V.O.D. – Secret to Great Investments?

Virtualization of Desires is a pretty damn interesting topic:  What it means, simply, is that the objects of human desires in the bricks and mortar period of industrialization be beginning to fade.

Not that the “new age” will roll in overnight (as Elon Musk just found out); there are bumps in technology.  But what it drags behind it is a transition period that we’re fast approaching defined as when humans are no longer required to do much “work” – and so economics will have to adjust by coming up with a different basis of compensating people.

This morning, a look at what the charts are hinting as, where all this virtualization leads, and a call for a technology equivalent of the Environmental Impact Statement.  Because until we get our economic plans in order and until government adjusts, the Singularity might become synonymous with Collapse.

We label this “The Melt.”

  1. Fascinating stuff, George!

    It reminds me of that commercial where they had an HDTV set up to look like a window in an office where they conducted job interviews, and then showed an incoming meteor on the screen to the horror of the interviewees.

  2. if i was desperate for food i would follow the dog packs and take the remains of the animals bones and put them in my solar powered crockpot with whatever else you might suggest,and it would be a good time to look at all those books i purchased when times were good ,on eatable plants and roots and bugs and how to open a can of soup without a can opener,but just a rough surface rock laying around,and how to make water appear out of nowhere in a hole in the ground when you wake up and (how to have a beautiful woman make you breakfast and then afterward desert ) just kidding of course :) george oh you are so lucky but everyone knows when a depression hits ,people have to pull together and make more babies ,that is what all the animal and bug kingdom does when faced with extinction ,no more needs to be said , but comments are always welcome

  3. i am breaking the rules again this time on commenting more than twice but You know the early bird gets the worm – go out at night or early morning in the dark , take two flashlights ,one with regular white led light and the other with red led light ,when you shine the white light on the ground you will see the worms scatter back into their holes ,but when you shine the red led light on the ground ,the worms dont move and they are out mating on the ground all stretched out looking about 2 feet long when mating , this is the perfect time for chickens to get a feast of worms -hint the early bird gets the worm, and in a depression situation ,worms can make a nice gritty yogurt ,,HAVE A GOOD DAY :)

  4. Boy – That to me is really kind of scary – like a decentralized THX-1138……..holo-glasses for all the little kiddies to be programmed
