oneIdentify an outcome normally attributable to magic (immortality, invisibility, free treasure, secret super-knowledge, love potion, mind-reading, unquestioning slave-minion) that we cannot accomplish but which can be made to seem at least not logically impossible.
twoDeclare that this actually not-possible but apparently not-impossible thing is actually inevitable by saying that "technology" will deliver it. Say, in twenty years (trust me on this, it's always twenty years). Congratulations! That's the hard part done already, your first paragraph is complete.
threeNow, talk about how awesome magic would be if it were real for the rest of your piece.
four -- optional, advancedIf you want to seem a Very Serious think-tank futurologist, you should pretend at some point that conservatives are "opposed" to this magic not because it's stupid magic and not serious science or science policy at all but because they are too timid and scared of the awesomeness you bravely embrace.
conclusionYou can now repeat this procedure robotically in article after article until death (and, sorry to be the one to tell you this, but you will die because magic is not real).
