7 Steps to Arcologies of Well-Being
1-Not for Profit
Free rent. Free food. Free medical and dental. No need for a car. This small, experimental, self-sustaining human habitat takes care of each other like a tribal family. The mission of this book is to teach leaders how to systematically elevate themselves and others to their highest level of well-being, living and working together at the highest level of unity, until the highest possible ideals are achieved. When people are in “survival mode” they can’t dream. Remove the survival aspect of life and we believe people will be free to dream and realize those dreams.
2-from the Inside Out...
We dare to break ground inside our own hearts and minds before we break ground on a construction site. We re-build our core values and social responsibility, and learn the new advancements in thinking and feeling about our fellow man, before we apply any new advancements in architecture, permaculture or bio-conversion. In fact, arcology designs and ideas will only be accepted from those who have attended our classes.
3-from the Ground Up
We re-design the social structure within each arcology to provide greater support for all 7 Elements of Well-Being including the economy, the health care system, the education system, the religious system, the workforce, the utilities, and the governance systems.
Starting with the Online Discussion on GlobalWell-Being.org, we offer workshops and training that will help to establish local hubs, teams, co-ops and add to our numbers. We will discover our life purpose and define our roles within the arcology long before we design the arcology.
5-then On Land
We design and build small, self-contained economies with innovative enterprises in each one including farmers markets, restaurants, theme parks, health and well-being clinics, and centers to support each element of well-being.
Arcologies can be built anywhere in any town or city or rural countryside that has a group of 100 multi-generational families who want to live there. The sum total of their gifts and talents make it happen. The early stages of architectural eco-designing and the formation of financial and legal entities for each arcology are done online without having to move our physical home address yet.
7-and Around the World
Arcologies will sustainably produce more than enough to build the next arcology. Arcologies in poor countries will produce more than enough to end poverty for those who live there and beyond.
