Out there. Way out there.

What do the Declaration of Independence, Giant Sequoias, Isaac Asimov’s Foundation Trilogy, life-extending technologies, and Memetic Science have in common? If you know, maybe you can tell me what this collection of futuristic websites have to do with one another:

Futures’ Edge, The Prime Radiant, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happines.org, and the Institute for Memetic Reseach

They are all loosely linked to one another. They are all similarly designed. The writing is similarly evasive and obscure. And they all have kind of an Illuminati-esque sci-fi conspiracy-paranoid tinge to them. I can’t put my finger on it, but something about the group of them creeps me out in an X-files kind of way. But still I’m curiously fascinated. Kind of like the first time I read a Dr. Bronner’s Soap Label. (pdf file)

So what’s up with this? Anyone?
