Beyond MONEYA RESOURCE based Economy
IT IS a system in which all goods and services are available without the use of money, credits, barter or any other system of debt or servitude. All resources become the common heritage of ALL the inhabitants, NOT just the few.
The premise upon which this system is based is that the Earth is abundant with plentiful resources and our practice of rationing resources through monetary methods is irrelevant and counter-productive to our survival.
1.    Economic Collapse (massive debts)
2.    Resource Depletion including Peak Oil
3.    Environmental Damage (climate change)

ROLL ON the Gaussian Curve where employment is LEVEL - production exponential - purchasing power is falling of a cliff - THE OLD ORDER SYSTEM MIND- SET STOPS




The same principles of Spiral Dynamics apply to a single person, an organization, or an entire society. Since it describes human nature in a universal sense rather than through personality types or racial, gender, and ethnic traits, the model provides a common language for grappling with both local and global problems.


It offers a unifying framework that makes

genuinely holistic thinking and actions possible.

I was up in the middle of the night the other night. couldn’t sleep, so decided to research spirals on the internet. I just found this, looking at your pictures. reading about logrhythmic (does that have any thing to do with music) and golden spirals and the golden ratio and such. Amazing how often spirals occur in nature. the cochlea of the inner ear is a spiral. neato.

This triple spiral - the spiral of life - is an ancient symbol of Celtic beliefs. The Celts believed that all life moved in eternal cycles, regenerating at each juncture. If you look at the sign carefully, you will notice that it is drawn in one single line without a beginning or an end, suggesting a continuous movement of time.

The Celts also believed that all important things came in three phases such as birth, death and rebirth; or mind, body, and spirit.

This symbol gives me an idea of our existence and the truth of our nature of being. We often try to perceive present occurrence from one point of view. Nevertheless, the present is a “hair’s breadth” of a moment, which was the future a moment ago and is already becoming the past.

In this world, we are all connected, interact and inter-depend on each other; no phenomenon can exist by itself. Our life exists within the cycle of cause and effect.

The important thing is to see things as a whole and to be present in each moment.

Then we can find harmony in our relationships in this world.

Bridget Riley is about the changes - progressive, sometimes abrupt, sometimes apparently disastrous - that can take place in a given situation.

The situation is presented in the simplest possible terms

            John Russell - Sunday Times - September 1963


One of the most distinctive characteristics of Bridget Riley's art is that it "insists" with such concentration that it changes sensory response into something else.

The experience which Riley offers is closely related to the expression of emotion or, more exactly, to the creation of visual analogues for sharply particularized states of

The very intensity of the assault which her painting makes on the eye drives it, as it were, past the point at which it is merely a matter of optical effect.

It becomes acute physical sensation, apprehended kinesthetically as mental tension or mental release, anxiety or exhileration, heightened self-awareness or heightened awareness of unfamiliar or even alien states of being.

One of THE most important lessons which I learnt at Boreham Wood Grammar School was that...

ALL criticism is valid as long as it is CONSTRUCTIVE - in juxtaposition to most societies, particularly British, whose collective mind-set has been manipulated to believe that -

ALL criticism is inherently DESTRUCTIVE.

In response to Michelle Goldberg's "Brave New World" online Tablet Magazine article - I can only concur with the comment therein posted on January 27th 2012 -

"I like to consider myself an open minded person and while there is an amount of conspiracy hysteria involved in the Zeitgiest documentaries, there is one unavoidable fact that emerges from all of them. That it is the monetary system, as we know it, that is doomed to failure. [IT]’s just a matter of when.

Man can’t create synthetic steel, water, oil etc. These resources WILL run out eventually and as our economic system is based entirely on the consumption of these it has to fail. Then what will we do? With No TV’s, Cars, etc. We will be left with no option but to return to a sustainable lifestyle i.e organic farming. Some will call me a communist among other things which is a natural reaction from people who really don’t grasp the long term consequences of our lifestyle as a species.

I have no political agenda here, I’m just one of many people facing up to the facts."

Consciousness is not something that can be sucked out of being to leave an awareness-free “ontology” lying around waiting to be known by some other sentient being; consciousness, rather, goes all the way down, and forms part of the intrinsic awareness and intrinsic creativity of each ontological being or holon.  Whitehead’s “ultimate category - namely, “the creative advance into novelty”—is part of the prehension of each and every being in existence, and the creative-part cannot be ripped from the being‑part without severe violence. 

To postulate the most fundamental level of reality as merely ontology—being without knowing or consciousness or creativity—is basically a 1st-tier move that shatters the Wholeness of this and every real occasion.

BY effectively taking down the historic 4th WALL that kept us separate from NATURE and BY embracing the very fact that What IS Possible NOWwas never possible before • the passengers of Spaceship Earth in Freespace 4D are embarking on a [RE]newed collective relationship with NATURE • which establishes a [TIME]less zone for communication and commerce in4D™ by realising the dream of a common language in4D™ and the whole IDEA is to reclaim y[our] species lost relationship, as a constituent component of NATURE, through a permanent manifestation of the original concept of ... The ART of the POSSIBLE • THE CRUCIAL SHIFT from MAN v NATURE • EGO v ECO • to INTEGRATION as an OVERALL [TIME]design in4D™ • which constitutes a complete shift in ident[IT]y • more eco less ego • more us less me • NOT ME US as Bernie Sanders has proposed.
