ethical enlightened child-safe
I envisage a non-elitist setup, with workable homes in the tradition of solar passive, green energy, ecologically sustainable designs. I see permaculture orchards-in-common if not vegetable gardens, with all plantings based on biodynamic principles. I also see locale-appropriate native and low-water, hardy plantings in uplifting landscapes. Given the water issue, extensive collection/tank infrastructure and composting loos, etc. would be used.
I anticipate a convergence of wholesome, ethical people aspiring/committed to improving health and awareness on all levels. While we may subscribe to different sets of beliefs, respecting others’ beliefs, along with the usual sensitivity to people of varying backgrounds and cultures, is a given. Essentially, it is a place where people create true peace and beauty to live amongst.
A fundamental (and otherwise deal-breaking) value would be the provision and upholding of a safe, nurturing, harmonious, optimistic, creative, and stimulating environment for children. For that reason I do not feel particularly fascist over the issue of canines and felines; and I feel fine if the consensus felt that a nightly restriction was a compromise to the native animal population.
Another core feature is that while, of course, we enjoy our sweet or otherwise toxin-laden treats, I prefer people to be sensible, and aside from perhaps the odd occasion, I want it to be a distinctively junk-free and “numbers and colours”-free food zone (i.e. organic). Ditto for other addictions. This is to be the “island within the island” refuge for those who feel war-weary and alienated by societal norms.
I’m dying in urban sprawl! Is it possible? What’s lost by trying? Whoever feels the same way and is wanting to make the jump, please contact me. Oh and the name, “Light,” was just to fill in the field, so this is just the seed waiting to be germinated. It could be an area-appropriate aboriginal name; better still, their blessing in a smoking ceremony to open.
