Thinking Like a Cloud (Project Sky+)
Can humans acquire the art of the long view? We think so. Thinking Like A Cloud is a research project focused on developing a scheme to spark a (potentially radical) expansion of the human mind, allowing us to make more sustainable decisions. We collect cloud samples in the troposphere with the Cloud Collector launched on a weather balloon. The samples are ingested by experimental subjects, and the microbes found in the samples are examined for their role in ecosystems and their influence on human behavior.
