Examples of what not to be

I don’t know if others have see this but its interesting both how similar some of the things we are doing are in name to this project (“floating cities”) and how different they are in substance.

Its a great example of what we don’t want to be and what I think some critics assume us to be, so thinking more about it

Maybe UN project developers could read a little Guattari?

As Martin Luther King famously stated back in the 1960’s “We have learned to swim the seas like fish, and fly the skies like birds, but we have not learned to walk the earth like brothers.’ Guattari’s ecosophy then is a philosophical attempt to remedy this situation, calling for a new way of understanding the world and our place in it allied with a new method of being to create an ecologically sustainable and socially equitable world.
