I was considering putting this in the research thread because that's sort of what I'm doing. But then I thought, why not have a discussion about this that may trail off into other topics. I want people's ideas of what they think will happen to humanity in the very far future. I'm talking from 10,000+ years into the future. I want to talk politics, religion, colonisation, evolution, disasters, universe, alien life, computers, anything really. If we can get a stimulated discussion going here, it will give me (and hopefully others) some ideas to include in my science fiction novel. Offshoot topics are welcomed, as I know there are science fiction fans here who may have beliefs of their own that they want to share. I'll give you a template to help you get thinking. Tell me what you envision the human race will be like/dealing with in: 10,000 years 100,000 years 1 million years 100 million years A couple of rules first. While I encourage and welcome all ideas, please respect people's beliefs when it comes to religion and evolution. And the number one rule, I don't want people saying that the human race will be dead. That does not stimulate discussion or provide any ideas for anyone. So, talk away!
