Future by Design shares the life and far-reaching vision of Jacque Fresco, considered by many to be a modern day Da Vinci. Peer to Einstein and Buckminster Fuller, Jacque is a self-taught futurist who describes himself most often as a "generalist" or multi-disciplinarian -- a student of many inter-related fields. He is a prolific inventor, having spent his entire life (he is now 90 years old) conceiving of and devising inventions on various scales which entail the use of innovative technology. As a futurist, Jacque is not only a conceptualist and a theoretician, but he is also an engineer and a designer. Written by
I don't understand why this extraordinary film has not received much attention it deserves. It came out just in time - in a time of great chaos around the globe where humans as a species are getting ready (hopefully) to embark on becoming "civilized" or to self exterminate.
Jacque Fresco is certainly one of the very few true geniuses in human history who came to help elevate the primordial human consciousness. Unfortunately, he's about at least 50 years ahead of our time. This world is just starting to grasp some of his revolutionary visions from the latter part of the last century of the last millennium.
This film is nicely illustrated, well done. High quality professional CGIs certainly added that magic touch. I was glue to my TV screen mesmerized, hungrily took in every word that so eloquently came out of Jacque's mouth - it was heavenly music to my ears. All my life, I have had all these scattered bits of similar ideas, concept, and visions that I was unable to organize, let alone materialize.
Anyone who happened upon this, please go buy the DVD and watch it - you owe it to yourself that much and it will, with no doubt, change your life in more ways than you are conscious of.
