Here’s another great idea that came to my mind after sleep. lol! Its a very weird fact but all this crazy future ideas come to my mind after sleep. I think I need to keep a journal of ideas like leonardo da vinchi.
According to HPC, each of our human brains is about a 40 petaflop and 3.5 petabyte super computer. Considering that we have about 7 billion people on this planet. This would mean the total computing power of nature is about 280 zetaaflops (21 zeros) and 24.5 zetta-bytes (21 zeros). Even if there was a redundancy of 10 and we used 10% of our brain computing power. That is still much much better than the total computational power of all electronic devices. Is it possible to harness this computing power of our human brains for the benefit of all life on this planet ? how ? think ?
The next big question is how do we connect us all using existing technology such as the internet, mobile connected devices e.t.c I believe the Internet is humanity’s biggest invention, and If we could somehow figure this out, it would be humanity’s second biggest invention. How do we architect such a system and ensure that its open and fair to all ? How do we ensure that everyone participates and does their parts ? How do we setup a reward system ? how do we harness the knowledge and computing power so that we could eradicate all poverty, have a great quality of life for everyone, have a sustainable future, remove borders and hatred between nature’s best invention (humans) and form a complete map of human knowledge and continually keep on pushing the edges of reality to innovate at the maximum rate possible. The biggest challenge for our species remains “can we send ourselves into the outer-space and conquer other inhabitable planets and make them habitable”. We’ve spent far too much time fighting within ourselves. As the most intelligent species, we are sometimes the most stupid as well.
Knowledge leads to Happiness
In the history of the world, from the ancient asian civilizations, middle east, greek, romans, european, british, USA, USSR e.t.c All of them took the lead of ruling the world when they were in serious pursuit of knowledge and harnessing the knowledge for power. The real problem of poverty in africa is that intellect is not valued there. I was born and raised in kenya. A huge population of africa does not have access to education, if it does then very little work hard to understand the problem of education and accelerate it. Very little think about the great ideas of future and problem solving. Everyone likes to state the problem of politics e.t.c But solving it ? most responses are “I don’t think we’re that smart”.
In the history of humanity, whoever had the best universities, best entrepreneur programs and an open way for this guys to convert ideas to reality and harness power ruled the world. Whoever had the strong urge of working together and pushing the limits of reality, made it come true. Everyone somehow assumes that its the government’s responsibility to make things come together, but how can we rely on our governments whose core purpose is sometimes to bash the opposition. I would like to propose to the australian government to draft out the current big social & economic problems, put it on the internet, reward and hire anyone who wishes to solve this problems. Make this process as transparent and open as possible to accelerate its rate.
Stephen Wolfram Alpha’s book “A new kind of science“, and many others have very much outlined that much complex things are usually built by connecting little things and making them work together via “specialize and exchange” as noted in the TED.com talk “when ideas have sex“. Right now I am in deep thoughts of how could I create a mobile/web app that would make ideas horny and make them have sex as much as possible and produce baby ideas who could then battle on the mammoth problems of today’s world. Anyone wanna help ?
