Pause and imagine: A system prepared for COVID-19

    Looking at training using new media, I made a list of what I’d like a game to teach. Skills to defeat AI and tyranny. Lateral Thinking. Pleasant screen environment. Bounds of when knowledge should not be public. Exhibit a better technology prototype. And most importantly, learn psychology about why the player isn’t as ethical as is desired to be. Things like self-esteem prevent people from giving up literal religious interpretations, mo money, and alcoholism. Very few people know or worry about otherwise healthy people with such affects, but it may be the flaw that leads to WMDs. I’m not sure what media is needed for such analysis remotely; maybe a questionnaire or maybe a shrink on a tablet. But you have to want to improve one’s own utility.

    The UK system seems to incorporate privacy for now (it will get expensive). In the future something like quantum short wave radio can bounce around much of the world to connect the best doctor with a battlefield general. The marshes where diseases start in China are classified; but you’d want less industrial pollution and other factors that increase mutation rates; they should really have 150M people.
    A near MPI system for medical imaging would see particles being injected that are able to degrade in the body after imaging; a 15nm brick isn’t as good as is smaller units that have biodegradable linkers…the resolution is enough to catch spies when you image blood flow at the precuneus, lateral thinking with the PFC, and eventually expert knowledge memory. In all, you can’t just invest to remove dangers and include people who might make WMDs. You have to remove and restrict some things, it is why proxy wars are always in the news.

    Problems with an open system are assassinations and loss of privacy/personal-safety. An atypical disease was noted in China a week earlier published where the AI doesn’t look. We would’ve had to catch it Dec 1st with an aggressive military team ready to respond in hours, in much of the West. The robots and AI will eventually target us, though you can’t fly to the stars without robots and AI.
    I see different manufacturing faculties being able to make products for different emergencies. When we are preventing emergencies and dealing with them, the economy is different. We should act to make all the machine tools we need for disasters, especially where demand for the non-emergency product has tanked. And stockpile storage space and parts like turbine blades for VTOL jets that are specialized enough.
    Some leaders and military will barely see enough to socially distance in time or stop a meltdown. Some 2120 ones would stop Covid-19 in November and have the 9-11 planes shot down en route.
    I think we should pay people for medical trials where they can achieve a Bucket List and to the 3rd world where they can be educated/socialized/treated here. I think we should use medical imaging advances, like magnetic nanoparticle filter implants, along with a better training curriculum to teach lateral thinking. Ultimately, we will cure diseases safely when leaders aren’t religious and are seeking excellence. Right now, only beeswax isn’t blatantly toxic for drug delivery and gene therapy of better surfaces would lead to new chemical WMDs. Right now a bug kills the health database concept, let alone classified WMD data.
