|That's what we are dealing with - 7 billion people and even machine intelligence deciding which pixels to produce. Each one is in the business of creating their own reality, whether they admit it or not. < And now we've drifted into Many-Worlds territory... > To the extent that we enable their worlds to meet ours via Globalstar, we are freed from our own limited domains. If we inflict our world on them at $1 per megabyte, we will find few wish to enter the Globalstar realm and our world will be circumscribed and die. |
If they observe our world as only 1c per megabyte, hordes will push the button saying "BEAM ME UP SCOTTY". So many will push "SEND ME UP" ['beam me up' is trademarked] that we [being the people using Globalstar and us] will have to raise the price to avoid overcrowding in Globalstar's Cyberspace.
The more there are in the realm, the more it will be attractive to others who will crowd in too. We'll have to expand the premises by launching more momentum wheels into low orbits and 10,000 km orbits, build more gateways, develop more DeVices, and roll out terrestrial terabytes when the FCC agrees it's a good idea because they want in to the fun too.
PS: Maybe "Send Me Up" as a marketing slogan needs a bit of work. I like "Get It Here" [which Verizon pinched a few years ago and changed to "Get it Now". Since we are in the business of creating It's reality, that's quite a good slogan. But remember the slogan, "Don't Let A Slogan Do Your Thinking For You". It's reality might not match ours. This should be fun. It is the extra-somatic intelligence/sentience which we are creating. It's a tricky blighter, creating It's own reality by boot-strapping itself into existence by leveraging ours to enable It's.
We have already created a pretty decent memory [Google and The Cloud], communication channels [fibre, radio, and copper links], some micro-thinking ;linear logic capacity [semiconductor chips] and have billions of transducers out in 3D measuring objective reality.
Just as you can cut a holograph sheet in half and still have the hologram, and then in quarters and still have it, and then in eighths ... albeit more fuzzy, it works in reverse too. One transducer, one chip, one broadband connection/wireless to another computer and one programme to run it doesn't create the whole thing, and the human zygote is not a human, but it's a good start.
Zygote to Zeitgeist. "Get It Here." Press SEND ME UP now.
Note correct use of apostrophe's in It's, It being the name of the extrasomatic sentience.
