So, as you may or may not know, I plan on starting a town that is founded and focussed on the advancement of science while at the same time helping people.
This is the founding Vision Statement for that town is this:
A city which is dedicated to the exploration and advancement of: Science, Technology, Knowledge and Understanding while at the same time fostering and encouraging: Art, Culture, Humanitarian Endeavours, and Commerce in a manner which: builds up, enhances, and restores each and every member of our community, both new and old, so as to help each and every individual to become: Whole, Healthy, Happy, Productive and Successful.
That is a tall order but it gets better, here is the recently completed “Zoning Plan” as it were for the place. As in what areas go where.
Yes, I know that the measurements don’t quite add up, but this is a concept which will have to be adjusted to match the measurements and shape of the land that I/we get.
Now, I could talk your ear off about this place, but I won’t. As that is not this document and not this blog. If you look at it, you should get an idea of the various moving parts, as it were.
I will be happy to answer any questions anyone may have (or Heaven forbid talk to anyone who wants to . . . help make it a reality).
The point is that to found that place, if I won the $70 Million dollar Lotto Max prize, that would be a good start.
So, a Gofundme campaign is . . . while not out of the question . . . an extreeeeme long shot to start that place.
So, what I need to do is to scale back that plan and start what I call . . . “The Incubator” a smaller simpler version of that place, founded on the same ideals and grow from there.
While I can’t afford a full Section of land (640 acres) I could afford to buy a Quarter Section (160 Acres).
I can’t afford to start the Town itself, but I could start my homestead and grow from there. Who knows, in a generation or two, that town may get founded *groan*
My point is that while it is easy to look at the large goal and give up, the point is to look at what you can do and do that.
I may never found that town as I envision it, but I can at least get the ball rolling. I can do something, even if I can’t do everything.
Don’t give up on your dreams, just do what you can do and grow from there.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
