    Imagine a fully self-sustaining company with no customers, products, or employees, an autonomous company growing year after year with no work by any human being. It doesn't need to sell anything to anyone. It neither takes nor gives to society. It simply exists, its members benefiting from a perpetual revenue stream with no human input. It is an Island, an off-the-grid company, dependent on nothing and beholden to no one.

    Such a company already exists. It is a place where revenue is automated by AI and the humans focus solely on creative endeavors. It is a concept called the "Autodidactic Islands."

    Takeaway
