    Ash_Freakstreet Hmm.... GROOVY!

    My List:
    1. Artificially intelligent machines
    2. Supercomputers with 10,000x the power of a human brain
    3. Teledildonics
    4. Human Cloning
    5. Designer Babies
    6. SDI Defense (Hell Yes!)
    7. Mass-producable orbital transport
    8. Virtual Reality indistinguishable from the real world
    9. Soldiers equipped with a mechanical exosekelton
    10. Newer, more lethal, Fighter Jets with laser cannons
    11. 10,000 Manifestos on how to govern, prompted by the crumble of democracy (Yes, philosophy can be considered a technology)

    What makes you think we'll still be living in a technology-loving society at that time?

    because human beings are technology-loving creatures by nature.

    Well when there's almost nothing to keep technology "alive", they'll have to compromise then... :p

    yep... it's sad but we may have to resort to extracting the oil out of dead bodies to keep the ball of technology rolling...

    But the ball will roll, it always has.

    Actually, it has not always kept rolling. Look at Rome, and Byzantine, and Egypt, etc etc...

    I can definately see the same happening to America.

    Yep... and I am sure nuclear energy will proliferate... We still have leftover ICBMs from the cold war, don't we?

    I think it is an unproven fact that we do, just like it's widely known by everyone with a brain that we have more nuclear weapons than any other country on the Earth.

    My list:

    Nuclear Winter

    Edit:
    That was thought of before the nuclear weapons thing started, if it matters at all...

    as long as we have teledildonics and environmental control.
