Technology answers...  

One of my greatest reasons for optimism about the future is the flood of new adaptations of novel technologies to surprising problems.

I don't think we can begin to envision the scope and ingenuity of such ideas, nor evaluate their impact.  Which makes any long term prediction or analysis suspect.

Technology is not perfect. Take for example the foundation for our modern times, i.e. we live in the Henry Ford methodology, and everyone is contained to a specific, narrow task in life. What can happen is that when we lose our wider vision of how to live, we can suffer from surviving when the foundation is shaken. Consider that when we have cars that drive themselves, our only alternative will be walking since the car driver will be extinct. Don't misunderstand, I am all for technology, but we must walk circumspectly to avoid tragedy.
