the potential of our symbols so all human beings can enjoy vitality and

and embrace with each breath of our atmosphere the following:
is the potential of the universe(s) and is so bountiful it can be
considered a constant.
any moment only a trace, trace, trace aspect of the potential is
realised and manifest.
constantly transforms and comes in myriad, myriad continually changing
forms, all of which exist for trace moments – including we human

electromagnetic, gravitational and other.
is not any form or group of forms though all forms are of the
potential, which is energy.
cannot be created, generated, saved, conserved, destroyed, consumed,
wasted or lost for energy is by its very nature conserved.
are no energy crises, though we can experience crises in our use of
wise use of energy (“energy efficiency”) is not about using less
or more energy but rather about using energy so our lives remain in
harmony with the balances and flows that sustain humanity.

does not exist though various electrical phenomena of very different
properties do. Each has a symbol for you to use e.g. electric charges, electrical energy, electrons,
electric currents, imbalances of charge, electric fields, voltage,
electrostatic, electric power, electromagnetism etc.
is a vital and common flowing element of the universe(s) and provides
the chemical basis of all living forms.
all elements of the universal potential, carbon is continually
changing the forms it is manifest in.
our role as a steward amidst the carbon flux and know we can never
“offset”, “neutralize”, “devalue” and “trade” away our
use of the carbon potential. Beware of those who say otherwise for
they are in deep denial of change/stewardship.
psychopathic constructs such as “The Market” can only put a price
on carbon forms; only each human being can put a value on carbon
taxes as a gift for enabling civilisation and know the ultimate tax is
the one we each employ when we value and make use of any resource,
which includes all carbon forms.
we are each Thermal Beings and part of the continual, great universal
mindful in every breath we give that we are warming as we are cooling,
just as our planet is constantly warming and cooling with the day and
warming and cooling with all your being, for in the balance of each
thermal exchange all things can exist.
the potential of the “warming” symbol and do not confuse it with
“warming up”, for “warming up” is a change in the balances
that sustain life and to say “warming = warming up” is the
ultimate denial of the thermodynamics of the universe(s). Likewise
take care not to confuse the “cooling” and “cooling down”
reverence for the “atmosphere” symbol and associate it with
organic and dynamic systems in which the great powers of air for
convection moderate the thermal balances of this planet.
of those who symbolize the atmosphere as a “greenhouse”,
“blanket” and other human engineered object for they deny the
essential change, which is our atmosphere.
the “greenhouse” symbol so we can better create structures that
make wise use of air as a thermal insulator by exploiting its great
capacity to convect and small capacity to conduct thermal
and conserve the balances of the gases that enable humans to exist
and, in particular, teach of the Warmer Trace Gases (water vapour,
carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane etc), for these exist only as
trace gases on this planet and yet their power is such that they work
to keep Earth’s surface warmed to a comfortable life- enabling 15°C.
of those who describe the Warmer Trace Gases as “greenhouse” gases
for they evoke images that deny change/stewardship of the atmospheric
balances that sustain us.
we are not here to “fight”, “combat” and “stop” the
change, which is our climate, but rather to live in harmony with
climate change and do not confuse it with a human-inducted thermal
build-up in the atmosphere.
to lift thine eyes upwards from searching the ground underfoot for
minerals to the plants around us and to the sun above and find symbols
for all their great potential. Without those symbols their potential
cannot be manifest.
in the knowledge this planet did not begin with humans and most
probably will not end with humans and it is not in need of
“saving” – it is our ingenious capacity for denial of
stewardship/change that puts us at greatest risk and wipes out
a true conservative, knowing this is the title most truly accorded to
the person who conserves the flows and balances of resources that
of those who say science is a way of thinking and be mindful that it
is a state of being born of compassion that enables the arts,
language, civics and all that is civilisation.
that you and all human beings are born in the state of science and
those that call themselves “scientists” deny this state of being.
know the state of science in us is revealed in our total lifestyle,
not just in our knowledge of a subject.
mindful that the greatest teachers – Jesus, the Buddha, Socrates,
Blake, Confucius et al – needed no plane or car and yet travelled
compassion, search for the truth, reflect deeply and share knowledge
freely for without compassion, experimentation, reflection and sharing
science ceased to exist.
mindful we are Mirror Beings, exquisitely designed to detect and
reflect the harmony (acceptance) and dissonance (denial) in others and
thus we are each symbols, which is our lifestyles. We are inextricably
Experience all this
and you can enjoy greater harmony with the universe(s). Use symbols thus
and according to the Sustainability Principle of Energy you can transcend
our great and ingenious capacity for denial of stewardship/change. Magic
Every breath is a
celebration and walking a joy.
A cottage becomes
more luxurious than any mansion ever could be.
A nearby plot of
soil and even a plant pot becomes a treasure.
The desire and need
to own and use cars evaporates.
The use of jet
travel becomes an anathema to the free spirit, an impossible notion.
The freed mind
travels to places no car or jet can take a person.
The misery mongers,
who are the merchant bankers and their media, lose their power over you.
Waiting for and
using derelict mass transport becomes an opportunity for rewarding
reflection and rich conversation.
Even as others
reject, dismiss and abuse you as a crank one finds greater joy and humour
in being amidst the variety and activity, which is humanity.
The desire to beget
children fades as the children of the world become as one.
True friends are
revealed and the love shared has richness beyond anything money can buy.
And miracle of
miracles you may well find that without any sense of deprivation your
emissions of carbon dioxide are less than 3 tonnes per year while your
rate of destruction of our fossil fuel resource drops several fold. And
thus you are at one with the billions of other humans who conserve our
balances and you live in the knowledge our children may well be thankful
for your existence.
