We have scheduled May 1 in Salt Lake City to meet in person to sign our founding documents and further brainstorm the roll-out of the company and accomplishment of its objectives.
"We feel like the industry has matured enough, and several promising technologies are close enough to making it to market that it makes sense to start getting very aggressive about the networking aspect, to help match up technologies with professional services, financing, licensees, and customers.
"We would like to become an incubation agent for the technologies, to make the match-ups needed to bring the technology successfully to market as rapidly and effectively as possible.
"So people will come to PES to sign up in one of these capacities, and PES will then help vet these sign-ups, to provide better matches for the technologies.
"We will be focusing on just the top breakthrough exotic free energy technologies, which are the most promising, taking into consideration criteria such as: availability, affordability, environmental impact, sustainability, reliability, scalability, and safety."
One of the visionaries that has joined our founding efforts is Michael Upstone, who I interviewed on March 5, and which interview had a significant role in molding my thinking in this new direction. If you haven't yet seen our story accompanying that interview, you should check it out. Here's the news bullet we posted:
Mike Upstone on Free Energy as a New Economic Standard, and other Alternative Solutions (Interview) – With the prospect of affordable, clean energy technologies now emerging onto the scene, we should also ponder the prospect of new forms of economic stability and even monetary systems based on these new, abundant, inexhaustible technologies. Mike Upstone provides some refreshing economic concepts. (PESN; March 5, 2012)
Mike's agenda is much more broad than ours, taking into account all things "alternative," including health, building, communities, economy, banking; and he's making great strides in growing his network of forward thinkers, tentatively being called "People's Trust."
Its very much solution oriented, answering so much of what is wrong in today's world as the nations slide into economic meltdown by design of the New World Order insiders who seek to enslave humanity and destroy freedom.
Our New Energy Systems Trust would be a subset point of action in that larger umbrella of solutions.
We'd love to have Michael join us on May first at our in-person signing and launch of NEST. Unfortunately, being in the visionary mode, he is not presently financially able to cover his trip to Salt Lake. I told him that I would approach our PESN audience about chipping in.
Mike is such a humble yet extremely talented visionary. While electronic meetings are great, there is nothing like meeting people in person, catching the other 90% of communication that is non-verbal, etc. I'd love to be able to have such an opportunity with all the founders, including Mike, as we launch this NEST initiative and further strategize.
Then I went and looked at the airline ticket prices, ringing it at over $2,000; and I thought that was a bit much to ask of you. But Mike responded, saying that at DialAFlight.com he was quoted $844; and he has a couple of other stops he'd like to make, and hopefully they can chip in as well. We'd like to get this pinned down soon, to nail down a low price.
If you can help with a donation, that would be great.
I'm sure some of you will be asking: "What ever happened to all those donations you pulled in for your S. African trip and purchase/shipping of the 5 kW unit that hasn't materialized yet?"
Let me address that briefly. First, some of that is being held in reserve for when that does materialize, which we hope will be the case in the coming months, if not sooner. Second, as I mentioned when we ran that donation drive, some of those funds were needed for PES maintenance, and helped enable us to make a much-needed move.
My Recent Move
I had a much more detailed explanation here, but my wife thought it was way too much private information, so this is an abbreviated version.
I work from home, and the place we were renting had several significant shortcomings. When we moved there, we had (naively) thought we could have a home built in our intentional community project (http://SaveHavenVillages.org) within a year or two; but the reality is that it will take us much longer. All the money from our previous home went into getting the 90 acres of land.
Since I've been taking such a beating in the comments below, I've decided to include a couple of reasons why we needed to move.
- Landlord would have us move out if things fell apart in the world economy, so his daughter's family could move in.
- Our 4 kids (6-12 years old) were sharing one room, etc.
Meanwhile, one day last January, my wife got the urge to go look at a home. She did a search, found a home she loved, that had pretty much all the features she wanted, within a reasonable price range; and we went and looked at it. That is the only home we looked at, and we ended up getting a "zero down" mortgage based on the past three years of earnings and our credit record.
Gratefully, in Utah, you can get homes very cheap, compared to what the same home/acreage would cost elsewhere. Additionally, the home was foreclosed and had been on the market for quite a while and had a reduced price.
Even though it was "zero down", there were a few expenses involved in prepping the house and moving. Even thought a lot of those expenses were covered by our tax returns, the bottom line is that a lot of those donated funds for the S. African trip ended up being swallowed up in this move.
My wife doesn't feel the least bit conflicted about this since she has been the primary one to sacrifice over the past decade to enable me to pursue this line of work. She believes, as I do, that free energy is the coming wave of the future, and our sacrifices are going to enable a lot of people to recover from poverty and be able to pursue what they love, rather than live as slaves to the system.
My deepest appreciation goes to all of you who are visionaries in looking to a better world, and who appreciate the work we do here at PES to track and facilitate the best free energy technologies toward the marketplace.
