"It is a fairly involved meditative practice, which seems to reveal very personal, and sometimes profound insights to the seasoned practitioner. Stone Balance for me is, in a sense, my Yoga, perhaps in the most literal way i can imagine. It is about dissolving the duality of my self and environment. I must BEcome the balance!

This is a short film made to demonstrate the collaborative movie 'Waking Up'. Waking Up is a movie in the making about a positive future for Humanity. And hopefully, Humanity will contribute in making it real.
The film is about Ben, a cancer ridden wealthy businessman who freeze himself down in 2012, in the hope that humanity once might be able to thaw him up and cure his disease, so that he can continue to enjoy and expand his empire.
In the year 2112 he is awakened again. The world has gone through massive changes towards the positive. Both technology and human values has developed into a whole new world, positive in all aspects for humanity.
One of the aspects is that money and property is gone, and people do things for other reasons than hoarding wealth. The new economic system is an emergent one called a resource based economy (http://www.theresourcebasedeconomy.com/). Waking Up is about Ben's experiences in this world and the difficulties he faces in waking up to this new reality.
In this short film, Ben is walking in the woods with his newly acquainted guide, Aweena. He has only been awake for a few days, after several weeks of curing and restituting his body while he was asleep. He is a bit confused, and can't really understand what has happened. He feels somewhat attracted to this new world and to Aweena, but at the same time he has trouble believing it is real.
Waking Up is an 'open source' movie where others can contribute. The website for the movie is http://www.wakingupmovie.com. It is a movie about a positive future for Humanity and hopefully, Humanity will contribute in writing it and making it real.
Many people have gained interest in this the last few months, and there is now a thriving community of more or less experienced writers working on the script through Google Docs. Go to the mentioned website for more info.
