Chapter Twelve: Future Roads For The Human Psyche

VII. After 2060

Up to this point, the narrative has focused mainly on developments that can be expected to affect human society in the next sixty years, say up to 2060. In the next and final chapter of Book Two we will need to move a step further in order to consider alternatives to humans, or if you prefer, ways in which we may choose to develop our minds in future.

Book Three will present an overall history and time-line of the 21st century, and the regulatory and cultural structures which will have to be developed to accommodate the wide-ranging technological possibilities which have been touched on above. In particular, the implications of the development of RCRs and RCCs for human individuals and their culture are obviously immense.
