Is A Revolution on The Way?

Oct 28, 13 Is A Revolution on The Way?

Posted by in Blog, Lifestyle

Russell Brand’s latest interview is circulating the web right now at a frantic pace.  But its not because the British comedian has made a gaffe or outrageously inappropriate comment.  Rather, the charismatic social commentator (who once admitted that as a child he thought he might be Jesus returned,) has said out loud what we all already knew.  With great confidence and positivity, Brand announced that the system is dead.  That government as we know it has stalled and can never be reformed back to a place that serves the people.  He announced that a revolution was coming.  Like the first few passengers who realize a ship is sinking, there are growing numbers of people who are ‘checking out’ of the current system.  Whether its young people who have stopped voting, or middle aged women who have sold everything and moved into a caravan, or the growing communities that are returning to farming and creating systems of barter and trade; some of us know the gig is up!  While what Brand says isn’t new, his conviction and fearlessness in welcoming the sweeping change is inspiring!  If you haven’t seen this video yet, I recommend every single second of it!  Like one of the first leaves to fall in autumn, could this be an indicator of the change to come?

A Disturbing Message Across Time & Culture

Oct 13, 13 A Disturbing Message Across Time & Culture

Posted by in Blog, Lifestyle

The United States Department of Energy is currently designing a project in the desert of New Mexico.  It’s a dump site where they plan to dump and store over 500,000 barrels of radio active waste.  The waste is being drilled 1/3 of a mile down into a “geophysical-inert thick salt formation”.  This waste will be considered dangerous for up to 10,000 years. One of the few positives to come out of this story is the fact that the government has done extensive research to try and design a specific architecture around the site.  The purpose of the design is to warn future generations and cultures that the site is dangerous and should not be disturbed.  10,000 years is a long time to wait, and at least the designers of the project have accepted that they don’t know what could happen between now and then.  They wanted to leave behind a timeless message that a band of humans coming across in the future would understand and stay away from – regardless of massive language or cultural changes. In trying to go beyond written language, there has been interesting work done in the understanding of archetypes and how humans feel about their surroundings.  In a newsletter article titled: “An Architecture of Peril” requirements and suggestions have been laid out for creating a landscape that will warn people away from the certain doom that would await them if they were to disturb the site. I highly recommend reading the full article.  It made me think of the messages that ancient cultures might have left for us, and our own efficacy in interpreting them.  But I was also intrigued by the recommendations and whether or not I thought an ancient culture would be able to figure it out.  For example, the article recommends obviously that nothing with moving parts will endure, and that metal may be scavenged for future uses. All the components of the site must be able to last for thousands of years with no maintenance....
