Universal Basic Super Powers

Universal Basic Happiness, Part 3 (Plus geekout Avengers review!)

VR puts us in the digital world, where scarcity doesn’t exist.
It is one way of getting to post-scarcity and will probably play an important role in the post-scarcity future

But we also need post-scarcity in the non-digital world
We need to become Sexy Immortal BIllionaires with Superpowers in the real world
Re-examining that formula — the words missing are “good” and “happy”
Post-scarcity will be the final elimination of income inequality because it will well and truly no longer matter.

SPOILERS ahead

We are already smarter than Thanos
Like all Malthusians, he suffers from a terribly scarcity-based mindset.
