Futurism quotes by Warren Ellis
#1. To be a futurist, in pursuit of improving reality, is not to have your face continually turned upstream, waiting for the future to come. To improve reality is to clearly see where you are, and then wonder how to make that better. #Quote by Warren Ellis
Futurism quotes by Cindy Pon
#2. I knew my childhood had been rough, and many times I had felt so alone. Daiyu must have experienced a different kind of loneliness. But in the end, maybe lonely was lonely. #Quote by Cindy Pon
Futurism quotes by Philip K. Dick
#3. Dear Jeff,

I happened to see the Channel 7 TV program "Hooray for Hollywood" tonight with the segment on Blade Runner. (Well, to be honest, I didn't happen to see it; someone tipped me off that Blade Runner was going to be a part of the show, and to be sure to watch.) Jeff, after looking - and especially after listening to Harrison Ford discuss the film - I came to the conclusion that this indeed is not science fiction; it is not fantasy; it is exactly what Harrison said: futurism. The impact of Blade Runner is simply going to be overwhelming, both on the public and on creative people - and, I believe, on science fiction as a field. Since I have been writing and selling science fiction works for thirty years, this is a matter of some importance to me. In all candor I must say that our field has gradually and steadily been deteriorating for the last few years. Nothing that we have done, individually or collectively, matches Blade Runner. This is not escapism; it is super realism, so gritty and detailed and authentic and goddam convincing that, well, after the segment I found my normal present-day "reality" pallid by comparison. What I am saying is that all of you collectively may have created a unique new form of graphic, artistic expression, never before seen. And, I think, Blade Runner is going to revolutionize our conceptions of what science fiction is and, more, can be.

Let me sum it up this way. Science fiction has slowly and ineluctably settled int #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Futurism quotes by Shawn Anthony Levy
#4. As opposed to a movie [Real Steel] where everything feels fantastical, it was really important to me, and I recognise it's not the first movie with robots in it, but that blend of naturalism in performance, writing and design with the futurism of this sport. That was the idea. #Quote by Shawn Anthony Levy
Futurism quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#5. We live in a world that values words over thoughts. This is precisely why people talk all the time and don't think! Which is more valuable? Thoughts or words? People may talk about doing something, every day, and end up never doing it because it is not in their thoughts! On the other hand, a person may think about doing something, every day, without speaking of it, and at the end of the day the job is done. The energy is saved as is executed in the final outcome. So which is more valuable? The thoughts of a man or the words of a man? The thoughts of a man are more valuable than his words, because the thoughts of a man are the contents of his mind! And it is the mind of man that makes a man and dictates a man! And so, why do we value words over mental telepathy? Why do we shy away from the notion of mind communication? Why do we value the communication of words over the communication of minds? Is it because most of you do not understand it? Well, you do not understand it because you are too busy talking and not thinking. Not thinking about anything. Here is the big question: Should a thought reader value the words of the man over his thoughts? Are the words spoken the truth or are the thoughts in the mind, the truth? You think about it. You decide. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Futurism quotes by Bruce Sterling
#6. «"Looks like your sci-fi prediction came true right away, Xavier."
"That can be gratifying," mused the novelist. "But not all the time."» #Quote by Bruce Sterling
Futurism quotes by David Frayne
#7. One of the most pressing questions faced by capitalist societies now, at the pinnacle of their productive capacities, is the question of what should be done with the time being saved by these gains in productivity. What meaning and content will we, as a society, choose to give this new-found free-time?
Will we use it to enhance our lives outside work, nourish our relationships and pursue our own self-development, or will economic rationality dictate that we spend just as much time and energy on work as we did before? [ch.one] #Quote by David Frayne
Futurism quotes by David Fleming
#8. Localisation stands, at best, at the limits of practical possibility, but it has the decisive argument in its favour that there will be no alternative. #Quote by David Fleming
Futurism quotes by Sean A. Culey
#9. Like the story of the steam drill against John Henry, the machine will be victorious because it doesn't get tired and keeps on going long after a human worker will have dropped dead from exhaustion. The modern-day steam drill is likely to be an AI system, and John Henry is played by the planner, doctor, analyst, stockbroker or accountant who believes that they can process more data and crunch more numbers than the new machine overlords. They can't. #Quote by Sean A. Culey
Futurism quotes by Douglas Rushkoff
#10. I think there can be a positive sort of futurism even in a presentist society. But I think it's a kind of futurism that envisions augmenting human ability and intellect rather than creating some artificial machine intelligence that displaces us. #Quote by Douglas Rushkoff
Futurism quotes by Michio Kaku
#11. Futurism today is led by science-fiction writers, by sociologists, by historians. Now, I have nothing against them. I'm sure they do great work. But they're not scientists. They're clueless. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Futurism quotes by Syd Mead
#12. In visual futurism, the line between total fantasy and futuristic is a thread of reality. #Quote by Syd Mead
Futurism quotes by Sean A. Culey
#13. The near future is going to be defined by the outcomes of a battle between those in control of the machines, and those controlled by them. Corporations have become richer and more powerful than countries, but without any form of societal contract or responsibility to citizens or communities. They are not the Quakers of old. Their loyalty to you starts and ends with your worth as a consumer and as a data provider. #Quote by Sean A. Culey
Futurism quotes by Brad Holland
#14. Futurism: This was a movement of intellectuals who wanted to replace tradition with the modern world of machinery, speed, violence, and public relations. It proves that we should be careful what intellectuals wish for, because we might get it. #Quote by Brad Holland
Futurism quotes by Frank Herbert
#15. If we define Futurism as an exploration beyond accepted limits, then the nature of limiting systems becomes the first object of exploration. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Futurism quotes by Bruce Sterling
#16. «Once, I went to this little meeting of Microsoft kids. Like, this high-school trip thing, but it was very exclusive. We met the world's greatest Futurist there. Dr Gustav Y. Svante. Nobody knows who he is. That's why he's the world's greatest Futurist. He told us... He said that the future was already here, but nobody listens to the future. The future is all around us, but we don't see the future yet. We don't hear it or see it, so we can't tell it."» #Quote by Bruce Sterling
Futurism quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#17. I try to be rational (or at least my imaginary facsimile of what rationality is supposed to be). I try to look at the available data objectively (fully aware that this is impossible). I try to extrapolate what may be happening now into what will be happening later. And this, of course, is where naïve realism punches me in the throat. There's simply no way around the limited ceiling of my own mind. It's flat-out impossible to speculate on the future without (a) consciously focusing on the most obvious aspects of what we already know and (b) unconsciously excluding all the things we don't have the intellectual potential to grasp. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Futurism quotes by Woody Allen
#18. I foresee death by culture shock. #Quote by Woody Allen
Futurism quotes by Annalee Newitz
#19. How many times had Paladin looked into this human face, its features animated by neurological impulse alone? He did not know. Even if he were to sort through his video memories and count them up one by one, he still didn't think he would have the right answer. But after today's mission, human faces would always look different to him. They would remind him of what it felt like to suffer, and to be relieved of suffering. #Quote by Annalee Newitz
Futurism quotes by Ccru
#20. Neo-China arrives from the future. #Quote by Ccru
Futurism quotes by Edward Teller
#21. Today, nothing is unusual about a scientific discovery's being followed soon after by a technical application: The discovery of electrons led to electronics; fission led to nuclear energy. But before the 1880's, science played almost no role in the advances of technology. For example, James Watt developed the first efficient steam engine long before science established the equivalence between mechanical heat and energy. #Quote by Edward Teller
Futurism quotes by Charles Lee Lesher
#22. The road ahead is long and there will be many setbacks. Success is not assured ... but the price of failure has never been this high. #Quote by Charles Lee Lesher
Futurism quotes by M.C. Humphreys
#23. If you ask me what remains to be known in the future, I'll say, 'Memorize all the world's encyclopedias.' Once you do that, forget all that fancy junk and rake the leaves – else I'm gonna take a stick to you, boy. #Quote by M.C. Humphreys
Futurism quotes by David Frayne
#24. It is crucial we also think beyond workers' rights to confront a broader and more fundamental set of questions: What is so great about work that sees society constantly trying to create more of it? Why, at the pinnacle of productive development, is there still thought to be need for everybody to work for most of the time? What is work for, and what else could we be doing in the future, were we no longer cornered into spending most of our time working? [ch.one] #Quote by David Frayne
Futurism quotes by Frank Daniels III
#25. Though often scoffed at by "serious" writers, science fiction worms its way into our cultural psyche in interesting ways, and not just as predictors of technology. Many of these writers translate the –isms of our times into imagined futures populated with characters coping with the consequences. #Quote by Frank Daniels III
Futurism quotes by William Gibson
#26. The Thirties had seen the first generation of American industrial designers; until the Thirties, all pencil sharpeners looked like pencil sharpeners - your basic Victorian mechanism, perhaps with a curlicue of decorative trim. After the advent of the designers, some pencil sharpeners looked as though they'd been put together in wind tunnels. For the most part, the change was only skin-deep; under the streamlined chrome shell, you'd find the same Victorian mechanism. Which made a certain kind of sense, because the most successful American designers had been recruited from the ranks of Broadway theater designers. It was all a stage set, a series of elaborate props for playing at living in the future. #Quote by William Gibson
Futurism quotes by Owen Jones Classics
#27. after having, for instance, reproduced in a picture the right shoulder or the right ear of a figure, we deem it totally vain and useless to reproduce the left shoulder or the left ear. We do not draw sounds, but their vibrating invervals. We do not paint diseases, but their symtoms and their consequences. #Quote by Owen Jones Classics
Futurism quotes by James Hillman
#28. Ecology movements, futurism, feminism, urbanism, protest and disarmament, personal individuation cannot alone save the world from the catastrophe inherent in our very idea of the world. They require a cosmological vision that saves the phenomenon 'world' itself, a move in soul that goes beyond measures of expediency to the archetypal source of our world's continuing peril: the fateful neglect, the repression, of the anima mundi. #Quote by James Hillman
Futurism quotes by Lav Bamaniya
#29. DREAMS are not only which you experienced in that sweet night behind the darkness,Dreams are your own,admire,wishing for your future sun rays.... :) :) #Quote by Lav Bamaniya
Futurism quotes by David Frayne
#30. To any who would suggest that there is no alternative to the work-centred society, I submit that it is a profoundly sad society that cannot envisage a future where a sense of social solidarity and purpose are achieved through anything other than commodity relations. [ch.eight] #Quote by David Frayne
Futurism quotes by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti
#31. It is from Italy that we are flinging this to the world, our manifesto of burning and overwhelming violence, with which we today establish " Futurism ," for we intend to free this nation from its fetid cancer of professors, archaeologists, tour guides, and antiquarians. #Quote by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti
Futurism quotes by Rachel Kushner
#32. Futurism eventually got marred by its link to Fascism, but early on, it was totally avant-garde, and I wanted to dream a phantom link from the early futurists to the politically radical Italy of the 1970s, a time of fun, play, subversion - if also violence and mayhem. #Quote by Rachel Kushner
Futurism quotes by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti
#33. Our poetry is courage, audacity and revolt. #Quote by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti
Futurism quotes by Jay Kristoff
#34. With a far-future setting merging Chinese and American culture, 'Firefly' also saw high-tech futurism blended with the traditional Wild West. #Quote by Jay Kristoff
Futurism quotes by Oliver Markus Malloy
#35. When historians in the future ask a really old version of me about this pandemic, I'm gonna tell them that Trump's MAGA minions were the only ones who had no idea what was happening, while the rest of America stared into the abyss. #Quote by Oliver Markus Malloy
Futurism quotes by Justin K. McFarlane Beau
#36. Corruption ultimately guilts the corrupt, and it hardens the innocent who suffer as a result of it. It isn't the young who corrupt the old, rather it's the inverse.
The aim of the old should be to ensure that the young grow up incorruptible. #Quote by Justin K. McFarlane Beau
