Here's what we have so far......
Katalepsis - A Truth From Which Nothing Can Dislodge Us!
Katalepsis (Greek: κατάληψις, "grasping") in Stoic philosophy, meant comprehension. To the Stoic philosophers, katalepsis was an important premise regarding one's state of mind as it relates to grasping fundamental philosophical concepts, and it represents the Stoic solution to the problem of the criterion.
My personal take is that we are in a unique position to grasp the concept of the burn, its truth and essence, and transfer it anywhere.
The Moon is a state of mind, visible to all regardless of position, only depending on time - meaning we can celebrate the concept, rather than the coordinates in orbit.
We are all energy and are constantly interacting with the energy around us. Many times the energy and thoughts are different than our own which creates conflict. When our energy is in harmony, we are the most content and happiest. Our trip To The Moon each year is one of the most meaningful times of our lives because we come together, believing in 10 + 1 principles and choose to live in harmony. We are seek out Harmonious Vibrations.
Ever look closely at the Yin and Yang symbol? It is the perfect circle that is motion. It shows the energy that is in perfect duality. This is very much at the heart of our principles. The happiest moments in our life is when we are living in harmony with the world around us. At first glance, we see that our principles seem like good suggestions on living, but what makes them so beautiful is that they are like the yin and yang. Each principle may seem in conflict with another but in actuality, this take and give creates a masterpiece. For example we are to be self reliant but a member of a community. This give and take creates a harmonious vibration that allows us to not only be our best self, but be our best community.
At To The Moon each year, we celebrate the Harmonious Vibrations we create. We take this energy out into the world. We strive to make the default world a better place, such as raising money for the local fire department or creating a bench and planting a tree in one of Sneedville’s parks. In our lives we do this every day by saying a kind word or smiling at a stranger. How do you create Harmonious Vibrations in the default world and on To The Moon?
Synesthesia is a perceptual phenomenon where multiple senses are blended, such as tasting colors or seeing sounds. The word synesthesia comes from two Greek words, syn (together) and aisthesis (perception). Therefore, synesthesia literally means "joined perception."
Imagine that the color purple vibrates and feels warm, or has a sound like thunder or waves crashing. Maybe the sound of laughter is pink, or strawberries taste like Beethoven's 9th.
I feel that this could open up a world of possibilities as far as theme camps, art projects, etc. I believe that this theme would encourage attendees to explore their senses, while finding a way to connect channels that normally wouldn't be connected.
EVOLUTION ... self explanatory and can have oh so many meanings
MANIFESTATION ... spread the word that WE decide what happens next and we can make whatever kind of magical place we want to <3
MYTHOLOGY .. the idea of focusing the burn as a whole towards a theme or Mythological History sounds absolutely enchanting and invites ALOT of various ways to participate with said theme but I do like the above two more..
