If I were to build a space colony or space habitat I would want it to be a place where people can continue to be free. All science fiction and renderings of moon colonies seem so restrictive and claustrophobic. I would want a space colony with a built in atmosphere just like the Earth. People could move freely, and in space every direction would...

R. Buckminister Fuller Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth The important concept mention in the Manual which we pay no attention to is 'synergy.' Coined by Fuller, synergy means we can not understand the whole by understanding it's parts. Earth came with lots of room for error to allow for her ignorant inhabitants to evolve. As we've...

We have an urge to build. Nature is treated as a side-order, becoming an attraction and a marketing tool.

Why should nature be reduced to symbolism, poetics and abstraction...

I wouldn't want much to change - maybe that's depressing or unimaginative or boring but it's the truth. What I admire most about nature is its resilience, no matter how hard we abuse it, it always bounces back, amazingly and surprisingly (although some would argue that at this moment it may be reaching its physical limits). After it's...

what happens with the perception of time when we have no atmosphere in space? do we adopt a new calender? do we let go of our earthly perception of time itself? what is our basis for time in relation to in space when the earth no longer exists? how can people live with no night or day? what happens to our social constructions of our daily...

Our daily forecast right here. What we tend to forget is the System, and how it is placed and functioning perfectly to allow for human life (humans in our current state of evolution).

Yes, it's cheesy, but this theme park accomplished a lot and brought a world of information to a very diverse audience. Even though it's not really Walt Disney's exact plan of what it was supposed to be, it still is mighty ambitious and imaginative. EPCOT aka Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow

It's kind of amazing how we can transfer energy to power something. Think of all the people dancing or in spinning class wasting all that energy. Don't you think America would be thinner if they had to ride a bike in order to watch their television?
