Second Earth: Vision & Mission
Reviewing the current developments across civilization and technology, people must face reality: against a backdrop of rapid technological change, humanity has lost itself.
People’s opportunities to access technology are increasing, but a sense of belonging is seeing an inverse effect.
The amount of information that exists is skyrocketing, but at the same time its quality is declining.
Technology has brought us closer together than ever before, yet we are drifting apart. The world in 2020 is a place marred by deep insecurity and despair, both of which are poisoning society.
Thus, let us put wield hope against despair and faith against insecurity, giving rise to a better world and through technology.
Technology has ingrained itself into every aspect of our lives around the world, yet it cannot be the sole solution for all problems. Artificial intelligence is still in its infancy, the use cases of blockchain are limited, and the coronavirus has shown the fragility of our global supply chains. In such times of crisis, can technology give us new hope and help humanity continue its path forward, free from the limitations of the physical world?
The popularity of online video conferencing tools, such as Zoom during the pandemic, have helped people understand that interactions and communication between people are not necessarily hindered by physical barriers.
Traditional personal interaction reaches its limits during times of crisis, but eventually this leads to an emergence of new ways of interaction.
Civilization is constantly evolving, and this progress cannot be halted. Instead of fighting the change, we must shape it and strive to create harmony between civilization and technology.
Many barriers prevent interaction in the physical world, from limitations of time and mobility to even subtler barriers, such as economic background or physical appearance.
The wealthy might not spend time with those from a more modest background.
The popular clique may not mingle with cliques they do not share any commonalities with, but they would not be obstructed by these societal barriers in an online space, like gaming.
We are only just seeing the beginnings of how the emergence of virtual worlds will fundamentally reshape human interaction.
The Second World (Gaia Project) will set out to drive this change because we passionately believe that there is only direction that humanity can go: forward! PLVS ULTRA.
The Second Earth Mission: Reshaping human interactions.
The Second Earth Vision: Shaping a second human civilization in the virtual world.
The Second Earth Motto: PLVS ULTRA (Latin: further beyond).
