Well said. Asimov knew science and extrapolated.

There are many examples of writers with a grasp of science who could see where technology led.

Mostly Hollywood and TV just borrowed and had a lot of fun with the ideas.

Although , I donít think we will be seeing travel backward in any time soon Mr HG Wells .

One root point for that can be found in Isaac Asimov's Foundation.
