The Great World Transformed Debate

 

The future is on its way. What will it be like? Phil and Stephen debate some pivotal questions about what may unfold in the years to come:

Resolved: The discovery of extraterrestrial life is inevitable, as is the discovery of extraterrestrial intelligence.
Resolved: Newly discovered oil reserves will go largely untapped; the future belongs to alternative sources of energy.
Resolved: Within a decade, bitcoin — or something like it — will be one of the world’s leading currencies.
Resolved: Humanity’s fate is summarized in the title of R. Buckminster Fuller’s book: Utopia or Oblivion. One or the other is inevitable.
