In designing our way out of the problems that face our current civilization we ought to take heed of important dialogs where ethics meets transhumanism. One such was with WTA co-founder and author of the Hedonistic Imperative +David Pearce and celebrated ethicist +Peter Singer who authored Animal Liberation and The Expanding Circle.

Plenty of rituals - institutionalized days of remembrance - most are focusing on the past. Earth day, James Hughes puts forward Earth Day as something different - in that it has a focus on the future of the planet - specifically environmental sustainability. Earth day has been a successful institutionalization of thinking about the Future of this planet and our relationship to it - we need more of that kind of institutionalization of future-mindedness in our culture.

James, having researched religion, suggests that its surprising how many religions who have interest in the future (i.e. the 2nd coming, end times etc) seem to focus on the past in their days of observance (death & birth of religious figures in the past) - rather than on holidays reflecting on expected future events.

Here is the audio of a previous Future Day discussion with James Hughes: https://archive.org/details/JamesHughesFutureDayMarch1st

Future Day is coming soon on March 1st 2016!
The future is where we all headed - so it's important! If we understand how to think about the future and then act on it, we are more likely to arrive in a future that we desire.
So what kind of specific future do you want?
If you fast forward to the future - what do you imagine it will be like based on your strategies for a) personal achievement? collective achievement (family or something more broad i.e. global)?
