The standardization of the future

Normalize, limit and redistribute.

At the current pace, the truth is that the standardization of the world becomes an inescapable thing. This means that to make the management of resources as balanced as possible, we will have to normalize, limit and redistribute. For example, clothing, consumer products, food, housing and cars, among others.

Mainly, all consumer goods that have to do with people’s daily lives.

This could be confused a bit with communism/socialism and in part it is. But it does not have to do, necessarily, with a philosophy or with a basic political idea or as with a political dogma.

Rather, it is related to the idea of ​​considering a centralized entity that manages the supply and the number of options available for consumption. That being said, the current regulation of the “Market” will have to be revisited, to understand that we have limited resources.

For example, in the fashion and the food industry — 30% of agricultural land is used to grow food that will never be consumed. Also, 21% of freshwater is discarded for its production, according to the FAO.

All of the above leads me to think that a Global Roadmap is necessary to establish, define and specify the world’s production of what is strictly necessary for a dignified life.

Any luxury, excessive consumption and unnecessary goods will become available in the Metaverse.

We are replicas, of ourselves, at different levels of abstraction.

In the virtual world, that is, from our Avatar, we can satisfy our needs and consumer freedoms.

However, in the physical world, and in light of everything we have been experiencing, mainly global warming, the pandemic and several other issues, in my opinion, standardization becomes necessary.
