The application of technological ideas of efficiency and perfectability to biological systems has been the fundamental error of modern society. -- Richard Akerman, 2001

All we can say for sure is that the future will be different. In particular we will all be older and eventually dead. On that cheery note I invite you to consider the world we want to inhabit, for while our individual stays are brief, I think we would like the Earth to be a pleasant place for us and the generations to come. Until of course the Sun expands as a red giant and engulfs the world in flame.

This page contains articles about things that I think are hopeful, and other articles about things I think are quite disturbing.
