Exceptions Are What We Need Today

Whats more common in today’s world than the title above is the phrase “You better stop before one of you ruins it for the rest of you.” And that is what is accepted in society. That is what we believe is right and justice. But is it really?

I’m here to change your perspective on that today.

Picture in your mind for a quick moment what it must have been like for Adam and Eve and all their limitless choices they had to choose from.
Picture what your life would be like if it was exactly the way you wanted it. Perfect.

Till they ate the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge.
Now picture life today and all the limits and regulations we have weighing down on our shoulder. Do you believe you can achieve your dreams? Most of us probably don’t.

Adam and Eve are stripped of their rights for being attracted to what we are all attracted to today. So what will life be like a hundred years from now if we keep getting stripped of our rights? We’ll have to be robots in order to survive. Slaves of the wealth system.

How are we going to create a world of opportunity if at the same time we are drawing lines.

There are so many people today that have HUGE potential but corporate people will never give them the light of day. Because they don’t have an education. When they can’t even afford an education. Or a car. Or anything. They come out of high school and are forced to walk to Wal-Mart for an application. And yeah there will be those who say “Well they should have gotten straight A’s in high school and planned ahead!” Well this is my response to that.

The education system isn’t perfect. The Education system is built to wear us down as a matter of fact. With rising intuition cost and competitiveness we have no choice but to stress ourselves out. We feel like we’ll never make it out. And that ‘feeling’ will only make it come true through the law of attraction. Those same people who say we should have been smarter to begin with should think about what they allow in their media. They allow drugs, violence, sex and all things bad to reach the eyes of their children. My five-year old niece came home from school with a pencil that says Dont Do Drugs on it. That’s pathetic putting such things in the reality of the most curious age group. And us trying to “fit in” also leading many in the wrong direction. We only know what we are shown. So those of us who went astray in high school, we didn’t know better. Dont feel guilty for it because that’s exactly what they want us to do so we never move forward.

If we do not wish to see this world decline into the end of its existence then one thing we MUST do is start making exceptions outside of the system. Because the system is built to bring us down.

When your forced to make a decision that is against regulations think about these things, please. Is anyone really going to find out? If they do find out, is doing the right thing to help someone out such a crime? The situation can be explained and if the listener has a heart im sure it wont be a problem. It feels good to do the right thing.

As an example for making an exception i will create the following scene:

A boy (who is 17) drives out-of-town with his mother to visit relatives for a holiday.
After the holidays the mother has to go back work but the boy wishes to stay longer.
So they buy a plane ticket and the mother drives back home.
However, the boys Identification Card is in the car and back home as well.
And he needs this identification to go through security at the airport.
Luckily he happens to find an old i.d from when he was ten in his luggage that hasn’t been used since then.
This i.d has his full name and date of birth. The picture looks just like him with glasses.
He is also wearing glasses the day he takes this i.d to the airport.
All this boy is trying to do is hop on a plane and get back home.
But due to a fake terrorist attack september 11th security is tight.

If you were the lady taking this boys ticket and I.D what would being going through your head when this story is told to you? Is thinking a 17-year-old boy (with an aunt who works at the airport by the way and is with him) is a terrorist really seem logical? Or does it seem like something we’ve been brain washed in. Think about it. And if you are wondering why i said fake terrorist attack click here.

Earthship Homes

Click to go to main Earthship website.

All information provided by http://earthship.com/

These homes that i recently discovered are quite extra-ordinary! It will literally revolutionize the way we live on a planetary scale. They are most affordable, and most earth friendly. I could go into reasons why they aren’t our primary home builders. The most obvious would be because our current home builders would lose tons of money. Its time to let go of our old ways! But lets not focus on the negative here. Let me tell you more about these homes.

The design principles alone will blow you away. So get this, the electricity is supported by wind and sun. The water is stored and filtered from snow and water. The sewage has a sanitary treatment system. Heating and cooling are from the sun and earth. And you can grow your food both outside and inside! Wow. Why havent many people heard about this? So now that you want more information let’s get into details.

  • Electricity

The earthships produced their OWN energy with a prepackaged photovoltaic (sun) and/or wind power system. The photovoltaic panels convert the suns energy into DC current electricity and it is stored in “golf-cart” type batteries. Then some of this DC current is inverted into AC electricity and supplies it to the home. This electricity can be used for washing machines, computers, kitchen appliances, print machines, vacuums and so on which can all be used daily. No electricity is required for heating and cooling. The POM or your Power Organizing Module can even accept electricity from a gasoline generator or inter-tie with the city energy grid.

  • Water

Catchwater

Water is caught from the roof with a portable surface. From the roof, the water is then channeled through silt catches into cisterns. The water from the cistern  is gravity-fed into a Water organizing Module with a pump and filter.

Use & Re-use

Water is used in a conventional way such as bathing or washing dishes, except for the toilet. After you take a bath your water will be cleansed a second time in interior botanical cells. Then its third stage will be the toilet for flushing. After it is flushed it is contained and treated (in your very own home) and used a fourth time in exterior botanical cells.

Hot Water

Water is heated with the sun and natural gas. The sun heats the water and the natural gas is only turned on if the water is not hot enough. This is called Gas-on-Demand water heating.

The Water organizing Module

The water from the city, your cistern, and other places can all be linked to your WOM where automated systems can manage your water levels. Filters clean the water for human consumption and use. And when your plumber goes over, they will see what they are used to seeing.

Bottom line: we are in such a water shortage here on planet earth so we need to start practicing the harvesting of water in each individual home. Lets face the facts.

If there are energy shortages, individuals will have water problems.

If there is ecological damage, individuals will have water problems.

If there are economic crisis, individuals will have water problems.

If there are computer glitches, individuals will have water problems.

If there is political turmoil, individuals will have water problems.

If there is war, individuals will have water problems.

  • Heating & Cooling

Earthships maintain comfortable temperatures in any climate.

The planet earth is a thermal stabilizing mass that delivers temperature without wires or pipes. The sun is a nuclear power plant that also delivers without wires or pipes.

The outer few feet of the earth heats up and cools off in response to surface weather. However, deeper in the earth, about four feet and beyond, the temperature is more constant (around 58 degrees). Here, the earth can be used to both cool and stabilize temperature if the home is appropriately designed.

Earthships are thermal mass homes first, passive solar homes second. Therefore, the layout and design of the Earthship can be completely customized to look like any conventional home, and still be sustainable.

  • Food

A fundamental concept of Earthships is that gray water from the sink or tub is recycled and purified by feeding into an indoor planter before being used to flush the toilet.

Earthship create an environment in which plants are not only aesthetic and contributing to the heath of our environment, but are also highly functional and play a direct role in the maintenance of the home.

Having plants that produce food within this environment makes sense and takes sustainable and independent living to another level.

  • Construction Materials

The primary building block of the Earthship are Rammed-Earth encased in Steel Belted Rubber. Or, recycled automobile tires filled with compacted earth materials encased in steel belted rubber to build an everlasting earth brick.  The resulting walls formed are seriously indestructible.

Aluminum cans and glass or plastic bottles can also be used as ‘little bricks’. They are a simple way to create interior walls that come out quite strong as well. The can be used to create colored walls that light shines through.

The creativity that is applicable to put into these homes goes well beyond our current imagination. As most of us have not participated in the building of these homes. You can participate in the building if you like though just click here to learn more about the Earthship Intern Program. Look at the pictures below and let your imagination run wild. Start planning your new home for the New Earth after 2012.

Earthships build faster than the homes we today live in. Now, how are you going to build your earth ship..
