Now I straddle the hemispheres with mixed blood from the old world and the new.

I have wide ranging interests which span the arts and sciences.

So, what shapes my world right now? Well, I'd have to say that I am a futurist. What does that mean? Futurian Kate Craig-Wood has summarized this far better than I could:

"Futurism is the belief that scientific research and technological advancement are western society's two most important endeavors. Futurians promote that view, embrace change, and have faith in our future.

"Futurians believe that anything and everything can be understood, given sufficient time and intellectual resource, and that comprehending the universe in which we find ourselves is of equal importance to driving the progress of technology.

"The old religions are fading in our society, yet many people want to believe in something. Futurism is a religion for modern times, looking to the future not the past, and hopes to be a faith that is good for all of us."

So, thanks you for all your faves and comments in advance since I may not be able to respond to everyone directly. If you take time to comment personally, I am more likely to respond.

I do not wish to share my images outside of the dA community.

I am always happy to share images without watermarks when I get to know you. Please inquire.

As always, welcome to my world! Just having fun!

I found this summary of modern futurism by futurist Kate Craig-Wood. I love it and share it here--

Futurism: A rational religion

Why do we regard Futurism as a religion?

Because it is a system of beliefs which gives us hope of addressing some of those difficult and often disquieting questions. Futurism has similarities and differences to the more traditional religions:

•We have only one tenet: that it is possible to understand and comprehend anything, given sufficient time and intellectual capacity. Belief in science.

•We have only one commandment: Be good (however you personally define it).

•Our priests and priestesses are scientists and technologists (no mumbo jumbo, holy smoke, and storytelling).

•Our holy texts are the ever-updating peer-reviewed scientific and technical publications, rather than static books or scrolls. (Bibles and Korans are exactly what they claim they are: ancient texts. Revelation is nothing more than mumbo jumbo).

•We 'worship' by educating ourselves, in what ever way is best suited to our particular abilities and interests.

•We seek to educate others with reason, logic and fact, not with dogma and myth.

•We promise eternal life through more practical means; the pursuit of medical science and technology.

•Finally, a religion is incomplete without deity. Our deities, the (from current perspectives) all-knowing and all-powerful beings which will have the answers we seek, shall be either ourselves or our children, empowered and enhanced by scientific and technological progress. Faith in the future.
