I started developing an ambitious and unusual project in 2006 that has since come to heavily involve both the number 47 and synchronicity in general. Here are the basics of the project:
The discovery of 4 points around the globe (+ a 5th point at the North Pole) that have a distinctive resonance with the "4 Classical Elements" and are set in the sacred geometry of a pyramid shape.
And then to document the journey of a crew on an alt-fueled vessel to those 4 corners of the earth via the 7 seas, over the course of one year, adhering to the schedule/cycle of the fixed signs of the sidereal zodiac and noting the astrological effects (or lack thereof) of the "7 Holy Planets" on the crew, people and events along the way.
A big part of the story is developing what exactly that crew decides to do on those dates at those points, and the kinds of things that the project as a whole intends to achieve. If the synchronicity inherent in the
project thus far is any indication, then the story should basically write itself, so long as we, the crew, show up. Something like a miniature Burning Man with music, art, ritual, etc., except elementally appropriate to each location, would be a good example/place to start.
Experimental, ambitious, expensive, dangerous, mad and yet magical are words that might begin to describe this project. I've been contacted by my first official news source about doing a story on AM47, which will begin to get it some publicity and searchability.
But due to the sheer scope and arcane nature of the project, I'm having real trouble presenting it, even to folks who are interested, let alone to potential benefactors. Perhaps I should just start with a "Here It Is" approach, instead of telling the story of how it came to be, like I have it presented now. Have any of you had a look at the AM47 page lately? Is it confusing/overwhelming/lacking??
improving it over the holidays, so please let me know if you have any ideas to make it better, or would like to become involved.
And business plans, professional websites, social media upkeep, video/animations, PR, editorial/organizational and all the rest of the things required to do this right are simply beyond my patience and abilities to tackle alone. If I had the funds to hire a team, this thing would've been done yesterday. The scheduled 02 Sep 2011 San Francisco Point of Fire launch date didn't happen, so we're aiming for the next cycle which starts on 01 Sep 2012.
Thanks for your time, I know that's a lot to take in, but I don't know of any other way to proceed.
