I think that the humans, past and present have a unique sense of creativity and imagination that allows and helps us with the skill of prediction. In this video, the creators predicted what the tech will be like in the future, in this case, the internet. The first part, the predicted online shopping, which turns out to be AMAZON. The mail they write is another prediction: EMAIL!
This is the unique part about humans that other species don’t have is creativity. Well, monkeys have some creativity, but humans are the only species that have a HUGE expansion of creativity. Now our creativity has expanded as we learn new things. This is another factor that makes humans unique. We learn. I think this is why we turned out to be really advanced compared to 1969.
