Track to the Future

Trains are a good thing.
They gather up people and take them to places in a very efficient way.
Trains have opened up continents and developed countries.
There is nothing really wrong with trains…
except they can only go where there is track.
If there is no track, the train does not go… it is not possible.
The evolution of […]

Words – As a Citizen of the Earth

As a citizen of the earth…

I fully have the right…

to harvest water from the sky

to grow my own food in my own home

to harvest energy from the sun and the wind

to contain and reuse my own waste on my own land

to make my shelter comfortable  without the use of fossil fuels

and to harvest what […]

Words

From now until eternity
Every decision made on this planet
By any jurisdiction
Anywhere
Should be made
With all the peoples
And all the animals
And all the plants
In mind

We (Earthship Biotecture) were asked to help establish a force to retro fit the old nine story concrete agricultural grain silo building, home of the architectural school in Bergen, Norway. Our objectives were as follows…

Dangers of not pursuing our potential

“THE DANGERS OF ALLOWING THE PURSUIT OF  SOMEWHAT IMPERFECT SUSTAINABLE CARBON ZERO HOUSING AS A LEARNING EXPERIENCE IN CERTAIN ‘POCKETS OF FREEDOM’ THROUGHOUT THE LANDS ARE NOT NEARLY AS GREAT AS THE DANGER OF NOT PURSUING IT AT ALL.”

Centralized Utility Systems Hinder Evolution

When a municipality invests tax revenues into a centralized utility system such as a water facility, a sewage treatment plant or a power plant; they employ the latest technology of the time and spend millions of dollars to design and build the facility.
In addition to the great expense, the process of manifesting a centralized utility takes several years. Due to the great expense of both time and money, this facility will have to serve for at least fifty years. This means that, even though new technology may arrive on the scene, they are locked into the facility they have built for fifty years. This places a fifty year time increment on feedback, knowledge, reconstruction and resulting evolution.

A Good Virus

They have virus advertising and virus approaches to marketing and all that. That is a new and big thing compared to what it used to be. Well, I got something else. I think this is how the Earthship concept should be sold or spread, let’s say, like a virus.

I kind of like that concept there. The thing is, the concept involves building this building… how we run the crew, how we make money, how we run around the world doing whatever. Our stain on whatever is around us is what we are. This is way more comprehensive than just a business. A business is not my real motivation. My motivation is to turn this planet into just a most unbelievably beautiful living being which it was before humans came here but have humans participate in that. That is really what I want to do.
