A MANUAL FOR FUTANTS
“Somehow, with all of this change, we
are going to have to learn how to change our minds a little more easily.”
John Petersen, The Arlington Institute
“There is a futant genetic caste wired
for the role of evolutionary agent: one who foresees and helps fabricate
Timothy Leary, Ph.D.
Are there humans who are genetically determined to be
indicators of the next dimension of evolving human consciousness? Yes.
We call them futants. This paper is intended to provide a name, sense of
identity, concept, vocabulary, context, and suggestion of societal role-contribution.
Futant is a term coined by Timothy Leary, Ph.D.,
former Harvard lecturer in psychology and the engine behind the peaceful
Jeffersonian revolution of the ‘60’s. Melding future and mutant,
it defines those 1.5-2% of the population at any given time who are genetically
“programmed” to be the evolutionary future scouts. (Exo-Psychology, later
editions renamed Info-Psychology, 1976 )
Futants are not idiot savants nor
are they usually raging rebels. To this time they have often, if not usually,
been misunderstood, sometimes considered insane, persecuted, and cast
out or even killed. It would be well that we finally recognize the
genetic role, proclivities and potential contribution of futants.
By recognizing their genetic role we will gain an evolutionary advantage
in the form of a window into the future. This is not to say that the vision
of the futant is always robust or balanced or even completely correct.
Because the futant role is hardly recognized and often denied or even rejected
and persecuted the futant often does not understand Hir status and the evolutionary
context into which it fits. This, more than often, is usually a serious
personal problem for the individual, from childhood interactions with parents
through maturity, depending on several factors. The religious context
in which the futant child is brought up, the political and social
situations in which the individual finds HIrself, the rejection by
peers and academia as often happens, are usually all obstacles.
Different individuals of the futant type react to
these negative elements with different strengths of personality, degree
of intelligence and learning and sense of their role. Some break under
the pressures while others persevere. We will come to acknowledge
the futant evolutionary role and give context to it and support to the
futant so they may understand themselves and their potential contribution.
We need to integrate the futant role and unique contribution into the common
consciousness and begin to respect and take advantage of it. True futants
of high caliber can be the equivalent of the Japanese “national treasure”.
The problem of integration is not so much recognizing the futant role but
bringing ourselves to listen to what we, sometimes for a number of somewhat
less than lofty reasons, may be reluctant to hear.
They won’t always be accurate or totally correct
due to the novelty of their vision, their relative personal comprehension
of it, the stability of their personal psychology or biology, or the social
context in which they find themselves, but things will get much better
in our time as they learn to recognize their genetic proclivities
and are recognized for their worth. We should learn to listen and
carefully consider what they have to offer and evaluate and integrate the
vision and role of the futant into society as a valuable evolutionary
The Futant and the Futurist
Futurists are those who study the trends emerging,
the technology developing, the thought emerging, that seem to give
indication of what the future, usually fairly near term, will bring.
The best look for both emerging trends and pay particular attention to
the least determinable, the “wild card” phenomenon which may give a clue
to the least unexpected turn of future events.
There is a difference between futurists and futants.
Futurists tend to inhabit the distinguishable, conceptualizable,
front shoulder of the statistical bell curve, working to determine with
tools of analysis the quantifiable, identifiable, projectable elements
and wild cards out in front of them.
Futants are the genetic wild cards of conscious evolution.
Futants are not mutants in the sense that their genetic structures manifest
sudden or clearly defined mutations. There is a difference between futants
and mutants. Mutants happen by “chance”. Futants are an integral,
successful and valuable evolutionary gambit for determination of and adaptation
to and conscious creation of the future. Futants are the genetically
programmed evolutionary scouts, the evolutionary explorers and experimenters.
In that way they are often seen as genetic revolutionaries.
Futurists are not always futants: futants are inherently
Futurists tend to deal with the future and communicate
about it in intellectual, scientific, technological and statistical
form. Futurists tend to view the future from the present and evaluate
the shorter term future in terms of present conditions and values. Futurists
are counter punchers, evaluating wild cards in terms of how to counteract
or neutralize or integrate them.
Futants ten to view the present from the future and
evaluate the present in terms of the longer range future. Futants tend
to embody, literally, and live the future and communicate and report about
it from their personal experience.
The futurist sometimes has difficulty dealing with
the futant, even when recognizing Hir as such, because one cannot use
any assumption of philosophy, science, psychology or even logic to judge
the experience and the vision of the futant: by its very nature,
the essential and most valuable contribution of the futant is generally
a correction, expansion, revolution or supersession of or in any or all
of these disciplines and the criteria by which they operate. Futurists and
futants need each other: the ideal relationship is one of close cooperation
and contribution to the general evolution of the species.
The Futant Focus
Futants are focused, obviously, on the future,
on consciousness as such, and on the generically human. Determining
what is generically, as opposed to religiously, culturally, parochially,
even scientifically or philosophically defined as the essence of the
human is a fundamental preoccupation. In order to recognize the futant
role and its potential benefit as an evolutionary gambit, however,
we must first arrive at a correct understanding of our particular kind
of evolution in general. Neither the simple Darwinian view nor the
Creationist contradiction of it are valid. We will not understand
ourselves in evolutionary terms until we recognize our genetically engineered
beginnings and special case of rapid evolutionary development as a bicameral
species now stepping out of racial adolescence.
Because futants, to survive, learn early to discern
the obstacles that society and religion throw up against them, they have
resonated with the profound restoration of our species’ true history by
the thesis of the Sumerian scholar, Zecharia Sitchin: we are a
genetically-engineered cross between an indigenous humanoid, Homo-Erectus,
and alien, Annunaki / Nefilim genes, a rapidly evolving bicameral species
now ready to step out of racial adolescence into stellar society.
Religion is shown to be the sublimation of the ancient master-slave relationship
with the alien Anunnaki and this subservient godspell is the deepest dye
in the fabric of our culture. And the godspell mentality is the greatest
threat to the futant. Religion as we know it tends to codify, formalize belief
systems and demand conformity and submission and generally condemns any
evolution of consciousness. This Babel factoring mitigates, indeed militates,
against any generic definition and understanding of what a human being is
in the first place, and what the consciousness potential of the human is
in the second place. But the situation is changing rapidly.
But what of the precocious
Prematurers of inchoate vision,
Waiting all night in line
On the strength of persistent
And clandestine rumor
Of a second edition
After two millennia?
Driven by anticipatory tensions
To brave the tweed, tenured fury
Of vituperative academicians,
The steel-rimmed patronizing
Of cynically derisive scientists,
T he amoral refractivity
Of the theological police,
And the pervasive cultural deafness
That stunts the child,
Contracts the adult,
Enervates the ancients,
They have wandered, bewildered,
Futants and aliens in their time,
Furtively scouring the mindless bazaars
For hand-made parts for their vision;
Naturally noble, sensitive, precocious
Children refusing to close the doors
Of perception on parental command;
Royalty, provided only one conform.
Not nurtured, nor educated to dance
To the rhythms of our private
No toe-hold in the dark,
No adequate maps, no context
So many lost to the mad world,
We have lost too many
In that lonely unnecessary fire.
No longer must the few survivors
Stagger from that scorching reentry
In dazed glory. We need never
Do that to ourselves again.
At the convoluted coda
Of current consensual reality
(A brief period of static grace)
It is history or hallucination,
Nothing less, as we awake
from the suprafamilar,
Of history as mythology,
We need no longer live recycling
The fragmented, maudlin tales
Told by confused ancestors
Across the dying embers
Of somnambulant cultures,
Shuddering at the old words,
The antique awe, self-inditing
Metaphors imprinted in the womb.
Trembling in the fear of our fear,
Wracked and torn by weird irruptions
Of suppressed archetypes
From beneath our dignity.
In the elational daylight
Of genetic enlightenment
We shall overcome the ancient godspell
Slave blindness, god-fright,
Parent taboo, Babel-factoring
Our genetic genius into negative quotients.
Rather, in our time, we shall learn
The sound of our own freedom,
At first disconcerting in the gentleness
Of its echo off the back wall of infinity,
Learn the intricate steps of the quaint
Dance of our oscillatory and peculiar
Kind of consciousness; re-discover
The threads of our common humanity
Woven in the tapestries of our cultures,
Struggle into the lightness
Of an unaccustomed, unassailable integrity.
In the satisfactory afternoon
Of bicameral integration
We become our own
Merging our planetary genius
Into positive unity.
The godspell is broken;
Let our god games begin.
Suggested Reading Is there a truly generically human
modality of systematic evolution of consciousness? Yes. It is called conscious
evolution, self-directed evolution as one’s own evolutionary artist. The
principle of self-reference is the essence of the evolution of consciousness.
Conscious evolution is evolution turned back on itself to afford conscious
choosing of ones evolutionary trajectory.
We often attempt to understand and communicate
a certain type of consciousness with the formalism of another kind of
consciousness. This is always inadequate, particularly when we try to take
the measure of a more expanded kind of consciousness by the rules and parameters
and characteristics of a lesser expanded kind. It causes frustration and
pain and conflict.
Generic Self-Directed Conscious
The technique for generic, constant, self-directed
expansion evolution of consciousness is simple: Begin with one’s consciousness
as it is. Turn that consciousness back self-reflexively on itself in self
examination and analysis. Determine the statements it enables which cannot
be proven by it, the questions it can engender but cannot answer, thereby
determining the limiting parameters of this modality. Recognize, contemplate
and explore the new kind of consciousness (perception / comprehension
/ experience / dimensionality) suggested and required by these statements
and questions. Employ whatever techniques are appropriate to afford direct
experience of this new expanded consciousness. Develop a vocabulary adequate
to describe and explain its nature. Formalize its structure and rules, refine
and expand its potential: use it as an exploratory tool and a criterion
of truth. Use it to gain information about the universe which cannot be
gained by lesser types of awareness. Determine how the elements of the
previous levels of consciousness are subsumed into the new consciousness.
Repeat the cycle as above.
Again, step by step with poetry: Why poetry? Because
poetry, at least in the hands of some, becomes a futant meta-language,
a way to expand the current language, even inventing new words and metaphors
and concepts, to give a name to and express the experience, parameters,
rules and “logic” of the next new dimension of consciousness.

The process recognizes and employs two major principles:
The simplest, most general form of the principle
which dGödelemonstrated (in what has been said to be the most
important theorem within the context of mathematics) and which applies
to all formal systems: no formal system can explain itself completely.
The principle of self-reference, is the most inherent
fundamental characteristic of human consciousness to this point in time.
The most rapid and efficient way, therefore, to determine the limitations
of a system or a form of consciousness is to turn it back on itself in

Each more expanded level of consciousness builds
on the previous level. The previous modality and its true rules are seen
as being subsumed as sub-sets of the more expanded level of consciousness.
This is analogous to the way Newtonian mechanics are correct for the dimensionality
of space and time to which they apply but are subsumed as a subset by the
expanded level of Einsteinian relativity.
Although it sounds like a straightforward and easy
process, humans do not do this easily because herd pressure is always
to maintain the security of whatever formalized system is comfortably
in place at any given time, to maintain the collective consensual kind
of consciousness of which the vast majority seem capable.

What is the kind of consciousness
experienced by the population of Earth currently? What is the next kind
of consciousness to which we are evolving?
The general population possesses habitual Newtonian-Cartesian
three-dimensional, linear time consciousness, with rationality, reason
with its rules of logic, as the logical (pun intended) tool of choice
to discern truth. It has been in this consciousness modality long enough
so that the envelope has been probed, the rules determined, the questions
unanswerable with this kind of consciousness and the statements that it
engenders but cannot prove, quite well determined. Its limits are well realized.
It is important that we identify the generic
nature and arrow of the trajectory of our conscious evolution. It is
the opinion of this author that the best way to understand our conscious
evolution in adequate scientific terms is to recognize that the universe
is expanding or evolving “unevenly”. We perceive and inhabit three dimensions.
Dimensions beyond those three are so tightly “furled” that we cannot
perceive them. The dimensions unfurl sooner in one location than
another for any number of physical reasons. Perhaps the fourth dimension
is reaching full “unfurlment” in our locale just about now --- it may
be fully unfurled for some time in other locations or not at all in others
---- and what we understand as our leading edge of conscious evolution
is our adaptation to the greater dimensionality. This may be taken as
a definition of what our conscious evolution actually is in essence: adaptation
to greater and greater unfurled dimensionality. Conversely, if the universe
were contracting, our evolutionary adaptation would be going in “reverse”.
The “spiritual”, in its most generic, non-religious, non-sectarian form,
may be understood as whatever “newest” dimensionality is opening
up in front of us. Our adaptation is of both intellectual comprehension
and physical, neurological, and sensory.
We are, currently, evolving toward habitual four
dimensional time-space consciousness and perception of the Einsteinian
kind. The early signs in the general population are interpreted as ESP
phenomenon. Certain psychedelics, specifically LSD, are appropriate for
exploring and experiencing this expanded relativistic consciousness. Certain
yogas (and hashish used by the holy men of India ) and meditation and
sensory deprivation modalities are also appropriate although they may
take a great many years of practice to see results. The obstacles, in
the current human situation, to easy achievement are presented by the deep
neural imprints we acquire over our earlier lives which sometimes, more
often than not, although a protective survival mechanism, are partially
or very negative. We are too often handicapped by deep, early conditioning
to now inadequate or even false, limiting philosophical, cultural contexts
We shall attain a fiercely blissful,
Transparent intensity of awareness
Subsuming no-mind, satori, tao, samhadi,
Prajna, wisdom, the austere secret
Of Tibetan jewel mind and elusive enlightenment,
All signifying a charming and childlike beginning,
Beautiful and awkward, a determined self-initiation
Into an assiduous and recursively holy arrogance;
Ancient mind transmuted into its tranquil chrysalis
For which immortality will be its fleeting mating
The question may be asked: what is the fullness of
the potential of human consciousness? The answer is that it is capable
of an open-ended adaptive, self-referential, self-directed, expansion
as its intrinsic essence. Once self-awareness is reached, the process of
expansion recognized self-reflexively, the limitations are only determined
by the neurological potential at any given time. Even that potential, however,
is capable of evolving physically. Therefore any limitations, at any given
time, are foreseeably and potentially supersedable. Anything we can conceive
we can achieve. Anything we can comprehend we can transcend.
The problem has always come, at least to this point
in our racial development, when we have attempted to judge the advancing
consciousness by the rules and criteria of our current consciousness.
How have we dealt with new levels of consciousness
in the past? Perhaps not as consciously (no pun intended) as we can now
but the past does allow us to see a repetitive pattern of analysis, experience,
formalize, transcend, repeat the process.
Are there techniques specific to the various levels
Certainly: Consider the time when we were as rational
as we can be today but rationality had not been formalized, i.e., the
rules of logic, of rational thinking, or reasoning, had not been thought
out and codified. Then we, the Greeks traditionally being given the credit
for it, did codify the rules of logic and gave names and form to the consciousness
(type of awareness, perception of the universe) we call rational.
The next phase, our current transitional phase,
is for the mind to reflexively examine already contributed scientific
and experiential data, to a codification, a formalization of fourth dimensional
physics and consciousness. This cannot be done fully at the level of rational
thought, of logic and Cartesian-Newtonian awareness because the dimensionality
that we are becoming aware of, currently, calls for a logic which is fourth-dimensional.
There is an expanded kind of logic (G. Spencer Brown: The Laws Of Form)
appropriate to the level of fourth dimensional consciousness or relativistic
space-time, as well as an appropriate aesthetics, ethics, set of meta-concepts,
We might ask: What is the difference between fourth-dimensional
physics as developed by Einstein and fourth-dimensional consciousness?
The relationship is one of a reciprocating feedback loop, between the conceptual
and the experiential perception and comprehension of the new dimensionality.
The consideration of this type of physics through formal, mathematical,
philosophical and poetic languages that describes and formalizes it, coupled
to, appropriate, direct experiential techniques, leads,
inevitably, to the kind of expanded, habitual consciousness
that is appropriate and adequate to the comprehension of and operation within
that dimensionality of reality.
If we recognize that easy, habitual four-dimensional
consciousness is the next step, is there indication of what kind of consciousness
comes after that? Obviously quantum consciousness comes after that. Concomitantly,
we will approach and attain physical immortality through genetic and nanotechnology.
Immortality will bring, is bringing, a radical change in human consciousness.
After that? Law of Everything consciousness: life and consciousness in
a known universe. After that? Perhaps time-independent consciousness ....
it becomes difficult to say because of the exponential freedom to choose
which increases as we evolve. We may not even be able to recognize
ourselves physiologically by the time (pun also intended) we get to experimenting
Aren’t there many techniques for evolutionary
consciousness expansion? Yes. It is well to recognize that each is
more appropriate and specific to a certain type of consciousness.
There are meditation techniques, there are the Zen
masters’ techniques, there are bio-physiological techniques like fasting,
sensory deprivation, Sufi dancing, yogas, Chi Kung, Transcendental Meditation,
chanting, the use of mandalas, mantras, psychedelic chemicals, and any
number of methods and modalities. But a few important distinctions should
In the perspective of our past evolution of consciousness
it becomes clear that there are techniques that are specifically appropriate
to take one from a certain type of consciousness to the next and which
most likely will not be appropriate to another type of consciousness. Let
us call them type-specific techniques. The intent of this paper is to identify
and describe the most fundamental generic form of consciousness evolving
modality rather than specific techniques. It is also well to note
that there are two kinds of consciousness changing techniques: static and
Static techniques are those that are meant to reinforce
a particular consciousness, neither expand it nor facilitate transcendence
of it. The meditations of a St. Ignatius of Loyola, the Roman Catholic
Jesuit are a series of readings and examinations and resolutions and affirmations
that were designed to reinforce a particular set of theological principles
of morality and obedience to one’s superior and to the God of the Church.
The dogma of the Roman Church says that you can morally decay but you
are a static creature who cannot evolve. Even the “highest” meditations
of the Catholic mystics was to bring them into union with the Divine but
as unchanging subservient beings. In other contexts this could be called
brainwashing: it is meditation of sorts, but reinforces a static kind of
consciousness rather than facilitates transcendence. Ignatius promoted a military
style religious order and, in effect, it was like a top sergeant drilling
the troops in military discipline. The tree is known by its fruit.
By contrast, as example: the method used by Zen masters,
called a koan, is a dynamic technique. The novice comes to the Zen master
seeking enlightenment. The Zen master often uses questions that have no
rational answer, called koans which he poses to the novice to answer. A
classic and well known koan is “What is the sound of one hand clapping?”
Because they have no rational answer the novice, intent on getting the answer,
puts Hirself through stress and trial to find the answer. But the Zen master
is not really looking for an answer, he is trying to create an event in the
novice. He intends that the novice, because of the intellectual gymnastics
and stress of trying to find an answer to a question that has no rational
answer, will trip neurological relays and open circuits
that will allow him to experience the expanded consciousness of the next
level that subsumes the rational. By analogy, as Einsteinian physics subsumes
Newtonian physics, not as wrong but as a special case subset.
During any phase of the general, racial evolution
of consciousness there will always be a smaller number of humans who have
already attained that consciousness and are moving toward the next stage,
some who are at least aware of stages after that. We have identified
them as futants. If you resonate and recognize yourself as generically
one, your own evolutionary artist of futique orientation,
greetings. Welcome to your native gene pool. You have three days to splash
around, laugh and relax. There is much to be done.
