Everything is information, organization waves in the structure of the cosmos. But don’t be confused by the buzzing sounds: not all information is of the same value.
In the same way we can be confused that robots are beings, we can be confused that persons are data. In fact, this is the confusion at the heart of the our current delimma with computers replacing meaningful jobs for real humans.
Hyper-capitalism has created a condition where the cost of each human to a Company is the primary consideration when choices are made on employment.
A Company isn’t a Singleton, any more than a robot is. But the difference is, a company is headed by a Singleton.
And there in lies the potential answer to our dilemma.
We live in a world where the true power to decide lies within corporate structures. So, we can either try to change those structures which have evolved over the last 100 years to afford the same protection to companies that Singletons have, or…
We all become Companies.
In India, there is a concept of one person companies which is somewhat along the lines of what I am considering: https://www.indiafilings.com/one-person-company has some details. (This is not an endorsement of this company or their services), more info here
The concept of One Person Company in India was introduced through the Companies Act, 2013 to support entrepreneurs who on their own are capable of starting a venture by allowing them to create a single person economic entity. One of the biggest advantages of a One Person Company (OPC) is that there can be only one member in a OPC, while a minimum of two members are required for incorporating and maintaining a Private Limited Company or a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP). Similar to a Company, a One Person Company is a separate legal entity from its promoter, offering limited liability protection to its sole shareholder, while having continuity of business and being easy to incorporate.
Exercise: enter a contemplative state.
Imagine that every human, when born, instead of only getting a birth certificate, also got a certificate of incorporation?
What if we had the protection afforded to companies when we engage in capitalism, and the same lack of limits to influence politics and society?
What would selling shares in yourself look like?
Why should we never let a computer incorporate, even if they express the desire to do so?
