Save the Humans – Call for Quotes

We call upon you, dear readers, to participate in a new publication from the Next Nature Network: SAVE THE HUMANS!.

We are becoming increasingly intimate with the machines that constantly control and watch the way we live. How can the growing world population of more than 7 billion people create a humane life for everyone? Let’s find the errors and the holes in the technosphere that will give us space for free and creative thinking. Let’s use the brain pixels that are not taken yet. And Save the Humans!

We invite you to make a contribution by submitting quotes that question the autonomy of mankind in the digital computer era, and study the future of the independent creative spirit.

A Next Nature Christmas Present

With the holiday shopping season in full swing, Next Nature comes to your aid. The award winning In Vitro Meat Cookbook makes the perfect Christmas present from a meat lover to a vegetarian, or from a vegetarian to a meat lover.

Starting today we are offering free worldwide shipping and gift-wrapping with the Corporate Animals paper included.

Using the format of the cookbook as a storytelling medium, the In Vitro Meat Cookbook is a visually stunning exploration of the new “food cultures” lab-grown meat might create. It approaches lab-grown meat not just from a design and engineering perspective, but also from a societal and ethical one.
The cookbook features 45 lab grown meat recipes that might be on your plate one day. Meat paint, revived dodo wings, meat ice cream, cannibal snacks, steaks knitted like scarves and see-through sushi grown under perfectly controlled conditions. Though you can’t cook the recipes just yet, they’ve all been developed with strict culinary rigor. Because, before we can decide if we will ever be willing to eat meat from the lab, we need to explore the food culture it will bring us.

This year, give the ultimate conversation starter on the future of meat as a present! Shop here

Coating Cola moves beyond any existing light product. This drink is not only calorie free; thanks to the fat blocking nano coating the beverage leaves on you intestine, all abundant fats from other consumptions will be blocked.
