"Around 2010 the world will be at a new orbit in history. We will translive all over this planet and the solar sphere - at home everywhere. We will be hyperfluid: skim on land - swim in the deep oceans - flash across the sky. Family will have given way to Universal life. People will linkup/linkout free of kinship and possessiveness.We will stream ahead propelled by a cornucopia of abundance. Life expectancy will be indefinite. Disease and disability will nonexist. Death will be rare and accidental - but not permanent. We will continuously jettison our obsolescence and grow younger. At 2000 plus ten all this will be the norm - hardly considered marvelous."
F.M. Esfandiary, (1981), "Up-Wing Priorities", the June 1981 issue of Future Life magazine
