I read this article in the Virgin Australia flight magazine back in November 2015 and was blown away by the vision of the future it laid out. Two years later, as the trajectory of the world seems more confusing and dispiriting than ever, I've found myself thinking back to it. It's hopeful, creative, and describes a world - not without its challenges - but that I would be excited to live in. Of course it's a fantasy piece. But daring to imagine wildly, to boldly re-think our relationship to technology, community, and the natural world seems like a productive antidote to what so many of us recognise as regressive politics.
