It has been rainy of late, and one day last week I was doing my best to deal with being stir crazy from being stuck indoors, by writing on my laptop…until the power went off.
I was irritated to say the least, as there is no wood/pellet stove here. I got my mechanical pencil and a notebook and began to express my frustration in a constructive manner.
“Why are there not wind turbines in one of THE MOST windy regions that I have ever lived in?! With wind and daylight, tell me why we are still dependent on dams and coal plants? They are not a sustainable solution. We are 16 fricken years past the stinking millennium, yet clean energy methods that have been discovered, and known to work since before I was born are only implemented in a few places in different states! Energy deregulation as a nation is the most apparent solution. So what is keeping us latched onto the teat of coal and dam generated energy? Look at your power bill.”
Thankfully the power was out less than an hour this time. Wednesday evening the power went off and it did not get restored until 4:50pm the next day. I live in a small community of 850 people that is attached to a bit larger community in northwestern Oregon. I was reminded of the horrific storm that pitched this entire area into a power outage that lasted a ridiculously long amount of time. But do you see small wind turbines or solar panels on buildings? Nope. It is like the people forgot what happened nine years ago. I am in is Clatsop County, and wow, is there ever room for improvement here.
I can certainly identify with the frustration that many people experience, and apparently have forgotten about, of the great fuel shortage of the 1970’s. Through my search for understanding how energy works, from the macrocosmic to the microcosmic, I borrowed a book called The Field, by investigative journalist Lynne McTaggart. In the first part of the documented journey to discovering the Zero Point Energy Field/aka ZPF, or as our society calls it, “the Force” Lynne identifies what prompted the search for alternative energy. Mind you, physicists had been negating the existence of a living energy field with which all life is linked, and what the humble Albert Einstein called “spooky action at a distance”.
Like everyone else, Bill Church (of Church’s Chicken chains) abhorred the inconvenience of our dependence on foreign oil, and the lack of foresight that big oil companies had in not tapping our natural resources, but he was the only person who got sick enough of the situation to take action in the effort to discover alternate energy methods. And we are just talking about alternative vehicular energy methods.
Bill Church was a key player in funding the research that enabled Hal Puthoff and his contemporaries to discover alternative energy methods. Puthoff birthed ZPF devices that have been patented and played with by the likes of Boeing and Lockheed Martin.
Church was just your average businessman, trying to make it to work at the then obscure Church’s Chicken restaurant that his family ran in Texas, when he ran out of gas. In the 1970’s gas rationing was done by a simple, yet really defeating process; people with license plates that ended in even numbers were allowed to fill up on fuel 3 days of the week, and alternately odd number plates on the other 3 days of the week. You had better hope that you had 2 vehicles with an even and an odd plate on either. Church only had one vehicle and the tank was empty, he had to wait until the next approved day for his plate number in order to be able to go to work.
I was born in 1982, so until recently I had no idea that this had ever happened until I read the 2008 printing of Lynne McTaggart’s painstakingly accurate book. I have been so impressed by her tenacity and dedication that I followed her on Instagram. But Instagram does not like certain hashtags like #thefield and many others that are not mainstream, or are anarchitypical in their opposition of our current governmental oligarchy, and consequential monopolized energy regulating entities.
You see, if I had not had a passion for seeking out knowledge to understand how energy works, all the way down to discovering that particles wink in and out of existence due to the energy exchange with the ZPF, I would never have learned about the details of the fuel shortage of the 1970’s.
I rarely watch television anymore, but I can tell you that the news media, and social media have not, and are not talking about this. Why not? As a society we are distracted by the Political Porn of the media spun presidential campaigning of our next figurehead. We are distracted by sports, gaming, TV programs, politics, religion, and even our jobs.
“We gotta make America great again!”
Here’s the truth, we are not a great country. A great country takes care of their people over desire for profit by the governing powers. We are millions of people in our own little worlds, reactionary at best to daily inconveniences. There is no great unity here. We are not a nation of united states, if we were truly a unity focused country, then the states surrounding Michigan would be using the water processing machines that the creator of 5 Hour Energy has in his think tank.
We cannot even get approval to have abandoned buildings in cities repurposed in a timely manner, during winter, to house the homeless without political processes that take time; inspection, purchasing(?) renovation, and staff to open the doors of an approved habitable facility. It would literally be quicker to purchase swamp land and build an agricultural education facility with community support in mind.
You can watch the commercial for what he is doing on youtube.com, it’s not like it is a secret. But do we have any water processing relief for Flint? No.
The only way for us to be able to chart a new course for our future as a species, is to learn from our past, embrace the solution, and the work necessary to get there.
While energy regulation may have been necessary for operations 50+ years ago, it is hampering our adaption to the needs of our environment, our home planet.
The only solution that I see is the global deregulation of energy, and the dismantling of outdated carbon emitting power plants, such as what we sold China…without the air scrubbers.
Why would any American company ever sell coal power plant mechanisms to another country, with a denser population, and not include the air filters?
You see, I have had the amazing blessing of meeting many amazing people who are volunteer drivers for Clatsop County. My son was in foster care in the Portland area and I had to rely on a ride for the 2 hour trip to Hillsboro DHS.
One gentleman shared some phenomenal information with me about his experiences with trying to get LED lights installed to replace the energy gobbling fluorescent bulbs that we have. When you start to research the details of why we have toxin emitting fluorescent light bulbs at all, you may get as upset as I did. Tons of red tape, bills passed and laws made, tie up the legal ability to actually have any other lights than fluorescent on the commercial implementation to even make such a change possible.
Oh, by the way, on your lightbulb box it says to dispose of the used lightbulb properly…which is actually to take your bulbs to the fire department. Those folks have fire science degrees.
But do you think that they send out flyers to tell you this? No. You are not told at the hardware store, or supermarket that you need to take your used bulbs to your local fire department. Talk about crazy, huh?
So…why would our government, with full documentation of the gasses that are emitted from long tubular fluorescent bulbs and the GE energy saving bulbs, have laws in place to prevent their replacement with a harmless and cheaper method of lighting?
Why would anyone use lead based pipes?!
Why would anyone divert toxic, unprocessed/unfiltered river water into a city’s water system?
The informative and passionate gentleman attempted to lead a crusade for the replacement of fluorescent lights to LED lights manufactured and installed in every major grocery chain in America. He explained his incredible frustration that LED/Light Emitting Diode lights are less expensive to manufacture, use way less energy, and do not emit toxic mercury gas like your “new energy saving light bulbs by GE”… Yes, fluorescent bulbs and your twisted glass “Energy Efficient” lightbulbs are poisonous. If you take a device that measures the particles of mercury in the air around a fluorescent lightbulb in your lamps, you would be horrified to learn that you’re poisoning yourself and your home.
But, we were told that the old lightbulbs were inefficient energy wise. Yeah. Let me give you some history on the lightbulb, one of the single most costly inventions of the 20th century. I recommend that you look up Nikola Tesla, the first man to comprehend how energy, vibration, and frequency relate. Tesla’s patented “Tesla coil” has been successfully integrated into an automotive motor, thanks to Elon Musk.
Tesla’s equations proved that there is plenty of electricity/power around us in the environment, and that his “copper coils” could give people free energy. This was his passion and his dream. When Tesla brought his papers to the Powers that could fund his inventions, he was mocked, discredited, and then had all of his work confiscated.
Thomas Edison, known as the father of the lightbulb, was tasked with creating a method to harness electricity for light…so that people could be charged for using power. If people had readily available light, they could work during the evening and thus be taxed more. The concept of the lightbulb is to create a closed circuit through connecting opposing energy polarities can be grounded. Rather than using methods of frequency manipulation to produce free light and harness the energy around us in the air, we have been slaves to the electric companies for over 100 years.
I say that we are slaves because we have passively allowed ourselves to have a portion of our hard earned income that we earn every month for our adult working lives, taken from us, for a commodity that really ought to be free…just like water purification.
So, how do we enact serious, personally impacting change?
Remember Mary Kay, Avon, even Aflac?
These companies all started with the concept of direct sales and the ability to have multi-level monetary compensation for growing their customer base.
We have since seen commercials of these companies.
Did you know that Aflac has independent affiliates?
Yep, I met one and even got to interview for an insurance sales position (before getting my insurance license years later). The office was ran by an independent sales manager, and the income is all commission.
Local marketing, outreach, follow up, and customer relationships are the responsibility of the Aflac agent. Commercials help, but you still have to get your foot in the door to local businesses, be a part of the local business association, recruit, present, and work your tail off.
What can be done, Amy?!
What if we were able to bypass the red tape through direct contact and provisioning?
I am talking about what I saw an alternative solar panel direct sales company almost succeed at doing, which is to take it to the people. There are so many different science shows that exhibit new technology, and on social media platforms. There are new solar power capture methods that utilize such techniques as seen in the film The Host. The solar energy capture method is circular, making the capture of more sunlight possible as the receiver crystals follow the path of the sun through the sky. Yes, we have people working at technical universities who have the answers, but not the funding.
Who would not want to fund a sustainable method for mass disbursement of solar capturing?
How do we fund a sustainability focused affiliate marketing company?
There are certain pillars that are needed to be able to launch a successful start-up. The most important being to COMMUNICATE!!!

While I myself am not an engineer, mathematician, electrician, or scientist, I have a HUGE imagination, a phenomenal personality based on compassion, and a freakishly awesome memory. I also have an innate ability to foster relationships. I am a great spokesperson and creative strategist. I don’t know everything, but I do know the value of insight, input, and feedback from people, and hopefully from you.
We need immediate answers as well as action, and I am not talking about selling emergency fuel-powered generators. If Off Grid: Life On The Mesa is a successful endeavor, how much more could we do with more people, technology, and cooperation?!
Imagine living without a power bill, water bill, gas bill, sewage, and a smaller grocery bill. In self-sustainable thriving eco-system, or STEV, we have designed the perfect sustainable human habitat, based on green ecology-minded technology and science. It is very exciting to be able to share more concrete information about the mission of my organization. As we pull closer to our public launch date, the phases of the start-up are very exciting.
Renegade Eco Business Services is the name of my organization. We aim to provide ecologically responsible methods of generating income while improving the quality of life of our people; both the partner and the customer.
I have been working on the website for my organization as my schedule allows. The intentions of the functions of the organization are becoming clearer, as we are able to off further assistance to our partners and members.
The rising level of awareness of humanitarian indignities has birthed new ideas for water treatment, thanks to the televised crisis of the residents of Flint, Michigan. Peru has lead mines that poison everything and the communities around them. What if we could put a self-sustainable eco-village outside of the range of lead contamination? That is just one practical use for what I am calling STEVs- Self-sustainable Thriving Eco Villages.
There has been an unmet demand for over 80 years, and there still is a demand for alternative energy methods. There is also a demand for affordable housing. And finally, there is a huge wave of people wanting to explore not only the more remote locations of our world, but what lies beyond our atmosphere, and our galaxy.
Models will be uploaded soon to my website. To contact me, please email --->
