"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one
persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress
depends on the unreasonable man."
George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950),
Irish playwright, Man and Superman (1903),
"Maxims for Revolutionists: Reason"
Why does civilization grow but does not progress? Perhaps the concept
"progress" itself does not exist. All that actually happens is,
as individuals, our ability to exercise innate capability becomes more accessible
and less inhibited by the high cost of living. We are born with these abilities
and they come with 'existence' in the world.
Available tools mark the milestones on the journey to civilization. Number
one on the list of tools is energy utilization and resources, then number
two, natural resources. You may ask yourself at this point, "Are not
energy resources the same as natural resources?" No! Natural resources
occur in the Earth. Their acquisition relies on mining, drilling, or harvesting
fuels and minerals. Conceptualize natural resources as a Savings Account.
All the deposits in this Savings Account made millions or billions of years
ago. At present some deposits are being made but at a very slow rate. We
(Humans) are withdrawing from this Savings Account more than a million times
faster than the deposits.
Logic dictates that if you continually withdraw assets from your Savings
Account eventually your assets will fall to zero. Without Income to balance
expenditures, Bankruptcy. Energy Utility companies meter our (individual
consumers) consumption and we pay for materials as real property, food and
consumer products. Mass consumption seems to elevate our standard of living.
Recycling our minerals is the life-blood of civilization. Any inhibition
of the circulation strangles our vitality.
If civilization is to progress, we must wean ourselves from using our Savings
Account and transfer to our Income. What Income? The Income of energy to
All of Civilization runs on Energy Resources. The efficiency of utilization
and recycling mandates the cost of living. Therefore, The Scale of Civilization
is gauged on this efficiency. Currently this efficiency is 2.3%. All of
Civilization with all that this entails have been developed with 2.3% efficiency.
Thus by raising this efficiency we lower the cost of living and approach
the unfettering of our innate capabilities. By only doubling efficiency
to approximately 5%, all of humanity will receive all needs (Food, Shelter,
Clothing). Raising the efficiency even higher will produce an abundance
never before realized. Only the imagination can speculate on the bounty
of an attainment. Maybe then our civilization can truly experience "Progress."
Our government institutions created by our forefathers and legislated into
existence by our elected officials, have no project or program to relieve
us from the shackles of energy fuels dependence. Any invention or industrial
tool that increases the Scale of Civilization usually receives little or
no support from government or industry. The "Engine" that powers
our institutions, services the status quo. An elite set of Robber Barons
leach the spirit of progress from the individual by requiring that we "pay"
for consumption." This concept of doing business is a recent invention.
Technology now exists that can relieve Civilization completely from all
dependence of Energy Fuels, Nuclear Power, and Monetary Institutions. This
technology is purchased and withheld from us by these Mega-Institutions.
Profit is the motive. The harder we work and the busier we are, the less
attention we will pay to the ever increasing ability to free ourselves from
this very encumbrance. The false idea that you must "Earn a living"
is a scheme perpetrated by our system of governance. Would you like to live
in a world without bills and costs? It is now possible. Energy harvesting
can and will do this. Unfortunately Energy Utility companies cannot put
a Utility Meter on Income, just fuel.
The idea here is to increase your efficiency and reduce your dependence
of utilities. What would happen if you had the tools to cause your Electric
Meter to run the other direction, if you put electricity into the grid instead
of put a load on it?
This is now possible. Find it, use it, have your legislators enact it. Turn
off the flow of wealth to the Robber Barons and harvest energy from the
Universe not the Earth.
Dear World Class Citizen: Dare to be naive.
The wherewithal to accomplish a design revolution in human accommodation
is not on the tongues and minds of the people. This consciousness can only
occur by direct experience. This involves cogent effort by our managers
(government). We have the power to change the face of the landscape to a
more productive and regenerative benignancy. It can only be done through
a change in consciousness whereby all changes in the world of Human Affairs
During the Middle Ages there were a few people intensely involved in discovering
and revealing the options of Nature that man calls General Principles. These
discoveries are revealed to us (Mankind) through what we call Science. It
shows us the Order of the Facts of Experience. Personal experience can be
divided into two general areas. The one that takes up most of our everyday
activity is the Human Affairs side of this cleavage.
Indeed this is the bulk of experience, most of our language; body, verbal,
and artistic, deals with this. But we are creatures, corporeal and tied
to the soil. This quality requires sustaining necessities of intensity and
purity of investment. Without these necessities, continuation takes more
and more time until the activities of foraging dominate our lives stripping
us of innate capabilities.
A small part of experience allows us to describe the Real World. Unlike
Human Affairs, Nature has immutable, weightless, size less, eternal, always-and-only,
Laws that allow options like neutrons, daises, whales, bicycles, and galaxies
to operate without any Law conflicting with another (interaccomodation).
The words we use to describe real world events are sequestered on a dusty
and seldom used shelf at the top of the linguistics file. There exists also
a hidden shelf containing linguistics that connect these different hierarchies
of expression to give Science Consciousness. These words are used to describe
Mankind has built great institutions whereby these Reports can be taught
and reenacted to give the novice more prowess in solving problems. Our abilities
in Problem Solving is the crowning creation, the separation of the species,
the purpose of existence. Man has a Mind that deduces and apprehends.
So, why do several thousand Humans starve to death every day, most of them
If we scan the knowledge banks we come up with the general term, accommodation.
This is an all encompassing word; accommodate what?
Nature has a great propensity for spatial freedom, just observe the outer
reaches of space or the Antarctic. But these spaces are not for Man yet
our very manifestation is poised amongst these voids and are just as important
as Mother's womb. Insofar as reality has terrible hardship for the naked
novice, there is the ball and chain of super violence, the economics of
modern weapons, that sucks the life out of society making all of us hostages
of a system that none of us can change. It is madness to have it and it
is suicide not to have it.
This brings us to Technology, our tools. We have tools to improve our standard
of living. Nothing wrong here. The problems of technology are due to poor
management. Industry is simply a tool that takes more than two people to
operate, if one drops a wrench on one's foot, one gets the desire to be
Today we've dropped a wrench on the whole planet.
WHOOPS! Wrong Planet.
Technology has hierarchies of throughput. The higher the information rate
of throughput the shorter the delay of widespread use. Geostationary communication
satellites are at the upper end and housing is at the lower end of the rate-of-interchange
spectrum. Let's compare them.
A Communication Satellite weighs less than ten tons and uses about one hundred
and fifty watts of power as electricity, takes about two to three years
to build and costs about one hundred to one thousand man-years of labor.
It can carry as much as 500 television signals or tens of millions of two
way telephone signals. Compared to the sheer weight and cost of land lines
and transoceanic cable, it's a big savings. The level of technology is the
highest in industry. The materials are too advanced to mention. New technology
- six to eighteen months delay for widespread use.
A HOUSE weighs tens of tons, takes about a year to build and costs about
six man-years. It requires an incalculable amount of energy to produce,
and transport, has thousands of custom made parts, used only once, has very
few moving parts, conveys little or no information, and "goes up in
flames " like a match. Its place on the technology scale is the lowest
in modern industry. The materials used to build a modern house are dirt
and wood. New technology - fifty years to one thousand years delay for widespread
Shelter is "The Necessity" allowing accommodation for all human
existence. Yet where is the technology? It does exist but in a dormant and
unexplored area of understanding called "enclosure systems" of
which there are several facets. The strata of this understanding lies in
"Spherical Geometry." This Science reveals the relationship Energy
has with enclosure.
Harvest energy from the Universe not the Earth.
The principles are sound and the technology is available off-the-shelf.
If our government institutions helped home owners to finance these technical
improvements our standard of living would improve remarkably.
Take 10,000,000 homes and outfit them with $10,000.00 worth of solar electric
equipment. Since the power grid is connected everywhere, electricity generated
in sunny Phoenix can be consumed in Detroit.
I have been watching a satellite program from San Francisco. While they
were broadcasting live, they experienced a blackout and had to switch to
their emergency generator. Let us install an emergency power generation
system distributed across the rooftops of our nation.
The investment would be $100,000,000,000.00 and is renewable. This investment
would last at least 10 years without the need for refurbishment and allow
all of the homes and businesses, for instance, in the San Francisco Bay
to operate without dependence on the Electric grid. The Bay area economy
is greater than 100 billion dollars a week. If you have been paying attention
to current news, you know that the power grid in California has been experiencing
rolling blackouts because of the increased demand exacerbated by the high
cost of 10 million year old natural gas, a fossil fuel. The investment above
would delay the need for expanding the power grid there for at least 10
years giving the utility companies time to compensate for the non-linear
demand problem. Think of the 10 million Solar Power cells on these homes
as a very high frequency battery that adds backup to peak demand.
Another long term solution is more drastic but more effective. In middle
school science class, students learn that the closer the load is to the
source of power, the more efficient the transformation of that power. This
is the case when you consider the conversion of tidal forces. These forces
were set in motion before the formation of the solar system, and are the
most abundant source of everyday energy income on earth. Tidal forces move
over a trillion tons of water several feet up and down every day. Yes, I
said trillions of tons, that is the number one followed by 12 zeros; 1,000,000,000,000.
Lift a ton a foot and you have a foot-ton of energy, one trillion of these
exceed the total energy Mankind uses on Earth in several weeks. If we were
to harvest only a tiny fraction of this energy every day, that savings would
allow the total reduction of fossil fuels to near zero. It may even be possible
to generate enough electricity to provide a surplus of energy. This has
never happened before. The result will produce unheard-of prosperity.
Why does the Federal Government continue financial support of antiquated
technology to the tune of Billions of Dollars?
Every year there are disasters both Natural and man made. The man made disaster
is the continued support by the Federal Government for the rebuilding of
houses and other buildings that are prone for destruction by Natural disasters.
What do I mean by prone for destruction? The technology now exists to create
dwellings that do not succumb to the destructive forces of Nature like current
antiquated designs. The basic design of current Dwellings have not evolved
much in 3000 years. They still consist of a box made of Wood and tacked
and pasted together with Dirt (concrete) and pasteboard (drywall). Perhaps
the only significant improvement in Dwelling technology in the past 3000
years is the joist hanger or the strut strap.
The technology in a $15.00 digital wrist watch is more highly evolved and
well developed than an entire city of contemporary houses.
It is now possible to build a house without the high cost of labor and make
it virtually indestructible to most of the common disastrous forces of Nature,
all at a lower cost than a "Conventional House." This means that,
for the same price as a "Conventional House," a home owner can
have a larger dwelling space and higher quality dwelling.
The Federal Government needs a program to develop and standardize this technology.
This technology will not only prevent the expenditure of Billions of Dollars,
it will save hundreds, and possibly, thousands of lives every year.
The costliest and deadliest natural disasters are hurricanes. My new Dwelling
technology can prevent and almost eliminate the widespread destruction and
death caused by these killer storms.
Spend a few dollars now to develop and establish this technology and it
will prevent the expenditure of millions of dollars later for disaster aid,
never mind preventing all that pain and suffering of the victims of Natural
Only the Federal Government (with my help) has the means to accomplish this
