I often tell people that it only takes 50 coffees to solve any problem. Meeting people over coffee, discussing ideas and creating solutions is what I love doing. I usually joke that I have not got around to creating world peace through coffee yet, but it is something I plan to do.
Especially now that I am finding more inner peace in my own life, when I stop avoiding the problem, I find that the solutions are coming to me.
Given the negative media we are exposed to every day, it can sometimes be hard to see and understand, but there is a considerable evidence to suggest that the world is getting more peaceful every day. Globally, violence is actually on the decline.
I believe there are two real reasons why this is happening: increases in our bandwidth of communication and transparency. The more we communicate with each other – and the wider our communications with diverse individuals – the more we gain understanding of other people and issues. The more that our actions, thoughts and feelings are becoming transparent to others, the more we are being held to account for them by the world around us.
Technological breakthroughs are providing ever-increasing bandwidth in communication. We can now be connected by video – for free – to anyone and everyone on the planet. The first phone call was only in 1876 – yet communications have really come a long way since then. We are connecting more and more with each other and with the world around us. Consequently, our understanding of the world and each other is rapidly rising. For me, this is why violence is falling. Bit by bit, and despite what the news reports, we are working out how to become more peaceful and tolerant as a human race, by understanding other people’s thoughts and feelings.
And this brings me to telepathy. Mark Zuckerberg has already gone on record saying that Facebook will end up as a telepathy company. The first brain-to-brain communication happened in 2014. I have experienced some of the early forms of this technology myself, and it is both mind-blowing and heart-expanding to understand how deeply it is possible to connect with others. We have all had those moments in life when we have felt deeply connected to someone – beyond words. Imagine an era in which every conversation is like that! That is what telepathy will bring. I can’t wait until I no longer have the day-to-day administration tasks of communicating with people through email or even writing posts like this.
Telepathy will allow us to understand each other way, way beyond our present capacity.
I have a feeling that, in fewer than 15 years, direct brain-to-brain communication will be the primary method of global communication – providing a massive bandwidth of communication that few people can conceive of today.
World peace will really happen when we have total transparency of our actions, thoughts and feelings and when we have the ability to interact this way with everyone. This might terrify people, but the fears will subside quickly when people realise that, without the struggle of trying to make sense of the world around us, life will get better by orders of magnitude. Once we understand the real reasons why people want power, money and status, we will start to help people who crave those things to heal from their addictions. We will hold people’s hands and help to move them gently away from their rigid ideologies. We will have the capacity to work together to solve problems with solutions that work for everyone, rather than just some people. We will move beyond the need to be in conflict.
All the struggles in my life have been caused by breakdowns in communication and by me not being true to who I am. In a telepathic world, such things are no longer possible. And I, for one, can’t wait for that to happen.
I get the fact that this is a controversial subject. It is something of a thought experiment, but I would love to know your own thoughts and any additions to this discussion in the comments section below.
- S. Look out for the launch of my new podcast next week. I will be increasing the bandwidth of my communication with the world so that you all can get to know and understand me better. No doubt I will launch a video channel in the not-too-distant future, and maybe one day this will become the world’s first telepathic broadcast! A genuine View Inside Me.
