2,000 Word Project

In the last time I surf your blogs every day. I like this tipe of surfing. Sometimes I found interesting things of photos, and from time to time there are interesting projects.

Today I found an interesting blog. I began to read articles and there was one telling about an interesting

2,000 Word Project

The author offers LinkLove. Future LL. But I like the idea: Write the word that represents the most important thing for you. It's really very interesting -what is more important for you today?

There is an interesting psychological test.
You have to read a text for 2 -3 minutes. After reading it, I'll give you 2 questions that you have to answer.

This is the text (from theage.com.au if you want to read it later)
Please read.

A ROCK platform in the heart of the Wollemi wilderness may be the closest thing Australia has to Mount Olympus, the "seat of the gods" of Greek mythology.

Last spring archaeologists discovered an enormous slab of sandstone 100 metres long and 50 metres wide in the 500,000-hectare Wollemi National Park, which is north of Lithgow, in western NSW. The sandstone was covered in ancient art.

The discovery was an unprecedented collection of powerful ancestral beings from Aboriginal mythology.

Last week the archaeologists who found the platform, Matthew Kelleher and Michael Jackson, returned with Griffith University rock art expert Paul Tacon, Blue Mountains archaeologist Wayne Brennan and several of their colleagues.

Two senior members of the Aboriginal community — Darkinjung sites officer Dave Pross and central Australian artist Rodger Shannon-Uluru joined the expedition.

For most of the day the engravings are almost invisible. At dawn and dusk, the images are briefly revealed.

The team had five days to document 42 figurative motifs and by the first evening, Professor Tacon, Mr Brennan and Dr Kelleher had recognised a gathering of the gods. Supreme being Baiame and his son Daramulan were both there. Near this father and son pairing is an evil and powerful club-footed being, infamous for eating children. Several ancestral emu women and perhaps the most visually powerful of the images, an eagle man in various incarnations, are also present.

"The site is the Aboriginal equivalent of the palace on Mount Olympus where the Olympians, the 12 immortals of ancient Greece, were believed to have lived," says Professor Tacon. "This is the most amazing rock engraving site in the whole of south-eastern Australia."

Even in famous rock art regions in the north, it is extremely rare to see big gatherings of ancestral beings depicted together, says Professor Tacon.

The Wollemi is dissected by deep canyons and in places almost impassable.

Now answer the questions.
Without thinking!
Answer!

name a colour ...


name a tool ...

Now, you can confront your answer and the answers of a very great part of the population in USA and Europe. Most of us answer "red" and "hummer".

Excuse me,I hope you like the text you had to read. :))

What all this has with 2,000 Word Project, why I like it so much?
If there will be really 2000 partecipants at that project, it can be a very interesting to analyze the words that they'll write. Because it will be the mirror of the main problems of entire world.

If you like the idea, you can write your words here too. So, for scientific interest.
