    famous novel, "They're a cleaner, better breed than us." Another wise person also pointed out that prediction is always very risky, especially as regards the future. I often wonder if we will so destroy the environment that robots and computers are going to be in charge by default, because we will all be dead.

    For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life. - Albert Camus

      Now, that part of his prediction I could "vote" for, but he didn't mention that this would turn back global warming.

      And yes, it is questionable whether civilization will even be around by 2050, at least on this lovely planet.
