~ Idea 1529 ~17 September 1998 We must absolutely add overconstruction and overurbanization to the destructive trends of our present society against the Earth, namely overpopulation, overconsumption, overtransportation, overactivity, etc.
Yes, how many new buildings, hotels and houses are being constructed often at sizes which are not necessary, require huge energy consumption, water consumption, maintenance, and lead progressively to the destruction of the Earth? For example the annual rate of new housing in the US alone was 1,613,000 in 1998. In 100 years this would mean 161,300,000 and by the year 3000 1 billion 613 million new houses. Can the Earth bear this?
More generally how many new activities and products are invented every day by the western society making people confused and doubtful about the real, deepest, spiritual meaning of life?

Robert Muller's Birthday
"What is your most important question
about the life of Robert Muller
as we celebrate his 83rd birthday?"
|Robert Muller ||Hear Robert Muller LIVE on his Birthday ||Douglas Gillies |
Robert Muller is celebrating his birthday on March 11, 2006, and you're invited to join Robert live on the telephone! When I wrote Robert Muller's biography, Prophet--the Hatmaker's Son, I wanted to show readers how Robert came to think like a global citizen. Over a period of three years, I interviewed him 42 times. This year, on his 83rd birthday, I will interview Robert once again, but this time I will be asking YOUR questions. Here's how it works. You go to http://www.robertmullerpeacemaker.com and ask your most important question about Robert's life. In a few days, I'll send you an email with the phone number and access code. This is a free call. The only cost will be your regular long distance charges. On March 11 at 9:00 a.m. PST Robert will answer YOUR questions about his life. If you prefer to send a birthday greeting instead of a question, that's fine. I will ask as many questions and read as many greetings as time permits. If we don't get through them all, I will present the rest of the questions and comments to Robert on a birthday card. Maybe we'll even do this again sometime. It gets better. I'm going to professionally record the call. Anyone who signs up will get a chance to listen to the audio on their computer or their iPod whenever they want (so it's not a problem if you miss the call). If there's enough interest, a PDF transcript will be made. Many people receiving this email have already read Prophet the Hatmaker's Son. If you don't have a copy, or if you would like to give it to someone on Robert's birthday, you can now buy Prophet wholesale for only $14.95. That's what the bookstores pay, and I'll go one better and pay for the postage to ship it by Priority Mail anywhere in the U.S. Read about how Robert Muller fought in the French Resistance during World War II and then dedicated his life to peace at the United Nations. This is going to be fun! I hope you can join us. To sign up, go to: http://www.robertmullerpeacemaker.com
All the best, Douglas Gillies

living your code of destiny.
Learn how DECIDING to be happy even in the most difficult situations contributes to the health and well-being of ourselves, each other and the entire planet.
