To Zero with The Cost of Living
Hi there! I'm doing some research for a project called "To Zero" (towards zero). Its primary goal is to connect like minded people around the world to join efforts in creating solutions to take our cost of living close to ZERO. The ultimate purpose is to free people from the burden of money so they can be free to create and express themselves reaching their highest potential. It's a movement towards Abundance, Freedom and Self-Empowerment. It's a Movement focused on SOLUTIONS!
In order to do that, we will leverage exponential technologies, the changes in the socio-economic landscape and new concepts such as Universal Basic Income (UBI), Blockchain & Cryptocurrencies, Decentralized Organizations, Artificial Intelligence, Global Connectivity, The Rising Billions, Vertical & Organic Farming, Clean Energy, Sustainable Housing technologies, Robotics/Automation, 3D Printing, Quantum Computing, VR/AR (Virtual & Augmented Reality), Sensors & Internet of Things, Nanotechnology and others.
We are in an unique time in history when we common people can create massive changes if we are able to work together towards a common goal. The Internet laid down the network infrastructure from which we can operate from. And now the Blockchain (the technology behind Bitcoin) is becoming mainstream (many say its impact will be bigger than the Internet itself) and it will make possible to create a truly global economy based on Trust, Fairness and real Value exchange that will cause massive impact in our societies.
We also have technologies such as Artificial Intelligence that it's now becoming reality. There are the bad guys that will use it for their own benefits and to control others and also there's a real threat of millions of people losing their jobs because of that. But I believe that the good guys & gals can now take a stance and do something about it to minimize the risks, share wealth and avoid concentration of AI power in few hands.
The areas that we gonna focus are Health Care, Housing, Food, Energy, Transportation & Travel, Utilities, Clothing, Taxes, Goods/Consume, Leisure, Education, Self-Development, Services and Entrepreneurship.
It's not only about reducing costs, it's also about Income Generation, Prosperity Management & Security, Prosperity Sharing, Abundance Mindset & Personal Growth.
The primarily focus now will be on Money/Cost of Living, but its impact goes beyond that. We can think of taking down to zero any negative thing that we can think of such as corruption, stress, disease, crime, war, violence, oppression, discrimination, injustice, etc.
