How to Win in the World of Tomorrow
Estudie usted el peak oil, la escasez energética que ya comienza a afectarnos, y transformará todas sus creencias, algunas las tirará al retrete y otras, que apunta, se amplificarán.
A mi, desde luego, me importarían los pensamientos y creencias que usted desarrolle al respecto.

"I believe that some of us alive today will live forever. Maybe you, reading this."
I've learned much from your well thought out articles on COVID-19, but the sentiment in the "live forever" claim stands in contrast to your demonstrated knowledge on COVID-19.
As cancer researcher Robert Weinberg has said often, "If you live long enough, you will get cancer."
Mutations in cellular DNA are unavoidable (cosmic rays, naturally occurring radiation sources, DNA replication errors, . . . ) and some of them yield a cell that begins uninhibited growth.
I'll read with interest your musings on this issue, and how you perceive that human management of DNA mutational processes will evolve, but at present I remain highly skeptical on the issue of living "forever".
Tomas, I really found your Coronavirus articles were exactly appropriate and insightful - I wonder if you are also a fan of Gapminder & the late Hans Rosling - I read his book Factfulness (written 2018) https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34890015-factfulness which identifies 5 global risks we should be worried about (global pandemic, financial collapse, WW3, climate change & extreme poverty). I look forward to reading your newsletters!
The Founding Member option allows me to input an amount to pay (even <$100). Is this how it's meant to work?
This is wonderful news!! Your writing regarding the pandemic was outstanding! Many of my medical academic friends put you in the class of Fauci, Gottlieb and Osterberg for quality, accurate and truthful information. I'm so looking forward to learning from your broader perspective.
That is all very well and interesting. I would consider to subscribe if only how to unsubscribe would be made clear. You pay 100$ for one year: what about renewal? Or can you unsubscribe at any time and be free of obligations to pay?
What an enticing list of topics in the draft list! fwiw if I had to pick just one, I give my +1 vote to reversing ageing. Perhaps it's just availability bias tho, just today I wandered into the site of the Foresight Institute and their collection of talks on Biotech:Health Extension
Did I just read correctly that of all the big problems and unknowns of the future, you didn't even mention climate change?
On your website logo it is written one way...and in the headers the other way...hence the question.
Just discovered Uncharted Territories and looking forward to reading it! (The introductory post is one of the best out there, nice, smooth and informative)
You write "I believe remote work will do to white collar workers what it has done to blue collar workers over the last 50 years." I'm not sure this statement makes sense. Or maybe it's just an unintentional grammar thing. What has remote work done to blue collar workers over the last 50 years?
Delighted that you are doing this. I much enjoyed the clarity of the Covid articles. My interest, for about thirty years has been to identify the necessary conditions for the survival of humanity. This is what I came up with, broadcast on Radio National here in Australia:
Your list mentions the the competing world-views democracy and authoritarianism, but doesn't touch on broader questions of equality. I want to understand why archetypally "male" thinking is so dominant and how it can be subdued. There is so much wisdom in non-European world views that is demonstrably true from the perspective of lived experience and empirical observation. Wisdom that is essential to shifting our species off the path of disrupting the homeostasis that has allowed us to flourish. Yet it continues to be obliterated by the mythology of human dominance of the natural world. Seems to me understanding this is critical to your question of humanity surviving the 21st century.
Which is correct, "uncharted" or "unchartered"?
