What theories out there currently? I know there have been ideas for more than a hundred years, but they have been hit and miss, usually getting the details way wrong.
Will there be overpopulation with the majority of people living in poverty more like the 1800s with the depletion of water, energy, and mineral resources? Religion dominating? Or computers continue to effect daily lives more and more, living like modern people?
Will the concept of races become a novelty, people pretending to be races while every generation gets more mixed?
Will there be an upper class of humans living genetically altered with microscopic internal machines keeping them healthy and youthful looking? Similar to ideas in Brave New World and The Time Machine.
Will 80%+ species of everything go extinct and what is left altered by human activity? Will the whole Earth become like a typical American community, full of the same trees everywhere and the same few animals that adapt, the same bugs, mowed hybrid grasses and weeds the same everywhere (depending on different climates)? Or will there still be some diversity? Will a tropical environment that had 500 species in a lake be reduced to 20 or so? Even if the planet is "saved", however one would define "saved", bio-diversity is reduced for millions of years? Almost all populations of larger animals will be unnatural managed populations?
