Learning to face the problems of this sick society

With our new model of education, growth and development based on critical thinking
and freedom from any authority.

Barletta (Puglia), Italy | 25/11 - 07/12 2019


What is The Ark Lab?

Two weeks where 20 pioneers, from all over the world, are gathering together to seriously challenge their life assumptions and the ultimate causes of this “profoundly sick society”.

During this journey we are going to discuss the basic principles of society and our existence, the logic principles underlying our life and our society. We will discuss not like schoolboys, not you taking one side and I taking the other, which is all right in colleges, in debating societies, but to discuss in order to find out by ourselves, together, what is worthwhile, what is true and false, not whether you are right or I am wrong.

The aim is to work together to discover if and how we could build up the premises for a new model of education, growth and development based on critical thinking and freedom from any authority.

Why join us?

“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society”

(Jiddu Krishnamurti)

    • Because we have built this society, we are this society, we are responsible for it.
    • Because it seems that we live in contradiction, all of us, literally, we say one thing and we do another thing, and we don’t even realize it.
    • Because we are too frightened, too lazy, to even dare to admit that there must to be more to life than what we are currently experiencing.
    • Because we are tired of all the institutions , experts, teachers, gurus and the others devoted to organize our life maybe in 10 steps!
    • Because we want to destroy within ourselves all the stupidities that society has built.
    • Because we know, deeply inside us, that we have to face the most difficult question in order to face this tremendous problem: what is the meaning of my life?

What I will get

    • A clearer view of the deepest an rooted problems of our society and of our life.
    • A clearer view of how to balance my life and to contribute to a better society.
    • I will learn the importance of knowing how to question my beliefs and my opinions however deep and rooted can be.
    • I will learn the art of listening and of dialogue.
    • I will learn how to engage a lifelong challenge to be free from any authority both externally and internally.
    • I will be part of a pioneristic project which is willing to change the paradigm of education and innovation.
    • I will be part of a community of serious people which are going to be true friends for their whole life.

The Program

“Many who are self-taught far excel the doctors, masters, and bachelors of the most renowned universities”

(Ludwig von Mises)

Here we are not going into the details of the program for the simple reason that we don’t need to.

The Program is going to be like the first step of a new journey, which is our own life, by definition personal and subjective, where we will get the tools, the principles, to start questioning all our certainties, to start questioning if we could be free from any authority, externally and internally.

This program is a free inspiration from the life time work of the last century great philosophers
Ludwig Von Mises, Friedrich Nietzsche, Jiddu Krishnamurti and Satoshi Nakamoto.

This Program is for you if

    • You see that something is wrong out there in society.
    • You see that something is wrong with your life situation but you don’t know what to do.
    • You are serious, responsible human being, you want to go deeply into this problem but you see that the others don’t.
    • You will take the courage of a completely new approach which could challenge radically all of yours certainties.
    • You will take the risk that this could be just the first step of a long journey which could drastically change your life situation

“The Truth? I don’t know who I am, I am like you, a human being who understood that all things done so far in his life had no deep meaning and that has decided to start from scratch.
It is something which was deep inside of me for a long time. The internet bubble, the Great Recession, the obsession with the writings of Ludwig von Mises and Jiddu Krishnamurti, the pain of witnessing the infinite decadence of my country made things clear to me! I had to act! I had to do it for myself and follow my deepest soul. By doing this I made the Ark lab Project, here, in Puglia, the wonderful place of my birth. This is the natural evolution of my last experience on education with Exosphere where in almost five years we did twelve programs in Chile, Brazil and Hungary with more than 400 students from 60 countries.”
