Storytelling Into The Future

Storytelling Into The Future

Welcome Traveler 4488 …

Can you use a narrative from Science Fiction to change our “real” Narrative?

As I watch the fantastic Travelers series on Netflix I jump up and down in my sofa thinking on my own mission – our mission. The mission to build a better world here on Planet Earth. Like in the “hypothetical” that I was sent here from another planet to make planet Earth the best place to live and visit in the entire Milky Way Galaxy.

travelers-netflix

It is a Narrative that has been in my mind at least since I was 15. And I have used it many times to get my bearing for my compass into the future and as a silly “What If?” Question.

The question I get in my mind so frequently is this:

Am I alone in thinking about my Narrative in this way?

Clearly, the makers of great Science Fiction and other awesome stories think a lot about the messages they bury into their stories. My whole life I have been going alone not having anybody to talk about how to use this for real. Even now in my newfound quest as a Change Maker in a big global network of change makers I have yet to find many people, who get’s as excited as I do when I watch stories and then immediately what to discuss the story behind the story. Surely there must be a whole network of writers to the many great Sci-Fi series like the Travelers, Continuum, Orphan Black, Black Sails, The OA, Battlestar Galactica and of course Star Trek and others that meet at events and talk about this, or is there?

Must I move there to talk about this? Can I host events here in Sweden about it?

What I’m referring to now is that I would love to put together and host a very special and cool launch and premier event for the world premiere of Ghost In then Shell movie. The old Ghost in the Shell (GitS) movie from 1995 and of course  The Matrix  movie that was directly inspired by it both changed my life in so many ways. I now want to bring this conversation into the open – How new movies and TV-series can change the life of so many more people.

Or is it me being too silly for my own good and just think, that this is way cooler than it is?

Then we have futurist like Jason Silva that just makes me think otherwise. He really get’s in a creative spin and mind rush when watching some really good storytelling.

Watch or listen to Jason Silva on Impact Theory about it.

The Myth Gap

the-myth-gap

And in his latest book, The Myth Gap and his talk on the RSA Alex Evans gives a very compelling insight into why storytelling is so important. He even quotes my favorite author Terry Pratchett on the subject:

People think that stories are shaped by people when actually it’s the other way around – Terry Pratchett 

It’s about this time in history – our must crucial yet. This is the time where we set the story and “The Myth” about who we are as a species and what we want our future societies to become.

Who Are We?

Both Travelers and Ghost In The Shell ask really profound questions about who are as individuals and as a species and who we can be and where we are going.

ghost-in-the-shell

Questions I have been pondering my whole life. Questions I want dig deeper into to find our quest. Questions I want to lift up to the surface to talk more often and vividly about. That’s what I do as Captian Future 🙂

Sillion Valley here I come!

As I now finally launches my company Sillion Valley I at least want to dig deeper into this what I can do as Lord Sillion – Capitan Future.

I will dedicate the whole of 2017 to see how I can apply “Ontological Design” in using stories and conversations about how we actively design the society and future we want. To be “A Force For Good“, like Dalai Lama and Daniel Goleman puts it in his latest book by the same name. To totally change the conversation this year.

What we focus on and what we talk about is what will happen. It’s how the brain works. And lately, the conversation has been about special events and special people who we don’t want.

Let’s instead focus on what we want. Start testing what we can do. To prototype it into existence. Build a global network of trust with Change Makers – Rebels – Guardians – Stewarts and Captains of Spaceship Earth.

Who is with me?

Who wants to create cool events around Sci-Fi and “What If?” Questions with me?

Are We The Passengers? Or The Crew?

Are We The Passengers? Or The Crew?

Watching Passengers I can see the parable to our story.
Are we the Passengers?
Or are we the Crew?

Just like my last text on The Revenant this is also about being slumbering awake or wide awake. My movie reviews is usually about what I take with me after watching a good story – The open and the hidden messages and parables.

Narration and Narrative

Much can be said for the movie’s story – the Narrative – and the Narration. I will go into deep thoughts of what spurred me and what I take with me as I narrate this to myself 🙂

MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD!!

We humans have lived on earth for a long time. We do so in an ecosystem with gazillions of symbiotic creatures living both inside us and around us in “Nature”. It is only now in the last 100 years that we have new narrative to consider. That just like the passengers of Avalon we are traveling on a spaceship through space. Most of us are asleep in the sense that this is not included in our daily narration nor in our journeys, missions and quests in life.

The fact that a critical failure, in they way a planetary ecological system works, will be the end many species continued existence as we now it today. Life will go on. We on the other hand may or may not survive a big extinction event. An especially the way live and the system we have curated and given birth to over the last couple of thousand years. Namely our societies, cultures and our entire civilization.

We Live On A Ship

Some have been half awake to the fact that we human are now the biggest force in shaping the future for life on the spherical rock going around the sun. And smaller group have even be “awoken” to and are trying to internalize the narration that this is indeed a ship we live on – going through space. A Spaceship. And just like both the real life versions like ISS or the Apollo missions to the Moon and the numerous versions in fictional stories of Space Fantasy and Science Fiction, we need to treat it like a ship. A ship with functions like life-support and climate-control. We also have a whole crew of species “running” the ecosystem. There is also us Humans. Who have just stumbled half awake onto the bridge and accidentally started pressing a lot of buttons in what Otto Scharmer calls “Organized Irresponsibility“. Now wide awake we Captains of the Bridge has to come up with a way not to crash or self destruct our ship before the time runs out.

Sounds like any kind of movie you are familiar with?

Wake Up!

Well Passengers certainly got me thinking in these terms. It also raises some other interesting “What If?” questions. Like: What is right to do? In the beginning Jim is faced with the question if it is right to wake Aurora. Then later we all learn that he should awoken many more because they would have been doomed anyway. So what first seemed selfish and questionable later turned out to be essential to the brink of being fatal. Back to that soon.

So what is mine and your quest? Our quest?

Who shall we awake from the dream that everything is going to be okay? (or “Not” okay). In an awake state we can narrators of our own life. To make the change we want to see in the world.

Here we have heroes like Elon Musk, with his awakening projects and companies like Tesla and Space X, being a big role model how we can do this on a larger scale and still within the narration of the old capitalist system. We have Narrator and entertainer Leonardo DiCaprio awaken us with both factional stories like The Revenant and the documentary Before The Flood. Injecting us with inspiration to do more and be fully awake and alive in our surroundings.

It’s Skill Time!

What are your skills as crew-member? And what skills do you want to learn to be part of the journey on this ship?

I think we both need to specialize in deep-skills that it take years to master. In an ever evolving dance of lifelong learning and adapting.

And we need the type of Meta skill that Joshua Cooper Ramo calls the Seventh Sense. The ability to se and understand the networks world we live in and that are on the horizon of the future.

And for that we have all the tools and skills that Peter Senge and Otto Scharmer has bundled up as Theory U. The skills of Presencing, Crystalizing and Prototyping the future we want to emerge.

Evolving The Future

Going back to Jim and his decision only to awake Aurora could have been a much better decision to wake more people. Well he tried to wake the crew but failed in his defence. Still with the proper training of Presencing skills he could have sensed a future coming where he definitely would have needed a hole team to prevent the missions from failing and everyone from dying.

How do we create and evolve the networks, hubs, events and meetups? Where all this happens? How do we create positive Social Fields – Collective Behavior Patterns? So that we can take the collaborative steps in ensuring that this spaceship runs well and continues to evolves us and all living things into a prosperous flourishing future?This is where I see my role – and my need to learn – the skills needed – to nourish this Awakening. To become a Evolutionary Leader. And you can too by studying some of the:

[Seven Competencies of Evolutionary Leadership as Foundational Framework for Developing Designers of Alternative Economic Futures]

Does anything of what I have said so far intrigue you?
Does it resonate?
What are your thoughts?

It sure intrigues me. That is why call myself Captain Future. A silly way to talk about the need for a crew of Spaceship Earth. And it’s not a solo job. I need a core team of crew members and they need me. And we need many mote teams working in unison to solve our missions and quests.

Are you with me?

Matt Damon – Our Future Quest

Matt Damon – Our Future Quest

Matt Damon is favorite actor of mine, as to may others, as will be come clear in a few seconds. Not only has he done some awesome roles in some awesome movies like Good Will Hunting, Rounders, The Informant and The Martian. He is also awesome in real life, where he uses his powers to do good in the world. So when I came across this commencement address at MIT this year 2016 my mind was blow away, how he articulated our challenges and our opportunities to solve them.

matt-damon

Movie Magic!

Movies and storytelling is more important than you may think. I would go as far as to say that they are the number one source of shaping our future here on Spaceship Earth. I have talked a lot about the power of storytelling before: The Storytelling Animal.

This is of course one of the reasons we look up to people like Matt. Also like someone said in the comment to the speech: Matt is far better at leading us into the future than what traditional leaders and politicians are. And still he makes it very clear that he isn’t running for office. No one sane person wants to dedicate their entire life into “gaming” that old system.

Could we then use movies and science fiction to show and tell people about alternative ways to lead and run Spaceship Earth? I most definitely think so.

The Simulation Argument

Do we live in a simulation or is the entire universe a simulation?

It’s topic that has come up several times this year. Elon Musk mentioned it and here Matt Damon refers to a fascinating conversation on the topic with Neil deGrasse Tyson this spring that I have written about before too: #HackTheFuture.

I also just read this article on BBC on it today: We might live in a computer program, but it may not matter.

Be The Best You

Here is Matt’s take on it:

There is a possibility we live in The Matrix.
That our entire universe is a simulation. What to do then?
Do really interesting things so the simulators don’t shut you down.
What if the universe isn’t a simulation?
Either way … What we do matters … What we do affects the outcome.
Because this world, real or imagined, has some problems that we need to drop everything to solve.

And by that he means what I’m doing and talk so warmly about. We have to be interesting. To be the best version of ourselves. Constantly levelling up ourselves through curiosity, the right attitude and lifelong learning.

By Hacking our own future!

Turn Towards The Problems You See

Turn Towards the problems you see and look them in the eye.

What are you going to do about them?

Look at the world and see it for what it is.

Hack The Future!

We don’t have all the answers. And that is ok. It is a lifelong quest to find new insights and answers.
Judge me by how good my good ideas are, not how bad my bad ideas are.
You got to suit up in your armour. You to be ready to sound like a total fool.
Not having an answer isn’t an embarrassment, it’s an opportunity.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Continue to listen and do lifelong learning.
Keep listening.
The world needs our ideas, good and bad.
Listen to online lectures and pods. Just keep listing to every part of society.
Democracy demands compromise even when you are 100% right.

Not ever problem has tech solution. We can’t science the shit out of every situation.

There is more at stake today than in any story ever told.
And how lucky we are the we are here and we are us.
Turn towards the problem of your choosing. Drop everything and solve it 🙂

– Matt Damon

So Simulation or not, there is now question what we have to do …

I invite you to join me in this quest to build a better future. There are so many quest we can go and solve together. And many of them are urgent. They are critical if we as humans are going to continue to live here on our Spaceship. Or else we get off at the next stop. And it’s cold and lonely out in space away from our beloved former home.

I choose to believe that the universe loves me and that we live in some kind of Matrix, where I can decide my own future and how I act and what I do. My own form of Free Will 🙂

Lies, Truth and Self-Narration

We all do it! Tell Stories. And almost every one of them we tell to ourself. It is how consciousness works. It’s a story of yourself. And your conscious self can help self-direct it. It’s called making choices. Some say that we don’t have free will. I think they are defining it wrong. We do choices all the time. All based on the previous stories we have stored in our brain. What is a lie then? It’s just a story. Most of the time we can’t tell if it’s “true”. To the brain all things are stories. A conscious lie is when we have two parallel stories of what took place and chooses to tell the other. So how often do you direct your own stories?

How good are you at lying to yourself? [Become a better Self-Narrator!]

Think about for 10 seconds before you read on.

Dan Ariely - Why We Lie

Dan Ariely – Why We Lie

So I have been listening to a lot of different “Stories” on Lying and Self-Narration. For a good start I recommend listening to TED Radio hour: Why We Lie with people like Dan Ariely and Michael Shermer.

“Can’t have champagne wishes without caviar dreams.” – Nolan Ross

As you read this you are watching a movie. It’s a very real movie triggering all of your senses. It is called Consciousness. It’s made up from a very complex source of external and internal sensory inputs, simulations, memories and stories. In order for it all to come together, The Director in your mind, has to cut many corners and throw away lots of material. The Director is a very good liar, or Storyteller as we would like to call it. This is in fact “You” lying to yourself. It all makes sense. This Story, that is you. Sometimes it’s just not “The Truth”. Because for the Brain that is a mythological concept.

“Character Is A Vital Lie” – Ernest Becker

As you interact with the outside world, you are constantly using this story to further you, on your journey through life. Your brain is full of filters that makes everything you experience a very unique experience just for you. Keep that in mind when you interact with others and share your story.

You Always Believe What You Tell Yourself

Belief Or Make Belief

Belief Or Make Belief

When you think of it, this is our greatest gift. Something that should be cherished. It’s also a good skill to have. It’s a form of Masquerade and a Roleplaying Game. You have many internal roles and parts of your brain that blends into a mix that is you and gives rise to your self illusion. With this in mind let’s get better at it. If you want to Change people. Don’t tell them what to do. Tell them a Story that they can internalize and tell to themselves. That can become part of their story.

The Self is a house of Cards – Jason Silva

Life is a Game. Let’s Play Tonight!

Let’s play a little game. I want you to try and tell your story to others and have them tell your story back to you. How does that feel? Now do the same for them. Ask them how does that feel. To to reflect together on how your own story differs from others story about you.

We can all need a little help in the Narration of our own lives. Start spending time with people who are good at Narrating their own life. Then you will become better at narrating your own. We can all Become Gurus of Our Own Life as Jonathan Fields put it. Just remember:

Even if you are alone in your own mind, you are never alone outside of it. 

Become a better Self-Narrator!

The Storytelling Animal [Tell Your Story]

Have you ever come out of the movies like me, filled with excitement and felling totally exalted? Like your brain is on fire? Well Congratulations. You have just given your brain what it desires most in the world. An Awesome Story. Or have you skunked down in the sofa to see some brain-dead action in the hopes of turning your brain off? Not so. It can’t be done. In fact it is when you are in this state that your brains is the most perceptible to hidden messages and meaning in the story. Your brain never switches off. Think off what messages you are receiving when trying not to. Even when you are sleeping your brain is doing what it likes the most. It is making up its own stories drawing from your vast library of stored stories. And why is your dreams is so often filled unrealistic and magical events? Because your brain can’t tell the diffidence. That’s why your dreams all seem so plausible when you are in them. So Dream on …

This is your story

As you read this your brain is telling a story for you. Namely your story about you. If your brain is a healthy one you are the protagonist in this story. Your own personal hero. What if you can help your hero on the way? Let’s find out how you can help your hero along and use storytelling power to change the world.

Exit light, Enter night, Take my hand, We’re off to never never land

Many believe the brain separates fiction from reality. In “reality” the brains stores everything as stories. Humans are creatures of Neverland. We live in Neverland because we can’t not live in Neverland.

It’s best put into a story by Terry Pratchett in thees words by DEATH when he talks to his granddaughter in the novel Hogfather or as dramatized below:

YOU NEED TO BELIEVE IN THINGS THAT AREN’T TRUE. HOW ELSE CAN THEY BECOME? — DEATH

Storytelling is the heart and the soul of human nature. I have recently been reading “The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human” by Jonathan Gottschall. And it has been a 10 year-long wait to read anything inspirational about storytelling since I read “The Science of Discworld II: The Globe“. To say the least, it’s a must read! Or listen to in this excellent audio book 🙂

YOU NEED TO BELIEVE IN THINGS THAT AREN’T TRUE. HOW ELSE CAN THEY BECOME? — DEATH

YOU NEED TO BELIEVE IN THINGS THAT AREN’T TRUE. HOW ELSE CAN THEY BECOME? — DEATH

Why does we like storytelling so much? It’s because our brain runs on stories. Our brain is basically a pattern recognition machine. It likes patterns. And stories are just very big complex meta patterns that our brain can identify and relate to. Our universe does not contain any Narrativium like Terry Pratchett’s Discworld but we humans acts as if it does all the time. That everything that happens for a reason and everything has a purpose and a destiny. This is what makes us humans so special and this is something we should treasure.

It is always the present

The Past like the future does not really exist. They are both fantasies created in our minds. The Future is a probabilistic simulation we run in our minds in order to help shape the world we want to live in.
The Past unlike The Future has actually happened. The Past, as represented in our mind, is a mental simulation too. Our memories are not precise records of what actually happened. They are reconstructions of what happened — Jonathan Gottschall from The Storytelling Animal

Most of us believe our memory is filled with reliable info we can access at will. Not so. But memory isn’t an outright fiction. It is merely a fictionalization of what took place. Memory is an unreliable self-serving historian. It’s there to help us make decisions that help us along for the bumpy ride that reality is.

Perceptions

Here is favorite quote from Emily Thorne in the Revenge tv-show. From the episode “Perceptions” of season 1:

“Years ago, I met a boy who introduced me to a book, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. In it, William Blake writes, ‘If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as infinite.’ But in reality our perception is often clouded by expectations. By experiences. As of late I find my perception is blinded by only one thing. — Revenge”

“Truth is a battle of perceptions. People only see what they’re prepared to confront. It’s not what you look at that matters but what you see. And when different perceptions battle against one another, the truth has a way of getting lost. And the monsters find a way of getting out.”

This captures in a great way how our brain works and how we live our life inside our own little Matrix. Experiences and expectations are all part of our perception of the past and the future. Our place in the story we are telling about our self.

Pan Narrans

Storytelling has been around for as long as we have been humans. And it’s the storytelling itself that first made us into the storytelling chimpanzee we are today. You must embrace fiction. It will make you more empathetic and more able to navigate life’s problems and dilemmas.

Fiction pulls us together and unites us with common values. It’s the core that makes us into a groupish vehicle for our genes to pass down to our offspring as I discussed in my previous blog The Duality of Man [Can we work together?]. We use them to set a shared Moral Matrix for the group.

Epilogue

As result of how successful stories have made us, we are also slaves under them. And they can easily be used to manipulate and mold us. If you want to burrow a message into a human mind. Work it into a story. But if we use the power of story for good, we can use it to change the world to the better.

But you must also use caution when confronted with stories and the “Truth” that many will want to tell you. As you know by now, the truth can never be told but a mere “Truthy Tale” of what happened in the past. Many will believe that their opinions are facts, when they are just that: Opinions.

This also means that we should be tolerant of the myths of all the cultures in the worlds as the bearers of these myths, are most certainly under the spell. Be vary of conspiracy theories as they are often the fiction of a storytelling mind who find patterns all to easily.

The truth is depressing: We are going to die. We are tiny insignificant dots on a tiny planet in a tiny galaxy. We need self-deception to keep depression at bay.
We are Figments of our own imagination. Until the day we die we are living the story of our lives. This story is constantly changing and evolving. It’s being edited and rewritten by an unreliable narrator and this story are more truthy than true.

Enjoy it while it last and make it a good one!

The power of Storytelling

“With great power comes great responsibility” — Stan Lee

Now that you know more of the power of storytelling, will you stop loving stories so much? No, on the contrary, you will be able see life for what it is and enjoy good storytelling even more.

Day dream often! You and I are going to tell a greater story together how life on planet Earth will be in the Future!

Cloud Atlas [Is your life a Drop in the Bucket?] #Blogg100

I have now seen Cloud Atlas several times and it is the best movie to come out in many years IMHO. The  Wachowskis did such great job not selling out to the false assumption that storytelling is just dumb entertainment. Read this Interview with them about it: The Wachowskis explain how Cloud Atlas unplugs people from the Matrix. Storytelling always has been and always will be at the heart of what it is to be human. And Cloud Atlas is a masterpiece in telling a fine story about what is important in life as I will discuss below.

Also check out why I think Storytelling is so important in my posts about Elysium and Pacific Rim

Do our choices define us? [Agency and Kindness]

So the big question this movie asks me is:

Do our choices define us?
Or are they just a rationalization of the mind who can do nothing but apply agency to everything?

Composing is a crusade. Sometimes you slay the dragon. Sometime it slays you

Composing is a crusade. Sometimes you slay the dragon. Sometime it slays you

I’ll start with a quote from my favorite character in the movie Ghost in the Shell.

“That’s all it is: information. Even a simulated experience or a dream; simultaneous reality and fantasy. Any way you look at it, all the information that a person accumulates in a lifetime is just a drop in the bucket.” — Batou, Ghost in The Shell

This is the movie that inspired the Wachowski brothers the most when making The Matrix. So here we are moving our focus right back at the latest Wachowski movie: Cloud Atlas and one of the best quotes:

“Haskell Moore: There is a natural order to this world, and those who try to upend it do not fare well. This movement will never survive, if you join them you and your entire family will be shunned. At best you will exist at pariah to be spat at and beaten, at worse to be lynched or crucified. And for what, for what, no matter what you do it will never amount to anything more than a single drop in a limitless ocean.
Adam Ewing: What is an ocean but a multitude of drops?”

All the drops in this world

A far bigger pond of Drops. And yet we get the feeling that when moving together we can create the greatest of waves. As we can see in the next 2 quotes

“Dr. Henry Goose: Our lives and our choices, each encounter, suggest a new potential direction. Yesterday my life was headed in one direction. Today, it is headed in another. Fear, belief, love, phenomena that determined the course of our lives. These forces begin long before we are born and continue long after we perish. Yesterday, I believe I would have never have done what I did today. I feel like something important has happened to me. Is this possible?

“The nature of our immortal lives is in the consequences of our words and deeds, that go on and are pushing themselves throughout all time. Our lives are not our own, from womb to tomb, we’re bound to others. Past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.” — Sonmi-451

Your whole life is just a Story [From Womb to Tomb]

Weeeee. I just love this kind of Stories and what they carry with them to me 🙂
And why is it that so many movie critics and reviewers often seem to forget that it’s all about the Storytelling.
I blog more about the importance of storytelling in: Engage in Storytelling and This is Your Story. And that all your brain experiences of the world from “from womb to tomb” is just stories.

“Some say to believe in destiny is to dismiss the role of free will.
That Self-determination cannot prevail in the presence of fate.
When the Truth is, the only part of destiny we can control,
is the fate we choose for another.” — Emily Thorn, Revenge

Emily Thorne

Emily Thorne

I think that we must be kind to each others in our choices and in our actions. Kindness will ripple through the Networked society and just maybe, just maybe, it will conquer Greed and Corruption. At least it is a Crusade worth going on. An Epic Quest to be proud of.

Now you must continue to make your choices and tell your story. And remember that you do not make your choices nor tell your story alone. You do this together with others.

Become the pilot in your own brain #Blogg100

#086 [LXXXVI]
Who should pilot your brain? [Vem ska styra din hjärna?]

Vill du ta kontrollen över din egen hjärna? Sätt dig i förarstolen och ta tag i ratten!

Så summerar jag inspiratioen från dagens KONFEX mässa.

Brainzzzz

För mig började det med Jenny Åkerman, Hjärnladyn som berättar hur man man tränar hjärna och kropp att må bra livet ut. Hur ska vi ta på vara kreativitet? Hur ska vi lära oss?

Jag säger att det är genom lek och äventyr som vi lär oss bäst. Jag minns varenda bra lek och äventyr jag hade som liten. Allt!

Sen var det Thomas Boström som gav en väldigt bra insikt i vad som borde ändras i svensk politik. Det bästa vore att man bara fick ha politiskt uppdrag i riksdagen i 2 mandatperioder. Idag är det alldeles för många som håller sig kvar bara för pengarna och inte alls vill jobba med politik längre. Nytt blod hela tiden!

I den lilla salen var det väldigt svårt att se Henrik Schyffert. Alla ville se honom. Jag satt mig på golvet vid sidan av scenen. Han pratade om hur man får fram bra idéer. Genom att behandla alla dåliga idéer som bra. Dom dåliga idéerna vet själva om det och går och självdör. Det är samma som Jenny pratade om att brain-storma. Man får aldrig kritisera någons idé eller den som ger den. Då dör den kreativa processen snabbt.

Vill man ha en bra idé? Ta 2 dåliga och vrid lite på dom så att du ser dom från en ny vinkel. Och det hjälper med Sprit eller annat form av livsrus. Kom bara ihåg att skriva ner dina idéer 😉

Jacqueline Kothbauer pratade om om man är sitt personliga varumärke. Detta har blivit mycket större med Social Media då vi alla marknadsför oss med mycket större räckvidd hela tiden. Allt vi gör blir till vår Story

“What are the Stories you want people to tell about you?” — Jacqueline Kothbauer

Ta tag i Ratten

hyttfors

Sist och bäst var Stefan Hyttfors som nyss vann pris för bästa rookie som talare. Han målar upp en väldigt trolig framtidsbild över alla våra problem som komma skall. Och sen sätter ner foten och säger att vi som människor har förmågan att anpassa oss och lösa problemen om bara vi vill. Det gäller inte bara vara blinda för förändring och bittert klamra oss kvar vid gamla sätt.

Så låt oss ta tag i ratten innan det är försent och bli våra egna Fate-Crafters och skriva vårt eget öde.

A person’s true destiny can only be revealed at the end of his journey.
And the story I have to tell is far from over.

Some say to believe in destiny is to dismiss the role of free will.
That Self-determination cannot prevail in the presence of fate.
When the Truth is, the only part of destiny we can control is the fate we choose for another. — Emily Thorne
