John Muir Project: My Lithium and Zyprexa Withdrawal Towards an Appalachian Trail Hike Next Week

It’s Facebook official, I changed my “about” to “Former MDiv Student at Princeton Theological Seminary.” — feeling hopeful.  

I added this text to my Work and Education section:

“An attempt to explore the limits of “normalization” via careful examination of environment-gene interactions in the mind and brain is necessary. John Muir’s theology and the psychogeography art of the Situationist International are inspirations for the project. I seek to collaborate with Out-of-Hand-Theater to construct a participatory play to enact the principles en mass. I am also working on a book to succinctly summarize my experiences with the project. For now, my blog is the best place to find up to date information on the project. Find the blog address in “contact information: website” of my Facebook page.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
