Yes, I'm with you on the dumbing down part..
But I'm one of those that sometimes hopes there's a bit more to it than meets the eye..
If we've got less things to do, like drive a car as it's done for us, then whilst we're sat there doing nothing, we could be inventing the
everlasting ice-pop or doing some knitting or on the back seat with person(s) of your choice..
Combine all of that with robotic implants and you'll soon be quite efficient at doing nothing, but a creative nothing.
So there we all are, full of implants being driven around the place automatically to go play "invasion of the zombie marsh lords" out on dartmoor in
real holovision 4D with realistic gun blasts and screams of agony... when suddenly.. something bad goes wrong..
and by bad, I mean 'designed' type of bad..
And we have to leave Earth...
yeah we got time on our hands and canjust about make enough ships to send us all out there to find a new home and carry on the human race.. taking
with us a lot of the old things.. like greed and corporate logos.
But we'll be doing it with implanted body bits, upgraded navigational systems, fully automatic food growers and a holodeck reliving the final years
of some terrible historical past moment in full colour with real blood effects..
That's where I see all this taking us..
Roger Waters said it best.. "this species has amused itself to death"
