  6. 6. In The Future... Memories won’t just happen as we move through life; they’ll be manufactured, bought, sold, and swapped. Welcome to the Memory Marketplace. Just because you haven’t traveled abroad doesn’t mean you can’t remember your trip to China. Just because you didn’t grow up in a happy home doesn’t mean you can’t fondly recall a joyful holiday with your family. This new era of memory manipulation will also signal the blurring between real life and fantasy. We can create the past we wish we had--no more hours spent complaining to friends or therapists. Imagine the psychic energy freed up by that. NEXT

Today’s temperament-tracking wearables will segue into brain implants that tweak your mood via electrical impulses and chemical delivery. They’ll be able to perfectly curate a mood-cocoon, too: Tiny electrodes will trigger video streaming that calms you after a stressful day; will brighten lighting to boost your energy; ! and will release chemicals that lift you when you’re lagging. ! With better moods just a jolt away, get ready for the Death of Depression. In The Future... NEXT

  14. 14. We won’t be wasting eight hours a night on sleep. Instead, our beds become docking stations. While our bodies rest and REM is orchestrated, we’ll be able to slip into custom-tailored dreams that have been produced like a big-budget flick. Or we can mine our subsconscious in moderated psycho-sleep sessions, in which worries and anger are worked through. Or we can let part of our unconscious go on auto-pilot, while other areas of our brain can be productive, learning languages and other skills via programmed modules. In The Future... NEXT
  15. 15. FUTURE TomorrowVision: The “24/7” life becomes literal as we can ! be productive even while asleep in our interactive CocoonBeds.

The solution will be extreme experiences that reconnect us with the most basic elements of our humanity: our senses. To remind ourselves that we are man, and not machine, we’ll turn to next-gen hallucinogenics, synesthesia sessions in which our senses cross-pollinate, and all kinds of intense sensations. ! In The Future... NEXT
  19. 19. FUTURE TomorrowVision: Sensory indulgence will be commoditized via products and professionals who give us memorable moments, from “spa days” that surround us with scents, sounds, and textures, to consultants who can induce otherworldly “trips” that punctuate our overly digitized lives. A Black Market will arise for new recreational drugs that push our bodies to the very brink of what they can handle.
