I am the person who wrote the file on EER. Electronic Electricity Repository has collected a ton of cyberdust over these many years.
I think I see why.
I think it is because I tried to duplicate mother nature, and that was not an approach that anybody took seriously. I talked about digging into innerspace for the surface area on which to store energy collected from natural sources. Using STM-related technology.
It scared people away. It made me a nut, a troll.
Yet, it is the essence, the core of the energy question. That is, if you - as I do - believe that the energy question amounts to finding a way to replace the energy function of oil.
Replace it. Duplicate it. Duplicate it with modern electronic wizardry.
If you want new sources of energy, there are many.
If you want to duplicate the energy function of oil, there is only one path: innerspace.
Not as spooky as it sounds. We can configure on the molecular level today with STM-related technology.
We just need to do it for capacitor-plates-in-innerspace-for-energy-storage. That's all.
THAT would replicate the energy-storage function of oil. Yes it would. Using modern electronics.
Not easy, but that is what MUST be done to replace oil-for-energy, and get us away from the dreaded middle east.
Just a self-bolstering thought.
