It's all gonna be OK!
It's all gonna be OK!
Having been a fan of the first film, I had to see the Addendum… Even Better! This one has a happy ending!
This film put a smile on my face that has lasted for days!!!
Warning: The smile part comes about 2/3rds of the way through. The beginning may make you frown a bit, depending on how much you have looked into things.
Yes it is! And how exciting that we get to be a part of bringing about a new and better future for us all! :)
You, and anyone else who enjoyed Zeitgeist Addendum, may also really enjoy these two videos- very similar in their uplifting and empowering messages at the end, too, while packed full of more imformation, complimentary to what Addendum points out:
“Esoteric Agenda” – 2 hrs -
“Secret of the Matrix” – David Icke
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-571613… – part I (2 hrs)
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-107513... - part II (2.5 hrs)
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7069902… – part III (2 hrs)
I watched ‘Esoteric Agenda’ and I enjoyed the extra details and info on our true nature. I’ve seen the Icke stuff before. There is a new Icke clip here…
I must say that the Addendum did a LOT more to cheer me up because of the very practical stuff we can do together. Wow what a world! I don’t want to give to much away, but I love the “Venus” info!!! Incredible.
It’s exciting to me to see more and more people talking about bringing actual REAL change, which HAS to start with us each individually, first, before it can spread out into the bigger, creative yet do-able reality of the new future with abundance and equality for all. It can absolutely be done. And The Venus Project is an excellent example of of one possible way! I see it and other ideas taking shape- but not simply one way of being/living sustainably, abundantly, and peacefully. I love many of his ideas, yet, for me, I want to be involved working with the land, working with animals, living simply and closer to nature- not relying all on technology to sustain me—if that makes sense. :) Of course, with his plan, people would have the time and ability to do whatever they felt drawn to do, too.
Here are some links to short videos about The Venus Project:

And then, of course, their website:
Yay, for forward do-ers!!!
I thought I’d share part of a friend’s message to our Conscious Evolution, Meetup Group, who is also excited about Fresco’s Venus Project. I think he makes some excellent points:
...”Zeitgeist-Addendum” brought to my attention an answer to a question that I did not have a good answer to before.
How can we manifest a utopia?
Jacques Fresco has already done it. Jacques is an architect and a philosopher. His is the most scientific, logical and realistic plan for a utopia that I have ever heard. Listen to “The Venus Project” and see for yourself.
Our future depends on all of us. We are all part of the universal consciousness.
If you choose to focus your energy on the current paradigm that can only end in complete slavery of the human race, it’s your choice. If you choose to focus your attention on deceptive things like the elections or what advertisement gets broadcast or what horrible things are happening in the world, then that is your choice. If you choose to fight a monster that you cannot defeat, then it’s your choice. It may be what you are here to do.
But our energy can be used to break humanity out of this circular, descending, dead end pattern. It can be used to lift us up into a new paradigm, a new consciousness, a new utopia that’s within our reach right now. It’s a utopia that we can have only if we manifest it. No one else will do it for us. We are the only ones. But it is a choice we must make.
“It’s a choice right now between fear and love.” -David Icke.”
Wow aspire!!! Incredible stuff. Thanks for sharing!
and my smile continues…
Interesting. Did any of you read the Living Nutrition magazine back in early Spring of 2008—fairly similar. It is pages and pages long but well worth a copy. It was on achieving a sustainable planet on all level, economics, food, energy a prediction of a cold war and ultimately worse as US is now alone (since unilateral action in Iraq) while China, India and Iran boom economically and militarily.
thanks chris! i watched the whole thing. and of course aspire has lots of cool links to provide as usual. =) i’ll check them out tomorrow when i get a chance.
i particularly loved the conclusion that we cannot hope to affect change without first starting with ourselves. we hear this a lot but rarely with the historical/political counterpoint.
have you seen the moses code?
Wow, more awesome links and inoformation!! Thank you Izhpt, Pianissima, and Chris!!!! Very exciting stuff! :)
Wow, I just watched Zeitgeist-Addendum. Amazing stuff. Kinda fits in with the Freegan philosophy of living entirely without money but not something I’d like to do. Eating out of dumpsters isn’t abundance but it does the job of a complete boycott of the monetary society. Something to think about I guess. I would have liked to see more concrete ideas for change in the movie but maybe I just need to look more carefully at the ideas presented and expand on them.
CHRIS – I hope your optimism about our future comes to pass. I really do and nothing could make me happier for that to happen. If it could happen, I think it would be after things were very bad, like we can’t even imagine today. That might do it, but absent that, I just can’t see mankind waking up.
I watched the video after you first posted it and enjoyed it more than the first one. I thought the surprise you mentioned 2/3rds through was beautiful.
I did some research on that project too. Not much info there and they seem to be in flux given their founders age. I bet he has had a life of grand ideas.
Despite the realism creeping into my mind, I do appreciate your vision. :)
Because of the free flow of information we have now and what technology is doing in the workplace I now can entertain the possibility of a shift without a major tragedy. The 100th monkey theory is well underway. I hope we are on monkey number 99 now.
It will someday be obvious to everyone that we can no longer tie earnings/worth to effort/work.
