A Word on Energy
No one before or since Einstein advanced our understanding of this crazy little thing called energy-but it is the basis for everything. Every piece of matter that ever was and ever will be started as pure energy and came down in vibration to stabilize into a flowing, pulsing article of matter.
In a matrix beyond our understanding, we live in an 'arrangement' of energy and we draw to us and repel things as our existence evolves. Our thoughts direct the energy we attract as well as those we push away like opposite poles of a magnet.
Magnetic energy will be the basis for our next transportation system. It has to be. Fuel has ruined us. We mismanaged our natural fuel reserves and emergency measures will be taken to preserve humanity or they won't but magnets provide a clean way to transport the lot of us for all that we choose to move about. And we are a moving community. Nomads and gypsies abound.
America has proven herself to be the unifying melting pot that should serve as an example to the world that people can live side-by-side in peace most of the time. Our recession, depression, concession to world order has pushed many past healthy limits. Our mental health situation is almost critical. People who have never experienced such ongoing stress are 'cracking up.' I've seen it over, and over, and over on this mountain. And we are only 1500 people.
I love energy-studying it, measuring it, trying to create more of it. The space-time continuum makes for excellent daydreaming. Ask Einstein. He pictured the theory of relativity long before he put it into words. He envisioned a man falling inside of an elevator which is also falling. The man inside the falling box is gravity-free which is a continuum of Isaac Newton's idea of this added force or power holding us all on this whirling planet.
If the space-time continuum puzzles you, find a juggler and watched him until you get it. Keep watching. He has to calculate his movement like a chess game, always keeping everything in motion. The key to time travel will be found in this puzzle. Back to the Future was a fun movie but they were going the wrong way.
Universal pain has been created and exists within the atmosphere. Our creative types, the artists, will have to work like madmen to put a dent in diffusing it; bringing it down into measurable pieces to be dismantled. All that fear and angst did was cause a firestorm. Nothing was resolved through fear and it never will be.
For all her strengths, America's greatest weakness has always been its ignorance on where to find wisdom. We looked to our mother countries and found nothing but ropes to the past. We looked to each other and we were weary from the journey. Finally, Padres came and began building the missions which are still preserved and revered as the gathering places of original religion in these United States. God was not here before we brought Him and these gathering places hold tremendous energies. Imagine all the prayers originated in these clay and mud structures.
The natives revered nature. We stripped nature. The natives lived in peace with the land. We strip-mined it and poisoned it until manifested as cancer when our systems couldn't flush it out. Our filters have been assaulted for so long that we have desensitized an entire generation. The tribes trusted that the buffalo would always provide for them. We decimated them into extinction for $1000 per pelt. Fortunes were built while reservations were made...
Hitesh has some good ideas and theories. Far advanced for his years. Read his work for a young, fresh perspective on the world at hand. It will take a movement of universal scale to save our planet from ourselves be it slowly through pollution or quickly through Korean hands at this point.
That's alot more words than I planned to write and not as many on energy as I hoped, SD
