I came upon this website entirely by chance, a would-be Institute for Human Continuity which is working on ‘public preparedness’ when an apparent global cataclysm occurs in December 2012.
The website and the information look legit and, should someone stumble upon it without any further research, they may be convinced.
To me it does’t matter that it’s a hoax, I thought the idea itself is quite (experi)mental.
It boasts about the involvement of world’s leading ‘specialists’ – astronomers, mathematicians, geologists, engineers, physicists, futurists – working collectively on a ‘new idea for the future’, and the preservation of the civilization in some other dimension, another realm.
They have a few initiatives ‘for long-term survival’, such as Operation Safe Heaven, Cultural Preservation, and Human Excellence – which are scenarios for ‘comprehensive colonization’ and ‘escape efforts’. There is also a lottery, oh the joy of gambling away the possibility of a future.
With a tag line ‘ensuring the end is just the beginning’, you can choose to believe if that gives you a peace of mind.
Very ‘Vanilla Sky‘!
