Sustainable Architecture - Strategic Planning - Feng-shui
For twenty-five years, Tom Bender has been one of the visionary
thinkers at the forefront of the sustainability movement. In 1971,
Bender quietly published a study, "Living Lightly", which showed
how the U.S. could reduce energy use by a phenomenal 90% while
simultaneously improving quality of life. "The piece spread like
wildfire across the country in dog-eared xerox copies. People
thought I was crazy," says Bender, "but it got us really looking
at what we could do. Now we're well on the way to accomplishing
that goal, which some people belatedly acknowledge as conservative."

"The essential new quality implied by the quantum theory is...
that a system cannot be analyzed into parts. This leads to the
radically new notion of unbroken wholeness of the entire universe.
You cannot take it apart. For if you do, what you end up with
is not contained within the original whole. It is created by the
act of analysis." - David Bohm -
The overall theme here is to make the world a better place, to
see things in a positive light, to stand up for one's rights,
to pursue self-improvement and greater freedom, to have fun and
to learn new things about life, the universe and everything.
