Flip the Facts

by .  

Help get people into the mindset of exploring non-obvious futures



Big thinking. Mind stretching


"Any useful statement about the future should first seem ridiculous" - Jim Dator

Let's create some ridiculous statements

  1. Have participants choose a common object.
  2. Write down 100 facts about the object (things that are true about the object today)
  3. Consider 100 alternative facts (flip them to be the opposite of what they are today)
  4. Then look at each fact and ask WHY each new alternative fact could be true.
  5. Find signals of things happening today which could support the alternative facts
