Transcript

  1. 1. Loaves, Fishes and the Next World Wide Web
  2. 2. Loaves, Fishes and the Next World Wide Web Moving from Scarcity to Abundance
  3. 3. Once Upon a Time…
  4. 4. Once Upon a Time…
  5. 5. Once Upon a Time…
  6. 6. “Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.” -- Ernest Holmes
  7. 7. Reflection – July 1986 • Desperation • In-between jobs • Wanting to be useful • Seeking Divine Guidance
  8. 8. Reflection – July 1986 • Received… guidance • Working on project, came across material for different project • Enthusiastic but… • Unfocused, confused
  9. 9. “If you want to change the world… start with yourself.” • Sobriety (1990) • Spiritual connection (1995)
  10. 10. Sacred Days Retreat 1998 • Week in Portland • Group of Ministers • Goal of Ministry? • Day of Silence • Sacred Covenant
  11. 11. Sacred Days Retreat 1998 Vision: “Growing Abundance through the Wisdom of Love”
  12. 12. Setting Intentions • Ministry Name: “Loaves & Fishes” • To Awaken Qualities of Freedom & Joy • Teach, speak and empower others • Be living example
  13. 13. Loaves & Fishes • All 4 gospels • Principle of abundance • 5 loaves, 2 fish • Multitudes fed • Unconditional generosity
  14. 14. Unconditional Generosity • Spontaneous sharing & cooperation • What’s mine is yours • No scarcity, so no hoarding • Abundance made manifest
  15. 15. The Precious Gift
  16. 16. “10 Fish”
  17. 17. Taking More Action
  18. 18. Taking More Action
  19. 19. Seeing New Opportunities
  20. 20. Taking New Actions – July 2001
  21. 21. Service Creates Abundance…
  22. 22. “Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.” -- Ernest Holmes
  23. 23. …and New Opportunities Our Home: 100%... …solar-powered since 2003
  24. 24. …and New Opportunities Our Car: 100% electric, solar-powered
  25. 25. Solar Power Basics
  26. 26. Daytime: Too Much Energy  Day: system usually makes more energy than home can use  Extra energy flows back onto utility grid  Runs the electric meter backwards for credit  Extra power used by others
  27. 27. Nighttime: Not Enough Energy  Solar panels don’t work at night  Take back energy that’s “banked” during the day  Only pay bill once a year  On avg, use as much as you put in, your bill is ZERO!  “Net Metering” program  Energy Interdependence
  28. 28. Loaves, Fishes… and Abundance
  29. 29. Global Problem: Hunger and Starvation • UNWorld Food Program Report (Feb. 17, 2007) • 850 million people are “hungry or malnourished” • Half of this number are children • 18,000 children die of hunger and malnutrition every day • 1 death every 5 seconds
  30. 30. Scale Up to Global Level? • Global energy interdependence? • How far can shared electricity travel?
  31. 31. Abundance at the Speed of Light
  32. 32. Energy Supply vs. Demand • Enough sunlight falls on earth’s surface in 1 hour • To meet 100% of world’s energy needs for 1 full year
  33. 33. Energy Supply vs. Demand • Not Always… • the right kind of energy • at the right place • at the right time • Not a supply problem, but a distribution problem • Global Energy “Internet”
  34. 34. Global “Energy Internet” Does Not Exist Yet
  35. 35. U.S. Electrical Grid
  36. 36. European Electrical Grid
  37. 37. Regional Energy Grids Not Connected
  38. 38. Our World from a New Perspective
  39. 39. Connecting Regional Grids into Global Energy Network
  40. 40. Electricity: Basis of Civilization • Developed world: 2,000+ kWh per capita • Developing world: 1,000 – 2,000 kWh per capita • Poverty: Less than 1,000 kWh per capita
  41. 41. Electricity: Basis of Civilization • Clean drinking water and adequate water treatment systems • Refrigeration: stable food supply and medicines • Reduction of disease and infant mortality • Improved standard of living: stable population growth • Correlates with high literacy rate
  42. 42. Electricity: Basis of Civilization • Current world population Billions of People 7 6.5 Billion people 6 5 4 • People with no access to 3 electricity: 2 1 2 Billion people 0 World Population No electricity
  43. 43. Loaves, Fishes…. And Abundance • Connect regional electricity grids into worldwide energy network • Connect renewable energy resources (hydro, solar, wind) • Phase out energy generating plants causing greatest pollution • Provide universal access to electricity and power grid • Goal: 2,000 kWh per capita/year
  44. 44. Global Energy Network Strategy • Global Energy Network Institute (GENI) • Located in San Diego • Founded 1986 • Based on work of Dr. R. Buckminster Fuller • Inventor of geodesic dome • “World Game” simulations in 1960s and 1970s
  45. 45. Global Energy Network Endorsements • Walter Cronkite • Al Gore • Boutros Boutros-Ghali • His Holiness Dalai Lama • Rev. Desmond Tutu • Vincente Fox • Dr. Jonas Salk
  46. 46. Global Energy Grid: Largely Built
  47. 47. Internet: 1972 – 1998 1972 ARPANET, 4 universities 1981 214 hosts in ARPANET 1981 IBM-PC introduced 1982 ARPANET converted to TCP/IP 1984 CERN network grows in Europe 1989 Japan JUNET connected to NSFNet 1991 Hypertext introduced by Berners-Lee 1993 Mosaic graphical web browser 1994 Netscape Navigator 1995 Yahoo and Alta Vista search engines 1998 Google founded 1972- 1998…
  48. 48. Three Projects to Watch • Tres Amigas Superstation in New Mexico • Google’s Atlantic Wind Energy Backbone • Desertec Mediterranean Project
  49. 49. Tres Amigas Superstation • In Clovis, NM • 3 Grids Intersect • Superconducting “Roundabout “
  50. 50. Tres Amigas Superstation
  51. 51. Google’s Atlantic Backbone • 350 miles long • 15 mi offshore • Connect VA – NY • 7,000 MW • 2 million HH
  52. 52. Desertec Energy Project • Solar arrays in Sahara and Saudi Arabia • Exported to Europe via HVDC Network • 6-nation Gulf region network just connected
  53. 53. Desertec Energy Project • Solar arrays in Sahara and Saudi Arabia • Exported to Europe via HVDC Network • 6-nation Gulf region network just connected • $1.2 billion project
