This is Mia Ruby. What is her future?
Her future starts now, just as it does for the other 300,000 or so babies statistically destined to be born in Australia in 2012.
Her future starts now, just as it does for the other 300,000 or so babies statistically destined to be born in Australia in 2012.And it will be very different to the onemost of us might imagine. If current trends are anything to go by, today's babies will inhabit a world in whichflexibility and adaptability will be key. Their life trajectories will be whorls ofactivity spinning off into periods ofretraining and reinvention. Their education will be interactive,ongoing and probably much morefun than yours. They'll have fewer children but worklonger hours, rely more on robotsand less on God, and travel morefor work and less for play. They probably won't own a house,but they may well crack the mysteryof consciousness. And unlike many of us, many of themwill be around to greet the 22nd century.SPECIAL REPORT: INSIGHT
