Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. The future is somewhat uncertain and has been shown in a lot of movies making consumers see how we will live in a few years. Some say that we will eat through pills (like astronauts), others that we will travel in flying cars and others that we will be dominated by robots. Although we know little about what our next years will be like, it is true that technology is advancing at more than steep steps and, increasingly, we see advances that were unthinkable a few years ago and that are improving our quality of life.

    The families previously were made up of a father, mother and children, but now over the years a series of changes have been taking place in the way in which the links are established, lived together, educated and in the way in which it shows love or affection. The fears, the customs, the upbringing and the tastes are presented with great transformations because the society advances at great strides making that nothing is equal to the past.

    In my opinion any family is good as long as they give us a good education and take care of us with love. I do not believe that the families of the future are very different from the current ones, the only thing that could be different is that it is increasingly common to see women or men who decide to have a child and form their own family without a partner.


  2. People think that in the not too distant future we will travel in trains that go on tubes, we will have magical doors that will take us to all the places in the world, we will be able to fly, we will be immortal and all diseases will be able to be cured, but we can not have a Approximate idea.
    Families in the future will have a more open thinking, nowadays families tend to be smaller, less children or even do not have them, before they were broader and had a much more closed thought in all aspects.
