What is it?

2?4> (Too stupid for the future) – is an ongoing research movement for intentional radical and pragmatic change.


2?4> defines stupidity as decision making that sabotages the well being of the living world and humanity embedded in that system. Humankind, biologically, has specific difficulties with thinking and decision making. We do not compassionately recognise our weakness rather we overestimate our intellectual capacity, our practice of rationality at the level of society, system and the individual.


Using multi/interdisciplinary methods 2?4> specifically looks at problems related to 3 pillars of decision making; Data (how and what are we considering and measuring?), Time (how do we use time in relation to thinking), and Thinking (how are we thinking, is it effective).
