Are there humans in the far future?  What do they look like and would they even think about us?
Perhaps they genetically modify themselves on a continual basis
If indeed they find it necessary to inhabit physical space
Since by then a grand unifying theory would surely yield access to non-spatial, 'astral' planes
Greater than gods ~ Demiurges who refashion the very fabric of reality ~ free from pain (but not torment)

Having mastered the transmutation of elements, they will terraform Mars and Venus
While Mercury and Pluto shall house interstellar observatories alongside wormhole jump-gates
Jupiter's atmosphere could be activated via nuclear fission as Arthur Clarke predicted; materializing Lucifer
Our second sun might bestow life to Europa's glacial oceans, making Neptune and Uranus vacation hotspots
Saturn ~ seat of true superpower across limitless light years ~ mining asteroids and rigging comets as scouts

Yet even given such advances those humans will probably endure despair in isolation
Searching every neighboring star system but never finding their equals or superiors
Exhausting natural resources as well as spreading themselves too thin
By then they should start spying on us past time's intransigeant veil, trying in vain to answer back:
"Make the most of your little Earth, because it holds the only mirth we here can now recall."
