Starting from the Hub of Innovation that is the United Living Construct, to the innovations that will come from PolyInnovator (Polymath of Innovation). There are a lot of things we can do to pursue humanity's journey. However probably none more pressing than our global endeavor to become a Type-1 Civilization.
Based off of the scale from Nikolai Kardashev, a method of measuring a civilization's level of technological advancement based on the amount of energy they are able to use. Enhancing a global society to this scale is no easy task, and from what the calculations currently say we are about a Type 0.75! A Type-0 civilization doesn't technically exist in the scale from what Nikolai had define. Although that is where we currently are at.
Just a heads up this is a massive post about Kardashev Scale, and what the United Living Construct and PolyInnovator have to do with it. I made this in the hopes to inspire others to follow their own pursuits towards this goal, as well as share knowledge about the K-Scale (as we will refer to it from now on).
This gets into the deep thoughts about civilizations as a whole, and how big they can get. What we do now will forever impact the viability of humanity actually becoming any other type on the K-scale. If we ruin our planet while on our journey towards Type-1, then we may not have the ability to become multiplanetary. Thereby grounding us, and preventing any sort of progress towards a solar system level civilization.
The goal of #polyinnovator in the long run, and what inspired me to create my last endeavor the #unitedlivingconstruct, is to help the planet onto a path towards becoming a Type-1 Civilization #kardashev— Dustin Miller | POLYINNOVATOR ⚙️ (@polyinnovator) February 2, 2021
Why it is Important
I'm going to assume you know something about the K-Scale, or at least have seen some science fiction where it helps you imagine what it would be like. I.e. Star Trek or Starwars (think Death Star from Force Awakens).
I would be remissed to not lead you over to Kurzgesagt, where they have a phenomenal video on the matter. Would be a great way to get you started thinking on the subject matter before you delve into this post!
The reason why I am assuming you know about this that I don't underestimate the readers of this blog, as well as there are plenty of posts out there explaining what the K-Scale IS, of which some will be linked at the end; But most if not all don't go into the details of it means to you.
I hope to at least get us on the right state of mind by the end of this post, and hopefully start the steps towards achieving a Type-1 status.
