For the record the first Zeitgeist film was an art piece done before PJ met Jacque Fresco and learned about The Venus Project. The Venus Project is not operating secretly under 3 names, we all know about The Venus Project and Future By Design. The Zeitgeist Movement is separate but in support of The Venus Project.

There is no profit motive. That's all I have to say about that, research it yourself don't take my word for it.

Phased plan reminiscent of religious organizations? As if businesses and government don't have phased plans?

Zeitgeist movement is interesting to say the least. I agree with the objectives but also think Peter Joseph is a bit loony and the movement's phase plan is frighteningly reminiscent of religious organizations.

Hi everyone, first the NJ Chapter of The Zeitgeist Movement has a new web address, http://www.tzmnj.com it's a work in progress.

Second, The Venus Project is the life long work of Jacque Fresco, at 94 years old he has been developing the concepts for over 60 years. He has a somewhat unique life experience that involves learning about what shapes human behavior or behavior in general. His concepts have been arrived at through the scientific method of experimentation and observation.
People may look at The Venus Project very narrowly and through their current mental conditioning, so they often see what they are looking for. Many folks in the various movements who are looking for boogie men find boogie men everywhere TZM and TVP have been labeled many things by people who only see what they want to see. Often people with no more then 3 hours invested come to the conclusion it's NWO, Technocracy, any of the "isms" communism ect., or a utopia.
There are 3 main concepts of TVP, Environment determines behavior, Resource Based Economy and totally integrated city systems. The primary factor in behavior is environment and unless people are made aware of this fact they will not want to move into a resource based economy which supports cooperation over competition. The integrated city system is the total environment that supports and nurtures positive behavior by proving an abundance to all the people of the planet with the highest standard of living.
The argument that this is just another in a long list of movements that have come and gone is false, nothing like this has ever been attempted before. All other movements have focused on one thing, which fails because it doesn't take into account the root causes of why the movement in another direction is needed. Even the civil rights movement is a failure because there is even worse social stratification then in the past. The sad thing is that all to often the liberators become the oppressors, and the people fail to see that because they think having a voice is what it's all about, it's not. This movement will only succeed if people do something about educating themselves beyond just watching 3 hours of Zeitgeist Addendum.

Friends,

Here is the new 1.5 hr Zeitgeist Movement Orientation Video by Peter
Joseph.

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3932487043163636261

It can be download in full dvd format here:

http://www.thezeitgeistmovement.com/joomla/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=25&Itemid=62

It is a public domain work, in a simple slide show style,

intended to give a more specific overview of the tenets of The
Movement.

This should help clarify a lot of the misinformation and false
assumptions out there.

Please view and help spread the work far and wide!

Thank you

The Zeitgeist Team

We need to educate people now while we still have the internet. Tell as many people as you can so we can create enough awareness to stop the progression to a police state, like I think will happen within the next year or 2.

Also, how about some back up on the thread I posted under Politics labeled "911 Conspiracy".

Understanding the Great Transition. First visit http://www.tellus.org/
Lots of great information, think tank style analysis, and hopeful scenarios.

On the way to work this morning I was thinking about how can we get this message out to as many fertile minds as possible? Who are the largest group of forward thinkers and most active about their beliefs, so active that they formed a worldwide phenomenon of conventions organized by those average folks. Conventions that brought the top minds, talents and pioneers in the field on which these conventions focused.

Star Trek Fans, yes that's right Star Trekkers, I'm a big fan myself. Star Trek has the most active fan base of any modern mythos, most dream that life could be as simple as transporters and replicators, and sustainable living.

The Transition is upon us and it's up to us as individuals to make it happen, it's time for each one of us to realize as individuals we have unlimited power to dream and make those dreams happen. We are problem solvers and solution finders and loving compassionate caring people, let's make this transition happen.

There are two models of the future sustainability that we can look at and get inspiration from, the first is what I already mentioned Star Trek. The second is actually here now and has been used for over 15 years already, and that's the Free Software Foundation model of GNU software development. We need look no further then the GNU concept of how people from around the world come together and write great software for the rest of us to use in freedom. It's powerful it works and it's scalable, most importantly is shows that global chaos has a way of forming a harmony that results in productive and useful things. The world will not fall into ruin if we transition to a Planetary system where the wealth of the people is in there compassion to live well, and give others the same wellness.

Replicators and transporters are not here yet, but they are right around the corner. By 2025 computers with have superseded the human brain's processing capacity, and the supercomputers of today will fit on your desktop and cost nothing. Telecommunications will happen through quantum entanglement, computer memory will be stored in the DNA of engineered bacteria in our skin, gigaquads of self replicating storage units.

Anyway first things first, food clothing and shelter for everyone, now.

Seth
