the problem X can be summed up as human physiology.
every problem the human consciousness perceives; societal, environmental, medical, etc., stems from that consciousness being hindered by its environment: the human brain, and the brain in the animal body and the body on earth...animals struggle desperately for survival and nature is without mercy. This is the grand disparity between the human awareness and animal existence.
if, say, an offshoot of the occipital lobe implant were created, in a non-invasive form; a coating of c60 over the cerebral cortex, and that coating could be manipulated by an MR to generate the appropriate messages of electrical current, then theoretically ALL the lobes of the brain could be influenced and communicated with directly, and in either direction, at the individual cellular level
and once an individual brain's processes were sufficiently mapped, the solid-state supercortex could be gradually utilized by the brain, as the brain adapts to the clean annexes for the function of the cortex...the solid-state brain would have to function exactly like new neurons, and the brain would adapt, as we adapt to anything over time
once the adaptation has taken place, the processes which manifest consciousness would be working in a "physiology" without imperfections like neuroses or ill-formed neural areas, and, in addition, with the ability to self-program, the consciousness would be able to have complete control over perception, reaction, and stimulation of any sort
this opens the door for a virtual universe of individual design, and it stands to reason that an individual consciousness would migrate to the solid-state environment, as it would potentially be akin to a thought superconductor, a path of so little resistance to thought that the animal environment could be left to die off, leaving consciousness in its "computer" environs to potentially exist as an omnipotent being in a virtual universe for far beyond a human lifespan....power it by the sun and an individual could exist for 13 billion more years in a heaven (or a trillion different versions of heaven)
no more problems when everyone can be a god in a virtual universe
if X is a simple expression of every problem in the perception of humanity today, the solution is also as simple as X
in summary: trying to fix societal problems is like trying to dress a dog like a fireman...we will have animal problems as long as we are animals, and the current small thinking of science will destroy us...why not fix all the problems at once?
