Re: Outcome of humanity in 100 years
If we're lucky, we'll develop into something out of an E.E. "Doc" Smith novel. Hopefully, not playing the role of any of the losers.
Which brings me to the question of why oh why did the original list NOT contain, say, Lensmen? I mean, if you're going to include Jedi...
(For those who don't know: if you've got fully developed Lensmen about the place, Darth Vader's a pussy and the Death Star is for wimps.
In one of "Doc" Smith's non-Lensmen works, he has his hero blow up an entire galaxy, albeit with a bit of help.)
