    Homo Ludens — "playful man." The next human species is taking shape.

    "Doing nothing – simply savouring the miracle of our existence in this world – is a luxury afforded only to the respectably retired, or children."

    "Futurists such as Pang advocate a world in which technology is not a straitjacket but a force for liberation, enabling "us to be more productive in ways that allow us to reclaim more of our time." Pang quotes approvingly from Bertrand Russell's 1932 essay In Praise of Idleness. “Modern methods of production have given us the possibility of ease and security for all [but] we have continued to be as energetic as we were before there were machines," Russell wrote. "In this we have been foolish, but there is no reason to go on being foolish for ever.""
