 Author: Daniel Berleant ,  Category: Social Sciences, Strategy  Publisher: Independent  Published: 11 Feb, 2020  ISBN: 8600869622  Pages: 392

You will get an engaging and thought provoking ride. In future scenarios written to make science and technology readable and intriguing, the author weaves imagination, science, and even occasional dry humor into a gripping whole. The possible future realities described in these speculative essays, with time scales ranging from the current century to nearly eternity, may inspire readers young and old, even thinkers, writers and leaders. Updated edition. Includes over 400 references and links to more information. Peer reviewed for scientific accuracy. Here are just some of the topics you will read about:

  • A week’s worth of food can be produced with just one hour of labor, so could we all have lives of leisure?
  • Cognitive enhancement the easy way: from pills to ultrasound to electrical stimulation and more.
  • When computers can read our minds we won’t need WIMP (windows-icons-mouse-pointer) based computers any more.
  • A telepresence robot is a long distance extension of yourself, and some day could allow you to work anywhere while living wherever you want.
  • Colonizing the moon, Mars, and other planets and moons is possible in principle, so how might we actually do it?
  • “It doesn’t grow on trees” is a problem whose future solution is genetically engineered trees.
  • An asteroid ended the dinosaurs and one could end us too, but there are ways to protect against them.
