" Message from the 4lst Century "

Almost two thousand years ago, the city of Pompeii simply vanished.
The contemporary society in which we live is facing a similar critical state.
We are soon approaching the 21st century.
We can almost omagine the world we will be living in.
However, if this was a world two thousand years in the future, it would be beyond our imagination.
I am often buried in my own thoughts thinking about such things as: Will the earth still exist then? If so, what will have happened to mankind?
If today's society in which we live is excavated as a "fossil" two thousand years from now, in the 4lst century, what on earth would it look like?
My objective is to condense the contemporary world into my creations.
