+ what inspires us
 
Seymour Projects is motivated by a passionate desire to explore the unlimited possibilities of human potential. We think that humanity is just at the very beginning of understanding the breadth of our innate capacities. In the future new senses will emerge and new paradigms of thought will shake the very foundations that our current scientific thinking is founded on. As our sensory abilities and understanding of our own power increases, certain technologies will attempt to usurp our freedom and agency. Seymour Projects exists in part to help ensure that we remain connected to the very essence of what makes us human.
 
Our ideology draws from a wide variety of different sources but is predominantly inspired by Carl Jung, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Nikola Tesla, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.

 “We are aware of our precarious imbalance: of our persistent and ever-increasing production of power and our inadequacy of purpose; of our critical analytic ability and our creative paucity; of our triumphantly efficient technical education and our ineffective, irrelevant education for values, for meaning, for the training of the will, the lifting of the heart, and the illumination of the mind.”
