Today it is the 17th of August 2020 and I am celebrating my birthday. Electricity is still a necessary propulsion for many devices and machines, but in a certain way less important, because things do need much less energy than years ago. In addition to that, governments invested in renewable energy worldwide and researcher and developer did not only find new ways of producing, storing and transporting renewable electricity, the medium's efficiency increased and therefore they reduced clearly… Continue

The sun hangs low above the Pacific. Wisps of clouds begin to take on tinges of orange and red. Silhouettes, lit from behind by the setting sun, dot the horizon for miles in each direction. Each one holds in their hands a different tool, a different toy. Some hold hula hoops, some swords or staves. Some spin nunchaku, some poi, or balls on chains.
All stand in silence, waiting to hear the cue to begin. Then, as the sun touches the water, a song comes from the huge crowd on the beach.… Continue

I think the future of money lies in a change of philosophy, Think Collectively, Act Individually. Our recent problems have arisen because people have given away both their money an their power away, and its high time we take it back, and then pass it on ourselves. This means we need to think about the wh*** world, the wh*** economic system, we need to learn and think about our money, not just how it can help us individually, but how it can benefit the global community as a wh***. This may seem… Continue

Numerous cultures all over the world have a concept called a rain dance, a ceremonial dance that calls upon the spirits to give us down here below the life-giving gift of water.

At 4pm local time in every place on the planet people will gather and dance in whichever way they like in order to remind us all that nature… Continue

Following the 6th Objective of Alchemy’s assignment I started a funding operation among my friends and family directed to help empower one girl or woman with better access to education or economic opportunity.
While talking to my people about the aim of the founding operation, I came acquainted that most of them were not able to understand the difference between giving money away for plain CHARITY to the third world and donating to support a… Continue

- What you have matters more than what you lack (If you’ve got a bicycle, consider what you can build based on that, rather than worrying about not having a car, a truck, a metal shop.)
This is important to understand i believe. Why? Well because, it would seem that so much time is devoted to bringing in resources. So
much money spent on just trying to bring whats over 'there' to this
place over 'here'. We could use the resources that the country can
provide and… Continue

Next week it will be the 10th anniversary of the day the aliens landed. The government has declared a national holiday and there will be fireworks, all the usual stuff. But not many people will be celebrating.
For one thing, there's another monster typhoon brewing in the Pacific. All those fancy new fusion generators don't seem to have fixed the weather. I remember the first television interviews when the aliens tried to explain what they could and couldn't do for us. They were like… Continue

There many ways to save energy, generate it more cheaply, and use renewable sources. How I would do it is focus on adding much more insulation to my house, switching over to heating, cooling, and hot water heating with geothermal energy from below my house, and telecommuting rather than taking the commuter train. Many people should be doing similarly, and we would save a huge percentage of our energy.
Helping my neighbors do the same kind of things will help me as well, because then we… Continue

The sun had finally set, and our plane came down over the runway. We all hastily exited the plane that we had been sitting in for the past twelve hours. As we entered the air port, we were greeted by a wave of heat. My group sat down and we all started to fill out our forms. When we had answered all of the questions asked by the customs officer, he told us, "Welcome to India."
My school trip to India was an amazing, eye opening experience. We drove through the… Continue

This mission is a difficult one for many people, myself included. Food is fundamentally essential for life, of course, so you would think we would think about it more. "We" being the part of the world that has arranged that we have plenty of food, we don't have to worry about it too much. So what do we need to do? And what about the rest of the world?…
