This site is virtually unknown to most photographers who visit Mono Lake, but I can I can show you where it is when I lead a seminar there next June. The timing should be perfect to catch fields of wild iris blooming, the ghost town of Bodie, hot springs, and hopefully the Tioga Pass area, Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park, and Devil's Postpile before the Summer crowds arrive! I found this spot while researching a guide to photography at Mono Lake (I'm still working on the draft). This has forced me as i am sure it has you, to question life from the standpoint of astrology, genetics, behaviorism, sociology, psychology etc. These analysis's are done in search of an answer for why we are so much alike. It is all yours, but I should warn you that it doesn't do anyone any actual good no matter how many late nights you waste on it. As a special gift to you, just for having been born with even a shadowy resemblance to my messianic genetic coding, I offer you a seat in my future ruling council.*(You must of course arrange and pay for your own Cryogenic storage.)Anyone who makes it back will also be given a free yogurt. As stated above, I offer you the knowledge that your civilizations will probably collapse shortly after they learn of my demise and therefore in the ensuing chaos, my possessions will not be of great importance to those who have received them. my body) undergo the following series of ceremonial and medical procedures after an official statement of death given by a qualified physician. It might be a good idea not to load the weapons until this point. It will connected to a global network devoted to operatingthe mechanical, electrical. You can eat your puny-human foods, like egg sandwiches on a roll with cheese and sausage.
I've been driving by the lake for decades, but while researching the book I got to know Mono Lake's story. We are both architects, we both see the world as contemplative outsiders and we are the two greatest dancers in the world. political, and economic infrastructure of every city and suburb in the world. You can have any delicious beverage you choose, it will be prepared by one of my beautiful sexy models!! The doctors will need to get me up and running quickly. Ok, So if you are reading this then the world as you know it has ceased to function in a recognizable fashion.
Urban planners are allowing growth that will drive state's population to grow by tens of millions more by 2020, while climate scientists are forecasting the demise of the Sierra snowpack and the dessication of California's lands due to global climate change. In fact the white house of my rule will look slightly less neo-classical.
California's lack of growth controls are going to cause enormous water shortage and social issues, and the knee-jerk reactions to pursue the dwindling water resources for residential and agricultural use will fuel environmental disasters. The new architecture will have more of a shiny, stay-the-fuck-away, feel to it. All light will come from the fiber-optic treated exterior skin used to photo-voltaically power the hydrogen fuel cells and simultaneously light the sleek sexy interiors.
Los Angeles has already drained Owens Lake completely dry (it's now a dust bowl), and the mighty Colorado River is now pumped dry before it reaches the Gulf of California.

So i am posting a copy of my Last Will in preparation for the unlikely possibility that my enemies penetrate my defenses and somehow overpower me. The robots have been programmed to kill you on site. Michelle, as a wedding present to you and Murat I give you the Atlantic undersea base. In fact I kind of regret building it in the first place but I was out late one night and when i got home I was sort of drunk and I guess it seemed like a good idea at the time, sooo... I therefore can not envision a situation in which you will be alive if I am dead, so I am not leaving you anything. You can either take a sedentary and consequently defensive approach, establishing a semi-permanent water source and agricultural life, or you can become a nomad scavenging, attacking and foraging whatever you come across. The sedentary approach, if employed successfully, will allow you to lead a life of moderate comfort while the nomadic system offers you the opportunity to plunder which is equally important.This would require a force of human or cybernetic soldiers existing well beyond the scope of the worlds wealthiest military entities. They are armed with weapons such as, laser beam eyes, machine gun arms, and the ability to crush and stop your useless future right out of metaphysical existence. We have had some trouble lately with our hyper intelligent dolphins so you will have a bit of cleanup work to do once you take it over. Below are some simple rules to the establishment of both. Do not wait for the dust of the apocalypse to clear before you join or start a settlement of humans.Home to 2 million birds that use the brine shrimp and alkali flies as a critical food source, the lake is a critical breeding and migration stop.Approximately 90% of California's gulls are hatched and raised here.Water diversions since 1941 to feed development in the desert suburbs surrounding Los Angeles have drawn down the lake significantly.As the water level dropped, the lake has grown in salinity to become 3 times saltier than the ocean, and the population of alkali flies has plummeted.Los Angeles has already drained Owens Lake completely dry (it's now a dust bowl), and the mighty Colorado River is now pumped dry before it reaches the Gulf of California. Earth's gravity will eventually kick in and the two planetary bodies will collide. You must however seal off my room, curate it and once a year allow visitors in for a modest price. This simple guide will provide the techniques and strategies that will keep you one step ahead of your post-apocalyptic competitors.Urban planners are allowing growth that will drive state's population to grow by tens of millions more by 2020, while climate scientists are forecasting the demise of the Sierra snowpack and the dessication of California's lands due to global climate change. The details of this year's trip are secret of course, but trust me when i tell you that it will be dangerous. You get the robot guarded penthouse on Central park west. Oh yeah, they may "resist" at first so see #2 above. This information was of course something I hoped would never reach the public. Steph, You are going to be with me on this trip so it is likely that if someone tries to kill me, I will have used your body as a shield. step one: mapping out your future.there are two possible ways to survive in this new world and neither of them are pretty, but you will have to very quickly make your choice.I remind you, as always, that this will is little more than a prescient announcement of the collapse of civilization, since the economic and political structures of the world will more than likely implode after the news of my demise is leaked to the public. You may refer to it when in need of answers about life, strategic operations, or connect four. This will of course require that you are both frozen. You will not be able to access this money until you have given birth to three male children. We are not looking for meteorologists, microbiologists, agronomists, ethologists, cytologists sociologist, ect.So in addition to my will, I have provided a short survival guide detailing how to live through and possibly prosper in the impending anarchy. I have alerted my Cryonics division, and on your respective 30th birthdays' you will be forcefully put to sleep. After the birth of your third son, who must be named William you may receive it in full. Nor are we seeking any academic fields dependant on technologically expensive equipment. Like physicists, chemists, geologists, epidemiologists and this is the big one here, doctors, doctors, doctors.
