I don't know how we get precognition. But:

With brain-computer linkage, we get telepathy and empathic psi. Add utility fog (or equivalent) and we get telekinesis and fire-starting. With assemblers and disassemblers, we get teleportation (albeit really slowly).

Any sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from magic...
