If the average life expectancy was 140 years, how would the terms of training/rule/punishments, the number of days in a week change? By Education Posted on 2022-02-14 Category : Other How would society and our everyday life change?
It is impossible to say for sure, because this could lead to completely unpredictable consequences (see the butterfly effect).
But I would suggest changes similar to those already with an increase in average life expectancy. But based on the fact that we will not suddenly start living for 140 years, but will come to this gradually.
Then everything is very simple, the terms of training and retirement age will change, the rest will remain approximately as it was. Days of the week and time measurements will not change at all, they are not tied in any way to the terms of our life.
The terms of training will change simply because with a longer life expectancy, people will be able to achieve greater professionalism, respectively, the bar of education will rise, and with it the terms of training will rise, possibly even adulthood (with a shorter life expectancy-it came earlier, because it took less time to get used to the world).
Pension terms – because it is economically feasible. I think everything is obvious here.
The terms of punishment should not change significantly, because they punish people again not for a certain part of their life, but for a fixed amount of time, depending on the damage.
The number of days in a week, the length of a year, and other time periods are not tied to the length of a human life. Plus, even the number of working days per week will not change (it may change for other reasons that are not related to the life span), because you need to alternate between rest and work, and this ratio does not depend on the average life span.
