In accordance with Board Decree No. 4/2033 about "Cultural Normalization of Organization Values to the Public", this document has been made available for public view. ENCRYPTED NOTICE: All members are instructed to read the "2033 Guidelines for AI-Based Hyper-Personalized Popular Perception Control" before endorsing these policies.
ABSTRACTION.
We know why you're here. It is not only you who lives with the craving and knowledge that the old ways serve us no longer. You want something new, something different. Something that can upend this world of crisis and anger into a great opportunity.

Resilient Acceleration offer you two things: a solution that both solves and is realistic.

It is said that we "hate" the useless class. The Homo inutilis. The freeloaders. The massa carnis. The irrelevant 65%, whose insufficient cerebral capacity is incompatible with this brand new world of acceleration. We do not hate them, for we do not fight out of hatred or prejudice. We say that the Homo inutilis are not "lesser", but "other". Not disposable, but of a different disposition. Not worthless, but of other value.

Yet it is naďve to take things for granted, as we will prove. The moment has come to share our vision of the future, that awaits if we Homo deus do not rise up and seize our rightful place in the world.

Keywords: ageing, automation, immortality, unemployment, climate change, peaceful global depopulation.


This is a personal excerpt from our boss Arka Pasca, Speaker for the Resilient Acceleration.


INTRODUCTION.
This chapter will be concerned about the obvious necessities and motivations behind the Resilient Acceleration. We will remind you about the ultimate mission and purpose of this organization: to save the world.

Quick takeaways:
  • Due to immortality, the world population will grow to 15-16 billion by 2100.

  • Due to climate change, the global carrying capacity will fall to 1 billion by 2100, killing 90-95% of humanity in the process.

  • Due to automation, 60-70% of the global workforce will be rendered permanently unemployable by 2060.

  • Due to the aging population and mass unemployment, global welfare spending will reach $150-200 trillion this decade and will only increase.

  • Due to bloated welfare spending and the collapse of the fossil fuel industry and cheap manufacturing, around 50-60 national governments now face total financial collapse within the next 20 years.


PROBLEM 1: Overpopulation
Automation, immortality, and resource cap are three of the most defining issues of the 21st century. They are both inevitable and troublesome. Let N be the size of population, r the growth ratio, C the carrying capacity, and t a function of time. The old logistic model of population growth is given as

Eq. 0.1.

Notice that when NC (the population approaches the carrying capacity), dN/dt → 0. Overpopulation, according to this model, is a problem that solves itself. However, this model hides within it at least two fatal caveats:

  1. Growth ratio r is not given as a constant. It is a function between the birth and death rate, two non-static parameters.

  2. Carrying capacity C is not an automatic magical barrier but is directly caused by resource availability and environmental capability.

Immediately, two facts become obvious. First, consider the overpopulation of the 20th century. They are largely caused the rapid decline of death rate when birth rate stays the same, that is,

Fig. 0.1. Thompson's Demographic Transition Model details how overpopulation happens

As the figure suggests, the market economy, education, and contraception eventually reduces the birth rate and reach an equilibrium, but not before the population increased by 3.6 billion in 50 years, leading to unsustainable pressure on the environment. Now, the world faces again the exact same problem: the collapse of the death rate while the birth rate stays the same. You might recall equation 0.1. Let b be the birth rate and d the death rate. Then

Eq. 0.2

By definition, immortality will greatly reduce the death rate to very low levels and thus boost the overall growth rate to apocalyptic levels. In fact, we project that without restrictions on this technology's proliferation, our advances in birth rate suppression will be offset and the population will grow an additional 5-6 billion people. Which bring us to the second point: the carrying capacity. We often forget how the carrying capacity maintains a population size to a fixed equilibrium. We will remind you that this is only achieved through horrific famine and disease, taking form a self-stabilizing logistic graph where the population grows past its carrying capacity, resulting in starvation that kills all excess, drops below the capacity, and then rebounds again. Obviously, this cruel population control is not optimal for a functioning civilization, so humans exploit the earth, build agriculture, and engineer their own carrying capacity. Yet this practice is ultimately unsustainable. We can only exploit so much before a certain threshold is crossed and the earth is ruined. We mean, the reduction of the global biospheres into inhospitable wastelands will obviously reduce the carrying capacity, that is,

Fig. 0.3. Rectified population projection, taking into account immortality and climate change

We will remind you that this apocalyptic Linkcarrying capacity collapse by 90-95% is not arbitrary. Rather, it is based on research, and will potentially be irreversible. Throughout the last decade, the useless politicians have failed in addressing this existential crisis, and we are now expected to cross the tipping point of 2°C. "Hothouse Earth", the end game of a cascading positive loop where the temperature stabilizes at Link13°C above pre-industrial level, now has a probability of 40-50% chance of occurring. Mass loss of permafrost, collapse of rainforest ecosystems into seasonal forests or savannas, decomposition of ocean methane hydrates, increased marine bacterial respiration, loss of sun-reflecting polar ice sheets, and most importantly cloud loss are caused by global warming and causes even more global warming—an irreversible, accelerating, self-perpetuating loop of planetary heating. Permafrost thawing alone would Linkrelease emission 15 times larger than annual human emission while cloud loss will add 8°C on top of the 5°C heating caused by the rest of the factors.

Potential effects by 2100 includes:

  • LinkSea level rise of 60m. Note that two-thirds of the world's megacities are less than 10 meters above sea level, as is much of the agricultural land that feeds them. This means the total annihilation of almost all the world's industrial, financial, and urban population centers into uninhabitable waters, displacing 1-2 billion while destroying 100% of Earth's shipping infrastructures and supply lines—resulting in planet-wide economic collapse and famine in the short term.

  • LinkMass death of all coral population in the planet by 99% before 2050, resulting in an ecological collapse. Ocean acidification meanwhile, which cannot be fixed by geoengineering, is projected to have an even more cataclysmic effect.

  • Extreme water shortages in one-third of the planet, causing total collapse of both the agriculture in five continents and the reduction of the planet's entire tropical biosphere into barren, inhospitable deserts.

  • A flood of billions of climate refugees into North America and Europe that will outnumber the original population by 6:1.

  • An end of civilization in general as 11 billion out of 12 billion humans are killed by nutritional shortage, water shortage, disease, natural disasters, war, and violence within a short interval of time.

Note that all of these are no mere projections, they are already in progress. As of today, 2033, 35 million refugees already immigrated to Europe, leading to a blood-drenched humanitarian disaster in the Mediterranean sea and the disintegration of the EU. An additional 500 million is en route. It is clear that the present situation is unsustainable. Simply, the main driver of the current climate crisis is overconsumption caused by overpopulation—where the poor of the world are getting richer and thus increases environmental strain to its breaking point. Stabilizing the population at 9-10 billion won't do much: it's already too large. We certainly cannot sustain an additional 6 billion due to longevity.

We should keep this situation in mind as we discuss the second problem: our world's catastrophically wasteful policy of resources allocation that hinder us from our goal of saving the world.

PROBLEM 2: Useless Class.
Consider the destitute homeless. If you think about it, the net effect to civilization will actually be overwhelmingly positive with literally no downside whatsoever if all 170 million of them simply disintegrate into thin air. This is because at best, trying to reintegrate those drug-addicted, mentally ill, poorly educated, biologically feeble-minded homeless people into society will only yield a low-skilled, uncompetitive workforce useless to the new innovation economy. This renders the whole program inneficient compared to other alternatives, such as channeling the money to educate our brightest youth instead. From this example, we can determine the definition of the useless class: people who provide zero to negative value to civilization. Now, the world's intelligence quotient (IQ) is distributed such that

Fig. 0.4. Normal distribution of the human intelligence quotient (IQ).

which means that by definition, 30% of the world population have an IQ below 89.9. This is a problem. We are moving to a skill-based, innovation-based economy by which the rate you can learn and adapt is valued over repetitive labor. Yet if almost a third of humans are simply too retarded to do that, thanks to their biological cerebral deficiency, and is thus useless to the innovation economy, the result is obvious disasters. As governments enact more and more labor regulations to "help" workers under attack of automation, the overwhelming response of industries has been:

"Get ‘em back to work, pay them whatever they want, and then figure out how to automate the f**k out of their jobs so this doesn’t happen again."
—Rick White, CEO of UserVoice, during the 2027 labor strike involving Bay Area Rapid Transit workers. Within four years, 95% of BART workers was replaced with AI.

which results in escalatingly worsening job loss. This is combined with the fact that many high-tech industries rely on the middle-to-high income class as their primary market, meaning that the rapidly declining wealth of the "low class" are of no concern to the vast majority of industries, as those low class don't even buy their products in the first place and is thus irrelevant to their profit margins. In 2033 United States, following the landslide victory of the New Democratic party, these catastrophic figures have become the focus of the new administration:

Table 0.1. Prevalence of the "Problems" in America, 2033

No.

Useless class

How much do they take from civilization, in the form of welfare?

How much do they give to civilization, in the form of economic output?

1.

The permanently unemployable due to automation (59 million people), where the very existence of those who are lazy, unskilled, uncompetitive, and/or cognitively lacking are rendered completely useless and irrelevant.

About $30,000,000,000,000 to $60,000,000,000,000 per decade, in the form of UBI

Near $0

2.

The retired elderly (72 million people). Old, sickly, senile, unproductive generation that was once prosperous by destroying the environment while ignoring the consequences, but has now stopped working and is completely dependent on robbing the younger generation's money (through pension and healthcare programs) to keep existing.

About $60,000,000,000,000 to $70,000,000,000,000 per decade, in the form of pension and healthcare

Near $0

Now,

Eq. 1.1

Substitute the relevant figures and we get a return of investment (ROI) of -100%, making this $130tn/decade decision to feed and take care of these two kinds of Homo inutilis the most unprofitable and short-sighted financial decision ever taken in human history. Especially at a time where we desperately need money to stave-off all the looming and expensive crises threatening our civilization. We will remind you that these two Homo inutilis population can literally do nothing but beg for our kind generosity in the form of taxes and state welfare, and will starve to death without it. Yet the worst part is that this is a dynamic, growing crisis. The population will continue to age and permanent unemployment will continue to rise as technology advances, and things will get worse.

Fig. 0.6. Aging population. Note that this figure includes places such as Africa, so the real situation in developed and high-developing countries are far more catastrophic.

The result is the largest and the most unsustainable Ponzi scheme in human history, where the "giving" population continues to decrease while the "taking" population continues to increase. The cumulative cost has resulted in a bleak financial outlook in both the short-term and the long-term, and we haven't even talked about the volatility of the 21st century, where gigantic crises often demand large scale government intervention—the funds of which will eventually run out without careful management. It is no coincidence that in 2037, four years from now, absent of decisive action to resolve this impending disaster, our welfare system is set to spectacularly implode in a god gigantic global meltdown. This is 8 years after the 2025 Modern Monetary Collapse, and if it happens, it is unlikely that the world will be able to recover in time to address the upcoming crises.

Fig. 0.7. Bleak fiscal outlook will castrate the US's ability to respond to major 21st-century crises, most of which will rival that of the 2020 COVID Pandemic.

We will remind you that this problem is not distributed equally throughout the world. The United States, for example, at least still have tax revenue to collect from the tech companies (us). This is not the case for the 50-60 national governments completely reliant on either fossil fuel export, cheap-labor-reliant industries, or both—two whole industry that has been or will be completely erased off the face of the planet by decarbonization and automation. In fact, 60-70% of government revenue of these 50-60 countries has been wiped out today, meaning that billions are rendered permanently unemployable while their government are unable to provide them with basic income.

Fig. 0.5. Many nations depend on fossil fuel export to survive. Decarbonization will, or is currently, obliterating them to oblivion, at a time when welfare spending is ballooning.

We will address the comprehensive solution to both problems in the next chapters. You might have noticed our earlier talks about both immortality and peaceful depopulation, this will be important later.


1. FIRST IMPACT.
To implement our necessary solutions and save the world, we Resilient Acceleration needs to achieve world domination and this is obvious. This segment will detail the early preparations we need, to set the stage for the next step. A noteworthy clue: establishing world domination needs a lot of money and the First Impact revolves around that.

Quick takeaways:
  • Immortality will render pension and healthcare systems worldwide useless and free up $100-150 trillion worldwide for other more beneficial use.

  • Resilient Acceleration must demonstrate that there is only one savior to humanity: innovation. Other alternatives, such as elected politicians, should be exposed as completely useless.

  • Biotech, space, AI, green energy, and desalination are the five economic bases that must be fully controlled by the organization. These cash cows will grant the organization power and wealth larger than that of sovereign states.

  • Doing both will enable her to move to the Second Impact, which concerns about world domination under the organization.


ISSUE 1: Aging
As we have addressed previously, there is a giant sucking sound draining our budget and that's the senile retired people. They are old, sick, dying, medically expensive, generate near zero benefit for civilization, cost us around $100tn/decade to feed and maintain, burden the environment, and there's 1.09 billion of them. However, a genocide—or even just letting them fend on their own—comes with obvious implementation challenges. We propose a different solution: end aging entirely.
Fig. 1.1. Aging is the no. 1 risk factor for almost all major diseases. No aging, (almost) no disease. No disease, no need of Medicare-for-all or such other nonsense.

At the current rate, we will achieve relative immortality in 2050. You might question our decision to fervently support the development of immortality technologies after we spent a long time discussing the apocalyptic impacts of an unbridled increase in lifespan, resulting in an apocalyptic overpopulation. We will address this issue (you might remember us mentioning "peaceful global depopulation; this will be important later), and for now, just know that saving the world needs a lot of money. We now draw your attention to the three prime benefits of immortality:

  1. Immortality technologies will initially be expensive, as people are willing to pay "anything" for it. Those who control the industry (us) will be the richest and most powerful men of the world.

  2. After the cost decreases and its use become widespread, however, immortality will render the concept of "old age" non-existent,

  3. meaning that state pension and healthcare programs worldwide can be cut down significantly or even canceled. We will remind you that almost all major diseases are inherently connected to aging (review Fig. 1.1.), and by ending aging, we will wipe off almost 80% of the global healthcare spending and 100% of the global pension spending. This will free up around $100-150 trillion/decade, which we can use to save the world.

And just like that, we solve the aging population. No longer do humans grow old and retire; instead, they can work and contribute to the economy forever. We can make healthcare available to citizens, fund the New Green Deal, pay the national debt, and cut taxes. We prove that salvation from global ills comes not from socialist failures like Mrs. Warren and Mrs. AOC, but from us, the brightest minds of Tel Aviv, Silicon Valley, and Bangalore. While useless politicians are squabbling around the healthcare issue, we are eliminating the need for it. If you wonder why organization leaders such as Mr. Arka Pasca, Mr. Elon Musk, or Dr. David Sinclair are so popular, look no further.

Fig. 1.2. Healthcare and pension are two of the world's largest state spending. Eliminating those two will free up hundreds of trillions of dollars per decade, which we can use to fund NASA, cut taxes, fight climate change, etc.

If all of these sounds too good to be true, you're not wrong. We admit that researching and developing longevity technology is notoriously hard and arduous. While we are proud of our current standing in longevity technologies, we already said that actual immortality won't be achieved before at least 2050 and that's very optimistic. This means that, barring unexpected breakthroughs, we would still need to waste a flagrant amount of money on these costly old seniles for a minimum of 20 more years. We will address this problem in the Second and Third Impact sections respectively. Now, we will first meet with the main players in this industry as of 2033.

Notes

Epigenetic therapy

DNA methylation modifies the function of genes without changing their underlying DNA sequence. By making subtle changes to its molecular components (the methyl groups), aging can be slowed down or speed up at will.

Sitris2 Pharmaceutical, Ltd.

Sitris2's "Fountain of Youth" pills are in the process of FDA review and will be marketed as early as 2034.

Yamanaka reversal

Induced pluripotent stem cells (also known as iPS cells or iPSCs) are a type of pluripotent stem cell that can be generated directly from a somatic cell. This means that in the event of any damage to the body cells, including ones caused by aging, those cells can be reprogrammed to reverse into stem cells and then grown back as completely new ones, thus restarting the aging clock back to zero. Any disease that doesn't involve genetic defects can be cured by this.

Immortals, Inc.; Sirtris2 Pharmaceutical

More research is needed, but limited human trials is expected before 2039.

Nanorobotics

Robots whose components are at or near the scale of a nanometer (10−9 meters). Molecular surgical tools and bot hordes guided by molecular computers, injected into the bloodstream, can find and destroy cancer cells or invading bacteria, unclog arteries, deliver drugs with molecular precision, provide oxygen when the circulation is impaired, and even surgically repair individual cells.

Reformator, Inc.

Despite significant breakthroughs, human trials won't begin before 2040 as a lot of its aspects are still experimental.

Health informatics

Through implanted chips and other means, almost every single biological activity in the human body is recorded and compared with trillions of other data 24/7, thus enabling instant detection of any disease. The use of artificial intelligence to compare this colossal amount of rigorous hyper-personal data also led to rapid advancements in new drugs and medical inventions.

LilDoc, Ltd.; InScan, Ltd.

As of 2033, LilDoc connects more than 1.1 billion people in 28 countries. InScan chips have been used by 33 million people, a number expected to rise to 2 billion before 2045 as its availability becomes "cheap like a smartphone".

Hyper-personalized medication

An application of healthcare informatics. Drugs, medications, therapies, beneficial daily habits, and in the future, nanobot designs, are now automatically designed by AI to suit the recipient, based on data collected by health informatics systems. Various hyper-personalized medications are lumped into a single pill with scheduled releases, a "superdrug" known as "Megalixir".

LilDoc, Ltd.; InScan, Ltd.

This far more efficient and transparent model has destroyed the health insurer middlemen in public medicine procurement, and largely replaced the old model of Big Pharma of jacking up prices and trapping recipients in opioids.

Brain-Computer Interface

A technology from a different field concerned about the cognitive and conscious aspects of immortality. Direct communication pathway between an enhanced or wired brain and an external device. They are often directed at researching, mapping, assisting, augmenting, controlling, or repairing human cognitive and/or sensory-motor functions. Neuralink' s boss Elon Musk however goes further, planning for his technology to become the bridge that will achieve a "Human-AI symbiosis.

Neuralink Corp.

Use for treating diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's is already widespread. More ambitious stages won't be achieved before 2040, though.
