All I was trying to do - is to imagine a fan of possible futures. But any thing remarkable foresight could turn into absurdity due to some unforeseen event or invention. Remember, reading predictions hazardous to your health! I'm almost sure of dates and terms. Events and technical achievements are planned today, and unless there is nothing extraordinary, it will happen and then, as I predict. Intuition does not fail me, although many predictions about a hundred times, I would prefer to make a mistake! ".
