Rethinking Humanity: Episode 7 Crashing Up, Crashing Down. Two Dystopias by RethinkX

“Blind to the deeper process of change, humanity has no idea it’s on the brink of epic, existential transformation.”

The Rethinking Humanity video series is based on the book, Rethinking Humanity: Five Foundational Sector Disruptions, the Lifecycle of Civilizations, and the Coming Age of Freedom by James Arbib and Tony Seba, published by RethinkX.

We are on the cusp of the fastest, deepest, most consequential transformation of human civilization in history. During the 2020s, key technologies will converge to completely disrupt the five foundational sectors that underpin the global economy, and with them every major industry in the world today. In information, energy, food, transportation, and materials, costs will fall by a 10x or more, while production processes an order of magnitude more efficient will use 90% fewer natural resources with 10x-100x less waste.

The knock-on effects for society will be as profound as the extraordinary possibilities that emerge. For the first time in history, we could overcome poverty easily. Access to all our basic needs could become a fundamental human right. But this is just one future outcome. The alternative could see our civilization collapse into a new dark age. Which path we take depends on the choices we make, starting today. The stakes could not be higher.

“At this unique juncture in history, we can recognize not just the staggering dangers of collapse, but also the incredible possibilities for breakthrough.” Episode 7 of the Rethinking Humanity series by @RethinkX paints a stark picture of the paths diverging up ahead. For the first time in history, we have a choice. If we choose wisely, we can chart a new course to a new Age.

But if we cling to the comfort of the old ways – papering over deepening cracks with band aids – we could crash down: the old industrial system could disintegrate before the new production system emerges. The other possibility is that we crash up: a new production system emerges within the old organizing system, leading to a dystopia owned and controlled by a tiny number of tech conglomerates, nation states and elites. Both dystopian outcomes would forestall the Age of Freedom. To avert them, we urgently need a new, decentralized way of understanding the world, while distributing power and ownership in societies.
