Energy: The Foundation of Global Sustainability
Global sustainability: what exactly does that mean? Sustainability refers to the art of conducting business from a holistic perspective, with priorities lying in the recycling of natural resources, maintaining a fertile planet and striving to live in harmony with all of humanity and with all life on this planet. However, we are not currently living in a global environment that is able to support itself (energy crisis, economic crisis, environmental crisis etc.), and the root of this global instability is our current paradigm on “energy” and electricity. If we wish to overcome the challenges we face on this planet, than we must first update the way we think about energy.
Lester Brown is the president of the Earth Policy Institute in Washington. In his book Plan B he spends the first half listing fact after fact about deforestation, soil erosion, land infertility, population issues like starvation and lack of fresh water, dirty forms of energy like coal and oil, pollution, climate change and the list goes on.
He tells us stuff that we know we already know (we’ve been hearing about energy, economic and environmental issues our whole life), but he uses facts to tell us where we stand. And quite frankly, it’s a sight for sore eyes.
In the vast diversity of issues he writes about, there remains one constant. Every issue he mentions is connected to all of the others, in one way or another. In fact, everything on this planet and every one of us is connected in one way or another. So, if we truly expect to change this path we are on, from dismal to flourishing, then we must start with something that will have most effect; something that is connected to everything.
And that is energy.
When talking about sustainability, energy is the single most important issue to discuss because it has a powerful impact in every other issue we face. Energy is embedded in everything: the economy and every industry within it depends on energy. As well as, the ability to provide your family with food, water, shelter and warmth. To have a decent standard of living, you require cheap available energy.
What is both impressive and alarming is that the planet is currently in an energy crisis. How we get energy today has some serious problems. We exploit the planet, pollute the atmosphere and fight wars over energy resources. I know, I fought in one (Sgt Joshua T. Vojtisek USMC Veteran).
However, it need not be this way.
In the second half of Lester Brown’s book Plan B, he has an optimistic tone and he writes about how we can improve upon our situation – and its beautiful. He advocates the use of free energy systems like wind turbines, solar panels, hydroelectric and geothermal systems to help offset the use of fossil fuel (Brown 118). Which again is beautiful. However, with the rush to electric vehicles and the global population over seven billion, wind turbines and solar panels alike are not going to be enough to meet our global energy needs.
“Renewable generation is estimated to rise to 25% of global gross power generation in 2018, up from 20% in 2011, and 19% in 2006” (Smith). In other words, if we are able to produce even 50% of our energy needs from current renewable energy source, like wind and solar, by year 2020, that would be a miracle. The good news is, I believe in miracles. I believe we can produce 100% of the global energy needs from free-clean-renewable energy systems by 2020.
So, with such grand optimism, what more can we do? As it turns out, there is “another way”. New discoveries have been made and they have revealed some amazing things about the nature of energy. The only problem is that the discoveries made in particle physics are not being recognized in electrical engineering. The Electron Theory in electrical engineering (that is at the foundation of our modern energy infrastructure) is priceless, but it’s time has passed.
It is time to usher in a new era. It is time to implement a new Electron Theory that will dramatically change the way we think about energy – forever.
We currently think of energy as exhaustible; energy is finite and we will eventually run out of its usefulness. This is reflected in the laws of thermodynamics where the usefulness of energy always decreases and you will never get more energy out then you put in. The laws of thermodynamics have been scientific dogma for hundreds of years, and they are often thought to be unchallengeable. However, the fact of the matter is this: within the thermodynamic textbook it states “strong gradients are know to disobey the second law of thermodynamics” (Bedini 91). Therefore, they can no longer be referred to as Laws, rather, as principles.
Going one step further, electrical engineering assumes that we live in a material universe comprised of matter/particles. From this view, an Electron is seen as a tiny piece of Matter that rotates around the Nucleus of an Atom – similar to how Earth and Jupiter rotate around the Sun (Valkenburgh 1-3). With this material view of the universe, if we wish to extract usable energy from the matter around us (like coal and oil for example), we must do so by force.
This is called combustion technology where we set things on fire to harness electrical and mechanical energy – a dirty and expensive way of harnessing energy. Contrary to this view of the universe is that of particle physics. In fact, we do not live in a material universe like once thought; we live in an energetic universe where the concept of “not enough energy” does not exist.
A phrase that is often used when talking about universal-free energy systems is “it is impossible to get something from nothing.” In other words, your can’t get energy out of nothing. I do not contest this statement; however, we now know that, in the universe, there is no such thing as nothing. All matter is essentially energy and we can see this in Albert Einstein’s Relativity formula (e=mc²), where e represents “energy,” and mc²represents “matter moving at the speed of light, squared” – all physical matter is actually energy (Whitlock).
Furthermore, all of the “empty space” that is between each piece of physical matter is by no means empty space. On the contrary, the 99.9999% of the universe that we once thought to be completely empty has been proven to be an abundant field of pure-unending energy, from which all matter is birthed.
It is true that you cannot get something out of “nothing,” but you can get something out of “everything.” In simplistic terms, there is enough energy in space of an empty coffee cup to boil away all of the oceans on Earth’s. (Vacuum Fluctuations). This is a scientific fact, and was also a favorite quote of nobel prize winning physicist Richard Feynman.
Okay, so we now know that, yes, it is possible to disobey the second law of thermodynamic, and we have discovered Vacuum Energy (aka Zero Point Energy, the Unified Field or the Higgs Field), an incomprehensibly large energetic reservoir. All that remains, after these two understandings, is to educate one another while allow time for the collective conscious of humanity to evolve along with this new knowledge, thus, revolutionize the entire world.
If they [quantum fluctuations of the vacuum] can be tapped, the impact upon our civilization will be incalculable. Oil, Coal, Nuclear, hydrogen, will become obsolete – and so would many of our worries about environmental pollution (Clark).
Now, replacing combustion technology with the use of universal energy is a paradigm shifting concept, and it is not likely to happen over night. Rather, it requires time to go through the three stages of response that all new and revolutionary ideas are subject to:
Phase one: “It’s a crazy idea – impossible!” This is the first phase in which groundbreaking ideas are rejected outright by narrow mindedness and the fear of going against the norm. We began this phase during the life of Nikola Tesla in the late 19th, early 20th century. Tesla was a world renowned inventor and the creator of “alternating current” (AC electricity), the system that provides electricity to our modern world. Tesla also invented the means of wirelessly transmitting electricity to anywhere in the world via his Tesla Coils, which, at the time was incomprehensible and Tesla was labeled as crazy person. However, today, Nikola Tesla is know as the Genius Who Lit The World.
Phase two: “This Idea may be possible, but I still don’t believe it.” This is the phase when the evidence for an idea begins to overpower the opinions of other, and this is the phase we are currently in with regards to harnessing the infinite source of vacuum energy. Currently, there are hundreds of scientists, inventors and mathematicians alike, from around the world, working passionately towards the development and application of this new energy source, and the positive evidence is undeniable.
Phase three: “I said it was a good idea all along.” This is were scientists and individuals begin jumping on the bandwagon as to avoid being left behind intellectually. With scientific evidence and experimental proofs it is only a matter of time before the scientific community, and society as a whole, comes to realizes that there is “another way” and that we need not be in an energy crisis anymore.
Now that we have the understanding that energy is at the root of global sustainability, I would like to highlight two individuals who have spent their entire lives working to develop new energy technologies that promise to resolve the global energy crisis in a very short period of time – faster than the internet revolution.
(1). John Searl is an honorary professor of mathematics and the inventor of the SEG (Searl Effect Generator). The SEG is a magnetic motor that is able to power itself – it’s its own prime mover – thus providing unlimited electricity day or night, with zero environmental impact. The SEG is designed and engineered to be perfectly in tune with the laws of nature. If we look at the Galaxy, at the Solar System, at our Planet or even at the Atoms within us, we will see that the nature of the universe is “to spin.” We do not live is a static motionless universe; we live in a dynamic perpetually moving universe that is governed by the laws of nature.
John Searl, and his successor Fernando Morris (CEO & Chief Design Engineer at Searl Magnetics Inc.), have uncovered the laws of nature in a math formula called “The Law of the Squares” or “The Magic Squares.” Simply put, the SEG mock-up (that can be seen on the internet) is tangible proof that it is possible to program permanent magnets with “magnetic wave functions.” It’s these wave functions that, when interacting with one another, create a self perpetuating magnetic motor capable of powering a city with no adverse environmental effects (Morris). This is the paradigm shift that is upon us.
(2). In addition to John Searl and the SEG, and even more epic, is Mehran Keshe and the “Keshe Electric Generator”. M.T. Keshe attended Queen Bay College in England, where he graduated as a nuclear engineer specializing in reactor technology. During that time he began playing with his own theory of the creation of gravity. He knew his theory was correct because he could see it working in his mind’s eye. In the same way, Nikola Tesla was able to see and understand the workings of the AC electric generator (the system that powers the world) in his mind’s eye before ever constructing it.
Keshe was able to independently finance his research and develop his theory to the point where he could prove it scientifically by replicating the exact gravitational and magnetic field conditions of the earth, in a small scale system, which, like the SEG promises to end the global energy crisis overnight (Keshe).
So there we have it – Keshe Vs. Searl: The Race to Change The World.
Two independent technologies, both promising to revolutionize the entire world and both with a global community of scientists, inventors, and educator alike dedicated to the shift.
Now, as mentioned, we as a society are in phase two of revolutionary idea integration, where more and more individuals are beginning to understand and see the new energy paradigm. It is only a matter of time before the understanding of cosmic infinite energy becomes common knowledge.
Over the past one hundred years we have come to realize that our modern energy infrastructure is causing much more harm than it is good. As a result, we have found ourselves in an energy crisis that is fueling environmental degradation, as well as economic volatility caused by commoditized energy sources (like coal and oil). However, within all grand problems there resides tremendous opportunity – the opportunity to change the entire world for the better – and it all starts with your understanding of the concept of “Energy.”
