Dystopian writers and comic artists have been predicting since the 1960s that
people will need spacesuits or some such personal protective equipment just to
survive on Earth, which is becoming a toxic waste dump, not to mention the
possibility of pollution via bio-terror and chemical warfare. The wearable
self-propelled robotic suits that are designed for combat soldiers may end up
as the business suits of the post-evolutionary phase transition.

Useless hypotheses, etc.:
 consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, cryonics, individual
uniqueness, ego, human values, scientific relinquishment, malevolent AI

We move into a better future in proportion as science displaces superstition.
