Illuminating the Path to Uncertain Possibilities:
Looking into the space of possibilities with the futures-telescope

I was always fascinated by the sunlight. It influences how we perceive the world around us. We literally need it to live.
Without light, we do not see as clearly as with bright sunshine, sometimes it is pitch black, which makes us uncomfortable and lost. Even our emotional well-being is connected to how much sunlight we receive. When the light is not refracted, natural light is yellow. When you use a prism to refract it, you get a rainbow. It makes the sky blue and some evenings red. It has invisible parts that make you feel warm, or change your skin tone. And its superpower — it is particle and wave at the same time.
