The essential first step is to think for yourself. Only by seeing our world anew, as fresh and as strange as it was to the ancients who saw it at first, can we both re-create it and preserve it for the future.
We're on a mission to revive Sci-Fi 🚀 transcend apocalypse politics 🧠 and engage with new - even sometimes frightening - ideas.
If you treat the future as something definite it makes sense to understand it in advance and to work to shape it. But if you expect an indefinite future ruled by randomness, you’ll give up on trying to master it.
We believe new ideas are essential to the progressive march of human civilization. We believe there’s more in science, technology, and business to discover, that it must be discovered and that in order to make such discovery we must learn to engage with new ideas.
We’ll feature many of our culture’s most important thinkers in the fields of knowledge necessary to the progressive improvement of our civilization.

Whether the future is better or worse will depend on our actions. The future begins with the narrative we share today. It is up to us whether humanity may progress and continue to evolve. Are we heading to Utopia or Oblivion?
The consequences of the decisions we make today about emerging technologies will ripple forward for thousands of years. Advancing technology may make this next century one of the most important in history.
The road ahead is long and there will be many setbacks. Success is not assured… but the price of failure has never been this high.

The dreamer is the designer of tomorrow.
It is critical for us to deploy new thinking for a globally distributed economy, and to rethink how we can build 21st-century systems that work better for more people over the long-term.
For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.
Growth is impossible without conversation. A world without futurists is a world in decline, and in a declining civilization everything we value, from science and technology to prosperity and freedom, is in jeopardy.
