ABOUT

Explore an afternoon as we delve into the convergence of technology and culture. Exponential technologies are re-shaping our collective future in ways we can almost barely comprehend. From quantum to AI to the metaverse and a promise of society and economies decentralized. As we re-enter a state of FutureShock, we’ll learn about the impact these technologies will have on us as individuals, as a society, and the opportunities of a digitally entangled future. If we’re not creating the future - we must to attempt to understand it.

The Solarian Myth states that Love & Intellect are soon to be discovered to be actual measurable physical forces that help hold the universe together. These are forces that exist in the vibrational ether predicted by Super String theory and they form Philotics that connect across great distances. Everything from discussing the strategies for creating as much love and intellect as possible to the interesting solutions or prioritization quandaries it can help solve in the realm of Environmentalism and application of technology as it applies to the Rush to Electrification at the cost of Bio-Diversity.

All ticket holders of our main friday events are invited to join us in the sunshine for closing drinks powered by our good friends at Twilio! We know that by the time happy hour comes around, you’ll have sparked new ideas & will likely be in need of a debrief with your newfound change comrades. So what better way to conclude the afternoon than with celebration of what's been. Don’t forget, Fringe & WOMAD are just around the corner if you want to continue the celebrations into the night & we’ll be in your inboxes shortly after to continue to support your journey in the years to come!
