I think on the list of different Orbit colonys or whatever, Zion should be a option. You know, Zion??

so...


exactly what is zion?

[text snagged unceremoniously from wikipedia.org<-(onelook.com:zion)]

Zion:
Zion, or Sion, is an archaic term that originally referred to a section of Jerusalem, which, by Biblical definition, is the City of David. After the death of King David, the term Zion came to refer to the hill in Jerusalem which was the site of Solomon's temple. Later, Zion came to refer to temple and the temple grounds themselves. Beyond that, Zion is used to symbolize Jerusalem and the Promised Land of God to come, in which God dwells among his chosen people.

Zion symbolizes a longing, by wandering peoples, for a safe homeland. [...] it has taken on a more spiritual meaning�a safe spiritual homeland, like in heaven, or a kind or peace of mind in one's present life.

Zion is a city that Latter-day Saints believe will be built in Jackson County, Missouri, and a common reference to both North and South America as the "Promised Land".

In a spiritual sense, Zion [can be] regarded [...] as a perfect social state of being of "pure in heart" believers, where all people have all things in common, and there is no suffering nor impoverished among them. It stands in opposing contrast to proverbial Babylon, where there is much suffering, poverty and whoredoms. [mm. whoredoms]

Rastafarianism is strongly syncretic Abrahamic religion. Rastas believe that they, and the rest of the black race, are descendants of the ancient Israelites.

Babylon is an important Rastafarian term, referring to the white patriarchy that has been oppressing the black race for centuries through economic and physical slavery. Rastafarianism is defiance of Babylon.

[The orbital colony of Zion that Skank is asking about is probably: (snagged from www.antonraubenweiss.com/gibson/gibson0.html. A nifty site if you're a Gibson fan).]

Zion cluster
30-year old Rastafarian colony in the remains of Freeside data cores, founded by five workers who refused to return.

[And to answer the initial question  in a more constructive manner then :n00b:
Sindome owes much to Gibson's imagination. But it is not Gibsondome so that's probably why it's not on the list.]

goats!

weelllllll...


that sure explains a lot.
  so yeah, no Zion for skank

I'm thinking that Skank means the city in the center of the earth. From the Matrix movies... >_>


<edit: I'm dumb, and posting at waaaaaaaaaay past my bedtime. Thank you. >_< >

buggerit then.
god damned matrix whores. ;)

though skanky did ask about orbital colonies...

(Edited by Bias at 12:21 am on July 26, 2004)

You know what I want to be included from The Matrix?  The matrix.  *ducks the many "It's on the list"s that fly his way*

He was speaking of Orbital communities, perhaps he was speaking of the Zion Cluster mentioned in a William Gibson novel. =oP

<edit> yeah what Bias said.

Oh yeah nothing like throwing up bad links =oP

Red needs Whoredoms.


Or maybe like a small Whore arcology.  

See Kevlar!  Thank you Jotun.
