Unarguable Phenomena

The sun is a reliable "unarguable" phenomenon. It cannot be bought or sold or corrupted. It shines on worms, bugs, white people, black people, plants, germans and jews. It does not discriminate. Without an understanding of its power it is relentless and ruthless but if it is understood it can be a large part of our sustenance. It will kill you if you lay on the beach with no cover for several days. It will save you if you direct its rays into a shelter made of mass. It is up to the one who encounters the sun to understand how to encounter its unarguable power and benefit, not die, from it. This is the way of all earth phenomena. We understand... we whisper to them and we find sustenance free for the taking for all people. This is the knowledge of unarguable phenomena we need all people to have. So that all people have everything for free all the time. They do not have to buy the sun. They encounter it. No longer is economy between us and sustenance.


In this scenario, all people are equal in their ability to encounter natural earth phenomena. This is taught and learned. No one can ever take this from you. The economy crashes, you still have the ability to encounter the unarguable phenomena for sustenance. They are always there.They do not make promises they can't keep. They are transparent. They are true. You are the only variable factor of your own sustenance. All you need is the vessel to float and encounter in this world of sustenance for everyone. The Earthship is that vessel... earthship.com.

The using of less results in the needing of less
Life becomes easier, the burden turns to buoyancy

We think of our energy demands and needs of the future and we wonder... "how we will provide them"? This need, this demand - like an addiction to cocaine - perverts us into thinking we must have nuclear power. This is selling out our planet, our future and even our present ability to exist in a healthy life.
Only extreme sources of power are considered today in a world of extreme needs. What if we cut our needs in half? What if we cut our needs by 75%. This would suddenly make very subtle forms of energy look attractive.

We are crossing a bridge. We weigh four hundred pounds and the bridge is only good for one hundred and seventy pounds. What is the answer? Risk death by trying to cross the bridge with obviously too much weight? Or loose weight?
The point is that when we need radically less energy or food or whatever, lesser forms of energy and food will begin to look interesting. We won't be jumping to the conclusion that we need massive forms of dangerous energy, like nuclear power. We won't be able to be convinced by those who play on our own addictions and excessive needs. A small wild strawberry in the forest is thrilling to a creature with a small stomach. To a giant creature with a huge stomach, it is hardly observed at all. This makes me want to reduce the size of my stomach.

I have heard the phrase, "who will feed China in the future?” With less needs in addition to encounters of unarguable phenomena, each individual in China will feed themselves.
