Investors in ‘tomorrows’ futurology.

Home for Sale on Moon signSome people invest in ‘Futures’ and some hold on to the security of a ‘Past Portfolio’ whilst others gamble on the ‘now’ and risk all for an instant.

Whilst all this is normally going on, a growing few are estimating how we can all win through to our ‘tomorrows’ by adapting our game plan ‘today’ . Today is always the best starting block and if you can look ahead without coughing on the dust of yesterday too much, you can take a fresh breath and progress.

I always try to invest my time alongside those who aim for a good future and are fresh-thinking enough to walk ever-forward. I know a lot of things jump up unexpectedly, and that sometimes these can distract or slow progress for a time, but that’s the order of things and I think there is no automatic ‘smooth ride’ for anyone or any circumstance.

The big bad bumps of ‘being’, are scattered around and they are rarely signposted to help us all avoid them. If you are fortunate, one of your friends will have some knowledge or experience that will help you surmount most bumps but rarely will you find the right friends to take you over and passed the mountains because those are there to cause you to make big personal climbs!

I think that one good investment in your own ‘tomorrows’ is to collect a wide range of friends – ones who are out there in all directions, experiencing things you cannot, because of time, position and location.

It is vital to make good investments for all tomorrows so as to nourish the long term good of all. It is against my personal law to exploit today without any regard for the long term outcome, but hey, that’s just me and not everyone enjoys thinking ahead.

But “what if” we all concentrated on only “today”?

“What if” our ‘care of attention’ was reduced to 24 hours?

Thankfully, I don’t think this will ever happen, and whilst science and spiritual adventure writers are leading us ever into deeper speculative realms of thought, I figure the future’s assured – whatever colour it is!

If you hear of a futurology conference in the UK or are interested in holding one, contact me – I’m part of it already!

Grey Water System Installation

Grey Water System InstallationOne bath or shower later and I’m sure the HoBB Garden Plants could use my dead skin cells in some way. There’s magic in re-cycling and it is not something that is green or environmental or hippy or alternative or new. The only thing that is new, and thus so green at the edges that it beggars belief, is the habit of NOT recycling.

I don’t think people are naturally wasteful. I think the idea of “waste” was designed, but who designed it and why?

Whilst Eco green earth friendly friends work to re-cycle and reduce ‘waste’, others are in the business of promoting waste who are usually clots with a lot of clout behind them. For example, at the moment, I am in control of my own dead skin cells, and bath water, but what if a government banned the use of skin cells and bath water on gardens. This would force me to find a new way to remain legal. What if the same legislature then banned baths and allowed only showers – what would happen to all the baths for they can’t all be used as plant troughs – would they go to waste?

More examples: Billions of pounds worth of food is thrown in the bin each year because of new food packaging laws (UK) that require shops to put ‘best before’ , ‘sell by’ and ‘use by’ dates on foods. We are all being brainwashed beyond our instinct to regard these dates as gospel. Packaging is designed to cause over-buying and the dates usurp our minds so that we ignore our natural instincts of smell, look and taste when assessing when to throw food away and whether to buy it in the first place. Our habits are being designed by those that profit from making us ‘waste’ and like balls, we bounce back into the system to make further purchases thus feed this web of planned obsolescence. It’s very well planned by the way and it makes big profits but if we are going to contribute to it we must be honest with ourselves – we are to blame.

Another example: In Wales, all literature printed must be produced in two languages thus, if combined into one leaflet or magazine, it will consume 100% more ink and paper regarless of whether you can read one or both languages. If you read one of the languages only then the other half is going to waste. Not every printer / publisher creates this waste problem as some are sensible enough to produce two versions seperately so that readers can opt for one or the other. We compost paper at the HoBB but it would be a better net gain of energy if less paper was produced.

Well I seem to have talked my way out of grey water system installation but I’ll return here at a later date when it is all installed and I can put a few pictures up for you.

When you can … make some waves and make things better ~~~~~~~~~ <+))))))))>< ~~~ Grant
