Our Entangled Future - Short Stories to Empower Quantum Social Change
We need stories that confront the limitations of a dualistic, deterministic, and inanimate worldview and instead offer insights into a reality that is connected, entangled, uncertain, and ripe with possibility – a world of complementarity, non-locality, and potentiality. Recognizing the power of language, meaning, and metaphors to create a new reality, we are particularly interested in stories that capture the potential for quantum social change. Although numerous anthologies of climate change fiction have been published, most emphasize dystopic or apocalyptic visions of the future. At this extraordinary point in history, we need to bothimagine and actualize alternative “not-yet-here” realities. In the long and short term, activating such a shift may represent the only truly successful adaptation to climate change.
