Monday March 24, 2014 Started drafting a future. One I would find plausible long enough to set stories there.

Some of my assumptions: 1) There isn't going to be "the end of history" -- a time when society is properly organized and everyone is rational. There won't be an end to wars and other waste motion.

2) Cosmology and physics will not achieve The Final Theory That Explains Everything.

3) There will be unexpected social and technological changes. But things which are obviously going to change won't.

4) Spaceships are not going to be run just like sailing ships.

Electric 'thinking cap' controls learning speed
Date: March 23, 2014
Source: Vanderbilt University
Summary: Caffeine-fueled cram sessions are routine occurrences on any college campus. But what if there was a better, safer way to learn new or difficult material more quickly? What if "thinking caps" were real? Scientists have now shown that it is possible to selectively manipulate our ability to learn through the application of a mild electrical current to the brain, and that this effect can be enhanced or depressed depending on the direction of the current.
