Read Ray Kurzweil's (sp) vision of the future. He's an MIT scientist who is very optimistic about the future and the great gains in material wealth and computing power in our hands in about 20 decades. Read about his notion of "Singularity" when computer power surpasses The human brain. Another physicist, Michio Kaku, cofounder of string theory, think much like Kurzweil. Both are very prominent on YouTube. Watch them. Both are very smart and interesting speakers.
