A hundred years from now, what will people do? They almost certainly won't yak on cellphones, surf the 'Net, or burn petroleum derivatives in big vehicles to move their bodies from place to place. (They may, however, pursue other ways to communicate, retrieve information, and get about physically.)

People almost certainly will get married and raise children. They'll watch (and participate in) games of runnning, throwing, catching, etc. They'll study at centers of learning. They will read and write, make music and pictures. They'll work to create value and then trade what they've produce with each other. And they will band together to maintain peaceful, cooperative, productive environments in which such activities can take place.

Different in detail, but the same in substance as we've been doing for millennia ....
