Life 2.0 v2

Evolution is dead. The future is ours to choose.



During the past 100 years science and technology have shaped life as-we-know-it, almost beyond comprehension. Today we stand in the foothills of a new revolution. Life extension, face transplants, gene therapy, designer molecules, stem cell organs and submarines in our veins!? The first person to live to 1000 may already have been born.

New science and an emerging set of 21st century technologies, embracing NanoTechnology and BioTechnology, are about to alter the way we live and work in fundamental ways that we cannot yet imagine. Technology is empowering us to shape our own direction.

There will be bewildering new choices in personal health and wealth. Opportunities for business will explode. Those who are prepared to see them as such will turn these opportunities into economic performance - at a personal and national level. The detractors will be many. Where do you stand?

The future is ours to choose. So, where do you want to go?


This module is passionately presented by one of FutureWorld's Network of Gurus.

You may remember the first time you used a telephone or a computer; the changes created by electricity and mass production; the power of the electronic media and the Internet; the way advances in medicine have doubled our life span; the way we have become less rooted to national boundaries - we have become global consumers and digital nomads. Interconnected individuals with unprecedented personal power.

Throughout the past century these changes in our lifestyle and workstyle have created massive new economic activity, new products and services. Taken together, they have spawned entire new economies. Economic cycles that we see moving before our eyes. But this, life-as-we-know-it, or Life 1.0, was just the curtain raiser!

Today we stand at the starting line of a new revolution. New science and an emerging set of new 21st century technologies, embracing NanoTechnology and BioTechnology, are about to alter the way we live and work in fundamental ways that we cannot yet imagine. There will be bewildering new choices in personal health and wealth. The choices will not be easy. Detractors will be many. The debates will be endless.

Opportunities for business will explode - those who are prepared to see them as such will turn these opportunities into economic performance - at a personal and national level. Where do you stand? Are you ready to choose your new future?

Are you ready for the Next Big Thing - are you ready for Life 2.0?
