      When one writes about the future, there is inherent and obvious speculation, as no one can predict with certainty what will come. That being said, this article reflects a combination of what would seem logical based on the evolving science and what, in the opinion of the author, is needed for the sleep field to grow and prosper. Whether any of this will turn out to be accurate, time will tell.
