Cure world hunger.
Some 3rd world countries would benefit from it.

Peace makes people lazy. Conflict has been the cause of many cultural and technological advances, so not world peace.
As for cancer and world hunger, we're already having problems with overpopulation apparently, and that's with people dying all over the place. I don't like being hungry though, so I'll go for ending world hunger.

I'm pretty sure humans can still defensive technology even if they aren't warring with other humans.
Also, I highly doubt that any aliens would bother COMING here just to conquer us. By the time aliens would have the technology to even get here, I don't think they would require the earth for anything.

Conflict doesn't need to involve violence, so the idea that no warring between humans would make us stagnant is ridiculous. We compete with each other in many areas that don't necessarily involve any direct intent to harm and kill. Sports, culture, games, entertainment, business, medicine, music, you name it.

In fact most of human conflict today is not violent, and yet our technology is developing at the fastest rate in human history.

I would go for world peace or ending world hunger. They both partly cause and result from each other. If we ended one of them we may have better resources for the rest.

Personally have to choose world peace although it's a tough choice. I've already been affected by a war and I don't want anyone else to go through it.

if I created world peace we could spend more time finding a cure to cancer and ending world hunger instead of trying to build weapons to beat each other, but just in case aliens come, we will have weapons as a side project (maybe we will build a godzilla or something)

1. Finding a cure for cancer.

2. Ending world hunger.

3. Getting rid of world poverty(would be my number three).

That's all I want.

Creating world peace. The first stage to a perfect world would be to erase conflicts

Cure cancer, that would save many people who can make a difference in the world. Simple example would be Steve Jobs.

If useful people that are saved from cancer develop new tech, it'll be much better in the long run

world peace is such a subjective phrase; what exactly is "world peace", is it a state of warfree-ness? crimelessness? 0% unemployment rate? Without corruption? How can any civilization achieve that?


The more realistic options are curing cancer and ending world hunger; both are within our abilities.

I think I would rather end world hunger, simply because this is something that is caused by the greed of other humans and can be fixed easily if people weren't corrupted.
It's not something that is naturally-causing like cancer or other diseases.
