Peaceaware is defined as insight into a ♥-of-Care, a non-linear storytelling that is shaping the future, the destining of creating peace, by insightful awareness into the Second Renaissance called 'Quantum Storytelling,' a communion of quantum physics with a peaceaware storytelling. The French have two words for future: 'futur' as 'prediction' of how the 'before' will recur in the future, and 'avenir' the shaping and creating of future (the bet). This double meaning is the foundation of 'antenarrative' the 'before'-narrative solidifies, and the 'bet' of avenir, the shaping and creating of the future that is before narrative. Antenarrative is simply put a connectivity of little living stories we live and the bigger grander narratives that fossilize. That is a avenir happening between physics and storytelling. In 1st Renaissance art developed perspectives and science fell in love with Newtonian mechanistic physics resulting in late modern capitalism. both developments (physics & capitalism) transformed storytelling. In 2nd Renaissance art goes quantum and physics-science is falling in love with the observer effect, in a new ways of fore-conceiving materiality in very different ways than ever before. The old materiality had what Zygmunt Bauman calls 'solid modernity' and the new one, a 'liquid modernity.' Our solid modernity was the iron cage of Weberian bureaucracy and the mechanistic physics materialist rhetoric of vulgar representation of our material condition. When this new materiality encounters a more liquid storytelling, the communion is 'Quantum Storytelling' a very different materialist rhetoric, not as a linear-repeating prediction (from before, but rather as a 'bet' of 'avenir' the future-ahead-of-itself, arriving to transform the past and present. We are just beginning to notice how George Herbert Mead (1958), Martin Heidegger (1962), and especially proto-pragmatist Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1962) have a very different conception of space-time-materiality. In particular, Merleau-Ponty's (1962: 309) temporal wave and his sense of spiral (p. 315), provides a very different antenarrative: "But co-existence, which in fact defines space, is not alien to time, but is the fact of two phenomena belonging to the same temporal wave" (p. 309). I combined these insights in the film, with Heideggerian ontology, a being-in-the-world where spiral-antenarratives buffeted by updraft and downdraft forces is mediating in-between little living stories we live and the narrative grand representations. I am working on a new book on Pragmatist Storytelling Philosophy, where the pragmatist-ontology antecedes and antenarrative-connects the epistemic narratives, the empiric narratives, with the little living stories.
