"People are starting to notice that things aren't right. I believe we are meant to live in a completely different way than we do now. In a positive,
healthy, spiritually, true and green way.. I demand Utopia! "
Yep yep, we are. A very large portion of all 'work' is simple production. We only need such manpower because of our inadequacy in manufacturing
items from apples to CPU processors. With the right tech, all jobs, which quite frankly are pedantic and a wasteful use of human potential, related to
manufacturing could be eliminated. Now what else is there....teaching jobs could be eliminated via direct memory 'injection', most general
item/system optimization could be accomplished via super computers (smaller micro chips, greater banana production, greater solar panel efficiency), a
less cognitively corrupt society wouldn't need military, so many police, lawyers and judges, much of anything related to mental health....I bet 99%
of the world's workforce could be eliminated given the correct circumstances. The kinds of jobs that would be left would be things like art,
theoretical physics (and other cutting edge sciences), societal management (some kind of government), and any numbers of things that people insist on
doing themselves (creative works).
While this would be a great world for me since I find work personally meaningless and could use all that extra time for self-improvement, exploration
and discovery.....I believe most of humanity would in time react very negatively. I mean sh*t....most people on this planet are WAITING TO DIE,
thinking that 69 virgins or some crap like that is awaiting them in 'heaven'. I think work is the only thing keeping them occupied enough to tame
their insanity. Also realize....most people do not have a very solid reason to exist. Take away work, and they would become very bored...perhaps
thinking the only purpose to life is material self indulgence. But guess what? Our minds are damn good at equalizing pain and happiness. As time
progresses, a certain degree of happiness or pain takes more and more input to sustain. So these people that think owning 100 Ferraris or having sex
with a hooker all day long will make them truly happy? Well, all of that 'effort' will deteriorate in time, and to sustain it they will
quantitatively increase their stimulus input. In time though, either extra input will no longer have an effect as their conscience will be
'saturated' with the stimulus, or they will demand so much to maintain their naive struggle for satisfaction that others will begin to suffer from
their greed. Either all of these people will engulf and destroy each other, or they will limit and the 'stimulus deterioration' will catch up to
them, rendering all that they have 'gained' as good as what they started with. Then they will wonder, 'what has this all been for?' They may
continue to live their excessive lives, having been no better off in the end than a man with only a loaf of bread and tree to sleep under, or they
will begin to reduce the stimulus input which will suddenly put them at a 'negative' and cause them suffering. In time the pain will balance out the
happiness....and their raison d'etre of raw material gain will be destroyed...leaving them empty and in an existential void.
Needless to say...a single world society like that would never work out...only some of the populace could 'handle' it. But then, how do you select
and segregate those who can take it from those who cannot? Say you had perfect judgement and could mass analyze humanity, where would you all go? It
does not seem as if the world today would accept a sudden proclamation from a group of intellectual rebels that Antarctica is now theirs. Such a
society would need to be set up with a degree of power backing it...financial, political, military...to sustain it. Humans have a tendency to regress
and throw away all that they have gained...see the burning of the Library of Alexandria as an example. This group would need to be powerful enough to
resist the barbarism of the remaining portion of the world. And then...would it be responsible enough to control such power? The ability to laugh at
the entire world's armed forces would demonstrate a significant degree of technological/political prowess. If everyone in the society had such
power....then surely the 'relegator' could not have chosen many individuals, as I do not think many individuals can utilize such a thing
accordingly. Such a small number of people could hardly be considered a 'society'. And, if a large number of people, some of which are less
'trustworthy' present, then surely only a central group could possess that power. Would they use it wisely?
As for the entire planet as a whole reaching such a level sustainably....that will take a long time!!! I give humanity, 1000 years MINIMUM, but I
could be wrong of course. Though my experiences with people so far have not been very positive.
Maybe the obsidian monolith will return?
