What would it be like and feel like to live in a future world with community, technology, and adventure for all?
Telling stories can help us make what seems abstract become real and clear in our minds. Therefore we have created a storytelling bounty based on Creon’s vision of a positive future imagining a world where we have had a shift in the human nature that makes it possible for all to have flourishing lives.
Imagine a shift in human nature where we could all have love, community, technology, and adventure, as well as a lack of severe hardship or fear. This pivot of humanity depends on a pivot on the individual level to make it happen.
To some extent, things are already pivoting towards the kind of future we could all have with love, community, technology, and adventure, as well as a lack of severe hardship or fear. Experiences such as community gatherings and collaboration are prime examples of what everybody could have in the fantastic future.
While it may feel less obvious that the collective world is shifting in that direction, things are still seemingly getting better for most people. Of course, there is suffering and danger, but it does not bode well to go invading another country anymore. In a way, these are hopeful signs of progress. We have been learning a lot over the last few years. Now we need to continue learning at a rapid rate.
People have to fall in love with their lives, fellow humans, civilization, and the future. On the one hand, some might say, “You are proposing a change in human nature and that will never happen.” I am not so sure though. I think humans are changing, not uniformly or quickly, but in a positive direction. Things like slavery, brutal combat, and warfare used to be commonplace and they are now anomalies on the way out. So the pivot of humanity depends on this pivot on the individual level to make it happen.
Use this event as a story-device to show us the picture of a day in a life where this happens. How would this make us feel? How would we react? What hope can people get from this?
