Spiral Island is the name of a floatingartificial island built in Mexico by British artist Richart “Rishi” Sowa. It was destroyed by a hurricane in 2005; a replacement, Joyxee Island, has been open for tours since 2008. 

Spiral Island has been featured in a number of newspapers and TV documentaries around the world, including in Japan and South Korea, and has been featured in an episode of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! TV series, and on the MTV program Extreme Cribs in 2011.

Eco-pioneer Richard “Rishi” Sowa designed and built an artificial island kept afloat by 100,000plastic bottles.

Spiral Island II is actually Rishi Sowa’s second artificial island. He built the first one in 1998, near Puerto Aventuras, using 250,000 plastic bottles to keep it afloat. Sadly, his recycled island was destroyed in 2005, when Hurricane Emily passed through the area. Most of Spiral Island…

Are We Out of Big Ideas?

WORDVIRUS

“The Gods have died!”, the villagers cried.

“What should we do? Mourn? Grieve? Plead?”, the Chief asked the Priest, desperate.

“No”, said the Priest, looking at the sky, afraid.

Here’s a tiny question. Are we idearupt? As in: bankrupt of great ideas?

Go ahead. Name me an “ism” that still works.

I’ll wait.

Conservatism? #LOL. Liberalism? #lol. Capitalism, or what’s left of it? Sure, maybe for billionaires. “Libertarianism”? I invite you to Mogadishu, good sir. Socialism…syndicalism…anarchism…mercantilism…revanchism…shit!!

Wait. What about…Bronyism?

Perhaps you see my point.

We’re living through a kind of implosion. Not just of institutions—that much is obvious. But a collapse of institutions that was detonated by an implosion.

Of ideas.

Yesterday’s ideas about how to organize societies and economies simply don’t work anymore.

And so we’re left in a vacuum. What’s a vacuum? A void. An emptiness. An absence. We’re out of good…

Wait, Humans are Satellite Dishes?

Humans are Satellites

*Some terms and associations may be off. Bare with me, people.

You see a satellite dish, this dish’s signal is traveling to SPACE, people. Space.

Then, from space, the LARGER satellite (that is in SPACE) is sending a signal down that comes BACK to the dish that you see before you.

Now, from this dish is a cord to a box (satellite receiver / tuner) of some sort, that receives these signals and transmissions for displaying images and information to the television screen that occupies a room with this receiver / tuner. Now, you have THOUSANDS of television channels for your comfort.

Satellite Humans:

Humans are the satellite dishes of Earth. We receive information / ideas from our solar satellite in space (the Sun) and then from the Sun, we receive numerous transmissions and information for our daily lives. The most important would be light, I think. Then from here, different humans tune in and transmit different channels of information and ideas, in which we share with the world around us.

To conclude, could we be satellites, as well as the television sets that displays and presents these received facts, ideas, and informational channels?

(maybe)

[Fun Fact: Everything in this solar system is a receiver of the “Super Satellite”.]
