Rats have long been one of humanity’s worst enemies.
Flea-invested rats were carriers of the bubonic plague that killed between 75 million and 200 million Europeans in the mid-14th century.
Today, rats still carry and spread many diseases – some fatal – including hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, murine typhus, and rat-bite fever.
But I love rats – specifically, OmniRats.
These rodents – developed by biotech researchers – contain disease-fighting antibodies that are remarkably similar to the ones found in us humans. And those researchers believe they’ll be the key to dozens of successful drugs.
This is the type of biotech breakthrough that defines “How We Thrive” in the Singularity Era.
To the healthcare community, that means these rats have the potential to save millions of lives.
To the company behind these rats, they mean new clients, more revenue, and bigger profits.
To tech investors like you, that could mean 50% gains in the next 12 months alone.
And a lot more after that
When it comes to mining – of both precious and strategic metals – most of the “low-hanging fruit” has been both discovered and mined out.
That’s even with the sophisticated power, equipment, and transportation technologies we discuss every week here.
And that leaves us with much lower grade deposits… at least on land.
One of the biggest tech advancements in recent years, however, has made those lower grade deposits – i.e., lower metal concentration per ton of rock – economic to mine. I’m talking about the ability to move, crush, and process massive amounts of rock from open-pit deposits.
Because so many of those metals are critical for high-tech weapons systems and all the “smart” devices we all now depend on, that’s one Singularity Era technology changing “How We Survive.”
Now, that covers land.
However, as we all learned in school, oceans cover 71% of Earth’s surface.
And most of that is very, very deep.
But we’re closer than you might think to mining for metals – many of them absolutely necessary for the tech devices that are fueling the Singularity Era – from the ocean floor.
Let me show you what that will look like (illustration below)…
