Big rocks go in FIRST…The Long-delayed Round Table of the Five Elements

Yes, you guessed it – I DIDN’T  put this Big Rock in first… 18 years it’s been on

my longtailed back burner agenda… and it should have been one of the first things I built, at Cafe Eutopia.. why? Because it is the symbol of synergy.. social, intellectual and spiritual. It’s actually love articulated – everyone, every different type has a place and respect in the circle of process which shows how opposites are all needed.  Now, at Dreamspace gallery Gisborne, I’m finally just doing it. For gathering of extraordinary minds and hearts to imagine Eutopias, networks, creations, possible humans and communities… resilient adaptive ones that can survive upheaval and chaotic change – which are surely coming…

I’m using the free resource of newsprint roll holders…squares of strong particle board which get put out on the verge every week or so. When we perfect the design I’m thinking I’ll make a file of the shapes for laser or jigsaw cutting and put the plans in an ebook of the Round Table for worldwide availability…

Here are some photos of the surrounding planner boards which echo the five colour of the table. For more on the theory see www.4phase.org

You can just see the four sectors of the round table marked in chalk on the floor,  surrounding the central fifth table (the one pictured is a standing for it. The central one is the Balance , the purple zone of the status quo which feeds us…hence the cutlery! 🙂 Also the golden ring of community on top of the candelabra – it’s a rubber ring I found on the beach… synchronistically… and painted gold. It’s too big for oneperson to wear, it’s flexible and strong, golden and pure like gold and black inside representing the ability of good communities to absorb negativities….

The panels need painting and the holes filled with disks which I rout out of offcuts.. The whiteboards will show all the things we’re working on… the blue outlined one for new inputs, the green for new ideas, yellow for new plans and evaluations, the red for to do lists, and the central purple one for the mind mapping of the status quo of the whole enterprise, updated as new developments happen.

Wizard letting go of Eutopia – Grounded Visionaries wanted – pass it on!

Seagull Cafe

I’ve been thinking of doing this for years. See the new listing in Trademe for the details:

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=658908280&ed=true This is for the land, sculptures, AND organic cafe business.

I seem to have had the ‘nudge out of the door’. I’ve realized the job of Wizard of Eutopia is a movable one: it’s my task to ground visions of Good Places, not necessarily run them or grow them. Wish I could have finished this work to the point where it was all neat and tidy and making lots of money – but then if I could have done that I would not have been the wizard. Humbling, but liberating to accept.

Please if you care for what has been grounded there in Kaiwaka and want to see the right people get it, FORWARD THIS to whomsoever you think might fit the description – grounded visionaries. Or moneyed visionaries/angel investors who are wise enough to know they need to hire some grounded people to build it…

The vision of this place is such that if someone was to buy it and cut it up and rebuild it in a city, they might do very well out of it. It is a movable feast. There is potential to build other Eutopias too. Contact me if that sounds interesting!

Vitruvian Sheman

A possible theme for an heroic-romantic sculpture of the Balance at Eutopia? I was thinking recently about what could be an image for the Possible Human, moving beyond the magnificent but martial and solo male David by Michelangelo:

I was thinking about my ‘Live Hand in Hand’ image of the man and woman,

then of the vitruvian man,

also my concept drawing for the courtyard dome:

and wondered, could a couple be standing in a circle looking out from the prow of the Eutopian ship?

Then this evening I stumbled on this while searching the wonderful google images. It is in an article here: http://blog.world-mysteries.com/strange-artifacts/da-vincis-big-secret-part-1/

“Union of Woman and Man

The geometric pattern seen below has been proposed by Wayne Herschel as having been encrypted into the monuments of many ancient civilizations as part of a decipherable code defining “who we really are and where we come from”.

As you will see exploring this website that the human genus has absolutely nothing to do with any Earth evolved hominid at all. We replaced the Neanderthal after this species once destined to inherit the Earth was lost in an Earth cataclysm 100,00 years ago but we arrived in two distinct waves (see masonic secret); the first wave appears to be small experimental colonies 100,000 years ago in rather harsh Earth environment conditions and one recent arrival on every continent 17,250 years ago just as the Earth was changing to one that was more comfortable. The end of the Ice age was sudden with a major cataclysm around 10,000 years ago which reduced humanity back to simple farmers hunters and gatherers.

Wayne believes it was our returning ancestors thousands of years later that taught the primitive ancients of our sacred past and the secret of pyramids. This unique human five sided geometry pattern is also found in the paintings of famous artists like Da Vinci and Poussin and in the talismans and depictions of secret societies.

For millennia, woman have been robbed of their status as being equal to man. For this reason the definition of the ultimate human blueprint code and the sacred geometry(seen below) will be portrayed with woman in front of man.

In the 500 year old Da Vinci rendition of the original 2000 year old lost Greek manuscript of the original human code by Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, his depiction showed TWO pairs of arms and TWO pairs of legs. His masterpiece strongly suggests that two human beings were originally portrayed in the earliest source of the human code with one human in front of the other. It is therefore reasonable to assume that the original source of the human blueprint code would have portrayed creation of the human with divine proportion… but depicting also the sacred union of both woman and man.

Vitruvian-woman-man-L

We present in two parts Wayne’s findings on the human blueprint code. The source of the code appears to predate Vitruvius by many thousands of years.” Full article here: http://blog.world-mysteries.com/strange-artifacts/da-vincis-big-secret-part-1/

I thought this is the first actually beautiful male-female composite in esoteric art. Not dissimilar to my idea, which was to have the man looking ahead while holding a star/heartstone overhead (the star in vol iv of the Apples of Aeden, of course! The Diamond World. From which the Fifth Age (in the epic) takes its name.

I had to go to youtube and listen to this, Starman by Bowie:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=X5iOiLX5ppA

I will investigate the ideas from Wayne Herschel, and try drawing this concept for a sculpture, or at least a medallion…

The Wizard of Eutopia is coming

Well I apologise for the long delay. Here is the sign I’ve finally got up for the front of the STORY ARK, Kaiwaka, where I live and work.

Here it is, in case you are passing through Kaiwaka, Northland, New Zealand

It’s just across from Cafe Eutopia,

where I still hope to finish the building one day. Meanwhile, I am just this wizard for hire, to earn a few shekels by being (manically) creative for you, or if you prefer as I do, helping YOU to be more creative and free than you might believe possible.

I will be using the ‘flow rainbow’ (see www.flowrainbow.com) and the Tree of Life process diagram to elucidate the process of all creation and development, and giving you your own personal profiling so you see where you naturally ‘fit’ within the spectrum of culture – your own ‘flow zone’ where you are naturally successful. Plus there will be a menu of my book services (limited edition, POD, carved edge, etc), ebook uploading, ferrocement building and sculpting, and much more!

So click ‘follow’ this blog and watch this space!
