The Orpheus Project

Dream type: Transformation

California will host the most spectacular singular site ever envisioned as an international venue that blends the arts, medicine, and technology—strategically designed to awe, inspire, and simultaneously heal people around the world. The Orpheus Project is inspired by Orpheus, who moved the masses with the sweetness of his music, and inspired much of the literature, poetry, and drama of ancient Greece and Rome.

Dream it, Plan it, Do it: A Citizen Engagement Game

Dream type: Transformation

The text message: Vote by 5p! The issue: Regional jobs plan. Eligible participants passed previous game levels. They understand the issues and know their elected officials. Citizens are informed and involved. Counties compete for highest participation rates. Cities compete for best in County. The winners: All Californians. People interact to discuss issues, wearing buttons to prompt dialogue. Politicians heed the opinions of the informed and engaged. Concerned citizens mobilize for concerted action to improve society. Buying power and voting power is harnessed. Better use of resources and greater appreciation for humanity are the results.

The Republic of California

Dream type: Growth

Cutting redwoods for cigar boxes built the wine country. Business too big to fail failed. The undergrowth flourishes. I like our "economic ecosystem;" no room for sentiment… Cali succeeded from the Union, we are self-sufficient, and the parasites went home. Those that love CA stayed home. Institutionalization died but brought collaborative networking. LA has to live within her means. The rising oceans are stemmed by locks sandwiching the Golden Gate. The Interstate system is only open to electric commercial traffic. I like High Speed Rail and bicycles. California is the new cradle of civilization, a new Greece.

Pollution

Dream type: Collapse

Another day in California of 2020; broken buildings, garbage lying around, the smell of burnt plastic, dirty people and smelly pets. My job stinks: I get paid minimum wage (5000$ an hour), my job is dirty and disgusting, and I'm very hungry. I'm walking home, past broken cars, and robotic cops. I almost get into one of those street fights, but sneak past it. I put on my gas mask as I went past a local factory. I'm finally home. But it's a very cheap home (1,500,000$ a month). Life was better 10 years ago.

Lifelong University of California. Meet needs in a rich experience!

Dream type: Transformation

My father resented the wealthy for their mobility, breadth of opportunity and network. I’m a mobile, skilled student worker. I check the local 'need feed', taking lead if I have experience and otherwise learn from others. The solution database guides teams and adopts our breakthroughs. Universities were expensive and detached. Why learn one discipline, when I can follow my interests month to month? I learn with others through action and skilled peers help me enact my ideas. I may work near dad next week, and work with friends in LA after.Life is a continuum of experience and results.

Accept the Challenge

Dream type: Growth

I see the kids playing tag. Each student laughing as they get their daily run in. Much easier then doing a mile in P.E. like I did when I was a kid. I clapped my hands and they ran over. Each one smiling. Time for snack! I brought over cups of yogurt and fruit for little Greg who was lactose intolerant. "Remember kids, today we are learning about ancient China. It's time to Sumo-wrestle!" I told them. We transformed the future. I see California as a fun learning environment with new healthy changes. Accept the challenge!

A Health Priority: Keeping Your Good Health

Dream type: Transformation

California does not focus on Illness, where being sick is the norm, but California focuses on keeping and maintaining each person’s good health, from childhood to adulthood. Promoting a healthy lifestyle and prevention is California’s health priority. Life is not about the latest medicines, the latest glucose monitor, it’s not about looking towards your weekly trip to the outpatient clinic, but it’s about enjoying life, free of ailments, as a result of all the many simple, inexpensive, even free, ways and techniques you have been educated and informed with on how to keep yourself stress-free, relaxed, laughing, positive, and happy.

Plant a Tree

Dream type: Transformation

My dream is that there will be no air pollution. Every person will plant a tree in their backyard or the park so we can breathe fresh air.

The New Argonauts

Dream type: Growth

On the way to work this morning, I run over a pothole. Momentarily annoyed, I take solace in knowing that simultaneously my car tagged its GPS location into the open source city database. Halfway through my day, I remember that I need to renew my drivers license so I log onto my personalized iCali government page and flip a gchat to Annie over at the DMV. At night, I fall asleep astounded that only six years ago government relied on forms and phones for those services and proud that Californians are leading the world towards the new society.

The REAL internet of things! The intelligent underground pipline.

Dream type: Transformation

I've got to get my widgets to market! I load them onto an intelligent, autonomous vehicle which ferries them to The Pipeline hub - an underground "cargo superhighway" which connects the world the way the internet connected us electronically. The products are loaded into a pod, propelled magnetically to a distribution center outside the city which has its own terminal. There the widgets are divided and combined with other widgets and sent on their way, autonomously, to depots around the region. Highways are clearer, the air cleaner. Californian companies manufacture and export the machinery, and generate billions in revenue.
