The Third Eye and Universe Happenings

26 Sep

Writing about it

A lot.

There’s a lot going on right now. Everyone knows this.

Hello to my folks in Detroit. That’s us! We and Ed just changed the world.

I’m here in a library in the USA where some folks have it. That’s the gossip. We need to start writing more, and to sift through all the garbage pages out there.

I have it. I’m the Third Eye. The one broadcaster. (Chelaxia has the key).

Don’t worry, we’re here to change the world.

Re-blog: Working With the Institutes :)

18 Oct

Hello, folks: I wrote this earlier this year originally at a blog called http://www.moneylesssociety.com.

Hi there! This is Ed Che writing travelling in Chicago currently, and the quest for worldwide freedom could easily be accomplished. Join us in advocating for an Institute system, and contacting currently existing institutes, which unexpectedly and serendipitously match many of the goals of the free world concept.

When we started on this journey that was Occupy Wall Street a few years ago, and the decentralized conversation evolved into being against capitalism, over the whole country of the US. Who would have actually thought: This is actually going to work. Anything, you can imagine or get today, even from a currently for-profit storefront, will soon be switched onto a new functioning system. The aspects of getting the “things” to the places where they need to be can be handled by a new concept that feeds whatever the local area priorities are, called the Institute.

Coming with this innovative distribution system, comes more or less simultaneously in, are the universal inventions which facilitate the free where you are. A simple heater. An engine which uses pure water, in overunity retrofit. A method of cooking that is as flexible as your aspirations to design it, as well as being presently commercially available. Electric, wifi, hot water, fresh drinking water, and transition no-rent housing; which if other things become a community priority then this will make no sense to one, too.

Welcome to a future where everything is free. Things could be supplied to the places where they need to be by an order system, and are picked up, in transition by anyone who is a part. One of my favorite concepts so far is the Sears, Roebuck institute, which would use a resource based economy in order to make available the abundance to anyone who ordered. Since these things are community priorities, someone would do them, even if no one had to. There is a way to gather the resources (mined by robots with a built-in ecological awareness), and we work for each other, in a new bio-regional area, but still okay if mostly for yourself and your family.

What would a free city be like? Imagine to go downtown and get a meal (diner style or all-you-can-eat in the morning). The building draws you in to multiple rooms which are designed to include people in the processes of making things, and you find something that interests you. You can get involved in the making of software, art, culture, music, or anything you feel. As you go, you get to know folks who are also there and this becomes a home away from home. You live there even, and put together the pieces or recordings of what’s going on. There is no job for someone, there is no money, and others will be doing other things you care about for you, so you can pursue a mastery and not worry about if there will be things for you after. To change masteries one can, and the new training and tools will be provided.

Would there be those who would try to slack or self-ish the system? Of course! However, these people are part of our human family, and deserve food and a place to stay, as well. While the only necessary rule is, “don’t aggro the admin,” there would be some amongst us (more reptilian, let’s be honest), who would be limiters ingeniously appropriate based on what the object is. There would also be the presenters, people who are adept at displaying objects which were ordered and delivered from different institutes. They do this because they are genuinely interested in making sure that others have what they like. (more, Plieadian.) Finally, home-based people with cars who are interested in baking for example could gather bulk parts wholesale from the institutes directly, leaving their advanced cooking preparation to be a drive around to different places. The folks could make suggestions on the internet, which would hold a different weight based on whether they were willing to do anything to help make it happen. This suggestion to provide a certain object would be taken into account by the open community, and hackers and makers would try to make this person’s demand from the bulk of available resources/materials institutes available. If it could not be met and is a popular enough demand, then systems and institutes form to meet that with next year’s abundance.

Transitionary systems can be designed by present forward-thinking and supportive for-profits by a “cash out” model – design to sell something once so that it afterwards is free, maintained with minimal staff and money, and provide regular free upgrades in the future. If you did this, probably everyone would do it, and your present-day employees get the benefits to being an early adopter. Furthermore, the institute model thus detailed allows for American sense of prestige, reward for boomers who worked hard, allowing current bank accounts to be transformed into a more glamorous freedom: it will be easy for the current wealthy to get free, others will have to work at it. Boomers would then be able to retire and not worry about expensive plans, applying for stuff, or a world and life of extreme scarcity. The current 1% (who, keep in mind, may have thrived on cheating, dog-eat-dog, oil, and destruction of traditional societies) should invest in things with no return, granting a future of plenty and peace and stop further environmental destruction, even of other planets.

With such a model in full functioning, there would be no reason for other constructions. Corporations, there would not be room for them as the green paper formerly the highest concern of all beings becomes silly. Housing would be built with a clear motive: freedom. Everyone would do what they love, and with clear reasoning. New things are hacked and come out every day, and fame of inventors would spread quickly.

So this is a call to join in imagining, drawing, and advocating for such an advanced system, and celebrate. As someone who is reading this post, an institute for a manageable thing could be in your future. Nearly everyone in humanity would be happy for and support such a system. We are near breaking the chains that have enslaved nearly every other thinker. It’s amazing, crazy, and beautiful, but yet it could work. What do you think?

Please follow my blog and twitter for more real-time updates as we try to implement this system in Detroit; https://eddiemill.wordpress.com/ and http://twitter.com/eddiemill, or email me at ed.che@riseup.net. Ed currently operates at the Base Institute in Detroit and so would appreciate the creative commons: NC;SA be respected with future Institutes.

New York Needs Another Skyscraper – on Rent To Own

16 Oct

Why New York needs more tall buildings: On Rent-To-Own in Cities and A noncapitalist skyscraper

Okay so how many people you got in one of these cities like tons. And, how can it be that coming up, $800 dollars a week is going to be sustainable? That’s on top of the minor things it takes to live, which impoverishes the people. So, with no one having much extra except for that café and the bodega, we’re near close to free right? Anyways, different conversation. This one is called Why New York needs more tall buildings, and you’ll see why in a moment this is a plan for a non-capitalist skyscraper. Other buildings could be retrofit, too. The concept is called rent-to-own, and that’s something I think would appeal to many city folk.

What are the advantages to an apartment in the first place? If you’ve lived in one you know them: a space that you can call your own, not all the hassle of a house, has the “things” that define modern life: a tv, internet probably, some electricity, kitchen appliances, running water built in, okay. How is this particular building of apartments built? Now, here is the first ready-set-go assumption: that these utilities can be provided in a de-centralized way and in their own abundance without a money-per-month type arrangement. The building is built with these things, which other than any natural limits, which solves our sustainability crisis right there. Alright. Now that the building is built, windows sealed, that central HHO, forced-air heater hooked up to your thermostats, light and power all connected, we are ready for some tenants and ready to pay back the building.

Rent-to-own premise part 1. Imagine you are a young couple moving to the City, ready to make a go of it, or you are a single traveller who’s ready for what that City is. You find apartments on a competitive rate find basis, but you don’t really want to be saddled with that. What would be better is to have your space that no one’s going to come kick you out of, establish yourself and hit the ground running, but really you’d like to own. Every month some dude coming to your door is not classy, and lurking like a predatory investor really. After you owned, he’d be your friend and know you. You require less orienting and turnover rate, and you know how to be in the City. However, you cannot be like “oh, my friend is going to take over,” no: original application ownership cannot change. If for any reason you want to leave that place (apartment dwellers prefer apt for their flexibility too), you do so with no penalty and the apartment goes back into the pool: you keep your mobility and are not tied.. you don’t have to deal with selling like you would a house.

Cause Ownership is the dream of every New Yorker. Additionally, many in our generation feel this sense of loss that things that used to be so symbolic of our country are a false profit-ic shell of capitalism, the police and judicial system, and a new world order charade that continues to make sure the rich get richer while the poor run on the survival pressure rat-race. If we (including many of the intelligentsia/politicians) know how not to be, that we don’t want capitalism communism or socialism, if the opportunity comes up we might just take it. This plan sets up a way to transition our occupy housing to accomodate, in a way which pays for itself, and paves the way for information and culture- sector researchers and institute workers of whatever type the future holds in store for us. We can meet those dreams and requests in a way that doesn’t constantly kill ourselves doing it either. I hope that this is clear: a plan which houses folks luxuriously and pays for itself? Who will fund me, let’s take this on.

In fact, such a plan does not even have to be funded and taken on by me, the subconscious search for rent-to-own in cities like Chicago and New York will do it on it’s own. Perhaps 2015 may not completely change every landlord’s heart, but to tend away from, that, can eventually change or eliminate what can be a really harmful way of being. We in turn populate more our cities with folks who can be competent there, giving them an adequate sampling, everyone has their turn, keeping minds open for transition, and 8 months later you are, a lot freer. I hope this plan gains traction and substance as folks talk it. Namasté, Ed Che. A Global Organic Mindset written Wednesday, September 23. Published Oct. 13th, 2015.

Tribal Paradigm: lifestyle

25 Jun

Hi there!

In the emergence of a new paradigm which works for and elevates the human condition, we can adapt new modes and models to help understand humanity deeper and better. Once established, the model will easily fit most anyone who comes into it, and other methods (such as key-giving) could be used to deeper incorporate the people who show promise. These interface procedures deepen trust at the level of community. Deanne Bednar, of Strawbale Studio, said she likes to think of what did they do at the village and tribe, and how can we get closer to that. We are the generations dissatisfied with this myth of progress. We know the truth of history and the history of money. [link] Let’s come together and make a better system. Straight up.

Work Camp – it’s like, someone gives you a cigarette or a few afterwards.

It’s time to re-form our brain and do things for the other in clear places that are designated for work. Things like quality and time will be accounted for, and that’s righteous. Skilled craftspeople are held pretty highly in society.

http://ubuntuusa.com/about-us

There is no need for money in this society. We are in urban Detroit, where over 40% were unemployed before the revolution. Now, they are being led to freedom. I have been amazed at the spirit of ubuntu generosity I have experienced from everyone here already. If anything is to be made, it is right now made out of recycle stream, and soon when we capture a mine to be added as we can produce from source. Gas money. The steel for example is used to make sheets, for the HHO cells which free farmers for more quantity and variety, and to make secondary products via our bodega institute. Wood is all over the city which we can deconstruct houses for. Opening up houses can be good alternative work, or vocation. The land is free as the mother gave it, if there’s a building on it well, then someone might have just claim to that. For anyone in this labor force, it’s making the things that we want.

Free Camp – pizza recipe: bread, sauce, and oil. Satisfies the craving.

Gardening Camp – go there during the day, do a lot of stuff, gets a bag of weed.

Think about a new institute. This could do as many things as it wants to, as is manageable, and could be added to or removed from as demand goes. They want you to grow things. If you agree to voluntarily grow something for society, then you’ll be gifted the seeds and tools, and people will come help you set up.

Camp Corporate – would like a vodka drink of choice or bar environment

Advanced manufactured things are made in different shops around the city, to order, from the available institutes. As more things are freed across Michigan, we expect that more things will be made. If it’s something that comes from growing, let’s take up growing that thing in our greenhouses. Things that come in from outside are donated, are in-kind. Furthermore, membership includes free everything that anyone else makes. Note: you’ll have a free house with no bills, as well. Then we’ll get to the free store, as in the vision.

Village apprenticeships

Different shops are around to apprentice at, and creativity combines different requests, essential oils, and gets seeds ready. City government would provide all the necessary tools for your trade, in the meantime we use hackerspaces and the makerspace like the George Washington Library in Chicago. Education is passed on from wisdom that elders have learned, and they want something to do well that is take up teaching other kids in the neighborhood. We will have transitioned up to 4 schools in Eastern detroit which were shut down when there was no money, and now with the city’s permission they do not use money nor train people for a society with it.

Space Age Free Future: One in which no currency is used, rather the full spectrum of humanity is known in those that you would deal with or know and love.

The Ten Thrival Guidelines or Commandments – Tips for Living

8 Jun

Ten tips for living in a permaculture environment, from “The Integral Urban House,” book at a special commons space library!

  1. Thou shalt honor the mystery and subtlety of the universe which brought forth the ecosystem which is thy source; and recognize that its design exceeds the crude capacity of thy mind.
  2. Thou shalt not compartmentalize the ecosystem or assume that by knowing a part thou understands the whole.
  3. Thou shalt resist the narrowing of thy appreciation of the whole system by the preoccupations of thy work.
  4. Honor all experiences. Don’t perpetuate their mistakes. Respect the integrity of information.
  5. Thou shalt not reduce the information of the biosphere through extermination of species, destruction of unique configurations, or significant individual organisms.
  6. Thou shalt not take from the ecosystem more than is consistent with its continual well-being. The energy and materials that flow through you are a temporary privilege providing opportunities for reasonable self-expression.
  7. Thou shalt not divert more energy, material or space to the human species than is consistent with the continued health of the biosphere. Thou shalt not waste energy, materials, or information.
  8. Thou shalt not spread false information. Thou shalt not pervert information to enhance profit or status.
  9. Do not exchange your best understanding of how things work for cheap social concensus.
  10. Look to thyself and thy surroundings. Do not try to be anyone else. Respect for self and nature have a common root.

Hope this helps! Has passed through a few of us and we’re like, yeah good!

We’ll Get There

7 Apr

We are the ones the underdogs ready to take on the mantle of a new society; happily folks are starting to wake up though to the facts: that things are not our whole utility, purpose and happiness as people really, is for the others :). With that assumption gone, the truth is that the established structure crumbles.

It becomes a matter of how to get things from A->B, and that’s something that we do every day. We gotta get on the same page; and so that is, what’s been called a free world renaissance, involves process as much as content, trying to be more matriarchal and less dominated. Many of us believing that yeah, this will probably be the method of the future. If you think this would be worse for the environment, just ask or consider anyone who’s lived free already.

I pasted two people’s comments and a page together, is all. Now this is a nice direction of where we could go:

Here is Changing the World – #Freemovement

https://pastebin.com/mbHshhpN

and it builds in us as we spread the word (world?). If you have any comments, leave them! If this doesn’t work with you for any reason, please let me know! Otherwise, you can share from the buttons there.

Spreading the word about a free world will not lead us to a transition, spreading the word IS the transition. We are already in it. All we need is a sufficient will of the people to bring about the necessary changes. A figure as low as 1% of the world’s population may even be enough to start an unstoppable chain-reaction, but how it actually unfolds is anyone’s guess!

Here’s the “Bulletin” I made up while at home to simply get our heads in the right place as we are going through this, for March: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pqvxhfm1tgf07a5/chesbulletinmarch.pdf?dl=0 . We all are working on this in our heads, could we just get rid of the money?

We are the ones that are to inherit this, and make the new way to do everything. Matriarchal: yeah love-based instead let’s get rid of the money. I had a BA, but have seen a lot of humanity along the way. Happy to do something like this, and try to do it as a best possible path and yeah, ❤

Ed “Che” Miller.
