Seriously though, we're just at the beginning of our move towards the Singularity, which I think is where you should spend your time thematically in 2022.
A great starter article is here: https://waitbutwhy.com/2015/01/artificial-intelligence-revolution-1.html (He is speaking mainly about AI, but I think this can be expanded to include crypto, genomics, and the renaissance of atoms via bit-control)
Ben Goertzel is another great thinker in this space; https://bengoertzel.substack.com/p/the-coming-consciousness-explosion talks about the coming consciousness explosion.
"Imagine new Nobel Prize worthy discoveries and new categories of technology being invented 50x per second — meaning there would be no possible way for a human-level mind to keep up."

Congrats on the awesome year Packy - enjoy your time off!

Enjoy the recharge! Once you're primed for long-term projects, I'm working on what I hope will be that "worldbuilder" initial wedge :)
