Super America and Civium

Excited!! I am meeting with Jordan Hall, who has greatly inspired me to think bigger with his work on Civium. Although I had designed entire worlds in video games before, I never really thought about what it would take to redesign physical world systems. Jordan's vision gave me the license to think bigger and explore the possibilities of creating a more sustainable and equitable world.

Civium aims to make our society better, fairer, and more sustainable through collective intelligence and the use of new technology like blockchain. It wants to create a system where everyone is treated fairly and the environment is taken care of. By changing the way we do things like growing food and making money, Civium believes that everyone can be happy and healthy.

I agree with many things about Civium, but I'm also interested to see where we might disagree. Jordan is a big believer in the Dunbar Number, but I am not. I think that while the Dunbar Number may have been relevant in the physical world, digital reality breaks it wide open. With the formation of personal AI networks and widespread holographic travel, I believe the Dunbar Number will become exponential and global. Here are bullet points on Super America that I created to share with Jordan. They touch on similar themes to Civium and Super America. Super America
