chronofall

Now that the chronofall is over, I’ll be taking a little break from social media for a while. Listening to all of these voicemails from the future has made me reevaluate some things. I don’t know what the future will bring, but I’ve got a pretty good present and I’m going to enjoy it while I can.

The chronofall is happening soon. Very soon. What in the world is that? Well, this thing here is a chronofact. It’s a physical representation of a voicemail. I know, it sounds crazy, but we can decode these things and get voicemails out of them.

During a chronofall, the chronofacts just sort of…appear. We’re not exactly sure how or why these things are turning up. They just are. And they’re all over the place. So if you see one, let me know. You can contact me here or send me an email at alex@futurecoast.org.

Oh, one more thing. Did I mention these voicemails are from the future? The FUTURE! Or from some future, anyway. Apparently, there isn’t just one. Still trying to wrap my head around that one.

omg omg omg omg

The fourth chronofall ended in late April, but Sam still bears witness to the power of listening to voicemails leaked from our futures

FutureCoast has an #artdropday challenge for people in the San Francisco Bay Area: a chronofact has fallen in the South Bay near the Calaveras Fault Trail east of San Jose. Go find your very own artifact from the future! Report your find at futurecoast.org.

Text reads: “South San Francisco Bay, California USA. Clue: ‘Furtado.’ GPS Coordinates: N 37deg 24’ 24.8” E -121deg 46’ 46.8"

I can't believe the chronofall is almost OVER!

that makes me sad!

I knew from the start that this major world-wide chronofall would only last a few months, but I just didn’t think that these few months wold fly by SO FAST! 

It’s hard for me to look back on these past months and try to think of how to sum up everything I experienced during this major chronofall.

My mind is spinning! I have to start sorting through all the voicemails that are floating around in my brain. All the voicemails that struck a chord with me one way or another, and what it all means! What does this all mean for my future? Also what does this mean for my life  RIGHT NOW?

In what way(s) has futurecoast changed me? SO MANY. I’m overwhelmed! I need some sort of “inner brain personal assistant” to move into my head and sort through all the information and help me make sense of it all! 

How has futurecoast affected you?

Listen to your futures

I’ve been drawn to voicemails from the near future (within 10-20 years from today) and I found a pattern with 6 voicemails that are all from within the next 15 years. In these 6 voicemails, it seems that the climate is either really hot, really dry or both. It makes me wonder about the near future…Within the next 15 years we could experience some very hot/very dry days…

I don’t know if I would rather have really hot weather or really cold weather…I’d rather have a lovely 70 degree day. The dryness is the thing that worries me the most…lack of water is terrifying. what do you think?

Chronofall!

It’s finally happening. It’s chronofall time!

A chronofact was found today in Washington D.C. by @RticulatedPython. Finding them can be tricky business, so I’m so relieved that it was found! Chronofacts have a habit of tucking themselves away into their own little hiding places.

There are still chronofacts out there, waiting to be found. One fell in Los Angeles on the 6th and another in Oakland, CA on the 8th. San Francisco fell today. If you live in any of these cities, please take a look! (More details on the exact locations here.)

Hello! Its been a while! Both of these selfies were taken yesterday! The day of the Super Bowl! ………

…..Despite the excitement I have all over my face (partly due to new glasses I just got in the mail and the ridiculous flower crown and overalls I bought myself last week) I don’t care about the Super Bowl! I don’t care at all! 

BUT GUESS WHAT? IT’S FEBRUARY!! Guess what that means? The next chronofall is going to happen THIS MONTH! SO SOON! I cannot wait! 

I need to try to get the word out once again for people to starting looking for these chronofacts! We need to collect these voicemails people! OH the DATA!!

So I tracked down my old friend Brendan (who I haven’t seen in FOREVER since we had a sort of kind of falling out…awkward…) who lives in Portage, WI. I heard that there was going to be a mini-chronofall there and I needed someone to film my search in the area just in case something turned up. 

We used to be BEST friends but it turned out he wanted us to be more than that…I just didn’t think of him that way and that made him upset…I was so so glad that he agreed to meet with me anyways. It was nice to see him. 

Unfortunately the search didn’t quite work out as well as I thought it would, but I did hang up these posters that I made:

I haven’t heard anything yet but I’m hoping someone sees this and contacts us with some information. 

Now all that’s left to do is sit and wait for the next chronofall “tip”. I’m so anxious! If anyone out there has any information please please pLEASE let me know! 

Monkeys and Moral Quandaries

I took this picture at the zoo a couple of years ago. Every time I look at it, I can’t help but think that the monkey on the left looks guilty, like he thinks he doesn’t deserve that nice grooming from his friend.

A while back, I wrote about how I felt a bit guilty using the information we get from the chronofacts for personal use. I mean, we’re basically eavesdropping on people from the future when we listen to these voicemails. Through the chronofacts, we’re somehow now privy to secret knowledge that should have belonged only to the people of the future.

But maybe it doesn’t belong to just them. As the chronofall is nearing its end date, I’m realizing that feeling guilty about any of this doesn’t really help anyone. I don’t know why we’re getting this information. Is it just a random glitch in the technology used in the future? Or is someone intentionally sending the voicemails back in time for us to hear? We really don’t know and I don’t know if we ever will.

If we can use this information to not only better the world, but to better our own lives, why not do it? I’ve decided (for myself anyway) there’s really no reason to feel guilty over receiving something so completely amazing.

If I could, I’d send my own little monkey chronofact back to the zoo on the day I took this picture. I’d tell the little guy, “Just lean back, close your eyes and enjoy that grooming, little monkey. Stop worrying so darn much.”
