The Photonic Energy Web
I mentioned to my travel colleague that yesterday's post
called for a "Unified Photonic Solid State Energy Web".
I told him that not that long ago,
I spoke of the Solar Hydrogen Economy.
But today, I see more emphasis on a muscled up electrical grid
that receives energy from many sources and many places.
Every roof and wall structure that sees sufficient photon bombardment
will be coated with power paints that convert some of those photons
Every skyscraper and office building will have glass coverings
with laser etched coatings,
that block the sunlight from the inside, (if necessary)
and convert many of these photons
Every highway, road, and rail bed will be coated with surfaces
which not only cool the road, they provide the energy
for the new age of personal transportation devices, PRTs and trains
that induct energy from charging plates inbedded in rest stops,
at red lights, and in the rail bed itself.
Every parking meter will also have an inductive charging plate
that can instantly bring the PTD to "full ready".
The Unified Photonic Solid State Energy Web,
will be as smart as it is powerful, fully capable of powering
an advanced civilization that has said goodbye to our
Over the years, I have heard respectable fire worshipping technobes
say something like this;
"It would be great to have everything running on the sun,
but the sun doesn't shine all the time."
I just look at them with that raised eyebrow look.
"It doesn't? I wasn't aware of that."
The statement is similiar to those who say that
"solar does not match our electrical peak".
If you build the plant 500 miles to the west,
it matches it pretty well.
Buckminster Fuller used to talk about a Global Electrical Grid,
a grid that would transport the energy that falls to this good earth,
every day, every hour, every moment,
to wherever it was needed.
Imagine a nonpolluting, sustainable, unified photonic energy web
that allows for a new culture, and a new civilization;
A world culture that would consider the invasion of others
to control their resources as truly barbaric behavior, and
as culturally acceptable
Imagine a new civilization based on the best tools
that humankind can create,
not the most destructive weapons it can employ.
Imagine a new world run solely on the energy of our Sun.
No longer would the World Soul be enslaved by the Karma
of the dead bones and flesh we liberate through our fires,
For we will have transcended those old bones,
and moved boldly towards the sublime.
