With the continuing increase in technology and medicine, what will the new life expectancy rate be?
They don't say "Millions who are alive today will never die" for nothing.
Will the AIDS epidemic and cancer be treatable with a simple medicine?
They already are, in toto. But the solutions are not commercial so they sit amongst other suppressed inventions.
Will the government control the reproduction rate of its residents?
Some governments will, some won't. The US may have reduced from 4% of the world's population to less than 3%.
What kind of food will we eat?
Regular crops, plankton and textured foods. Meat will have been rendered far too inefficient quite soon.
Will we be able to teleport from place to place or will we still be driving land bound vehicles?
There will be no need to move from place to place all that much, but it will be quite simple to hop into a small craft (3000-4000 capacity), point
skywards, and touch 40-50 minutes later in the city of your choice on the opposite side of the planet.
How far will space exploration have taken us?
Mars and Saturn, and unmanned craft will have shown us signs of other planetary systems.
Will the monetary class division be replaced with mental profiling (i.e. will our power and social standing be measured by our IQ)?
No. The rich will be richer still, and there will be more poor people (with a higher standard of living than today, but still relatively poor) to
support them. There will be some applications of true meritocracy - not IQ-based at all - in one region that has seen major upheavals and another
failed socialist revolution.
Will we still have wars?
If yes, what kind of weapons will we use?
Economic and social, and in the case of a few states that did not learn, sticks & stones, to quote Einstein.
Will the US' seemingly never ending glory finally cease?
This is only perceived in the US, so the question is somewhat rhetorical.
