There is a shift in The Matrix . Something has happened. Most of the people haven’t noticed anything … yet. But we are many who have. The tone and the conversation is different. We have started rallying against all that is wrong in the world. We have started to look for ways to hack our common future. Or maybe it is just possible we are already live in The Matrix … A Simulated Universe. Like the discussion in this panel lead by Neil deGrasse Tyson –>
[2016 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: Is the Universe a Simulation?]
And then hacking it should be more easy?
The stereo sound was very confusing so I made a Mono mp3 file 🙂

Leading From An Emerging Future
This week is Earth Day. Where we celebrate our Spaceship Earth, the way we want it to be. This week I also took part of the follow-up live session for U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society, and Self with Otto Scharmer. It’s a new way of thinking when it comes to create the future, the way we want it to be. It’s all about presenting the future to become, and then go create it. Prototype it as you go and learn to really listen and sense, the best possible future. Then act on what we collectively are feeling and thinking on this future. It really works. There are parts of this that are already accepted science and practices. Some call it Fake it till you make it. Others call it Priming your brain. We can together incrementally, hack our brains and reality to reach a new level of understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
Also The Collapse of Nature and Transgressive Border Crossing is the latest episode of Orphan Black. The latest season has picked up on the Neolutionist Body Hacking story. It’s about hacking your own body. Something that many futurists think will become a common practice soon.
Dr. Leekie: Neolution is an open-source concept. We embrace the fringes. They’re fiction to our science.
Beth: Well, your book inspires them to play God… to tinker on themselves in basement labs.
Dr. Leekie: Every scientific discovery in history, including God, began with tinkering in a basement.
Beth: God was a scientific discovery?
Dr. Leekie: A little joke. We’re all impatient for the future.
If we are going to hack the future, let’s make sure we make it a good one!
