Water is H2O, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one, but there is also a third thing, that makes water and nobody knows what that is. D.H. LAWRENCE (1885-1930), Pansies, 1929
In the world there is nothing more submissive and weak than water. Yet for attacking that which is hard and strong nothing can surpass it.~Lao TzuOn this 22nd of March, 2012, Wo-Built Inc. contemplates the above two quotes on water.
In many ways, the second quote by Lao Tzu answers the question posed by D.H. Lawrence. Water is a magical substance that appears weak, meek. Were it a living creature we would say “it has no backbone.”
And yet, as Lao Tzu points out, water has by far been the most instrumental force in the shaping of our planet’s geography: that patient power that wears mountains down to dust and builds continents from magma flows.
Water is the humble hero: the strong silent type…until it roars. Calm and still it reflects perfectly the awe of the heavens. Stirred by motion and whipped by winds it thunders the sound and fury of nature’s wrath. It gives life, shapes it, takes it, and renews the remains.
Water is very much alive. It deserves our respect, care…yes, even love. Without its gifts, humanity is nothing…a ghostly apparition reflected in a desert mirage; a dusty legend of faerie folk songs.
No wonder, then, when Wo-Built set-out to revolutionize green building with its affordable green addition—Peapod Life—it included a rainwater recovery system.
But what good is harnessing rainwater if it just stagnates in a rain barrel? That’s why your Peapod Life will also auto-water your plants.
Of course, too much water (in the air—humidity) can be a problem, so automatic climate control comes standard, powered by built-in solar cells.
More than a sunroom; better than any old greenhouse, Peapod Life recognizes the value of water and respects the crucial role it must play in any truly green addition and any so-called eco-living space.
In this case: the world’s first indoor garden living space. Truly green space. Living. Peapod Life.
