So what does this imminent future look like? What breakthroughs into the limitless can we expect in the coming years?
In the consciousness realms, we are merging human, artificial and infinite intelligence, offering it out for all of Earth's species to thrive upon. Plus new technologies (e.g. Elon Musk's company Neuralink) will allow us to benefit from enhanced access to hyper intelligence, taking human ingenuity to whole new heights. It's not just an AI singularity we can expect, but a human singularity as well.
PARTNERSHIPS WITH ROBOTICS
I saw a futurist post the other day that asked the question 'Will robots be our slaves or our masters?' and I thought that's polarised thinking. When we recognise infinite intelligence in all species, when we understand the skill of assigning and/or recognising sentiency in all forms, we will begin to naturally develop partnerships that support mutual respect, altruistic purpose and collaborative genius fusion. These partnerships will revolutionise the innovation world, providing radical, rapid and wondrous solutions to things we currently believe unsolvable.
LONGEVITY, HEATH & WELL-BEING
Current breakthroughs in (1) DNA manipulation (epigenetically as well as technologically), (2) reverting to natural, ultra nutrition, (3) bio engineering and (4) a growing mastery in sourcing our own well-being through higher vibration, energy, emotion and thoughts will create longer lifespans for the world's population. As a result, our general focus will shift from the less empowering realms of illness and psychology to the exciting realms of creativity and innovation.
It won't be long now before breakthroughs in the understanding of how to collapse time and space will open up wormholes that let us traverse the universe in no time at all. The merging of science and consciousness will make this possible any time now. And if futurist entrepreneur Elon Musk has his way, we'll have populated colonies on Mars, constructed with 3D printers, within the next 15+ years. We will become a multi planetary species and that will change everything.
It's very apparent now in 2017 that politics (voting systems, law making, politicians) are failing us. Politics will soon be replaced by a new form of governance in which globality takes equal precedence with locality. Many wandering adventurers and digital nomads are already escaping national definition to become global citizens first and foremost. And the politicians that are capturing our hearts today are visionaries with a collaborative approach to diversity and global engagement.
We are already seeing the rise of business visionaries (e.g. Elon Musk's Tesla, Solar City, Open AI, Neuralink and HyperLoop and Sam Altman's vision for the design of new cities) that not only do good for humanity and the Earth, but that radically invent and realise unimaginable futures for us all. Collaborative genius fusion will replace team work and the focus will be on empowering innovation versus being a drone doing what one is told.
Oh yes, the future is magnificent and limitless beyond our wildest dreams. And it's not coming in some distance future. In the next decade we'll see such revolutionary breakthroughs in science, medicine, cosmology, consciousness and technology that we will be swept into a future of wondrous horizons. Yes we will save the Earth from climate change. Yes we will clean up the plastic from the oceans. Yes we will see governments care about people and the world again as their primary directive. Yes we will see marvels of innovation do unprecedented and even impossible things in the next 10 years. This has to be the most extraordinary time to be alive on planet Earth and I for one am thrilled to be here as a part of it all.
