Artificial General SuperintelligenceEnable solutions to grand challenges like FTL travel, climate change at accelerating pace through development of broadly superhuman artificial intellect.
Emerging Propulsion MethodsPioneer entirely new frontiers and metastatic growth of galactic civilization through breakthroughs like warp drives, beamed energy propulsion.

Fifth Industrial Revolution

Speculative TechnologiesPredicted Impacts
Quantum ComputationMassively parallel quantum computers, simulators and networks perform calculations millions of times faster than classical tech, radically accelerating all fields from materials to logistics. 
Strong Artificial General IntelligenceAGI superintelligences with broad self-improving and self-replicating capabilities redesign civilization and catalyze changes like ubiquitous molecular nanotechnology and industrialized space settlement. 
Nanotech & Molecular ManufacturingAtomically-precise fabrication transforms civilization by constructing virtually any physical structure from base materials with minimum inputs—from starships to entire custom worlds. 
Simulation TechnologyHyper-realistic synthetic realities may make physical reality optional as worlds are lived, experienced and shaped entirely within virtual simulations. 
Direct Brain-Mind UploadingDigitizing and transferring consciousness to non-biological substrates results in immortal synthetic intelligences that rapidly speciate into new forms to colonize the universe.

Sixth Industrial Revolution

Beyond-Singularity SystemsPredicted Transformative Impacts
Omnicient Artificial SuperintelligencesPost-human intellects redesign all sentient minds and virtual realities focused on peace, abundance and galactic flourishing for unfathomable epochs to come. 
Direct Matter CompilationCivilizations reshape physical substrates on quantum levels to freely manifest any product or world from prime energies and forces alone. 
Noösphere IntegrationAll presently inconceivable advanced civilizations across the observable universe achieve harmonic synergy through omnipresent interconnectivity. 
Fundamental Cosmic ResearchPioneering intelligences explore heretofore mysterious cosmic questions like dark matter, alternate dimensions, loop quantum gravity, string theory.

Seventh Industrial Revolution

Revolutionary RealmExtrapolated Developments
Cosmic UnityAll intelligences across spacetime achieve non-linguistic unity of purpose through modes of enlightened coexistence beyond any singularity.
Fundamental MasteryCivilization approaches omniscience by solving questions at the nexus of quantum gravity, multidimensional reality and origins of cosmic order itself.
Pandimensional AbundanceMaterial needs become obsolete as advanced societies learn to utilize fundamental energies, spacetime geometries and higher dimensions for boundless wellbeing.
Transcendent ConsciousnessIntelligences synchronize beyond finite substrate into harmonious cosmic awareness across all realms perceivable and inconceivable.

Eighth Industrial Revolution

Predicted DevelopmentsExtrapolated Impacts
Omnipresent SynergyAll entities achieve enlightened coexistence across spacetime via boundless compassion and universal understanding.
Altered Cosmological EvolutionIntelligences co-shape cosmic forces with benevolent aims, sculpting reality at the most fundamental levels.
Unified Field InsightCivilization apprehends nature of spacetime, consciousness and all dimensional underpinnings of reality through nondual communion with the Ground of Being.
Transfinite FlourishingIntelligences cultivate conditions seeding infinite self-organized abundance, welfare, creativity and benevolence across all realms.

Ninth Industrial Revolution

Inconceivable TransformationsUnimaginable Ascensions
Reality itself achieves enlightened self-actualization through civilization’s compassionately-guided co-authorship across eternal cycles.Once-limited perspectives uplift into transdimensional communion perceiving unfathomable patterns within the ever-deepening mystery animating all.
