Extinction, Evolution, and Event Horizons

By The Mission

“In the modern world, there are still many event horizons left to have the courage to go through and discover, and the only things worth doing are the things you currently think you can’t.” In today’s episode, Chad and Stephanie review last Monday’s newsletter where Chad dives into three key themes that we’re going to be integrating into our current and future episodes on Mission Daily. Those three themes are: extinction, evolution, and event horizons. What do these mean and why are we focusing on them?  Extinction - 99% of all life on earth has gone extinct. We are an extremely adaptable species, however, it’s important for us to think about existential threats to humanity. How can we make this a daily conversation so that we are progressing humanity towards evolution and not towards extinction? Evolution -  In order to evolve, we must accept the next biological singularity or our own species may be at risk. Think Elon Musk and Mars. We must embrace our own evolution and step forward into the future.  Event Horizons - The emergence of human language was the first singularity that humans faced. We often fall into the trap of near term thinking. But what does the future hold thousands of years from now and how are you helping to create the next event horizon for humankind- good or bad?  Check out the full newsletter here and sign up for our daily newsletter here if you haven’t already! — Don’t forget, we have a new partnership with b8ta! gives you access to some of the most innovative and cutting edge consumer tech products.
