From Wednesday through Friday I gave just over twelve hours of my attention to a presentation about a new tech company.* They talked about their game plan for the future. I wanted a better understanding of the application of tech terms like block chain, dataism, “dataistic”, and crypto-currency. Where better to learn than in context — from listening to nerds talking?
The speaker for that company, who looked to be 30-ish, retired at 27 because he had invested wisely in what was having the most influence (Facebook, Amazon, Google…).
But this new company, he emphasized repeatedly, was committed to making a difference in the world beyond just reaping profits and power (like Facebook, Amazon, Google…). The examples he offered – like being able to detect a chainsaw in the Rain Forest or provide insurance companies with the actual experience of the flooding disaster – seemed to support his belief.
He based his talk on the future predictions of a teacher, the man who wrote Homo Deus. Briefly, he noted that the human agenda has changed from famine to happiness, from plague to immortality, from war to divinity. The new human agenda includes:
- Becoming a multi-planetary species
- Happiness (religion, spirituality, acceptance, letting go of desire), Immortality (life extension, beyond the doubling from 40 years to 80 in the past 50 years), and “divinity” (enhancing our powers as a species).
- Dataistic networks with the belief that data should flow freely.
All the speakers in that live-stream event were brilliant young guys, hand-picked for their minds and expertise. This past year, the company has grown in a field where others have not, perhaps because each person’s reason for leaving his great job to join the company seemed to echo the main speaker’s purpose: to do good in the world.
Maybe I only heard what I wanted to hear because I’m so focused on “conscious people” and “conscious events.” If so, you can count on me to write “the rest of the story.” We’ll just have to wait and see.
Till next time:
Please be kind to everyone you meet for we all have our hidden sorrows. ~Tzaddi
