--It will be possible to tinker with the brain--to make the human memory more reliable and accessible at the expense, say, of breadth in sensory responses.

--Intelligent machines will probably be able to provide enough goods so that all people can live decently.

--Life may be so extended that travel to the stars will be feasible. Tachyon beams may be used for information transfer between stars. (Tachyons are hypothetical particles that move faster than the speed of light.) It may even be possible to use tachyons to "transfer" people, atom by atom, to some other place in space.

--Humans will be able to reach new levels of consciousness, to control creative processes, to perceive logic in a direct way (as we now perceive color, for instance).

--It may be possible to bring about a collective consciousness, a merging of all human minds into one, and then link this up with extraterrestrial consciousness.
