This blog is about near future Canada & other parts of the Cosmos where needed to refer to Canada. As I start to look at Canada I realize that the combination of Global Warming & Earthen tilt themselves change many things which coupled with the work of our clever research scientists make it impossible for me to know the near future so anything I say here is just my current best guess which doubtless will change. As my best opinion changes so will my writings.
Planet Earth is at a turning point at the start of 2019 when this blog begins. Our clever research scientists having realised that various samples of the newly defined double helices describe all life forms are now showing us how to cut & paste to create variations. Advancement & Worry!
Computers on earth are faster & have increased basic capacity rapidly. This makes them & their products advanced & scary. Robots of various types are now created by humans & robots themselves. Advanced & scary. No longer is it possible for a user to be able to distinguish from human to artificial intelligence.
Canada is my country on planet earth revolving round sun, the name we give to our star, which is in one of many galaxies surrounded by something we name Cosmos & meaning all. While Canada is a large country on earth in term of land area it is small in Cosmos.
Light takes nine minutes to reach us after being emitted by sun though we are told it speeds along at 186,000 miles a second. Still we have recently found that atoms apart many hundreds of miles interact due to a phenomenon we call “quantum entanglement” so in Cosmic distance measurement we may be close to sun.
On earth itself we don’t know fundamental facts such as how much energy there is. Oh yes, we know a great deal about shaping & measuring what we use but we know little of how much we have.
Canada has partly prospered in the past through sale of easily recoverable but non-renewable resources. Sadly these are becoming fewer & harder. As a result Canada is now entering into an era where sale of mental skills will play a larger part in prosperity.
Future Canada would be incomplete without inclusion of a space colony. I assume a single colony for all earth with Canada a piece.
This is THE passage that has nearby Canadian territory to the North & South but is now being claimed as international water by the USA. As the earth is warming this passage becomes an important route for ships travelling between Asia & Europe.
A many sided subject. A changing mindset subject where as resident in a long term care home many residents around me still think that what human life requires for success is a sound mind & strength whereas today the strength is provided by human controlled machines & mind soundness is supplemented by computer programmes. In the near future will be some form of Artificial intelligence (AI) taking on the entire work we are told. Mental education then need be extended & some more replaced by computers.
So far I have not mentioned the trade skills which today are largely supplied by machines that are human directed. Skills such as provided by carpenters will be needed but provided through them by more & more advanced machinery that will require more mental skills to operate.
The message to be noted & acted upon is that the workforce of the present will require some further training & newcomers will require more advanced training.
Those working on the more menial tasks will also require some retraining as the machines they will operate become more complicated.
Human like robots assisting humans & working alongside humans have not been factored here but we are told they will soon be coming so human education has to be adjusted to suit.
In those many service areas, such as insurance, where a client making a claim is met with a company representative, that company representative now has to often interface with a computer & this requires added education.
Mankind has entered a new work world. Moreover the new computer programmes are often riddled with faults to be corrected. All of this has been foreseen by clever Canadian “nerds” & is being implemented by Canadian decision makers. Canada is at the forefront & intends to stay that way.
Our national government has created “Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC)” (IN Group) that I will look at & blog about. Partly I was prompted by the US declaring that the North West Passage is not Canadian.
