In 2015, I made my last highschool project my biggest by creating a website for the project's presentation component. I was prompted to argue a solution to a chosen social problem. Because I frequently follow discussions projecting the future on the Futurology subReddit, I was well aware of the discussion over the threat automation poses to the tradition of jobs, as well as the widely proposed basic income solution. I happily chose this topic, titling it 'Automated Income'. It aligns with many of my interests, such as automation, computer science, and artificial intelligence. The social problem is also one of the most important issues for my generation to face – it reveals how automation allows us to be more human, to transcend the menial mechanical tasks we deal with. For my presentation, I chose to format it as a website to allow for maximum interactivity and to simultaneously further my experience with website design.
Have you ever wondered where the universe came from, what it's made of, how it works, what the meaning of life is, or what you will experience when you die? So have I! The Equivalences is a compilation of my philosophy involving reasoning at the extremes, unlearning contrives, and holistic awareness that seeks to answer these questions and more. I pursue this by unlocking the secrets of infinity and reevaluating assumptions made by mainstream science, language, and spirituality.
