Personally I think man will be extinct, or reduced to the stone age, by 2200. There are so many ways we could take ourselves out:
- climate change.
- nuclear war.
- environmental destruction.
- bio war.
- artificial intelligence declaring us obsolete.
- runaway technology.
- extinction of crucial species that sustain us.
To pass this gauntlet we are going to have to be very smart, and very focused on the big picture. What are the main impediments to intelligent thinking?
- political ideologies.
We need people working on preventing the various avenues of extinction and on derailing the impediments to logical thinking. I doubt we will make it, but what else can we do in the meantime but give it our best shot?~ Roedy (born:1948-02-04 age:68)
