Much of the future has already arrived, so it’s time to think about something new. With so many technologies set to completely disrupt life as we know it in the next few years, it can be hard to look much further, towards a world that in all likelihood lies beyond our own lifetimes. But to do so is to breathe new life into our concept of the future, towards fantastical ideas that may end up shaping the human race for millennia to come.

In this section we look at the future that will follow our lifetimes, and consider what lies in wait in the next century and beyond.
