the part of the and if you if you want to be the gold
and do it object not to chime
and OK that's in a 2nd hi everyone thank you so much for coming out and this is my 2nd
year the public up and I'm always very excited to see an almost full for science fiction which 10 years ago would never have happened Armenians Eden albedo mean filtering just 2 weeks and when I started reading science fiction it was on each occupation it was something that was not to be you know not to exaggerate too much I wasn't clear the queue for but people give me with looks alm it was always popular to leave 1 or 2 books you know the gates unil style or stuff like that but actually delving in on something that when I was going up on especially well forming is low was kind of an oddity in today's your here and I get this amazing stage to talk about some of my greatest passions and for that I can't thank you enough because it would have happened without you guys so the title of my talk is the ocean of
dreams and subtitle is what history science fiction and the oceans can teach us about states so that subtitles tell about because sometimes you anything
and we need to unpack and some details of here unlike last year when I promise not to do the theoretical stuff and I did feel because before it was set of my talk I will actually not to theoretical stuff this time and we'll just spend 5 minutes defining history science fiction and the
ocean and you can get right to it so the biggest 1 what is the history it seems like a ridiculous question like everybody knows what history is that when we try and look at it with a professionally or personally we discovered history is much more complicated than what is taught to us in high school it's not just what the call for people that they have done or what countries did to maximize the power it's also basically everything I do I'm from the trade wine to how animals migrate from country to country to how wall effects migrants to basically everything that ever existed before history before but it's in language was inventor why history today why my opening stop with history just make something clear I am very much a
skeptic about little in the past and the future of I don't think that's true I don't think that's possible but we can take from history models ideas that people have already implemented how the failed policy succeeded and why they did evil can trying to take these models and not repeat the mistakes and try to duplicate the successes science fiction what is science fiction so it's made up of 2 world science fiction but this film is deprecated it shouldn't even be used anymore the portal to another is is speculative fiction because science while still very much a part of science fiction is kind of taking a back seat today as we move
forward fall into this strange times that we find ourselves in I would hope that most people it's if you have already been the solution from the promise that science will save us science like everything else that we create is to work and it is up to us to use so then waves and without those past fall there will be no good to of science as will fiction comes in fiction is the science of imagining other ways in which reality could be whether it is the past the present or the future is asking the question and answering it at the same time how could my life be different How could the lives of of of the different how do humans live in ways which I cannot even imagine put together a science all speculative fiction is the science of thinking of new ways in which the future work will be how would be different from what we know how would manifest changes in our lives and the last 1 is the ocean the ocean is supposedly the simplest of these terms but it is also quite complicated on 1 hand it's a geographical concept it's a body of water so big enough to be classified as an ocean but it's so much more than that it is a space for colonialism is a space for exploitation it is a space for war it is also space for discovery and great wealth and unimaginable accomplishments that now these beg you might just think about that Portuguese or jomon all Dutch of Spanish or English or Chinese or Japanese standing in front of this massive expanse of water and imagining the other side it's almost no wonder that the 1st iterations of science fiction you what came to India discovers but as they were thinking about how life could be different on the other side of the ocean they will in fact practicing science-fiction so 1 of those of the most blatant examples of that is this engraving accepted from the 19th century it appears in the book and
buy and sell and butchering the French you collect them yet flannel he was in a storm of his wife of also ensemble by the way w elephant and they together looked at Jupiter and Mars and of all in our our solar system and this engaging encapsulates how they thought that science and medieval thought I saw the world so you have that personnel in the bottom left corner and he is exiting the seal of the known into the unknown no this is terribly and atomistic and looking at medieval times like this would be a mistake but captures that sense of wonder about that has always been infiltrated the human thoughts when thinking about the ocean about exploitation obviously this is a very naive weights see at out effect which I will not play common show you how it's not my Alex probation is never just the thrill of the new the fully love of the novel but in attempts to define ourselves to define the of will and to basically on all of the world around us so what I will be doing is examining the models from history and how the of what we might be seeing in the future when we come to explore space before we
dive in last theoretical statement space is the notion it's not a question of if we will go to space it is a question of when is inevitable it is inevitable because really humans and that Belgian us to pioneer that Belgian us to jump into the ocean is far too strong to resist it is inevitable because this of is no longer enough even if you look at the most basic of facts which is the goal of population time is running out even if we find some scientific way to it and ample long fossil fuel all that of stuff was was simply we keep going OK so keep that in mind if these things happen it's when they happen and how they work saw 1st model this portrait on the left what the 1st nations to out only explore the new world which obviously
wasn't you it was new to them and In this case law talking about the new world order but Africa this is a map from the 15th century look how much space that fault takes at the bottom of not status of the work place in the novel to make maps it's that maps will a communicator device it's not just how to get to some words what that this is and the fact that this fall takes up so much space should tell you how important it is how it quotient was to the perception of of the world the world for these kind of settlements was fatally which is like a combination of folders and factory and trading and what they did do with these supporters it is a very old click they found the bottleneck and they closed it they said if you want to go to the ocean you have to go for us as the oldest trick in the book humans have been doing that since 6 thousand BC it's called the bullet tyranny I sit on the top of the the use of the bottom and I tell me if you want water if you want to live you must swear fealty to me and I will give you the results in Portugal's case the resource was plate access to the ocean why is this relevant how this links to space like no the there's a pulsar also won't name because he's not a public person who really wants the US to declare all the Moon landings sites as a heritage site but the problem is that in the UN Charter a country must only a place must declare ownership in order to make it a heritage site and no 1 wants the US to declare ownership of that site the simple reason is is if they only it they can develop it if it if they can develop it they can build their own version of the Portuguese focused on the meaning that sound like science fiction will yeah that's the talk but it's also something that is very very easy to accomplish it's not that hard for 1 of the greatest nations in the world like devoted the building of few times they have the resources why is there a problem even in the times of the cold wall well speculation was going about what the Soviet Union was attempting the idea of a moon base is the ultimate modeling if I said in the morning and I
have missiles so you don't get to go to space unless you pay me in field theory in prestige in money I basically hold the entire world is my bottleneck the moon is at some point especially for have missiles is in the range of the entire globe so no 1 wants the US to be the 1st known want anyone to be the 1st and even if there is an international initiative of course some countries that ongoing international community will be excluded so you can see the source line how history lines by the same feel of Portuguese Powell killing a bottleneck is the same field of US or international Paul Keating up space bottleneck yeah on next model comes to us from England by way of solid these pictures of fixated it's really hard to get same height as good as other media organizations that don't exist anymore like I these 2 there the East India Trading company is a company that was founded by 60 or so of the english middle class in the 17th century to handle played for the British Empire in the way the East Indies in India eventually why did the Government give them a chance of the given a big monopoly of trade because then the government outsourced outsources this thing that outsourcing is an invention it's not it outsources the list to the private sector a should goes down no 1 tries to parliament they go to the bold for this company and they complained and have bosses private interest and they can kind of watched way if the queen says no modern that mother belongs to the queen the risks losing authority Parliament lists be replaced so the government also civilians for share of the profits and the company takes all the lists and gets a shell profit otherwise they would never have been able to access who is 2 days East India Trading Company you know months space X NASA has outsourced its path to space to the private sector national longer lunches shuttles you must will own and operate US the world's largest economy their path to space will be handled by the private sector and all that we can see the same model as the East India Trading company you must have an accident a few months a few years ago I when I NASA's shuttle explodes people say shut down answer all impeach the president how not see this terrible disaster coming up with a long masks shuttle explodes his stocks go down he has to do a press conference he has to handle it the government outsourced to the risk of space travel to the private sector again this kind of finding final tell whether you're masks lives of the prophesy of exploitation and violence that see trading company had as
its history I hope not but you never know my last model everybody's favorite people the Vikings the Vikings had a very interesting model unlike what he will tell you the Vikings had a mixed model on 1 hand each captain for captains achieved and
was in charge of their own vessels they bought the arm off although talks they bought the vessel itself and the that all that because the can out of space in their own area by the was a global of our cooling land in Denmark in that area got specimens of doesn't small chieftains had to be evicted but they didn't always work alone when there was great plunder all great enemy guarding that bundle they knew how to band together into fleets and also its will on operated on the simple mechanism of shelled posset but we pool our resources each 1 of these individual captains fall the promise of greater gain and we split the muscle cells and out told spilled among themselves now this is the only model that is not even in the future this has already happened space already been explored using the viking model just not in the life it indeed what you see here and this is where I get my notes are because all sorts of our technical terms with that of my notes OK notes and this is the blood bath of the 5 of 5 B which is the largest space battle to have ever taken place in a game called Eve Online what you see here is the result of a mistake the station in a hotly contested territory and at least a few months you need to pay a tax to keep that station so also got they came there was a bug in the gain of the CDC before that and that station went to the public domain immediately the 2 largest blocs in the game and I'm not making these names up 1 of them is the cluster fuck alliance and all the which is the alliance that like and mega lines and the other 1 is an free and all sorts of novel coalitions descended on the system with all of those fruits the battle lasted 21 he'll time follows which will expanded in again so the syllables could I handled the amount of calculations to fill the odds something the 75 tightened class ships will distort these of these guys massive ships and every single ship you every single item you see on this map is blown it none of this is a i is this is all players in every single ship here is on the evil by a pool of individuals or individuals value world you will damages from this battle is 300 thousand dollars that will last in damages to ships you calculated by the fact that I can buy with dolls in-game currency you do an average of how much the chip costs you you go back and you get 300 thousand bottles and economists will ask whether this is a real money and they kind of look at the interview and said there is no such thing as real money every all money is the law on appeal to the same degree so this model of entrepreneurship of of collected gain full to offset collected loss has already taken place now are we doing that to just the people past mistakes this model is already happened that we don't repeat the previous 2 models thus the solution should the poets a quote from Carl Sagan's Contact an amazing book an amazing movie I urge you to read science fiction can offer last alternative models to models which he I assume you agree with me or not the best
case scenario what I like to do in the 5 plus minute that Mr. have left his gold the recommended models at the end of the week was slide in this illustration of me but forget that the call those contact info if any of you want to follow what's more books just e-mail me just will make those certain plenty mall and from where this came from so the 1st 2 books so the first one is to like the lightning by at upon was released last year for disclosure I hated this book until the last 50 pages but it's worth it energy describes a utopian dystopian society I won't spoil the ending because that's the whole point of the book and in which all of our problems have been solved but everything is still pretty much total because the 2 humans like on not and space has been delegated only to those but have passion for it FIL of exploring it account colonizing telephoning mask they don't do it for profit he do because each and every 1 of them has a dream of humanity in the start of the vote that holds society is called utopians so they talk about all the businessmen they talk about old eventually took up all the private sector and the bought and people who don't mind getting paid salaries in all to go to space by the way that that's also already had its collapse find people domain get getting paid capitalist goes this the 2nd book is much we'll go engine Harrison as basically being deconstructing science fiction for the past 40 years so in 1974 you or disempowered advice which basically at ended everything that we knew about space of all and in its space travel is not the great liberator it's not William humanity goes to become better it so humanity goes to middle every single meaningless although that we've had the 1 of Communist Anarchist capitalist social stability and everyone is going at Sadella devices not really a new model is just kind of warning signs I be killed for that if you don't change where you are going to space won't do it for you you only export your own problems to a wider and more grandiose Kansas I want and the Matisse mystical the other 2 books and silly justice which is almost on a cliche to recommend this pointed it 1 all sorts of awards and so justice and has 2 level books on after that William space or block which asks the question what if the female gender 0 became the main called the gender by binary so so defaulting to he we define beautiful to she fights but it also asks what will
space and the distances between us to to us what happens when I live a hundred light years away from the closest planet hold a cultural breakdown what will ideas on how will they Metamorph falls when we go space such long distances those as a very compelling story about AI and also a lot of stuff I really comment I can't do it justice on the stage and everybody who knows me knows that those no talk of mine complete without recommending also that when I and another command 1 book I'm gonna the command Heinisch cycle she's a series of books 10 from 1966 to 2002 this is just 1 example will devise an illusion of the 1st ones and the reason I chose also lock is up
on because I love homes mission also also because the Heinisch and bio is an empire based on knowledge how ideas in space because of those Blake of culture and ideas that I just spoke about those who were who will be those able to consistently put knowledge across spaces quite so if I'm a hundred light years away from you let's say and I say communism by the time this idea is you you hear capitalism but because your willingly misunderstanding it but because it has played so many hands so the empire that war is is the empire that is able to take communism for my mouth and accurately display to you and preserve human knowledge that's what the hydrogen powered us now is that what I think will happen space human history teaches us that public not then again there are
examples where the preservation of knowledge was what cave organizations power for example the Catholic church the Catholic Church's main point before we got the big in the 14th century was language was close solving a language at all of you could speak preserving the world out of communication nothing that it's not Flanders to cliques nothing that's sold to office empowering I've sold to such a period who would be in charge of maintaining that language and what sort of Powell where they have so now comes my career station I just had this commission on it's like it's gonna be but this is the important
part to this to summarize when you take this terrible thing in I the was my point why is it important that you actually go and read these books science fiction is not like science something that solves problems by itself by itself so it it's not that you read these books and suddenly you're become with radical wore heels
fall battlespace explainations but these books will give you ideas they would give you the tools to move on and maybe maybe when the time comes for your children's children and my children's children children to you occupied explore colonize tell form and shape new space file space planetary space non planters space we might just be able to dodge well to mistakes don't dodge the model I don't believe in Utopia or maybe we can th a better slightly better version of where we are like now and well we're going thank you so much for listening
and try to obtain thank you very much z and 0 Eden and can only be used and we have time for I think 1 or it's you questions we have like and the form it so many many once it was a question now is time and not they're over the other and sigh after if you wanna come to me and speak privately of the here I'm not going anywhere pieces that's all I wanted to ask you got of all those books especially of selecting at some people say that there is an allusion to be formed right now regarding science-fiction have you met with solar plants and what the task with the knowledge and just economy of knowledge that's a good question on sort punk is is a bit larger than science fiction thriller just experiments solar point is cyberpunk is something that we most of us probably have hurled William Gibson eighties women in latex hacking corporations and stuff like that so little punk says that those the level of the level that bypassing systems bypass Powell make their own solar power will make their own machines that of an offshoot from the maker movement and it has also science fiction what's the problem so punk is that it's too late corporations of already that they talk about the light of the pair by the type of augmentation that's almost nearly impossible with everything the polity on I can't augment this computer unifying the hot ticket take about at that make sure that I can't augmented so it was an idea that was important and very relevant 10 years ago and as much as I'd love to believe in the steady can the style I feel it's all punk would be very short lived maybe along on what I like about it in the context of states is that it works very well with the with the single aren't shorten an ownership model fights because fossil people venting their own spaceships making their own past so I think it might be relevant as an idea but I don't see it
becoming like a movement like some constant anyone else called so as I said I'll be over
you feel free to walk up to me that is so much of the
I don't know if you are if you

Abstract Humans have always been pioneers. Discovering, exploring and conquering new places and frontiers is an inherent part of the story we tell about ourselves. This narrative has fueled both personal aspirations and multi-national ones, often enlisting thousands of work-hours and billions of dollars in budget. Now, as we stand on the brink of exploring space (the elusive "final frontier") what can our past teach us about our future? How can history and science fiction work together to illustrate possible, believable and useful futures within the field of space exploration with the models of the pioneers who came before us as a template?
