We have come to believe that the fabric of our existence, the ontology of being, is not based on matter or energy, but on data.

This has become our new weapon to fight against the forces of randomness and indifference.

Completely novel toolboxes have become available in the last 2 years: cutting-edge technologies that were originally used during the moment of creation of both living macrocosms and microcosms.

These tools will enable us to change our destiny, take evolution in our own hands and replace the philosophy of need by the philosophy of want.

During this event we will study the impact of these new ideas on Bits-Atoms-Neurons-Genes (the essential building blocks of our reality).

After millennia of READING the codes of our existence, we seem to be ready to WRITE them ourselves.

*Dare to know is the translation of “Sapere Aude”, the battle cry for the Age of Enlightenment, during the 17th and 18th centuries.
