    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction

    How far we can go from now? Which are the implications of the downgrade of life?

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2010/may/20/craig-venter-synthetic-life-form

    Craig Venter team has just opened an immense new gate for an universe that we have no idea how to behave, the ethical and practical implications are probably the most significants since human beings started to have conscious of themselves.

    I dare to say that the universe has changed today.

    "The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent, but if we can come to terms with this indifference, then our existence as a species can have genuine meaning. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light."
    Stanley Kubrick

    That is a quite risky post since this is my third one and I don't speak English as my first language.

    There is a writer/philosopher that some of you may be familiar with named John N. Gray. He is pretty much a provocateur, however he is on the same time a great thinker and have some interesting approach about the humankind behaviour.

    One of his books (my favourite of his books) is called Straw Dogs: Thoughts on Humans and Other Animals and has a very pessimist view of humankind for many, however I do think he has got a very clear view what life is about and how our society is organised nowadays, which make this book a very interesting reading for many of us.

    It is a bit nihilist, which sometimes is good to put things in perspective.

    Documenting Graphic Language
    I'm going to post on this space a series of graphic design work that I think is relevant to be documented. I started with Lou Dorfsman's work.

    The idea is post relevant images that exemplify how the terrestrials communicate apart from vocal language.

    Documenting Graphic Language No.1 - Lou Dorfsman

    "Creativity is essentially a lonely art. An even lonelier struggle. To some a blessing. To others a curse. It is in reality the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul an idea"
