interesting, but i think the same way we have forest tribes, 1st century barbarians and high speed trains on the same planet, we will have an amalgamation of those utopias

i certainly hope we terraform mars and colonize the moon, and that some form of transhumanism will allow us to live much longer lives

now if we could just dispense with things like state mandated religion/morality classes in schools

Vision number 7 reads like the most fantastic and exciting prediction of teh future I've ever read. That even trumps the ordinary technological singularity envisioned by Ray Kurzweil.

It's funny though that number 6 is given as an equivalent to religious conceptions of the afterlife, when they often are closer to number 7 actually.
