A message from the Future Based team:

Exactly one year ago we were forced to make a shift from offline to online events. And wow, we’ve organized over 15 events and welcomed over 250 participants from all over the world. Now that Spring is slowly creeping up on us, we feel that it is time to take a breather. So, starting from March till May we are going to re-think the structure of our platform, while you enjoy your offline life. We will be back with new small events on location , combined with a wonderful online programme in which we aim to integrate the offline with the online. If you want to collaborate or explore the possibilities of hosting your event on Future Based, please reach out to us at goodnews@futurebased.org.

Thank you for being part of our community!

Furthermore, the different perspectives on the function of imagination, represents a wider perspective on questions on human knowledge: how we obtain knowledge and which beliefs we hold about the methodologies in acquiring knowledge. Special contributors are among other professor Vincent Icke, Astropreneur Nancy Vermeulen and Cybrog anthropologist Marques D Anderson. https://scientificimagination.org
