I'm working on a certain idea, it's Fantasy but has the same principle: What would happen to this world if anything electrical related would become unusuable? Let's forget the cause, as it's not really important right now. The only thing you know is that it doesn't affect anything within nature, but we can't have anything run on electricity. Immediate: Millions of deaths, causing uprival et. and the entire world will be in chaos for many many years to come. But what afterwards? To start off with we'd have to live pre-industry type of settings. Or would we straight away make machinery again? Steam engines/ computers working on gravity? Or will we find a new way of processing information without the need of an electrical current? What would happen to social statuses? Royals/famous, become ordinary? Who would be the first to take control? Power crazy with no remorse? Would money remain of any value? What would the world look like 50/100 years later? Will we smaller countries once more and be in a contineous war amongst each other? So basically once again like we were before the industry arised. Or would we be able to create more of a harmonious time? What will happen to any of the information we know about making electrical equipment, will be forgotten within 1 generation? Would any of the books be stored and for how long? What about a 1000 years? Would we be scientifically more advanced than we are now or will we have another middle age? A lot of questions, sorry. So last one: What do you think?
