The Venus Project A society without a vision of what the future can be is bound to repeat past errors over and over again This brief video will outline a vision designed to avoid old mistakes This vision of efficiency, sustainability, and intelligent planing can lead us into a world of unlimited human potential. Designing the future This vision could be a showcase of what the world can be in our cibernated age science and technology could be used for human betterment and the restoration and protection of the environment serving as an example of the intelligent application of the systems approach. While some people advocate the restoration of existing worn out cities these efforts fall short of the potentials of modern technology modifying [outdated] cities simply delays the inevitable problems. It is actually much easier, in the long run, to build newer cities from the ground up than to restore and maintain the old ones. A total city system approach requires overall planning to attain a higher standard of living for the occupants. The circular arrangement efficiently permits the most sophisticated use of available resources and construction techniques within minimum expenditure of energy. The outer perimeter will be part of the recreational area, with golf courses, hicking, and biking trails, and other outdoor activities. Inside this area, a water way surrounds the agricultural belt, with indoor and outdoor agriculture. Continuing towards the city center, eight green sectors provide clean, renewable sources of energy, using wind, solar, and heat concentrators. The residential district would include unique landscaping, lakes and winding streams. A wide range of creative and innovative apartment buildings and individual homes, would provide many options for the occupants. New and innovative methods of fast mass construction for housing and building systems, will inject composite materials into the mold, and then extrude the form upward. In some cases, multiple city apartments can be produced as continuous extrusions, which are then separated into individual units. The apartments are lightweight and high strength. All of the dwellings are designed as self-contained residences. The outer surface of these efficient structures serves as photovoltaic generators, converting solar radiation directly into electricity, for heating, cooling, and other needs. The thermocouple effect will also be used for generating energy. These individual homes are prefabricated and relatively maintenance free, fire resistant and impervious to weather. With this type of construction, there would be minimum damage from floods, earthquakes and hurricanes. Their thin shell construction can be mass produced efficiently with little environmental restriction. Adjacent to the residential district are the planing, science, and research centers. The eight domes surrounding the central dome house the art, music, exhibition, entertainment, and conference centers. The central dome houses schools, health care, access centers, communications networking, it is also the core for most of the transportation services; which move people by transveyors horizontally, vertically and radially, anywhere in the city. This minimizes the need for automobile transportation, except for emergency vehicles. Transportation between cities would be by Monorail or Maglev. Waste recycling and other services are beneath the city the plant will use the best of clean technology, in harmony with the surrounding environment. The central dome also houses the cibernated complex, which serves as the brain and nervous system of the entire city. It might project a 3D virtual image of earth, using satellite communication systems, which provide information on weather, agriculture, transportation, and overall functionality. This cibernated system will use environmental sensors to help maintain a balance load economy which avoids overruns and shortages. for example, in the agricultural belt, electronic probes monitor and maintain the water table, soil conditions, nutrients, and more. This method of electronic feedback can be applied to the entire city system. With computers now able to process trillions of bits of information per second, they are vital for arriving at more appropriate decisions for the management of the cities. Colonization of the oceans is one of the last frontiers remaining on earth, prodigious ocean city communities would evolve as artificial islands, floating structures, undersea observatories, and more. These large marine structures are designed to explore the relatively untapped ridges of the oceans, provide improved mare culture, fresh water production, energy, and mining. They could also provide almost unlimited riches in pharmaceuticals, chemicals, fertilizers, minerals, and other energies. Ocean cities would be resistant to earthquakes, and greatly relieve land based population pressures. Unsinkable floating sea domes will provide for those who prefer offshore or island living. In the event of inclement weather, they could easily be toed ashore, mounted, and anchored to elevated support structures. Mare culture and sea farming systems are used to cultivate and raise fish, and other forms of marine life, to help meet nutritional needs. These marine enclosures are designed as non contaminating, integral parts, of the ocean system. A sustainable environment can be achieved through the infusion of technology, and cybernetics applied with human and environmental concern to secure, protect and encourage a more humane future. In the final analysis, we are one people, and we share one planet. www.zeitgeistcolombia.com
