Up to now, we humans have tried everything to change the planet that we all live on – such as wipe out each other, political systems, cities, religious beliefs, weapons of mass destruction, world organizations without any global clout, financial institutions manipulating power, money, elections, corruption, all enhancing inequality.
All are devoid of any asperation for peace and sharing. In fact, we have designed a world around the mantra ” Pay as you go ” which includes all aspects of life even the privilege of paying for your own funeral.
In the meantime, Earth is never stationary it spins at 1000 miles per hour.
As Galileo Galilei said, “Nature is relentless and unchangeable, and it is indifferent as to whether its hidden reasons and actions are understandable to man or not.”
The “New Earth” that people envisioned never quite materialized as predicted.
With the dramatic worldwide impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and now a new war in Ukraine, one could not be blamed for thinking what next rather than where next.
I suppose that eventually, we will reach a tipping point, after which we will consider 4D/5D things “normal”.
Maybe in the distant future “enlightenment”, will be more about knowing yourself as the consciousness that is witnessing reality.
Creating one’s reality for life and the planet that we truly love in which we are fully conscious and in full control over everything that we experience in our subconscious reality. Even so, we will still not be in full control of what happens to us and the environment we are in, because of our collective inability to agree that we are all the same.
So where are we?
The most distinctive aspect of our approach is the lack of ‘long-term’ action.
Longterm is the idea that because such huge numbers of individuals might live in the long-run future, and because we think everyone’s interests matter equally, approaches to improving the world should be evaluated mainly in terms of their potential for long-term impact — over thousands, millions, or even billions of years.
In the 1950s, large-scale production of nuclear weapons meant that a few world leaders gained, for the first time, the ability to kill hundreds of millions of people.
This was a striking milestone in a robust trend: as technology improves and the world economy grows, it gets easier to cause destruction on an ever-larger scale.
This is where we are.
When we look at the history of the human race, we see many examples of major moral problems that most people were completely oblivious to. These include slavery, the deplorable treatment of foreigners, the subjugation of women, the persecution of people who aren’t heterosexual, and the gross mistreatment of animals.
New transformative technologies may promise a radically better future, but also pose catastrophic risks, and mitigating these risks is presently all but totally ignored. Work on mitigating many risks remains remarkably neglected — in some cases receiving attention from only a handful of researchers.
With machine learning, the fate of humanity may come to depend more on the actions of machines than our own. This could lead to large, rapid improvements in human welfare, but there are good reasons to think that it could also lead to disastrous outcomes.
The problem of how one might design a highly intelligent machine to pursue realistic human goals safely is very poorly understood. You might think ‘why can’t we just turn it off?’, but of course, an intelligent system will give every indication of doing exactly what we want, until it is certain we won’t be able to turn it off.
Even if advanced machine intelligence does not get ‘out of control’, it is likely to be very socially disruptive and could be used as a destabilizing weapon of war.
There have been surprisingly few serious attempts to make such big-picture comparisons.
There are many global issues we haven’t yet seen investigated much at all. These are not always the biggest problems in the world — rather they are the issues that receive little attention compared to how important they are and how much can be done about them.
Different problems could be bigger if there are problems that humanity hasn’t even thought of yet. And it seems likely that we haven’t discovered all the serious global problems which exist.
You might think by now that world politicians won’t be motivated to act on the results of global priorities.
I would say that if anyone is looking at the state of the world our focus should be more on oneness and unconditional love for all existence with a distinct set of rules about what you can and cannot do.
So here is the good news.
Humanity’s superior intelligence is pretty much the sole reason that it is the dominant species on the planet.
The chance of great power conflict this century was around 45%, now it’s 100% and the chance of an extinction-level war was around 1% it is now with technology a lot more than doubters cannot dismiss.
All human comments are appreciated. All like clicks and abuse chucked in the bin.
