VESUVIUS 2000 is an interdisciplinary venture aimed toward generating a secure and wealthy habitat for the folk dwelling round Vesuvius. to supply this atmosphere calls for an efficient collaboration among the specialists and the general public, wherein the chance from the volcano is used to reorganize the territory and hence produce new possibilities for the folks surrounding the volcano. As an all inclusive physico-mathematical-computer version of the volcano, the worldwide Volcanic Simulator is a key instrument for picking the consequences of other eruption situations and hence for city making plans of the territory. not like the evacuation plans which are inclined to deal with emergencies, VESUVIUS 2000 goals at getting ready the Vesuvius zone to confront destiny eruptions with minimum socio-economic and cultural effects. * Addresses volcanic chance mitigation in densely populated zone surrounding Vesuvius* presents schooling approximately volcanos* screens actual modeling of eruption techniques and integration of versions

A strategy that only provides an illusion of safety and its proponents keep sending messages that 'everything is under control', while the public and independent professionals are being kept in the dark what exactly is under control, was not designed to produce security for the population but to control it for the purpose of extracting political and economic benefits from it.

This blindness is defined by Kuhn 29 as incommensurability and to resolve its puzzle requires the creation of a greater Vesuvius consciousness, or what we have been discussing above, carefully tending to the habits of mind of the people exposed to the danger from the volcano. The force of habits of mind can be startling.

If the same people were familiar with the latter project they would judge the idea of massive escape differently, because there would be other cueing patterns that would contribute to the decision-making processes. The validity of a massive escape strategy from Vesuvius thus depends not only on the capacity of its promoters to legitimize it by indoctrinating the population, but also on the capacity of VESUVIUS 2000 supporters to use their strategy to challenge the validity of massive escape.
