INTRODUCTION TO) THE SDGS.games people play
Not everyone agrees but in the 80 years my family has been collaboratively surveying the future sustainability exponentials of our species, we have seen valuing sustainability's compound opportunities and threats as primarily an educational and mathematical mapping question.
We have been assuming that the era 2025-1945 is extraordinary in that 100 times more etch has been compounded each decade. Earlier in 1936, My father was 13 still home schooled at Brtitish Embassy in Moscow when he first started being curious about how fast tech was changing, as well as nuclear's potentiallyterminal puzzle. Not only was world war2 looking inevitable but a madman looked due to be on one of the winning sides. Norman's father probably had as much intel on Stalin and Hitler as anyone. Grandad had been doing graduate studies in Religion at Heidelberg when world war 1 broke out. Instead of a life as a seric his linguistics skills made him useful as a minor spy from world war 1 onwards; that explains why dad had grown up in British embassies across Europe..
The teenage Norman wasn't sure of the multiplier but clearly tech was compounding at a rate far faster than when engines first appeared in Glasgow 1760. Soon dad was spending his last days as teen navigating air planes allied bomber command out of Burma, Surviving world war 2, dad was determined to explore system design optimistically. He found himself in the right places to do so in the last class of Keynes at Cambridge, invited to intern at The Economist in what became a half century job, meeting von neumann in princeton 1951-all conformed 100 times was the multiplier any journalist exploring old and new millennium humanity needed to value most. Dad's second foreign assignment at The Economist was to be the only journalist at the 1955 birth of the European Union 1955
In this last of my family's 2025 reports on odds of human sustainability it seemed simplest to organise chapters by the UN's 17 sustainability goals. That way if you are most concerned with some of them we hope we have mapped some clues of where first to look for solutions . We will alsi do what we can to update www.2025report.com and related blogs with readers feedback. However in line with the challenges of valuing machines humanly enough - may we introduce five sorts of web mindset which determine how communities of people network as a function of how much tech the have access to
- web00 no access to electricity
- web0 acess to electricity but no access to digital sharing
- web 1 personal computer networking but no connection with data mobilised from every gps on the planet
- web 2 dimensional screen or single number manually analysed governance and spaces for innovating
- web 3 full 3 dimensional 5 human semse natural blending of ai and himan intel integral with real time data interactions from everywhere, every human and every other natural lifeform
