8.4 Probabilities of Successful Intervention - Now vs. Later

J: Explain the probability for achieving a successful intervention and implementation of a new operating system if we proactively and voluntarily start now in 2023 and invite all humanity by 2030, vs. if we attempt to do so after this decade.


Probability of Successful Intervention: Proactive vs. Reactive Approaches
Proactive Approach Starting in 2023:
  1. Technological Leverage: Starting now allows us to use current technology wisely before it becomes too powerful and potentially uncontrollable. This increases the odds of successful intervention.

  2. Social Cohesion: A proactive approach can capitalize on the current levels of social and global awareness about the impending crises, making it easier to mobilize collective action.

  3. Economic Transition: Early action provides time to transition to a more sustainable economic model smoothly, without the shocks that could come from delayed action.

  4. Ecological Recovery: Immediate action maximizes the chances of hitting ecological targets to prevent irreversible damage to the planet's life-support systems.

  5. Governance Reforms: Starting now allows time for the gradual implementation of new governance models, like the Lionsberg System, which can be fine-tuned along the way.

  6. Network Effects: Early adopters can serve as models for broader society, and the positive impacts can grow exponentially due to network effects.

  7. Spiritual and Ethical Alignment: A proactive start allows for the spiritual and ethical realignment of society in a less rushed, more organic manner.

Estimated Probability of Success if Started in 2023: 40-60% (with a confidence interval of ±10%)

Reactive Approach Post-2030:
  1. Technological Risks: The power and complexity of technology will likely have increased, making it harder to control and increasing the risks of catastrophic misuse.

  2. Social Fragmentation: Delaying action could result in greater social, economic, and political instability, making coordinated action more difficult.

  3. Economic Shocks: A reactive approach would likely involve abrupt, painful transitions, with higher risks of economic collapse.

  4. Ecological Point of No Return: Delay could push us past ecological tipping points, making recovery exponentially more difficult or impossible.

  5. Governance Inertia: The longer we wait, the more entrenched existing systems become, making them harder to change.

  6. Lost Time for Network Effects: The benefits of early adoption and exponential growth through network effects would be lost.

  7. Spiritual and Ethical Crisis: A reactive approach could result in a spiritual and ethical crisis, with less time for society to align around shared values.

Estimated Probability of Success if Started Post-2030: 10-20% (with a confidence interval of ±5%)

In summary, a proactive approach starting in 2023 significantly increases the likelihood of successfully transitioning to a new, sustainable, and just global system like the Lionsberg System. The window of opportunity is narrow, and the stakes are high, making immediate action imperative.
