Nadia: How long do you think our civilization will last?
Wan-Sze: Well, the chance of extinction seems pretty high. I would be surprised if we make it another hundred years.
Kasim: Possibly, but I am more optimistic. I think we are destined for the stars!
Nadia: I think it is likely post-humans will supplant us. Homo sapiens have not done such a good job of protecting this planet. Perhaps another species can do better.
Wan-Sze: I like to think that even if our civilization decays - which it inevitably will - the core seeds might help some other civilization with different beings.
