The present is rough enough,extinction for many speices.That's my prediction.

"If you want a picture of the future,imagine a boot stomping on a human face-- forever."

George Orwell

"There is infinite hope,but not for us."

Franz Kafka

"We can neither put back the clock nor slow down our forward speed,and as we are already flying pilotless,on instrument controls,it is too late to ask where we are going".

Igor Stravinsky

"This is my prediction for the future:Whatever hasn't happened will happen,and no-one will be safe from it."

Ridley Scott directed the movie "Blade Runner" but when questioned about "Brave New World" he feels he can never make the movie because he cannot do the movie justice.

Nevertheless I felt up to the challenge. I like "Brave New World'"because they solved the problem of abortion by giving a woman a choice to use a baby making machine rather than enduring the pain of pregnancy.

Pretty much this [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHGHkGmOmD4[/youtube] and it would be ruled in a matriarcal society.

If things stay as they are, society will revert to a feudalism of sorts. Increasing scarcity, climate change and further automation means a very small upper class control all political and economic decisions, while the vast underclass neither has no say nor can rebel.

Technology may change this trajectory. I just feel we are heading that way.

There is only one thing the future must have: holodecks...... and the sex has to be exactly like the real thing within said holodecks.
