Zeitgeist

 

 

In Oct08 a new "Zeitgeist Addendum" was released, can see it here:      http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7065205277695921912">http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7065205277695921912

Visioning the Future?

 

The Addendum concludes with promoting the Venus Project as the most coherent / 

credible / useful alternative to what seems to be a breakdown of our 

current designs.      http://www.thevenusproject.com/

 

The Venus Project idea seems to be part of what 

Holmgren would term the the full-blown "techno-fantasy" future option 

... although they talk like they support the "green-tech stability" 

futures one ... a little confusing, but that might be good mythological 

design in the end (given how many trekkie fans there are out there...)

But it could just be that they don´t have enough permaculture designers 

in their Think Tank (as they describe the Venus Project), because some 

of their premises sound quite close to ours ..

see  http://www.futurebydesign.org/about.html

 

(talk of this in oct08 on the openpermaculture list)

 

 


 

Contrast the Venus Project very high-tech visioning of the future with the (more permacultural?) very minimalist vision in the comedy-sci-fi movie "La Belle Verte"
