Equinox

  • Better technology in Ottawa next year ... speakers that people can hear ... bigger screen ... Camera with a wide enough angle to show everyone.
  • Better planning in Portland next year ... send out invitations, plan the agenda ... you know, the basics
  • Brandon liked sharing one story from each end
  • Portland needs a camera with a wider angle
  • Brandon was frustrated by the technology, but really enjoyed the connection
  • Eric enjoyed the connection and thought it was the right amount
  • Brandon thinks the nori is awful stuff
  • Eat the nori like communion?

Portland EcoHouse Update

  • Developer only has one lot left out of 18 and the developer doesn't want to think about it right now; seems to be ready to just put up a spec house and see who buys it instead of putting up a custom house. Brandon is not letting it drop; is still trying to meet with the developer. Less hopeful than last week but still committed so we will see where it goes.

One-Page Plan threads

Why: Life is Precious

What: Expressing the Arete of Life (The Destiny is a big piece of that)

  • Vibrantly alive individuals, groups, communities, ecosystems and worlds
    • Diverse, self-expressed, empowered, free beings
    • Caring relationships that transcend our individual selves
    • Community that calls forth the best in us
    • Healthy sustainable ecosystems
      • supporting environmental restoration
      • releasing improved life forms on Earth (super trees; ocean trees)
    • Life radiating out from Earth to colonize the trillions of empty worlds that await
      • using Dyson trees to send life through our galaxy

How: Motivate, Instruct, and Support

1. Inspiration and motivation for the elephant

  • Exploring wonderfully cool things
  • Basking in artful expressions of wonder (Arete of life, cosmic religious feeling, etc)
  • Creating wonder evoking artifacts
  • Promoting books and videos that evoke wonder
  • Engaging in individual and collective rituals that infuse our lives with meaning

2. Instructions for the rider (Detailed, Practical Educational Resources)

  • Expositions from our world view
    • science
    • philosophy
    • religion (both SolSeed and general ideas about advanced religion/Kindred)
    • community
  • Recipes
    • How to perform various personal growth exercises (meditation etc)
    • How to do some scientific experiments yourself
    • How to host a particular kind of event
    • How to form a new seed community
    • How to make cool things

3. Systems and structures that support the rider/elephant

a. SolSeed Communities/Villages

  • Recruiting members
  • Living in close proximity
  • Building eco-friendly structures to live, work, and hold events in

b. Self-aware and Vibrant Kindred Movement

  • Holding festivals
  • Granting fellowships
  • Networking with kindred groups

c. The Religion Developed

  • Establishing Practices
  • Developing our canon

d. Founding businesses and non-profits

  • Creating organizations who make cool things.


Note: Cool things are things that strive toward theDestiny

Evaluation
