My partner told me that it would probably be easier to read and easier to make if I made it in a table then added all my description below and then I just copy pasted all the stuff into a new table and combined them to make one big description.
My original Plan
Colour Coding Explanation:
Foragers- I chose light green to represent foragers because they weren’t much agriculture or technology then so there weren’t many global issues.
Famers- I chose Yellow because the time of farmers was when things were starting to go well and not many issues were arising.
Factories- I chose Grey to represent factories because this was around the time of the modern revolution and there were a lot of problem arising there such as wars or pollution.
Future- I chose light blue to represent the future because nobody knows for sure what the future will be like so its light blue. Another reason it is specifically light blue is I have a more utopian vision of the future so it isn’t fully dark blue.
Foragers- I chose meat as my symbol for foragers because foragers were hunter gatherers and when they hunt, they hunt for meat. Even though gatherers were the main sources of food, I feel that hunters best represent foragers because of their abnormal large bodies making them more durable for hunting. Another reason I chose meat is because if a hunter was able to hunt a mammoth they could make it last years by combing it with their gathers to make it more conservative.
I chose feet as my symbol for transportation because 200,000-10,000 years ago they didn’t have domesticated animals or vehicles, therefore the only way to get around was walking or running.
I chose the mouth icon to represent communication because foragers did have basic verbal communication, with little words compared to today. Towards the start of foragers time they only basic muttering because full words weren’t formed yet.
I chose the symbol of Village to represent trading because foragers didn’t have a large trading network, the only places they would be trading is inter-tribe because they were only trying to help their tribe out, this also includes ideas, if someone had a good idea they would tell their tribe about it so they can improve their tribe.
believe that foragers greatest achievement is fire. Fire was one of the best and most Important achievements because without fire they couldn’t do many things. One thing fire was used for is creating, foragers would use fire to make their weapons. Another thing they would use fire for is warmth, they would need warmth in the winter for survival. The last big thing they would use fire for is cooking, they couldn’t eat raw food, because if they did then they have the risk of getting a disease.
Farmers- I chose wheat icon to represent food because around the time of Farmers they just discovered domestication. Wheat was the first known domesticated crop. It can be combined with other resources and turned into food, such as bread or cereal. Wheat not only doesn’t take long to grow, but it is also a filling resource.
I chose a horse icon to represent transportation because of domestication. Domestication had allowed farmers to domesticate horses and ride them. It would probably have been possible to domesticate other animals to have the same feature but horses were strong required little resources and fertilised their land.
I chose the speech icon to represent communication because at this time humans had a more similar type of communication as to what have today, it was not completely the same though. At this time people had developed many languages and were speaking words more fluently than even before. This allowed non-contractual communication and non-visible communication.
I chose the civilisation icon to represent trading because around the time of farmers they would trade what they had extra for what they didn’t have or couldn’t make. For instance, farmers could trade horses for other tools that would allow them to breed more horses or to better fertilise their crops.
I chose the domestication icon to represent farmers greatest achievement, because domestication has opened so many doors for farmers in the area of food and work. Domestication allowed selective breeding, selective breeding allowed farmers to grow corn, corn used to be a small and provided little food, then farmers took out the good seeds, planted the good seeds, and threw away the bad or dead seeds, over time they managed to grow the perfect yellow corn we have today. Another example of a way domestication was helpful is transportation. Domestication allowed farmers to domesticate horses so be ridden. Another way domestication was used on animals is cattle, cattle were domesticated to pull heavy carts with longs metal prongs in them to fertilise the soil.
Factories- I chose the icon of feat to represent food because around the time of the modern revolution people were earning more money than ever, there was also minor poverty around this time. But more people could afford expensive food that is why they were having more feasts than ever.
I chose the car icon to represent my transportation because now that people were working in factories more metal items were being manufactured, and cars are one of them and with people making more money they could afford them and they were faster as well.
I chose the phone icon to represent communication because basic phones were invented by this time and this was a way to communicate without directly seeing the person, and everyone has their own number. Although, at the time phones were very expensive so many people could afford it.
I chose the world symbol to represent trading because at this time worldwide trade existed and it was being used by this time. Worldwide trade allowed for more resources, more valuables, and more food. All of this led us to advancement in agriculture.
I chose worldwide trade to represent the modern revolutions greatest achievement because worldwide allowed humans of different tribes and/or cities to give their valuable goods and in return get someone else’s valuable goods. This would be useful for instance if the UK wanted diamonds but their land didn’t have any, and Africa wanted cars but they didn’t have the materials to make it, Africa could give the UK some diamonds and in return get the resources to build a car.
Future- I chose the symbol of a worm to represent food because insects provide lots of nutrition and proteins and there over 1,600 different species that are currently edible. It will probably take a long time for people to get used to this but when they do it will be an alternative to protein and nutrients.
I chose the symbol of an electric car to represent transportation because electric cars will off less pollution and will be easier to get around with. Electric Cars would also allow for a possible self-driving prototype because the system with all be electronic.
I don’t believe that in 30 years there will be anything like telepathy or anything like that although, the iPhone wasn’t believed to be made possible but it was. I believe that the chances are very small. Therefore, it is most likely to be only electronic communication (iPhones telephones etc.).
I chose the world symbol again to represent trade because I don’t believe that there will be a different form of trade in the nest 20 years because again I don’t believe that 30 years will be enough time to find teleportation or other advanced more efficient ways of transportation.
I chose the symbol of A.I. to represent their greatest achievement because I think that in 30 years something that will be achievable is advanced A.I. For instance, let’s use Siri as an example, Siri is a form of A.I. that can understand your voice and respond to it, it can get updated on who won the last baseball game or what’s on the news, this was developed 11 years after the first iPhone came out. With three times that amount of time I think it will be quite easy to develop a new more advanced an efficient A.I.
