TEDx Talks
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. What if we could rebuild our society in a way that works for everyone? Epochal changes are now underway that are radically transforming how society operates.
Johann will describe this revolution, and how it will create vast new economic opportunities and unprecedented social freedom.

Johann Gevers is Co-Founder and CEO of Monetas in Zug. Monetas is building the world's first universal transaction platform—an essential infrastructure for the society of the future. Johann's lifelong driving passion is to help create a better life and world for everyone, through personal, organizational, and social transformation. It has inspired him to develop a pioneering new legal system for a free society, based on a new Golden Rule. His thirty-year journey searching for better methods and tools—and for freedom and joy for humanity—has profoundly enriched his and others' lives.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

OK maybe I forgive that wink after ihe triggered Rooney in 04

The history here is complete bunkum.

Be cautious of all inclusive world views like this. Definitely not convinced regarding his 'decentralised law' point. We need an overriding rule of law to be able to predict the behaviour of strangers and thus cooperate

This starts well, but is Promethian.
The Greeks, long ago abandoned Promethius.
It ends chained to a rock with your liver being eaten every night.


Read Sapolsky?


Humanity now enters the Anthropocene.
Humans need little technology for that.
Just the opposite.
Decentralization happens as emergence - not intent.
Dunbar's Number is true.
It defines the tribe - and every single tribe is a roll-of-the-dice against the inevitability of entropy.


The coalition of tribes in the Holocene is over.
It was the "Tower of Babel".



The advent of the hive-human is over - along with specialization.
The internet will fall.
The tribes will re-arise.
The hubris will fail - as it always did.


Find your tribe?
Or leave this Earth?

Nimrods spirit lives in the spirits of world leaders , as he desired to rule the world we have come full circle . NWO has been in the works for centuries and they are running out of time as my Messiah and Lord is returning very soon . Jesus will forgive you if you are will to repent and throw away your pride . Are you open to receiving a Savior ? Decide soon before the door is closed .........

Total decentralization would be just as bad as overbearing centralization. Decentralizing large sectors of society would be a good thing I think, but as the age of genetic engineering, nanotech and AI dawns, we'd better have SOME kind of central regulation.

Tech is awesome and can greatly improve the world, but we have proven again and again that each major technological development is inevitably weaponized, and causes cascading waves of social destabization. The world can hardly keep up with the rate of change as it is. For all their smarts and altruism, the Techno-prophets of Silico Valley and elsewhere have a utopian optimism that borders on the naive.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

Core Values Can BE . Please adapt if you all agree to usefulness of these.

Center of such new society should be based on some strong Moral principals . Please check if below Moral Principal can be useful to apply in core/soul of this transition for Good of Society

Decentralized [ communication (space collapse), law-choice of law/adjucator/enforcer (hegemony collapse), production-material/energy (capitalism collapse), finance-fungibility/money/contract (exponential economy collapse) ].

Potentially treason.

But I love my nation.

Globalism.

Sounds like you'll have to pay cryptographers for legal forum-shopping.

Technology a based trust systems.
Francis McInerney
The Center of Everything can never, ever let this happen. It would destroy the regime and everything it stands for. The resulting struggle, now well under way is the kulturkampf of our time. Gever's mistake was not mapping the Center onto this talk and telling the audience what will happen. Because it won't be funny.
marcelo silva
Does anybody else finds it funny that he knows so much about how social organization and economy used to be in the "millions of years" of human history BEFORE the recording of human history?

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Twenty percent of the world’s population have no access to electricity. As people’s aspirations for a better quality of life increases, the demand for energy will also rise. Finding efficient resources that can sustain humanity’s needs is a challenge, especially resources that will maintain the balance in the environment and reduce the possibility of climate change. Srikumar Banerjee presents the advantages of thorium as a cleaner and more sustainable energy source.

Srikumar Banerjee, nuclear scientist and metallurgical engineer, is the Indian Department of Atomic Energy’s Chair Professor at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre. Homi J. Bhabha, after whom the Centre is named, started India’s three-stage nuclear power programme in the 50s. It is one of the best-known efforts to develop thorium-based nuclear power, thorium having greater safety benefits, absence of non-fertile isotopes and higher occurrence and availability. Banerjee’s work provides the basis for analysing the microstructural evolution and radiation stability of structural materials in nuclear reactors.
