Raves are what a technoshaman would organize to entertain his tribe of people who currently have too many boundaries for more novel functions. Most musicians at the events do not appear to be technoshamans but some of the organizers often are, often wayyy behind the scenes.[verification needed] The BPM of the music tends to match the heart rate of a dancing person. This seems to facilitate an easier flow of emotions, greater appreciation of the moment (hedonism) and ultimately is a great way to shift the brainwaves. Where as a technoshaman alters his own mind states at will, an artist on the stage uses lighting and music to influence the audience's state.[verification needed]
Airship Ventures, the Mountain View company that took passengers on joy rides in what it billed as the world's largest passenger airship, the Zeppelin Eureka, is closing, the firm said Thursday.
Company officials said they would cease operations out of Moffett Field immediately and plan to provide refunds to customers who have already booked flights.
Founded in 2007, Airship Ventures focused on taking passengers "flightseeing" in the Eureka, a Zeppelin NT (new technology) built in Friedrichshafen, Germany. There are only two like it in the world - here and in Germany.
Airship Ventures has been leasing the Eureka from the Zeppelin company, which is expected to disassemble the airship and send it back to Germany.
"It's an inelegant end for the Eureka," said Hall, who has launched a social-media campaign to try to save the company.
