Future Rising
Intentionality – Escaping Fate
Show Notes

In today’s episode of Future Rising, we consider how intention affects not only how we think about the future, but our attitudes toward changing it.

In this episode I refer to the Terminator movies, and John Connor’s famous line “The future is not set. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves.”

It is, admittedly, a bit of a trivial link, but it does illuminate the difference between being passive versus active participants in crafting the future. It’s also a subtle nod to my previous book Films from the Future, which explores socially responsible science and innovation through sci-fi movies, but which sadly does not include The Terminator!
