Hi all, I am Evyienne Tlá, I am 28 yo and I am an independent researcher and I am looking to join an open minded intentional/eco community and/or help to start one.

I'm a queer man, raw vegan, opera singer, writer, artist of Choctaw and Cherokee descent and I also am a devoted scholar studying our true ancient history.

I currently live in Southern California but would love to leave ASAP! This place is NUTS. It's totally falling apart here.

7 years ago I rediscovered how some large megalithic structures were built and have been working on many different designs for homesteading since.

This rediscovery of megalithic construction is a humongous deal and I cannot stress this enough, this will change literally everything about the way we build architecture for POSTERITY... sooner or later....

No other methods can even compare to the advanced methods our ancestors used to build the structures that we still see today.

Truly, words cannot express how profoundly humbled and honored I am to have been inspired by God to have rediscovered this ancient sacred and frankly simple method! HALLELUJAH!!!

This method must be open sourced for everyone. It uses mostly local materials that can save a lot of money as well as provide for a great return on a smaller investment and will work best in a sunny climate or where there is full sun for at least 6 months on average out of the year but there are other ways of achieving the same result in a climate with not as much sun throughout the year.

I will need my giant fresnel lens and my protective "welding" equipment as well as a way to make adobe and a clear work space with no children running around the vicinity or wondering animals and plants need to be at a safe distance. Just precautionary measures. This method is not very dangerous.. but does have some inherent risks as using a blowtorch does.

Besides megalithic construction, I'm also very knowledgeable in permaculture and traditional methods of canning and preserving foods as well as various styles of composting practices. I have books and audiobooks and lots of playlists on YouTube.

I have also devised several blueprints for different kinds of incredibly beautiful structures that can be build with this method. One is a submerged inverted step pyramid "greenhouse" and it incorporates a seamless glass dome suspended by a giant obelisk pillar in the middle of the structure within which an entire community can live.

This structure design also includes gravity irrigated terraces with no need for plumbing or piping. This is the structure that is living and life giving... way better than an Earthship, (bless your heart Mark Reynolds) because it is made of obsidian and fulfills real spiritual multipurpose and it is not made of trash 😬😂

l have a strong work ethic and I get along very well and I treat others how I want to be treated. I do not believe that ego has a place in community, that is something I have successfully deprogrammed from my psyche. I believe we are all brothers and sisters and now is the time to reclaim our sovereignty and uplift each other to become more of who we're supposed to be!

I am honest and respectful and I love to work with others and collaborate, and I believe that we can achieve great things when we put our energy and effort into what matters most, and that is building a beautiful future for our children... after all, we only borrow the world from them!

Thanks for reading this far, I hope I was able to inspire you! I know being a part of this permies community inspires me to follow through with my true passions and dreams in life.

God Bless you all,

Evyienne Tlá

The second photo reveals that the ancients posessed rudimentary Photoshop technology. This particular example seems to pre-date the discovery of blending and dithering of edges to make the photoshopping less obvious.

Their construction method is astonishingly simple:
1) Obtain a photo of a small retaining wall built next to a driveway.
2) Crop the right edge to remove the 90-degree corner.
3) Replace the driveway concrete with a grass verge.
4) Replace the bushes atop the wall with a big 'ol stone lintel.
5) Replace the structure in the background with a forest.
6) Add a teeny-tiny human figure to create an illusion of gigantic scale.

It's obviously photoshopped I'm not lying to you guys  Or trying to hide anything from you this is simply what this technology is capable of.

Hi Evyienne,
I'm in Southern oregon. You can check out some of my other posts to learn more about what I've got going on. If you're interested in talking more, reach out. Good luck.

Stone work was one of the most rewarding aspects of doing trail work. If done right it could outlast me, and maybe even this civilization. Unfortunately, while my property is mostly rocks, but no real building stone. If you head to northwestern California despite our sub-ideal geology, look up the Wild Rivers Permaculture Guild. Best of luck!
