9:01 AM July 11, 2029"Today, there were many battles against Skynet's forces all over the world. But the two most important ones were happening in Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado, where Skynet's mainframe was housed. The other was here, in the Westside, where the real prize was; the site of Skynet's second largest and most guarded underground complexes."
The future in which human decisions are removed from Strategic Defense, and Skynet; designed to control, automatically, the United States nuclear strike force, becomes self-aware and immediately launches a first-strike, while riding out the retaliatory firestorm in its hardened, underground complex - deep within Cheyenne Mountain, will be averted by our children. It is our children who already walk the battlefield of the future; a battlefield on which we all, already live.
Mankind is not obsolete. Even in the worst of situations, our individual strengths always overcome our collective weaknesses and the promise of civilization will always triumph over its own mistakes. The war that starts on August 29, 1997 need not happen. It need not happen because an artist has forewarned us. In recognition of the Artist's ability not only to create a nightmare scenario like Terminator 2 / Judgment Day, but to also risk giving a time and place for its resolution; thus creating a new reality amidst a reality that grows ever more unreal, the Colorado Springs Center For The Contemporary Arts formally accepts the challenge implicit in doing so. The Center intends to produce a series of 7 summer concerts, perhaps at the foot of Cheyenne Mountain itself, in celebration of the victory that takes place here, in our own community, on July 11th, 2029.
The first series of 6 NO FATE shows, will begin on August 29, 1992, with the sixth show taking place on August 29,1997; Judgment Day itself. The seventh and final show will take place on July 11, 1998, in honor of our children who win the war; 31 years from that very date.
We know that Time-Displacement can be a little hard to follow but bear
with us. The NO FATE shows; full of surprises, will be like nothing Colorado
Springs has ever seen and you can only benefit from supporting, and then
joining us in creating the fate that we will all be making for ourselves.
"The future is not set. There is NO FATE but what we make for ourselves."
