The relentless rise of technology and the willingness of men to experiment means we are likely to see a merging of mankind and technology over the next couple of hundred years – producing real cyborgs. These will be highly efficient and productive workers.
Eventually, the human race as we know it will disappear – unless we stop this trend.
We have the technology to create the future. Do we have an appropriate ideology to match? Are enough people (other than science fiction writers) thinking about the issues, the dilemmas, the controversies, the principles that will help us govern and mange this change.
I don’t think so. It will probably just happen – in ways we don’t want. And it will be our fault!
