Wait! It isn’t communism! As I mentioned in my article titled Let the Robots do the Work!, artificial intelligence will raise our mental etiquette to such a degree that we’ll awaken to an awareness of Natural Law, and our symbiotic relationship with it–a monetary system will seem as dumb to us then as having dial-up phones would seem to us now. Do you think these ideas are too futuristic to bother with? If so, perhaps look into Elon Musk’s Neural Lace, and/or listen to Ray Kerzweill speak about the future of technology. As well, you could check into physicist and futurist Dr. Micho Kaku’s position on the future of artificial intelligence. Better yet, I’ve attached a conversation about just that, between Dr. Kaku and physicist Max Tegmark. Okay, but what about scarcity, you might ask? There can’t possibly be enough food in the world to be freely accessible to everyone, you might think.
Contrary to what many people are aware of, we are currently in a post-scarcity age. The only real manifestations of scarcity in today’s world are in low-income homes where family and individuals living together feel the tension, and likely engage in battles over who’s food is whose within the home. That is a systemic problem created by today’s economic paradigm. For brevity’s sake, I’m not going to list sources for that claim, but I will link you to Peter Joseph’s films Zeitgeist Addendum and Moving Forward located in the Relevant Books and Media section of the site. Another concern that many people have is how an access-based economy would work, and who would run it? While I am not a supernatural mathematician able to figure out all the possible probabilities, I can offer some ideas.
For starters D-Wave’s 2000Q quantum computer can processes information 100,000,000 times faster than classical computers. Yes, that’s one-hundred-million times faster. Quantum computing is perfectly capable of scanning the earth’s resources relative to population, and quantum data centers could be strategically placed around the globe. Moreover, programmed AI could run the data centers–programmed to function using the scientific method as checks and balances. Okay, what will be the role of humans in such a world, free of mundane work? Well, not only could humans submit ideas to the AI overlords (just kidding), but they will be freed up to spend time with their families, travel the world, and explore their creativity and passions, to name just a few things. What would you do?
