- Throughout my explorations of the internet and community newspapers
in search of information on arcology, one thing has become quite
evident: people are generally oppposed to the idea of mass
population living in one giant edifice.
This is primarily due to society's current way of living. A look at
the "American Dream" explains this a little better: a nice little
house in the coutry, big back yard, white-picket fence, car in the
driveway, family dog, etc...
Well, news flash everyone, times are changing, and the time has come
where we can no longer all have this dream. It's time for a new
dream, the "International Dream" if you wish, where everyone lives in
peace, and everyone shares everything. Paolo Soleri's theory of
arcology addresses many of the degredations faced by today's society,
but only futurists, (such as we here in this Yahoo Arco Group), are
prone to accept this theory.
We know it will work, we know it is the solution to many problems,
yet nothing is being done about it. Paolo Soleri in fact, is the
only one who can truly claim any progress in the matter.
Truth is, there are enough of us on this planet that firmly believe
in this theory to make this work. If only we could unite, to work
together, share ideas... We need one unified website, not each our
own. We need a Chat location and schedule regular meetings. We need
to create an organization who's sole purpose is the succesful
completion of an arcology.
Together, as an organization focused on making arcology the new norm
in the world today, our goal would be to determine a suitable site
for an arcology, create funding opportunities, tender contracts and
complete construction of the project before the next millenium.
Site selection is important: it needs to be built in a "neutral"
country or territory, to demonstrate to the world what is possible
when mankind is unified, and help eliminate man's need to aggress thy
What say you? Can we do this? I think we can, and I think here is a
good place to start... Please post your thoughts...
- Hi Louis,
Thanks for the offer, that's terrific! I'd love a personal email
address... What format are we going to use???
I also think we should have a few generic email addresses reserved
for when our website is up. ie. info@... and
membership@..., admin@..., and maybe
a few others...
Thanks again for the great offer!!!
