Tomorrow: Not expensive to build, by today’s standards

The Digital Earth section on Health 2025: How a Digital Earth protects and cares for us all, describes the world’s medical systems at the performance level of tomorrow’s continuously connected Digital Earth. It illustrates how a global Digital Medical Immune System (DMIS) will enable many medical patients and providers — everyone — to reach healthcare goals rapidly, with high quality, and at global scale.

The same scale of global advances are throughout the continuously connected Expandiverse. This infrastructure-level advance will change jobs, business operations, supply chains, learning, entertainment, daily living in always-on connections and many other areas.

This kind of “build once, run everywhere” platform changes the world’s operating context. These expand how we work, how everyone can succeed all the time, and how much each person and company will produce. 

This is the kind of network-delivered transformations that offer the opportunity to collectively produce many trillions of dollars in growth, value and wealth. In comparison, a startup that reaches $10 billion in value is just 1% of the way to its first trillion dollars.

Speaking of medicine, this new kind of Expandiverse platform could be built for less than the cost of one sophisticated new American major medical device or pharmaceutical drug (including its R&D, FDA approvals and product marketing). Medical products and drugs are everyday investments.

We have seen inventions transform what we can do and how much we achieve. Building startups that are trying to disrupt every industry is becoming common. Health 2025 is about how a Digital Earth platform will change medicine for everyone. The result of this platform:  A Digital Earth will transform the global economy, too. Adding the Expandiverse starts focused, but will start improving many lives, companies and the world.

The deepest question is whether a Digital Earth platform might re-open today’s stagnating future. After decades of declining middle class income in the first world (including America and other advanced economies), the Expandiverse was created to give everyone new ways to rise, to make personal and societal greatness the world’s new norm.

A Digital Earth could change everything for the cost of one major innovation — which can be managed in steps and stages, like any other significant new product or service. If that kind of “home” can be found to develop this at scale, one thing is clear. Building this Digital Earth’s platform, and creating a global re-opening, are ready to begin.

The question is whether — and when — the world will see the affordable opportunities that are now possible.
