If we invent edible Flubber, there may come a day when we can survive by eating Flubber and also create a sustainably green economy building breathing Flubber buildings or entire towns out of it and even one day give Flubber consciousness too and expand it to a multiverse.
If we invent teleportation, there may come a day when real estate no longer matters as the majority of our time will be in the 'etherverse' and we will have solved the 'distance problem' and will need to rethink time. Something to think about.
If civilization is able to connect itself to itself via neuralinks, into a global consciousness we would be able to anticipate each others needs even before they are communicated and make life peaceful and stress-free. As so much pain comes from not being understood.

If she wins tonight brilliant Beijing born Chloe Zhao (Nomadland) may be the first Chinese woman having won a Golden Globe to win an Oscar.

China all but banned the movie as she made critical comments 8 years ago saying "there are lies everywhere"...
2/ I've previously highlighted the absence of Chinese villains in US movies

motivated by (1) US rational economic actors to sell into a $9B market and not be banned and (2) China control + censorship of studios + theaters
3/ Impacted by covid surely(and China reopening quicker) but in 2020 China for the 1st time became the largest movie market in the world.

The 8 Best Picture Oscar nominees made $35M in theaters vs $700M in 2019 while China made 4.5x normalized numbers with $3B in tix sales...

1/ This is the #1 reason why cold war with China is inevitable

The Left should be outraged by Muslim concentrating camps, human rights abuses and environmental disregard. The Right by expansionist military actions, hacking + corporate theft.
2/ US solidarity won't come from Kumbaya.

We are a diverse deeply divided people with 1-2 generation long respites of internecine animosity redirected from each other to a common enemy...

1940s: Nazi Germany
1980s: Communist Russia
