The news today is covering Stephen Hawking saying God did not create the Universe, check out William Crawley’s blog at the BBC.
Now to me the question is, who will create the next one? Most likely us, or some evolutionary descendent of ours. As long as we survive, which isn’t looking too hopeful at the moment if we don’t stop the collapse of the Earth’s ecological life support systems.
Creating a Universe, a proper big one, is an important aspect of sustainable planetary management. To have a vision of creating a new Universe, also creates an attractor point in the future on which to put the trajectory of global development on.
You can’t create a Universe if you can’t manage a planet first. This is what the philosophy behind our entry into the competition to run the Millennium Dome was about, a centre of excellence in global environmental management. This would have the ‘critical mass’ to divert the current headlong dash of society towards chaos and extinction.
To find out more about applied planetary engineering visit our background site where the outline proposal to run the Millennium Dome was placed. For a quick intro try Jamais Cascio’s excellent site, Open the Future, where some of our comments have been placed. Jamais then contacted us to find our views on the ethics of Geoengineering.
The beauty of understanding how to create a new Universe, is that apart from it involves us managing our planet more sustainably, it leads to the technologies of time travel and inter galactic flight. Brilliant.
May Celtic Lion recommend an interest in Omega Points to relate Hawking’s work with modern planetary development and engineering strategy.
