So I have a bit of a problem. I like reading about futurology - about the cool stuff we can do with technology in the future, and the issues to watch out for surrounding the adoption of said technology. This is all well and good, right up until the fact that apparently some people take "issues surrounding new technology" to mean "post screeds about how the economy is going to blow to smithereens Real Soon Now". (This might be somewhat biased because I really mostly got my stuff from /r/futurology, but still.) Even that might not be a problem, if not for the fact that that's specifically the thought process I want to stop having. Y'see, one of the things that I've worked on a lot, re my trauma, is something called a sense of foreshortened future, which basically means "I'm convinced that I'm going to die at some point soon and act accordingly". As to how I worked on it? I just... started planning good things for "two weeks ahead". Then, after I could viscerally understand that, I pushed it forwards to "three weeks ahead", then "one month ahead", "two months ahead", and so on; right now I'm stuck at nine months, but I figure that's good enough given that I've got some other unrelated problems that I need to fix first re: energy levels and also further education not being evil. So I know that reading about apocalyptic predictions is counterproductive from that. But it's really hard to find groups/aggregators without an apocalypse fixation but also with the focus on topics I like (futurology, grassroots anarchism/socialism, etc.) because as far as I can tell, all these groups have at least some people who think that the collapse is inevitable and/or necessary for progress. I don't want to be reading about the apocalypse because it makes my brain Not Happy and Incapable Of Planning; but I also don't want to have to forego the fact that I enjoy reading everything else. So far I'm just avoiding the groups entirely, but I'd like to know if there's any better answer than that.
