While scinetists have pondered for centuries over the meaning of the European Stonehenge a similar monument has appeared in the United States of America. Intended to kickstart a post-anthropocene society, the guidestones offer lessons in 8 modern languages as well as 4 ancient ones to help any future beings to decipher their meaning. Hoping to teach knowledge learned through great trial, the stones offer simple points of knowledge, many focusing on ecological principles.
- Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
- Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
- Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.
While it often seems there isn’t a great hope for mankind in the face of great ecological change, in fact the stones seem to suggest we’ve thrown in the towel, the Guidestones direct an optimistic future where perhaps one day our descendants will live in an ecological utopia
