The Humble Futurist

Welcome to The Humbe Futurist Blog. I hope you find my ideas interesting. Participation is encouraged!

My background is in technology and psychology. My approach and perspective is often routed in these two disciplines. My recent academic interests include Astronomy, Cosmology, and programming. I think about the future of human-kind and the universe frequently. The two are really one in the same. Carl Sagan said, “We are the universe trying to understand itself“.


Carl Sagan is one of my heroes.

As human beings, we are undergoing a revolution in consciousness. New scientific discoveries tell us more about ourselves and the universe every day. The approach to an extremely positive “tipping point” has begun.

    Carl Sagan is a GOD!
    “Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives… on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”

    You have a very beautiful blog here. I really enjoyed reading all of the posts and am now looking forward for more. Specially about the Femto-Photography because that’s a really exciting breakthrough. What’s more, articles are well-written, they’re concise and enjoyable to read unlike others that are heavy text based.

    These are ideas of yours are really fascinating. I’ve read a lot of Carl Sagan’s works and I can tell how much influence he’s been to you since you really have interest in similar subjects.

    We are heading towards what we think is perfection in everything we do. We attribute that to efficiency and speed which is really troubling us like the fastest stars in space. We want to dominate like the black holes and we are increasing in number as if we have human clusters. The harmonic nature of the universe might destroy us one day since it – the universe – keeps on changing.

      Sometimes I think that Technology is a hinderance, albeit best referred to general society as some form of evolution. We see all these devices and survey their rise as interesting universes when we are not yet sure how our own flesh and bone vehicle operates. I think that only then can we find a solution to most of the issues that we face. Being that they are all external metaphors for the conflict that goes unpronounced within ourselves.

    I really like this blog as well. I used to watch Cosmos by Neil De Tyson and he mentioned how he met Carl Sagan. People should read Carl’s books if they are not familiar with him.

      Clark Chapman, who studied under Sagan has some fine reads as well. He keeps Sagan’s legacy breathing if you ask me. I think that this blog is a clear indication that the thoughts of some unique thinkers are still very much alive.

    The philosophical approach of existence or life considering understanding itself is a concept that will evolve human understanding as well as fits the blog. Discoveries and capabilities of mankind will not cease as we continue to progress into the technological age. This blog is serving a purpose of informing people of the world’s advances and encouraging progression. Thank You!

      It is crucial that science is sound and active in the mind’s of the masses. propelled questions arranging for broadness of vision can help even if there is no definite answer. i think that we must realize that most of science consists of theory and at moment can be proven wrong through procedures that suggest an alternative outcome. What is important is the quest for knowledge more so than the knowledge. Maybe it is not if what we are thinking is right, so much as if we are rightly applying thought to whatever it is that we are thinking about.

    This is, actually, a very good blog. I’ve seen quite a few in my internet surfing days, and this one has to be in my top 5 at this point. Very out-of-the-box thinking here, and I really like that. It’s a refreshing change away from the norm.

    He was both a visionary and a submitted shield of discerning logical consideration. I can tell that while creating the theme of this site that your deep rooted mission is to comprehend the universe, particularly our planetary framework, and to convey the rush of logical disclosure to others. Bravo, my good friend. You are succeeding is what some of us can only categorize as a labor of love.

    I love this blog, and it seems we have a common inspiration. Carl Sagan’s books sparked my initial interest in astronomy and science. Recently I did manage to get the original Cosmos series on DVD, (while wondering if I was the only person to read the book first!) and found it absolutely eye-opening. For its time, the effects are spectacular but it’s definitely designed to be watched, not just background viewing, because there’s so much detail and information packed in.

    If you like Sagan’s work, there is a classic interview from 1988 on Youtube uploaded by The Science Foundation: Arthur C Clarke, Stephen Hawking and Carl Sagan, debating physics, ethics and unified field.
    It is one of my favourites, not just for how far we’ve come, but for how far we haven’t and the questions that they were asking then that we are still working on now. No matter how much the world changes, human nature and curiosity stays the same.

    I am a relatively new user to the blog, but I really like it. It’s rare to see a blog discussing smart topics and putting an eye on the future, so it’s a pleasure to be a part of this community and to contribute with my views to the debates.

    I am so glad that I stumbled upon this, my friend, and thank you for sharing all of this with us. That is an interesting background to have, technology and psychology, and I have seen how it makes for some interesting topics of discussion and theories and philosophies. I really enjoy reading them and thinking hard about them. and I appreciate the mental workout. Thank you so much, and you got me hooked.
