Just "Imagine Weaving The Dream!"
Penny McManigal 1990

Herein are the "imaginings" of this "Cultural Creative' with relation to a vision of the possible celebrations for "the Dawning of the Ages, 2000!"

Picture this,it is one minute after midnight on the morning of January 1, 2000. As the clock ticks New Zealand will be among the first countries to "reach over the imaginal line" and touch our "future"! Radios and televisions around the world will simultaneously ALL play John Lennon's "Imagine". People around the world will stop to listen. Wherever they are they will know that "the future" will soon be coming to them as well. Be patient, the hands of the clock are moving the future to us all! What kind of a future do we want?

In the meantime, we the inhabitants of this planet will all be watching the same image, via satellite television, as 2000 A.D. comes to New Zealand (or?). As Jean Hudon has already imagined and shared with us from his "mind's eye" we will now see this unfold in "real time" before our very eyes; natives from every land circling around a giant "eternal flame", each holding a small burning torch. The music comes to a crescendo as each native representative comes forward to add his/her flame to the central eternal flame. The haunting music of "Torchbearers" can be heard now. This "shared air time" is perhaps short in viewed time, but it is also the "early dawn" of more to come on this subject throughout the year!

Now it is July 1, 2000 and we are halfway through the new year and also halfway to the real beginning of the year of the New Millennium, Jan. 1, 2001. Picture either Washington D.C. and the famous Mall of green lawn stretching between the Washington Monument and The Lincoln Memorial. In the center is the eternal flame, whose light has been transferred from New Zealand to Washington D.C. (or substitute The Coliseum in Los Angeles or somewhere else appropriate for this event). Making a large circle (hundreds of feet wide) around the Eternal Flame are 187 (or whatever the number of recognized countries on this planet) brightly colored "double pillars" symbolizing all males and females from every land in "co equal interdependence". Between these many brightly colored "country pillars" are many more non colored pillars. The effect of this Sacred Circle is not unlike Stonhendge or the "standing stones" of old.

Around the circumference of the circle are piles of scarf- like pieces of material which have been donated by people from all over the world and assembled here for The Great "Imagine Weaving The Dream!" ceremony. These lengths of cloth might have been either elegantly woven, hand painted, or be as simple as a piece of some one's T Shirt. But the important element is that the offerings will all have been donated by individuals from around the planet!. (This announcement, the invitation and instructions of how to participate would have been disseminated around the world 2 years before this event. Either the member states of the United Nations or the country chapters of the Red Cross might become the "receiving chapters" for the donated cloth from each country). In addition to donating a length of cloth (4-5 feet long?) the "gifter" would be also invited to add a one page story, if desired, about the gift (e.g. who gifted it, where it came from, and anything else pertinent to this person's story). Various camera persons and documentaryists would have followed the process from its implementation several year before, creating a visual, written and verbal history of this planetary unification of heart-fullness.
The materials from each country would eventually be shipped to a warehouse near the site for the anticipated ceremony.

Throughout this unfolding ceremony of several days in length (suggested time is June 24-July 4, 2000) there would be a schedule of music and dance performances from every country of the world! All visitors to this site would be invited to actually participate in the "Imagine Weaving The Dream!" ceremony. Each visitor would be invited go to any pile among this "world's cloth", separated by countries initially, select an "offering" and then step up to the " Pillared Sacred Circle" and actually weave this piece of cloth into that structure, (thereby actually helping to create the Whole Cloth "seamless fabric" architectual structure, our shared and unified vision of a healing future)!

Once the structure has been completely woven the result will be a very deeply touching symbol for all the world to see (all of this of course being recorded live and played to the television viewers around the world!). WE ARE THE WORLD, and this IS our symbol of Unity which we have made with our own hands, and woven together into something of far greater value than each piece of cloth!

When the ceremony has finally been finished all the remaining piles of pieces of cloth will be mixed together (like a casserole) and divided back up into the equal numbers of the recognized countries in the world. These "Whole Cloth" packages will then be returned to each participating country to "seed" future creative art projects, as will be visioned and determined by each country! Therefore the process will have completed its full circle, having begun its journey in each country, been shared with "the whole world" and finally the resulting "world cloth" package returning to each country of origin! The same camera -documentaries and written materials would be continued through this point as well, symbolically recording the desire of the people of this planet to live in peace with one another.

This, in very brief form, is a re/design of the Proposal of "Weave A Dream Of Whole Cloth" which I submitted to the 1996 Olympic Committee in Atlanta, Georgia. The Advisory Board for this idea included Madame Jehan Sedat of Egypt, Ray Bradbury (Futurist and well known Science Fiction writer), Dr. Jean Houston (philosopher, futurist and evacatuer of "The Possible Human", and Sergei Plekhanov, physicist and member of The Russian Academy of Sciences, as well as myself, Penny McManigal, Transformational Peace Artist. The proposal was withdrawn for technical reasons at the suggestion of Ray Bradbury, who suggested that we wait for a time when this interwoven, integrated world art creation could be truly appreciated for the depth of the symbolic vision that it offered to the planet. So be it!

Now, is there anyone who is interested to help these visions become a reality??????? Please send any ideas or comments regarding the "Imagine Weaving The Dream!" project to me at (PaxWeave@aol.com) . If you have not already done so, please visit my website at http://www.bizmom.com/peace (moved to http://www.ashlandweb.com/millennium.weave/index.html in 1998) for more information on my background in "the art of peace". This idea of "Imagine Weaving The Dream!" belongs to US ALL, as envisioned and "birthed" here by its creator and visionary artist, Penny McManigal, ( 1990). However it will most assuredly need many midwives if it is ever to be "born"!

Now if you will, fast forward to Jan.1, 2001 and witness the further "Dawning of the Ages" with John Lennon's "Imagine" once again being played at one minute after midnight! And then the television cameras from around the world will begin to play 24 hours of a "visual feast" from many of the wonderful, unforgettable moments that humankind had created in the past 365 days! "Feast on the Possible!" Just "Imagine!", we will never be the same again.
