experiences in the real

Social research underway.

This project considers how individuals characterize, describe, and express their own experiences with wanting or having a chosen family.

LIFENOTLIVED.AI

genetic therapies + digital forensics services

Social research complete. Product in development.

LIFENOTLIVED.AI is a Queer time machine. Like all Queer time machines, this time machine provides agency by enabling travelers to locate, intervene, make changes, (re)create episodic memories (memories based on real lived experiences), imagine, and activate alternate realities. These experiences can lead to closure, relief, and/or reset.

LIFENOTLIVED.AI is used to make profound changes to internal and external existence. This time machine is made real through genetic engineering and ambient computing technologies. Time travel with LIFENOTLIVED.AI involves several opt-in modification services. Currently services include the “Portrait Mod” service for internal changes and the “Landscape Mod” service for external changes. As needs emerge and use-cases are identified, innovative LIFENOTLIVED.AI services will expand.

The LIFENOTLIVED.AI Portrait Mod makes internal changes. The Portrait Mod service utilizes induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSCs) engineering and synthetic DNA sequences along with genetic therapies to transform an individual's DNA, influence the behavior of an individual’s germline cells (offspring), and enable controlled “blood bonding” or the infusion of genetic material associated with a chosen family. The LIFENOTLIVED.AI Portrait Mod completely alters heritage and ancestry in all directions.

The LIFENOTLIVED.AI Landscape Mod makes external changes. The Landscape Mod service utilizes digital forensics and deep learning to identify and transform an individual's data trail. Forensics results are comprehensive, involving all areas of life including but not limited to all manner of recorded communication and interaction, location and transportation logs, financial details, government records, education histories, medical conditions and treatments, physical activity and related biometrics, social media content, consumer transactions and entertainment choices. Deep learning results are used to inform data corrections, data redactions, or the generation of new material (image, audio, media). At the end of the digital forensics and deep learning phases, the data trail is recuperated and reborn. The LIFENOTLIVED.AI Landscape Mod completely and permanently alters information in all locations.

LIFENOTLIVED.AI is produced by the Queering Futures Research Studio in partnership with Life Not Lived Services Corp (NASDAQ: LNLS), where dreams come true. While not free and open, LIFENOTLIVED.AI will be made available through subscription. Once subscribed, LIFENOTLIVED.AI services require a digital forensics phase and deep learning phase. During these phases the individual, their environment, networks, and relationships are treated as a living dataset for training purposes. Regulatory bodies and ethical guidelines exist to ensure that forensics, deep learning, recommendations, and modifications are carried out safely, responsibly, and with appropriate oversight. Terms and conditions are consensual.

U+1F700

Queering Futures Time Capsule

Social research complete. Product in development.

U+1F700 Queering Futures Time Capsule is a Queer time machine. Like all Queer time machines, this time machine provides agency by enabling travelers to locate, intervene, make changes, (re)create episodic memories (memories based on real lived experiences), imagine, and activate alternate realities. These experiences can lead to closure, relief, and/or reset.

The U+1F700 Queering Futures Time Capsule is used to change episodic memories, or memories that draw on direct lived experience. This time machine is made real through chemistry. Time travel with the U+1F700 Queering Futures Time Capsule involves ritual self-care, bodymind (re)connection, and intentional altered state.

The U+1F700 Queering Futures Time Capsule takes a psychoactive approach to reaching an altered state. U+1F700 utilizes a biotechnology solution informed by Designer Receptors Exclusively Activated by Designer Drugs (DREADDs) research. U+1F700 produces safe and effective highly individualized neurotransmitter transformation and presence modulation. In the altered state, predetermined (targeted) interventions are implemented through a number of controlled strategies that may include the sharing of information, the delivery of care or reassurance, or the initialization of alternative decisions. Interventions change episodic memory.

The U+1F700 Queering Futures Time Capsule enables a traveler to identify a memory, enter an altered state, and intervene. Like all Queer time machines, the Queering Futures Time Capsule time machine provides agency by enabling travelers to locate, intervene, make changes, (re)create episodic memories (memories based on real lived experiences), imagine, and activate alternate realities. These experiences can lead to closure, relief, and reset.

The U+1F700 Queering Futures Time Capsule is produced by the Queering Futures Research Studio in partnership with Queering Futures BioPharm (NYSE: QFB). While not free and open, the Queering Futures Time Capsule is available through prescription services offered through our network of providers. Working with a provider, travelers undergo mirror stage analysis, pharmacogenomic markup, and assessment and diagnostic intervention mapping. Terms and conditions are consensual.

QUEERING FUTURES CONE MATRIX

Social research complete. Proof of concept complete.

The Queering Futures Cone Matrix is a Queer time machine. Like all Queer time machines, this time machine provides agency by enabling travelers to locate, intervene, make changes, (re)create episodic memories (memories based on real lived experiences), imagine, and activate alternate realities. These experiences can lead to closure, relief, and/or reset.

The Queering Futures Cone Matrix is used to access futures in all directions. This time machine is made real through a diagram (a sigil of sorts), scientifical thinking, and hyperfocus. A sigil is a symbol used in magic. Scientifical thinking is a way of processing and believing (Björk, 1988, as presented in G4jima, 2007). Hyperfocus is a state of heightened attention and concentration.

The Queering Futures Cone Matrix is based on the classic futures cone design that originated in the 20th century. An early futures cone is found in a 1993 book, “Alternative World Scenarios for a New Order of Nations,” authored by Charles Taylor, PhD, a strategic futurist at the U.S. Army War College. The Taylor cone was referred to as “The Cone of Plausibility” (Taylor, 1993) and is one of three cones featured in the publication. The Taylor futures cones are all vertical. There is some indication of the past in this series of cones. Another early futures cone is found in a 1993 report, “An Overview of the Health Futures Field for the WHO Health Futures Consultation,” by C. Bezold and T. Hancock. The Bezold and Hancock cone is labeled “Types of Futures.” The Bezold and Hancock futures cone is horizontal, and plots possible, plausible, probable, and preferable futures, along with wildcards. There is no indication of the past in this cone.

The Queering Futures Cone Matrix transforms the classic futures cone design. Queer time, and Queer time travel, is more complex than up, down, left, right. Setting out to redesign the futures cone to meet the needs of Queer time travel, I experimented with several design permutations. These included a stacked cone set, an interlocking cone pattern, and a bi-directional cone set. Ultimately, I arrived at a radial or sunburst system of cones. The final Queering Futures Cone Matrix design represents a full range of possible futures moving in all directions, while providing an open dynamic visual trigger that centers the time traveler in transformative geometry.
