The Tower of Possibility

Phil  and Stephen   return to one of their favorite topics — The Adjacent Possible — “a kind of shadow future, hovering on the edges of the present state of things, a map of all the ways in which the present can reinvent itself.”

How do the plans of Thoth, a Canadian aerospace firm, to construct a 20-KM-high inflatable space elevatordemonstrate the adjacent possible? Such a tower would have obvious implications for space travel, but what about energy, terrestrial travel, communications, recreation, sports, etc.? The possibilities are vast once you begin exploring them.

Plus: a Modafinil update.
