A Future Worth Working Towards – by Michael Anissimov

It is a light writing on the future of several critical aspects required for a bright future: 

1) More space
2) More health
3) More water
4) More time
5) More intelligence

In all it was an interesting reading. 

Some lines I feel like quoting:

“150,000 die per day from age-related disease. 20,000 from heart disease, 17,000 from stroke, 3,450 from traffic accidents, 3,400 die from malaria. In a single day, over 1,200 people will be murdered.” 

“Why can we store only 4-9 items in working memory and not 27-30? The answer is that we live on an arbitrary planet and an arbitrary level of intelligence was reached by humanity which enabled us to build a civilization.” 

We should regard the intellect of Homo sapiens as a good first draft — but improvements on that draft are inevitable.
