Discovered on Inspiration Island
Bamboodu Garden of Delights to be unveiled at Burning
Monday August 19, 2002. Today, the world-renowned Mind Shaft Society
announces a major breakthrough in cultural anthropology with the
recent discovery of the Bamboodu Garden of Delights, an underwater
site located on Inspiration Island in the South Pacific.
been searching for the legendary Babmoodus for years", said
Mind Shaft anthropologist Dr. Fabio, one of the first witnesses
to this discovery. "The Garden of Delights reveals in full
detail the remarkable story of this advanced civilization."
Ancient artifacts unearthed last week suggest the Bamboodus had
developed an advanced inspiration ritual in their sacred garden
sanctuary. "This ingenious culture gained new wisdom through
collaborative painting, drumming and storytelling activities,"
said Dr. Fabio. " We are now restoring this ritual site so
that everyone can benefit from their inspirational power."
The Mind Shaft Society plans to unveil its findings from Inspiration
Island at Burning Man 2002, a major cultural science fair held the
week of August 26 in Black Rock Desert, Nevada.
The Mind Shaft
Society's most significant breakthrough is the discovery of a giant
octopus that has been living in the Garden of Delights for nearly
a century. "The Bamboodus relied on the Octopus Oracle for
all important decisions." said Dr. Really, chairman of the
Mind Shaft Society. "They worshipped him as lord of the underworld,
and master of their collective soul." The OctopusOracle is
indeed a bewildering creature, and displays unusual signs of intelligence.
Mind Shaft scientists believe that it actually feeds on creative
interaction with other life forms.

lead botanist at the Garden of Delights site. "The Bamboodus
were expert gardeners and grew giant hybrid flowers that provided
shade and spiritual nourishment to their people." Dozens of
plant species survived the Great Flood that submerged Inspiration
Island last century, after the Age of Irrational Exuberance. Now
underwater, flowers in the Garden of Delights still flourish at
the base of the island's volcano.
building worldwide about this groundbreaking development. "This
could revolutionize the way we share knowledge for centuries to
come," said Dr. Rheingold, a leading authority in cultural
anthropology and head of the Brainstorms Institute. "The Bamboodus
figured out an art of living that we could all learn from."
