The HeyerScope:

exploring across time and space to how information shapes and governs our lives and enables life in the universe.

The HeyerScope delivers take-home snapshots and in-depth articles in five motifs:

The Universe - Our Cosmological Cradle

  • How the universe made us

The Life of Information

  • How the laws of information create life, from the very first living organism to you and me.

The Human Experiment

  • Mastery of information is our unique talent - Who we are, how did we get here, and where are we going?

Living Machines

  • Are we ready to become one with our machines?

Letters from the future

  • How can we set a course to create the future we desire?

As an applied futurist, the journey of my life is about seeing who we are, where we came from, where we are going, and how to build our future. My scope of interests includes science, art, philosophy and engineering.

The HeyerScope postings may be collections of short observations or longer dissertations.

You are invited to join in the comments and suggest topics of interest. Guest authors are also welcome to contribute.

It’s alive! It’s alive!

I think about time and space, from chaos to evolution. I see the unity of all life forms with each other and with the cosmos. Thoughts on where we are going - technology, humanity, and the arc of life on our planet.
