resists. Dansk flower cut out itself by pressure. At that time Italy will fall,an anti pope flees with the saintly cretine. There will be an armistice for 10 days in that year's turning.Then huge operations occur,trenches will be built from Rostock to Zurich. The Turks expell the tricolore. The tired Eagle reaches the wall,but not the one promised. Seoul is sacked, Korean devastation will hurt many more than the calamity in Bohemia.
>>22999587You speak like the Beatles fucking invented musicThe Beatles is/was and are always going to be shit regardless of your opinions on them Marketing and trends have alot to do with a band’s success if they conform to what they’re signed forThere’s books on music theory, instruments to play it, computers and hardware to record and mix/master it, etc...If you don’t like what you hear, look for musicians outside of popular sources of medias and entertainment and you’ll find the real artistsOrMake your own
It will be tiresome...But after millions perish,the tricolore will accept a Truce. Shortly prior the Hans are cut out from the Rockies, disgusting battles in frozen lakes,the Denali watches. Shortly after six giant cities are besieged. Israel receives Golan.
>>22999512>trap musicif you even know what this is, you should strongly consider suicide
Then the Truce is broken,but all attempts fail. The Golden hair uses a tragedy's twenties and Christmas to gamble for peace. Golden Dawn is confirmed in power,near famine. FYRs put out their differences to particionate FYROM and keep neutrality. By this height Muslim insurgency in the east side has been dealt it. The third year dawns with the capitulation of the Hans,followed by a Lybian ceding passage and preceded by Indian cowardy. Famine in Bengala.
>>22999512pps get hard everywhere
Then finally Rome is recovered, altogether with the Northern Athens...But for that a great sacrifice occurs in the black woods, followed by heroism in the birch trees. He who leads marchs into the ruins of Berlin,but is soon betrayed and arrested. The Hans give out their pride and cede defeat. Formosa has been cleared up,but is nevertheless invited.A Coup occurs in Muscovy,a leads flees. The Staff is blamed for both the threes,and a reactionary uprising puts the soup back. A fifth and last armistice occurs. A Treaty ends the War.

widespread automation will eliminate most functionary level, travel/driving/delivery, processing, logistics and HR jobs.social Marxism will continue to spiral out of control, as will degeneracy.unchecked mass importation of incompatible 3rd worlders will continue into the west.widespread crime, civil disturbance and social erosion will continue due to a combination of Marxism, 3rd worlders and lack of jobs. most of these people will be unemployable for life and will only serve to create a large swath of homeless who gradually become more and more violent.they are going to start attacking the elite class and government officials, the elite will flee taking the only few remaining jobs that were available. the situation will get worse and lead to mass chimpouts, the military will likely be involved in attempting to quell the unrest.whites will attempt to escape and fortify into self sufficient colony's, they will either bring their company's with them or start new ones in the colony. this exacerbates the larger unemployment problem and makes the colony a larger target as they will be one of the few areas still having any prosperity.someone, somewhere is going to be in school and rapidly growing more and more tired of the situation. they will take things into their own hands and likely engineer a plague keyed to seek out only specific genes. im guessing all browns and jews.they wont say anything, there will be no warning, people will just start getting sick around whites, the carriers for this disease. the plague will spread across the Americas like a wildfire, somehow it will migrate to Europe and eventually Africa through intentional release by the Chinese to purge the last remaining Africans who have become more trouble then they are worth.there is a high degree of probability the plague will mutate or be changed intentionally before it burns out.we all die

>>22999558People will stop listening to music entirely due to the fact that it is all terrible and the only good stuff we've all heard so many times it's not even enjoyable anymore.There's gonna be a large scale economic shift and politics will get yanked around on a leash as a reaction to that. There will be a greater divide between people who have nationalist sentiment and people who have liberal sentiment.Major controversy is that the old money structure will be revealed to be corrupt to it's core and a bunch of now prestigious people will get wrecked.Spooks will try to maintain control by creating whatever kind of emergency or disaster they can.

>>23010399our brains are not clocked at 5GThe first discovered and best-known frequency band is alpha activity (8–12 Hz) that can be detected from the occipital lobe during relaxed wakefulness and which increases when the eyes are closed. Other frequency bands are: delta (1–4 Hz), theta (4–8 Hz), beta (13–30 Hz), low gamma (30–70 Hz), and high gamma (70–150 Hz) frequency bands, where faster rhythms such as gamma activity have been linked to cognitive processing.

>>23010399If you want to worry about em waves, look for stuff operating in our rangeExtremely low frequency (ELF) is the ITU designation for electromagnetic radiation (radio waves) with frequencies from 3 to 30 Hz, and corresponding wavelengths of 100,000 to 10,000 kilometers, respectively. ELF radio waves are generated by lightning and natural disturbances in Earth's magnetic field, so they are a subject of research by atmospheric scientists. Because of the difficulty of building antennas that can radiate such long waves, ELF frequencies have been used in only a very few man-made communication systems. ELF waves can penetrate seawater, which makes them useful in communication with submarines. The US, Russia, India, and China are the only nations known to have constructed ELF communication facilities. The U.S. facilities were used between 1985 and 2004 but are now decommissioned.go read the whole wikihttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extremely_low_frequency
>>23010399Super low frequency (SLF) is the ITU designation for electromagnetic waves (radio waves) in the frequency range between 30 hertz and 300 hertz. They have corresponding wavelengths of 10,000 to 1,000 kilometers. This frequency range includes the frequencies of AC power grids (50 hertz and 60 hertz).Because of the extreme difficulty of building transmitters that can generate such long waves, frequencies in this range have been used in very few artificial communication systems. However, SLF waves can penetrate seawater to a depth of hundreds of meters. Therefore, in recent decades the U.S., Russian and Indian military have built huge radio transmitters using SLF frequencies to communicate with their submarines. The U.S. naval service is called Seafarer and operates at 76 hertz. It became operational in 1989 but was discontinued in 2004 due to advances in VLF communication systems. The Russian service is called ZEVS and operates at 82 hertz. The Indian Navy has an operational ELF communication facility at the INS Kattabomman naval base to communicate with its Arihant class and Akula class submarines.The requirements for receivers at SLF frequencies is less stringent than transmitters, because the signal strength (set by atmospheric noise) is far above the noise floor of the receiver, so small, inefficient antennas can be used. Radio amateurs have received signals in this range using simple receivers built around personal computers, with coil or loop antennas connected to the PCs sound card. Signals are analysed by a software fast Fourier transform algorithm and converted into audible sound.

>>22999512I predict that reality's just going to split, bigger than any mandela effect we've ever seen. Somewhere along the line, They (being the world government/illuminati/NWO idk) realised that it's easier for Them to keep their reign if They pushed everyone to increasingly radical political views, almost to the point of caricature, as opposed to the tactic of political indifference attempted in the 20th century. The reason why the latter didn't work is because (some) people eventually did realise what was missing, and regained their political voices. They believe that by ensuring that people are pushed to either the right or left further and further, they will all eventually become far-right and far-left, instead of having a political spectrum on both sides there will be two distinct sides: extreme left and extreme right. Because of this, They will be able to keep both sides complacent very easily, and won't have any problems with continuing Their reign.Everything up to this point has been in the realm of reality. What I'm about to talk about is conjecture, so don't take it at face value.For almost all of human history, humanity's values have kept relatively uniform for most cultures: Honor, care for the young and a strong belief in the continuation of life. However, there has been a recent push to remove these values in the "extreme left" I've talked about and to strengthen them further than they should ever naturally go in the "extreme right". Because of this, the Collective Consciousness (all of human thought represented as a single entity) is being torn apart more and more. This is making Mandela effects which, while still minor, show that our reality as we know it has been split in two, with our consciousnesses frequently jumping from one to the other and retaining vague memories from both. This essentially explains the Mandela effect.This is just part 1 of 2 for now.
>>22999558>What will happen to music in the 2020s?More acoustic stuff, country unironically becomes mainstream in USA, European music though is more jazz and big band influenced, big push for real instruments.>What will happen on the geopolitical stage in the 2020s?The only thing that I believe might be seen as unexpected is that there's a civil war in Australia and Russia gives away Manchuria to China, it's an independent country but everyone knows that it's basically China 2.0.>What will the major controversies be in the news this decade? Which ones carry over from the 2010s and which are brand new?Huge scandal concerning public funds in EU, really shady stuff comes out, people being imprisoned and shunned down basically for being too successful during 90's-2010's.>Is there a major disaster? What kind? (i.e. human-controlled, natural disaster, cosmic, leak disclosure)If you can call it a disaster, the climate shifts a lot, huge migration to eastern European countries, Poland is 'the holiday destination' in 2028, Mediterranean basically uninhabitable due to temperatures.
>>23013444Let's continue with the idea of realities and timelines. If the human consciousness is able to jump between singular realities due to some power it has over reality (I'm not going to delve into how that power is derived, because I honestly don't know), then the Collective Consciousness is able to define reality. The only real evidence seen of this is Emoto's rice experiment, showing how thoughts can affect reality. Referring back to the collective values of humanity, this allows us to see realities where the honorable and just are rewarded with victory, while the wicked are punished. However, the core human values will change so much that, as mentioned before, the Collective Consciousness will split in two.After the push has been complete, we're going to see two different realities based on what the Collective Consciousness fragments represent: the Collective Consciousness of right-wingers will see a reality where everyone returns to tradition, there's potentially a third world war to clear out all degenerates (and put leftists in their place) and women return to their childbirthing role: essentially whatever the "extreme right" would like to see in the world. The Collective Consciousness of the "extreme left" would see humanity progressing to ensure equity for all, no matter the cost, and automation almost replacing humans entirely.Centrists would be few and far between by this point, and they would have one of the two realities chosen for them. However, some people (no matter their political ideology) who are skilled enough in "timeline hopping" will be able to jump between these two timelines, albeit with great effort. The greater the different between the two timelines, the harder it would be to jump between them. Anyway, that's my daily schizopost. Send feedback, do you think I should write a sci-fi novel?

Trump era ends with election of Kamala Harris as first U.S female President and Corey Booker as first openly gay U.S Vice President who succeeds in enacting number of laws in her first 100 days including higher taxes on wealthy, wall st tax - taxing of stock market and break up major monopolies affecting everything from Walmart to Walt Disney to Amazon, Facebook, Mondez, Nestle, Coca Cola. Most importantly universal healthcare system administrated by federal state is also pass in her second term. She also significantly cuts back on military spending something that President Booker continues in 2028 when he elected for his first term.The death of Fast Food. As most Americans continue to struggle more and more generations of Americans place better emphasis on their health and their diet as response. Just like they did with mall in this decade, Milllenials begin to kill fast food outlets as more and more look for healthy options on their phone, many of them made in secret kitchens and über to their place. Also home cooking make huge comeback with many more opting to eat in than eat out escalating fast food food crisis. Mc Donald's for example in final plea for relevence starts to sell their shit in store with their secret Big Mac sauce available to buy in jars from supermarket by 2029.

this prediction is from someone else not me but they go into detail about 2 superpowers of the world causing a nuclear war. Some mainland gets nuked then in retaliation a nuke is detonated in the south china sea and pretty much destroys all of asia with a tsunami, they choose to target the ocean because it would do more damage and missile defence could not attack it, it happens in 2023. People are supposedly scared for their life, living out in the woods in cabins. There's stories of large groups and a guy who can make electricity and he is regarded as a god. Apparently food isn't a problem because nature reclaims what man has created and animals and plant life thrive. The person i talked to was very adamant on this and was scared when explaining the reoccurring dream.
>>23019909they were a shitty cover band and were pulled aside and used for a new form of changing mindsets. i would venture to say elvis was the prototype, the beatles were the ultimate success. there's absolutely no art to any of it ; in the pure sense - it's all completely psychology/ intelligence/ et. at this point they've perfected the solo artist/ the band that can influence people so flawlessly, that people STILL to this day cannot catch on. when you have your cultural lags you have your 'musicians' oftentimes to thank for that. absolutely nothing is worth listening to, nothing. it's all subtle suggestive somnambulism and mind-fucking. you couldn't pay a person to agree with that though. when you see the picture, you can hear it in every single lyric; even your favorite stuff. it sucks but that's the way it is

The media detoriorates into a chaotic mess where entertainers are given the same level of authority as world leaders. Guy Fieri becomes chief justice of the Supreme Court and he rewrites the Constitution into a system of fascist, theocratic laws. The Insane Clown Posse wins the 2024 election, becoming the first (and last) Dual-Presidents of the United States. Their administration will pass several dangerously stupid policies, like replacing tap water with Faygo, and making the new national anthem a recording of Violent J farting into a microphone, but their laws will culminate in the genocidal program known as the Hilarocaust. Anyone the Posse deemed insufficiently mirthful will be sent to death camps run by Guy Fieri and executed. The Hilarocaust will end up killing five billion people. Resistance movements will arise and try to kill Fieri and the Posse. This will be done by a man riding a shitty skateboard and a woman wielding knitting needles.
