Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN
On GPS this Sunday: Will robots take over the world? Probably not. But computers might take your job. Fareed looks at the remarkable growth in computer processing power – and why the human factor could remain indispensable.

“In extreme sports, something astounding has happened in the past 25 years,” Kotler says. “There's been nearly exponential growth in ultimate human performance. Nothing like that has ever happened before in history. So these guys give us a phenomenal case study for looking at flow. And the level of performance has gone up so much, we know that these athletes have to be in flow to perform. If they're not, as a general rule, they're ending up in the hospital or dead.”
Finally, what happens to the Union Jack if Scotland secedes? We'll show you some of the options.
