Changing the rules of our reality with technology

BY JOHN KREISHER
@ VOL 18 ON FEB 23, 2018

John Kreisher is an engineer and futurist with a passion for disruptive technology as a vehicle for systemic change and expanding human awareness. The rise of clean energy, the Internet of Things, and a sharing economy give us the opportunity to move into a zero marginal cost society, but we need to collectively change our thoughts about what is real and possible. Capitalism has bred fear and scarcity consciousness, a sharing economy will breed connection and abundance consciousness!
