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

You can see a 1 & half minute video on Earthships New Solutions Below. More great Earthship vids will appear in the window when this vid is over!!! check it out – It’s huge fun. You can subscribe to Earthships Biotechture newsletter here  . . .





Five Bizarre Secrets About Karl Marx

24 03 2012

Karl - The Most Famous Marx Brother

Capitalism for Dummies

Bizarre Marx secret No’1 Karl Marx was the president of the Beatles fan-club and YET he died in 1883. There is only one explanation for this: Time travel. Marx reckoned capitalism was fatally flawed. He predicted that due to the exploitation of the workers by the Capitalist class – i.e.those who own all the factories and machines – A.K.A. the means of production . . .that the workers would rise up and have a revolution, AKA the Revolution of The Proletariat. Guy was waaaay ahead of his time. It would be like standing up today and claiming there is a FREE energy device that you could practically make in your back yard or basement, that would by-pass the need for burning fossil fuels etc. Most people wouldn’t believe you. And then if you confidently predicted that people and companies who had bought up the patents and suppressed the technology for such free energy devices would be tried and found guilty of crimes against humanity . . .in the not too distant future . . .that would be time travel. So hey?! . . .trust the Quantum Flux Marx was a big Beatles fan. It was Capitalism for Dummies

Bizarre Marx secret No’2: Marx liked dressing up in Women’s clothing. He would play dress-ups and had a hit drag act in Paris in 1842. But what he was REALLY doing was promoting a Revolution of The Proletariat.  According to the Marxist theory such a revolution would take back the capital used to make stuff and put it in the hands the workers. This Marx said would be a Socialist Society. Marx said the eternal social conflict is a class war. This was on the evolutionary road to a classless society of peace love and mung beans which Marx described as Communism. What he didn’t realize was that the real class war would be between young working class boys & girls queueing up outside clubs and door bouncers from the Pacific Islands whose homes were about to be flooded by global warming due to the burning of fossil fuels. This highlighted the need for a science of complexity. In the future it would all be so clear. it’s Capitalism for Dummies

Bizarre Marx secret No’3: Marx was a deeply spiritual man.  But he pretended to be an Athiest. While promoting free love, free muesli and free money Marx had secretly founded the Pyramid Church for Rock & Roll and Jimi Hendrix incorporating video games the alphabet and whales. But what he said was Religion is poison. This is because he could see that as a socially constructed project religion was working hand in glove with the capitalists to keep the worker bees in a straight line. That worked well. Actually he used to have secret drinks with Jesus and the Buddha every Friday night. He would attend these drinks nights in full drag. Apart from being a pointy hatted wizard he was as gay as a maypole. Clearly it is Capitalism for Dummies

Bizarre Marx secret No’4: Marx was actually a visitor from another galaxy. He was a spaceman. He was also Jewish. Does this mean there are Jewish people on other planets? We’re not getting into the whole Zionist thing here. People get very offended about all this stuff. No one is quite sure how this works in fact. But . . .yep he was a little green man alright. Space people know all about Capitalism for Dummies

Bizarre Mark Secret No’5: Marx said that having ideas was useless and what mattered was action. This statement spurred on Lennin in Russia (October Revolution 1917) and Mao Tse Tung in China to form the pure classless Communist utopia by 1949. Interestingly. The only problem with this ideas are useless riff is that all he ever did was write books, articles and movie scripts for Hollywood. The actual truth is there is nothing as powerful as a Lime Flavoured Revolution whose time has come. The idea comes FIRST. Then people actually start doing stuff. Idea FIRST. Action SECOND. Idea FIRST. Action SECOND. Idea FIRST Action SECOND. Comprendez? Yes it’s Capitalism for Dummies





Comrade Lenin Licked a Lime Splice

22 03 2012

Lenin on his way to the shops for a Lime Splice

I Scream You Scream We Scream for Ice Cream

It is a well known fact among historians that Comrade Lenin liked to lick the Lime Splice. But they forgot to mention it. What historians always seem to carp on about were his political carryings on. Oh Hello! Just give us the facts. Here’s a guy who was a hard core ice cream eatin’ fool. And of course his absolute all time fave the Lime Splice. Let’s just say that Lenin was a big ice cream eater.

Full name: Vladimir Ilyich Lenin – spearheaded the October Revolution in Russia in 1917 as leader of the Bolsheviks. And it was all about ice cream for eveyone. Don’t ever let anyone tell you any different. Lenin was reputed to be a good talker when he wasn’t shovelling it down. You don’t see it in most pictures but he was quite rotund. Whilst not much of a head for politics, he was smart enough to bring in experts from the good old USA and Germany to do most of his thinking for him. A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do and in Lenin’s case it was to tongue tickle a tub. Caress the cool cream. Lick the last of the lime gelato and manhandle the mango passionfruit ripple.

He got the whole political thing from his childhood friend Karl Marx. They did a boyhood paper run in inner city London – working class Cockney Islington – and barracked for Arsenal football team.  Those were the days. Ar-Se-Naaal.

Abducted by a UFO at the age of 12 both boys returned with supernatural powers, glowing green eyes and love of ice-cream. Using the technique of time travel they also formed a hit ’80s pop band called Spandau Ballet – see video below. And so the future of the world was changed forever. It doesn’t take much to change the course of history. Apparently glowing green eyes will do it every time. I Scream You Scream We Scream for Ice Cream

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

Earth Ships, Underpants and The Garbage Warrior

Michael Reynolds Earth Ships: The Garbage Warrior

Earth Ships are a revolution in sustainable housing; it is a remarkable sustainable building concept that was forged in the mind and in the creative architectural play pen of a remarkable man, one Michael Reynolds AKA The Garbage Warrior. We do have him to thank for giving birth to something which has both enormous creative and design appeal AND is a hugely practical solution to a very real problem.  That practical breakthrough is: Sustainable, affordable housing which can be aesthetically appealing. In addition there is the roundness factor. Earth Ships have round bits in them and allow for a fair bit of organic bumpiness without falling into the abyss of abysmally under-developed.

EARTHSHIP BOOKS & DVDS ON STEP WITH LIFE  CLICK HERE

Dr Quantum has been getting much feedback and interest in a subject that was touched on briefly in a recent blog: EarthShip Dreaming – Confessions of a Techno-Yurt Wannabe. So i thought it might be of interest to both regular readers and to the many who visit these pages from all over the world via the amazing power of search engines (a term that didn’t exist in the general vocabulary 20 years ago). It seems that EarthShips are taking off, powered by the Quantum Search Engine Warp Drive – think about it.

There are half a dozen online resource links provided at the bottom of this post. Yes folks it’s an Earthship Quantum Search Engine Warpdrive for modern lovers.

TO learn more about Earthships there are plenty of on-line resources. One thing that Dr Quantum highly recommends is a DVD movie about Michael Reynolds and his journey to have the Earthship building concept and output accepted by the State Legislature of New Mexico USA. The movie DVD is called The Garbage Warrior and is both informative and enormously entertaining. You will learn a lot about the man and his building passion. He doesn’t call it architecture by the way he prefers the term Biotechture.

For Michael Reynolds the journey has also included what can only be described as a remarkable contribution to empowering people in developing countries to rebuild after natural disasters like the 2004 Asian Tsunami. The guy is a genuine global Eco Hero. Bards and wandering minstrels  will be singing songs about him in a thousand years.  You’ll see.

One of the things I really love about Earthships and Micheal Reynolds‘ concept is that it has now been clearly demonstrated that you can build your own affordable, sustainable housing solution out of recycled materials (AKA Garbage). Once built, Earthships have the potential for a high sale and re-sale value. This all depends on how nice it looks and how well built it was in the first place.  Just like other more conventional houses. The added benefit is that Earthships can be completely off-grid. Yes folks it’s true. As sad as it makes Dr Quantum to admit it Earthships demonstrate that you don’t need an army of overpaid, overly controlling, beaureaucratic sociopaths telling you what do do about your Water, Electricity, Sewage and what colour underpants to wear. I ring up my local council every day and ask them. The conversation goes like this,

Dr Quantum: Hello is this the council?

Operator: Yes how may we be of service today?

Dr Quantum: Can you put me through to the Underware Colour co-ordination reporting line please?

Operator: Putting you through

I swear to the New Age God(dess) of truth liberty and rainbow coloured toenails, that is exactly what happens . . .every day.

The Earth Healing Project for Swingers

16 04 2011

The Earth Healing Project - Image & Concept by Desiree Glanville

What the World Needs now is . . . The Earth Healing Project. Many focii (that’s the plural of focus just in case . . .) for Quantum Healing are emerging into consciousness right about now on the planet. If you haven’t noticed this emergence happening lately then it’s probably a good idea you just get started. Here’s the latest new, new thing for Planetary Healing. It is good. (There’s a scientific statement for you)

The Earth Healing Project is brought to you by that amazing Digital artist Desiree Walstra. As part of her beautiful giving she is offering the image above for FREE download from her Red Bubble site – link available in the first sentence of this blog above. Any way you wish to use the image is OK – as long as you don’t alter the image itself. From her site you can download and hang it on your wall, use it as screen saver etc & so forth. As well as doing all of these things Dr Quantum is going to have it made into a T-Shirt at one of those single and short-run T-Shirt places that will print a one-off image for you. Of course I will create a caption “The Earth Healing Project by Desiree Walstra”

Daisy’s recipe for Earth Healing using the image is to simply find a friend or three (or three hundred, or . . .) and use the image with this distributed group to meditate, focus and program for Earth Healing. (you can read about it on her site here) If there is any doubt whatsoever in your mind about the effectiveness and the power of using such quantum techniques for creating a shift in consciousness, in the world, in yourself – as a healing tool then you may wish to check out the amazing story of Ho’oponopono for example. The fact is there are many such examples. Yes I am the anit-skeptic particle today. I have given up sketicism in favour of complaining. This week I am complaining about skeptics.

The message is now very clear for all who have had their radar on these past couple of thousand years – culminating in the times in which we live. You are a living centre of miraculous power and possibility. All you have to do to activate this power is to go to Woolworths and purchase you Instant Personal Power Pak for just $9.99 and hey presto! You can get started right away. I’m kidding about Woolworths . . .Just want to make sure you’re paying attention.

The thing is this – The Earth Healing project, like your own miraculous creativity just runs on water and air. I say this because if you don’t drink water and if you stop breathing . . .soon you will die. You can survive without food for much, much longer. So go for it. Change the world from the comfort of your own home. And hey . . .get your friends involved. Don’t just keep the Earth Healing Project’s Quantum Miraculousness to yourself. Share it round and don’t be shy. Light a candle, invite the Spirit and heal the world. Be the change. You know you want to do it.

Daisy tells me in one of our recent communications that it’s basically the same as something I wrote recently. About updating Adam Smith’s idea of the invisible hand. Which is:

  1. LOVE is the answer
  2. FEAR is what makes domination strategies seem like a good idea
  3. A path with no heart can only lead to disaster
  4. The miraculous solutions to our seemingly insoluble problems are just beyond our fingertips and as such we may have to reach for them
  5. Respect for all of LIFE includes resepct for plants, animals, people and things, for metaphysically there is only YOU, the ONE, and you want to learn how to love yourslef; deeply, genuinely, authentically and joyously
  6. Nothing matters so you had better start caring for LIFE or pretty soon YOU wont matter
  7. Life really is an illusion – all of it. Which illusion do you now choose to make real throught the power of your transformative quantum miraculousness?
  8. It may be the karma of the starving millions to be starving, but it’s your karma to know about them . . .how do you wish to respond?
  9. It is essential to have a positive vision if you want to be positively powerful and change the world for the better
  10. What goes around comes around
  11. You are the invisible hand made flesh. DO SOMETHING
