We will soon be made redundant, doing nothing. Is the future really as bleak as it sounds? You can see how technology is affecting jobs in supermarkets, self service check out. A Sainsbury’s branch is trialling out a store with no checkouts meaning less people need to be be employed.

you know, it's a pretty weird trait of society when people are viewing not having to work as being a bad thing

Its much worse than that. 'Downloadable brains', microchips, nano, mind reading tech. Orwellian nightmare.

Joking aside I heard last year that the rich in America put that contactless like chip in their finger so they can just tap it and go, its a status symbol.

Imagine that? A whole world with no jobs and robots running everything.

I imagine there would be no need for money either, with food and drink in abundance. There won't even be housework to do.

Just lots of doing whatever we want - perusing hobbies, curing cancer, inventing teleporters and stuff.

On the one hand, there's automation replacing human work and leading to a post-scarcity society; on the other hand we have climate change, rising sea levels, drowning cities, and biodiversity loss. I have no idea what this century's going to be like but it's gonna be a ride.

I know. Its horrendous. Its already happened to people without consent. Not necessarily in the brain. But it's happened. Rare to find someone who takes it seriously. I've been trying for years to change something about the direction of travel(personal experiences mean I know how bad it is). But you can't do it without more people on board on this issue.

Standing still is entirely your prerogative, but your descendants are nonetheless assured of a warm welcome when they join me and mine on Mars.
