WELCOME to the FUTURE, where advancements and changes in biology, electronics, engineering, and society result in many different futuristic scenarios that synergize into scenario-books. In this book, you will find a vast database of ideas pertaining to the discipline of futurology, as well as of current trends, various subject areas, and changes yet to occur. Are we speculative or are we scientific? We're both: we recognize the importance of scientific accuracy and practical realism, as well as that of drastic points of divergence, in the creation of our scenarios. Our guide to futurology provides an introduction to the discipline of futurology, while our standard timeline provides an introduction to the future.


We all dream of what the future might hold.
