"Science fiction offers more than escapism," writes author Eliot Peper in the Harvard Business Review. "By presenting plausible alternative realities, science fiction stories empower us to confront not just what we think but also how we think and why we think it. They reveal how fragile the status quo is, and how malleable the future can be." 

"Exploring fictional futures frees our thinking from false constraints," Peper continues. "It challenges us to wonder whether we’re even asking the right questions. It forces us to recognize that sometimes imagination is more important than analysis."

Apple, Google, and Microsoft, and Apple have brought in science fiction writers as consultants. For enterprises and organizations in Upstate New York, SMARTACUS offers Darwin’s Edge, our community-generated tale set in Saratoga during the Presidential Election of 2056.
