Today nobody is interested in the Future at all. Future has been annexed into the present. Occasionally a futuristic image is trotted out, ransacked like an image of the past and absorbed into the ongoing continuum that represents present-day life.

After all time is no more than a neuropsicologic structure that we inherit and that like the appendix or corporal hair no longer need. Our next great evolutionary leap  will not be of the physical but mental type. We will learn to live thinking that everything happens at the same time. That is to say "No Future".
