Utopian visions are more marketable than dystopian facts. The observed probability drift from projected futures to actual reality is surely always something of a wishing well in a context of relentless and recursively hyper-inflating technological (and associated geo-political) metamorphosis. An interesting question might be to address the extent to which the cultivation of utopian narratives may reflexively affect (or inflect) the branching paths of all plausible or probable possible futures; that is, agnostic of technological artifacts, corporate modalities or (intractable) biological imperatives.

As the frequency of technological change accelerates, the amplitude and range of uncertainty is concurrently amplified.
