This week's subject line is the 7th track on André 3000's new album. I googled the phrase and found this funny musing on the notion on physicsforum.com. 😅
As I saw the record gain attention over the past week, I knew I'd want to mention it here but wasn't sure what article. I love my friend Jools' take that:
"New Blue Sun reminds us that personal growth and not bowing to pressure to stay exactly the same is fine"

"Our perceptions and predictions for the future have long been coupled with default mindsets we rarely seek to question. But what if instead we were to consider the future from the perspective of cautious criticality, rather than a default mindset of optimism/progress, and over the course of an entire epoch, rather than neatly bookended into the next calendar year? The following propositions are not intended to be purely pessimistic or dystopian, but instead to act as departure points either away from something old or towards something new.
The MIRED World in The Anthropocene is an exploration into such alternative perspectives. It is an obvious parody of The WIRED World In X published annually by WIRED magazine, employing the same tropes and modes of future forecasting. But here with an added dose of the realities of the shared predicaments we face framed within the epoch we collectively live in."
