Well, hold your hearts.
You’re to get to know not only the most precious person of my life, but also the most Precious Girl on the planet on whom each of your “Future” rests as long as you’re on Earth. So precious that the first thing I promised her was Vanity Van. And courtesy her, you the humans are getting a Solution as good as a Zero. A Zero number four in the service to the Humanity. This owes to one dentist from Bangalore. And you’re being introduced India’s own Madam Curie.
So to know her, you’ll have to know the device Zero and some Zero Sciences, and then of course a little bit of me! And you might have to graze over long description. Hold for that. Madam Curie are we talking about. Bound to be intelligent and sci-fi. That Madam Curie behind the Zero number four!
And more than a Love Story its a Breaking News.
What is a Zero?
A device to count?
Yes, that it was. But what beyond that? Pause for a minute and think reverse.
You have today a similar “Zero Problem” where the entire world is stuck at and all clueless. In 2018, the whole world is stuck at one pain point just like thousands of years back they were stuck at 9. A problem that everyone has but the answer none has.
Today the world is sitting at the top of mountains of Debts wherein Global Debt is 2.5 times the Global GDP. A whooping 67 million of refugees globally just alongside war-zones, which means one in every thousand human is a refugee. This alongside only those battle field where battles are being fought live as we read this. Total near refugee kind of lives, absolutely homeless and on pity of Gods to survive every day- the count exceeds 2.5 Billions. And 70% of the world is off board, beyond bounds of the bus Economy. Because 80% of the world’s money is with the top 5% of the population and money jumps around the hands of top 30% only.
Money supply gets very very scanty beyond the top 30%, scarcer than water droplets. And humans don’t trade those who don’t have money as you all know. So 70% of the world left to rot and die till malnourishment kills them automatically.
Same was the problem before Zero as well. More than 70% of the population in disparity in desperation. Because none has an answer how to go beyond 9, because none could count.
Let me extrapolate how grave this problem of Global Debt is. What a debt of 2.5 times the GDP means?
As long as debts are not settled, you’ll have conflicts. Why money doesn’t move beyond one-third, because no amount of money is good enough. You always debts to repay. And Debts can be paid only by profits.
Assume that no transaction of the world is loss making, all yield to profits, say 15%. And they all go to serve debts without any leakage. You’ll find to serve just the existing mountain of debts is at least 16 times the debt servicing capacity from the most optimistic stand possible. Factually its more than 50 times. Which is not sustainable. You can only go for a war, acquire countries and lands and resources, sell and then serve the debts. Which the world is doing as reflected in number of wars and in the count of refugees. And then you realise that war is actually more expensive than the debts itself, hence multiplying the problem. Which is going on continuously since the World War.
Nobody has a clue to deal with this.
To survive, only 5 things are needed. 1) Air 2) Water 3) Sand 4) Honesty 5) Sanity. First three for shelter, thereafter Honesty drives the trust and Sanity drives the drive. First four exhausted beyond repairs, as you see from whales to crows to elephants to kangaroos to cows, everyone dying each day. The stock of fifth lies half a decade, until machines have not penetrated into lives and thus onto work floors.
Nobody has a clue again. The whole world stuck at one point!
Same as the world before Zero. Right?
Everybody in wars over exchanges. Humans not knowing to count, hence no ways to trade. Only the influential once could afford luxuries. Else all stealing and quarrelling. You would have 500 sheeps, hundreds of sacks of grains, but can’t sell because you can’t account because you can’t count. Things working on understanding, which gives only disputes and hence fights every other day. War of Egos and conflicts of ignorance.
Somebody amidst the chaos rolled a small wheel into numbers, to get the steer the process of counting. Came in place value system automatically and they could count anything, as much they could. Humans steered away from the war of disputes. (And now you know why the shape is Zero is Round. Zero was the world’s first steering wheel!)
To sum up Zero is a device to steer the world away from the problem it is stuck at. The mother Steering Wheel.
You need a similar Zero today. Some device to bail you out from the sequence of wars. And such occasions have happened only three times in the past.
The first was Zero itself. Second was Currency when you couldn’t resolve the dispute of Barters. The third came in again, from wars itself like all zeroes, but not very long ago. This was when we couldn’t identify whose body is whose, whether our side or the enemy side or which enemy side. On the borders of India and Pakistan. We needed to have visibility on dead bodies at a granularity as unique as the DNA strands itself. Came in Aadhar- The UID. The device through which you could have human reconciliation at human levels, on every unique human basis. The Zero number three.
(Its a pity that Indians don’t know how magical is this Aadhar. Say, when you were born, you were born with a placenta- which outsourced your headache of getting supplies of food and waste to your mother. Your job was only to grow and evolve. But after you were born, your placenta was cut off. You’d love to have the same arrangement in the practical world as well, where in you need not bother for your supplies while you’re bothered about only growth, so that you could grow freely. If you there was placenta, it will need a serial id to have a pipeline for your supplies. Isn’t it? That is the UID number. A very eligible Zero that you’re not aware of )
Fast forward to 2018
You’re staring at a time bomb to blow. Air. Water. Sand. Debts. And nobody has a clue. Entire world stuck.
In fact the fireworks have begun already. All around. You’ve likes of Syria, Gaaza, Israel by the Mediterranean, Zimbabwes and Congos and the Sahara by Africa, Venezuelas & Cubas erupting like volcanoes in Latin America, Mexico & Canada in the North America, European Union disintegrating, that beginning right with none other than the big BREXIT. Terror attacks even in the love lands of France, lands like Philippines in the far East, of the muslim world, lesser said the better. You’re already in the thicks and thins of action. A Point from where only a Zero can save you.
The problem because you still don’t know to count. They have still not learnt to count humans and money. They still don’t know what the device is money.
“Money is not money making more money. What it is Money empowering more many, many humans as many as many humans possible. A networking device to have all on board the bus Economy- every human on the same page of Human Evolution. A networking device that induces Midas touch. Midas touch of Empowerment. That is Money”, says this Madam Curie.
Which you humans are yet to decipher.
And the same was Zero. When only few influentials could reap the benefits of economy, a device to empower everyone who were bereft of the power. Zero the person gave in, immediately he said “Vasudhaiv Kutmbakam”. The World is one family. You forgot and invented problems, to come back to square one. You need a new Zero again!
A new device to have all on board. What would be the device exactly? What nature?
If you rake in brains, you’ll find there’s only one purpose an animal has. To live your defined biological span without doing harm to the Earth. You have one rider. You can take other life as long as its food. That’s the only one way to not have conflicts. But things go haywire as you turn human. You want to outsource many of your chores to others to your pleasure. And you can talk more. You’ve more length of time. In such an adaptation, you’ll conclude there’s only one purpose of human life, and the only good way to live human life:Being Edison . That is every human hand manufactures some utility useful to other human hand. Should you get better you build instruments that plug disasters that happen in the dark.
In the long run, survives he who is the fittest. And the fittest is he who has utility. To be fit, everybody will have to be an Edison. Your hands manufacture utility of use to other human- the only condition that fits the bill to survive. And the problem statement of today’s Zero- “How to turn Everyone Edison ?”
And here the result: The Sane Observer – The world’s first Knowledge Network. An internet eco-system which transactifies your mental wealth where in Transactifying is mobilising a property of yours into tradeable, like the banks do to your monetary properties. By virtue of various instruments from saving accounts to n number of deposits, demat accounts, stocks & funds and so on. Similarly instruments that converts your mental and intellectual properties into executable wealth.
But its not so simple. Had it been everyone else had been a Madam Curie!
Let’s see what she has in store for you. Take a little deeper dive.
The world is changing. Meat has been produced in labs, and can eyes be scanned by AI as the key diagnosis point. The old is gone, rendered obsolete and irrelevant. And we know the brutal pace. News of Bloodbath is a norm. Enterprises lose billions in a day and are there days opposite of festivals, days of gloom and dooms. Days of Restructurings and Disruptions, Layoffs and Wind ups. Hundreds of thousands of jobs shaved off per day per quarter as the world transitions from Fossils to Data. Beyond the naked eyes where was darkness yesterday is now today there Data. And where is Data is there a machine controlling controls. Is Data the new Oil- the new medium of life. The new lubricant of transactions and the new fuel of economies (The Data).
Today its not only the man who’s getting out of jobs. The meat produced in labs will render many goats and cows out of employment as well.
As the old evaporates to give in to the new order, as machines learn being human powered on power of being machines at learning and pitched against humans who are only humans at learning, has this transition thrown up a gradient of utilities. Professions of the old are being set for extinction, one by one including the essential, non-substitute-able professions as godly as Doctors and Teachers and Engineers. And hence for the rest of humanity as well.
Has spun off a massive epidemic of being clueless and hopeless. More catastrophic in territories of less preparedness like Asia, Africa, South Asia and the rest of the world in direction towards making of Venezuela of 2018 -per kilometer square of human habitation. Has begun a bloodbath per km square as the new Epidemic. Bloodbath is the New Epidemic.
What’s the cure? What’s the antidote ?
To keep pace with the world. To stay relevant. To keep adding new capacities. To know the right. To know right by reflex. The more we dig, we’d realise constant skilling and re-skilling is the final answer. Evolution on daily basis. Growth per day. That not in the dark. For you can’t compete machines, the need now is to be Human again. From being machines of the old order to being the Humans to the machines of the new– The Cure.
Hence the Knowledge Network. A network of Knowledge Accounts. Give your Knowledge an account number as good as your savings account. And in future machines as good as Executive Assistants like a CEO.
“Every man was born a CEO until trained to be Gatekeeper”, states this Madam Curie.
Imagine a day wherein you could have Madame Tussauds type replica of yours at home, which is also intelligent, who hears to you, who takes down your orders, does the hard work of knowing the world and telling you about the world, who talks to you in physical space more like the inner voice of yours but more than the inner voice of yours.
Your inner voice can be your life-coach. Right? The one you desperately need but you don’t have. This is the machine that this Madame Curie needed and is being built.
In the third worlds of poor america where they’re dealing with dumb Alexas and Siris and Google Assistants, here in the land of Zero, a new Zero steering you out from the swamp of Bloodbath. Giving you the tool to monetise your mental wealth, on the path to give you a machine which is as good as a childhood friend till you live. A reliable friend to fall back to.
Thanks to Madame Curie!
PS: The Sane Observer– the name is dedicated to this Madame Curie.
