Developments in science and technology allow futurists to predict the forthcoming living conditions. In fact, it is possible to forecast the future by looking at recent technological brake through, varying from genetics to cold fusion. For instance, one can easily propose that humanity is increasing the speed of everything within a more diversified world. However, this argument per se indicates the controversial enrichment of contemporary society. On the one hand, increase in the speed shows that there is still a modernist tendency which carries out the enlightenment heritage in the form of progress. On the other hand, this speed contributes to diversification of everything  which for some scholars represents time and space compression , for others the demise of grand narratives for a more pluralistic world .
