Futuristics: Methodologies & Books

Over the years I have developed several social science methodologies to forecast the future. Cultural and Film Futuristics and Way Ahead Medicine Stories for more personal growth and transformation.

Cultural Futuristics

By reuniting opposing hostile and previously separated constellations separation is transformed into unity. This is how future histories are constructed. Future histories is my name for scenarios, the final outcome of any Future Studies research.

My Mission

Cultural Futuristics Integrates social-science methods, psychoanalytical techniques, alchemical procedures, indigenous wisdom, and a research attitude akin to the Western Apache concept of smooth mind together. 

Cultural Futuristics probes collective, cultural complexes in an effort to gain insight and, thus, foresight. 

Researchers can use this method to reconnect superficial social, political, and cultural facades with unconscious depths, revealing what has been disguised, abandoned and exiled, marginalized, and hidden from modernism’s surface glance. 

Informed by the wisdom within the unconscious-constellated opposites, shadows, and archetypal movements of cultural events, cultural futuristics attempts to mitigate and avert future catastrophes by bringing consciousness to cultural complexes and soul to scenario planning.

The most detailed explanation of the process may be found in the original disseratation:

Cultural futuristics: Bringing consciousness to cultural complexes and soul to scenario based planning by Glock, Michael, Ph.D., Pacifica Graduate Institute, 2008, 308; 3406155

Cultural futuristics & Film Futuristics is constructed in fundamental stages similar to the principal stages of alchemy.

SEPARATION & ANALYSIS ON THE ONE HAND SYNTHESIS &  CONSOLIDATION ON THE OTHER

Film Futuristics

By reuniting opposing hostile and previously separated constellations separation is transformed into unity. This is how future histories are constructed. Future histories is my name for scenarios, the final outcome of any Future Studies research.

In Future Studies

In Future Studies

The purpose of futures studies, or futuristics, is to discover or invent, examine and evaluate, and propose possible, probable, and preferable futures. 

  • Grasp today’s landscape
    Research, watch films, engage & live
  • How does it change
    (or doesn’t)?
  • What does tomorrow look like?
    The end product of every futures methodology is the scenario

Film Futuristics is a tool that can be used by researchers, writers and creatives to write scenarios informed by Depth Psychology. Here are some more details….

The Process:

In Phase 1: Research begins with a steady, resilient and steadfast mind, anchored in place like earth packed around a post. 

In Phase 2: The researcher Digests the research and separates the component parts. The they conduct an analysis on one hand, synthesis & consolidatation on the other. 

The third step Phase 3: Is to write three scenarios—future histories. Scenario A is the possible future, Scenario B is the probable future, Scenario C  is preferable.

Way Ahead  fuses the Jungian project, Western Apache philosophy, journaling, and Descartes’ Scientific Method together in order to leave your own “dark ages”  and reach personal renaissance.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here
