Every now and then I’ll head over to Space Collective™ to catch up on the creme-de-la-creme of articles, insights, and musings on why we exist in this universe. The website SpaceCollective.org is a community-driven website where the very best information and ideas are being exchanged about the current state of our species, our planet and the universe. The website, founded by film-maker Rene Daalder in collaboration with interactive designer Folkert Gorter, went public at the end of 2007, and is now occupied by more than 2500 contributors. Inspired by thinkers like Carl Sagan, Gene Roddenberry, Marshall McLuhan and Timothy Leary, who helped articulate the future by adopting a pop culture vernacular, the SpaceCollective™ team wanted to “use the online platform to do something similar for our times in a radically different interactive medium“. Well, boy did they ever succeed. If you haven’t been there you really must see it to believe it. It’s broken into 4 main parts: New Posts (somewhat of a blog/feed), Projects (scholars, students, and universities from around the world are conducting numerous experiments on SpaceCollective at any given time), Time Capsule (a briefing/profile of each member’s contribution), and the Gallery (probably my favorite part of the website, the Gallery is filled with some of the most incredible images you will ever see in your entire life).
I just got through a brilliant article on the quantum physics explanation for ESP, telepathy, telekinesis, and pre-cognition, and you can read it HERE if you like (WOW). After finishing that I cruised through a few more tidbits in their New Posts section and came across this beautiful GIF file called “Eternity” and thought I would share. The website is somewhat of a black hole for me — every time I head over there I get lost for hours (in the best way possible). To experience this incredible site for yourself be sure to visit SpaceCollective.org.
