  1. To move away from the megalopolitan, urban form of existence to more harmonious ways of life, modern civilization needs first of all to invent or discover these very “more harmonious ways”.

    This is elementary, Watson.


  2. If the civilization has cheap, almost free energy, the source of which can be placed anywhere

    Cities will die out

    Everyone will settle wherever they want, but definitely not in high-rise buildings

  3. Power and Power of Skynet
    People want a better life and more money, and they want to be fulfilled. And therefore, we are forced to gather in megacities and agglomerations. This can be done with. But to do this, you need to free them from money and work. Then they will spread out to rural communities to survive in cooperation. This will not happen until half a century later. Robots will go digital and replace humans. The economy of the future doesn't need these billions of workers. There are a million rich people at the top of the pyramid. Their families will be served by the realm of machines. Everyone else will be outside the gates of the city of the future. And they will return to the ancient economy. As hundreds of generations of ancestors lived

  4. What does modern civilization need in order to move away from the megalopolitan, urban form of existence to more harmonious ways of life?

    All would be in the figure, buzzed turned off ) and silence and around…….


    The ogre tosses and turns in his bed at night:— Who am I?” Why do I live in this world?

    My wife wakes up:— How many times do I have to tell you, don't eat intellectuals at night!

  5. Let's think logically. Other commenters ' answers to this question have already essentially specified the conditions under which such a transition is possible:

    1) Transition from manual labor to machine labor. Robotization of industry and everyday life will save resources and accelerate scientific and technological development, which will bring about the necessary changes. In addition, it will be easier to perform a number of tasks, which I will discuss below.

    2) Production (post-industrial decentralization) – that is, the division of an enterprise into a number of small sub-enterprises with their placement at a distance from each other (in order to reduce the destructive impact on the environment).

    3) Development of bioecotechnologies that allow introducing new methods of cleaning the environment – air, water and land, as well as rationalizing human life and housing (“biodome” and so on). Bio-high-tech technologies related to the transformation of the human body for life in nature are also possible (in the very distant future).

    4) The use of natural energy and the development of this use – the transition to the use of hydrogen, helium, solar energy, etc., the complete rejection of gas and oil technologies.

    5) Further development of terraforming – that is, active reconstruction of landscapes with technologies to compensate for losses from human technological activity (draining swamps, artificial rivers, cleaning sea water and turning it into river water, etc.)

    6) Hi-chem or ” chemical technologies of the future “(in the long term) – which will allow synthesizing food products from ordinary matter and further reduce the load (to abandon the agro-industry altogether).

    7) Combining the efforts of all mankind – well, this is understandable and so.

    Therefore, I believe that the transition to” harmonious ways of being ” requires a transition to a global society (preferably in a humanistic version).

  6. “Modern civilization” needs a lot of money-labor, resources, time. The city is the cheapest solution for organizing a public process.

    For “harmonious ways of being” while maintaining the achieved level of comfort, you need to allocate a helicopter, an all-terrain vehicle to each group, or draw a separate highway. In addition, you need to solve the problem of resource delivery (fuel, electricity, water, food, daily goods…) and waste management.

    We need a “home” with a level of self-sufficiency in the region of 95%. Energy generation, air and water regeneration, printers for food and simple items, teleportation?… Something like a spaceship with a corresponding price. 🙂

  7. A well-developed transport network (all types), a good power grid (with gas delivery to the most remote corners), a good Internet network, the availability of work in an accessible vicinity. The absence of a bureaucratic system that will reach any backwater and ruin your life. And all this should be available to the residents ' wallet.
