No More OIL in an EMS ?
We use oil in our current system, because we are able to convert oil to other products which, when burnt, produce large amounts of useable energy for consumption in our cars, to produce electricity, and for many other things that we use to run our system. The goal here is to get a lot of energy to be able to do work. Our system runs on our ability to produce more and more all the time. Obviously there are many other forms of energy available but they do not yield the quantities of energy that we would like to be able to produce at an ever increasing rate. And that is the crux of the matter - that our current system is based on the belief that we require to make more and more and that our survival depends on this. The problem is that the more we make, the more people we need to consume all the products thus increasing the need for more products, however without considering that the amount of oil on this planet is obviously finite. And it is not a valid argument to say that (according to some) oil will not run out for hundreds or even thousands of years. It is irrelevant when it will run out because it surely will at some point. And if we have based our system on the need for oil, then what happens when we do run out?
But, since we are able to question the very starting point of our system, we can rather ask why do we need to always produce more and more. Why can we not instead find a way to live in equilibrium with our environment? If we were considering what was best for all - and not just blindly following the belief that we required to produce and consume more and more all the time - then we could establish more effective ways of using the energy that is already available in great supplies. Imagine the billions and billions of dollars of research that are being directed towards oil based energy and other forms like coal (non-renewable forms) that could instead be directed to finding out how we can use the energy that is more readily available in a way that is more efficient and less destructive to our environment. At the moment, oil itself is a commodity - thus it is being used because it can be restricted and thus a price can be placed on it. Solar energy, in so far as it is available to everyone equally, cannot be restricted in the same way - and thus in a system based on profit - an obvious source of energy will be downplayed and this is why there is very little infrastructure for people to utilize solar energy. Imagine if every house had for example a solar generator - there would be no reason to buy electricity from a power company every month or to buy gas to heat the home or to buy fuel for one's car. Obviously the solar converters that now exist are not quite effective for that, but look at the amount of research being done in that field versus in the oil industry. In the current system, research and consideration tend to follow money - thus when we have established an Equal Money System - we will be able to explore all the possibilities in this world and not only the ones that are able to be wielded to create profit for a few.
article in the Daily Mail, there are light bulbs created in the early 1900's (1909-1912) which are still burning to this day. Of course, a company like General Electric would never produce these bulbs in mass amounts because they would put themselves out of business. Thus we can see an example where we have deliberately not made something the best that is possible simply because we have a system based on profit.
In an Equal Money System oil will no longer be used. Oil is not the best form of energy to use as it is not readily available and creates polluting side effects (for example carbon emissions.)
We have not addressed the use of oil in plastics, which is another driving force behind the functionality of our current system - but again, will plastics be necessary in an EMS? Would we need to store things in plastic so that we can stock them by the thousands in warehouse sized retail stores? Or would we rather produce only what is necessary, in quantities according to what is needed and distributed in a way that they do not need to be stored for long periods of time? For the effects of plastic in our environment, read about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
It is fascinating that we, as humans, believe that oil is necessary to our lives, which only indicates how we have accepted ourselves as consumers only and do not consider anything outside of what we are programmed to see and believe. Perhaps it will not even be necessary to use energy as we now understand it. That will likely not happen in the near future, but I don't see why it is not possible at some point. Imagine, if each part of existence were moving together in harmony, each supporting what is best for each other, then why would energy be necessary to move? Perhaps movement would mean something altogether different than what we now believe it to mean. Energy only seems necessary when you have to force one part of reality into bending to your will. If you were actually here as an Equal part of reality, then why would movement require more than a collective agreement?
Something to consider.
