Project ALTER MAN 47 is the visionary voyage of an alt-fueled ship on a unique mission to circulate *alt-tech+culture* around the world; Borne of a dream & guided by astonishing Synchronicity to include an ancient Alchemical process within humankind’s emerging potential to truly change. The AM47 crew aim to further generate Synchronicity and help alter earth’s destiny by circumnavigating the globe to exalt *The AM47 Pentaform : A psycho-cosmic pyramid crowning Gaia*.
[ AM47 was conceived in early 2007 and has been evolving ever since. There’s a lot to take in here and much of it needs editorial polish. I’d recommend scroll-scanning through some pages after this one (esp. the 5 destination pages) to get a better sense of the content and the scope. There is metaphysical content ahead. Please don’t dismiss this out of hand. The core project is perfectly tangible and relevant to this real world. The occult angle is for those who recognize it: No *Belief* Required. This is a true story. ]
The Alchemical Great Work has remained an elusive spiritual mystery. It is the core of an evolutionary metaphysical experiment developing right now. Central to the Great Work are the 4 Classical Elements and the 7 Inner Planets. Four locations in perfect formation around the globe are naturally and profoundly manifesting characteristics of each of the 4 Elements. (This Elemental pattern is found no where else on the planet and is in the correct ordering of Alchemical transformation.) A voyage is being organized to
and link these locations in order to generate, observe, dedicate and send these magical forces into Awareness by completing *The AM47 Pentaform: A psycho-cosmic pyramid crowning Gaia*. The cycle of project AM47 annually begins again on 02 Sep 2013 (& 01 Sep 2014, etc.).
[ The video is a very rough draft of a 47 second vid encapsulating the Alchemical mission of AM47. Another vid is being made that details the more tangible elements of the project like the ship, the crew, the course, the ports, the alt-fuel, the alt-culture, the alt-tech, the Maker Faired build, the Burning Manly design and content of the interior/exterior, the sister projects, the sponsors, the crowdfunding, budget, etc., etc.

“What you are about to read is the groundwork for an evolution in broadcast and feature infotainment. Alter Man is the working title for a visionary media project so original and evocative it could be described as The Amazing Race meets Nova and Myth Busters. In fact, an apt subtitle for the “Reality” segment of Alter Man would be MYTH HUNTERS. As intriguing as this concept is, the projects “pseudo-documentary” & multi-medium elements are even more innovative. Utilizing free-role-play of open scripted scenarios inspired by a true life voyage of discovery, Alter Man promises to produce episodic metafiction with an X-Files meets Jacques Cousteau explosive potential.”

Antithetical Spark And Dream
It was mid-late 2006 when I was struggling to understand what my next creative move should be. I was considering Burning Man, yet how I would probably never venture out to it’s dusty desert location due to my chronic bronchitis. This project actually grew out of my desire to bring the culture and spectacle of Burning Man into places where I could enjoy it as well.
