I've spent the last couple of months doing quite different things from what I normally have. I've been outside, digging in the garden, tinkering, using power tools. And I've been studying a bunch of new things I knew nothing about. Aquaponics, fish, plants, plumping, permaculture, forest gardens, and many sub-subjects of each. Now, this is really quite uncharacteristic. I.e. I've never been interested in any of those things before. But maybe it is not so uncharacteristic of me to dive deeply into a new subject.

And, looking a couple of posts back, 2011 Accomplishments and 2012 Aims, I notice that this is actually exactly what I said I would do.

What is new is that I might be writing more about it. Doing more physical things, building stuff, watching nature, surprise, that actually leads to lots of deep things to talk about. But I'll also just talk about those practical things, without any need for them to be deep. Resilient, local, distributed, empowering action has always been part of the subtext here. And there's lots of practical stuff it might be a good idea to start paying attention to.

30 May 2012 @ 11:11 by shreepal : Need to begin - First Earth Summit......
In our fast moving world where unfortunate conditions (over which humans have no control) are tumbling down at the break-neck speed and an evil World Order is being crystallized before our own eyes, the idea of a New Civilization offers a flicker of hope in the heart of millions of people. But this idea still has not caught-up the imagination of mankind; the idea has not gone main stream in its appeal.

There is need that the idea of New Civilization is brought to the main stream of humanity’s imagination. This can be done by organizing an annual event of the Earth Summit of Peoples’ for New Civilization. A beginning has to be made in this direction; and, New Civilization Network – as an institution, as a group – has the moral right and the concomitant responsibility to take initiative in this direction.

How can this be done? What are its logistics? This first thing is to raise the necessary funds. Let New Civilization Network work – at least for the time being - as the organizing center for this event. A general appeal may be made to donate money for the purpose; bank account may be opened in the name of the event; the Administrator of NCN may work as the account-keeper and administrator for the event. While thus taking care of the funds, a place to hold the first ‘Summit’ may be chosen by inviting suggestions on the NCN site and arriving at a general consensus. Once this much is done, volunteers may be invited to make preparations; and, lastly, the date of the event, registrations of the participants, lodging arrangements for participants etc. may be tackled.

What should be the theme of the first ‘Summit’? I suggest we use this slogan as a theme: ‘We peoples of the world have gathered to save Earth lest our posterity blame us!’

Hello Flemming. It's been a long time since our last contact during the heyday of the New Civilization Network, and I would like to re-establish contact. A lot has happened since that time.
