I am hoping that as many people as possible who are interested in The Great Gathering will take the time to thoughtfully and with an open heart look at the work of Jacque Fresco, http://www.thevenusproject.com
The Venus Project offers a comprehensive plan for social reclamation in which human beings, technology, and nature will be able to coexist in a long-term, sustainable state of dynamic equilibrium.
Mr. Fresco is now 93 years old and has dedicated his entire life to this end. His work is called The Venus Project simply because he and his partner of 33 years, Roxanne Meadows, live and have built a research center in Venus Florida.
It is common in our mass-media to read and to hear commentators talk about the number of social problems that face us today, such as global warming, destruction of Earth’s environment, unemployment, crime, violence, poverty, hunger, and the population explosion. Yet, how often do we hear of workable plans for alleviating many of these social problems? It is relatively simple for people to criticize society, however it’s much more difficult to identify and implement plans to resolve the problems.
The Venus Project is a veritable blue-print for the genesis of a new world civilization, one that is based on human concern and environmental reclamation.
The plans for The Venus Project offer society a broader spectrum of choices based on the scientific possibilities directed toward a new era of peace and sustainability for all. Through the implementation of a resource-based economy, and a multitude of innovative and environmentally friendly technologies directly applied to the social system, The Venus Project proposals will dramatically reduce crime, poverty, hunger, homelessness, and many other pressing problems that are common throughout the world today.
One of the cornerstones of the organization’s findings is the fact that many of the dysfunctional behaviors of today’s society stem directly from the dehumanizing environment of a monetary system. In addition, automation has resulted in the technological replacement of human labor by machines and eventually most people will not have the purchasing power to buy the goods and services turned out.
The Venus Project proposes a social system in which automation and technology would be intelligently integrated into an overall social design where the primary function would be to maximize the quality of life rather than profits. This project also introduces a set of workable and practical values.
This is in perfect accord with the spiritual aspects and ideals found in most religions throughout the world. What sets The Venus Project apart, however, is that it proposes to translate these ideals into a working reality.
I believe with all of my heart that the implementation of this project is the fullfillment of the prophecy of The Eagle and The Condor, and I can only offer this for your consideration. Please with and open heart and mind take the time to honestly consider the aims and proposals that can be found at the website.
The powers that be are already working overtime to misrepresent and suppress this information. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns about The Venus Project.
In Peace and Unity

Miriam’s reply: I have not heard about the Venus project but from your description I am very interersted. I will look at this more closely but it may not be until I return from a month of travel. For this reason if you do not see me answer this then around the middle of Feb send me an email to ask my opinion on this. Thank you. With love ad gratitude, Miriam
