The most profitable business
Posted on: 26.02.2018source...
There is hardly a contemporary who has not asked himself about the best way to make money. There have been several major economic priorities in the world: realties, natural raw materials, works of art, and so on. Bolder investors rely on "exotic" alternatives, such as technologies that, despite the high investment risk, have a serious future.
But hardly anyone would suggest in the firm belief that hew knows what to invest in – gold, securities, "gray" economy: each of these businesses has its own pros and cons.
And if, let us say, in real estates security is perhaps the greatest (well, people are many, and the Earth is one; practically it can not be stolen), the same cannot be said about the other "safe" sources of income – oil, precious metals, unique paintings, expensive sport cars, and so on. There is always the possibility that they may be stolen.
Alternative ways of making (large amount of) money, as mentioned, include new technologies. It is no accident that high-tech companies (Samsung, Apple) are more profitable than even the big oil corporations. Major industries include the aerospace industry, computer and communication technologies, alternative energy sources, etc. Some investors even develop extremely risky endeavors, such as the colonization of Mars.
Of course, every businessman is able to wordily advertise his business – testifying that it is the most profitable, the most prosperous and the least risky. The bulk of these beliefs lies on real grounds, because where there is a lot of money, there are highly qualified specialists, and they understand their job well.
However, is there a serious business, global and comprehensive, involving all economic areas?
Yes. Such a business already exists and it can be called BUSINESS "IMMORTALITY". What we can say about it?
There is more and more talk about man merging with the machine, casting the biological body with an artificial one, transferring consciousness to a computer chip, extending life – to completely overcome death. Contemporary scientific discoveries – genome decoding, human brain mapping, technological advances in the field of artificial organs creation, neuro-interfaces, – are real achievements, not science fiction. We are not far from the so-called "singularity" – when the purely biological nature will yield its place to a more sophisticated structure, integrating within itself the most essential features of the living personality.
When this time will come (and it is on the way), by the standards of the business, it will become clear that the most promising directions will be those that in one way or another are related to the creation of these artificial structures. Because even subduing Mars as a long-term goal of mankind will be less significant than creating conscious entities (or avatars), for whom it will no longer matter if the planets we visit are fit for life.
So, business minds who have the ability to look away from the most pressing problems that everyday life puts, can look up to the truly vast expanse of a new economic situation where the provision of physical immortality will become the most lucrative business ever created.
