Trash? What's that?

Dream type: Constraint

Every take-out box, packaging, utensils are all compostable, or recyclable. All eating facilities, malls, restaurants, cafeterias have a mandatory recycling program for patrons where there are available containers for recyclables and compost. It will become second nature for Californians to know which are recyclables, compostable, and actual trash, and the norm to see those available containers in all public areas. Also, that all households in California recycle everything that is recyclable, and have very little, to no trash. This dream is already a reality in one Bay Area city, a local mall, and in some homes. Let’s continue this dream.

The Best Dream Keeps on Going!

Dream type: Constraint

This dream that I am imaging is amazing. It could happen in the next few years. This would help everyone. There would be more homeless societies. Many homeless people die everyday from not having food, jobs, or places to live. Next we would make a system where there will be no polution. That would help us and the animals. Also, I would want there to be more security gadgets. Many people are losing special things because they are being robbed. My dream is great and with the things we have and California has together we can make a change!

A Calling of Humanity

Dream type: Transformation

December 25th 2020. I’m 33 today and filled with hope and gratitude. Project Evolve which started in California is now worldwide. The Golden State inspired the world through arts/entertainment and now leads us into the Golden Age. Project Evolve tapped into the shift in the human consciousness and created an interactive website. Connecting local citizens with common goals/interests to better their communities. We believed it would take technology and heart to bring harmony back to earth. It soon manifested into "Evolve" events/contests with workshops and research projects. Project Evolve has become a calling for all humanity to work together.

Land of Technology and Education

Dream type: Transformation

Problems that plague California can be solved with new, undeveloped technologies. Fossil fuels eliminated, disasters avoided, hunger ended, and pollution eliminated. We need to invest heavily in education to achieve this. Tomorrow's scientists need the best recourses available to them, which means better education. A better education can be reached by granting the schools more money and computerizing the educational system. We need to make schools a place kids want to be not have to be. If you want to change a society you need to first change its schools for the future will be decided by its posterity.

Critical Party

Dream type: Transformation

"A sober-minded assessment of risks and resources" leads California to re-valuate the breadth and depth of its cognitive surplus. Now "California knows how to party" even better and my work feels moar like play. I participate in a superstructure called Critical Party QG. We mash up pop culture with stigmergy networks to produce lively collaboration contexts and project coordination strategies. As a Memeticist, I research Other People's Metaphors and measure their semantic integrity. The strongest bridges support most of tomorrow's parties (edge innovations). This is planetary stewardship with SyCC beats (strongly connected components)!

5 QUESTIONS - [ the departure to an utopian synthetic biology future ]

Dream type: Transformation

Year 2018 - the Anthroposophists are the scientific forefront in Synthetic Biology. The story explores one possible future for Synthetic Biology through an paradigm- shift. This made it possible to create a synthetic world tailored to the holistic mindset of the Anthroposophical Society. It raises the question how far we would go with engineering the nature to our needs and how this could be justified with fairly questionable thinking.

The Isles of California

Dream type: Transformation

After the catastrophic collapse of the North Atlantic Conveyor in 2011, society struggled to cope with sudden re-glaciation and seemingly instantaneous 150-foot sea level rises. Time-lapse satellite photography would show California appearing to 'sink' into the ocean, as populations sought higher ground in the coastal range, Sierras, and westward. As local communities re-formed in the hills above a new coastline, they would come to call themselves the "Water Tribes." A typical day would see vertical hydroponic farms, teams of recovery divers pulling up lost treasures, and portable osmotic desalination and power generators cobbled together by refugee engineering talent.

Algal Bloom

Dream type: Transformation

Mayor Villaraigosa's creation of the LA Cleantech Corridor™ (2008) lay the groundwork for a restoration of the once-mighty Los Angeles River. Funded by water bonds, and powered by permaculture and synthbio, the campaign was long - with the waterway formally declared 'clean' in late 2015. 18 months after 'mission accomplished', a collosal algal mat floats beneath the East LA Interchange, filtering toxins from the water; in Paramount and East Compton, green algae provides an emerging Nutrition Commons; and further downstream, the marijuana sharecroppers of Long Beach use unlicensed channels to rerout water - irrigating their backyard plantations for free.

Citizen Teachers & Neighborhood Universities

Dream type: Transformation

I'm going to a bioengineering class taught by my friend Kurt, who has a PhD in the area, 10 years of experience, and some free time. Kurt recently finished the Citizen Teacher program that trains people to teach California standard college-level courses in their neighborhoods. I'm pursuing a degree in bioengineering, taking single classes while working full-time. I'll apply for a medical research grant with my community lab soon. I receive a group text that there will be a pop quiz tonight. I review my notes and quiz the other students in the state-organized ride-share. It's in the bag.

As an LA based filmmaker and artist I will have sold projects that portray a more positive future for humanity as a result of my work with the Millennium Project's Global Arts and Media Node http://www.millennium-project.org. I will have a TV series on the air and web that I am producing with a great team that showcases futurists, innovators, visionaries and inventors and their solutions for a better future in all areas of life -- education, health and medicine, entertainment, business, fashion, home lifestyle, travel, transportation, science, etc. This show will inspire viewers to see a vision for a more evolved humanity and hope for a better future. Ideas that will inspire creation and implementation. http://www.c3so.com
