OUR MISSION is to have a blast integrating mind-blowing new technologies, discoveries, and movements into character-driven, dramatic stories. We aim to captivate, entertain, inspire, and provoke people to reflect on themselves and our world. In addition to science, technology, and culture, our stories explore issues related to relationships, religion, politics, law, business, entertainment, fashion, parenting, aging, and more. We're curating a list of past singularitives and hypothetical future singularitives.

OUR MOTIVATION in founding Singularitive Ranch is derived from the humanistic and entrepreneurship principles that the most compelling way to convey ideas and inspire thought is through storytelling, especially stories that emotionally move people. 

 

OUR COLLABORATORS rally around the realization that, as with creating great companies, developing great stories is a team effort. This team effort includes beta readers, writers groups, and more. That's why the attribution for these stories is Singularitive Ranch, not a singular author. Here's a list of our beta readers to date.

 

OUR APPROACH to developing stories is based on the same modern techniques that are used to develop software. For example, we build stories using technology concepts such as platform architecture, wire-framing, agile development, minimum viable product / story, and we view the revisioning of story manuscripts as analogous to new releases of software apps (learn more about our approach).

Use the stories and the teaching guide as fun, inspirational material in science, literature, writing, and change-maker curriculum for high school and college students.
