Future Parfait is an art project that imagines an ideal possible future for global civilization starting from the conditions of the present.

Guiding Principles

1.  Civilization currently has the technological and cultural capacity to create an equitable global culture which operates within planetary boundaries and where each individual has the opportunity to self realize.

2.  The arc of civilization shows that mutually beneficial cooperation is a more effective than territorial competition as an evolutionary strategy for human cultures .

3.  The first step towards realising an equitable biophilic civilization for earth is to imagine what that might be, and what paths of action might bring it into being.

SOCIUS

Stories of Lodar, the self-realised everyman, and his friends and their day to day lives in and around Central Shield.
