What Will Happen After COVID-19 Pandemic Goes Away?

Although COVID-19 is still running rampant in the West, especially in the United States, I think when the dust is settling, everything will be amazing again. Why am I so positive like this even though we don’t even yet have a mass vaccination for the COVID-19 pandemic? Just let’s say I believe in the effects of human nature, and certain effects of human nature will never change even if the world is going to end tomorrow!

Right now, people are not going to movie theaters, eating out, shopping at luxurious malls, and whatnot, but believe me I think when COVID-19 is over — you can believe that people will do all of that and even more than they have had ever done in their entire life! I think the feelings of being pampered and served are so amazing that people want to feel something like that again! After all, they are being cooped up indoors for so long during the pandemic — once COVID-19 is gone — isn’t it obvious that there will be a revenge of massive consumerism on the service sector?

Currently, malls and other public physical consumerism/service spaces are not being favored by everyone for obvious reasons — DUH! — not getting infected by COVID-19… So, let me tell you why am I being Mr. Obvious(!) — well, let’s say it’s common sense folks! Let me ask you this, do you want to go out and having a fun dinner with your best friends in various delicious restaurants that you used to go out before COVID-19? I would! So, for me being optimistic about how things would return to normal or things would turn out to be even better than how things were before the whole COVID-19 thing is rather Mr. Obvious(!)…

One small problem though! I think my prediction could be a little off from the bulls-eye because of the negative effects of the COVID-19 aftermath. Although we’re not out of the wood yet and I still could imagine that the people — who are losing jobs due to the massive shutdown of various restaurants and other service businesses — may not be able to get back into the same job career that they had enjoyed before the COVID-19 pandemic. Companies that are being badly affected by COVID-19 may not be able to survive even if COVID-19 is going away. Many retail stores may have to file for bankruptcy! Survivable companies may have to employ more robots and automation to recuperate the costs that they lost during the COVID-19 pandemic, thus these companies may hire fewer human employees.

The negative effects of the COVID-19 aftermath could be so huge that it could push down the market prices for unfavorable real estate areas. For example, several real estate areas could see people walk away from their mortgage payments since they could not afford the mortgage payments any longer for not having to be able to find a new job. When the real estate sector turns negative — depending on how bad it could become — it could also affect the businesses in such neighborhoods. Local businesses could see a huge loss in revenues. It’s like a chain of effects or chain of reactions, and the negativities could multiply throughout the economy.

Nonetheless, I feel that the economy is a strange beast because it could contain both the negatives and the positives all at the same time. I could see a scenario of people will go hungry and yet some people go out and spend money like crazy to make up for the time that they were forced to be indoor for so long during the COVID-19 pandemic. Perhaps, we could see the unbalance of the income quality thus we could have huge inequality in income after the COVID-19 is going away. Some people will be able to do more and enjoy their life more during the COVID-19 aftermath, and other people will have to go hungry and become homeless. I just pray that everyone would be able to do better and feel better after this horrendous COVID-19 pandemic — but we all know praying might not be enough. Let’s hope I could be so wrong, and everything will be super-duper after the COVID-19 goes away.

Futuristic Traveling: Traveling With Style In A Volvo 360c?

Some supercars of today cost more than a couple cool million dollars to own, but how comfortable could you be in such cars when you got a Volvo 360c?  Unfortunately, this is only a concept so far, I think!  Nonetheless, I hope something like this could come sooner rather than later!  After all, I hate driving between states and prefer playing video games, watching movies, and listening to music while on move.  Often time I could find myself preferring to sleep than drive while on the move from one point to another point.  At the moment, driving means seriously limiting yourself while on the move.  Your eyes gotta be on the road 99.9% of the time to avoid any serious but avoidable accident so you could make to your destination safely!  I think something like Volvo 360c could definitely allow me to avert my eyes away from the traffic and allow me to concentrate on something else that I could enjoy while on the go.  Check out the video right after the break to see how cool a Volvo 360c could be!

Uber and Strangers Are Dangerous For Your Health?

I’d used Taxi one or twice in my life before the Uber revolution had come about.  To say the very least, my experience with Taxi service wasn’t good since I got overcharged and whatnot.  Nonetheless, recent news on people either got killed or had gotten into a violent skirmish when using Uber make Taxi service seems like an angel to me.  What had gotten into people nowadays?

I fail to understand why people think it’s a good idea to let a stranger drives you around.  We teach kids not to talk to strangers and here as the adults, we let strangers drive us around.  When the kids actually avoid strangers, they actually make more sense than the adults.  Do you think everyone is an angel or something?

I think public driving service like Uber needs to force Uber drivers to install cameras everywhere in their car to help the authorities figure out what may cause harm to both the passengers and the driver.  You never know another ugly incident would occur and the result could be another death of somebody you may know.

I Think Mileage Tax Is Going To Slow Down The Economy, Hurting Poor People Even More

Yahoo’s headline “Trump signals he’s open to mileage tax with praise of Oregon program” suggests that Trump is exploring the idea of having to tax people for driving to work.  I don’t think this is a good idea at all.  I know people who are going to work one hour away from home because their circumstances don’t allow them to work any closer to home.  The moral of having to tax a poor person to try to get to work is so weird and not making any sense in any way at all in my opinion.

In my opinion, the gas tax is already a transportation tax because the more people drive the more tax they have to pay since they have to pump more gas.  Adding a mileage tax on to the top of the gas tax is like double taxing an individual.  What’s worse the mileage tax will make a poor person pay even more than they could afford for just going to work.

Luckily, the gas prices aren’t so high at the moment and so the gas tax isn’t a problem.  I remembered sometimes back in my area people were panic when gas prices jumped near $5 if my memory serves me right.  If the gas prices are going to jump back to $4 or $5, how are people going to fare with mileage tax and gas tax at the same time?

In my opinion, I don’t think mileage tax will help spur the economy in any way, and this will make the economy poorer in the long term.  I don’t think you have to use any imagination to guess that if people fear of driving far to get anything or to have any fun, how would this spur the economy overall?  Malls may stay even emptier and local tourism may feel the strain.

Unreasonable mileage tax will drive the economy poorer.  It would make poor people who have to drive far to get to work poorer.  It would also put poor people in a position of finding less productive jobs that are closer to their living space, thus it would reduce their spending power in general.  Basically, I don’t think it’s a good idea at all!

Can Quantum Mechanics Be The Key To Allow Us To Escape 3D Spatial Fabric So We Could Travel Through Time?

In the previous blog post “To Travel Through Time I Think We Need To Exit Our Own 3D Universe And Enter 4D Universe” I suggested that we could escape our three-dimensional world to a higher dimensional world in order for us to do time travel.  The question is how are we going to do it?  Easy to say than actually do it.  For obvious reasons, we can easily imagine up the problem, find an imaginary solution according to the power of deduction, but sometimes it would be impossible for us to put the power of deduction into practice.  In this case, it’s currently impossible for us humans to escape our three-dimensional universe.  Simply put, we don’t have the tech to do so.

In order for us to have the tech to escape our 3D-universe, we need an exact, practical know-how method with precise steps to produce a tech in which we could use to escape our 3D-universe.  Obviously, we don’t have such knowledge.  Nonetheless, I don’t even have to convince you that we can travel to the moon nowadays because we obviously could escape our homeworld which is earth.  We’ve been sending satellites to circling earth for scientific data and whatnot, and so I don’t see why we couldn’t be even more ambitious in the regards to exploring the outer space.  One step beyond the final frontier would be time travel.

Time travel is a science fiction that we probably won’t be able to put into practice, if ever, in a foreseeable future as it’s the stuff that is too way out there — too crazy to put into practice for us humans in our current evolution.  We couldn’t even yet achieve a technology which could allow us to travel between galaxies.  In my opinion, unless we achieve the ability to jump between galaxies to shorten our trip in space, we probably won’t ever have the time, the tech know-how, nor the will to even think about achieving time travel.

Nonetheless, none of the barriers I’d mentioned would stop our imagination from running wild in regards to time travel.  Movies, books, and whatnot have been exploring the fictional science of time travel for many years already.  I still think we need someone, a little crazier than normal, to actually explore the math and whatever about time travel.

Personally, I like to chime in a bit on how should we approach in finding a method to allow us to escape 3D-world so we could enter a higher dimension such as the 4D-universe so we could at least have some hope in achieving time travel.  So let me ask you to imagine something that is so weird OK?

Imagine a transparent, plastic bag which holds some water inside, but the bag is riddled with small holes.  Instead of escaping from the bag, the water is comfortably swirling inside the bag normally when one shakes the bag up.  Puzzled?  A bag with thousands of holes, yet water won’t be spilled.  Not even a single drop water would be spilled through this bag.  Still puzzling?

What kind of a monster bag is this?  You probably want to have one right now, right?  Well, this bag won’t exist yet unless my imagination becomes a reality.  As of now, the sun is still rising in the east and settling in the west, and so no, the reality isn’t yet capable of turning my imagination into something real just yet.

Nonetheless, let’s push forward with our imaginative hole riddled bag that is being filled with unspillable water.  The idea is that the holes are inexplicable small to the point that no water molecule could spill through.  Thus water could not be spilled from this leaky bag.

Since the water could not escape the bag, and so the water is just comfortably swirling inside the bag as normal.  Imagine our 3D-universe is like this bag.  It got holes that could allow us to escape to 2D, 4D, 5D-universe and so forth, but we simply can’t get through these holes to escape our 3D-universe.  We simply just don’t have the tech or it’s just impossible for us humans to do so without some sorts of futuristic science or pure magic or godly power.

The idea isn’t too weird though if we correlate this to quantum mechanics.  If my shady knowledge of quantum mechanics isn’t too off course, then I think using quantum mechanics we can somewhat point ourselves to clues that could allow us to glimpse at a higher dimensional world.

In the quantum world, things don’t behave normally as how we would expect in our own large, physical world.  Basically, in the quantum world, things seem to be inexplicably appeared and disappeared into places that we could not track or measure.  Is this still true with our current tech?  I’m not sure if we can actually yet track things in the quantum world yet, but if we can this would be awesome.  If we haven’t yet discovered how to do this, then I guess let me just use quantum mechanics to correlate to what is relevant in this blog post — to satisfy my ego.

This is just a pure speculation and got nothing to even come close to fact.  I speculate that in quantum world there are holes that are so small, inexplicable small, that could allow things in the quantum world to slip in and out of the current dimensional world that we’re living in which is the 3D-universe.  Of course, this is outrageous.  I have not read anything which suggests this could be the case.  This is just a pure speculation on my part.

Let’s just assume that in our 3D universe, in the quantum mechanics scale of things, there are inexplicable small holes that could allow things to slip out of 3D spatial space.  If this is true, then at least this could allow us to imagine that one day there will be a technology which could teleport us through such a hole and allow us to escape our 3D-universe.  On the other side, it could be 2D, 4D, 5D, and you know whatnot dimensional space that we could enter as we exit our very own 3D spatial fabric.
