I've been thinking that what I really would like to accomplish is a sustainable and independent way of life. I mean in every way possible - to have access to clean water, without using the public water-main; to produce the electricity for my needs; to grow my own food, without shopping from a store; to heat my home in the winter and maybe cool it down in the summer. All of this without producing or by producing minimum waste and effect on the environment. If possible I would be very happy to eliminate the need of money - all the incomes and outcomes (although. I am pretty sure I can not produce internet by any means).
Sustainable existence. Why? Because if we don't find solution and balance with nature, we will be the ones extincted. But this is not the worst about it (it's not like we are not doing it to ourselves). The worst is that we are not going down alone, because although it is sure that the world will continue existing and without us, we are for sure taking a part from it with us. It is sad and unnecessary.
Leaving aside the Apocalypse and the undoubted health consequences, it is a challenge that I am really up to. I can see it in my mind - a small cottage out of any village (maybe on a tree?), made by natural easily recovered materials (bamboo for example), with a system for catching and purifying rain water and homemade wind generator. It would, of course have a garden with fruits, vegetables and spices. It will also have a green roof (planted with grass), which in addition to being beautiful and ecological is very energy efficient. I will also need some recycling and purifying systems for the refuse.
I have heard for such houses before, for people who maintained this way of life. I would very much like some day to be able to change my life so it is completely in harmony with nature, because I believe that this is the only way to truly live here.What is your dream house?
