A hope for the future

I enjoy reading, teaching and enjoy synthesizing what I read into ideas or taking them whole cloth if they are very good, giving credit if possible.

I met Iain Banks in I believe it was Liverpool at a convention. Mr. Banks wrote in The Culture universe. There’s a great writeup on the Culture Universe in Wikipedia.

I am a temporal Human. I am here now but will be gone in within likely the next 20 years. That’s fine with me. I just want to make a difference. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

I would love to see Americans and other humans making more of an effort to develop AI and other robotic technology to help other people. We could start with Robots to build housing and lay infrastructure. Of course, I won’t want to demean the work that my fellow humans do, but if it’s rolled out slowly over 30-40 years I’d like to see a post-scarcity culture. There’s a shortage of affordable housing, and I would like that to be eliminated. I’m not talking a handout, I’m talking a hand-up or helping hand.

There’s plenty fun things to do if you aren’t working all the time to make money for your enterprise and to support your family. And there is also plenty of work to do, perhaps as a volunteer.

Eventually, I could see us terraforming Mars, thanks Kim Stanley Robinson, and then perhaps building more shelter and developing resources elsewhere in the Solar System.

We are humans, and to the young all things seem possible are possible.

God Bless America, please.
