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.

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.

Revolutionary Uses of Space to Strengthen California

Dream type: Growth

New space technologies will address many pressing California needs. Every day, California citizens will benefit from uses of space for wildfire location and fighting, increasing agriculture output, strengthening border security and first responder and law enforcement, water resources management, educational effectiveness, disaster (earthquake?) mitigation and recovery, entertainment, health management, and even the arts. The industries that create and exploit space systems will be a significant source of new jobs and economic prosperity in California. Future California industries will provide orbital communications and sensing systems, factories, hotels and even orbiting power production systems delivering products and services for the entire Earth.

California: From Sim to Saved

Dream type: Growth

Thanks to a highly interactive, realistic, and dramatically compelling sim application, negotiations and conflict resolution becomes more available and affordable. In a safe, learning environment, people can see the true scope of a problem and experience how it looks from all stakeholders. Then they can work toward a viable solution, which they can then take to the real world.

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.

Schools Overthrown by Online Homeschooling

Dream type: Transformation

I'm a mother of two, living in the Bay Area in 2018. Like most other people I know, I've pulled my kids out of the failing school system. It was an obvious choice when I saw how many interactive, self-directed learning resources are out there now, free with the standard Internet connection that follows us everywhere. My kids love learning again, because they get to pick what's relevant to them and go at their own pace. The world is our classroom, and we find friends wherever we go. Much better than sitting in a backwards school box all day.

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!

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.

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.

Collaboration in the Face of Collapse

Dream type: Collapse

After catastrophic failure in the San Joaquin delta, crippling water shortages strike much of California. Economic failure and mass exodus ensue. The wealthy retreat to fortressed communities. Those of us who stay contend with abject poverty. Yet in the face of such desperation, cooperation and efficiency abound. Food, shelter, and services are shared. I start a community garden with friends, watered through rain catchment and greywater. Materials from the glut of abandoned buildings are scavenged and recycled. Services no longer available from the shuttered private sector nor the bankrupt government are now provided through collaborative efforts and the underground economy
