No theme announced for 2012?

Fertility 2.0 - Black Rock City is a kind of Petri dish. Theme camps cling in fertile clusters to its latticework of streets, artworks tumble out of it, like pollen on the air. These nodes of interaction mutate, grow and reproduce their kind. Burning Man communities have now escaped this capsule world: our culture in a Petri dish has effloresced - it spreads across five continents. This year's art theme contemplates the tendency of any being or living system to create abundant life.

No - its not - the LLC is trying to get the population bumped up to 70k over the next couple of years and I believe that the passing of the BRC City Planner just prior to the burn might have something to do with it. I am sure that the death of someone so involved has had a profound impact on those he worked so closely with. Besides - the announcement of the theme so soon is a fairly new occurence.

There is also a thread on this already.

I think Rod Garrett's passisng is slowing the process down, The time spent on the writeup was repurposed towards memorial, we will all know soon enough. I was shocked when i saw the theme posted on the way out in 06, it ruined the game my brother and i played being the one to find the new theme first. I remember the theme being posted in Nov. before if i remember correctly.

The 70K population target, btw, is a goal for 2016. And as I understand it would likely require quite a bit of roadwork to accommodate exodus as well.

Theme announcement is coming very soon.

"Included in the new permit would be a population increase to 55,000 people for the 2012 event, then a 6 percent increase each year through 2016, limiting the population to 70,000."

The Lord said to Gideon,
"You have too many men for me to deliver Midian into their hands.
In order that Israel may not boast against me that her own
Strength has saved her, announce now to the people,
"Anyone who trembles with fear may turn back and leave Mount Gilead.’"
So twenty-two thousand men left, while ten thousand remained.
But the Lord said to Gideon,
"There are still too many men. Take them down to the water,
and I will sift them for you…"
The Lord said to Gideon, "With the three hundred men that lapped I will
Save you and give the Midianites into your hands…"
The three companies blew the trumpets and smashed the jars.
Grasping the torches in their left hands and holding in their right hands
The trumpets they were to blow, the shouted,
"A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!"…
When the three hundred trumpets sounded,
The Lord caused the [Midianites] throughout the camp to
turn on each other with their swords.

CAmp Red Dragon? (no, too many amateur Hannibals...)
The Four Horsemen Bar
The Beast with Seven Heads and Ten Horns, I think that's an s&m camp. And I've always wanted to know how those ten horns were distributed on the seven heads. One on every head with three having two? Two on five heads and two heads without horns? I wish they'd tell me these things...

You just about floored me with this one. It's totally possible (within the possibilities in the text) and I wonder why it never crossed my mind. It's also pretty damn funny.
