What would you do with your land?

2 years, 2 months ago

If all the land on earth was to be divided between everyone on it, we would get about 4 acres. Now taking into account that some land is uninhabitable, let’s just say its 2 acres.

So, out of interest, what would you do with your 2 acres?

I would ask that ‘my land’ be very high up on a mountain, away from light pollution. And I would spend every available minute every night looking into the universe.

Looking at the billions of stars, imagining how many other sentient beings are out there. Looking at the development of new stars and observing the destruction of others.

And finally I would remember my acres of land have been given by the universe, to make the most of them, to allow us to live freely, to educate, entertain, to laugh and cry, to love and hate, wonder, be ourselves, to enjoy wonder, to think wild thoughts, discover anything we can imagine, and finally to die, right before the universe takes the land away again to be reborn.

I’d sell it to travel.

Hmm…maybe I’d want to be on a coast, or have a beach of some kind. Or some forest space, or a big garden like the ones that have hedgemazes. Or maybe I’d like to use the land to set up my own food and electricity source to avoid dependency/jobs/that whole caboodle.

@piptherational, That sounds pretty wonderful! You’d also get more than a few acres …as I factored mountains into the uninhabitable.

@theskafish, Yeah I’d use mine so that I was able to be self sustaining with food and electricity too.

@beyond, That would definitely be tempting.

THats a lot of land. I would probably just invite all friends and families who want to parttty and blast some music, get some booze, party it up! for the first day… maybe excluding the family… just friends, old friends new friends, random people i thought were a good time. invite them all and party! then maybe for the rest i would just want to spend it with my soulmate, and just in peace with a blanket beneath us and like the guy mentioned before just staring at the start when nightfall came about, and during the day enjoying each others company building a house, and other things we may need

Definitely earth ship. Psychoactive garden. Chemistry lab. Green house for exotic crazy plants. Pond. And a big wall to let others and myself do graffiti.
