If Our Future is Digital, What Will Be the Biggest Advance?

Our world is full of screens. We keep them in our hands, purses and pockets, next to our beds while we sleep, and surround ourselves with screens on our desks and counter tops. What if all our screens, everywhere, were a two-way networked system that turns the Earth into a digital room with everyone in it? What if that networked system brought everyone the world’s best services, resources and knowledge based on what we do, as a normal part of everyday life?

If your future devices were continuous and serve you, your control over all your devices, and the continuous digital world they could open for you, could expand exponentially.

You switch between multiple screens. When you leave your old screen it stores “where” and “who” you are, then turns off. Your new screen recognizes you, turns on, retrieves “where” and “who” you are, puts you “there.” It is truly automatic.

All sorts of things are in front of you — with you. They could be people, services or places. They could be apps or software, digital content (books, TV shows, movies, music, recorded videos and more), games or live video from events worldwide. They could even be other devices and sources you control remotely.

Your digital life will always be on, always open, always yours. You’ll live in your “Shared Planetary Life Spaces.”

You combine anything into the digital “shared space” you want to inhabit, until you switch to a different one. Then switch again.

In fact, it’s so real that your “shared spaces” move with you across your screens, and become one of your realities. It’s the digital world you choose, where you can live. Always ready for you to use in whatever ways you want.

Much of your life is already you-centered. Next your digital life will let you become the person you’ve always dreamed of becoming.

Your digital life is a real life. Wherever you really are.

For billions of people all across the Earth, yesterday’s world isn’t succeeding well enough or fixing problems fast enough. Too many are stuck, educated, aware, capable and connected — yet locked in a limited future instead of free to soar.

Isn’t it about time that your reality was yours, continuous and under your control?

Something else future technology will offer is called Active Knowledge. What if the best knowledge, tools, resources and opportunities to succeed could be delivered as part of what we do every day, as we use our screens? Everyone could become able to perform as well as the best in the world.

Then, with a universal interface, everyone could surpass the physical world’s limits from anywhere. It won’t matter whether you’re in Silicon Valley or a small village in Africa.

You will be a global person who connects everywhere. The whole world and its best knowledge and resources will be local to you, at your fingertips, under your control.

Everyone could rise to the top.

Is it time to expand today’s limited devices, and expand today’s limited world? Should we begin a digital world where everyone could choose to be their best, where greatness could be normal?

This won’t happen overnight. But unlike any generation before in history, we know how to design and build our dreams.

One day greatness will be in our grasp. But rather than waiting, can we reach it now?
