Example of an Earthship Tirewall

Earthship Tire Wall Withstands Chilean Earthquake 6/7 on Richter

This message from an Earthship Chilean survivor just plucked from Earthsip’s latest newsletter: from Earthship Chile: I’m from Chile two weeks ago we had an earthquake of 6/7 richter, our tire wall stand without problems and our wall is just tires no concrete on it … enough evidence for me that Earthships are earthquake-proof .
Sorry about my English not mi native language hope you understand

Welcome to America - Now The Greatest Fascist Power in The World

Free from corporate fascism

Today I will spend ten minutes visualizing the world I would like to live in. Free from corporate fascism and procrustean socialists. Go ahead and look that one up if you need to.

pro·crus·te·an/prōəˈkrəstēən/

Adjective:
(esp. of a framework or system) Enforcing uniformity or conformity without regard to natural variation or individuality.

We don’t need procrustean socialism any more than we need corporate fascism. They are simply two sides of the same coin. What we need to do is to lighten up a little. Have some fun occasionally and then all go and sit on the railway tracks like Gandhi. Occupy the CBD with LOVE bombs of floral dissent. What’s the modern day equivalent of railway tracks? D’oh! Railway tracks!!! AND . . .Freeways.  Careful if you sit down on a Freeway. I guess you would need a fleet of pink cadillacs to start things off by stopping on the . . . .FREEWAY OF LOVE. Occupy. Resist. Kick out the jams. Take it to the streets. Change the system now mother f&%#rs.

“This is not your grandfather’s capitalism”

Make the world Free from corporate fascism

Today I Will Hug a Few Trees

Today I will hug a few trees . . . and send extra happy greetings to the Space People in the cloud above the backyard pool in which stands  . . .both erect and pregnant . . . the sword of The Lady OF the Lake.

I worry about the chlorine though. How’s that lady doing down there I wonder? Maybe i should take her some tea and biscuits? And what happens to tea and biscuits when you submerge them in a swimming pool?  I am sure you can begin to appreciate some of the logistical problems involved in having The Lady of The Lake in your swimming pool. Yes, it’s tough. Should I ask for your guilt? Your shame?  NO! Just keep dancing dangerously close to the water, dance to the Samba Rhythms – boom boom boom-boom-boom. We just might get a chance to grab that sword. Anyone can do it. But first (now don’t laugh) you will have to walk on the water. I know, I know. There’s no faking this of course. We have cameras set up all over the place so the water walker(s) will be filmed. THEN . . .you need to get the sword. But, good news! It’s not nearly as hard as it sounds. Come on over for the party and we will share delicious secrets. This is after all The Age of The Woolworths Buddha. Oh God I think I’ve done it again. Call my frickin agent! And what about those space people? Don’t worry! They know what to do. Note to self: Today I Will Hug a Few Trees





Living in The Living Cosmos

A Form of Coherent Consciousness?

The Game of Life is Living

It’s a funny old life. We ask ourselves, and every Guru in the business of spiritual evolution wants us to ask: Why are we here? What is the purpose of life? Where are we going? In answer to that last question Dr Quantum suggests: Look Up. See those little shiny twinkly things overhead? It seems as if you may be headed there. It is possible you will become a star one day. In time a galaxy. Perhaps once you get off your training wheels eventually you too can become a universe. Too far in the future? Don’t want to get ahead of yourself? Man! Get your name on the list. Are you down with that? I’m down wid it man! I put my name down for becoming a universe. Yeah I just signed up last week. But I gotta warn you the training program is hell. Or is it Heaven? Hmmm . . . let me see. Yep, the game of life is living.

Hmm so this must be the game of life. And what is the Game of Life then? But Living! Not winnng, mind you, That is different. That’s the game of competing. And the only rule of the Game of Life is this. There MUST be a game. And if there isn’t one playing then chances are you will invent one. Who was it that said man is a meaning making machine? Have you ever noticed that a friend, relative or acquaintance may have a whole story going on in their imagination that is just so NOT the story you had been telling yourself and others?  Another way of saying this is that we like to play . . .no we MUST play. Have you noticed? It’s the only thing you really don’t get to have much choice in. There MUST be a game and the game of life is living.

Of course this points up the fact that children are already well tuned in to the purpose and journey of life. For wherever you put them they will invent some game. Which may lead us to an overwhelming conclusion. The purpose of life is to have fun. So if the game of life is living and the purpose of the game is to have fun it must be obvious by now to all but the most dopey dumb and thick people that the current winners are those people who are now practicing meditation, doing Yoga. Learning to cook holistic and macro foods, starting eco villages, studying Ayurveda, building Earthships etc. These are the fools who are in the process of stepping of the edge of a cliff into the abyss of nothingness and mysteriously flying with wings of angels. Meanwhile the logical blockheads of reason stand on the edge of that cliff complaining. You can’t fly! It’s impossible, or so they say. Right now these blockheads look a lot like the Friends of Science in Medicine who are trying to have the teaching of natural therapies taken out of universities. Boy do these squares ever not know how to have fun. They are so determined to invest in dying when the game of life is living.





Are Earthships SAFE?

The MOST Sustainable Housing Design?

SAFE Sustainable Autonomy For Everyone

I bought the T-Shirt it says SAFE Sustainable Autonomy For Everyone. The fancy more colourful green one was not available in my size. The only XL sizes were the SAFE Sustainable Autonomy For Everyone shirts. We’re talking Black and White.  I decided to grab whatever I could rather than go home empty handed after meeting with the great man . Maybe I will have the shirt framed and show it to my grandchildren. Now kids . . .this is the T-Shirt from the man who saved the world. And this is a picture of him drinking my brand of . . . yes he sipped a premium Aussie, errr Tasmanian . . . actually . . .there is no other way of saying this . . .beer. Oh yes. Michael Reynolds did not step down from the podium robed in white to lead us all in a class of Hatha Yoga and chanting of Mantram. Nothing quite so transcendental. Nope. He drank beer. One of my favourite brands. So there it is. Well they are called EARTHships. And they are SAFE Sustainable Autonomy For everyone.

It’s a fascinating thing this matter of a great person’s habits. In the battle for the planet known as World War 2, the two opposing leaders Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler demonstrated this point to a fault. Churchill drank like a fish, smoked strong cigars almost constantly and was know to enjoy a good tuck in to a manly side of beef, lamb or pork. Hitler on the other hand was a tea-totalling vegetarian. Oh but that’s different I hear you say. Is it? Well the inventor of Earthships invented this slogan to describe his sustainable housing design. SAFE Sustainable Autonomy For Everyone.

Let’s look at that. Sustainable: This simply means that Earthships would not threaten our common future, or the ability of future generations to enjoy an abundant fulfilling life on Planet Earth. Autonomy: This means that an Earthship allows you to go off-grid. No need to suck coal fired electricity. No need to draw water from the government – or even worse the corporate owned – water supply. You don’t need to pump your sewage into the government – or corporate – sewage system and possibly into the river lake or ocean. And last but certainly not least you can grow much of your basic food needs in your home. Wonder of wonders. Well that’s the heavy hand of government, corporations not to mention supermakets taken care of. For Everyone: Everyone can live in an Earthship. Indeed they are ideally suited for both developing world and can even be tailored to big cities. There are plans to put one into New York City. Yes you can use the design concept for multi story buldings. SAFE Sustainable Autonomy For Everyone

Earthship Inventor Captures Sustainable Audience

Michael Reynolds - Legend of Sustainable Design

Earthships are coming

Michael Reynolds the legendary Earthship inventor, designer and architectural change agent extraordinaire has been presenting in Australia. It was a joyous experience to meet the legend in person and witness his presentation on EarthShips at the Maleny RSL on the weekend. EarthShips have been something of a Quantumized fascination for Yours Truly since sometime in the late 20th Century.  Online research on leading edge sustainable building design resulted in stumbling upon the Earthships warming up on the runway  getting ready for take off. It seems they have certainly been hurtling down the tarmac since then and can now be seen flying about the skies of Australia, USA, France, Mexico, Italy, Germany, Scotland and the list goes on.  Earthships are coming

A colleague recently quipped “well he’s not Corbusier”. I must say I could only agree. Correct, he’s not Corbusier . . .because he’s Michael Reynolds! True he doesn’t wear natty suits and Bow Ties. Michael Reynolds is not a Prada Spectacles wearing hipster of Urban Cool architectural Nouvea Minimalism in sleek. He’s much, much more than that. Apologies to all you Prada wearing Hipsters. I am sure you are all very nice people. No offence. Truly so.  But let’s get it straight. A mane of unkempt grey hair, stubbly beard, rugged jeans and unimposing personal style has absolutely zero bearing on what’s going on with a person on the inside. Earthships are coming

Michael Reynolds is right up there with the greatest architects of all time. In Dr Quantum’s book he is more relevant than Le Corbusier, as much a visionary as Frank Lloyd Wright, and every bit the urban hero as Denise Scott Brown.  To understand something of the importance of his contribution and the truly evolutionary nature of his form – Biotechture, there will be more about Earthships here soon. Dr Quantum is having an Earthships moment. In fact we are going to make this an Earthships Decade and plans are underway for an Earthships Century.  Now if you like the idea of radical Sustainable building you’re going to love this instant video Title: Grandma Builds an Earthship for $1.99 USD > click here.  You can see the documentary The Garbage Warrior from Amazon available at Step With Life > click here – or purchase his books about EarthShips and Biotechture at great prices > click here. Check it out. Earthships are coming

Dr Quantum has posted a number of times on the topic of EarthShips

Earthships Underpants and The Garbage Warrior. and

Earthships Dreaming – Confessions of a Technoyourt Wannabe to name just two previous posts on these pages. Earthships are coming





Attempt to Control World Food Supply

22 08 2011

If Monsanto’s attempt to take over the world food supply with Genetically Modified Freak Organisms were a story in a comic, you would think it was utterly fantastic. Well apparently truth is strange than fiction. Check this out. Whatever you might think of Alex Jones – he’s right on the button with this interview. The story is all revealed in the documentary Food Inc. Here’s the very short version. Depressing but important
