In 60 years there will be a revolution in the brain network and we can leave our physical bodies entirely. In 80-90 years we give up our bodies completely and become beings of energy. In 100 the aliens land. Find all these organisms attached to a huge brain network and decide to pull the plug. We all end up being shunted to the nearest terminal and end up in the wrong body.
I have way too much time. [/B]
Sounds like the matrix gone extrremly bad. Yeah we would end up in the wrong bodies and, our brains would reject it and we would all die.
I think a more likely scenario, is we all blow ourselves up in nuclear war.
Ever seen the movie equilibrium, basically in the future all emotions are banned and everyone has to take pills so they don't feel anything. Quite an interesting film if you like that kind of thing.
