Should we think exponentially into the future?

Here’s some food for thought.

The world is changing exponentially, while the human mind thinks of the future as rather linear, based on our rather linear past. We tend to extrapolate our future lifestyle based on our parents' lifestyle and so on. Since most of the people think this way, most of the people will end up being wrong about how the future could look like.

Exponential thinking coupled with curiosity can give rise to ideas or opinions that may appear nonsensical to others at first, but if pursued could make the world a better place.
