Message: Inventing the future
"The future cannot be predicted, but futures
can be invented."

Dennis Gabor

Budapest, 1972:

“I have been living a double life for long – it is 15 years now: I am a Physicist and an Inventor. This is one of my lives, and the other is to be a social writer. I know for long time that our culture is in a great danger.”

“I have confidence in that problems can be solved, although I have to admit that my hopes are based on optimism rather than on exact figures. However, I have always thought that the only possible working theory of a responsible man is optimism.”

He played an active role in the realisation of the objectives of the Club of Rome.
