The Good Future
There are two versions of the future.
- The Bad Future, described in shows like Black Mirror, is the realistic to cynical take on where the world is going.
- The Good Future, presented in shows like Star Trek, is the realistic to optimistic take on where the world is going.
It’s easy to be cynical today. You might feel like we’re living in the Bad Future now.
I still believe in the Good Future. The one with abundant resources and opportunities for all. The time and place where humanity becomes a multi planetary species and Earth is carefully preserved as our Home Planet.
I also believe that the way to win the Good Future isn’t any one Silver Bullet. It’s a lot of Lead Bullets. That’s why many of my ideas are presented in the form of startups or organizations that need to be built to solve specific problems. I am always looking for partners to build teams to chase these missions.
There are many people who profit today from the idea of the Bad Future. The Good Future needs its own leaders. We have to organize. We need to fight back. We each have the power to change and influence every part of our lives.
“Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact, and that is everything around you that you call ‘life’ was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. And the minute that you understand that you can poke life… and something will pop out the other side. You can change it, you can mold it… that’s maybe the most important thing.” — Steve Jobs
