Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

In 2011, if there was a pandemic, I'd be immediately calling on my global team at the Human Powered School which has just celebrated it's first birthday, and has also just hit one million members, and now has three non-virtual schools in community centers (including one in my own city of Somerville, Massachusetts). Most of our members are kids and teenagers, all of whom have been enthusiastically teaching others, and learning from others, all kinds of very simple ways to take better care of human bodies, as well as ways to use the energy and matter that human bodies produce in more beneficial ways.

So, when I call on all these amazing young people, and their fellow teachers and students of all ages, I call on them to be real heroes, and to make a small commitment to some short period of time (an hour a day, every day, for the next two weeks, perhaps) to go out there into their own communities (online and off) and show others what they've already learned how to do so that others can do it too and be healthier in some valuable way.

Because, no matter what else is going on in the world, be it a serious pandemic, or just your average complicated, confusing, and occasionally amusing life, being able to have your basic physical needs met makes everything easier, and using kid power to make that happen is a truly fantastic use of a very valuable and creative and passionate resource that is often not appreciated enough in modern society. As a teacher, I have experienced first hand how awesome kids can be when you give them the opportunity to play a very real role in taking better care of the world. And as any parent or teacher can tell you, a young person on a mission is quite the force of nature! There's a wh*** lot of power in these "new and improved" humans, I tell ya!

And... while our Human Powered School team is working lovingly on increasing everyone's abilities to get their basic needs met (wh*** food, clean water, fresh air, warmth, light, and the freedom to express their body's extra matter and energy), the adults are free to focus on increasing people's ability to get the higher levels of human needs met - quality emotional input and output (such as counseling and emotional first aid), quality intellectual input and output (such as sharing research data and ideas on policy planning), and quality spiritual input and output (clarifying the various perspectives on morality and ethics so that people have some guidance when answering difficult questions). This way all of humanity's needs are taken good care of, while we all focus on moving through our challenges with grace and balance.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
