You can't kill our myths, without replacing them.

Modern thinkers are quick to try and extinguish the myths of our pasts, but often do so without replacing these stories with new ones for us to believe in. Today’s science fiction, media and literature leans far more dystopian than utopian. Far more Orwellian than Platonic. Far more fearful about the horror humans may inevitably create than excited about what our collective human ingenuity will inevitably engineer. If your goal is to get us to separate ourselves from archaic and antiquated stories, you must give us a new one to enter. One that gets us excited for what’s to come. A vision for a heaven we can all start building together.
