THE POTENTIAL WHAT IF TRANSITIONAL DEVELOPMENT

... of an almost abandoned south west facing slope in Swindon, England in response to the Transition Towns initiative of Rob Hopkins, in the context of the fact that OUR DNA is made of the same DNA as the tree ... the tree breathes what we exhale ... when the tree exhales we need what the tree exhales ... so we have common destiny with the tree ... as it communicates with other trees beneath our feet ...



FROM THIS, looking west in the autumn of 2005 - top terrace fruit trees to the north, Scottish raspberries and asparagus - thinking about all things organic, no-dig systems, permaculture, forest-gardening etc.

ALL IS IN NATURE • WE ARE A CIRCUMSTANCE of NATURE

   THIS STATEMENT from Leonardo da Vinci, was one which he discussed

   all of his life with his best friend Niccolò Machiavelli, who no doubt as a result,

    accordingly wrote the following in his epic The Prince



   ”There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of

    success, nor more dangerous to handle than to initiate a new order

    of things. For the reformer has enemies in all who profit by the old

    order, and only luke-warm defenders in all those who would profit

    by the new order. This quality of lukewarmness arises partly…

7 things that affect your vibration frequency ...

from the point of view of quantum physics.


.

Vibration in quantum physics means everything is energy. We are vibrant beings on certain frequencies. Every vibration is equivalent to a feeling and in the world "Vibrational", there are only two species of vibrations, positive and negative. Any feeling makes you broadcast a vibration that can be positive or negative.
.
1ST - * thoughts *
Every thought emits a frequency to the universe and this frequency goes back to origin, so in the case, if you have negative thoughts, discouragement, sadness, anger, fear, all this comes back to you. This is why it is so important that you take care of the quality of your thoughts and learn how to cultivate more positive thoughts.

THE LANDSCAPE OF DESIGN TODAY

  From DESIGNERS SATURDAY to DESIGN as A MASS OCCUPATION ?

 

  Review: The Language of Things by Deyan Sudjic

 Since every single thing we use has been designed, what is a

  'designer object'? wondered Martin Gayford back in October 2008

  Deyan Sudjic, the director of the Design Museum is, it seems, close to

  being fed up with things. 'In my own life,' he confesses early on in this

  brilliant but inconclusive essay, 'I have to acknowledge that I have been

BUCKY'S VISUAL LITERACY

Fuller's concern with fine-tuning communication, developing and using words that are consistent with scientific reality, is one facet of the role of language with respect to synergetics. Another deals with the difficulty of describing visual and structural patterns. Anyone who has tried to describe an object over the telephone is well aware of the problems involved; there seems to be a shortage of functional words. The temptation to use your hands is irresistible, despite the futility. This scarcity of linguistic aids is especially severe for non-cubical structures, which characterise most of nature. That a language of pattern and structure is not widely accessible indicates that humanity's understanding of such phenomena is similarly underdeveloped. We thus join forces with Fuller in an investigation of this neglected field, and in so doing we become more and more aware of the rich complexity of the order inherent in space. Along the way, we are introduced to some new terminology that includes the lesser-known language of geometry as well as some words invented by Fuller. More information—useful only, it is clear,…

VISION for 2020 ...

"WITHOUT leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose  

 the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, [IS]  

 a form of planning"

 MINDFULNESS is the art of paying attention to the

 details of the present moment without judgement.

 "Imagination alone can give us a vision of the future."
