What we gain from the Age of Light
To some, The Age of Light may conjure up ideas of something out of a science fiction movie or novel. But, this new era is not an age where we live among a number of 10-feet tall blue aliens or 2-inch tall little green, hairy ones. It is not an age where we are beamed up from Earth to a lunar spaceship in two seconds. There are no flying cars and buses, nor a life where we eat meals of protein bar, microwavable food. There are no hand-held laser weapons, nor a space army fighting an impending Martian invasion. And there is no Galaxy Council deciding the fate of The Universe against a dark force. These ideas come from a screenwriter’s fantasy. These ideas have been put into our collective consciousness from books and TV-shows.
The Age of Light is more real and accessible.
The Age of Light is a renewed idea of World Unity.
It is a New Era where each of us is using Science and unbiased Spirituality to evolve individually and collectively.
A New Age that is real because we can feel it, know our thoughts are expanding because of it and – more importantly – see the proof of it changing our lives.
One of the most urgent needs now is to reduce global waste. Waste does not only exist in physical form (plastic, batteries, money and cellular phones) – but also in intellectual form (scientific thought, hate, fear and Time). What we gain in this new era is economy and productivity. We consolidate our efforts and point them in directions that are multi-beneficial. There is one area of waste that we can already see immediate benefits if it could be redirected – That is changing our quest for establishing human colonization on Mars to an improvement of human life here on Earth.
This one redirection would have enormous effects on all human life. NASA receives 22 Billion dollars a year. Much of that goes into research into exploring the possibility for human life on Mars or another distant Earth-like planet, 50 light-years away. By the way, one light year is about 6 TRILLION miles (that’s more than 9 TRILLION kilometers). Mars has the most potential because it is our closest possibility. However, we would need 3 years to get there, 3 years to wait there until the orbits of Earth and it are at their closest point and 3 years to get back to Earth. Most of that time astronauts would be floating, hoping that gravity would pull our spaceship into its orbit. So, if we already spend 22 Billion dollars a year on research…. How much would it cost if they start building colonies? 22 TRILLION dollars a year? So many other logistical problems arise with our Martian Sci-Fi Quest – Food, sanitation, mental health, sunlight reduction, radiation, inhumanly extreme cold, fuel, air and water. All of which have to be resolved with backup plans before any human colony is even feasible.
22 Billion dollars a year is a lot of money. How many people could that feed? How many new scientists could that educate? How much debt could that relieve? I am not against exploring the possibility of life on another planet. Mars will always be there. But, Mars can wait. Here on Earth, we have a polar ice cap that is melting. We are wasting time and scientific thought that is directed to Mars. We need new, achievable, scientific thought from the thousands of scientists working on Space Exploration Programs. Ideas that can help push back the slowly mounting tidal wave of pollution here on our planet.
The Age of Light would not be of benefit to anyone without gaining a cleaner and healthier planet. Within 12 hours after a smoker stops smoking, carbon monoxide in their blood drops to normal. Within 2 weeks their lungs improve. Within a month shortness of breath (air) improves. The health of that patient dramatically and quickly improves. Pollution to The Earth is like cigarettes to a smoker. New scientific ideas can help us quit.
We will gain fresher air, cleaner water, better food and healthier lives for us all. Finding ways to get rid of our plastics and organic substances can help recede the steadily growing tidal wave of pollution. Looking at our Solar System, we see that the hottest point in it is our Sun. But, what is the second hottest point? Mercury? No. Not even with its proximity to the Sun. Venus? No. Not even with its gases. So, where is it? Actually, the second hottest points in our Solar System are right here on Earth – Our volcanoes. Volcano temperatures are hotter than Venus or Mercury. They are hot enough to disintegrate plastics, dyes, tires and cellular phones on contact and organic substances in seconds. New scientific ideas can help us find ways to use them, or even to use Venus as an Earth incinerator. The problems or logistics would be much easier to resolve than building human settlements on Mars.
