End the concept of „Privateigentum“, build a state not focused on making a profit, but enabling everyone to develop a good life in their own sense

If the universe is everything and it’s expanding, what is it expanding into?
Well, if it can expand, it is not everything! Perhaps we have to work on our perception of expansion and the concept of everything should also be examined further.

marameo at Märkisches Museum, the best place to dance in Berlin, Staatsbibliothek to read and work, and the Kindl Berlin with it’s impressive Kesselhaus exhibition space.
