    Hello Tyler,

    I dont know about the Oil but I can tell you about my corporate ex-colleagues. They don't take kindly to it! FE is a direct threat to their way of life. They don't want to hear it. "If what you say would be true then I would have wasted my life working here and building this career for me! I cannot and I will not accept this!".

    Perhaps a more passive approach will work better ? Let them ask you first? For example when you get into a discussion about worlds issues you could say: "Don't you think that all this boils down to an energy scarcity issue?" And then see how far they will let you argument your position .. It's not "all about the money"... it's all about "the energy!"

    Hi Sandy:

    On the DOE proposal, that was Brian’s idea:

    http://www.brianoleary.info/Impacts.html

    I would not have approached the DOE (Brian admits that he probably has a co-dependent relationship with the USA’s government), and their response (“You applied to the wrong program, and we do not have one for you”), was not surprising. I wrote the “Big Picture” part of it, as well as most of the “Further Obstacles” part. I carried Brian’s spears on that one, because that is what I do, but I wondered if we were going to make much headway if we got the OK to do it, because Brian’s proposal was making an assumption that the participants were going to be beyond Level 3, or at least pretend that they were:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/paradigm.htm#chart

    when I have hardly ever met anybody from the public that got past those early levels of denial. If that hurdle could somehow be crossed, doing it for free is more of how we play the game. Chasing money is beginner’s flypaper.

    I hear you on starting a thread, but I am willing to let you try the experiment. Yes, what tends to happen is that newbies go haring off in all directions. That is partly because they do not have a comprehensive perspective and get caught up in all manner of distraction. Or, they want the quick and easy answer to the FE conundrum, and begin sprinting straight at the many pitfalls that await the unwary:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/conun.htm#pitfalls

    Oh, how many, many times I have watched that happen, and I don’t want to watch anymore. So, while that often becomes the outcome, I also do not want to be the dictator of how this effort goes. I am only one guy with a perspective that has certainly been colored by my journey. Fresh eyes and minds can be very helpful. As Brian said, the field needs fresh blood:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/camelot.htm#new

    and I agree. Few in the field today have the right stuff. It is generally dominated by inventors and their supporters, with each inventor vying to be the one, true FE hero. You get a bunch of FE inventors in a room, and they all vie to be the Alpha Wolf:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/energy1.htm#alpha

    I have long said that the only prayer that the inventor’s route has in today’s environment is for the inventor with the goods to give it to a worthy group. I have never met the inventor willing to give it away (although some fellow travelers say they have), and I have never heard of that worthy group. The open source movement for FE understands part of the picture, but a bunch of garage tinkerers I highly doubt are going to get it done. One of the bigger players in that regard is buddies with Mr. Skeptic:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/skeptic.htm

    which shows how far we have to go. There are other valid perspectives on the FE conundrum, and I have no monopoly on them. It is possible that somebody pursuing the “inventor’s rights” path can somehow do it and succeed, but I highly doubt it. The mere fact that the inventor is seeking personal gain pretty much takes him out of the running. That is probably the easiest strategy to defeat. Heck, most would-be FE inventors never tap the ZPF in the first place, but think they did. If they really get that far, seizure of their gizmos by using national security laws is just one way to derail them. Somebody seeking personal gain is extremely vulnerable to the carrots and sticks, and if an inventor like that is lucky, he will get the Golden Handcuffs. Usually, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre effect makes its appearance early on, and nobody survives the self-inflicted bloodbath, or the local energy interests wipe them out, and Godzilla never has to roll out of bed. If the inventor and his crew prove to be a tough nut, then the sledgehammer gets used to crack that nut, and no nut has ever gone uncracked in this field, if they wanted it cracked.

    Almost every newbie is in denial of the pitfalls, thinking that they are quick, strong and nimble enough to dance past them. Then, if they survive the first hole that they fall into, they become paranoid and quickly get stuck in Level 8 and will remain there:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/paradigm.htm#level8

    I am trying to keep newbies from the meat grinder, but some just have to go poke the beehive. I respect learning from direct experience, but I only pray that they ease into their quest and don’t immediately try scaling the ramparts, but stand back for a few minutes and watch some other fools try, first. They can get sobered up pretty quickly by watching others go at it. Partly why I am here is so that others can learn some of these lessons without having to learn them all the hard way. Many pitfalls are crippling or fatal.

    Yes, Sandy, this is a long, long slog. I will say this, however: I have never been bored during my journey. If I lived to be 150, I would barely make a dent in my Bucket List, and my Bucket List certainly does not look like the average person’s. Learning about how the world really works can be an agonizing process, but it can also be liberating. I am a learning junkie, and the many facets of the FE conundrum can be explored for lifetimes. Understanding how the human journey led us to this juncture can also be a fascinating study.

    For the past several years, I have been digesting the latest findings (at least in the “White Science” world) in anthropology (in both the cultural and physical branches), geophysics, molecular biology and biochemistry, energy-and-humanity studies, and so forth. Some have been specialist efforts, but most have been multi-disciplinary and generalist works, usually written by popularizers. Einstein grew up reading popularized science (but efforts like Carl Sagan’s are another matter (http://www.ahealedplanet.net/dennis.htm#sagan )), and my readers will generally not need to dive into the specialist literature in order to glimpse the big picture regarding energy and the human journey and the story of life on Earth. It is necessary to at least be familiar with how specialists operate; their work becomes the raw material that the generalists work from, as those specialists pursue “normal science.”

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/medicine.htm#introduction

    But the generalist perspective sees the big picture (or at least thinks it does ). Once the generalist lenses are donned, people are far less likely to be distracted, and there are a million distractions on the FE path, such as conspiracism:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/paradigm.htm#conspiracism

    all the alternative energy “solutions” that are anything but, such as biofuels, air cars, hydrogen power, and the usual suspects of alternative energy (wind, tides, direct solar radiation, and so on), half-cocked efforts to scale the ramparts, chasing after the rich and powerful, etc.

    My work will always be rooted in my experiences, or the experiences of those close to me. That is probably the most important contribution that I can make. Almost nobody is doing this. Those still active are too busy trying to scale the ramparts (Dennis, Greer, Brian), and those few who survived their adventures with their sanity intact are old or dead or far too wounded to engage the public. Many who have never really been on the battlefield are holding forth on their perspective, but I see a lot of them playing boy-general. Those perspectives are usually of very limited worth.

    What I am here to do, many will not be interested in, and they are voluntarily removing themselves from the conversation, and that is fine. While I have been called a fisher of men, I am not casting my net widely, gathering in whatever gets snagged. I seek a very particular sort of person, and I am also not looking for heroes.

    We will see if this ends up bearing any fruit. It may not, not in a world-changing way, but I had to try it out.

    Best,

    Wade

    Hi Tyler:

    Great questions. As far as I know, I am unique in the FE field as somebody who came from the corporate ranks to play FE revolutionary, and who moved back-and-forth between both worlds. I am a respected technical professional, but I am also very careful about whom I talk to regarding my FE days. When I do, it is usually when colleagues are on their way out, and it seems like they can handle it. The reason why I do that is to let them know the good news: FE is here, and it may go public before long, and our world can change immensely for the better. But, for twenty years, after my first stint with Dennis, I never told my superiors about my adventures, out of caution.

    However, less than two years ago, I screwed up my courage and sat my CFO down and told him about my background, because I had just finished helping clean up a $30 million disaster that I could have prevented if my radicalized perspective was allowed to poke into the area before it went to hell. So, I only piped up because my experience could be useful to the corporate cause. I was very well received, and my CFO’s initial reaction to hearing some of it was what the high-level corporate players know well: most retail technological innovation is stolen from some hapless inventor, if it is not suppressed outright. People playing at the high levels of corporate America, especially in leading-edge industries like high tech, know how capitalism works, so my story is not all that surprising. And what really helps me on that front is that I am not talking about some crazy idea that I saw on You Tube or some book or site about “conspiracy theories,” but I am talking as somebody who survived the wars that take place out of the public eye. Not everybody buys my story outright, but because they have seen me in action for years, they rarely dismiss me. I have seen newbies to this field, who had corporate gigs, try to spread the gospel in their office, and I warned them not to. I have watched careers end by people who ignored my warnings.

    I have found myself in the happy position where some around me at my workplace know some of my background, and it has not jeopardized my career. In fact, I keep my boss informed of my FE activities, including all the interviews that I am doing now. As long as it does not interfere with my work life, they are fine with it. I am still finding a balance for my work and personal life with this new activity. It is not an easy balancing act, and writing that essay is part of what has had to give. I really need to slow down in this forum until I get that essay written, but it is not proving easy to do (I need better self-discipline! ).

    But, and here is where we once again need to cue up some Twilight Zone music, just yesterday I was asked to watch a couple of hours of training videos for an initiative at my company, but within the first minute, I turned it off and told my boss that I could not watch it. He heard about my background when we were peers, and he is not in denial. He understood my problem with watching the video and I was excused. The videos were of some “alternative energy” entrepreneur teaching a class on bringing new ideas and technology into the corporate arsenal. Oh god, I have seen way too much of that stuff, and it was going to ruin my day to watch it. It is like I was a Jew who lived in Poland in World War II,

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/war.htm#toward

    and he was a Jew who lived in Hollywood during World War II. Not only were our experiences starkly different, he never even heard of what the Jews experienced in Poland, except for some rumors that he quickly dismissed as a conspiracy theory (the few Jews who escaped concentration camps in WWII were treated exactly like that by the West, at least until the camps were opened when the war was over). Capitalism and the FE field do not mix, not in today’s environment.

    On the receptive “man on the street,” yes, the number is around one in a thousand. I used to be more optimistic and think that maybe one in a hundred would at least be able to consider FE, but the long years have ruefully proven to me that it is more like one in a thousand. The rest react with denial and ridicule, even to somebody like me, even groups that you would think might be receptive, like environmentalists and other “progressives.” Even people who know me do not really want to understand the FE conundrum that much, and are probably mostly Level 8s, but a fair number also figured that I am crazy. Many friendships and family relationships ended or were damaged beyond repair because of my journey, but on the other hand, I have pals in this field who are closer than family, too. All-in-all, I cannot complain too much, not for the epochal journey that I have been on.

    On Peak Oil, that is a long, long story. I had to study the Peak Oilers long ago, and I write about some of it here:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/hooked.htm

    I keep poking my nose into it, and the evidence is very strong that the hydrocarbon deposits that have been mined during the Industrial Revolution (coal, oil, gas) are biogenic, meaning that they came from life forms (the carbon isotope enrichment is particularly strong evidence, for instance). We may have already hit Peak Oil, and the end is near for the Hydrocarbon Age. Even if Peak Oil did not do it, the energy wars in Asia are species-threatening, and that is putting aside all the pollution aspects. The rising carbon dioxide levels due to burning hydrocarbons is readily measureable, and those who claim that carbon-dioxide-induced global warming is a hoax are virtually all non-scientists who have been swept up into conspiracism and other pitfalls. No doubt, Global Warming has become a huge political football, but that does not mean that the phenomenon is not real. The carbon dioxide and oxygen levels in Earth’s atmosphere have fluctuated widely over Earth’s history, and all paleo-climate scientists accept, based on a great deal of interlinking evidence, that the levels of carbon dioxide and oxygen in the atmosphere have had deeply profound effects on not only the biosphere, but Earth’s surface, from temperature changes to anoxic oceans to iron deposits to their effect on how the elements have been recycled via tectonic dynamics. I will cover some of that territory in my upcoming essay.

    Ilie’s experience with his colleagues is typical. Almost everybody focuses on the financial economy and ignores the real one. That is largely because the financial economy is the egocentric one, and money is all about “what’s in it for me?” The real economy is a different animal, and it takes a scientific background to understand a lot of it. For all of the downsides of the perspective of the neo-Malthusian Peak Oilers, they readily understand that the financial economy is not real, but an elaborate illusion that allegedly has some correspondence to the real one. In theory, it does, but the world capitalist economy has degenerated into rigging the scoreboard, not playing on the field of the real economy. One key goal of my upcoming essay is to help readers see that. The financial economy and money is a big illusion, and focusing on that as somehow related to solving our problems is a big waste of time, as far as I have seen. People focusing on the financial economy for solutions are like those focusing on biofuels and windmills for solving our energy problems. I am aiming a lot higher than that.

    OK, time to go to work.

    Best,

    Wade

    P.S.

    Tyler, as far as Level 12s who may be willing and able to pool their awareness, I am not sure if I know a dozen, and a dozen who are really there and did not hear about the idea from this thread. There may be a few more that have contributed on this thread, but it seems to be just a few. That is OK. That is more than I have ever found with any other public effort. My upcoming essay is intended to help grow a lot more of them, but we will see.

    Dear Wade,

    Well I too love to learn, because I'm so darn curious about how we have become the civilization of today. Thus I read and research most area's on the evolution of humankind. What I notice more and more is the easing up in the anthropology field as to human's origins and thus many more articles, books, and discoveries we are hearing about especially in this last year. I also like the quantum physics field although I think I grasp the concepts from a "knowing" versus a real intellectual understanding>>>>>>>>>however never thought in my wildest dreams as once a drop from school (returned many years later) that I would ever be interested in science

    I too believe I'm a generalist as have always been able to see the big picture. I think it comes from my insecure childhood and having to know where the pitfalls are so I can prevent the penny from dropping if possible or at least know where and when it might drop. I don't really get into the role of a specialist until I have a vision I want to create, ie. writing a training program for a certain target audience>>>then I really delve into the world of the target audience and all its dynamics. This helps me to formulate the material and learning goals according to the participants learning styles and needs. Most of the programs I have written were all experiential, as once you can get a feel for something new it becomes a reality and the possibilities become tangible.

    I see more and more talk about FE on the net and the 5 sites I visit daily but nothing about the reasons for the suppression that gives others the understanding that it starts with their very own mindset, beliefs, and behaviors. That is why I believe in your writings as they are the basics and the foundations for others including myself to start the learning curve about FE.

    So will you stop reading this and get back to work as the canaries are starting to sing and want to fly

    Well, Sandy, I just finished the busiest part of my "normal" year last week, a pretty painful period that began back in late November, so I am taking a little breather and am reading these posts and responding quickly. That may come to an end soon. I will be on the road at times during the next couple of weeks, so I may not be very active here.

    The dynamic you see in FE discussions is an old one. Usually, FE talk is a debate about FE physics, which aspirant has it or not, promoting all the avenues to FE that have so far proven futile, and the more worldly discuss the organized suppression, but rarely from a productive viewpoint. The current system does not encourage anybody to take responsibility for anything, but encourages us all to play the victim or be taken care of by those that we gave our responsibility to. Encouraging each of us to acknowledge our role in the state of affairs is almost never done, anytime or anywhere, for any situation. The energy situation is the central one that humanity faces, wittingly or not, so those dynamics get amped up a thousand times when the subject becomes FE. In no other area that I know of are people offered huge money to simply go away, before the Big Boys start playing rough. The GCs fully grasp the situation's importance, but maintaining the situation requires a sleeping humanity, or if they begin to awaken, they should never take responsibility for it and should just spectate. If you look at layers 0 to 11:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/paradigm.htm#chart

    are any of them rooted in an understanding of being responsible for this situation, and oriented toward a creator-oriented (as contrasted with victim-oriented) pursuit of a solution? Arguments might be made for some of them, but really, which of those encourages us all to take a good, long look in the mirror and own what is happening? More than anything else, that is the root of the conundrum. Until enough people have the courage to look inside and find out what they are made of, and how they contribute to this situation, it will continue.

    Leaving school and then learning later is pretty normal. Schooling and learning are distant cousins and often enemies. Generalist thinking seems to be making a comeback, slowly. As Carmody said, the old-school generalists were called "Renaissance men." The Renaissance was a while ago. The rise of science was also the rise of the specialist, and that was not an entirely "natural" process, but encouraged by the power-and-control interests, to help keep scientists, in Bucky's words, slaves:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/roots.htm#slave

    They are house slaves, but still slaves.

    OK, I'll try to get back at it, essay-wise. At some stage, I have to stop the reading and write instead, but when you see the essay, the reasons for my dilatory behavior may become evident.

    Best,

    Wade

    Hello :)

    The main impulse that prompted me to join forum was to try to help in finding solution to the FE conundrum described by Wade. I consider myself level 12 in "Frazier scale" ;) No pun intended :) I can easily imagine world at this level and I can partly imagine how it would be at level 19 and beyond :)

    I wanted to ask all of You if You have any awareness of the work of Joseph Chilton Pearce (author of "Crack In The Cosmic Egg", "Magical Child" and few others). Mr Pearce precisely describes workings of our western world view and points ways out of it. He is aware of the scarcity-addiction of our civilization. He can imagine abundance. IMHO Pearce is level 12. And can see above past level 19. He cites in his book "Crack In The Cosmic Egg" statement made by renowned quantum physicist, David Bohm, that one cubic centimeter of supposedly empty space is filled with energy sufficient to satisfy our planet needs for century. He dares to make a statement that relationships of our mind to our environment is two-way and open ended. He gives many stunning examples in his books to support his words. His attitude to universe is holistic. He also gives references to some mainstream scientific research. His books are "mainstream". Although not so popular I think.

    He focuses on children as the ultimate solution to our current problems. And describes how (mal)treating of our children has led to our present world situation. By describing this processes he gives precise instructions how to be magical parent and rise magical child. And thru the child change the future. He is a father of 5 children. And I think he must know what he is speaking about. He says something like this: "...the three years old is not incomplete five years old child. It is perfect three years old. But if she can not become perfect three years old that five years old child will become incomplete..." Our present problems in "adult world" arise from the problems in "childish world". But it is same world.

    My first daughter - she is six now - was born when I was still not fully awaken. And when I was reading "Magical Child" I saw how many errors I have made in regard to my child. I had forgiven to myself and to my parents. And now I want to stop wailing and walking in circles. I want to switch from "victim-mode" to "creator-mode" and to make real progress in finding solutions. I know that nobody cane solve my problems but me. And I do not want to bitch about my problems anymore. I want
    to solve my problems. First by awakening myself and then by supplying my children with safe environment that will let them learn to help themselves and stay awaken for the rest of their life :)

    This morning I had conversation with my mother. She asked me that while she is in our home, I not let my two years old daughter climbing on a kitchen table. I asked her why. And she replied that she is afraid of the girl falling dawn from the table and she can not handle that fear. I've said that I am there to watch my daughter and catch her if necessary. But she said that it is not enough. After I left my home and for work it come to me that my mother was not afraid of falling dawn in the first
    place. Her fear was from the unknown, from the unpredictable. That she not believed that she would be capable to handle that unknown sudden situation of the girl falling down. She was raised that way herself. I was not angry with her. I was sorry for her. And this is exactly what Pearce points out in his book "Magical Child" when he addresses rising children in fear to make easier for parents to "manage" their
    children. And to prevent them from little injuries at almost any cost by scarring them at every step. To train them to survive in that hostile world out there. This fear robs our children of their inborn power to take responsibility for themselves. This fear takes away power to directly control their environment and this fear prevents children to be accustomed they are fully capable to handle unknown situations. This
    fear from the beginning is vicious circle or rather deadly spiral driving scarcity-based attitude. We have to stop this vicious spiral from spinning any further. And I dare to say that You all know this fear is imagination of the prison of mind. I encourage everyone not planning on becoming parent and all who plan and all who already are parents to give Your heart a chance and read "Magical Child". It is never too late :)

    Pearce is also advisor to non-profit organization Touch The Future (http://ttfuture.org/). It is dedicated
    to rising awareness of parents, educators and adults in general of the real needs of our children and to stop messing with Nature's plan for unfolding unlimited potential of the human being. Parents and educators are listening and are interested in Pearce ideas. I think You should know that more and more people are awakening and are readying to sing the abundance song :)

    And what You ask You get. If You think of present doom and gloom You get more of it ("victim-mode"). If You think of bright future You will also get it. But they are mutually exclusive... It is sufficient to just pray for that what You want for common good. We are not alone. Our Divine Source is always within us - ready to help us helping ourselves. We are not helpless if we just believe it is possible and if we
    ask it happen. We need to stop fearing that there is so many people to awake. Believe that they can awake as we have awaken and they will too. I pray for this everyday. It really does not matter how and when. We are all connected on quantum level and awakening process is like "chain reaction" :)

    I "discovered" J.C.Pearce existence while reading WingMakers material. I had heard of them ten years ago but somehow I was not interested in them then. But I remember waves they had made in mainstream media. I have became curious two years ago when I heave read interview with James of WingMakers on Project Camelot
    web site. It is from the WingMakers material also that I have learned of The Book Of Urantia. Before WingMakers there were three books by George Green: Handbook for the New Paradigm, Becoming and Rainbow. My eyes suddenly opened and my life changed for better forever :) And I stopped "to watch TV" then. I can not imagine how I could wasted so many time watching "news" ;) However I need to deprogram my older daughter from watching too many cartoons. She defends it furiously. I hope it is a matter of helping her find some "creative hobby" for herself :) But this TV-thing is hard to beat... And before those three books I remember I asked in my thoughts if I will ever see under the fabric of the "reality". You know, to look behind the scene of media propaganda. Ask and You will be given :).

    Wade I do not negate that energy is driving everything. It is. But abundance of it will not change our hearts instantly. You know that and that is why You call it "FE conundrum". But I think that our hearts can be changed without FE in markets. It seems to be easier for sure. But easy path always leads down. I mean this days ;)

    I think we can convince people of the theoretical existence of FE. Here is my reasoning. If something is theoretical and not contradicting "mainstream" physics it is for sure possible to find way to make it practical. And maybe it will not be necessary to carry FE device with You from door to door to "upgrade" people to level 4.

    I thought about some anecdote we could use in conversations to help people start thinking that what they think is unthinkable is actually theoretically possible. Let us consider Einstein's formula for calculating "theoretical limit" of energy equivalent
    in any given amount of mass. E = mc^2. Einstein is regarded an authority among many people. His space-time warp effect was recently confirmed by NASA's space ship Probe-B. Out of curiosity I tried to calculate how many litres of water it would
    take to have equivalent of energy equal to world energy consumption in one year. It took less than 6 cubic meters in 2008 :)

    Here is how I arrived at my result:
    1) I looked up value of "E" from the formula. World energy consumption. It turns up that in 2008 we humans wasted 132 000 TWh of energy. We need to convert it to "Joule" (J) unit to use it in Einstein's formula. This is 474*10^18 J.
    (source: Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_consumption)
    2) Looked up value of "c" from formula. Speed of light - 299 792 458 (m / s). And squared it. This gives us 89 875 517 873 681 764 (m^2/s^2).
    (source: Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_of_light)
    3) Finally made a division E / (c^2) and got mass equivalent of 5273.96 kg. Joule is expressed as: kg / (m^2/s^2). And when we erase (m^2/s^2) from c and (m^2/s^2) from E the kg is left. This mass can be anything. So I decided let it be water. We can easily imagine water. We have plenty of it on our blue marble :)
    4) One 1000 kg of pure water is equal to 1 cubic meter. It is cube made of six 1 meter by 1 meter squares. The mass from point (3) is equivalent to 5.27396 cubic meters. Less than 6 :) It is 1393.23284 US gallons.
    (source uncle Google: http://www.google.pl/search?q=5.2739...x=&startPage=1)
    This Einstein-water effect is one of the thousands anecdotes we can think off to start people thinking in direction to the exit of scarcity mind set.

    For comparison if You wash Your car in USA 1 time every week of the year you consume 41 cubic meters of water per year. So You waste theoretical one year world energy in 2 months (8 weeks)!
    (source waterfootprint.org - http://www.waterfootprint.org/index....culator#result)

    If you can make iron rust and aluminum burn thru concrete wall easily (think of thermite) by making fine powder instead of large chunks, maybe You can easily burn water if You only know what is the optimal procedure for preparing the ingredients? Actually you should not try to extinguish thermite with water. Unless you want water to decompose and supply some more oxygen for burning ;)
    (source of course aunt Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermite)

    You do not have to talk about GC and ZPE. You can talk about Einstein and water ;) Let us try to make people think on what they already know. Let us try to convince them that since scientists are considered open minded it is probably that those scientists have not yet arrived at proper arrangement of ingredients to extract that world's energy from 6 cubic meters of water. But they sure finally will. We can start using such anecdotes while talking with children. With our families. And with other people. And let us pray they will get inspired by us.

    Just wanted to cheer everyone up :) We have already won :)

    Best Wishes
    Robert J. Niewiadomski

    PS.
    DANGER!!! Thermite is extremely flammable. It can self ignite in presence of pure oxygen or if its grains are too fine! Beside I think it is "illegal" to make it or posses it privately. I hope this "t" word is kids play compared to things discussed on Avalon :) I mean I hope it is below echelon threshold set for this web site ;) I hope I have not blew it with my post...

    Hi:

    Scott just published something on his site:

    http://www.spectrumradionetwork.com/...tastrophe.html

    that could be considered a kind of companion piece to my interviews on Spectrum:

    http://www.youtube.com/user/Spectrum...CC03E294B890CD

    http://www.spectrumradionetwork.com/...inventors.html

    I mentioned one of the paper’s authors, Andrew Michrowski, when discussing Brown’s Gas in the second interview. The vacuum energy that they discussed powered the technology that my pal saw in that underground setting:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/camelot.htm#underground

    Devices like Sparky Sweet’s:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/advent.htm#sweet

    were also tapping into the Zero Point Field. For me, with fallout from Japan wafting down on me as I write this, it is bizarre and emotionally challenging, to put it mildly, to know what exists and to be aware of the awesome damage being wrought on humanity and the planet by our dirty and unsustainable energy practices.

    That latest “revelation” from Britain, that the invasion of Iraq had everything to do with the oil there:

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...q-2269610.html

    was one of the many “gee, what a big surprise” moments of that continuing nightmare.

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/america.htm#invading

    The death toll of our recent imperial ventures, primarily rooted in securing hydrocarbon energy, is credibly estimated at eight million people:

    http://www.countercurrents.org/polya071007.htm

    http://www.atlanticfreepress.com/content/view/1199/32

    For the Land of the Free, we are reaching Hitlerian death levels. Impressive. For two years running, we have had wide-reaching catastrophes due to how we get our energy (Gulf BP spill, and now Japan’s nuclear nightmare – part of Japan, and maybe a big part, is going to be uninhabitable because of that disaster). I wonder, more than idly, how many more of these we have to have before we begin waking up to solutions, instead of the “more of the same” drumbeat that is becoming a deafening crescendo.

    In the past two months, I have never seen more pro-nuclear propaganda, and or so many “progressives” saying that for whatever happens in Japan, we need nuclear power, so there is no practical alternative to building more nukes, just “safer” ones.

    With some of my pals at my office knowing a little bit about my background, on the day of the disaster, I was asked what the “fallout” might be. My reply was that while we would probably not have to worry about airborne fallout too much (that remains to be seen), the North Pacific food chain might be affected to the extent where people might not want to eat any of that famous Pacific salmon that is so popular in Seattle. That may yet become true.

    An amazing aspect of both the Gulf and Japan catastrophes is that in both instances, private corporations were responsible for the events, and the affected governments pretty much just let the corporations control the information, and only after the magnitude of the event began becoming evident, did information begin leaking out, kind of dribbled out in a limited hangout fashion. The public was pretty much kept in the dark. Today, Fukushima has largely disappeared from the USA’s mainstream media. While they can sure use an editor, I go to Rense.com nearly every day:

    http://www.rense.com/

    to find out about what is happening in Japan. Otherwise, I would never hear about it. Here is some mention of the silence that has descended on the scene in the West.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/vivian..._b_859241.html

    In both events, there was obviously a great deal being covered up, even to the casual observer, but there has been no clamor for greater transparency. At this rate, the next catastrophe will see more corporate cover-ups abetted by the local and national governments that are entirely captured by those corporate interests.

    Back to working on that essay…

    Best,

    Wade

    Hi Robert, and welcome.

    This is another instance of that Avalon synchronicity. I knew that you were trying to join Avalon, and your post was made as I was writing the previous post, and did not see yours until I had posted mine. You will see a few clear connections with your post.

    I have some posts on this thread about children being our future, and how the “system” gets ahold of them and beats out the abilities that they come in with. In the Michael material:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/spirit.htm#michael

    that beating is called “scathing,” where the “roughing up” process is part of the price of admission to physical reality. When I read stuff like that, it makes me want to give the “author of the feast” a piece of my mind.

    I am not familiar with Pearce’s work, but in taking a peek at some links, like this interview:

    http://www.appliedmeditation.org/The...n_pearce.shtml

    he covers very familiar territory, obviously. IMO, Pearce is a light worker. Thanks for introducing me to his work.

    If I had to guess, you seem to be from Eastern Europe. Can you get ahold of an English word processor? I have been using Microsoft Word for many years, and do not keep up much on its few competitors, but Google has a free word processor. I can read your post, but some Avalon members may have a little difficulty. The better word processors will have spelling and grammar checks, so that your posts are more readily readable in English. I am sorry that this conversation is taking place in English, but it is my mother tongue, I am horrible at other languages, and universal translators have yet to really make their appearance.

    Best,

    Wade

    I have been trying to imagine a way in which we might begin to make a 'vow of abundance', as you say, real. Here is a suggestion of a way in which we can in some way think in abundance individually. I want to explain why I think that questions themselves are a kind of scarcity.

    It is a waste of time and energy trying to change someone's belief toward your own. Belief precedes knowledge and a-priori knowledge is really to know nothing at all. Changing one's belief is a private affair and is a manifestation of free-will. And it is my belief that if everyone were to make their own beliefs and not just have them fitted by someone else we would be living in a better world.

    If belief is the fuel then questions are the engine with logic the design. I spent 3 years studying one philosopher after another, talking them up and then cutting them down using questions and logic. If you could find their underlying belief that set them off in the first place, you could make a question that burnt the belief. The underlying assumption though, is that things that are true are unchanging, absolute and immutable (take your pick). That the truth exists to be discovered and exists objectively outside of our control.

    If however, we assume that we are each a part of the ongoing creation of our time and space, then in our reality the truth is not necessarily fixed and unchanging. We make truth. Questions are by their nature a form of scarcity. This is so, because if a question could illicit an infinite number of valid responses then it is no longer a question. If the answer to a question could be wibble then the question has failed to be specific enough to find a comprehensible answer.

    I must admit to having been fixated by the linguistic mechanism known as the question for about 15 years. I spend a good deal of time day-dreaming and have written much of this stuff down in the hope of making something of it one day. It was doing a philosophy degree that led me to this line of thought.

    I have concluded after all this time that questions are mostly inappropriate for our purposes in daily affairs and matters of the imagination and thinking in general. They limit the number of available answers, and so the 'truth'. They have to limit the answers or it is less a question and more an assertion. Questions can often tell you more about the ones asking the questions than can the answers from those getting questions. I imagine a world while day-dreaming sometimes, where 3 fundamental differences are present:
    • when you dream you visit the mind and reality of another individual
    • no-one really believes in death as an absolute end, but commonly see it as the start of a journey
    • and finally, a world where our languages lack any form of questions, both structurally and grammatically

    I have tried the 3rd one and can confirm that it is possible to conduct all types of thought and communication without using any questions. It is both strange and fun. If there is information you require and would normally use a question to get that information, like something as simple as asking the time, then you firstly assert what you think the information is and if you have no idea then make it up, and then most likely you will get better information, such as the right time from someone with a watch.

    The time must be 5 o'clock
    - no, the time is 4:30

    Asserting made up facts is one way to illicit a knowledgeable response without using questions. Another way could be negation.

    "There are no bases on the dark side of the moon"
    "Actually, according to me, there are and if you'd spare me 5 minutes I'd tell you why..."

    I'd spare the conditional, since this is not really a question, but more of an ability to select a path.

    Anyhow, there it is. I fear you all think I may be mad.

    I am very interested in what you are doing Wade and wanted to share my thoughts on what a world with abundance as a primary concept would look like. If I have not laid out my thoughts clearly enough then perhaps I will try again.

    Robert J. Niewiadomski,
    I resonate with what you are saying and must check out Crack In The Cosmic Egg soon.

    When you said that:
    Quote This morning I had conversation with my mother. She asked me that while she is in our home, I not let my two years old daughter climbing on a kitchen
    table. I asked her why. And she replied that she is afraid of the girl falling dawn from the table and she can not handle that fear.
    I thought of all the questions running through your mother's mind that amplified her fears.

    Will she fall off the edge? Might she slip? Could the table topple?

    Without questions she may have thought 'I can see there are dangers here', 'I have capability', 'I am ready to respond to those dangers'.

    Questions often hide, or I should say reveal, fears. Whether voiced or not.

    Hi Butangeld:

    Thanks for your interest. Those are big subjects that you broach, and I will not be able to do them justice right now, but I will give a short reply.

    I read, a few years ago, a channel describing philosophy as the love of wisdom. I'll buy that. I have interacted with some who are considered philosophical giants, such as Noam Chomsky, and was mentored by two world-class creative geniuses. The cerebral aspects have their place in the FE mix, and richly so. However, I have noticed that unless the heart was in charge, what came from the most brilliant minds could be of dubious worth. Also, the positive pole of a scholar, a la Michael:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/spirit.htm#michael

    is knowledge and the negative pole is theory. Knowledge is gained from experience. Countless times, I have witnessed newcomers to the FE conundrum chime in with what they think is a helpful perspective. Virtually none of them have been based on actual experiences in the FE trenches, and you really can't get that experience anyplace else. In no other field are people offered a billion dollars to go away:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/advent.htm#offer

    before the boom gets lowered on them. The people probably closest to understanding are those who have tried developing and marketing disruptive technologies. Outside of Dennis, I have never really met anybody else who has, especially playing at his level. I am not interested in the businessman's route to FE anymore, but I learned one heck of a lot along the way.

    I am going to present an analogy, and I do not necessarily like making it, but it comes to mind. There are plenty of war historians and scholars, but the writers of warfare that I really respect are those who have been there, such as Fussell:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/war.htm#fussell

    Sledge:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/war.htm#sledge

    and Zinn:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/war.htm#ryan

    People can study warfare for their entire lifetimes, but all that study can be meaningless when compared to ten minutes on an active battlefield.

    I could be further reinforcing the scarcity paradigm by making myself available for "questions." I get that. If I ask a question of you, it can imply that you have the knowledge and I don't, which is a scarcity concept and perhaps partly what you are driving at. I have found in the West that what people think they know are often just beliefs, which are usually lies that they were told,

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/intro.htm#paradigms

    which is a close cousin to what is called "faith." I am not into "faith" as it is popularly defined, and there was a "faith" exchange early in this thread.

    http://projectavalon.net/forum4/show...sis#post104345

    I am into the knowledge that comes from experience. I believe that you are stating something very similar in your post. That world that you daydream about would fit nicely into this one,

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/visions.htm#roads1

    and there are some obvious similarities.

    I believe that you are stating something along the intentions of my efforts; until people can sing their own song of abundance, an effort like this will not get very far. But I am also aiming for a particular octave, and I do not expect many to immediately begin hitting the notes. I doubt that I can really teach anybody anything, but can only inspire them to seek their own experiences and the development of their perspective.

    When I really get something going, we will see if it aligns with something that you are interested in.

    In a couple of weeks, I will do another "centering" post, like this one:

    http://projectavalon.net/forum4/show...red#post113469

    And yes, Ilie, another "visions" post will be coming, too.

    Hello Wade,

    I know you are busy so I did not bother you with "vision post" requests . I am waiting with high interest your new essay.

    Meanwhile I just finished Fuller's Grunch of Giants. That was tough to read... long phrases and long hyphenated words .

    I am now trying to determine what is next on the "developing a comprehensive perspective" curriculum: http://www.ahealedplanet.net/paradigm.htm#developing

    Ilie! I expect nothing less than for you to do something like read Grunch of Giants.

    What made that short work relevant to my writings was that it was about the first time that Fuller gave a nod to the global elite's machinations and the wonders of global capitalism. Bucky did it just before he died. Steve Meyers said that Bucky did it because he was in his twilight years and could not be penalized too heavily for making his observations (that was almost a deathbed perspective, when he just let it rip with his truth). On the kind of machinations that Bucky described in Grunch, others have done it in far greater breadth and depth. The rad lefties are particularly good at that.

    Grunch was not so much a part of that curriculum that Bucky developed, but was more of an aspect of Bucky's perspective that he was silent on until his later years. In his Utopia or Oblivion, Bucky outlined the subjects that a good comprehensive thinking curriculum might have. I have heard of schools modeled after his vision. His curriculum can probably be found on the Internet someplace. It is a pretty rigorous curriculum, the kind that would take many years to complete. But even then, it is just school. The big learning happens after we graduate and try out our bright ideas in the real world.

    Ah, that essay… I have been here before, in the creative mode, drawing the many seemingly disparate subjects into something resembling a comprehensive whole. When I am in this mode, especially grappling with the material, it is mentally unsettling. Often, I simply ingest as much diverse information as possible and let it gestate for a while. Eventually, the connections are made, comprehension dawns, and it settles into something like multi-disciplinary order. But it is quite a struggle to hit all my goals, not overreach, not water it down, and provide something that can help enlighten and inspire, while also dealing with our world's stark realities.

    Writing my site put me through an emotional wringer many times. This essay, however, should not be an emotionally harrowing experience to write or read. It will deal at length with my first love, science, but that is also what is daunting about it. Digesting the findings of such diverse disciplines, and making anything useful from it, is something that I wish I had ten years to do, full time. I do not get the luxury, and I have recently been wrestling with the boundaries that I will need to erect. There are a million rabbit holes to disappear into, and most of them are inviting ones that I could spend years and years exploring. But there is only so much available time in a lifetime, and I have already used up a great deal of it.

    As I get along on the essay, I am realizing that in some ways I can only sketch the picture, and others will have to fill in the details. The devil is in the details, but what I hope that my readers walk away with are some big, challenging and inspiring ideas. Heaven on Earth is not that far away, not if enough of us can simply imagine it.

    Oh well, back to the grindstone.

    Best,

    Wade

    Hi Wade,
    with all due respect you make so much reference to history.
    In looking at our history we become stuck in the past, basing all our future decisions on the viewpoints of the dead and their peers.
    I like the last post. It is a way of moving forward with our current times and alleviating the layman from his turmoil gained from his dictated educational and parental understandings of life.
    In order to pioneer new FE and people who want to develop it the human race would put an end to being so analytical, and not strive to strike any chord in history but concentrate on their own individual needs for survival and helping the people that try to help develop them without such deep debate.
    Whilst I respect your posts, you speak of people that try to compartmentalise their own feelings and justifications of their research, if others haven't been laid open through their studies to do it for them since.
    If people are/were encouraged to use their imagination without scientific retribution or question then I wouldn't have felt the need to read this thread at all.
    Justifying the concepts of anyone, leaves you open to your own faith and beliefs too.
    It is a fine line to educate people with a knowledge that is based on individual understandings, since it only serves to leave little room for the unaware/uneducated to acheive understandings of their own without being belittled or criticised by those who consider themselves the masters.
    Based on the fear most of us have been taught from birth, it would appear to a lot of people that there is then little sense in trying to change things for a better future, since even the do gooders think they are otherwise better.
    This threads purpose seems to be pushing around thoughts and questions on FE with other intellectuals, whilst not reaching the right audience. The public.
    This is where the layman is not so stupid. FE devices are most probably being developed as I write, out of poverty and necessity. That man does not have enough time or interest to display his ideas on the Internet, but he does have the will to survive.

    Hi Golden Wonder:

    I doubt that we are going to have enough in common to have a fruitful discussion.

    Good luck,

    Wade

    Dear Robert,

    Wow, that is quite a jammed packed post and honestly I'm not sure how to respond to all of your points. I would have to read all your references, sit back and tap my own latent abundance to understand much of the scientific points made and spend numerous hours to comprehend all of what you have written. I guess I could say I listen with my heart first and often have to literally go up to my brain's intellectual components (when mind is not getting a knowing either) and research info to fully comprehend the message one is attempting to portray.

    The one thing I can say is I agree that an abundant world should start with teaching our children to tap their abundance and not suppress it. My heart sure can hear this loud and clear with a "knowing of truth in what you say". To late for this person and my only grown son, but I can do this with the little ones today and certainly try to catch myself when using old beliefs/systems when interacting with all people not just the young ones.

    I do appreciate your info laden post, with much food for thought for sure. Thank you and Welcome
    Love and Light Always/Sandy

    Quote Posted by Butangeld (here)
    I have been trying to imagine a way in which we might begin to make a 'vow of abundance', as you say, real. Here is a suggestion of a way in which we can in some way think in abundance individually. I want to explain why I think that questions themselves are a kind of scarcity.

    It is a waste of time and energy trying to change someone's belief toward your own. Belief precedes knowledge and a-priori knowledge is really to know nothing at all. Changing one's belief is a private affair and is a manifestation of free-will. And it is my belief that if everyone were to make their own beliefs and not just have them fitted by someone else we would be living in a better world.

    If belief is the fuel then questions are the engine with logic the design. I spent 3 years studying one philosopher after another, talking them up and then cutting them down using questions and logic. If you could find their underlying belief that set them off in the first place, you could make a question that burnt the belief. The underlying assumption though, is that things that are true are unchanging, absolute and immutable (take your pick). That the truth exists to be discovered and exists objectively outside of our control.

    If however, we assume that we are each a part of the ongoing creation of our time and space, then in our reality the truth is not necessarily fixed and unchanging. We make truth. Questions are by their nature a form of scarcity. This is so, because if a question could illicit an infinite number of valid responses then it is no longer a question. If the answer to a question could be wibble then the question has failed to be specific enough to find a comprehensible answer.

    I must admit to having been fixated by the linguistic mechanism known as the question for about 15 years. I spend a good deal of time day-dreaming and have written much of this stuff down in the hope of making something of it one day. It was doing a philosophy degree that led me to this line of thought.

    I have concluded after all this time that questions are mostly inappropriate for our purposes in daily affairs and matters of the imagination and thinking in general. They limit the number of available answers, and so the 'truth'. They have to limit the answers or it is less a question and more an assertion. Questions can often tell you more about the ones asking the questions than can the answers from those getting questions. I imagine a world while day-dreaming sometimes, where 3 fundamental differences are present:
    • when you dream you visit the mind and reality of another individual
    • no-one really believes in death as an absolute end, but commonly see it as the start of a journey
    • and finally, a world where our languages lack any form of questions, both structurally and grammatically

    I have tried the 3rd one and can confirm that it is possible to conduct all types of thought and communication without using any questions. It is both strange and fun. If there is information you require and would normally use a question to get that information, like something as simple as asking the time, then you firstly assert what you think the information is and if you have no idea then make it up, and then most likely you will get better information, such as the right time from someone with a watch.

    The time must be 5 o'clock
    - no, the time is 4:30

    Asserting made up facts is one way to illicit a knowledgeable response without using questions. Another way could be negation.

    "There are no bases on the dark side of the moon"
    "Actually, according to me, there are and if you'd spare me 5 minutes I'd tell you why..."

    I'd spare the conditional, since this is not really a question, but more of an ability to select a path.

    Anyhow, there it is. I fear you all think I may be mad.

    I am very interested in what you are doing Wade and wanted to share my thoughts on what a world with abundance as a primary concept would look like. If I have not laid out my thoughts clearly enough then perhaps I will try again.

    Hi Butangeld,

    Not to derail Wades Thread or mission here but, I just couldn't stop myself from responding. So here goes>>>>

    Seemingly you have a need to Question>>>>>>>>>Questioning

    Hi:

    I am going to probably be pretty quiet for the next week, with traveling and other chores. I was looking at my earlier “centering” post:

    http://projectavalon.net/forum4/show...red#post113469

    and it sums up my intended approach pretty well. My upcoming effort is going to disappoint many people, and that is OK. It is a big world, there are nearly seven billion of us on the planet right now, and my attempt to create a practical abundance choir is just one path out there. I have never seen anybody try to do it, and it seemed to be missing from all efforts that I have seen so far, so I had to try. I have long directed interested readers to where their interests lie:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/purpose.htm#pursuit

    and I have also made it clear whom I am not trying to reach with my efforts:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/purpose.htm#audience

    I am seeking a highly specific audience, and it will not be large. In the general population, less than one-in-a-thousand people are really interested in what I am saying, and that is fine. I am not trying to chum the Internet with some lowest-common-denominator “bait” to try to build a mass FE movement. Others have tried that and some are still trying, and I wish them the best. I am not trying to sneak past people’s ego defenses, scarcity-based conditioning and the rest of those barriers, to subtly get them to think about energy and abundance. Such people are not my target audience, but almost every newcomer “activist” tries to immediately see how work like mine can be used to reach the masses. I have no illusions of doing that, and do not seek to attract their attention. I am looking for people with a love of the truth and who are willing to put forth a little effort in its pursuit.

    I don’t want to go on Oprah or Ellen, etc. I am trying to help amass a nugget that might be able to create an environment of awareness that can support the people going after FE. We will not be the hundred heroes of FE:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/conun.htm#done

    and I am not looking for heroes. Brian O, Dennis, and Greer are. Heroes can mount their own efforts, or they can try to team up with the few other heroes out there. The heroes that can really make a difference in the FE arena need to be able to at least meet some of these qualifications:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/lessons.htm#howmany

    or strive to. Anything less will not cut it, not in this field, not these days. I also am not looking to lead a naïve approach:

    http://www.serendipity.li/fe/minefields.htm

    that denies the darkness, and so on. The darkness will eventually be redeemed, but only from a place of strength in the light. Nobody that I know of on the planet has proven themselves able to take on the dark ones, although the dark pathers’ days may well be numbered on Earth, at least the days of sitting on their throne.

    I am working on an essay that is intended to help people think comprehensively. If they can get there, the energy situation will not be relegated to some minor or forgotten role in the human journey, and the energy “solutions” that are currently being bandied about by the mainstream and “progressives” will not be distracting. I seek those who want to see the heart of matters. Dedicating one’s self to pursuing the truth and planetary healing is a momentous act for anybody to take, and should never be taken lightly. It pretty much devoured my life, but I have no regrets.

    I do not ask anybody to experience what I did, and I hope that seeing the big picture does not require people to go through the meat grinder to get there. If it does, then I am truly on a fool’s errand.

    As events have played out, it looks like I will not get that essay completed until next year. I am sorry that it has taken so long, but I have many demands on my time. If I could work on it full time, I could get a passable version finished a few months from now. But I do not have that luxury. I also do not want to put something out there that is half-baked, and the task feels overwhelming at times. Every time that I do some research, it opens up new avenues, and I go down enticing rabbit holes in my attempt to make a worthy effort.

    For instance, I have read quite a few books on humanity and energy in the past several years. That study largely began when I was introduced to the Peak Oil crowd in 2003:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/hooked.htm

    I wrote my initial energy racket essay

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/energy.htm

    before encountering Fuller:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/roots.htm#fuller

    or the Peak Oilers.

    A couple of years ago, I read Energy, Engine of Evolution.

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/upcoming.htm#_edn3

    A lot of my reading in the past two years was pursuing subjects that that book broached, including several books on evolution (including molecular biology) and geophysics. It also dovetailed to readings that I was already doing on anthropology, both cultural and physical - about a dozen books on that subject - including recent findings from studying our Great Ape cousins.

    There was a fairly bigoted notion of “history” in the West’s past that is waning somewhat, where people without written records had no history. So, much of that “anthropology” that I studied amounted to reconstructions of dead civilizations. I also read several more books on energy and humanity, from how the USA’s economy developed to how “peak wood” preceded Peak Oil to how devastating the European invasions were to the native flora, fauna and peoples around the world, which I have been studying for a long time:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/america.htm#before

    Economics is my bag, so I did a little reading of Karl Marx’s work and other works of the famous economists. I read economics and business news for at least an hour each day, which began in earnest as the meltdown took place:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/savings.htm#enron

    I have been reading a lot on medicine once again, probably spurred by my participation in this forum. So, that is a lot of territory to cover, but in the end, if I had not been radicalized by my journey with Dennis:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/advent.htm#hitting

    I highly doubt that I would have ever had anything particularly useful to say. I cannot overemphasize that experience is the real teacher in the FE milieu. Most of what I learned I doubt can be taught, but there are other ways to get radicalized that are less life-threatening, and for those who had some kind of experience that opened their eyes:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/paths.htm#scouts

    the FE milieu is probably going to be a lot easier to understand.

    The energy and humanity books that I have read over the past several years all had the same general framework as my original energy racket essay, of being largely organized as a historical narrative, and it is easy to see why. I doubt that I can state it any more succinctly than this:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/upcoming.htm#succinct

    The primary upshot of my upcoming essay will be that FE can break the scarcity-based paradigms that guide human thinking and action. No civilization has ever lived in true abundance before, but relative plenty usually brought peace, at least for a while, until the civilization burned through its energy supply, whether it was megafauna, trees, arable land, and so on. Now, we are nearing the end of the Hydrocarbon Age. The Peak Oilers understand how much industrialized civilization depends on that energy, but they are all stuck in Level 3:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/paradigm.htm#chart

    I never met or heard of an exception, but that is normal for any clique. One Peak Oiler said that he never saw anybody move across the line, from being a Peak Oiler to a “there is plenty of oil” advocate, or moving the other way. That is similar to Max Planck’s observation on how science advances funeral by funeral:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/energy.htm#real

    Like Greer:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/journey.htm#addiction

    I have found that nearly everybody becomes addicted to their point of view, which is deeply rooted in their political-economic status. Fear and scarcity is the glue that holds us there. What if we had real abundance? What might that world look like? I have some guesses:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/abund.htm#abundance

    and have spent my life in the pursuit of that issue. I do not know if I will live to see it begin to come to pass, but I cannot think of anything more worthwhile to pursue. I know that I am a freak, but maybe I can be let out of my cage long enough to get that ball rolling. The technology to do it has been on the planet longer than I have been alive:

    http://www.ahealedplanet.net/camelot.htm#underground

    I am looking for others who can attain and hold the practical abundance vision. What exactly will come of it, I do not know, but I am trying to find out. We will see how it goes.

    Best,

    Wade
