Value III

I am not so sure Sonny, most business models disregard the energetic input available to reproduce cyberspace and consumption.

Advertising simply uses natural resources to promote the further use of natural resources. If natural resources are limited, and I can assure you they are, then the business model actually has no social or environmental value.

That is to say the value is purely speculative, and subject to the ability to produce paper/digital profits from the increased use of natural resources.

Our value system is increasingly based on securing short term profits through longer term destruction. Those that profit promote this as a belief which many buy into because the religiosity doesn’t mention the side effects.

Collectively the human race is addicted to a system that promotes anthropogenic egotistical value above life itself. For example, the industry of war is increasingly valuable even though we know the implications.

Replacement

By 2030 the EU aims to generate 27% of its energy from renewable sources. However, the renewable-energy sector in Europe is heavily reliant on hydrocarbons for the supply of raw materials critical for the development of technology such as solar cells and wind turbines.

Recycling

Know that nothing is

everything

that nothing is

 

Potential is entropic

decreasing the potential to do the same thing twice

creates a new potential

 

the image we have of,

shadows on a wall

is the potential of a thing

 

if it were a one shot deal

Nothing would be everything

Forever

My ipadery

Was a tree

hell, was a few hundred thousand trees

old as heck

and withered into coal

 

or some other fossil fuel

equally able to power the economies

that dig it up.

To create technology

 

in a perfect market

substitution is infinite

and technology will create itself.
