WHY I SHOULD COME

Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye.
(Helen Keller)

The Ark Lab is designed to build a community of serious people willing to challenge the status quo and, following the words of the philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti, the deepest problems of this profoundly sick society.

We want to be clear from the beginning, we have no pretension to solve the problems of the world or even to fully cover in eight weeks such complex materials as biohacking, smart manufactoring, praxeology and metaphysics, our goal is to create a place, free and open, where you can start a long journey with other people who, like you, feel that to change this world you must first change yourself.

The journey will start on the 30th September 2019 in the old city of Molfetta, Puglia, in the heart of Mediterranean Sea.

Reasons to Come

  • We have a great team of Mentors that are humble and serious as well as eager to do and to learn with the students.
  • The program is going to be truly creative, this is the main reason why we don’t know how it will be developed in details, we don’t want to know for the simple reason that creativity means going into the unknown. The only thing that we do know is that there is a great location, great energy, serious mentors, students and visiting fellows.
  • We are not going to passively transfer information from the teacher to a class of students, we are going to do together, we are going to share experiences together, to “learn how to learn” in such confused world, to learn how to trust yourself, the ultimate authority.
  • It is a unique experience and aimed towards the world of tomorrow. Topics and workshops are all aimed to prepare for a still forming future. To journey down this road you must bring both a sense of adventure and love for discovery.
  • None of us at The Ark Lab pretends to be who knows who teaches those who do not know. We all have a piece of knowledge and when we discover that it works, it is our duty to share it. We are convinced that every person we meet on our journey is bound to teach us something and for this reason we believe that this meeting will be important for us and for you, and we will be happy to meet you.
  • You are going to learn by hacking biology and by making things in a full equipped laboratories paying attention also to the importance of the implementation of the exponential technologies like blockchain and AI. You will work trying to find solutions coming from real problems that affect the local economy.
  • You are going to learn how to use and build upon technologies in order to develop your own project, a serious project, a project which is going to solve a serious problem.
  • You are going to learn praxeology, which is logic, critical thinking, the basic understanding of the logic of human action, an essential tool to understand not only yourself but economics and society.
  • In what we have called “metaphysics” you are going to learn how to observe yourself, deeply, truly, this is essential tool to find all the energy to do great things with your life.
  • You are going to be part of a strong community of like-minded and serious people from all over the world.   
  • We developed this program following the great model of Exosphere but with the addition of praxeology and metaphysics.
  • We are building up a permanent lab in Puglia and benefiting from the weather, history, culture, nature and food of this region.
  • We are going to select only serious students aligned with the deep philosophy of the Ark Lab.
