IS PURPOSEFUL INTELLIGENCE HUMANITY'S ULTIMATE MUTUAL RESPONSIBILITY?
Humans are no longer the main source of intelligence on the planet. Moreover tech is compounding so fast that the risks of humans being sidelined from life critical decisions is multiplying. But there are 2 ways to sustain all our chiidren's freedoms. First is to recognise nature has always integrated what futures evolve on planet earth. As Einstein mathematics showed nature is always inventing systemic games which interact at more micro levels of dynamics than we can measure let alone safely ignore. Covid is such a case. Back in 2005 Bush, Gates and leading epidemiologists said it was necessary to prorioritise tech's Artificial Intel (AI) to maximise prevention of risks of a plague multiplying faster than we could halt its waves. In terms of prevention AI 15 years was then wasted, and it doesn't look as if the historical powers that assign priorities of tech investments are minded to explain why.
Another Greatest of All Times (Goats) mathematician, Turing, proved that humans have a recursive curiosity that can never be matched by Artificial Intel. We could demand any advance in artificial intel is also used to augment our children's own unique intellectual ability
The Goats of mathematics who gifted the new tech were aware of problems intel would pose 21st C being. My father became Von Neumann's biographer. As early as 1945 Von Neumann was saying; my first of 2 lifelong project is on energy. This will make scientists both the most hated and the most wanted of people. My second project, the computer and Artificial Intel, will one day gravitate even more risks.
For decades now, there have been 2 opposite views to where we will head with many technologists predicting 2020s as last choice decade. This was the likely due date for the switching capacity if silicon brains to exceed and then far outpace that of human brains. A version of the direction which my family and friends don't vote for is shown at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5HNeahRYDM
In contrast, here's an updated guide to why we spent 40 years since 1984 on 2025report of the opposite choice - searching for human and digital intel cooperation of a higher order integrated from every GPS up This is a learning journey; questions welcome email@example.com You might like to try out grounded theory.

My father, Norman Macrae, spent his last days as a teenager in world war 2 navigating airplanes in allied bomber command, Burma (today's Myanmar). For dad, this unusual experiential learning bridge into young adulthood had consequences to live and learn with.
Every day from now on, we are being asked by UN friends to celebrate how 2020s Youthful Goats of maths help us all CODES that integrate 4 Yings and Yangs of Cooperation Intel around the world

Economuistdiary.com offers an open source guide to how differently can web 3 be designed in spending human's time 2030-2023 versus web1,2 2022-1990 including real staging of events geared to trusting the UN2 future.
For example, Glasgow University Union is assigning its 265 moral sentiments summit June 2023 to this cause. To contribute rsvp zasheem ahmed <firstname.lastname@example.org> whose connectivity networks staged 250th moral sentiments in 2008 and have built 2 academic journals:
valuing millennials as first sustainability generation - new economics
empowering of 1billiongirls as leaders of repairs to communities that HIStory had most divided - social business
Dad came from generations of Scottish Diaspora. Our "Bible on Common Sense". and the one book dad had to read in Burma: Adam Smiths Moral Sentiments. Adam's book was celebrating its first Quarter (of a millennium) when dad hosted his last public birthday party- where did 40 good folk at ST James Royal Auto Club map as peoples or palaces Adam would most enjoy celebrating in 2008. Provisionally the meeting voted number 1 source- 1billiongirls.com whose development of Asian Villages since 1970 is to the Keynesian School and Schumacher in particular nothing short of miraculous.
You could say its in Scots DNA to ask what good can humans do to generations with engines? And are there goods to value beyond Nations' most powerful LONs and COPs. Please bear with me: I do try to minimise use of Acronyms and jargon. But if the younger half of today's world - especially their leaders the 20 somethings - are to be the first sustainability generation, the love and courage of seeing beyond Leagues of Nations and Conferences of Parties is something they will need to map- relentlessly, recursively and with with more optimistic urgency than previous generations of 20 year olds have ever staged.
Let's do a bit of rewinding of the human race applied to a prominent 36 character (alphanumeric) code. To verse yourself in the English mindset, you might want to go back to the old world of shakespeare and newton, or to rwo plagues (1348, 1665 each killing up to quarter of londoners but ultimately making it the superport that began all the goods and evils that western capitalists have spun) which sandwiched the Bard's poetic era, or even 1066 and all that.
But for now lets go back to the early 1700s. Half a century before Smith's co-worker at Glasgow University James Watt invented the steam engine, Scots had lost their nationhood to a small group of men possessed with a mission: to dig the Panama Canal by hand!
According to Scholar Skinner in Issue 1 of Glasgow University's Journal of New Economics: we may join in 1737 Smith matriculation at Glasgow University age 14; then being sent as a graduate to Oxford for 6 years age 17. More generally. what sorts of schooling did the future's greatest system designers enjoy is one of the most question questions of 21st C coming of age - spot the clues throughout this book or read all about how genius brains are developed - flow research Prof CSIK), or why we value sci-fi writers like HG Wells whiose core hypotheisis is :Civilisation is a race between education and catastrophe.
Smiths diaries showed professors at Oxford University designed English education systems with relatively little interest in students futures. Rather they wanted a cosy life serving the Empire's administrators and moneymakers, and silos of hieracrchical expertise were one way to achieve this , even certify monoplies of thought. This had come to suit empire administration in the era of messaging limited to one horse power or an Armada's sails. The English system of education sought to throw out creative youngsters- what you needed to rule the waves and admninster land was confidence (even singular arrogance) that you are a party to the one and only right way to decide everything. Whether you would have agreed with the young smith is immaterial. His teenage freedom to expereince explains why and how he became Scotand's greatest prof of logics and the unique purpose of his 1758 book moral sentiments. This (the final word on markets and lifetimes before engineering) discusses what it would take to design transparent markets integrating better for humanity purposes.
Smith certainly did not say that it was natural for any market sector to sustain intergenerational needs aligned to nature's evolutioary rules. He did say a majority of market actors (sellers , buyers, suppliers, scientists and society's influencers would need to mediae trustworthy info). He would for example of argued that humans need to cooperate ahead of time to prevent fake or fame media , out of which humanity's soul may never escape
If dad's 7 year transition into adulthood were as dismal as could be survived through, 1945-1951 were as fortunate as any twenty-something could hope for. He completed his Cambridge degree in economics in Keynes last Class. By this time Keynes was arguing few people locked in waht futures were possible more than a handful of economic scrobblers whose theiries were turned into constiutions of what organsiatioanl systems a place authorises.
At Cambridge Corpus Christi dad married the sister of his best friend David Kemp. This dad's father in law was Mumbai's chief justivce whose ;ast 25 year of work dialogued with Ganhi and wrote up the elagelese of India's Independence.
Hired late 1948 by the Economist, dad was quizzed by its editor Geoffrey Crowther who had just published the autoboigraphy of The Economist 1943-1843. London Scot Jmaes Wolson had started The Economist as a Royal Society newsletter. Woukd the 20 something victiria be interested in transfirming the constitution of English Empire around ending starvation of peoples and designing finace to end poverty in so far as empowering each next child born anywhere to have a fair chnace at life.
During Wilson's 17 yeras editing The Economist he had got Queen Victiria to use her influence to stop starving the Irish (ie repeal corn laws). Buthwne she sent him with charter bank to start up the first finacial system by and for the peoples of India, James only survived one year of medisting The State of Indian Union before dying of dairrhea Calvutta 1860. Of course there were many ups and downs of mediating 1860-1940. Eilaways and electricity were to start up tyhe first era of rtelecommunication IRTU Switecrland 1865. Ho wdod nations around teh world cooeprate to share one standard- be that fir transmiting telegrams, telephones, radio, emryonic televeison. As could be seen from 1943's hundre year view - not so good.In fact the assumeytries of the the biggest 8 empires of this tele1 version communications world were a root cause of world wars
ENTREPRENEURIAL REVOLUTIONS (ER) EMERGING BREAKTHROUGH
Everything that dad expereinces from 1945 became a knowledge fucion thrugh a chnace first meeting with Vion Neumann Peinceron 1951. What emerged was the greatest scoop of dad's life, indeed of any newpaper mam's life. Dad had been seconded by the Economist from London St James to a yera in New York. Neumann with kes than 6 yeras to live askedw ould your peer journalists in economics be interested in teh sccoop - whatr gioods can peopels unites wehrever they have first acess to 100 tiems more tech oer decade. Lucvkily Geoffrey Crowther not only though thi ws a good idea but encouraged dad to write up 2 books tracing the colapse of London (London Cap Market, Sinshades in October) as bank to the world as well as despatching dad to be the only journalists at Messina's 1955 birth of the Euroepan Union. Questioning how to help peopels escape from thye chian of histiry became the first genere The Economist let jouranlists sign their name on. Aged 39 dather was assigned to one surbvey a year, He chose places that had worried him most as a teenager- 1962 future of Jpan which became a great joy, 1963 future of Russians which became a very curious literature. Perhaps this was explained by my patrenal granfarhre becoming The British Diplomatic world's made collector of Intel on tyhe evils of Hitler and satlin. In fact through age of 11 dad was being homeschooled in British Embassy in Moscow seeing11 year old aquaintances disappeared. For sure, any of dad's place surveys up to 1977's futureos of half w=the word's population living East of iran (or the peak of Chinsese continal peoples at a qaurter of human race before one child policy) were only one man;s copperative Q&A of whats up with humanity. But along with Von Neumanns Goats we can figure that Keynesian followers of Gneeral Thoryof money-Interest-Emplyments would have applauded The Economist priortising media's roles as chief questioner of the powerful not the chief certifiuer of how one MBA segment of brainpower orders all of money printing.
This is where you may want to stop reading. If you don't like the way dad staged discussions on peopels futyre places (copies in libarry archives of the Economist or mostly at www.mormanmacrae.net) , you wont like his priorites from 1971 in questioning tech futures on what I have since 2015 been told are the core human purpose markets of SHE(Lf)F where:
S~goal 5 how female built communities can sustain world that male only dominance cannot
3~Last mile health service
4~ last mile livelihood expereintial learning
ER~17*1 from 1971 when noxon took the dolar off the gold standard - dad was concerned to argue that fintech needed to be mapsped as the peopels way oiut of biggest pare currencies investing ponly in biggest organsiations not teh small enterprsie netwo9rk model that each decade of von nheumman's 100 tiem moore survey mapped as integral.

Geneav's corridor stretching from Einstein's Germany to Von Neumann's Hungary and since 1865 both the birtjpace of worldwide coms and the conflicts of engineering brilliance often landlocked by Russia's North and what some will call Eurasia's nations
Now I may be wrong but whenever i look at maps of where tech may be exponentially accelerating I like to see what trading beudges foirts connected thsie intels and whether the epopes who formed this bridhges hoped they would open networks to more and more diverse peoples/lands worlwide. For example the prinecton corridiors leapt ahead becasue the gaosts of maths emigrated from teh swiss corrodor to escape hitelr and stalin.
