Humanity is writing the next chapter of the human story. It will be either sustainable or unsustainable. If it is to be sustainable, it seems to make sense that a truly comprehensive and holistic approach will be the fastest path to success. One Community is forwarding this through open source sustainability solutions combining food, energy, and housing with ecocentric models for fulfilled living, education, sustainable economics and earth stewardship. We call this living and creating for The Highest Good of All:

One Community’s physical location will forward this movement as the first of many self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built around the world. This is the November 1st, 2015 edition (#136) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:
Here is the bullet-point list of this last week’s design and progress discussed in detail in the video above:
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @1:55
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:06
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:05
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @5:19
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @6:38
One Community is doing our part writing the next chapter of the human story through Highest Good education that is for all ages, applicable in any environment, adaptable to individual needs, far exceeds traditional education standards, and more fun for both the teachers and the students:
This last week the core team transferred the final 50% of the written content for the Emotional States Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. This lesson plan is purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Emotional States.”
We additionally completed and added the first 50% of the mindmap for the Emotional States Lesson Plan to the webpage. You can see that mindmap here:
Behind the scenes, we also wrote the first 1/2 of the Fall Lesson Plan, bringing the behind-the-scenes written part for that to 50% complete.
One Community is doing our part writing the next chapter of the human story through Highest Good food that is more diverse, more nutritious, locally grown and sustainable, and part of our open source botanical garden model to support and share bio-diversity:
This last week the core team began organizing and editing a more streamlined version of our Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan page behind the scenes. We are approximately 10% complete with the behind-the-scenes remodeling of that page.
We also added three additional recipes from Sandra Sellani (Vegan Chef and author of What’s Your BQ?) to the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan – These recipes are: AB&J Waffle Sandwiches, Pasta Fagioli, and Autumn Salad with Pumpkin Vinaigrette.
One Community is doing our part writing the next chapter of the human story through Highest Good housing that is artistic and beautiful, more affordable, more space efficient, lasts longer, DIY buildable, and constructed with healthy and sustainable materials:
This last week the core team continued what we hope will be the final revision of the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This week included more french drain revisions we’re now coordinating with another partner to update in AutoCAD and edits to the geotextile narrative. This progress brings us to 45% complete with this huge behind-the-scenes rewrite and update.
We also continued posting and formatting the website content for the dome home window and door framing tutorial for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. What you see here is another 20% of this tutorial update bringing us to 55% done with this new page creation.
Last but not least, we completed another revision of the 3-dome cluster design for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This revision included moving the windows and updating the Sketchup, AutoCAD, and Revit files so they all match. The images you see here are from Sketchup.
One Community is doing our part writing the next chapter of the human story through a Duplicable and Sustainable City Center that is LEED Platinum certified/Sustainable, can feed 200 people at a time, provide laundry for over 300 people, is beautiful, spacious, and saves resources, money, and space:
This week the core team continued updating the Sketchup 3-D for the Duplicable City Center. This week we focused on reorganizing the pantry shelving and adding additional food and kitchen accessory details. The images you see here show all our progress in these areas and we’d say we are now 68% done with this 3-D work.
Iris Hsu (Industrial Designer), continued developing and evolving the Pipe Furniture designs. What you see here are the 6th generation concept designs for the chairs for the Duplicable City Center library. These chairs will be able to be converted into tables and are designed to be built out of PVC or recycled plumbing piping.
Behind the scenes Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant) and Lucas Tsutsui da Silva (4th-year Computer Engineering Student), continued developing the Control System connector deck you see in the collage below. Also below is the list of parts Mike will be sending to Lucas so they can both start building, testing, and writing software for the connector deck, and included is a funny picture of Jae pointing to Mike’s connector deck power supply sketch as the three of them test out the drawing function in their collaborative GoogleHangout.
One Community is doing our part writing the next chapter of the human story through a Highest Good society approach to living that is founded on fulfilled living, the study of meeting human needs, Community, and making a difference in the world:
This last week the core team began refining the information from an international team of legal volunteers working on the details for establishing self-replicating teacher demonstration hubs in their respective countries. You can see some of this work here and the team working on this includes help from India, Kenya, Nigeria, and Malaysia.
Oz Czersk (Lawyer Specializing in Trademark and Copyright Law) also helped us file for trademarking of all the aspects of our project that we feel are most important to preserve for our open source and global transformation goals.
