The Study of Potential Futures (i.e. futurology), is historically practiced by futurists and has been developed since the 1960s. It has for-profit organizations, i.e. enterprises and businesses, as its primary market, however it is increasingly providing services to smaller yet scalable community and societal models as-well as for governmental agencies, perhaps traditionally for sectors unrelated to security (like urbanism, education, the future of work etc.). It is characterized by a pro-peace utopian view, a stress on human intent, a special multi-disciplinarity concentrating on economy and business, technology, some elements of sociology and anthropology, literary criticism, and philosophy, according to its founding fathers’ outlook and associated writings. It also tends to have been influenced by post-modernism. It is most often taught in business schools or part of business programs, such as the Wharton School, Turku’s Finland Futures Research Centre, or the University of Houston. Hawaii Research Center for Futures Studies seems to be an exception to the rule as it is part of the department of political studies.
Interdisciplinary research into the root-causes of the current global state of affairs is key to further understand our civilization’s urgent needs and its balance with the biosphere. We gather data, analyse and assess potential future scenarios, acknowledge the industrial and governmental structures which have encased nations and societies into unnatural self-destructing paths, and provide foresight and insight into what is likely to happen and how we can design course-correcting efforts towards new sustainable pro-human projects and solutions.
Together with junior and senior researchers and academics we establish R&D programs on inter-locking fields and disciplines for the pursuit of (r)evolutionary strategies and new models for the transformation of centralised systems and industries, designing scalable solutions to tackle the world’s imperative problems while inspiring the latest generations into recognising how this can be done. Scientific and Social development should never be subjected to funding rules, corporate, governmental and/or institutionalised outcomes and profitable expectations.
The divulgence of results is paramount for the implementation of co-operative solutions, either through open platforms and independent publications. We believe that generating inspiration through the arts sector is also a great way to inspire and encourage youngst(a)rs and adults through training and educational programs which can assist and train local groups to duplicate and create their own initiatives.
Our Action Committee entails the implementation of strategies required to generate cooperation within the academic community, local governmental representatives and other organisations, to directly interfere in constructive ways to the regulating local institutions of government with the sole purpose of defining and reinforcing appropriate measures to imperative problems regarding economic-societal and environmental concerns and needs.

The Space Treaty for the 21st Century
The Ban of all space-based weapons is a pivotal instrument for security, prosperity, and sustainable development for all nations.
The Treaty on the Prevention of the Placement of Weapons in Outer Space establishes a framework and procedures to assure that space will be a neutral realm from which all classes of space-based weapons are banned and from which no hostile action shall be taken toward beings or objects on Earth or in space from space.
This Treaty invites Nation States to become Signatories to this Treaty and invites all Nation States, with recognition to Indigenous Nations, to commit to plan and assist in the orderly development and implementation of a framework and procedures that will assure and verify that space is and will remain to be a peaceful neutral realm from which all classes of space-based weapons are banned in perpetuity. Peaceful international cooperative space exploration, research and development can continue as now is the time to replace strategies and technologies of violence with strategies of Space Age cooperation that solve problems instead of creating new ones.
SRI’s Fractal Solutions Lab (FSL) & the Science Fair Initiative
With more than two decades of privileged access to advanced information and projects which have involved the most pioneering minds of the last two centuries, and together with multidisciplinary research into theoretical physics and advanced concepts, SRI prepares to share and continue its path through the Open Research methodology, by inviting academics from all disciplines and nationalities to join minds and efforts into putting together all the pieces of the puzzle to help define a gross Unified Field Theory that will allow the academic world and the latest generations into the outstanding imminent possibility of developing non-polluting over-unity technologies for energy-access and the production of materials, triggering the decentralisation of the manufacturing process and therefor the supply of unlimited basic needs and resources that will eventually allow humanity to transcend the current non-viable path of self-destruction and collateral ecosystem deterioration.
We are now in the initial stages of attracting passionate scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs which, together with other organisations and academic institutions, can enrol to pursue their own passion and research within the framework of The Hyper-Dimensional Model, which has already been corroborated and recognized by the most advanced research and outstanding pioneering minds on the planet.

There are two ways to try to scale a blockchain: fundamental technical improvements, and simply increasing the parameters. Increasing the parameters sounds very attractive at first: if you …
He has been called “the first poet of technology,” “the greatest living genius of industrial-technical realization in building,“ “an anticipator of the world to come – which is different from being a prophet,” “a seminal thinker,” and “an inspired child.” But all these encomiums are fairly recent. For most of his life, R. Buckminster Fuller was known simply as a crackpot.
“Thousands of years ago, the first man discovered how to make fire. He was probably burned at the stake he had taught his brothers to light. He was considered an evildoer who had dealt with a demon mankind dreaded. But thereafter men had fire to keep them warm, to cook their food, to light their caves. He had left them a gift they had not conceived and he had lifted darkness off the earth.
Due to obvious issues concerning Privacy, Censorship and Non-biased services and platform on the internet, we believe people should re-consider how they access and use the internet; major concerns have exploded in recent years and we strongly suggest users to read more about this clear violations of privacy by #BigTech giant corporations, like Google, Apple, FaceBook, Twitter, Amazon and others, which are and have been for many years on the pursuit of information control and social engineering and manipulation.
