"The future must see a self-contained vessel capable of sustaining an environment for human habitat on its own, through its own interfacing with natural phenomena. This would allow the vessel to be taken anywhere - to the top of a mountain, out in the dessert, to an island, anywhere. It would be an Earthship". -Michael Reynolds.
Imagine a home that you can build yourself, with your own hands. Imagine that it is self sustainable. No need of a heater or AC. Imagine you can generate your own power, collect your own water and grow your own food. Imagine an Earthship, it is possible, it is the future today.
This is what we found at the 'Greater World Community' in Taos, New Mexico. A group of people with a vision to create a different world, one where we live in harmony with nature, where there's no need to be connected to external power sources so by default there's no bills to pay, where the resources are used in an intelligent way, and where the old mentality of wasteful societies is no longer a trend. A great inspiration. This is the way we want to live when we settle down, once you have the knowledge about it, there's no way to go back.
