Our dome building ventures go much deeper than it’s obvious usefulness as a portable, self sustaining dwelling. We understand that the structure of our world itself is rooted in the everyday actions and beliefs of the population. Most are “educated” to believe that we are simply another animal with instincts and genetic predispositions linked to survival, competition, and limited by the material environment. This is the traditional perspective, and certainly fits nicely with the program the majority of the world runs on. However, a close look at ancient writings and “new” scientific knowledge points to the difference between the animal and the human. There is a grand difference between what our language and communication is capable of – when compared to other living creatures.
Noam Chomsky, often called the father of linguistics, studied how mostly all animal communication is in response and linked to some external condition in the environment. Does this mean animals don’t think or have feelings? Hardly, and if you ever met an animal you likely know. Animals have always been intricately linked to human life and likely use sounds in ways that do effect humans. Consider the songs of birds. This is an interesting area of study for the future. We currently have lots of research on human language. Chomsky notes that the language of humans is 99% internal and never reaches the tongue. So what happens to all the rest of the language that goes on internally. What is it? What does it mean? What are its affects and effects? Interestingly, new studies show that our DNA is always changing in response to language – and is often called the book of life.
Many answers are now emerging from brain scans, magnetic image resonance, and experiments in quantum physics. The results and findings being revealed from this body of evidence turns out to be quite ancient. What we think, believe and most importantly feel, determine consequences – and are fundamental to the creation of our physical reality. The power of our language is not simply to communicate external conditions and warnings, but rather a mechanism of thought and feeling utterly unique. We are unlike any other animal. Our feelings and thoughts communicated through internal conversation, affects what we call reality. This ultimately ends up causing what we currently consider scientifically measurable effects. The affect portion, seems to be the beginning of cause, but is all largely ignored in modern scientific inquiry. Only the physical effects and observations are typically considered relevant. This leads many to now consider the Scientific Method to be increasingly obsolete and indeed unscientific.
What you know undeniably – and what you believe based on tradition and culture are often altogether different. Finding out why, and pulling them apart is what we hope the future brings. Our world population now believes in a boxed world based on the physical proof we ourselves have built. We often ignore what we know to be true since it is framed as unrealistic or idealistic. What if we forget about making pre programmed excuses for our world’s growing problems? What if we began to realize we create with our every thought and feeling. What if we gradually started to act on what we know to be unequivocally true. The world is round and cannot bear a linear system of power and control, defined by manipulated politics, materialistic walls, and a fictitious economy. What if the goal were to change? We aim to act on what we know to be true. This is why we build domes. We believe that how we live today will determine the reality of tomorrow.
