Classes that explain the origins of the company are volcanology, geology, astronomy, astrophysics, thermodynamics, italian language, Dominic de Guzman and Girolamo Savonarola and Pier Giorgio Frassati, etc etc.
Have you ever marvelled at a volcano? Or, if you've never experienced one up close, have you ever enjoyed a bottle of spring water with gas in it, such as Ferrara, Sumol, San Pellegrino or Perrier?
For many centuries, the waters of the San Pellegrino have been considered to have vital properties.
If the moving energy naturally occuring in the spring of water deep in the earth intrigues you, think of a volcano as the light, heat and power of this earthly energy increased by a truly astronomical number. Now this eruption of volcanic energy from the earth into the sky, creating an amazing light show and fireworks, is where the Valanga di Vita gets its name.
The Valangaverse is the best of both virtual and intentional community, both phenomena we hope will continue to grow concomitant with our innate desire as human beings to create communities governed not by bureaucracy but by love.
Volcanos are a good symbol of vitality that is a pure force of life.
It is beautiful and spectacular, yet also fearful and dangerous.
Our original slogan "The valanga di Vita; mobilizing the vitality of goodness" was actually mown down by a huge lava flow of uncontrolled fitality.
When ancient peoples saw volcanoes they naturally assumed that they were Gods.
Now with increased awareness, we can study the mind blowing and incredible energy of volcanoes.
THE TRANSFIGURATION: In a sense, Christ revealed himself, privately to a few friends and not on a worldwide stage, as a Star, a volcano, a source of unfathomable energy.
Every first friday (VENERDI. V IS NOT FOR VIOLENCE NOR VENDETTA NOR VICIOUSNESS, BUT VANGELO ADN VITA.) but especially during the holy season, we should try to be in the presence of the Eucharistic Heart of God for as long as possible.
If we get fed up with him, or do not believe he cares, or even exists, do you think he does not know? His love for us is peaceful and eternal, yet hotter than a volcano. (see volcano text, above; see Eucharist on GEISTE page). And we dont have to "do" anything as a prerequisite, just converse. He's a person, though invisible Why invisible? perhaps, because his light is so bright that we can't see it, like a sound that it so high pitched only a dog can hear.
super tuesday reflection: how im portant is this to us? There is often such a disconnect between reality and image. The uncomfortable truth is that members of our society, living in what is often perceived as "the most successful democracy in history" are unable to vote due to imminent threats and menaces. (not just gabby giffords).
As if this were a medieval theocracy based on misogyny or some other strange phiosophy.
The truth is, this democracy has been successful in many ways, but certainly not universally, and certainly not without huge casualties, from which members of the "privileged class" are by no means exempt. Violence is a pandemic in our world.
The Valangaverse Passport and Guidebook is designed to resemble a standard US passport in that it has 28 pages. It allows you to go anywhere in the valangaverse though. This makes it more wide ranging than any national passport, more like a galactic passport as it were. How should we go about building a galaxy of love out of a volcano of life?
V is for Vita, Vitality, Vim and Vigor and Virtue and Vice and Violence and Vengarse con Vendetta and Valor and Valient and Valentines and Vacation and Varcare con la Visa della Valanga.
Morgoth trolled the Valar to sow division. This is one persons take
on how space travel can change our perspective about geopolitics. There's an ad blocker so the article gets cut off, but it seems to be a good idea as far as it goes.
