You see apathy, indifference, early-onset diabetes, heart disease, depression, FOMO, and countless other ailments, symptoms and diseases, are plaguing America’s youth. Hell they’re plaguing America, period. But the youth, the youth are our future. As such we, as a culture and a nation, need to guide them and instill in them a connection to the land, eachother, and the whole of humanity. John Muir got it. Roosevelt, with the creation of our National Park System, got it. Shit, even Nixon kinda got it. But by and large, in 2018, nobody, leaderwise, really gets it anymore.
What am I talking about?
Communing with nature is a essential part of the human experience. It’s not like it’s the biggest secret ever either. Just ask generations of hunters, river rats, swimmers, runners, cyclers, rock climbers, multitudes of various other recreators and ranchers and farmers and on and on and on. And that’s just instinct and proclivity-based behavior. In 2018 the science is in and it 10000% supports what some of us have known for years: Getting your adventure on is part of being a fully actualized human being, and beyond that it’s just plain part of staying healthy and happy. Doctors in Norway are starting to write prescriptions for hiking in the woods. And did you know bird song lowers your heart rate? Well, it does.
I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking the “outdoors” is hot hot hot. Woods are trending. National Park attendance is through the roof. Trailheads are happening. We’re getting outside. Problem solved.
Yeah, but no.
Sure people are, in fact, flocking in droves to Yosemite and Yellowstone along with countless other National and State parks. Yup. That is (technically) happening. But here’s what maybe you don’t know: 99% of them aren't leaving the parking lot. 99% of them are just taking selfies in front of geysers and famous rocks.
And the other 1% is going for a trail run with headphones on.
Bottomline, it’s not enough to just go outside. It turns out you gotta go inside the outside. That’s where you come in. We want Mythical State Of to help us promote a new addition to our National Parks and Monuments program: American Vortices.
AV is an official governmental designation for areas, zones, and towns endowed with Vortexual energy such as, but not limited to, vortices, ley lines, sound bathing, crystal energy, Crystals & Pistols, people watching, alien abductions, remote viewing, magical rocks, crop circles, area(s) 51-57, energetic resonance, underground doppler, rippling, time travel and gem birthing.
1) Why is Vortexual Energy so important? Spirituality and the Collective Consciousness, that’s why. The healthful benefits of Wilderness and Outdoor Recreation are legion but it turns out that’s only part of the puzzle. The FBNPP has been conducting studies for over three decades and here’s what we’ve learned.
Spirituality is an integral part of Self Actualization.
2)If you want to eat sunshine, walk through walls, talk with the Allfather, levitate, manifest, experience the quickening, time travel, do alchemy, properly harness telekinesis and telepathy and remote view, etc., you have to go inside the outside.
3)American Vortices are not the ONLY places where this is possible but they’re 72% more conducive to “going inside the outside” than regular places like Cleveland or El Cap, for example.
In 2019 the Federal Bureau of New Age Practices and Principals will announce six American Vortices; Joshua Tree, Mt Shasta, Ojai, and Sedona. Please see the attached pre-production promotional poster (FOR YOUR EYES ONLY) for Joshua Tree AV.
How do we want you to promote AV? First, like everything else one might file under “excitement” we’d like you start by teasing an unexpected audience—Road Cycling and Gravel Cycling and Brovet Cycling. That’s right. Bikes. We’d like you to create an AV edition of the Manual for Speed Artist Kit Series. We’d like you to commemorate AV. The gift shop at Glacier sells Pendleton blankets and t-shirts with howling wolves on the front. What will the AV store in downtown Sedona sell?
What says get inside the outside?
Show us that Daniel, show us that.
