Trond's takeaway 

The year 2161 is a long time from now, but not so long that we should relax and not worry about what the world will look like then. What will be different? What will be the same? And, to what degree do we get a choice in the matter? Many questions about about the future, but one thing is certain. New technologies will present both challenges and opportunities, and our biological environment will still constrain us to some degree, but also provide our refuge.
