Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on futurism Paper must be at least 1500 words. Please, no plagiarized work! The futurist movement had an obsession and intense admiration for youth, speed, industrial advancements, technology, scientific progression, airplanes, and cars amongst other elements that displayed humanity’s triumph over general nature.
In a scientific context, futurism refers to a social group of scientists or scientists specializing in futurology, which is the attempt to research and explore possibilities and predictions of the future in addition to how they can transition from the current time, and their effects on human existence. Futurism has different means of manifesting itself depending on various aspects, a nature that gives rise to it having sub-branches. This essay will highlight, discuss, and evaluate two branches of futurism, that is Afrofuturism and indigenous futurism while laying much emphasis on their application in science fiction.
Afrofuturism is a cultural and literal aesthetic that puts together aspects of magic realism, science fiction, Afrocentricity, fantasy, and historical fiction with cosmologies that are non-western and use these to criticize dilemmas faced by non-white people living in Diaspora environments where the perception of black people in science and science fiction is negative or absent. These critiques focus on both current and historical occurrences that face “people of color” in the Diaspora then address the arising matters via a science fiction and/or a techno culture perspective.
On its part, Indigenous Futurism is the initial scientific practice of making connections and perceiving life’s patterns across wide sections of time and base without basing its perceptions only on western/European science, otherwise called “Whiteman’s science”. These two forms of futurism are similar in that both address the discrimination of blacks in expounding or exercising future perceptions and ideologies.
