Futurist Garvey/Gravity #WAVES

The concept of futurism in the Black diaspora predates the coining of the term afrofuturism. One great example of this Marcus Garvey’s Universal Negro Improvement Association and the Black Star Line, which envisioned the future of Black Americans as a return, by ship, to Africa, and which took practical steps to create an alternative economy to achieve these goals. Imagine how different the course of history would be, had he succeeded with his mission. On the other hand, one can see the actual effect that his efforts had on the actual future of Black America that would come to be, becoming a catalyst and inspiration for other Black resistance movements, and having an influence in name and philosophy that would go on to span space-time.

ANTI-KY-THE/RA

The mysterious Antikythera Mechanism, an astrolabe known as the first computer, was recovered in 82 fragments from a sunken shipwreck off the island of Antikythera around 1900. Although it is widely believed to have been constructed by a Greek astronomer around 100 BCE, this origin story has not been confirmed. No other such technologically complex artifact appeared anywhere in Europe until late 14th century. In 2015AD, BQF Theorists unearthed rare, previously unseen records and unheard sound clips claiming to detail the true origins of the mechanism as designed and constructed by a secret society in ancient Ifriqiyah as a device for time displacement.

Afterlife of Events

We applied the Black Quantum Futurism gaze to the afterlife of events and astrological influences surrounding the birth, arrest, and death of Sandra Bland in order to synchronize the influences playing a role in Black woman genocide. We believe that astrological events are reversed and act retrocausally from the cosmic future to influence present events that will be subsequently written on the fabric of the past by light and sound.
