Content Futurism

WORDS


Provocative headlines masterfully crafted to agitate. Algorithms programmed to feed us with anything that prompts us to click. A financial system hostile to life became an end in itself. In a world optimized for profit over value, even our outrage gets commoditized. 


Modernity has failed us. We are losing sight of what it means to be human in the increasingly complex social organization of the day. In this dizzying state of confusion, truth dissolves and mutual trust dissipates, while time itself gets speculatively reorganized. 


HUMAN


In a financially incentivized proliferation of chatter, we can only be stimulated by statements that serve to confirm and not to question. There’s no space for context and no time for ambiguity. We are the queens of our filter bubbles. 


TRUTH


Individualism is degenerating into a fragmentation of shared reality. Digital media is feeding into our solipsism, atomizing us to the extent that objective truth becomes irrelevant. Extinction looms from all sides, scientists agree, and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to see the value in being human.


TIME


How do we navigate a present when we are increasingly preempted and post-everything?

When systems like credit-based finance consume a future before it has arrived, and new technologies are emerging faster than our ability to conceptualize their implications, the future becomes a better key to the present than the past. How to constructively think beyond the limitations of immediacy and find narratives that mobilize us from the perspective of a successful future? 


OLD MODELS


We can’t speak of nature without speaking of ourselves at the same time. The electron does not have objective properties independent of the observer’s mind. “What we observe is not nature itself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.” (W. Heisenberg)

Belief at an individual level changes the observer and belief at a collective level changes the observed world.
