2018 is gonna be a loaded one for those Buddha-like people, whose motto is “keep calm and carry on.” Not only do they got to trump Elon Musk’s imagination, while compelled to be in contrast with the current Chinese ideological adaption of Karl Marx, but also forced to be in contest, in term of “personal validation of self worth is represented by their net-worth”, with both Jack Ma and Huateng Ma.
The Buddha Machine will give you the boost to overcome.
* “Made on earth by humans” and “Don’t panic!” are texts engraved on a Tesla Roadster, which was launched into space by SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket on February 6th, 2018.
* The object in the images are the packages for the Buddha Machine, a cheap electronic device that replays Buddhism chantings. A remote site of mediation at anytime, a carry-on/to-go Buddhist practice at all places.

*注：两张海报内的文字 “Made on earth by humans. 地球产，人类造。” 以及 “Don’t Panic! 请勿惊慌！”，均为SpaceX公司近日发射的一枚可回收型火箭上，搭载的一部Tesla Roadster车体内所刻有的字样。
