Could Dekota Standing Rock become a “MôS Town”?

It’s interesting to me to compare the growing encampment of Standing Rock to other pop up camping like Burning Man, with over 50k ppl for a short time. Standing Rock is an action by the water stewards to protect the earth. Emergency Earth Medicine Towns, EMT'S, or Ephemeral MoS Towns. I envision a new movement of pop up earth care sites. The protectors build villages that are then abandoned yet they leave behind betterment. So they are also Ephemeral MoS Towns. In the future, the EMT's are historic sites, like Stonehenge, but will be lush cornucopias since there were set up with the plan of beneficial succession, like Terra Preta. The abandoned emergency earth habitat medicine villages will be future zones for abandoned people (ZAPs) to thrive. The abandoned, independent people become the important caretakers of these historic EMT's that saved the "PlasticScene Era" from extinction.

Thanks for creating place & having a mudball!

Wow what a super fun MudBall Ball! Outcomes? Ppl pleaseeee 
Send feed back ... and what could help the next MudBall be like what you want your piazza to be like. The piazza is full of life activities each one of us choose out of free will. Activities that will redesign everything to help clean water, air and soil and selves. Everyone is welcome to do what they can to improve our cultural designs. We focus on daily life in our world with intention of great design and a by-product of beneficial succession. To create a complete village we need to disagree with people to help contextualize our views and keep in check. If we spoke to only people who agreed with us we would be limited in outcomes. What can we do.. to better our lives and the planets? I say build piazzas, community gardens, plant food and nourish playful joyous communities that create bioremidiating lifestyles and collaboration. I want to see people be the change and practice it here if you can not manifest it outside. The piazza wants to be an active living solution to our daily lives that address directly our health and quality of life.
