“Today we have the technological know-how to produce systems that make sure all humans can live long, interesting, healthy lives, that aren’t consumed by mundane jobs that do not further anything – and without consuming the Earth in the process! It is time for the technological revolution that will enable this to happen. It is time to go out and experiment, to stop thinking and start doing, and that is why I love this project.”
