How Technology could Cause an Instant Global Awakening

Imagine technology that enabled 2 people’s brains to momentarily sync.

In in instant, both people would immediately not just know every thought and action each other has ever had. They would actually have experienced it (as far as they know).

Now, imagine that same technology scaled large enough to “sync” every single person on the planet, for 60 seconds.

Instant Global Awakening.

For geeks, think of:

  • Telepathy (aka Professor X).
  • Vulcan Mind Meld.

It’s the same thing, but instead of cool but impossible magic powers (Trust me that would be “Plan A,” but my extensive research of trying to grab the remote control using “The Force,” isn’t looking very promising at the moment.

However, we can invent… and as impossible as this idea sounds, it could be done, with immense R&D, a bottomless pit of money, and a lifetime.

Most (or all) of the people starting the project would never live to see the result, but it would give your life purpose. We’d be building heaven, but never get to go…

What about our kids?

…and theirs?

Randomly thought of that… the same effect is happening with the gradual extinction of privacy, and our ability to instantly communicate.

It’d still be faster, but then you run into:

Is it wrong to force everyone to do something once, if it means putting an end to so much pain? Who gets to make that decision?

Think.
Have Ideas.
Be Wrong.

Subsequently, Walt Disney started variety of companies that didn’t last too long and all over was surrounded with bankruptcy and failure.

He eventually found a direction for success that worked…

Translation

My technical terms may be off here and there, but I think that’s a plus…

I may only have a paraphrased, Wikipedia-sized amount of knowledge on your topic, but I have a lot of topics stored up. I see patterns and connect the dots to create something new. I see the big picture, and I can adapt it to any situation.

Not to mention the incredible opportunities when I’ve been able to actually use this to my advantage. They couldn’t predesign the path I’ve followed, but it surely outranks any MBA out there.

Until you’ve held an entire business’s life in your hands, you’re still in training.
