A Brief History of Predicting the Future

A quick and lively romp to give the general reader a taste of what futurology today is all about and a feel for the long uphill climb it has made from its humble beginnings in the dawn of antiquity. Written by an experienced futurist who has interviewed over 350 people for their opinion about the future, it describes how predicting the future has changed many times through the centuries: from magic to science, and from science fiction to computation. It also explains some of what is yet to come, such as AI, The Singularity, Transhumanism, life extension, and other weird things that are likely to alter your life.


Indistinguishable from Magic: Predictions of Revolutionary Future Science

A few of the far future scientific and technological innovations which will transform our civilization from what it is now into an exponentially larger, faster, stronger and more dynamic civilization than can be contained on this planet, or in this solar system, or within this universe. These technologies will allow us to expand through those boundaries and find new unimagined boundaries beyond them to break through. Written by an experienced futurist who has interviewed over 350 people for their opinion about the future, its chapter titles include -- We Will Transmute the Elements; We Will Develop Many Completely New Physics; My Father's Watch; Hidden-Life May be More Common on Planets than Non-Hidden: And Earth May be No Exception; The Universal Diagram; Engineering Space: Altering This Universe and Making New Ones
