CREST13 - Centers for the Restitution, Investigation and Education of the Natural Mind

  • Project #1:
    13-20 "Timeships"
    USD $20,000

    [Plan][Golden Ratio Spiral]Help us build the 13-20 timeships by donating wood and roofing materials.  $3.10 per eucalyptus plank, we need 3000 planks per building for the 13-20 spiraling roof (based on phi ratio and cosmic egg curvature)  for a total of $9300 in wood and approximately $6000 per timeship for the protective roof covering (shingles, etc).
  • Project #2:
    Plant 400 Fruit Trees
    USD $1,600

    We plan on creating a self sustainable "garden of eden" with fruit trees, legumbres trees, medicinal trees and native trees, all organically grown without chemicals or petroleum based fertilizers. Trees cost between $1-$9 ... averaging about $4 per tree. We have planted about 100 trees. Please help us by donating other trees. At this point in the permaculture plan, we would like to plant a total of 400 trees.
  • Project #3:
    Biofiltration System
    USD $6000

    Building the biofiltration system for the black and grey water.  Part of being self sustainable and not impacting the environment with waste is to recycle it in the natural way through a biofiltration system of channels, ponds and plants which naturally filter and break down the components of the waters to create great natural fertilizers and beautiful ponds abundant with plant life and fish. The estimated cost of a 40 person biofiltration system here in Ecuador is $6000 and this can be expanded to an 80 person system later on with the addition of another pond.
  • Project #4:
    Connecting to Potable P3 Water
    USD $5000

    There are 5 main sources of water we can connect to for the center.  We are connected to 2 sources currently...the town of Niebli spring water and the swiss water system.  The swiss water is great for irrigation but has a higher mineral concentration so it is not as good for potable (drinking) water.  The town's spring is beautiful clean pure potable water.  We would like to connect to one more spring at this point which comes from another area in the hacienda.  We have acquired the water rights to connect to this spring and with labor, piping, pump and the storage tank it will cost approximately $5000.  This is a beautiful pure source of potable water that flows at a rate of 1.5 liters per second.

Ecuador - Galactic Spiritual Center


Updated 3 Apr 2013


Ecuador, Niebli de Monjas, Pichincha. Inside
the Reserva Geobotanica Pululahua (inside the nature reserve.
Just Northwest of Quito, Ecuador in the equatorial zone at .05360 latitude corresponding to the center of the Milky Way Galaxy at 05 sagitarrius 36.


We purchased land on earth day 2010 and moved to Ecuador from the United States in Dec of 2010. We are currently building the Center at this time and have finished the foundations of the 4 modules centered around the larger geodesic dome. There are 4 buildings each with 3 sides which makes the 12 sides of the dodecagon going into the 13 with the large geodesic dome in the center which goes from 20 ft tall to 33 ft tall. The height dimensions are 13 ft high rising and curving in a phi ratio or cosmic egg to 20 ft at the top of the buildings. Everything is based on the sacred geometry grid of the new Jerusalem… see "Sacred Site for Tyberron", Land Map & Plan and photos below. All the foundational posts and structure are being put in this week and next.


Jennifer Alvarez,
Uriel Light,


English primarily and then Spanish (Jaime is fluent)


The Website is under construction, we have a rudimentary google site up with a basic brochure, we will send you new website and information in the coming few months.

Site Structure

Present buildings being constructed: The 4 modules that form the dodecagon equalling 4320 square feet total.

There is the Kitchen/Café/Bathrooms Module in the Fire(SE) direction.

There is the Auditorium/Massage Room/Small Meeting Room module in the Earth (SW) direction. (we may use the massage room and small meeting room (each about 300 plus sq ft) as women's and men's temporary dormitories until other hostel structures are completed).

There is the Media/Library/Uriel's suite in the Air (NW) direction. All openings between buildings to get into inner Hexagon and geodesic dome spiritual meditation and gathering space are in the cardinal directions N, S, E, W.

Storage area with extra outside bathrooms is being contructed nearby.
