Annotation

Discusses the effects of radically increased longevity (700 years) and life in space habitats. These changes will produce a general slower pace in life, and a lower population growth. Education and re-education will be life-long, and the pattern of life will change a number of times. Children are likely to be raised in child-care communities by adults who, at that stage of their life, are particularly attuned to children.
