I feel in my core that humanity is in the midst of a massive transformation. If one reads about abundance and AI and even money, there’s an obviousness to what will be archaic “someday.”
I believe that one thing that will become archaic – especially for the creatives – is the idea of “boss.” Or even of “superior.”
Much of what even professions like lawyers do an AI will do better. Soon. In some cases already.
While I don’t “know for sure” how this will play out, I do absolutely expect a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth amongst those unprepared with the Real Skills of emotional self-management, of awareness, acceptance, and adaptation.
If an artificial intelligence can become the world’s grandmaster at Chess, Go, and other complex games, you think they will not be doing most “jobs” in the future? They will be better at driving. They will be far faster at loading, unloading, and delivering. They will be farmers and harvesters and so much more!
Getting to know how humans stress – and unstress – has real value. Getting to see how to be of service, what makes life better and what makes is suck… has real value. We can start with things that, no, cannot be automated yet. And feel into ourselves for the thriving lifestyle we most want to live, as certain things fall away as “work” and other things rise as “joys” and “art” and “heartistry.”
Humans build tools. But we also “inherited” from our primate ancestors concepts like boss and lord and superior. Our religions are hierarchical (although I also see/feel the co-creativeness as well if you look more esoterically). Our ownership structures, our governance, our “health” care… all hierarchical.
That will change. Or at least, that is where I am putting my energy.
I am not above (or below) my clients and circle. I have roles I choose to take on, be in, put my energy in for awhile. Some I make money doing. Many I make no money doing, even though they have for me and the community a lot of intangible value.
Yes, we’re running from hierarchy. It’s a sweet fleeing.
Yes, we’re running towards orientations that will feel much more free in our core, and true to our essential potentials.
