Above is an illustration of our journey as it might have appeared to Kardashev, if he had still been around now.
He is known for his characterisation of stages of civilisation.
Currently, we are somewhere between Kardashev 0.5, and Kardashev 1.0, in the age of Bitcoin creation.
Bitcoin appears to fit into this scenario of transition in a very surprising way.
When first introduced, Bitcoin was produced entirely from conventional secondhand power.
By that is meant power produced by energy extracted from Earth, which was put there in the first place by the sun, thus is secondhand…
So 2020 was a big year.
The biggest in thousands of years, I would argue.
It wasn’t the best of experiences for most of us.
I saw many of my own “achievements” and ambitions dashed, by a chain of events no-one could have predicted.
And I know the same applies to the majority of people.
But do I feel bad?
No, I feel great.
Not because I had a minor unexpected upturn at the end of 2020, but because it looks to me like we are on the cusp of a real brave new world, one that really will put…
Earth and sun are a system.
The sun supplies and has supplied all energy on Earth, for all time.
For all of nature, that energy has been adequate, until we came along (Humanity).
As we became more technological, we started to use money to represent the capital of Earth, all of which is stored energy of various kinds, created from sunlight.
As we got cleverer, we started to “Generate power”, selling it at profit using the capital gearchain of money. By processing some types of the stored energy of Earth, releasing that stored energy built up over hundreds of thousands…
I am not even going to waste time searching out a nice picture for this story, who cares anyway.
And besides, this message won’t come as good news to many, I bet.
You are ill, and it ain’t Covid.
It is something much worse.
I am going to call it Howard Hughes Syndrome, or Maybe Michael Jackson syndrome, you’ll see why.
How do I know?
It isn’t because I think I had some kind of revelation.
Nope, I’ve known something like this illness all my life.
I was brought up with it.
So I know how to recognise…
So you wrote a new story, the first in a while, your latest analysis of the Grand Energy Ponzi (GEP), maybe.
Of course we can fix it.
But only if folks know about it.
In the lead up to publishing the story, you were responding to the GEP relevant stories of others, receiving regular acknowledgements and engaging in dialog, seeing your followers list very slowly but steadily grow, with a couple of new followers per day.
Publish the story and… nothing.
So you publish another, with the same information from a different perspective.
Not even from all the…
I just wrote yet another seemingly futile piece on this issue, the only real issue in the coming Cop26 summit, and it appears to have fallen on deaf ears, just as almost everything I write nowadays appears to do.
No change there.
How does this vital information that very few seem to understand, not get picked up and run with?
Because it is anti profit.
This is the whopper of all anti profit arguments, because it is actually not an argument, but an observation.
This is how to see the monster killing our species.
So of course it will never…
I am not going to beat about the bush (Its already burning).
The activity of profit is how all business functions.
Profit is all about exchanging various forms of capital, for various other forms, in the hope of making profit.
Capital is stored energy, which all comes from our planet.
So as long as we are practicing profit, we are taking capital, and thus the stored energy from our planet.
We are feeding on the energy of our planet.
All of that energy came from the sun, over a period of millions of years.
We use something that works a…
We’ve seen the power of the sun beginning to be unleashed.
We were warned about it, long ago, but chose not to recognise those warnings, choosing instead to throw them to the wind, the waves, oil, gold, money, in fact anything but solar power, all things scarce.
Hoping the heat domes and all their side effects like localised flooding will go away with the seasons whilst carrying on ignoring the warnings makes no sense at all.
We need to stop messing around, and switch to solar immediately.
That means doing everything necessary to the economy, to make the change, right…
We see misinformation of all kinds, all around.
That is the very least thing we see.
Behind every narrative is a motive.
We might see that too.
Yet, we don’t really have the choice to choose what we believe.
That, is the conclusion we come to when we reach the end of story.
The story of humanity, choosing to believe whatever it wishes to believe.
Everything except the truth.
I love the Truman show.
My daughter loves it too.
Such thought provoking stuff.
What if humanity itself is the real Truman?
What if we really are under surveillance as a species, for the digest, or even entertainment of a higher order “Society” out there?
The Truman show itself could have been a tantalising clue.
“It’s all about you, humans!”
Would we even realise the grand conspiracy before destroying our home, our planet?
Seems unlikely, as long as we manage to deny all possibilities of any kind of higher intelligence than humans, I think.
Yet we were built to worship…
