The web site newsi8.com (pronounced news eye ate) is an art-meets-life exploration to help save the human species and the planet Earth by getting the right people at the right times to make incremental changes which add up to implementation of long term species-wide goals.

This requires working to get a clear picture of our current situation, a functional understanding in diverse areas of human experience, from planetary energy needs and resources to various cultural phenomena.

Cultural Shells

We live our daily lives within a context of various shells of biology, personal experience, as well as family, local and national culture. Think of culture as “the way we do things around here.” In the broad perspective, aspects of culture are adaptive when they give individuals and groups tools to further species survival. Conversely, there are aspects of every culture which are maladaptive from the species survival context. Some of these, historically, have lead to extinction of entire local human populations.

Civilization’s “Drinking Age”

It is only when the critical mass of human cultures and the individuals within them become aware of the need for species survival level critera, when dialogs, negotations and meaningful actions start, that we will have approached the “drinking age,” the age of responsibility of our civilization. Proof might be found in our ability to make decisions that balance long term survival with short term benefits and profits.

Obstacles to Acceptace of Species Goals

Top level species goals are not easy to sell. They require moving various groups with long histories of stubbornness and division through the denial phase on verified existential threats. Within a time that can be fairly well predicted, however, like it or not, believe it or not, we will face currently unsolvable existential threats. Our own star, the Sun, is preparing to completely cook our lovely planet.

The clock is ticking.

What Can You Do?

Start thinking about species level goals that matter. Our sun is a yellow dwarf (G-type main-sequence star) and as such, it has a known lifespan. In only about a billion years the Sun will be 10% brighter than today, increasing the steady greenhouse effect that will eventually make the surface of Earth uninhabitable. Can we all live underground? What about food and water? Can we learn to control the output of the sun? Can we shield the earth? Can we move the earth? Can we make a space ark to carry earth life to Mars? Can we re-build ourselves and other life on other planets with biological 3D printers?


About Staff

The bios of the contributing staff of Newsi8 speak for themselves. Advisors for the site include formidable futurists and a heavenly host of great minds and beautiful spirits now gone but not forgotten. To inquire about becoming a writer or celebrity ghostwriter for Newsi8, please contact Cosmo in our HR department, email address below.



Sources we check range widely from highly respected government and educational sites to the most disreputable fake news and spam sites. The fearless cross-section approach is necessary for a fair sample of different strange news and views.



Unfortunately, in the current social climate, sharing a full spectrum of views gets individuals and groups, including news organizations, de-listed by web search engines and social media. Human leaders–generally technology moguls and political leaders–, have responsibility to do a better job of either sorting this out, or of letting people have freedom of expression.

Great blog, I enjoyed reading your stories. Can we exchange links? Getting my blog off the ground. 🙂


I’m into the whole weird Hollywood & Celebrity crimes and crashes.

thepenks December 10, 2009 at 8:36 am

great blog… and good quality of posting you have..

Tony Sandy July 16, 2010 at 8:35 am

With regards to Rods (Funnily enough listening to radio special on ‘Rod’ Stewart at the moment!)has anybody got hold of various insects and released them, filming the results of their flight? If they are insects, surely you could prove this by using various films, shutter speeds and insects? If they alive, why have no bodies been found or is it that they only visible on film because they exist outside the normal light spectrum? (Not hard when you consider how much visible light we see, when compared to the invisible part of the spectrum (Likewise UFOs). Another thing if orbs are dust particles, why not prove it by hitting furniture and filming the rising particles? Where are the experiments I want to know, rather than the theories?

By the way good site – will recommend to a science site I belong to, if nobody else has already!

keep on posting.
But at the same time, What I believe is there is nothing paranormal.
Everything is definable or will be definable by science.

Anna February 4, 2011 at 5:28 am

Hi Xeno.

So I am reading this “about” site to find out more about the author behind this blog. All it says is that you are a singer/songwriter whose uncle was the bassist in Led Zeppelin. What does that have to do with popular science?


Xeno February 4, 2011 at 10:21 am

Hi Anna, Why do you ask? No, not Zeppelin, some other old famous rock band.

….If you are looking for my credentials I very purposefully do not list any because I’m here to tell you, among other things, that information is what matters. Learn to Trust yourself, your powers of observation, your experience. Experts are only useful if they can point you to the best evidence when there is ambiguity. In what I post on this blog, I want it not to matter if I’m a doctor, a secret government agent, a Nobel prize winning researcher, or a crazy homeless guy with one eye and a wooden chin.

Linda February 9, 2011 at 1:07 am

I agree. Credentials most times aren’t worth the paper they are printed on. Observe and learn. When the student is ready the teacher will appear….:)

Anna February 10, 2011 at 2:32 am

Hello Xeno.

Thanks for your reply. No, I am not currently in the blog authorship relevancy police corps, I was just curious. I actually do find it interesting what an authors educational/professional background is. It does say something about a person: it says that the person chose to study a particular field for some time (but not why), or that a person has insight into a particular industry (but not which insight). So I always read the ‘about’.

In my case, my resume doesn’t say anything about who I am as a person or what my interests are, because there are a number of partly random and partly undisclosed reasons for my educational & professional path. However, it does indicate certain lines of experience and certain theoretical frameworks, which of course shapes the way I think.

Xeno February 10, 2011 at 8:07 pm

Makes sense. To quote Dan Bern, if you must put me in a box make it a big box… With lots of windows…and a door to walk through.

Anne1024 February 11, 2011 at 2:16 am

OK, I consider you a general specialist in the Universe et cetera (including all windows and any door).

Gibby Goo Bop February 10, 2011 at 3:05 pm

hi mr. lovegood!

you’re a slightly mad scientist?… well i am one too!!

you like true, strange stuff?… i know that i do!!!

everybody will snooze blue

so I made this video just for you…




Xeno February 10, 2011 at 7:58 pm

Gibby, far out. Really far. You have, without a doubt, made the weirdest most random David Bowie tribute video in the known universe. My logical mind fought it, but I laughed out loud, nevertheless. Thanks for sharing it!

Littlebeut333 March 16, 2012 at 6:44 pm
