The Energy Freedom Paradox

By Diadon Acs

Ubuntu?

An anthropologist studying the habits and customs of an African tribe found himself surrounded by children most days. So he decided to play a little game with them. He managed to get candy from the nearest town and put it all in a decorated basket at the foot of a tree.

Then he called the children and suggested they play the game he made. When the anthropologist said “go”, the children had to run to the tree and the first one to get there could have all the candy to him/herself.

So the children all lined up waiting for the signal. When the anthropologist said “go”, all of the children took each other by the hand and ran together towards the tree. They all arrived at the same time, divided up the candy, sat down and began to happily munch away.

The anthropologist went over to them and asked why they had all run together when any one of them could have had the candy all to themselves.

The children responded: “Ubuntu. How could any of us be happy if all the others were sad?”

Ubuntu is a philosophy of some African tribes that can be summed up as “I am what I am because of who we all are.

In 2008, Bishop Desmond Tutu gave this explanation of “ubuntu” . . . “One of the sayings in our country is “Ubuntu”, the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our inter-connection. You can’t be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality – Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole world. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.”

From inception as human beings, two fields of energies came together to create a third. One feminine, one masculine, and the third a new being. In this union of two fields, a new dynamic system was born which sheds light onto the heart of this writing. This is not some trivial metaphysical statement with vague implications of existence. It is the foundation from which every one of us frames our understanding of reality. The boundary layer where we find novelty in the noise and manifest in the matrix of perceived chaos.

We are filled with potential to coalesce with a multitude of other fields or systems throughout our lifetimes. How large can this union of a human being’s influence grow and what are its limitations? This is one of several aspects this essay will attempt to lay out to the reader through physical analogies and an interesting paradox. The best kind of paradox, one with a solution that the reader can process on the structure of our systems in society.

The Technical Summary of the EFP: 

Note: For those readers not technically minded and feel they are getting lost in the jargon, please press on. The examples towards the end of the essay will help explain the concept of the EFP easily. 

The energy freedom paradox is a philosophic, physics, and psychological thesis that states: Energy can only be perceived as free according to the total relativistic capacity of the said system(s) involved. System(s) being relativistic implies that no system can be closed absolutely, only isolated, with certain probabilities of field interactions to other fields in emergent complexity.

 Depending on proximity and harmonic dimensional dynamics in space. Physics examples can be found in the  (Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics), which illustrates how open systems of reality can become complex and dynamic to which careful engineering should be considered.

The energy freedom paradox can be defined by how our relative human anthropological system directly influences all other relative energetic systems, determining how many degrees of freedom are allowed for these perceived systems to exchange information.

These probabilistic interactions can have a greater or lesser order of field influence depending on a system(s) relative field capacity (energy density), velocity of exchange between fields (potential), and the resistance the fields have to one another. Variance in these properties give rise to frequencies of harmonic complexity in their interactions. This might best be represented as holomorphic dynamics like patterns that tend to have infinite complexity derived in particular harmonic points in 2D space. Which subsequently gives rise to structural order in the 3D space of the observer.

The paradox lies in the relative field’s probability of isolation from greater or lesser relative field capacity (mass-energy density in orders of magnitude) and the potential difference between these fields (spin/pressure, energy density, impedance/resistance). It becomes a philosophical science paradox due to humans having a relative field capacity in socioeconomic and cultural design that is a first-order function of all relative field interactions. (This hypothesis seems evident in the examples of the Boltzmann’s Brain Paradox, Maxwell’s Demon, Heisenberg’s Principle, Anthropic Principle, and Plato’s Allegory of the Cave) In that the observer and the environment cannot be separated from each other. 

To summarize, it is probable that energy can only be “free” relative to how isolated a system is to other relative systems/fields, according to their impedance/resistance, energy density/magnitude, and velocity/pressure. Which can be represented in capacity, velocity, resistance, and power/work/transformation between two or more relative systems/fields. These field interactions are what give rise to dynamic frequencies and vibrations of emerging complexities. The magnificent music of entropy which expresses its works of creation across the cosmos. 

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

-Albert Einstein

Preface: In an attempt to make this essay as enjoyable to the reader as possible, it is the author’s intention to try to give examples of systems that can be easily comprehended on different scales. All of which are observed physical systems in nature and our physical interpretations of them. This essay will attempt to lay out the concept of the EFP (Energy Freedom Paradox) in simple terms so that anyone can understand it. It is also the authors hope that in doing so, a reader can stay more engaged on the ontology of what may be a very holistic science thesis. 

For context, the usage of the words fields and systems will be used interchangeably to represent complex dynamics in plain English or whatever language this gets translated to. If somebody reading this would enjoy translating this to mathematics, hopefully the axioms of the aforementioned linked equations will be your guide. The words energy and information will also be used interchangeably in accordance with the information theory postulate. In simple terms this means that energy=information.

This could be a treacherous attempt to bridge spirituality with science, but that is a risk the author is willing to take. If you would be so kind as to take this written ride with me? 

On this journey, your objectivity is encouraged in order to find your own conclusion on the matter. This is not to be taken as religious doctrine or some Kool-aid the author is offering. Nor should it invoke a political response that reduces these writings down to an “ism” of any sort. 

Unless of course that “ism” is humanism which hopefully you can relate too. 

This is an attempt to lay out a foundation of some issues we may not be recognizing in a kind of 3 body problem in physics, philosophy, and psychology in order to come up with reasonable solutions for an abundant future all our children can enjoy. Perhaps it will be in vain or written out of place in the current time for humanity. Again, the author is willing to take that risk in order to plant a seed of reason, which you (the reader) can water and feed, or treat as a weed. 

Now that all that dry and technical stuff and other formalities are out of the way, we can move onto examples in our everyday reality. We will move from greater order of magnitude of system interactions to smaller. Not that one is more important than the other, but to help demonstrate how truly magnificent the complexity of our reality is in its many degrees of freedom.

Examples in our perceived reality

1.) The Sun and local solar system.

           The sun has a system output of energy at a mass-energy conversion rate of 4.26 million metric tons per second, which produces the equivalent of 384.6 septillion watts or about 3.86 x 1026 watts of energy. Most of that energy goes off into space, but about 1.74 x 1017 watts strike the earth. (ie: 174,000,000,000,000,000, or 174 quadrillion watts). According to NASA’s data, approximately 48% of the solar energy that radiates in Earth’s direction is absorbed into the earth’s layers.  

There are many varying wavelengths of electromagnetic energy which hit the Earth that are converted, diffracted, reflected, or completely ignore our Earthen system. Reflections and the ghost-like emissions of this electromagnetic solar energy would be the other 52% that is not transformed by the Earth into new dynamic sub-fields of energy. This is because a variety of the solar radiation interacts with Earth’s fields/systems differently depending on its power density (magnitude of energy emission), velocity vectors (speed of particles and their direction of travel), and vibrational frequencies (wavelengths through a medium of information exchange). 

This represents the carrying capacity of the earth in its relative field interaction with the Sun. The earth has a dynamic set of subsequent fields in varying frequencies/vibration, energy density/capacity, and velocity/pressure. 

To formalize this in an electrical system, one could consider an LCR circuit. Inductance, Capacitance, and Resistance in varying values which can be expressed in spatial fields is the practical visualization we can use. The subsequent field interactions contribute to the total entropy of the system, as the isolation of all fields is never equal to 0, only fluctuating dynamics with LCR values. Another way to state it is that the complexity of entropy is multiplied or divided in frequency upon system interactions, giving rise through this complexity to new subsystems that have novel harmonics.

Though some of these subsequent systems are isolated from the sun in various ways like underground caverns or deep oceans, they still are influenced by the sun’s radiant energy in minuscule ways, whether it is Extremely Low Frequencies or Extremely High Frequencies of emissions, these emittance of the the sun are ever present in its local field.

 There are also probabilities for cosmic phenomena in the larger system which affect the sun, and thus will affect all subsequent fields coupled to the sun’s local field of influence. This is as far as I will zoom out so to speak in this paper. Getting into the scales of super densities like black holes and dark energy has the risk of losing the plot. So let’s keep the zoomed out picture limited to our local solar neighborhood. 

Something like the construction of a dyson sphere, a hypothetical sun shell which converts solar radiation into usable energy, will likely not be a viable answer for our power conversion without adverse consequences. Even if our understanding of physics is complete, which is incredibly unlikely, and our cooperation to create such a structure in space becomes possible. 

There would still be engineering criteria that would likely affect the ability to amass such a structure like, the amount of material needed in the solar system, the ability to design meta materials to withstand such extreme conditions, and the notion that absorbing the solar energy of our local star wouldn’t choke it of connections to the local system with unintended consequences.  The author is using the example of the dyson sphere because it helps shine a light (pun intended) on how isolating many of us from our environment can be detrimental to the greater order systems harmony. 

Whether it be a supernova, gamma burst, coronal mass ejection from our local star (the sun), an asteroid colliding with the Earth, or a magnetic polar shift, our beautiful planets systems are not isolated from other systems absolutely, and therefore cannot be considered closed. That is unless a human is to perceive it as closed relative to its own system, which from the author’s point of view is a perversion of physical reality. Perhaps the reader perceives it differently?

This perversion is in order to maintain comfort in one’s own mental system that identifies with itself as central and isolated (egoism). Certainly this being should be considered a system which is radiated with environmental energies as well as radiating to its environment in expressing work or power. Though it is relevant to complex system dynamics and the EFP, I will leave the exploration of the human psyche to the reader to reflect upon.

2.) Ecological Systems and Caloric Energy  

Food supply and production is quite a complicated system in today’s modern age. There was a time when it was far more localized for the general population, but in today’s global economic cooperation there has become a new standard of caloric energy to be intermingled with other energy systems. This added socio-economic design increases the scope by means of transportation, production, logistics, and environmental interaction. 

For the convenience of simplification in this paper, an isolated example of biological systems could be given in the case of a wolf pack. This hypothetical isolated system has a potential energy determined by the demand of the pack, the area of land, the supply of prey, and the impedance of the environment like weather or other predators.

As the wolf pack has less impedance from other predators and good climate conditions, their populations will increase to the limit of energy food supply they have in their “isolated” system. The system parameters are based on the velocity of growth and movement the species exhibits on the environment. Unlike wolves, humans have the ability to adapt much easier to their surroundings with our ability to engineer technology. The ability to influence matter and energy in ways which we can share with one through another language and writings.  

The Domestication of animals, agriculture, and the ability to convert dense energy systems like hydrocarbons into kinetic, thermal, and  electromotive force have allowed us the ability to free up even more time. To create complexities of information, that perhaps, has never been seen on Earth before? It does seem like we are quite extraordinary for a lifeform in this vast universe. 

This adaptation to become masters of matter manipulation allows us to specialize the awareness of dynamic system complexities. These technological adaptations can either harmonize with the natural environment, an-harmonize, or disharmonize resulting in ecological dissonance. 

A good biological analogy in nature would be in the example of symbiotic and/or parasitic species which interact with their host systems.  These two types of generalized species are equipped with biological technologies. Technologies that have longevity through the systems resonance to maximize entropic efficiency in many system layers. 

Contradictory to a resonant efficiency to many system layers, there are technological adaptations that are met with points of impedance which isolate system interactions to a minimum number of field layers. Like the difference of a bell rang in the air of a moist summer day, or under freezing water in the arctic. The sound will travel differently depending on the system’s variables and bell design. So too are the limitations created in specialized parasitic life. Depending on the host’s systems specific parameters brings limits to field expansion.

All of these aspects of this biological energy system are isolated for convenience, but you will notice the last two requirements in the statement refer to environmental conditions and other biological systems.  This is where the paradox should become clear, in that no system is fully isolated, and must interact with other systems in some degree of probabilistic freedom. 

It was one of Darwin’s observations in his theory of evolution, that the survival of a species depends on its ability to adapt to change. In particular, the change in energy states between biological systems and their encompassing environmental systems.

3.) Human Socio-Economic Systems 

(First Principle of EFP)

The 3rd and final example was alluded to in the former 2nd example. This system is the base layer of operation for us, the human organism. This means it will encompass a large majority of this paper. So the author has made a choice to break it down further to be more cognitively digestible for the reader.

Educational systems:

The industrial revolution brought about a lot of incredible changes for humanity. One of those was the standardization of education for the less material fortunate class of people. This was called free education and was modeled on the Prussian education system. The trade off in this freedom was that though education was available for all, it was usually formalized by the ruling power class of socio economic elites. Many of whom were gifted in the ways of financial systems and social communication, but perhaps they were unaware of the ontological connections of informational systems. Again, an example of the EFP showing us its smirk on the inner workings of human social systems. The irony of these particular education systems is that axioms are taught like, “nothing is for free” and “entropy is chaos that leads to an absolute of nothingness”. When in fact nobody has to pay for the sun and its cosmic energy density in just thermal energy alone is unfathomable for most people to comprehend,  and speculative at best for current understanding of astrophysics. 

These teachings of complete hierarchical isolation between formal science and social science, incentivizes the value of a disharmonious structure of our institutions. By making an assumption that our social sciences do not interact with our formal sciences like reading, writing and arithmetic. Yet, isn’t this language that is the very foundation of the formal sciences, also the only way to communicate information in the social sciences? The concept that they are separate from one another is quite a paradox in the information network of us human beings.. but what would one call this paradox? 😉

  In early childhood education, the exploration of the most challenging  of life’s big questions have been found to be incredibly important. These questions seem simple at face value, but their importance can’t be understated and should be revisited all throughout a person’s life. The questions, as you might suspect, are ones like who am I, why are we here, what is all this life for, where do we go when we die, and how will I live? These are important, not only for the psychological health and well being of the individual child, but also for the well being of the society the child is a part of. Allowing kids to explore their psyche, the physics of the world, and play with their philosophical habits through actions has an incredible amount of power behind it. This power might just be the essence of this paper in an attempt at formalizing a paradox with implications of design features of our species well -being. 

The Greeks, one of the anthropological success stories and founders of western civilization, have documented accounts that perhaps predate them. Why not consider some of these prehistoric fundamental concepts of education to formulate the correct ingredients in institutionalized education?  Psychological, philosophical, and physical education were considered the roots of the social science tree. Their purpose of documentation was likely solidified by their benefit for individuals to understand the interconnectedness of the many systems in motion. The concepts of apprenticeship, asking big questions, exploring logic and reasoning through play were found very successful in developing a person into a healthy member of society. 

General education does help bring awareness to what is possible in the universe through the sciences. There is a careful balance that should be played as not every biological system, we call a child, is alike. They are not isolated systems from the monetary network and have inherited conditional circumstances. Oftentimes, the concept of financial incentivization in this system is a counter value to those who resonate to different philosophies in their psyche. Some people have values less similar to the financial systems that drive the engine of human prosperity, but should this deter them from their life’s meaning and value to society? 

In early childhood education, the exploration of the most challenging of life’s big questions have been found to be incredibly important for healthy social development. These questions seem simple at face value, but their importance can’t be understated and should be revisited all throughout a person’s life. The questions as you might suspect are ones like who am I, why are we here, what is all this life for, where do I go when I die, and how will I live? These are crucial teachings not only for the psychological health and well being of the individual child, but also for the well being of the society the child is a part of. Allowing kids to explore their psyche, the physics of the world, and play with the different philosophies in action has an incredible amount of power behind it to progress the well being of all involved. 

Identification of personality traits from these types of interactive retrospection with guided questions can help early childhood educators assess a child’s cognitive propensities.  Early guiding interactions can make a difference in how a human develops to forge their gifts they have to offer the world. Something which the authors believe we all have. If these are such incredibly important values for social well being, what are the system parameters that prevent progression towards maximizing the degrees of freedom in educational energy?

We can look at it again from the LCR framework we did with the sun model. Only this particular system has a unit of account L, store of value C, and a medium of exchange R. It is our financial system and is the socioeconomic framework which allows us to collectively create value to enhance our quality of life. Our system dynamics in ecological terms are principled on this system. When this value is perceived only in a material sense, the system becomes limited to that principled value set. Depending on how this analogous LCR is engineered, parasitic losses can pervert the natural harmonics of optimal resonant operation. In a sense, the system becomes inefficient at certain novel operations, but may excel in others. So if the system is to be engineered for maximizing prosperity, longevity, and general well being of human beings, it must be engineered properly for that particular function. If the design has been set to maximize this for a small group, it can become self annihilating overtime like an LCR circuit that gets overheated as power increases beyond its intended design parameters. 

This is in the author’s view where this paradox becomes incredibly important to consider, as its implications might very well determine how large we can grow as a species. 

Applied Physical energy systems:

Energy in its various forms is the very foundation for civilization to thrive. The direct correlation to energy and quality of life is very apparent. In case you don’t believe me, here are some data points to examine. 

It has been found that energy “consumption” has a direct correlation to economic development and general well being of a population. The narrative that energy is consumed rather than transformed may be a slight interpretation of how energy dynamics operate. The use of chemical energy densities such as hydrocarbons are burned to create pressures, which turn turbines in order to transform it into electrical power. This power then has the ability to be applied across multiple systems in a useful way to whichever ways humans see fit according to our systems social values. The data on this is very clear and is hard to argue against.

From our population density, production, and our standard of living to stabilize basic human necessities, the discovery and implementation of electrical systems has greatly increased our general well being. Hopefully it has become evident to the reader by now that there is no separating physical power systems from social biological systems. If it still isn’t clear don’t fret, this last example should elaborate further on the paradoxical nature in our perception of isolated systems.

In 1973 during the OPEC Oil Embargo, then President Richard Nixon made an Energy policy he calledProject Independence. This was potentially a turning point for energy in the United States by creating new Nuclear Fission Power plants.  There was exciting new technology in MSBR (Molten Salt Breeder Reactors) that was far more safe than LMFBR (Liquid Metal Fuel Breeder Reactors). However, the EFP (Energy Freedom Paradox) was not identified and this project was scrapped for more monetary reasons I will elaborate on.

Nuclear Power plants are very expensive to build and their energy production is so cheap, that an investor would have to wait ~40+ years before they would reach a return on investment break even. On top of that, the LMFBR were chosen for financial reasons as they could help supply the Military Industrial Complex with enriched uranium for weapons. Those financial reasons elaborate the problem of the EFP in that the value of the monetary system was the first principle rather than the value of electrical energy abundance.

Economic Energy Systems:

Another aspect of economic isolation in a complex system is found in creative and mental contributions to our social systems. This is represented by the process of patents and intellectual property. While these legal mechanisms allow social contracts which helps in protecting the creators financial security, it can also create an impedance to information freedom as the financial system creates isolation to other social systems with value not measurable in material form. When we examine innovative technologies that people create as energy from the perspective of information theory, we can see how this too is perhaps the most insightful part of the EFP. 

If the intellectual information is applied as work in the socioeconomic system, it can open up even further avenues of abundance and degrees of energy freedom depending on the technology, if the originator so chooses. Perhaps the reader can see how the EFP applies here as well. If that’s not the case then I will give some further examples of how intellectual property and patents can create resistance that may impede technological innovations progress.  

The first example of this being Oil companies actively purchasing patents which jeopardize their field of influence. Securing an economic monopoly by employing maximum resistance to another field of energy. To put it into simple terms, using financial means to buy up patents in order to not advance other technologies that can help power automobiles in particular. If you are interested in this rabbit hole, a simple Google search on “did oil companies buy up patents” will give you hours of research. Or perhaps research an interesting man that relates to the oil industry named Rudolf Diesel. 

Another disadvantage of intellectual property is when a creator is never satisfied with the price to bring a technology to market. Or if they are unable to make a profit as the cost of making a product doesn’t have a good financial return, but may provide another degree of energetic value that is not represented by money. Values such as health, security, and well being to a social system.  The use of intellectual property can also have the unfortunate consequence of un-manifested finality upon the creator’s death if their idea was something of a closely guarded secret. 

Engineered obsolescence and poorly designed manufacturing workflows can help a company’s bottom line in dollar terms. This can be at the cost of aspects of system dynamics such as longevity, recyclability, and disharmonious environmental origin or its byproducts.  One can examine many industrial organizations where a plastic like PVC (Polyvinyl-Chloride) is used. The plastic is cheap to produce with a 600 year lifespan, so in cheap manufacturing terms, it is useful. However, this comes at a cost of value that can’t as easily be represented by a financial dimensional view point alone. Due to the chloride in the polyvinyl-chloride, it becomes very costly to recycle. It cannot be incinerated due to the release of hydrochloric acid and other filler byproducts which have toxic effects on natural environments.

 A manufacturer ends up having to pay to recycle the plastics or other industrial “waste” byproducts, and it isn’t cost effective in financial terms to do so. So instead, many manufacturing and recycling plants just bury it in the ground. There are other plastics that have the same mechanical properties of PVC for longevity, but they are seldom used due to their affordability in upfront cost. 

While some regulatory bodies in governments try to prevent examples like this from happening, it can become a parasitic inefficiency in the monetary system from the manufacturer to the citizens of a sovereign nation state. This may seem like a political statement as governance is involved, but if we apply the EFP, one may be able to see it as a systems engineering problem, where the value isn’t approached one dimensionally. Could this potentially be a limitation to our growth and prosperity as a species?

Biological systems:

The food and drug industry is another intersection of financial, health, and environmental systems. A wise man once said, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. This man was Benjamin Franklin, one of the founders of the United States. It is not always in the best interest financially for a drug company to cure something completely or suggest preventive measures through educational programs. What financial profits would there be to gain in that endeavor?  

Perhaps we should focus more attention on maintaining a reasonable quality of life with applied scientific methods?

 It should be clear and not overstated that these are complex systems, and many drugs have useful functions in alleviating health problems. Usually they serve as fixing a symptom and not the underlying cause of illness. However, there are many powerful medicines isolated from nature which should not be discredited. I do not want to paint a polarized picture of black and white. In complex systems which overlap and interact, there are numerous shades of gray.

 As the notable wise man Hippocrates, the father of medicine once said, “food is the best medicine. Have you ever considered how interesting it is that the social value of healthy foods and its education does not outweigh the financial value of processed designer foods? A food industry which engineers consumer products for maximum neurochemical addiction, shelf life, and byproducts of other industries waste materials to lower margins

It’s not the author’s aim in these statements to destroy the institutions and organizations that drive efficiency.  It may not be wise to destroy the house in which we  reside? “Capitalism” is one of the many ‘isms’ which is inescapable in human social dynamics. It’s important to also note, that while it hasn’t had much success in centralized globalized systems, “communism” is also one of those “isms” inescapable to local communities. It’s in the author’s opinion that if we are to use a word, it’s important to investigate its origin in order to find its most simplified definition. This should very much apply to before mentioned “isms” as being part of our social sciences in order to formulate a valid argument for when and why they should be used.

 Final thoughts

It is in the author’s view that energy should be regarded as information transforming from one system to another doing work at the boundary layers. The creation of something dynamic in the process is the outcome, but great care would be taken in how we engineer what is in our field of information. It is up to the reader to decide if this energetic information should be free or not, and to what degree.

 Perhaps this is an aspect of western civilization that stiffens the ability for us to find some semblance of harmony in our socioeconomics.  Even if you don’t subscribe to information theory, I hope my attempt to highlight examples of why patent rights, self-interest in monetary profits, and proprietary monopolization of ideas have unfortunate consequences. Many energetic values for society cannot be measured in financial profits alone.

This particular form of financial greed seems to occur in groups of people who may not be aware of the EFP? It could be that they have been influenced subconsciously by environmental conditions to regard the value of their power higher than others. An interesting Italian proverb that may shed light on this Machiavellian concept of social hierarchy is, “At the end of the game, the King and the Pawn go back in the same box.”  The concept of money should be thoroughly examined for human longevity. 

In fact, a primary reason for writing this essay is to help educate individuals who may not see how their environmental conditional bias, while it may seem beneficial in the short term, has dire consequences in the long term arc of humanity. After all, we can’t take any of this material with us when we die, can we?

A few elite individuals who are masterful at the financial analytical game, like some Maxwellian Demon, can exploit entropy in a self preserving manner. Their ability to use instruments of debt based economics as a controller mechanism for a perceived isolated system, can allow them enthalpic storage of human information in a closed loop system. These women and men are incredible people who have the ability to make effective multidimensional systems. The importance not to vilify these individuals, but instead praise them for their strengths. It could be in humanity’s best interest that a decentralization of thought can make us far less likely to be limited like wolves, but instead abundant like dogs. Having synergistic organisms like the ones reflected back at us in the mirror.  

We all make mistakes and the sooner we accept them the more easily we are to adapt.  It’s important not to presume malice by those with a lot of power. They are most likely well intentioned but ill informed through no fault but our own collective human designs. This seems well represented in our socioeconomic technologic design we call money, the first principal operator for all human power. What is this power, if not an expression of information doing work over time for a collective goal of civilized progress?  Don’t we all have a responsibility where we direct our energy? Fixating on a problem without resolution, might be akin to stabbing oneself in the leg in order to get it to move. Once the problem has been identified through logic and reasoning in the social sciences, a solution should be found and vigorously tested.

 A utopia may not be possible, but does this mean we shouldn’t try with careful deliberation and balanced engineering to explore harmonious symbiosis in our natural systems? 

It certainly seems that life is found in the enduring tendency towards infinite complexity. 

Can we think of any greater expression of life other than creating abundant prosperity and joyful longevity? What better way to accomplish this than by giving more probability of the before mentioned to the majority of the population?

Thank you for your time and energy in reading.

 If this paper generates enough interest and value to people, a book is quite likely. It would have stories, a lot more examples, and some colorful characters. To be honest with the reader, even if it doesn’t stimulate excitement in many people, the songs of the heart must be expressed. Like some concerto welling up inside, the music must be played to be heard and interpreted. 

As a teaser, I do have a theory on why the EFP has a direct relation to the fermi paradox in our capacity as a species to exchange information with others. If we can get our proverbial shit together, maybe we could find means of communication? 

 Great care was taken to be direct about the Energy Freedom Paradox. It can be challenging to put in simple terms without diving too deep in the varying degrees of nuances. Truthfully, this is a very complex topic of interconnecting systems dynamics too, which likely can’t be fathomed independently. 

It also should be acknowledged that this subject can be quite paradigm shattering. It has been met with a lot of resistance in many communities when talked about in open debate. In particular when talked about in communities where personal monetary investment is involved.  

These things take time to process and develop. It is not the author’s intention to radically change institutions or organizations. Only present a point of view which may be lacking in the present day. 

It’s somewhat enjoyable to be enlightened to the errors in logic and reasoning for the author. So if you have any critical thoughts you would like to infer, please feel free to comment or reach out with communication. 

If you enjoyed this content and you subscribe to its philosophical thesis, consider sharing it with others. You can also donate to the author’s research and development of lattice enabled fusion experiments.

Your time and energy is greatly appreciated.

Chat GPT Summary:

The essay introduces the Energy Freedom Paradox (EFP), which states that energy can only be perceived as free based on the total relativistic capacity of the involved systems. The EFP is a combination of philosophy, physics, and psychology, to explore how human behavior influences other energy systems in determining the amount of freedom these systems have in exchanging information.

The essay explains that the EFP is a paradox because it lies in the relative probability of isolation between systems and the potential difference between them. It also discusses the impact of energy density, velocity, and resistance on the field interactions and how these interactions lead to dynamic frequencies and vibrations of emerging complexities.

The essay is written in a way that aims to make the concept of the EFP easy to understand for a non-technical audience. The author provides examples of physical systems to help demonstrate the concept and encourages the reader to form their own conclusion on the topic.

The essay also touches on the connection between spirituality and science and tries to bridge the two concepts together. The author emphasizes that the essay is not to be taken as religious doctrine or reduced to any political ideology and instead is an attempt to address issues in physics, philosophy, and psychology to come up with solutions for a better future.

One thought on “The Energy Freedom Paradox

  1. A nice paper, and some serious mental nourishment. I think you might enjot Carlo Rovelli’s new book about Anaximander, the ancient Greek ‘father of science’ – Rovelli is a physicist (Quantum Gravity) but he has much to say about the interaction between human thought and the environments that shape it and in turn are shaped by it.
