OUR AREAS OF NEED
Innovative ArtWe obviously need major aesthetic assistance for our web pages, campaign graphics, bumper stickers, self-dismembering Big Body dolls, etc. If you have any great visual ideas for illustrating/dramatizing Big Medicine's themes and ideas, we are all eyes...
Eccentric IdeasLike those gifted with a genius for languages, music or art, some precious few of us are blessed with strange insights into "how to do things better." If you were endowed with such an inventive spirit and care about the Big war we're in, pray focus for a moment on our cause. You may see strategies or solutions we never even dreamed of and would certainly love to hear.
Trivial PursuitsWhatever your particular talent or obsession, pursued with intensity, it will often turn magical or at least inexplicable in your hands. Given that ours is an evolutionary war against the agents of consumptive conformity, these miscellaneous flashes of genius light the way to another future in which our individual gifts are nourished with more reverence. The story of your art's becoming and the flashes of wonder along the way offer an important testament of our nearness to "Otherness" and greater reason to trust in our own non-corporate devices. In other words, please share the lessons of thy path.
In a similar upper chakra vein, see Charles Tart's fascinating TASTE - The Archives of Scientists' Transcendent Experiences.
And, of course, if thy gifts happen to have any anti-corporate utility, pray apply them to the cause with dispatch and flair.
Educative ArdorIf you are a teacher by training or disposition, and understand how the importance of ideas like Big Bodies, Earth Hour and creative attention can be best introduced to young minds. please help us develop educational materials.
Reckless ResourcesWe need specific project support for alternative media campaigns, like the Ki video series, as well as maintaining this ragtag campaign. If you would like to sponsor a particular project or just help us stay alive, please contact or feed us here.
Subversive AcquisitionsWhenever you stumble on a bit of insider info that illustrates striking reasons for (or new ways to accelerate) corporate shrinkage, give a whistle. We shall gratefully reward thee with full credit or total anonymity, whichever is desired.
Alpha AffinityIf you have extensive knowledge and/or experience of alpha states, we need advisors, assistance and references for the Earth Hour project. Please check out the site and see what comes to mind.
Salubrious ScienceThough roughly 90% of scientific research today is funded with an eye to Big Body needs and profits, there are still brave mavericks at large working on projects that would help decentralize, democratize and "Green" technology (e.g., cold fusion, web-based education, energy medicine, etc.). Such concepts will be crucial in the post-Big Body era and we would appreciate hearing about the most promising ones now.
PR PrecocityInspired spin doctors, flacks and marketing prodigies all have a preternatural sense of what "the public" is prepared to embrace and how to nestle their message there. Since we are marketing inconvenient truths that many sentient adults are half aware of but have somehow agreed to ignore, we have a problem. If these people feign surprise at our Big Body revelations, they can feel hypocritical, stupid or traitorous to their own intuitions. If they admit they suspected as much all along, they may appear cowardly in the eyes of their children. How do we return these truths to such peoples' grasp guilt-free and ready for action? You tell us...
Holistic HackingBeyond the remedial help needed with this primitive site, we just need to know you are out there and able to swiftly navigate Big nervous systems if ever the need arises. Although we intend to encourage Big Body "fruition" or voluntary break up whenever possible, there will doubtless be holdouts, especially in the more nostalgically fascist regions of the world. We thus strenuously hope that you and your seditiously skilled brethren are all training to reach out and touch someone, particularly some ones that are Big, distant and despotic.

NANCHO NEEDS OF THE HOUR
See Innovative Art or just look around. We could use it all - children's Big Body posters, slick election logos, class home page graphics, T-shirt designs, whatever. Anything that brilliantly illuminates some angle of this effort is most welcome.
For the Anthroculture section, we need any info on the psychosomatic effects of stress, fear, hierarchical subordination, etc. for ANY SPECIES. Examples we know of and need more info on include: slime molds, zebra fish, mole rats, chickens, baboons, men in suits. And then, of course, there are the examples we haven't even heard of yet...
Ideas for Promoting Ideas
Please pass on any brilliant notions you have for spreading Big Body, Earth Hour or Ki ideas cheaply, widely, effectively through the non-wired world (where most of us still manage to live). Better yet, test fly these notions yourself first and see how they work -- then tell us what happened.
Since it is often easiest to introduce new concepts by illustrating them with familiar examples, we are looking for scenes from well known movies which illustrate Big Medicine's central ideas. For example, the sinister/seductive appeals for surrender to corporate rule in Network and Rollerball, the ball-breaking stress of military "basic training" in Officer and a Gentleman, etc. Whenever you come across any scenes or films that vividly depict corporate "conditioning" or pathologies, please let us know.
Video/CDROM Project Support
We still need considerable tech and financial support to produce the "Ki & The Powers of Japan" series as well as a CDROM and video cassette focused entirely on Big Body evolution and pathology. If you are (or know) someone who could help with these projects, please get in touch...
This campaign's expenses are ridiculously low by Big Body standards, but we still have to feed the help, pay the bills, and stage the occasional publicity stunt. Whatever help you can manage will yield a bigger bang than any buck you have ever given.
Or think of this site as a political shareware shop. If you find anything here that helps your thinking, vision or impact, you could always drop a token payback in the TIL.
Those of you who have reverenced this world and tasted its liberating power already know why it is banned or systematically degraded in every hierarchic society. Just as the ancient saints used sexual metaphors to describe their union with the Divine, you too must help us remember how to exploit that grace, not as a sport or delicious sin, but as the highest, fastest road to sacred compassion. (See "Meditations on the Tantric Grail".) Any references, links or ideas for reviving that awareness would be lavishly appreciated.
Given the high correlation between the use of soft drugs & psychedelics and political resistance to the dominant corporate/consumption paradigm, it is not strange that so much force, money and prison space has been allocated to suppress them. What is strange and shamefully ungrateful is that so few of us who have deeply benefited from their insights and grace are standing up against this madness. For the sake of Big Medicine, the greater good, and your own self-respect, also help the Drug Reform Coordination Network or other groups like Norml working to end this nightmare.
What good is a revolution you can't boogie to? We need tunes - Big Body blues or battle hymns - haunting, angry or wildly exultant. What you got?
Reconnaissance on Sixties SurvivorsRemember those heroic all-night bull sessions and the valiant friends who vowed to enter the Big Corporate Beasts, rise quietly and subvert them from within? How many have survived? How many can you contact to deliver the message that their time has finally come?
