Bona fides / After COVID-19
The paradoxically, simultaneous superposition of multiple parallel timelines is derived from James Dators’ four generic images of the future. Here, we see a modified version, where breakdown and breakthrough are two sides of the same coin. Directionality and controllability also indicate coordinates for the different, but simultaneously emerging images of the future. A new beginning, a perfect storm, another world that is possible, and a higher calling regarding values, technological implementation, and self-actualization, all together configure the constitution of our current situation around the COVID-19 pandemic. We act in good faith, with sincere intentions, honest and open ambitions for moving above and beyond the present shock. The superposition of timelines is not in any specificity delineated, instead, each and every one of us can envision their individual open-end, non-linear narrative.
