Overstanding Who Controls Your Future?

Overstanding Who Controls Your Future?

 

Human beings share a common trait with community centered animals like the dolphins, elephants, wolves, lions, monkeys and others. Many studies have shown how small numbers can influence large populations. Some question the Hundredth Monkey Effect, but other studies and simple observation show us the influence a small group can have on the whole of society. Many know this from the science of quantum entanglement or from original intuition. Many find it uncomfortable to accept that they indeed have an influence and thus a responsibility. It is much easier to blame someone or something else for the state of the planet and population. Trump or Hillary?

 

Dolphins are considered to be the longest living intelligent creatures on Earth, having reigned for approximately 35 million years before humans beings entered the scene. Many believe they are far more intelligent than humans, pointing to an extra portion of their brain that is enlarged. It seems from many studies that although each dolphin is very much an individual with it’s unique personality, they ultimately do not differentiate themselves from their group pod. This is how they are so easily rounded up into a cove and slaughtered. They can very easily jump over the barriers and escape death, but a dolphin understands well the power of “one for all and all for one.”

 

Some may say that this is weakness, which is why they are so easily killed. Surely humans are gods on earth who rule above and apart from all other creatures. Our strength comes from individual power, brute force, and our competitive nature. Anyone who doesn’t believe this will get plowed over by the reality of the world. This default perception of reality is part of an obsolete script that has a horrific track record. The majority of what we learn from our history class is the war, racism, and chaos of past times. We are taught that our laws, civilization, and money are our only saviors from our violent natural instincts. It’s a dog eat dog world.

 

This way of educating the future generation does not account for the thousand of years before we became sheep. How about the peoples of past who survived thousands of years without destroying each other or earth’s natural systems. Our darkest human atrocities took root with the introduction of what we call civilization.  Where has this understanding led us? With the continuous and growing poisoning of the world and subjugation of humans, it seems like an overstanding is now needed instead of understanding.

 

To change our future we must take a wider angle and go beyond the layline to work from a place of complete intuitive comprehension of our relationship to each other. Overstanding means coming from a place that is above the ideologies most now consider to be the real world. This old understanding has all but made our planet a wasteland – physically and spiritually. We don’t suggest going back to grass huts and running around naked. But we have the technology and the ability to communicate and create like never before. Instead of allowing and accepting being enslaved and poisoned, we could collectively decide to form our own future. You just might be the hundredth monkey.

 

Zero Net Energy Dome Homes

Zero Net Energy Dome Homes

The way we get energy will change the course of the future. From solar cells to magnetic wave energy – the future looks brighter. Although the technology exists to build a better home, new dwellings continue to be built essentially the same way as they have been for over a century. This is great news for the industries that arose to prominence during the industrial revolution. The gas, oil, coal, construction, and banking industries are all about business as usual. However, there are now many more options available that we will explore and implement in the coming months.

Our first phase of the new dome home design will be to outfit all domes with airtight insulated triangle panels that do not let air in or out. Proper insulation and air control allow for homes to maintain a constant temperature without the need for cooling and heating of the interior air. Homes all over the world have demonstrated that there are various techniques to accomplish this seemingly impossible feat. How can you heat and cool a home without a furnace or air conditioning unit? The answer is controlled air exchange.

Controlled air exchange has been accomplished and proven to work by never allowing air to come directly into or out of the home. This is accomplished by designing an air tight structure accompanied by a series of tubes that allow and release air slowly, while mixing the air that comes in with air that comes out. Calculating the proper timing and tube arrangement is where the science comes in. Luckily we have several mad scientists that have volunteered to help. We are currently working on a nice looking spiral design that will fit nicely atop the dome interior.

We will be using solar energy to power self sufficient arduino micro controllers, which in turn will be monitored through a Raspberry Pi mini computer – not much bigger than a deck of playing cards. A series of sensors, small fans and servo motors will monitor and control the flow of air as needed. Depending on the temperature needs, the air will flow faster or slower and be cooled or heated slightly as it passes through the tubes. This cooling and heating only needs to be applied to a very small amount of air within the tubes. In this way, tiny fans and micro heating elements are all that are needed. The exact diameter of the tubes will vary by dome diameter.  Like all of our open source projects, the final design will be posted online for all to use.

We are called Future of the Free because we envision something different for the next generation. We are determined to end the cycle of paper chains by devising new and innovative ways to live without being gross consumers, but instead citizens that are keenly aware of their influence on the big picture. The solutions are before us and are quite simple and logical. The hardest part seems to be separating from the grid that we are all so comfortable supporting. Stay tuned to see the future unfold.

Should You Build A Square or Round Home?

Should You Build A Square or Round Home?

As we prepare to build our first proof of concept dome homes, the differences of a square and round building become very significant. Nearly every part of the box structure is attached to entrenched interests, regulations, monthly bills, and draining maintenance and repair schedules. The characteristics of the square design mirror the mechanism of the grid which they are part. The dome home is specifically designed to be liberating at every step – from building and maintenance to daily freedom to live. The significance of building a round dome structure goes much deeper than superiority of strength, utility, and sustainability. A dome design contrasts sharply with the underpinnings of control that are cemented within the very foundations of the grid box society and structures we currently contain ourselves within.

The open source geodesic dome home is designed to overcome the hooks and anchors inherent in a the grid system. You have the typical 30 year enslavement to the lending banks and insurance companies of every sort, utility bills, and then many more bills. Your childhood centers on education so you believe, then education loans so you have to believe. Look forward to rising healthcare costs that will profitably pretend to fix you once the cycle of fear, anxiety, and poisoned food leave you a shell of a human. Also, this box home is forever in need of maintenance for it’s outdated power, plumbing, drainage, electrical and temperature control systems. Beware of this stilted structure prone to collapse in times of earthquake or severe weather. Dealing with all this will make you feel like you are trapped in a box.

Based on nature’s structural engineering, a dome’s members all support each other, and thus architects confirm it is the strongest structure known to man. The dome home can be portable or permanent and easily built by anyone from materials found everywhere. By design, repair is easy and replacement parts readily available and inexpensive. The triangle panels are magnetic and easily rearranged, removed or replaced. The same is true of the portable solar system, plumbing system, and the closed loop water capture and compost systems.  No heavy equipment or tools are needed to build, repair or maintain the dome. Add food production with gardens and aquaponic bio domes for complete health and freedom.

By looking beyond the grid, seemingly insurmountable obstacles can easily be overcome with just a bit of effort focused on our families and future. The biggest obstacle is our pre programmed perspective that has us continuously distracted and tangled in tradition, red tape and regulation. Square structures have not caught up to the newest technology and methods of using energy, water and food – without creating waste. Geodesic domes are far superior in strength, sensibility, and sustainability. The circular environment is conducive to free air and energy flow. The significance of access to these unseen  energy waves are largely ignored now, but are becoming realized as new instruments of measurement become known. The box structure blocks access to naturally occurring energy waves and information that is all around us.

We believe a new type of freedom is emerging that is based on self dependence and the ability to truly control our destiny. It really is not complicated or time consuming to build a beautiful home and provide food and security for one’s family. A free society inside a box system is a fantasy. The state of the world’s affairs and the health of earth’s real systems shows how well this square civilization has worked out.  A new type of progress is at hand – one that centers on the daily growth of our connection and commitment to a strong round community where all members support each other.

An Unscientific Method: Why We Build Domes

An Unscientific Method: Why We Build Domes

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.

La La Land and the Power of Peace

La La Land and the Power of Peace

Many folks ask if our self sustainable dome project is to prepare for coming doom and gloom. There is a growing fear of what many call a societal breakdown which necessitates armed protection. Online and all around social media there is evidence of a growing interest in owning and learning to use firearms. Many call this a necessary evil, and proclaim we should get armed, be realistic – and quit living in La La Land. We believe the term ‘necessary evil’ is a pervasive oxymoron that in due time will no longer be an acceptable excuse for perpetuating violence. In the spirit of sustainability we choose peace as our protection rather than arms.  Here is why.

 

Everyone remembers learning of the forming of the Union from the original 13 colonies. We memorized the names of generals and dates of the bloody clashes with the natives. Most believe that there was no way to live in peace on the same land. We rarely hear about the peace in Pennsylvania where the non violent Quakers had no incidents of murder or rape living amongst the natives. It was not until the Union formed and the military established itself in Pennsylvania that killings began. Some Quakers then died – but only three that had joined the newly established army.

Similar to the Middle East story… the “powers that be” made sure their financial interests were protected through puppet politicians and armed proxy governments and guerrillas in the last half of the twentieth century. Thus Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras all had civil wars followed by decades of violence and social unrest. This subsequently led to generations of lost boys who now form the deadliest gangs in these countries where more than a dozen murders occur daily in the cities. On August 16-18, 2015 there were 125 murders in just 3 days in El Salvador.  This has led to an estimated 66,000 kids fleeing for their life in the last 2 years.

Neighboring Costa Rica also had a civil war, but then officially abolished its military in 1948. What followed was peace ever since and the emergence of a safe haven in Central America. This goodwill seems to have grown as Costa Rica recently decided to close public zoos in the spirit of honoring an animal’s right to freedom. They have adopted a no cage policy for animals in a time where humans are being caged at unprecedented rates around the world – ironically mostly in America – the land of the free.

On the road to Indian independence many of Gandhi’s followers were met with armed forces bent on stopping their quest. When peace was persistent the armed forces were stopped in shame – some even fled scared. Martin Luther King and many others showed similar success. For a time John Lennon was considered an enemy of the United States. Peace proclaimers are considered dangerous and are commonly killed by bullets – but they are hardly silenced. This is why our project has nothing to do with acting from fear. Rather, we are preparing for a future that is sustainable. Building and living in humane communities in peace is the only sustainable path. We choose to live in La La land. Light easily illuminates and cuts through darkness, yet no amount of darkness can ever dim the light.

 

La La Land and Peace

 

Disney’s Tomorrowland

Disney’s Tomorrowland

A few days ago at lunch my friend asked me what science experiment I would perform if I could choose anything at all. My response was this: What would happen if everyone on Earth was focused on the exact same thought and feeling – at the same exact time. Would the physical world change – even if for a moment? We laughed, but realized this may very well be possible really soon. Everyone on Earth will have a smartphone in the coming years, so a simultaneously experienced video broadcast could really happen – and achieve this experiment.  The next day we happened to watch Disney’s newest movie Tomorrowland. This scenario doesn’t happen in the movie, but the premise of a reality created by our imagination is certainly nothing new to Disney. No spoilers ahead.

Tomorrowland, like many other science fiction futuristic films, shows our current day as the end of times. It was good to see the topic of the future approached in such an entertaining way, while still broaching the big issues of our time. The emphasis on a future filled with incredible technology is not so far fetched considering the incredible changes upon us. The latest special effects are spectacular and fresh, but the storyline of “believing” is in the bones of Disney. Most of their movies seem to have very similar premises: the archetypical bad guys or world threatening crisis beat by the underdog powered by truth, heart, and courage.

The big take away from Tomorrowland is that the future is in our hands. This may seem like hot air, and not seem like anything profound or special at all. We all know this. We are independent, self willed and in control of our destiny. We are free and at the pinnacle of progress. Our technology will come to the rescue and science will be our savior. But if this is the case, then why are conditions getting increasingly worse for earth’s health, and seriously threatening life for future generations. All the while there appears to be many well funded organizations and powerful governments tackling the problems. yet the headlines keep getting more disturbing with each passing day.

What will the land of tomorrow really be like? Will some fantastical story unfold like we see in Disney’s latest sci-fi adventure. Is the world of a better tomorrow just a fantasy – or to be molded by our own hands? This is the important question this latest movie poses. It is nothing new to ponder these macro matters, but perhaps the time has come to dream up solutions. Walt Disney famously said, “If you can dream it you can do it.”  He also said, “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” Disney has done what it does best, and has framed the solution in fantasy. It is up to us to remove it from the realm of fantasy and truly “believe”.
