John Lilly, M.D. had a ketamine-induced vision of sci-fi-like future/s
of Earth a few centuries from now, worth reading. It centers around the
increasing independence of, and self-preserving/human-controlling
activities of, the "Solid State Entity", which is roughly the net sum of
the silicon-based "life forms" on Earth. Check it out in Lilly's
autobiography, The Scientist.
