2015: 5 Technologies Primed to Revolutionize Our Planet

Our beautiful planet, Earth. A World in Turmoil and… Transition Our world is no stranger to change, but what we’re about to experience in the near-future may look quite a bit different from today. Currently, there is propaganda running around the clock to alter the public’s perception on what is true and what isn’t. A proper example: there is actually enough food produced to give 4.3 pounds to every single human being – daily. It goes far deeper than that, but I will remain fixated on the old, aging paradigm mentality we now find ourselves dominated by. One where the average person believes wholeheartedly that we will never achieve world peace or harmony. They would also probably agree, that any attempt to end world-poverty, pollution, disease or the millions of other issues we’re facing, are fool-hearty at best. If you fall into this category, make it easy on yourself […] Read More

2014: Solar Roadways: The Mind Boggling Possibilities Of Solar Roadways Are Exciting

This is certainly something that you wouldn’t think of right away, nor would it seem like a viable option. But Scott Brusaw and his team are committed to their project and as it gains more steam, the possibility of it becomes more and more real. Roads That Produce Power Solar Roadways are exactly how it sounds, roadways that are made of photovoltaic solar panels. Essentially, the vision promises to cover asphalt roadways across North America with these specially made solar panels so that roadways are not only suitable for driving but can also provide a great deal of electricity generation. Scott Bursaw, the inventor of Solar Roadways, began putting his idea into motion when The US Department of Transportation released a solicitation for an intelligent pavement that could generate power. After applying and receiving funding for his project, Solar Roadways became a reality and a prototype was built. Scott […] Read More

2013: A World Without The Internet: What Would It Be Like? How Different Would Your Life Be?

Internet, after all, is not without enemies… The Internet has become the Archimedean point in our daily life. Almost nothing gets done without it nowadays. The more we rely on it, the more it seems impossible to live without it. It is undoubtedly the most reliable machine Man has ever made. However, could this blind dependence of ours in itself be a threat to mankind? Are we investing too much in this new medium that we are risking to lose too much if we ever were to live without it? Why is the Internet so successful? How does it invade all aspects of life? The Internet, as a matter of fact, is the only manmade machine that has an organic structure. The way everything is wired up is unbelievably complex. Seeing that it has this organic structure, it seems to fit the properties of vitalism perfectly, and all aspects of human […] Read More
