“I’m excited to announce the development of a monumental project. ReelWorks Studios and it’s partners are working to take the Fuzed Trilogy to the screen!” — Award-winning Producer Rick Eldridge
Humanity versus Nature: Clearly the probability of a global pandemic is 100%. The Coronavirus is NOT an apocalyptic pandemic but it is a wakeup call. We’ve been given the chance to prepare for the much more deadly global pandemics to come (some outbreaks of Ebola had a fatality rate of 90%) … if we’re willing to learn from this.
Unfortunately, there are equal or greater threats. They include solar superstorms — that could take out the entire world’s power grid for a year — and the most dangerous natural threat of all … an impact. Scientists recently used declassified data from the Nuclear Test Ban monitoring system to recalculate the impact rate. Turns out, impacts big enough to obliterate a continent, are 10 times more likely than we thought. Dr. Ed Lu, astrophysicist, astronaut and CEO of the B612 Foundation, referring to the Las Vegas truism that “The house always wins,” said, “We’re not the house.” We can develop the technology to prevent or mitigate all of these.
Humanity versus What We Create: Computers are doubling in capacity every 18 months. We see it every time we upgrade our phone. We should have two to three decades before computers surpass our intelligence … unless the processors in billions of smartphones are linked together like neurons in a human brain. Their combined IQ would already far exceed ours. Cell phones are now being designed that can connect to each other without going through cell phone towers. Forget Skynet … what if Siri wakes up and she’s pissed?
Humanity versus Humanity: Micro-drones, facial recognition software, RFID tags, search engine algorithms and accelerated human gene editing – these technologies, and many others, are powerful and useful tools. Unfortunately, plowshares can also be turned into swords. The ability to monitor, track and influence everything we do has never been greater. The technology of Orwell’s “1984” is finally at hand, but even Orwell never imagined this future – where not only your identify can be stolen and modified … but even your genome.
