Futurist ideas
« on: March 10, 2012, 04:39:29 AM »
Hi folks,

I have started this topic as a place for some of the ideas of futurists (and similar) such as:

Jacque Fresco - The Venus Project (especially check out the transport section)
Marshall Savage - The Millennial Project

regards,

Greg
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

Fresco did some nice stuff but his 1950s / '60s styling hasn't kept up.  He later rejected all Space-Colonisation theories, realising that Earth is an organic "space-station".  (thus taking down his forums which had been swamped by Trekkie-geeks).
Unlike others, he hasn't yet realised that he needs to actually build a village that works (not make a movie) before his ideas take off.  Others have started.

Can you post some pics from that Millenial Project ?  My computer doesn't like the website.

For a Future-Village that is currently under construction see http://co-opvillagefoundation.org/
It's located near Pensacola, Florida & has over 500 workers / residents-in-waiting.  I've had some input into its design.

I live on an organic space-station in orbit around Sol.  Unfortunately it's being destroyed by a parasite called Western Society.

I travel through Time .... but only at the rate of one second / per second.
