Heather Orr (@heather.s.orr) is a TikToker who shares thought-provoking videos about the interactions between mental health, spiritual growth and social change. In a recent video that polarized TikTokers, Orr shared five predictions for how the world will be different by 2050.

In the controversial video, Orr posited that everything from the food we eat to the way we form relationships will be radically changed in just over a quarter of a century.

The video begins with a shot of Orr looking into the camera with a smile on her face.

“5 predictions for 2050,” she writes in the caption. Then the TikToker dives into her fascinating projections for the future.

“Number one, you will not be eating factory-farmed meat,” she claims. “You will either be eating lab-grown meat or vegan meat. The economics of factory farming aren’t sustainable without our subsidies, and we are going to stop subsidizing them.”

The TikToker pauses for a moment to collect her thoughts, then launches into her second prediction: “Two, alcohol will be seen as the new tobacco, and you’ll see a sharp rise in alcohol-free living,” she states.

“Three, microdoses of Psilocybin are going to replace depression and anxiety medication for a whole lot of people,” she predicts next.

Then the TikToker begins moving into predictions about relationships.

“Four, you’re going to see a sharp rise in child-free living,” she says. “It’s going to be normalized, and people are going to stop asking you when you’re going to be having kids.”

Finally, Orr claims, “I think that the institution of marriage is going to go through a major overhaul.”

Could these predictions happen even earlier?

While some TikTokers applauded Orr’s predictions, others were skeptical.

“This is like my dream world,” one viewer wrote.

“Yeah, I feel like by 2035 all that will be true,” another TikToker agreed.

“As a rancher/farmer, I wish people could see how hard we work to feed the world while simultaneously trying to better the environment,” wrote another TikToker.
