Dream Tank (think tank) for the future of the human race

Well, I think all those that attended this month's Moot will agree that we had a most enjoyable and thought provoking time with Bill and his ideas for building a better everything.

For more information and to begin to contribute to the Dream Tank please take a look at his Facebook group right here.

Thank you to everyone who attended and for all those that contributed to the discussion

Finally, a wee poem from one of my favourite modern poets...

The Opening of Eyes

That day I saw beneath dark clouds
the passing light over the water
and I heard the voice of the world speak out,
I knew then, as I had before
life is no passing memory of what has been
nor the remaining pages in a great book
waiting to be read.

It is the opening of eyes long closed.
It is the vision of far off things
seen for the silence they hold.
It is the heart after years
of secret conversing
speaking out loud in the clear air.

It is Moses in the desert
fallen to his knees before the lit bush.
It is the man throwing away his shoes
as if to enter heaven
and finding himself astonished,
opened at last,
fallen in love with solid ground.

September' Moot - A Calling to the Project

Sunday the 6th September at 3pm - this coming weekend! - is the next moot. And we're delighted to tell you that we're being joined by Bill who will share his ideas with us.

I'm pretty sure he'll delve into his ideas of cosmology, compassion, anarchy, warehouses in the brain, about levels of consciousness, and about what this means for us in our everyday 3d reality. At the very least he'll be sharing with us his ideas for a project, with an aim of playing the game, "lets make life better for mankind." With a focus on dreaming and imagination, over the usual tool of logic, Bill will present his core ideas and then open up the Moot for discussion and sharing of... whatever pops up.

I've included a picture of this quite spectacular cauliflower - I found Bill eating one of these amazing fellas last week at the Spirit Camp. Talking of which, the Spirit Camp was another great success full of great moments. Thanks Pan & Janis for doing the thing yet again.
