Remembering the Future

Probably a main reason I spend a lot of time trying to breathe some life into forgotten history, is I want to revive the idea of an attainable sustainable future. I’m no longer a young man, so this can’t be about me personally as much, although I do have a stake in the outcome. Yet I find myself driven to “keep the memes alive”.

The forgotten history is like a fading memory of a whole civilization, the one we might have built, the subjunctive future. My dad subscribed to The Futurist, a magazine, and I absorbed the notion that the future is something we plan for. Dad planned for a living.
