Why our solution will solve the problem:

If Amazon.com could be succinctly described as Walmart 2.0 (referring to scaling a more efficient distribution of physical goods), Phases 1 & 2 of this project might be akin to Walmart 3.0 & 4.0.

How people will access our solution:

Deployed: 
Two phases of development (per https://www.virtualabundance.c...).
First, via re-configuring physical forms of shelter & food provision combined with leading edge internet access & immersive digital mediums (i.e. virtual reality).  Second, TBD.  


Affordable and accessible:
Eventual no cost via combination of:
1. UBI (Universal Basic Income) and/or re-allocation of pre-exisiting public subsidies (i.e. public assistance, welfare, section 8 housing, etc).
2. Phase two would enable leveraging initial, novel value proposition (physical rejuvenation & lengthened longevity) into flat-tax pricing structure (5-10% of net worth and/or income) whereby those with the most to lose from dying will be most motivated to contribute.
