Glitch is not a negative trait, gene dysfunction is
what our superheroes have shown.
stillness does not provide anything new because
it is a straight line, but it is the pulse of the imbalance.
In this version of the conference we present models
that have experienced an experience in which
their life and society will be better.
In this Event we focus on patience, certainty, imagination, planning and risk.
