range of techniques for applying structure and analysis to
the envisaged and forecasted future scenarios. Taken
together, transdisciplinarity, creativity, futurology, and ethics can accelerate and expand the journey into our brave
new future, examples of which might well be remotely programmable synthetic genomics, quantum neurobiology, and
coordinated mapping of multiple exocortices.
