Extreme Futurist Festival to be Held on 12/21/2012

Rachel Haywire, contributor to the Disinformation anthology Generation Hex, and author of the cyber travel memoir Acidexia, is working on the second annual Extreme Futurist Festival which she has decided to hold on the Mayan apocalypse calendar date of December 21, 2012.

This is how she describes the event:

“Extreme Futurist Festival is a 2 day arts and technology festival focusing on radical voices of the new evolution. Last year we had a great event and were called “a TED conference for the counterculture” by the LA Weekly. This year we seek to make XFF an even more epic experience.

Terence McKenna predicted that December 21, 2012 would mark a great evolutionary shift in consciousness. It is now up to us to become that shift. We want to make this the 2012 event that people will talk about for years to come.

We will be focusing on cutting edge science and technology along with transgressive performance art and music. Showcasing the most innovative and subversive memetics of our time, we see to highlight an extreme future that breaks the formula of modern culture.

The future has been commodified by the mainstream in an effort to make revolutionary technologies easy to digest. As a result we are now living in an era of complacency, in which the true leaders and game changers are made to feel like outsiders.

It is time to rise against the dominant current of our society and declare that nothing is too extreme. We refuse to be assimilated into a carbon copied version of a new humanity. As evolutionary agents we will push the boundaries of what it means to transform our species.

Please join us in our quest to push the button for a new era of humankind.”

    I’d love to go to this, but I’ve already got plans to ascend to a higher plane of existence on that day,

      Exactly! I’ll be learning how to fly around in my new body made of Light, and rejoicing that I won’t need to feed, bathe, medicate or house it.

    Not very interesting comments.

    I’ll tell you this, I like her smile but I don’t think she’ll be smiling when the shit hits the fan, nobody will. Not even the people that think they welcome it.   There won’t be a “reset”, not a total one unless the earth is wiped out by outside forces, or inside for that matter.

    A different way of thinking?  LOLZER.  Lemme see, I hold all the power and control and I’m gonna give that up why?      Next…………..

       Yeah, not very interesting comments.

      Look, life has been a never-ending torrent of fan shitting. It’s always been awful, and without intelligence, it always will be. The only good things that have happened in evolutionary history (an anthropomorphic idea, obviously) were either rare accidents, or acts of intelligence. Smart can cause bad things, sure. But smart is the only way to systematically get good things.

        “smart” is great in creating new ideas good or bad. But -WISE- is knowing how to discern between the two.
