Welcome to the Technology page for the Terra Futura project.

Ever since the development of stone tools, humanity has been inventing progressively more advanced forms of technology which would also change society. In the future, technology will become more advanced, and society will change even farther eventually becoming alien to modern man. Also, technology will cause humanity to turn something that is completely different from humanity today.

Technology Levels

This technology level scale is a modified version of the one that was created by technology enthusiast Paul Lucas for his website, orbitalvector.com. The modifications are based on Michio Kaku's Physics of the Future. Here it is:

Technology Level Description Time Period
Level 0 No tech whatsoever Before 2,500,000 years ago
Level 1 Stone Age 2,500,000 years ago - 5000 BC
Level 2 Copper, Bronze, and Iron Age 5000 BC - 500 BC
Level 3 Classical Era 500 BC - 500 AD
Level 4 Middle Ages 500 AD - 1450 AD
Level 5 Renaissance 1450 AD - 1700 AD
Level 6 Age of Reason 1700 - 1850
Level 7 Victorian Era 1850 - 1900
Level 8 Era of World Wars I & II 1900 - 1945
Level 9 Cold War 1945 - 1990
Level 10 Information Age 1990 - 2030
Level 11 Era of World War III and the formation of the Earth Federation 2030 - 2070
Level 12 Unification Era 2070 - 2100
Level 13 Interstellar Age (This is where humanity becomes a Type I civilization.) 2100 - 3000
Level 14 Intergalactic Age (This is where humanity becomes a Type II civilization.) 3000 - 1000000
Level 15 Cosmic Age (This is where humanity becomes a Type III civilization.) 1000000 - The End of Time

(Note: Levels 13-15 are purely arbitrary and depend on how science plays out in the future.)
