The polarization of the people has become poignant. Many look forward to 2020 so they can elect a new leader. Many are warily aware that the division, entrenched lobbyist, and trillions in debt will not simply dissipate. Yet there seems to be no better alternative. We see things differently. The future we foresee has nothing to do with a savior leader or government plan to get the economy straight. Our 2020 vision is based on a mass realization of simple truths, and a rejection of normalized lies. This is not truth in a philosophical sense, but one of living together in tribes – free of the trappings that separate us. The more you add to the truth the more you take from it. This means no more excusing every problem as complicated – a positive approach that does not use the blueprints of our current system. By creating instead of conceding, there is a hopeful and focused vision for new communities built from those willing to walk away from the matrix. Our latest portable and self sustaining dome home is ready to be a part of this future.
We offer our design as an open source project to help with some of our most pressing problems. We envision new towns of self sustainable and inexpensive geodesic dome homes that support a better way of living – one that offers an uncomplicated path to the basic needs of a home, food, energy, and community. The lack of true cohesive care and mentorship has led to an epidemic in addiction, violence, racism and depression. How many mass shootings and teen suicides are needed before we accept the blaring reality we are walking. It is clearly understood that addiction like most human unrest, is caused by a lack of human connection. It is time for a system that fosters human needs instead of profiting from them.
Living with true community and communication is idealistic mumble jumble since humans are hardwired for self interest above all. Although this is the knee jerk response we are taught as our history; there is another way that does not have to be taught – since it comes naturally. It reveals itself instantly whenever we see another in need or in pain. The conditioned compartmentalization of our minds melts and humans will instinctually help each other. The response to this year’s storms is a good case in point. Our human connection can never be completely muffled by the rigid grid matrix that has been structured over the last few thousand years. Futuristic and apocalyptic science fiction films very often reflect this premise. The super powerful and scary empire is always fumbled by hope and heart. The stories we tell show the hidden truths we all understand.
We are taught to live defensively, as if it were the normal state. Constant conflict and competition create an anxious population living the Stockholm Syndrome. Thousands of years of history have proven this a very effective way to control the masses and keep power. We are convinced or mandated to accept that it is our civic duty to support organizations and institutions of every type. They are there to protect us. But so many now understand who these institutions truly serve. We reject a world based on lies and fate born of fear. We opt to take responsibility by creating a different world daily.
We lean on an understanding of the universe’s paradigm and the significance and power of our words and feelings. Our dreams are not simply the domain of Disneyland. They are in our thought, speech, and emotional energy. You do not need an organization, politician or any middleman to send out your heart’s intent. Many stories of old are imprinted in our synapses to blind us from the beauty before us. They often strip our potent power to create reality. No more real news or fake news – only the news we create daily. Consciousness and our heart’s magnetism are the only answer to realize our power. Once we understand we are the authors, the big money media machines can no longer dictate the scripts that control our lives. The time has come to reject the paper chains of an enslaving system.
Both left and right believe they are the smart ones with all the answers. Both are programmed with words and numbers to define themselves as separate and in constant comparison and competition with the other. All the while the bickering goes on, the present is lost and the future is usurped. Ancestral, family and community ties are steadily becoming obsolete. Our humanity is grounded in solidarity, but is currently largely dormant under the suppression of separation. However, the clear instinctual awareness that we are one source can cut through our clouded hearts like a laser.
Instead of Art of War being on the reading list, how about the Art of Peace instead. We spend $700 million a day on bombs and warfare. Imagine if those hard earned resources went toward the future of our children. This is not complicated. It is time for attention focused on reality rather than the script that gives air to a world at war. No one wants to stop the gravy train and become an outcast by accepting this hard fact. It is time to end the incessant conversation about the sport of politics and the characters that create the dreadful storyline of the powerful and the sheeple they control. We are all powerful. No amount of big guns, bank accounts, or legislation can replace our true power to create. We all hold the universe in our mind’s eye. Everyone for president in 2020. Soul up.
The real magic of our feelings has been deadened or desperately diminished to serve the purpose of the few in power. The logic of life is replaced by a nonsensical economy based on continuous growth on a finite planet. Peace, purpose, and prosperity will spread exponentially like the nodes of a sprouting plant once we abandon the fiction we are collectively living. Most of our energy props up and supports the current state. Tomorrow’s generation can only be taught anew by witnessing a different reality than money and power over all else. Community driven and family focused activity are crucial. Respect for big banks and leaders must be replaced by respect for one’s ancestors, elders and innate wisdom. Basic sustenance cannot be held as a short leash to one’s awareness of their true talents and contribution to the whole.
With the height of ignorance and arrogance before us – the tides will change. Once we stop repeating the lies, we can get back to the basics and beauty of real life – untainted and demented by words of separation and scarcity boxed in a model of racism, sexism, and capitalism. There is nothing honorable or respectable about accolades from the current establishment. The future has no labels and no leaders … “down with the isms and schisms.”
This is the final blog regarding our intentions. What follows will be actions and documentation of the implementation. Our 2020 vision is about the beginning of an awakening and eye opening such that we may all see more clearly. What is happening now does not reflect reality, but a programmed ideology which enriches and empowers the few while fleecing the fooled. Prisons for profit says that the system is perfect. It is the people who are bad. The problem is bad behavior or simply psychological – which can be fixed with punishment, therapy, or drugs. We reject this notion. In the near future we will begin to see the current discourse as barbarically absurd. A complete lack of realization of the light and life thriving amongst us. We are at the brink of a change in technology and human perspective. “The present is pregnant with the future” – Voltaire. The water has just broken.
Some may say that If all this is true, then we would have a better world already. However, the true human heart is currently buried under a lifetime of living on poison pills of the media we absorb. We unwittingly live with constant anxiety that fuels the power of our masters. This is easily done when the basics for survival must be obtained by conforming to a failing system. There seems to be no choice. This is where our dome home project comes in. We do not believe in fighting the system, but creating a new one instead.
This assessment may be dismissed by some, especially those who benefit from the current state of affairs. However, we believe that there are many that will readily walk away from the matrix that enslaves them, and begin a new kind of living. There are still areas where new communities and townships can be formed. Most land is tied up in red tape and mandatory hooks into the polluting for profit system. These were artificially brought into control by those claiming to protect us. “What has been written by man can be unwritten.” If you still believe in these systems, then we will not try to convince you. If you see the real world for what it is and desire to put your love and energy into something new – we welcome you to join in the creation of a new way.
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.
I remember a particular World War II film our class watched in high school, as if it were yesterday. It showed footage of a vendor just outside a Nazi concentration camp with a glass box displaying human tattoo swatches. There were jovial ladies viewing the skinned tattoo art, like they were jewelry shopping in a boutique. They wore immaculate clothing and seemed like the nicest folks you could meet. This was both stunning and horrifying. It was difficult to imagine how they could ignore the human suffering and smoke spewing from the camp in the background. The class was appeased with an assurance that this could never happen again. Still there was a burning yearning to understand what all the good people were doing while Germany transformed.
Certainly there were those who detested the crimes against humanity, but most were silenced into submission for fear of being blacklisted, scorned, or killed. Discent can be deadly in an environment where there is no tolerance for freely voiced opposition. This dangerous state of affairs does not happen overnight. It is a slow wave of escalating fears that are captured and harnessed by power brokers, and then repurposed with propaganda logic – void of branches. Some have named this the totalitarian tiptoe. This creates a state and system that is beyond reproach. Terrible things can happen when questioning one’s own self and society is no longer possible.
Respecting those who challenge the norm is most crucial for freedom. The recent backlash against Colin Kaepernick for sitting during the national anthem is concerning whether or not you agree with his methods. Taking a stand by sitting down and not participating in peaceful protest is a time proven method to instigate change. History shows us that those who have done this in the past are treated brutally, but are ultimately redeemed as defenders of freedom once time unfolds. Rosa Parks’ historic act of simply sitting at the front of a bus in defiance of racial injustice is a good example. At the time the majority criticized her acts as criminal.
We are all a valuable part of a larger whole. Although only a small minority feel they actually have the power to steer the machine. Some are switch operators, some can make tweaks, some can simply stall it, but we all have the ability to affect our course. Sometimes the best way to take a stand is to sit down and hold back one’s support. Now more than ever the courage to speak out should be cherished and not criticized.
It takes a consensus to move in any direction. Since most everyone wants love and peace for their family – we will have it once selfish interests no longer control the agenda. Collectively we all steer the human experience on earth. There is a common thread of goodness that is strong in people of all political, religious, and cultural backgrounds. Our ongoing dome project is woven of this fine thread of humanity. We are driven by the inability to sit idle and watch the program. We prefer to actively create something new and different.
The recent tragedy in Dallas,Texas opened an opportune time for Congress to sneak the Sith’s Dark Act into law. But there could be positive after effects as well. A new dialogue has begun. The continued incidents of mass shootings and violence by and towards police has stirred up sorely needed discussions. There is much talk of late about the need for change and a call for more love in our society. We should cherish this time before this sad story’s lifespan expires and the normally programmed political puppet show resumes. So what does this have to do with our geodesic dome project?
Our open source project is not simply a way to build an efficient home and food production system. The motivation for our continued development is the realization that most problems on our planet are rooted in exploitation. We believe the beginning of change happens by allowing humans a means to live without government dependency – or by selling their soul. The harnessing of our collective human energy by banking cartels and callous corporations has made a small group extremely powerful. The masses are “educated” in the ways that numbers and words control their destiny. Much of the semblance of human authenticity and connection is mostly buried deep and ignored as unrealistic in an unjust world.
There is an unspoken script that we collectively share and follow. Whether by direct structuring and enforcement, or by our daily participation – we all support the same story. Many don’t agree with the way things are, but nearly all contribute by necessity. By default we all are responsible for our current state. The constant changes in politicians does nothing to change our course. The escalating unrest and economic hardships will continue until there are real changes in our daily dialogue and actions. Blaming the police or the protestors is useless.
As Noam Chomsky succinctly states, the people truly have the power, but give it up “by opinion.” Through programming and propaganda we submit to supporting a failed system. The violence and unrest we see should not be allowed to become the new normal. Going about with business as usual is like planning a party on the sinking Titanic. It is not enough to use the same excuses and language of irresponsibility and foregone power. We have the technology and ability to communicate like no other time before. There is an inherent responsibility we also inherit with these powerful new tools.
Our advancing technology is increasingly being implemented towards attaining greater control. We wish for the tools of today to be used towards real change, not for increasing the complexity and profits of the current slave system. So long as we fail to take responsibility for our communities, we will have police to control us. The real police are naturally the community of fathers, mothers, uncles, aunts, grandparents, neighbors and friends. The introduction of police forces in a society represents a community that has lost its foundation. Responsibility for one’s community has been forfeited, and with it – much of our freedom. If we want real change, we must all be the police.
We are planning dome builds at various sites where water, inexpensive land, and permissive building regulations all meet. However, these areas are typically outside where most people live and work. These locations are often off grid and are an average of an hour traveling distance from major metropolitan hubs. Most folks live within the grid, but would like to build a geodesic dome for an aquaponic garden, a meditation area, storage, tool shop, play house, or extra room for you name it. To fill this need we are designing a 12 foot diameter portable dome kit that is small enough to build without permits in most areas, but big enough to do a whole lot.
We found many like the idea of a self sustainable dome home, but are not able or ready to make the plunge into living off grid anytime soon. So, we decided to create a small portable dome design to introduce folks to the ease, beauty, and functionality of a dome building. The process is as educational as it is useful. Putting together a smaller version of the dome home is a great way to get started on your path to self sufficiency.
The frame is steel tubing which can be covered with Insulated magnetic wood triangles that have roofing or windows. These are the same design as used on the larger dome homes. This creates an insulated and quiet space that could accommodate many uses such as a play area, music room, cabana etc. Panels are easily customizable to provide windows where you want them. Alternately the dome could be covered with polycarbonate panels, ETFE, woven poly, Tyvek, and other creative covering materials and methods. There are a variety of uses such as a greenhouse, jacuzzi room, sun room or whatever your kick is.
Building an accessory building as a dome structure is not only a much nicer sight then a tool shed, it is structurally superior and portable too. The ease of construction could inspire some to go big and eventually build their very own geodesic dome home. Our larger projects include water capture systems, compostable toilets, air exchange temperature control, and solar power systems. You may want to learn more about these systems and living in a dome once you experience the feeling of going round. Some may eventually decide to get out of the box and off the grid.
We plan to have our first models ready by the end of summer. We will be providing the process and plans online as an open source venture to persuade any and all into the realm of geodesic dome building. More importantly, we hope that these domes will spread and be seen as a symbol of what is to come. Experiencing a new way of building self sustainable sensible homes is the beginning of a future where we provide for all of our common needs and solve our biggest problems without the complicated crumbling system currently in place.
