LISTEN NOW! Can you imagine what 2020 is going to be like? What about the year 2099? We have witnessed so much technology advance exponentially, to hear what Ray Kurzweil’s predictions are may surprise you, or they may not. He is the author of How to Create a Mind: The Secret of Human Thought Revealed. In regards to our everyday shopping experience, there will be nothing normal about it based on how we presently see shopping for goods.
When Kurzweil was asked this very question, he responded by saying, “Well, I think that you’ll be walking into a virtual store; and most products will be virtual, even food and clothing.” As we have presently seen the introduction of 3-D printing, this will be greatly advanced, according to Kurzweil. “We’ll be able to download a design for clothing and then print it out.”
No more will we travel to a physical location of a store in order to try on clothing. That’s old news. “We’ll be able to take a three dimensional scan of our bodies and actually see in 3-D, an avatar of ourselves, and see how the clothes look.” Not only will the interaction of shopping be entirely different, but so will the interaction between people. “Once virtual reality goes inside our brains, and that will be here by the late 2020’s…the computer will actually create the environment, and then we can be virtual actors in a virtual environment.”
The everyday occurrence of eating won’t be the same either. “We can eat in a virtual environment and have that sensual experience because our brain is receiving these signals as if they were coming from the real world, but it’s actually the virtual world.” Kurzweil continues to explain that we will not be limited to our very own bodies but will have different bodies in the virtual world.
As the conversation switches gears to discuss currency, the recent development of Bitcoinis discussed. Kurzweil expounds on the topic, ‘So, we won’t need to handle currency or even physical devices around, we’ll be able to pay for things virtually.’ Kurzweil continues, ‘The nature of currency is interesting, I mean, what is currency? It’s an agreement system between people that everybody respects. Even terrorists who have very different views of society, and mainstream society; everybody respects money. It’s a big system of agreements that we have…Certainly payment is already going online.’
In the area of energy, Kurzweil highlights a staggering realization regarding solar energy. “Solar Power is doubling every two years, it’s already over 1 percent of our energy. People say ‘Oh, 1% is kind of a fringe player’, but they are ignoring the exponential growth. 1% is only 7 doublings away from 100% and its doubling every two years.”
Presently, people are getting more and more caught up about new technology and the information that it provides. But, sooner or later, we are going to have to choose to remain where we are, intellectually, then choosing to go the way of allowing ideas such as virtual reality to be entered into our brain. Just because we have information doesn’t necessarily mean we have wisdom.
Considering these times, the Lord gave Greg a dream of being in a cubicle surrounded by other cubicles. In this environment, he was diligently working at a computer. He suddenly realized that this data was being entered into the computers was used to control people. None of the workers were allowed to talk, but each cubicle had a whiteboard. As Greg received this revelation of the information, he began to write on his whiteboard, “This is the number of the beast and his number is 666.”
Instead of seeking information, we must seek the wisdom of God through an abiding relationshipwith His Son, Jesus Christ. We are in the days that we must consider these advancements with wisdom. Revelation 13:16-18 reveals, “It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.”
It is imperative that we know and discern the voice of the Father. If we do not know His voice, we cannot walk in His ways and will fall. Hear the full exchange with Ray Kurzweil about the coming developments in technology, the importance to understand information versus wisdom, how to have an abiding relationship with the Lord, and so much more.
