Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I'm sitting with the Farming and Agriculture Ministry of Earth [Team of brilliant engineers and scientists]. In the centre of a very popular and very beautiful skyscraper restaurant. Even a mile in the sky the fauna and flora is rich throughout the establishment small hydroponics are filled with fruit and other various goodies from nature, free for the picking. The layout is superbly efficient and totally automated. Regular robotic arms circulate the restaurant and have been adapted coyly with a glove and green arm to hind the harsh exoskeleton of the robotic work, with precision it sprays and provides nutrients to the plant life. Each one blooming strongly with fruit that looks unbelievable fresh.

The ministers and myself are chatting casually about current development and global resources in food and areas which are currently under regeneration, whilst other areas are under farming for the first time. Our screen has options for a local menu or something more exotic. This is no payment and the waiting time is minimal as most is prepared either through automation or through a team of enthusiastic volunteers who just simply want to give something back - Artisan of their fields. I place an order for a local mixed vegetarian pasta and sweet chocolate cake for a dessert.

The self service counter means that - shock! horror! I must go and grab my own plate, must in doing so I get to stretch my legs, admire the view and enjoy the salvation as I can see my meal looking so tantalising. The chat continues and as I partake in the meal, a local minister and the inform me to look out over the city. The circular shape and pragmatic design allows for no space to be wasted and a regular local influx of food to be harvested in bulk. Food is divided and sent off to some of the city and the rest is then available for home order if people decide they wish to cook, or meals prepared for them can be collected at a more local hub, similar to a fast food chain. The farming within the city enlivens it with colour and nature as well as a scientific beauty, lessons are taking place as school children are being taught about the systems in place and before I know it each every part of my meal has evaporated from my plate. The taste so heavenly and combine with such a beautiful area caused such a lose of awareness. Heavenly.

In the distance another minister points out her free range farming from animal live stock and a one on them has kindly brought over the dessert I orders. Like a child in a sweet store i dive in! Oh the chocolate is out of this world and the cream texture, as i was informed, is a direct result from such loving care for the animals. Providing not only a better taste, but significant improvement to the nutrients.

Who would have thought lunch would have been such and adventure for the senses. Ah until dinner shall I cook myself and experiment with the finest materials on the planet or unwind knowing that it can be collected on the way home ready to eat - even those choices put a smile on my face. That or the nutrient soaked cocoa has let so many endorphins enter my system I'm on a high. What brings true contentment to this situation. Anyone on planet Earth can enjoy what I'm enjoying. ^_^

Thanks for bringing up vertical farming, something that's often overlooked. Here's to hoping that your vision of the future becomes a reality.

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**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
