My colleague Parmy Olson has an interesting post up about one artist’s vision of what humanity will look like in 100,000 years. Apparently, we’re all going to turn into the anime character Sailor Moon. The artist, Nickolay Lamm, also makes predictions for how we would look in 60,000 and 20,000 years. You know, if you have a short timeframe.
For what it’s worth, I think Lamm’s work is conceptually cool, but wanted to get on-the-record that this is dreaming, not science.
