“If you want to teach people a new way of thinking, don't bother trying to teach them. Instead, give them a tool, the use of which will lead to new ways of thinking.”
― Buckminister Fuller
“The greatest change we need to make is fr...om consumption to production, even if on a small scale, in our own gardens. If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone. Hence the futility of revolutionaries who have no gardens, who depend on the very system they attack, and who produce words and bullets, not food and shelter.” -Bill Mollison
We reside in a world of infinite difference coalescing; A world amalgamating and separating to produce a desired affect. As inhabitants of this world we act as giant transistors of this difference, contemplating and experimenting on the production. It is the goal of Rare Earth Beauties to expand upon this contemplation and experimentation, and to provide a tool, in the form of productive space, for others to symbiotically channel the affect that is life.
Our greatest teacher continues to be nature, and those who have spent their lives dedicated to the intonation we can achieve alongside such wilderness. To contemplate the polarity of water, and see within it a reflection of community, of oneself, of the entire universe. The Hermetics had a saying for this reflective ability: "As above, so below."
And so it continues. As we plant seed, watch a plant grow and fulfil it's life-cycle we are reminded of the many patterns it broadcasts along the way. There is the initial climax as the radical breaks the seed in search of nutrients, a delicate growth phase as it gathers these nutrients and breaks the surface, a branching pattern occurs as it forms it's first true leaves, and these patterns cycle themselves to produce a secondary climax, that of inflorescence when the flower buds, producing all the genetic material required to replicate it's lifeform, and thus regeneration occurs.
We begin replicating this process here at Rare Earth Beauties; we are creating a movement. As we radically emerge from our seed coating we are making our way to the surface, and gaining life-giving support and attention from people such as yourself. As we breach the surface we have created a growing community, a seedling rapidly channeling towards the light that is knowledge and truth, these things are our lifesource, and through them we will provide a new source of life for our community: A nature market and living center for all to enjoy!
