The conscious foundation formed from a thought-experiment that to evolve further now requires energy from the wider public community.
I'm going to explain the meaning behind our name, because that's probably a good idea...
Beginning with "Inspire the Escape": Well, when sitting down and pondering a name for the new project. I was struck for ideas, so I slowly, like we all, navigated to Youtube to seek some form of entertaining distraction. Only to find myself watching an interview with New York hiphop star, Nick Caution, and when asked what he wanted to do, he replied "we just want to inspire the escape". Now as I herd this, a light bulb went ding. I felt that it was said so so perfectly, as are we not all seeking that acute external escape at every opportunity in our own personal little ways, the cigarette break, ben & jerrys ice cream, that adrenaline kick, yet very rarely do you hear mindfulness as a form of escape categorized alongside those other more delicious and exhilarating ones.
"Conscious": This comes from the element of the new progressive scientific understand of the unity field of consciousness which interlinks everything at a quantum level. Consciousness is defined as: "the quality or state of awareness, or, of being aware of an external object or something within oneself." - With the project we wanted to incorporate this concept, as it provides as basis for evolution of natural growth and guided direction, rather than manufactured growth which is potentially volatile due to being unstable and unbalanced. Target growth should be the most balanced, consciously evolved opportunist, not the most financially profit seeking.
"Foundation" - Legalese, that dreaded realm where you have to doge words with jagged edges. A Foundation can be defined as "an entity typically designed to either donate funds and support to other organizations, or provide the source of funding for its own charitable purposes." it's basically all the project aims to do, to try and build a platform for communication so that communities can then form a type of local quantitative easing to relive pressure from the real issues in their community.
Inspire the Escape Conscious Foundation - Turning your ideas into Reality
Inspire the Escape Foundation targets to add a new dimension to financial responsibility, transforming the way society invests in aiding to manifest one another’s ideas. It is the product of Bio-mimicry, a concept where one can take a system already present in nature and apply it to a human creation. Thus the foundations soul aim is to improve the environment, condition and well-being of all natural systems upon Planet Earth.
The first £1600 of the funding will go to officially and lawfully setting up the Inspire the Escape Foundation as functional body:
- Seeking professional organisation and guidance surrounding Lawful position of the Foundation
- Setting up of a simple online local community self governing system to allow community projects and potential doners to begin to establish local relationships.
We like to imagine the total amount of money flowing between banks, businesses and peoples pockets as an ocean of invisible energy. This energy, like water, can flow in and out of personal ownership and be used at will, traded and transferred, though it never gets destroyed, just like the energy in real life - as Albert Einstein said:
Thus the aim of the foundation is to “open all the gates” to allow as much energy as possible to flow back through into more altruistic projects perhaps with longer term considerations taken into account.
The foundation aims to provide a simple online system which can be used by communities across the world to build connections in their own local community. With this established the foundation can then provide financial support solely towards more altruistic projects, ones which serve both the local and/or wider community.
For example; a local gardening company from Cambridge voiced concern about the lack of support for wild bee populations in the local area, and would be willing, if financed properly, to improve the situation. Inspire the Escape would record these local concerns, and then advertise them too potential donors. Thus creating a relationship between those whom, for example are both conscious about the situation facing the wild bee populations can then work together and with others to collectively solve the problem. This can lead to trusted cooperation and communication which would allow fluid movement of direct feedback given from the specific organisation assigned with the objective of improving the given situation and the partnered donors.
The foundation will be completely charity based, and created as not-for-profit trust under common ownership, whereby ownership is held indivisibly rather than in the name of the individual holders. The foundation will also provide optional administrative guidance for both conscious donors and workers on local and direct channeling of finance towards projects, those created with the intention of making real positive changes in their local community.
The foundations optional recommendations will help insure any finance is used in the most conscious, socially economic and environmentally sustainable manner possible.
The following £1500 will kick-start the wonderful amount of planning which is required in hosting an event such as a global convention, never-the-less in combining this with the Conscious Foundations promotional event we can "kill two birds with one stone", as they say. It can be an event, in its true definition "a thing that happens or takes place, especially one of importance."
Cambridge Convention on Freedom, Equality, Sovereignty and Consciousness
We created the idea of holding the 2015 Cambridge Convention as a flag-ship event where the conscious community from all disciplines, artists, scientists, musicians, comedians, archaeologists, you name it, can come together to converse! If you can make it to Cambridge in England to share your art, wisdom or knowledge about any of the four convention topics, then it would be awesome if you could make it to the 2015 Cambridge Convention!
Main Convention Topic: Self-Empowerment
- Freedom - Are we free?
- Individual Sovereignty - What is a person & the birth bond certificate?
- Gender Equality - Understanding Gender.
- Consciousness and History - Patterns over time.
Here is small list of public figures that we would love to get involved: Marco Tempest, Diane Bouzebiba, John Harris, Amanda Afiya, George Monbiot, Frode Gjerløw, Graham Handcock, Gomel G Lazaro, Kathryn Porter, Elliot Hulse, Alexander Gimring, Ann Cadman, Jack Johnson, Joe Rogan, Tommy Almond, Prince Ea, Progressive Era, Russell Brand, Joanne Martinelle, Pervin Todiwala, Simon Amstel, Frank Medrano, Tim Shieff or Dan Hardy.

To illustrate further why we believe the Inspire the Escape Conscious Foundation can use cooperation rather than corporation in our financial interactions; Below is a passage from the book "Cards Vs Humanity".
The goal is to go 100% ad-free by next year and become 100% member supported. Would you be willing to make a monthly pledge? A few dollars per month times the power of a few thousand awesome people will get us to where we need to be. Click here to join.
If you'd prefer to make a one-time donation, you can do that here. Many thanks!
