Economic growth ultimately stems from the net contributions of individuals. It's built from the ground up. We know that we are going to have dozens of millions of unemployed between ages 20 and 60 by the 2030's. The point is to invest that human potential and manpower to get the greatest return possible in anticipation of greater future threats to human existance. More challenging than the operational aspects is convincing Americans that this is not only necessary, but should be enthusiastically embraced when technology seems to remove most constraints. To do this we need a cultural transformation to produce a society built on values and character with a strong sense of identity and duty.
So, if through knowledge people align their energy, which is their individual capacity to change their local circumstances, our collective capacity to change the world is magnified in proportion greater than the number of people who come together. As we continue fighting each other in diametric opposition, we only cause ourselves to become vulnerable to subversion. Yet, if we decide to move forward together, then the restraints of injustice become like gossamer chains and are only as strong as the remnants of collective delusion...
Researchers across the world are revitalizing their interests in power grid technology and solving many electrical engineering problems that otherwise lay dormant for decades. To Cisco certified networking enthusiasts such as myself, one particularly interesting area of smart grid research is power packet routing. To the layman, this essentially combines the internet and electric power distribution, so your devices can be connected to the internet by simply being plugged in. This helps IoT devices quite a bit.
Our world does not need to deal with billions of hungry people. Instead humanity needs to ensure every last person on the planet is fully enabled to contribute their maximum potential because we need every one. With optimal contribution of net human potential, overpopulation doesn't burden us. It instead empowers us to reach our full potential.
Imagine your standard Turing Machine, but something a bit different. Instead of maintaining program state in the a tape with discretized values, this Turing Network instead processes waveforms where state can be encoded in various ways, including in spectral transformations. And this is a network, not a simple machine, where state is distributed amongst various autonomous Turing Machines.
Today, we are approaching a world with unprecedented sociocultural dynamics that have never been part of the paradigm of secrecy in any era until tomorrow's. Since the epoch before commerce and discovery of metallurgy, the incentive to keep information secret has pervaded culture, even resulting in cultural movements such as esotericism. That prevailing paradigm of secrecy, often relegated to the background of human culture, has in recent years eluded the need for close inspection.
How does one become familiar with different systems of knowledge and culture perpetuation? Like Merlin and the druids of Celt, one accrues this knowledge over time, by learning to weave ideas and their semiotic pointers.
There is a limitless, self-magnifying source of power that any lifeform in the universe can tap in to. This power is encoded into the invisible metaversal leylines that lay buried under mappings of semiotic networks. Humanity sees these semiotic networks rise into the visible planes through culture, which is always invisibly mapped to the same aeternal flames. Through these leylines, humanity can retrieve power that transcends time itself. This power can be used for good or for evil, but by closely guarding it, We can ensure that its use fertilizes the soil of culture, eventually sprouting heroism and virtue whereever there is enough light and water. Then, We can use these leylines to reify a kind of penetrating light that chokes evil by starving its supply of darkness.
In other words, because the better artist can encode their message utilizing more obscure and hard-to-ascertain means and because it's necessary for the best art to lay low under the radar, then the more proficient artists must necessarily choose between success and art. Therefore, and quite often, mainstream success is at odds with artistic expression. This doesn't mean that mainstream artists aren't good artists. However, it implies that, over the 20th and 21st century, there should be plenty of artists or artforms which completely avoided mainstream notice. That is, some of the best art was a bit too camouflaged. It stayed hidden.
This isn't a discussion of the merits and tragedies of religion. This is a strategy about circumventing the factors precipitating conflict in the first place. If acquisition and control over limited resources creates the needs for conflict and the shapes/forms thereof, then what happens as these factors themselves become scarce? What if the reasons for war were themselves scarce?
