The standardization of the future

At the rate we are going, the truth is that the standardization of the world becomes an inescapable thing. This means that to make the management of resources as balanced as possible, we will have to normalize, limit and redistribute. For example, clothing, consumer products, food, housing and cars, among others.

Mainly, all consumer goods that have to do with people’s daily lives.

This could be confused a bit with communism/socialism and in part it is. But it does not have to do, necessarily, with a philosophy or with a basic political idea or as with a political dogma.

Rather, it is related to the idea of ​​considering a centralized entity that manages the supply and the number of options available for consumption. That being said, the current regulation of the “Market” will have to be revisited, to understand that we have limited resources.

For example, in the fashion and the food industry — 30% of agricultural land is used to grow food that will never be consumed. Also, 21% of freshwater is discarded for its production, according to the FAO.

All of the above leads me to think that a Global Roadmap is necessary to establish, define and specify the world’s production of what is strictly necessary for a dignified life.

Any luxury, excessive consumption and unnecessary goods will become available in the Metaverse.

We are replicas, of ourselves, at different levels of abstraction.

In the virtual world, that is, from our Avatar, we can satisfy our needs and consumer freedoms.

However, in the physical world, and in light of everything we have been experiencing, mainly global warming, the pandemic and several other issues, in my opinion, standardization becomes necessary.

Currently, “natural” monopolies are already being generated such as Microsoft, Google, Apple, Amazon, Facebook, among others. These companies must be fully regulated and responsible for providing us with technology, consumer goods and social contact, to inhabit this new standard physical world and populate the diverse virtual dimension.

Integrate and incorporate the virtual dimension.

Starting today — figuratively — we must begin to integrate and incorporate the virtual world as one more dimension of our experience as human beings.

The grace of the sixties — in my opinion — is that it became evident, for some, that to evolve it was necessary to integrate the spiritual. A lot of teachings were unveiled and allowed us to create an ecosystem to enable the current revolution of the virtual.

As a phenomenon, I feel like it’s the sixties of virtuality.

Today, the revolution manifests and coordinates in the virtual!; a moment in humanity where we awaken to a new dimension, and therefore, to a new species of Human Being.
