What limits would you like to see humanity overcome?


Human beings are remarkably limited creatures. We can only handle a small range of physical environments. We die if we are too hot, too cold, get too little oxygen or too much carbon monoxide. We can’t see X-rays or radio waves or even infrared or ultraviolet. We can’t hear dog whistles or most geological rumbles. Heck we can’t even detect magnetic energy. We can’t fly like a bird. We can’t run as fast as most cats or dogs. We can’t go underwater very far at all. But for almost all of these physical limitations we have found a way around them with our ingenuity and creativity. On the 2nd of November we hosted our 2013 conference with the title UNLIMITED and left the day with a sense of positive bewilderment, but also with one of urgency. Our speakers gave a glimpse into the possibilities that lie ahead, but also stressed the adversity of the present. Besides a line-up of remarkable speakers from all over the world, we had the chance of interacting in a creative milieu. Among other interactive experiences, we created a web of limits, asking the attendees a simple, yet personal question: “What limits would you like to see humanity overcome?”. Here is a glimpse of the answers you gave:

The world is ours to shape and removing limitations is not only necessary, but also a character builder. So whatever they might be, go out there and confront them. Because for evolving, the human race will always need new challenges, new limits to overcome.
