Be humble. Resolve conflicts you have with the 'status quo', forgive. Don't be a hippy. Be a regular person. IMO it's better if you wear a black business suit, or a clean pair of ordinary jeans, than if you were a robe, of hippy clothes. All that is ego, and you want to have as little of it as possible. Ego, and anger with the status quo (the bilderburgs) is at some point going to bring forth more negativity. The more humble we are, the more chance we have of succeeding. I know some of you are going to be sick, but what the heck. Luke 18:9-14. To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood up and prayed about[a] himself: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.'"But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, 'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.'"I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." (it's history man, isn't it beautiful!:))

Technical ideas

  • Cybernated Farm Systems (see Facebook). Fully automated 'salad factory'. Costs 1 million USD and produced vegetables for 200-300 people (see businessplan) for 30 years, which is a very good return on investment apparently. Downside is that you would have to sell them if the project stops within 30 years.
  • Get into upwards spiral, as you get better in putting natural resources to use, you attract more 'makers' who want to be of the grid and experiment away.
  • Biologist: water purification ADVANCED (sewage, bacteriae) mineral extraction from seawater (bacteriae, see TedX) VERY ADVANCED
  • Engineer

Maker community

  • Iron casting.
  • Melting iron (oven opensourceecology (?)). Use 3d printing to form molds. Let locals bring old iron.
  • Water desalination. Use membrane or perhaps easier sunlight (reflecting surface, boil).
  • Energy production: reflecting light, boil, steam.
  • Construction: dirt brick (ose).
  • Try to get to a point where you can make o.s.e tools out of old iron (melting, casting), and then out of iron we mine our selves, from earth or seawater.
  • Begin with: some houses, solar panels, 3d printer, oven for melting. Eventually: produce our own houses, which would be made available for engineers or doctors (or the DIY equivalent).

Social ideas

  • Trouble makers

Never punish. Try to establish a good relationship with the person (source: Alfie Kohn).
