Dear Samantha, and others, a primitive brain naturally has a poor grasp of
possibilities. Primitive brains naturally grasp reality poorly. A good example
of how brainpower limits comprehension is this: imagine a human trying to
explain to a cat or dog the nature of nanotechnology and how nanotechnology
could make it easier for humans to travel to the moon or to Mars. When
super-intelligent-AI is created we will be like cats or dogs; we cannot fully
comprehend future possibilities but with imagination we can see how our
primitive worries will be completely solved. We will not actually be like cats
or dogs because we will evolve rapidly. From dogs we can transform into gods.
My example of the free Ubuntu software verses pricey MS software was an example
of how we are moving towards Post-Scarcity... software is easily replicated and
the limits on replication are decreasing, we are approaching limitless software
replication: post-scarcity. When millions of people download a video each day
from YouTube we can see how that free data is transcending scarcity; there is a
plentiful amount of data but it is not yet Post-Scarcity. When MNT-3D-printing
becomes widespread, very competent, then millions of people will download
products or food, which will be constructed via EXTREMELY efficient usage of
resources for very little cost, this will be another step towards Post-Scarcity
but similar to the free operating system Ubuntu it won't actually be
Post-Scarcity but merely a step closer.
You may doubt that we will ever create a brain 12 orders of magnitude faster (or
greater) and generally more powerful than our own brains, but when we do we will
not be creating something different to ourselves we will be reinventing
ourselves, we will become super-beings, we will transcend our human beginnings:
this concept of Transhumanism can seem weird but in 10 or 20 years people will
have a better grasp upon how humans are evolving. We will become super-beings if
we want to. Sometimes it can be difficult to see how technology advances quicker
each year and it will probably only be with hindsight that people look back to
this point in history as a crucial period regarding accelerating change. The
growth of processing power is accelerating. Our grasp of the world is
accelerating. The Singularity is coming. INFINITY is entirely possible. Humans
who wish to remain unchanged/primitive will be free to do so. There will no
scarcity of universes where everyone can exist however they desire. Do you think
the creation of matter and universes is difficult for a
supremely-intelligent-being? Creating a universe would probably be as easily as
creating a sandwich if your brainpower is sufficiently large. There will be no
scarcity of matter. Virtual reality will become indistinguishable from reality.
Virtual worlds and real worlds will both be utterly controllable to satisfy the
desires and needs of anybody and everybody. At one point in our history a
primitive computer was the size of an entire room but today we have much much
powerful computers that are comparatively tiny. As computing power grows our
computers become smaller. The concept of a Jupiter sized brain (Mbrain) is a
primitive notion because massive computers in the future will not need to
actually be physically massive.
Humans can do impossible things. From putting men on the Moon to overcoming
Black slavery and electing a Black President. We continually change the nature
of what is possible. Humans can grasp reality mistakenly, therefore we may think
our Earth is the center of our solar system or that Post-Scarcity is impossible.
We are evolving. Keep an open mind. Reality is a bit like the scene in
Ghostbusters where a giant marshmallow man is created.
You create the future via your desires. Your expectations skew you perceptions
thereby forcing you to create reality according to your expectations. Really...
you should read up on the concept of self-fulfilling prophecy. Expect utopia.
There are no nefarious people prohibiting Post-Scarcity. You are responsible for
reality. You create reality. The only limit to Post-Scarcity is yourself. If you
choose to see nefarious people in the world then that is your choice... Imagine
you are asleep dreaming but instead of dreaming about pleasant things you dream
about monsters, pain, and suffering. Dreams are a good example of how people
create reality. Theoretically we have the power to dream whatever we want. Each
night we could dream about the most fabulous utopia where we enjoy ultimate
pleasures. Our dreams are totally inside our heads but we fail to appreciate how
we have the reality to control our dreams, therefore we sometimes dream about
unpleasant things. Our failure to control our dreams is similar to our control
over reality. The world is exactly the way you want it to be (subconsciously).
The world is your dream. I choose to dream of utopia. I know you are not
nefarious, nobody is nefarious, and I know you will soon believe without any
doubt that Post-Scarcity is possible.
I know you will believe that reality is infinite, without any limits whatsoever,
because your mind is limitless. The positive feedback will feedback to create
"eternal positivity" and the positivity will be immensely positive. The future
will be infinitely positive.
Regarding my name I would say, what's in a name? A rose by any other name smells
just as sweet. Utopia is the sweetest rose.
Believe! Dream! Seize the limitless power of reality! I know you will soon begin
to believe in utopian Post-Scarcity. You can see it happening by 2045 at the
latest... I know. I can see your mind changing because I see my own mind
changing. I can see you dreaming. This is our dream. We dream of utopia! This is
our reality. This is science. This is technology. This is existence. This IS
reality. You are alive.
