It will be easier getting people involved, if you have something tangible to show of the SUN. Build it and they will come. It is also true however, you could own the land, build it out for your needs, build the economic foundations, then buy land to donate...

As for the future of SUN, we might make the Forum more prominent on the front page. It takes like three links to get to the prospectus. There are a lot of bones on the front page, little meat. Perhaps Haniel will get involved again in the tech? LD, what about an article on your thinking about the land, what to do with it?

LD,

I don't think you have anything to fear from the IRS, as long as the majority of revenue stays with the Non-profit, and there is a clear dilineation between your money and the foundation money. But then the point of that money cannot be more land, for the benefit of your business alone. Maybe you buy the land, donate it to SUN, rent 1/4 of it, rent other 3/4 to similar entreprenuers?

One thing I have noticed is there is no way to get back to SUN site proper.

Will try to be around more.

SUN Newz & Current Events / Re: What to call this category?
« on: June 02, 2014, 12:40:47 PM »
I am a waterbearer in service to the earth (mother/feminine) and sun (father/masculine), increasingly in alignment with the changing of an Aeon. Like an energetic bridge between the fire of the sun and the water of the earth.

Go ahead and use whatever designation you like. A key here is dissensus. What monkers that stick will stick.

Everything Under the Sun / Re: Magic
« on: June 02, 2014, 12:32:13 PM »
What IS magic?

If we take the physicists at their word, most of what we see as shape and form is empty space. We are surrounded by void, and even what we recognize as matter is mostly empty space. Which is not nothing; it's laden with hidden characteristics as real as all the stuff in our everyday lives. It can bend; space can twist, and it can ripple; so real that empty space itself helps shape everything in the world around us and forms the very fabric of the cosmos. We are not conscious of it in the same way
fish are probably not conscious of water either... even the fundamantal element of matter, the atom, the basic ingredient in all of us and everything else we see in the world around us, is composed of almost entirely empty space and a handful of electrical charges.

Given that, who is to say the psyche cannot influence space, matter, or time? When people scoff, I tend to recall those nineteenth century blowhards who solemnly decreed that "everything worth being invented by man has now been invented."

I remain convinced that there are unseen worlds awaiting discovery.

Magic is taking from the void and making it material, in part. Those physicists are making magic too, in their way. It is also a magic spell that holds people dependent upon and expecting eternality from the current paradigm.

Nature is anarchic. It is also very much alive; from the perspective from the true magician (not the slight of hand kind), ALL matter is imbued with the divine, and the matter that we know as the earth, this "rock" so many are so desirous of getting off of, this "devils' playground," is in fact desirous of a relationship with, and seeks to communicate with you. It is no easy thing however, for those of us raised in the materialist perspective, this "devils abode" or "dead material realm", to either act anarchically or even begin to flow with the rhythms of the anarchically ordered natural systems all life inhabits.

A root of the "evil" that is growth for the sake of growth/eternal material growth paradigm, is that it orders our consciousness logically, analytically, like a grid. That is not to say that consciousness should be all about magic, that logic is bad, but that there has to be something like balance.

There is no reason at all Humanity cannot retain the best of what a material perspective has opened us up to, but that if there is ever to be anything like balance on planet earth with humans, that we have to open up to a magical/anarchically ordered natural order.

In other words, act out of your own convictions, your own sense of what you feel called to do, embrace the synchronicities, the deja vu, the coincidences, and cultivate it more. Trust yourself. Be open.

Everything Under the Sun / Re: Staying Positive
« on: June 02, 2014, 12:14:38 PM »
I'm sending this out particularly to WHD, LD, and GM, but it might apply to the rest of us as well.

The convocation has now been over for a few weeks. I am noticing one particular phenomenon, and that is an absence of writing about the event on the part of the younger attendees. I know that all of you have busy lives, and that this is the height of the gardening season, so maybe that's most of it.

But I'm worried that, having made this goal of coming together and achieved it now, that the exaltation of the birth of our collaboration has worn off, and that post-partum depression has set in. I know that it's disappointing that we haven't figured out the way forward from here very well, and that the hopes and dreams that led to the convo might
seem like pipe dreams now, in the harsh light of difficult reality.

Daily living isn't easy, and it might be that it seems futile to hope and dream for a better way of living. And now that you've met each other and me, it might seem like those of us in the older generation might be an unlikely group to ever get our shit together or make any magic happen. And this is no doubt true.

However, each of us, in his or her own way, is doing the best we can to figure out a plan. As JMG said in his blog yesterday, those who have come to awareness, and who are taking rational steps to make a future, are the seedbearers for the human race.

Please be patient. Please keep your hopes, dreams and aspirations alive and cooking. As someone once said, "perseverance furthers". Sometimes all you can do is dream what you want to see  and what you want to be. But please don't discount the power of those dreams. They are a powerful force for good in the world.

So like a month or more after you posted this, Eddie, I am finally showing up to comment.

Seedbearers indeed. I'm going to blame this one on RE.  8) He hasn't sent me hardcopy of those 750 pics I took of your place. I can't write a proper blog post without Pics! LOL.

Seriously, I've also been in the process of learning how to stay positive about all this. Too much immersion in doom was too hard on my spirit and was making me too dark. Anyway, I'm working it out. More on that to come.

Shelter / Re: Dome Promotion
« on: June 02, 2014, 12:05:35 PM »
What I'm finding completely odd is the negativity the dome idea is getting everywhere I see it spreading.

It's not just the Trolls on the Diner determined to try and discourage any sort of sustainable response, even the NBLers, who claim they want to live out life in a minimal-impact hospice, are vehemently opposed to any sort of living arrangement that would reduce energy use.  If a building does not use 21st century level of energy consumption, it's a"coffin" in their eyes.

I have a feeling we won't find many people within the "doom" community to adopt this living arrangement, they are more concerned with bankster bonuses than the survival of their grandchildren. 

I'll work on some promotional ideas that emphasize the defensive nature of the domes and see if we can get traction with the survivalist, anti-government types who are paranoid about another Waco or Ruby Ridge, and hopefully let the idea grow outwards from there.

Domes, according to the typical lot arrangement of urban development, mean less living space, and less living space for the vast majority of Americans, translates into "reduced standard of living." Perhaps there can be some growth of the idea in the Survival, Liberty, and Patriot movements, but then, that would go a long way in adding a negative impression, for the rest of America.

The development of this should be about housing for the poor and elderly, and the disabled. But then, we all know, that is who gets tossed to the curb, when resources are harder to come by.

Perhaps what you need to do is buy cheap lots in a few dozen small Tornado Alley towns. Then if a big one comes and wipes out everything but your dome, people will begin to understand. But then, where do the resources come, to build those domes.

That seems to be the crux of all creative attempts to address resource constraints. The constrained resources seem to be flowing uphill at a greater and greater speed. We need a flood in the other direction.
