About  Syraforest

Syraforest is a place to find art and inspiration. A dark forest where every path leads to a new adventure. One of the valuable driving forces of humanity that helps us further, is to gather and share energy. To exchange ideas and feelings gives motivation and inspiration.

The experiences here, in this digital forest, can refine and strengthen your own ideas about our existence in this organic harmony of life.

At the Syraforest live events we gather physically and dance to deep thrusting ancient sounds. The feeling of moving carelessly to one rhythm with a group of people is so powerful, that can’t be described in words.

A human being is not designed to achieve something without others, we do this together.

All life you see around you originates from our oldest great grandparent. A prokaryote that floated in water around 3.800.000.000 years ago, to be precise. This organism consisted of streaks of chemicals, protected by a membrane. It had DNA, a molecule that contains all information for the development of the cell. This ancestor of ours duplicated itself, whereby the offspring had that same molecules. Billions of years later our bodies still consist of cells with DNA in every one of them. But not only our bodies, also the bodies of our cousins, like all animals, fungi, plants and even the fruits of plants, are constructed that way. Many ancient tribes across the globe say that life originates form one point. With my own ears I’ve listened to a chief of the Maasai tribe in Kenya explaining this. They share this wisdom from generation to generation, without any use of western science. In nature, all puzzle pieces about our existence can be found. To find them, we can connect to our nature. Just like all other creatures, we are an important part of the whole.

As a species we have the gift to transfer information to new generations. Through history this has helped us with survival and developing our population. Since thousands of years we as Homo Sapiens are the only human race still alive, managing to strive on all continents. We still carry genes from extinct human species in our DNA, what suggests that we also shared information and skills with other human species in the past. You as a human being have the ability to share information and energy with others. We don’t survive on our own, but we do as a group, a society. Sharing information and energy gives meaning to our existence, being the continuation of the whole. If you receive something positive from somebody, you’ll most likely do something positive for someone else in the future. That’s how our brains are wired. A chain reaction of positive power can be created by putting a little energy in something nice for someone else, no matter how small.

Thank you, we wish you all the best in this adventure of life.

- Edward Rijkers & Joppe Maessen, Syraforest.
