Xylophones without oilEdit

Modern xylophones made with fiberglass-reinforced plastic (which allows a louder sound) would no longer be made.

When required for education in classrooms, or by bands (once the sound has a resurgency of popularity within the indie-rock scene) they will need to be made in a traditional fashion from locally sourced wood and metal.

Xenophilia without oilEdit

From Wikipedia: "Xenophily or xenophilia means an affection for unknown objects or human beings. It is the opposite of xenophobia or xenophoby. The word is a synthesis from the Greek "xenos" (ξένος) (stranger, unknown, foreign) and "philos" (φίλος) (love, attraction). In common usage it means an attraction to foreign peoples, cultures, or customs."

In a world where people travel less and focus on their own local geographic environment, and where manufactured goods now longer are sold as global commodities, we will see a resurgence of cultural differences. Art, architecture, clothing, music, food, and made goods will all reflect local materials, values, tastes and trends.

Living in a smaller, more circumscribed physical world, people will be hungry for variety, for difference, for novelty. We will see different cultures and practices through the Internet, which will feed our desire for them.

Because we often desire and form emotional bonds with the things we cannot have, xenophilia -- the attraction to foreign people, culture and customs -- will increase
