Earthfamily Needs

Wouldn't it be great.

Wouldn't it be really cool, if you had the most advanced cell phone in the world in your possession.

And wouldn't it be cool if this cell phone was actually a communicator, camera, GPS, blackberry and whatever else.

And wouldn't it be neat if you flipped it open and said "operator" and immediately you were in touch with your personal earthfamilyalpha operator.

"Yes OZ."

"I need a lift to 54th and L."

"Car, Taxi, or Public".

"Taxi"

"Done. Yellow. 2 minutes"

"Thanks."

"Anything else."

"Yes, pick me up in 50 minutes and get me to London tonight."

"Working."

Wouldn't it be great if you had someone to call who would take care of your transportation needs like a personal secretary, but infinitely better, because this transportation service knows where every rent car, every cab, every bus, and every plane in the world is all the time. And since the operator knows your position, it can dispatch a cab or coop car to your coordinate without a blink

And wouldn't it be great if your operator knew where every hotel room is, and the availability of every earthfamily room and apartment in any city of any geographic state. I guess it's a little like the operator in Matrix, except you don't have to deal with Mr. Smith.

Why do we leave ourselves all alone in this jungle of corporate predators and government agents? Why don't we protect ourselves?

Because we haven't created the entity that can provide that protection.

It's not their fault that we don't protect ourselves.

Why do you think they call it a jungle?

Earthfamilys are large coops, call them cyberstates if you will, where people band together in the cooperative model of democracy and human decency to provide themselves the goods and services they need in an advanced technological society.

The Earthfamily operator has everything.

It has every product, every service, all the entertainment, all the movies, all the music, all the food, all the maps, all the legal services, all the computer support you will need. It is an "On Star" on steroids. It is your data central. You and your other Earthfamily members can trade and barter inside the earthfamily system.

In the Earthfamily, you don't run out of money.

Your Earthfamily Bank Card will work in any ATM all the time.

In the Earthfamily, you don't spend your life trying to make money.

You live your life like a human being who is in a very big powerful family.

Think about it.

Didn't some part of you always wish you were part of big powerful family.

A family that could get you out of trouble and across borders.

A family that could get your son into that school.

A family that had the clout to make others take you seriously.

A family that would stand up to authority in your behalf.

Wouldn't be great if you had a family that was moral,

A family that had principles that you knew were right.

Wouldn't be great if you had a family that came from all over the earth.

And numbered in the tens of millions.

Such global families consisting of normal people would change everything.

No longer would corporate hegemony be the rule of law.

No longer would government be without a check and a balance.

No longer would the powerful place the powerless under the

heal of oppression.

As Citizens of the Earth,

We can create new inventions of social contract that transcend

the geographic state.

We can create new inventions of social contract that can radically change

the way we work, the way we live, the way we transport our bodies.

We can reform our concepts of ownership in our homes and vehicles.

We can redefine the very foundation of this consumer culture

and reshape it to reflect our best natures, not our worst.


We can.

We really can.

So in this system how do you get lost? How do you escape from the family if you want to? I am already a ludite and can't make my cell phone do all it can do and actually don't want to. The concept is wonderful on one level and way to scary on another. And besides I never use a taxi unless I'm in some third world country where cell phones never work.

This is the response of a car loving luddite. I like this.

I am trying to weave a tale of potential here. Of Course C. L. uses his car all the time now, christ! we all use our cars all the time. But if he knew all of his options, and when it is easier, cheaper, and more efficient, you make different decisions. That said, don't get stuck on the transportation aspect, it is only part of a much bigger picture and thanks for the comments.

This is very visionary and not going to happen.

This is very very good. And it can happen, in fact, I think it will. OZ is seeing the future here.

OZ is on target here. If you see anything close to a singularity type scenario in our future, something like this is absolutely where we must be. You may not like it, but what's your point?

I don't see how this helps in a true singularity event
