MUSE Mapping

Following important work undertaken by researchers at the United Nations Board of Significant Inspiration (UNBOSI) which shows a strong correlation between geographical location and physical activity on levels of significant inspiration, UNBOSI are inviting members of the public to take part in a worldwide exercise to try and map locations of significant inspiration. Members of the public are being invited to reveal their ‘lightbulb moments’ where they felt significantly inspired. In addition to revealing their inspirational thoughts, they are being asked to record their location and the activity they were engaged in at the moment of inspiration. This project comes about as a result of research which shows that levels of inspiration have been proven to be stronger at certain geographical locations where a release of a harmless, odourless, invisible substance which emanates from fissures on the surface of the earth. This substance UNBOSI scientists have named MUSE (Micro-molecular Unseen Sensory Emanations).

Take Part!
