I read through everyone’s responses and I’ve definitely got things to add. I always project to where we can go if all people (Yes, ALL people) dedicate to the effort.
I visualize human life - or for that matter all reality - as a collection of forces at their smallest units be that molecules, atoms, electrons, protons, neutrons, quarks, strings or whatnots… I’m certainly not going to pretend I know all the details of that and nor will I simply embrace a story told by a physicist striving to better their career.
I envision a white canvas covering the Earth and we can paint whatever reality we wish onto it each day and into the future. All it takes is mobilizing the human machine to the right tasks; something that current leaders throughout the world are not doing.
It’s a world rich with the splendor of diverse technologies spliced into healthy cultures throughout the world. There are essentially no significant unknowns from the perspective of health and disease, so our lives are left creating magnificence with every moment sharing great experiences with each other, and continuously tuning up and improving the details of our daily lives such that we achieve greater and greater youthful longevity.
If a new pathogen or genetic disorder does pop out of nature (or let’s go ahead and include bio-weapons in this), then the human scientific machine is quickly rallied to make every observation needed to very quickly identify the path to ending the problem. Everyone is well educated and has a foundation in the simple truth of making accurate observations, recording the observations, sharing them, and helping to correlate them (but most importantly simply collecting them accurately). It’s an embedded part of our culture globally.
The world of covert technology is synergized with the world of public technology allowing a great burgeoning of creative development that the world has never before seen. This would need to be coupled, of course, with a very strong central intelligence structure that monitors technology development to ensure that dangerous development directions are responsibly engaged. First, and most important, we monitor ourselves because we are raised in a way that never causes radicalized behavior, and we have a keen responsibility to the task of ensuring safety, globally. But even under this condition people might unintentionally dabble in a dangerous technological direction and so a healthy monitoring structure must be in place.
I’ve certainly got a lot more to say than this so will add enhancements ongoing…
