ABout thE SCIENTIST

Chiara Marletto is a physicist at Oxford University, and author of the book “The Science of Can and Can’t”, where she writes about the concept of counterfactuals and constructor theory. This is a new and different approach to physics where the idea is that the physics most of us are familiar with is mirrored in a way that is very limited. There is a large class of things that science has neglected, and according to this theory, there are questions of what is and isn’t possible, which could provide scientific explanations to many questions in the long run. Those unwilling to bring this concept to science prevent us from making progress on certain fundamental problems. In her Existential Hope podcast she speaks about how humans can think in ways that allow endless creativity. This is what creates resilience for humanity and its survival. If we could achieve a state in which all people are able to think freely and not need to worry about day-to-day problems that have to do with survival, like being hungry or trying to pay rent, we could achieve an ideal situation (similar to what Plato had): Time to think freely, to be creative, and to consider various problems. Scientists try to create this in their lives, time and space where they can just think about problems freely and in peace. But it's currently too narrowly present in humanity.

Explore current Exhibits

This gallery exhibits artworks that fund researchers and organizations working on improving the long-term future.

Hope Drop: Visionary scientists discuss how their work advances humanity toward flourishing futures. We generate an art piece and story prompt to visualize it. Listen to the podcast, explore the art, or contribute a story!

DeSci Drop: Early-stage science faces two problems: 1. It’s hard to communicate. 2. Funding relies on complicated legacy institutions that take a big cut. In this exhibit, a scientist and an artist co-create an art work and split the proceeds. Become a direct patron of a brilliant scientist!
