More recently I have managed to crystallize a simple description of myself: Futurist and Entrepreneur. However that doesn’t explain the diversity of my companies’ activities, and how they fit together. In particular people are often confused by the relationship between our primary companies: Advanced Human Technologies, Future Exploration Network, and The Insight Exchange.

Clarke's three laws

Clarke. They are: When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. Origins[edit] Clarke's First Law was proposed by Arthur C. The second law is offered as a simple observation in the same essay. Réseau 2100 * 2100 network * El red 2100.

Max More : Principes extropiens 3.0 (Hache/essais)

Les Principes extropiens définissent une version ou « marque » particulière de pensée transhumaniste. Comme les humanistes, les transhumanistes privilégient la raison, le progrès et les valeurs centrées sur notre bien-être plutôt que sur une autorité religieuse externe. Les transhumanistes étendent l’humanisme en mettant en question les limites humaines par les moyens de la science et de la technologie, combinés avec la pensée critique et créative.

Nous mettons en question le caractère inévitable du vieillissement et de la mort, nous cherchons à améliorer progressivement nos capacités intellectuelles et physiques, et à nous développer émotionnellement. Ces Principes ne sont pas présentés comme des vérités absolues ou des valeurs universelles. An Optimistic History of the Next 40 Years. The year 2000 as envisioned in the year 1910.

Evolution's Arrow

Evolution is not an aimless and random process, it is headed somewhere. This has significant implications for humanity. Whenever life emerges on any planet, two great evolutionary trends begin. The first trend is towards the formation of cooperative organizations of greater and greater scale. Human societies are currently the largest scale cooperative organizations of living processes on this planet. Our societies are the result of many repetitions of a process in which living entities team up to form larger scale cooperatives. Human cooperative groups began on a small scale as families, families teamed up to form bands, they teamed up to form tribes, tribes teamed up to form the first agricultural communities, they teamed up to form cities, and so on. The second great evolutionary trend on any planet is towards greater evolvability. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Io9. We come from the future.

Green Float concept: a carbon negative city on the ocean. The idea of going offshore to satisfy our renewable energy needs isn't new, but the grand vision of Japan’s Shimizu Corporation goes way beyond harnessing green energy at sea for use in cities on Terra firma – it takes the whole city along for the ride. The company, along with the Super Collaborative Graduate School and Nomura Securities, is researching the technical issues involved in constructing its Green Float concept – a self-sufficient, carbon-negative floating city that would reside in the Equatorial Pacific Ocean.

View all The concept would comprise individual floating cells or districts resembling water lilies with a radius of 1km (0.62 miles) that would form a compact village that could house 10,000 to 50,000 people. Joining these districts together would form a city or module that would be home to 100,000 people, while a group of modules would form a country (though we assume there is some red tape involved before you get a seat at the U.N.). Floating cities in the sky. Four Concepts For The Future That Could Create A More Sustainable World. Earlier this year, Sony teamed up with the Forum of the Future to brainstorm four scenarios of what life will be like in 2025.

Among them: a treadmill of "hyperinnovation" and declining carbon emissions; a scenario of damaging climate change and reactive technologies (like solar paint); a scenario where sustainability and strong community ties are emphasized; and a world where the sharing economy has taken off on a global scale.
