ABSTRACT | The (extremely ambitious) aim of this survey talk is to motivate "Rapoport-Zink spaces" (in the most general sense) and illustrate what we expect to hold in an ideal world we imagine. Most of the constructions, theorems, and conjectures were motivated by the studies of Shimura varieties, and often both theory have strong analogies, which we try to explain in this survey talk.
