Element 8 examines ideas, opinions and possibilities we have named it such for the atomic number for oxygen which is one of the fundamental elements necessary for the existence of human life. One of the most important aspects that has driven us forward as a society has been our ability to harness our environment for our own uses. This is a trait that we alone as human beings have achieved out of all life as we know it. No other life on Earth has adapted their environment and it has made us the dominant form of life on Earth.
An idea can be the most dangerous thing, we will never all agree absolutely with each other about what is the best way to do things. However the only way to truly grow as individuals, and as a society is to explore different ideas and how they can be used to make life better. Element 8 explores ideas and aims to achieve an educated and logical approach to how these ideas can make the world better.
We all have our opinions, just like we all have an armpit, some of them stink and some of them don’t. The fact is we have 7 billion people and counting living on a finite lump of rock hurtling through space at approximately 107,000 kilometres per hour. It is absolutely essential that we explore a variety of ideas and possibilities that will aid in solving real problems related to how we continue as a species.
That is the fundamental question Element 8 is all about ‘What are the ideas and possibilities that will aid us to survive and thrive?’ Yet it is just our opinion!
