Dante

Dante ( Dante-Gabryell Monson ) has been hitchhiking Europe as a permanent traveler since the Paris 2003 European Social Forum.

Dante is interested in the development of alternative lifestyles ( experience of the ongoing transit, presence of festivalist nomadism, and the metaphysics of the hitch hiker - as a metarealist expression?) and nomadic netroots activism oriented towards developing paradigms maximizing opportunities , and not coercion.

Dante is from Europe ( grew up and lived in Brussels , Belgium ), but also lived in Taiwan and Malaysia for about two years.

Dante has been involving himself over the last years with various international networks , such as http://www.fyeg.org ( "young european greens" - note : I have since reduced my official involvement into what I realized is an arena monitored by competition and power driven individuals, while I prefer collaborative creative intention and inspiration lead individuals )

and as hes extended family, hospitality networks : "dante" on Couchsurfing.com and Bewelcome.org , "dante-gabryell" on Hospitalityclub.org


In 2008 , Dante is trying hard to reduce the frequency of hes re-locations , and converge more of hes activities around Brussels and Berlin.

Dante also looks forward to understand and build on intentional social network dynamics and projects , including Peer Governance , Peer Production , and Open Business ; Alternative Currencies ; and Stigmergy.

As a self-learner , Dante is also interested in certain fields of cybernetics and semiotics , and would like to develop one of hes ideas for a emergent post-symbolic spatial language. , for which he still lacks programming and graphic design skills.


Meaning of Life

Dante believes that the key to meaning is the opening of trust , mutual empowerment , learning and creativity in shared interconnected realities , towards greater understanding , welcoming , surrendering in the moment , at every moment , letting what " can through us " flow.

Hitch Hiking and Life

Dante enjoys surrendering to synchronicity.

//

When Dante can not sleep , he sometimes tries to re-count the number of trips and kilometers he hitch hiked , and tends to fall asleep after counting 300 000km.

Dante has been suffering from a serious hitch hiking overdose since 2007 ( especially solo hitch hiking on highways he knows all too well ) , and is currently healing by limiting hes hitch hiking experience , through staying in places of shared reality longer ( more then two days ) , and using other forms of transport.

Dante suggests long distance hitch hiking ( over 2000 km non-stop , without stopping for sleeping ) as a spiritual practice ( overcoming the illusion of insecurity and of specific needs , opening up trust and faith ) , and as a test practice for couples that are in love relationships ( facing hardships together and opening up to uncertainties in joy and detachment )

For optimal comfort and traveling experience , Dante recommends long term hitch hikers traveling Europe to have as only luggage a small backpack not exceeding 5kg in weight. ( this is usually enough for extra socks and underwear , shorts , some t shirts , extra pullover , raincoat and a laptop )

Dante very much enjoyed the freedom of movement in summer 2006 , when he traveled several months with a 1,5 kg backpack.
