So this is for my day job; I’m consulting on an art research LARP as part of an umbrella project called Climate-Just Worldings. I’m not the main PM, I’m just helping out. This particular material [the list of Other-Timely Intrusions] is among the things that is going to be open source; (to be specific, we’re considering the most recent version of the CC-BY, the CC-BY-SA, or the CC0.) If you post your suggestions here, please be OK with me using them in that way. Since this is research, we need to be especially cautious that people are aware of the time we ask of them, and how that they’re participating voluntarily etc. All stuff that’s no different than many of the other posts here, like the great research for a children’s game thread that’s up here.
The premise of [our current draft of] the LARP is that there’s this time machine that can only send information back, not physical objects, and they can only send them as back as a specific date (within the last year or so, I think was the date we set). The agenda of the entities in the very distant future is to fight climate change. They go about it in kind of a weird way; here are some examples that we already have:
It’s all oddly personal & micro-level.
The participants of the LARP are gonna try to figure out how the OTI could even happen [obv there are present-day people helping to execute some of these ideas and implement some of this technologies since the time machine only could, at least at first, send pure data and it’d have to pass through the code/data separation layer somehow; for example a gene sequence or a piece of computer software that needs to actually be executed] and how to react to these intrusions. Maybe we’re gonna do hidden roles/agendas too, IDK.
So the Q is:
we want moar!
What are some more of these? Again, please don’t worry about how they would make sense, just what are some more of the small weird OTI things that these climate-agenda-having future entities do?
