Science Fiction Age

In April 1999, Robert J. Sawyer was asked by Science Fiction Age magazine to provide some brief predictions for the next millennium. Here's what he had to say:
In a thousand years, we will have reached the limits of the possible. If time travel is possible at all in this universe, we will be doing it; if faster-than-light travel is possible at all, we'll be doing that, too. I'm becoming increasingly pessimistic about the likelihood of extraterrestrial life — if it exists at all, anywhere in the universe, I suspect it's very rare — but by the end of the next millennium we won't be alone, regardless. Rather, we will have created all sorts of new lifeforms, including other radically different intelligent beings.
