"A modest attempt at developing a habitat that would be sufficiently persuasive for people to understand and endorse "frugality" not as a necessary evil but as a necessity fully capable of becoming a virtue. a necessity because the planet is "suffering" from the profligate consumption-unlimited pursuit of "happiness." A virtue because living reality, us in it, is the fruit of eons-long stumbling around that will eventually generate those agencies that would in turn bring about consciousness (via frugality). To make it very, very short: Can anyone conceive of any phenomenon even dimly paralleling the immense frugality of a performing human brain?" - Paolo Soleri
