Seen from another perspective Orlov’s fears and solution also make sense.
It’s observable that technological innovation has been changing the World and human life in an apparently exponentially faster fashion.
As people migrate to the cities and are born there, they also feel like they are not in such solid ground (uprooted in all senses). The new urban environment is not as miserably previsible / foreseeable as the world of our ancestors, it can be a lot better and also in times unthinkably worse.
Technological innovation and rapid urbanization, and Globalism, is already homogenizing “safe” old established cities and regions down the World standard of sudden urbanization, as well as creating new previously unforeseeable thriving cities (like Dubai). The cycle of decay and growth becomes faster and faster to the point that making a living, owning real estate, or a manufacturing center, makes more sense either by making it ephemeral or movable.
A lot of production and goods and services consumed have already gone completely ephemeral (internet browser instead of physical theaters and lecture halls). The physical World needs to adapt providing versatile, flexible, movable platforms upon which humans can continue living a globalized virtual life, irrespective of static geography and borders.
