      But I am 62. I may live to see some of the building blocks firmly in place: cheap 3-D printing, advances in fast, compact, relatively heatless processing, almost infinite storage capacity, etc. Something could speed the process - an energy breakthrough on the level of nuclear fusion, or a massive natural disaster or pandemic (not to be wished for, of course)...

      There will likely be years of social upheaval. The haves will be desperate to figure out away to rent this progress to the have nots, desperate and ruthless...

      By the time the dust settles, I'll likely be long gone...
