Margaret Atwood refuses to speculate
Here are some of the things you talk about (or, more properly, hear about) given the better part of an hour with Margaret Atwood.

Crows: Crows can tell the difference between a man whos shot at them with a gun and another person who has not done that. And theyll give the alarm cry when they see that individual person, with or without his gun.

Lab-grown artificial meat: Their problem is the texture. Its sort of mush. So theyre trying to figure out a way to exercise it.

The film Avatar: Victorian fairy painting writ large. The blue people with big ears, the light-up mushrooms its all there.
