Eearth New Year 2017

This is the first Eearth New Year event, so expect thrills and spills aplenty. Making this up as we go along, the event is based on a premise of a 'conscious celebration' which is to say a celebration of people who are conscious of living in the Anthropocene; so all the elements have an environmental message.

Eearth New Year is a celebration, a commemmoration - and in some ways a commiseration - of the beginning of the Anthropocene Epoch. That deserves an awesome party.

Listen to Guy Lane's introduction to Eearth New Year.

What happens at an Eearth New Year celebration?

20 or so people will gather at a remote location (Mt Sampson) where there will be a bonfire, booze, food, music, entertainment, games, conversations, jokes etc. It's a slumber party, which is to say, the opportunity exists to stay overnight at the venue.

What is provided: The venue - the fire - the music - the food - a sheltered place to sleep and a mattress - music, entertainment and games - some inexpensive Eearth wine (maybe)...

What you bring: warm clothes (it will be as cold as polenguin poop) - sleeping gear - booze - tent (if you want) - camera's - something ceremonial to burn in the fire - other stuff befitting a outdoors party that celebrates the beginning of the Anthropocene Epoch.

Venue: Mount Sampson - twenty minutes North West of Samford Village.

That's Mount Sampson in the distance. The block slopes gently down towards the fire pit.
The fire pit, ready for a fire - and a hungi, maybe... There's also a maze for the amazing...
That's a few teepees - not sure if we can use them, though. This is the long house, about 50 meters from the fire.
The plan is to cover this floor with 40 mattersses for overnighters. Kitchenette in the long house.

The Anthropocene Epoch

In a meeting of the International Geological Congress (IGC) 27 August 2016 in Cape Town, South Africa, it was agreed that the holocene era had ended, and that we humans now lived in a new geological era called the Anthropocene.

The Anthropocene is the name given to the modern era in which the humans are the main force of changes on the Earth surface.

A number of dates were proposed for the start of the Anthropocene - one of which is the beginning of the nuclear age - but no decision has yet been made.

Until such time as the official agreement about the Anthropocene is resolved, 16 July is Eearth's 'interim' New Year.

Welcome to the Anthropocene

Eearth New Year celebrates the beginning of the Anthropocene Epoch. The official start date of the Anthropocene Epoch is yet to be determined by the geologists; so Eearth uses the Trinity Bomb Test (16 July 1945) as the interim start date.

The Moogh Game

About the game

The Moogh Game is a lesson in political ecology and the Planetary Boundaries and it is based on a scene from the novel set on a beach in Spain. Read the Chapter from the Moogh that describes this scene: <On a Beach>

The Object of the Game

The object of the game is for the Moogh to move along the beach to the waters edge so that it can swim across the Mediterranean to Morocco and plant the Moogh Tree. Some people want to help it, some people want to hinder it. Who will prevail? That depends how the game plays out...

The Players Their Roles & Relationships
The Moogh The Moogh just wants to Amble and Pose.
Maggie Tarp Naive young journalist, and the Moogh's best friend. She's pals with Maxine Slivkin and is constantly trying to get Perrin Speer evicted from the Moogh Zone.
Perrin Speer Hot shot, ambulance-chasing journalist, lacking in social intelligence, looks out for Maggie Tarp and doesn't give a shit about the Moogh.
Maxine Slivkin A.k.a. the Latvian Lesbian, a Russian business woman - Chair of Moogh.org, CEO and major shareholder of Moogh Capital Plc. She milks the Moogh phenomena for as much money as she can make. She doesn't care about the Moogh except as a source of uber-wealth. She is the inventor of Moogh Coin, and this only works while the Moogh is ambling.
Prof. Frederick Frotter Dotty old university professor man who loses things easily, but has scientifically proven that the Moogh's poses represent the nine planetary boundaries.
The Adherents Moogh groupies who worship the Moogh and are exploited as free labour by moogh.org in exchange for access to the Moogh. They physically defend the Moogh if necessary.
Level 4 Security Foxy women in while leather catsuits, armed to the teeth with Rhinox-25 stun guns (Stunners with Stunners). They provide security first for Maxine Slivkin, and second to the Moogh. They are vicious.
Moogh Underground Disgruntled ex-adherents who run interference with moogh.org including routinely clashing with Level-4 Security. A passionate, but undisciplined fighting force, mainly made of angry young men. They don't care for the Moogh, and just want justice for moogh.orgs corruption.
Fly-bys Day-trippers to the Moogh Zone who are charged a hefty entrance fee and don't even get a show bag. Drunken louts who don't care for the Moogh, and will do anything to find out what it carries in its closed fist.

How its played.

The Moogh seeks to move along a preset course, representing Greece to the beach in Spain from where it seeks to swim to Morocco. Maxine and Level-4 security seek to prevent this.
