Burial Pods With Seeds Replace Coffins To Make ‘Memory Forest’ Instead Of Graveyards

Updated on 7 March, 2016 at 11:51 pm By

Global warming and climate change is serious and real. It is happening right now. We have Leonardo DiCaprio speaking of it during the Oscars. We can no longer run away from it.

In HongKong, land scarcity due to overpopulation and incessant land encroachment has left no space for the dead to be buried. Even after cremation being made an official alternative to coffins, depositories of the dead’s ashes are running out of room.

 

When we bury coffins and create graveyards, we are literally creating only graveyards. Yards of land becomes wasteland, which cannot be utilized for any industrial, residential or environmental purposes. In this time and age, where the population is multiplying as quickly as trees are diminishing, we need science and logic to take over.

Italian based designers, Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel, have conceptualized the Capsula Mundi project.

The idea is to encapsulate the body in a fetal position in a biodegradable casket. Once buried deep underground, a seed or a young sapling can be planted on it.

Unfortunately, the idea is yet to be legalized.

However, the wide scope of this beautiful idea can not be ignored. One source of life can spark off another hence immortalizing the essence of the buried forever.

 



Graveyards look sad, spooky and mournful. However, when a thriving ‘memory forest’ replaces tombstones, the vibes will be completely transformed.

Imagine, for every mournful tomb, we get a live and fruitful tree – trees which symbolize a healthy, thriving world.

 

Considering the rapid death and birth rate, this is an absolutely marvelous manner to balance the ecosystem We can supplement demand with supply. Moreover, there is indeed a dire need for more green space.

We optimistically wait for this revolution.

Here’s David Wolfe sharing this fascinating video of organic burial pods!
