They were exploited by corrupt officials rather than effectively resettled, and they took up arms, the fall of rome essay, joined by more The fall of rome essay and by some Alans and Huns. With his position thus strengthened he declared Stilicho a public enemy, and he established Alaric as magister militum per Illyricum. He compared the publication of each succeeding volume to a newborn child. I w as born in While the pursuit of mutual self-interest is the very definition of politics, self-interested people were easily defeated by organized suppression, although the efforts usually self-destructed before suppression efforts became intense. They found the key to understanding the British Empire in the ruins of Rome.

I w as born in In that same year, I had my cultural and mystical awakenings. During my second year of college, I had my first existential crisis and a paranormal event changed my studies from science to business. I s till held my energy dreams, however, and in , eight years after that first paranormal event, I had a second one that suddenly caused me to move up the coast from Los Angeles to Seattle, where I landed in the middle of what is arguably the greatest attempt yet made to bring alternative energy to the American marketplace.

That effort was killed by the local electric industry , which saw our technology as a threat to its revenues and profits, and my wild ride began. The owner of the Seattle business left the state to rebuild his effort. I followed him to Boston and soon became his partner. My use of "radical" intends to convey the original " going to the root " meaning.

He would never see the energy industry the same way again after his radicalization also called " awakening " in Seattle, but he had more radicalization ahead of him.

The d ay after I arrived in Boston, we began to pursue what is today called free energy, or new energy, which is abundant and harmlessly produced energy generated with almost no operating cost. We attracted the interest of a legendary and shadowy group while we were in Boston. I have called that group the Global Controllers and others have different terms for them.

However, they are not the focus of my writings and efforts. I regard them as a symptom of our collective malaise , not a cause. Our fate is in our hands, not theirs. In , we moved our business to Ventura, California , where I had been raised, before the sledgehammer in Boston could fall on us. We moved because I had connected us with technologies and talent that made our free energy ideas potentially feasible.

Our public awareness efforts became highly successful and we were building free energy prototypes. In early , our efforts were targeted by the local authorities, again at the behest of energy interests, both local and global.

In a surprise raid in which the authorities blatantly stole our technical materials , mere weeks after those same authorities assured us that we were not doing anything illegal , my radicalization began. Soon after my partner refused their offer, he was arrested with a million dollar bail and our nightmare began. It helped inspire me to sacrifice my life in an attempt to free my partner.

My gesture incredibly worked, in the greatest miracle that I ever witnessed. I helped free my partner, but my life had been ruined by the events of , and in I left Ventura and never returned. I had been radicalized " awakened " , and I then spent the next several years seeking understanding of what I had lived through and why the world worked starkly differently from how I was taught that it did.

I began the study and writing that culminated in publishing my first website in , which was also when I briefly rejoined my former partner after he was released from prison, after the courts fraudulently placed him there and prison officials repeatedly put him in position to be murdered.

The Global Controllers then raised their game to new, sophisticated levels and I nearly went to prison. As I discovered the hard way, contr ary to my business school indoctrination , there is little that resembles a free market in the USA, particularly in its energy industry, and there has never been a truly free market , a real democracy, a free press , an objective history , a purely pursued scientific method , or any other imaginary constructs that our dominant institutions promote.

They may all be worthy ideals, but none has existed in the real world. Soon af ter I moved from Ventura, I met a former astronaut who was hired by NASA with a Mars mission in mind and was investigating the free energy field. We eventually became colleagues and co-founded a non-profit organization intended to raise public awareness of new energy.

In the spring of , I spent a few days with my former free energy partner and, like my astronaut colleague, he had also been run out of the USA after mounting an effort around high-MPG carburetor technology. Every American president since Ronald Reagan knew my partner by name , but they proved to be rather low-ranking in the global power structure. My astro naut colleague investigated the UFO phenomenon early in his adventures on the frontiers of science and nearly lost his life immediately after refusing an "offer" to perform classified UFO research for the American military.

It became evident that the UFO and free energy issues were conjoined. A faction of the global elite demonstrated some of their exotic and sequestered technologies to a close fellow traveler, which included free energy and antigravity technologies.

My astronaut colleague was involved with the same free energy inventor that some around me were, who invented a solid-state free energy prototype that not only produced a million times the energy that went into it, but it also produced antigravity effects. It was no conspiracy theory, but what my fellow travelers and I learned at great personal cost, which was regularly fatal.

My former partner is the Indiana Jones of the free energy field, but I eventually realized that while it was awe-inspiring to witness his efforts, one man with a whip and fedora cannot save humanity from itself.

I eventually took a different path from both my partner and astronaut colleague, and one fruit of that direction is this essay. Not only was the public largely indifferent to what we were attempting, but those attracted to our efforts usually either came for the spectacle or were opportunists who betrayed us at the first opportunity.

As w e weathered attacks from the local , state , national , and global power structures, such treacherous opportunities abounded. The antics of the global elites are of minor importance; the enemy is us. Soon after I completed my present website in , one of R. The references that support this essay are usually to works written for non-scientists or those of modest academic achievement so that non-scientists can study the same works without needing specialized scientific training.

I am trying to help form a comprehensive awareness in a tiny fraction of the global population. Between 5, and 7, people is my goal. Properly educated, that group might be able to help catalyze an energy effort that can overcome the obstacles.

That envisioned group may help humanity in many ways, but my primary goal is manifesting those technologies in the public sphere in a way that nobody risks life or livelihood.

Here is a brief sum mary of this essay. Ever since life first appeared more than three billion years ago and about a billion years after the Sun and Earth formed, organisms have continually invented more effective methods to acquire, preserve, and use energy.

Complex life appeared after three billion years of evolution and, pound-for-pound, it used energy , times as fast as the Sun produced it. The story of life on Earth has been one of evolutionary events impacted by geophysical and geochemical processes , and in turn influencing them. During the eon of complex life that began more than million years ago, there have been many brief golden ages of relative energy abundance for some fortunate species, soon followed by increased energy competition, a relatively stable struggle for energy, and then mass extinction events cleared biomes and set the stage for another golden age by organisms adapted to the new environments.

Those newly dominant organisms were often marginal or unremarkable members of their ecosystems before the mass extinction. That pattern has characterized the journey of complex life over the past several hundred million years.

Intelligence began increasing among some animals, which provided them with a competitive advantage. The oldest stone tools yet discovered are about 3. About two million years later, the human line evolved to the point where behaviorally modern humans appeared, left Africa , and conquered all inhabitable continents.

After all the easy meat was extinct and the brief Golden Age of the Hunter-Gatherer ended, population pressures led to the Third Epochal Event: That event led to civilization, and many features of the human journey often argued to be human nature, such as slavery and the subjugation of women , were merely artifacts of the energy regime and societal structure of agrarian civilizations.

Early civilizations were never stable; their energy practices were largely based on deforestation and agriculture, usually on the deforested soils , and such civilizations primarily collapsed due to their unsustainable energy production methods. Europeans thereby began conquering the world. During that conquest, one imperial contender turned to fossil fuels after its woodlands were depleted by early industrialization. As E uropeans conquered Earth, elites, who first appeared with the first civilizations , could begin thinking in global terms for the first time, and a global power structure began developing.

Toda y, industrialized humanity is almost wholly dependent on the energy provided by hydrocarbon fuels that were created by geological processes operating on the remains of organisms , and humanity is mining and burning those hydrocarbon deposits about a million times as fast as they were created.

We are reaching peak extraction rates but, more importantly, we have already discovered all of the easily acquired hydrocarbons.

The megafauna extinctions created the energy crisis that led to domestication and civilization , and the energy crisis of early industrialization led to using hydrocarbon energy , and the energy crisis of attracted my fellow travelers and me to alternative energy.

However, far more often over the course of the human journey, depleting energy resources led to population collapses and even local extinctions of humans in remote locations. Expanding and collapsing populations have characterized rising and falling polities during the past several thousand years, ever since the first civilizations appeared.

Today, humanity stands on the brink of the abyss , and almost nobody seems to know or care. Humanity is a tunnel-visioned, egocentric species, and almost all people are only concerned about their immediate self-interest and are oblivious of what lies ahead.

Not all humans are so blind, and biologists and climate scientists , among others intimately familiar with the impacts of global civilization, are terrified by what humanity is inflicting onto Earth. Even th e ultra-elites who run Earth from the shadows readily see how their game of chicken with Earth may turn out. Their more extreme members advocate terraforming Mars as their ultimate survival enclave if their games of power and control make Earth uninhabitable.

But the saner members, who may now be a majority of that global cabal , favor the dissemination of those sequestered technologies. I am nearly certain that members of that disenchanted faction are those who gave my close friend an underground technology demonstration and who would quietly cheer our efforts when I worked with my former partner.

They may also be subtly supporting my current efforts, of which this essay comprises a key component, but I have not heard from them and am not counting on them to save the day or help my efforts garner success.

Humanity can then live, for the first time, in an epoch of true and sustainable abundance. It could also halt the Sixth Mass Extinction and humanity could turn Earth into something resembling heaven. With t he Fifth Epochal Event, humanity will become a space-faring species, and a future will beckon that nobody on Earth today can truly imagine, just as nobody on Earth could predict how the previous Epochal Events transformed the human journey 1 , 2 , 3 , 4. Also, each E pochal Event was initiated by a small group of people , perhaps even by one person for the earliest events , and even the Industrial Revolution and its attendant Scientific Revolution had few fathers.

However, I came to realize that there is probably nobody else on Earth like my former partner , and even Indiana Jones cannot save the world by himself. With the strategy that I finally developed, I do not look for heroes because I know that there are not enough currently walking Earth. I am attempting something far more modest. But after watching similar scenarios play out dozens of times, I finally had to admit the obvious , and my partner admitted it to me in I noticed several crippling weaknesses in all alternative energy efforts that I was involved with or witnessed.

Most importantly, when my partner mounted his efforts, people participated primarily to serve their self-interest. While the pursuit of mutual self-interest is the very definition of politics, self-interested people were easily defeated by organized suppression, although the efforts usually self-destructed before suppression efforts became intense. Another deficiency in all mass free energy efforts was that most participants were scientifically illiterate and did not see much beyond the possibility of reducing their energy bills or becoming rich and famous.

Once the effort was destroyed and they always are, if they have any promise , the participants left the alternative energy field. Also, many lives were wrecked as each effort was defeated, so almost nobody was able or willing to try again. Every time that my partner rebuilt his efforts, it was primarily with new people; few individuals lasted for more than one attempt.

I reali ze that almost nobody on Earth today can pass the integrity tests that my fellow travelers were subjected to, and I do not ask that of anybody whom I will attempt to recruit into my upcoming effort. Those recruits will simply be singing a song of practical abundance that will attract those who have been listening for that song for their entire lives. I am looking for singers, not soldiers, and the choir will primarily sing here.

This effort could be called trying the enlightenment path to free energy, an abundance-based global political economy, and a healed humanity and planet. I believe that the key is approaching the issue as creators instead of victims, from a place of love instead of fear. Those goals may seem grandiose to the uninitiated, and people in this field regularly succumb to a messiah complex and harbor other delusions of grandeur , but I also know that those aspirations are attainable if only a tiny fraction of humanity can help initiate that Fifth Epochal Event , just like the previous Epochal Events.

The table below presents an abbreviated geologic time scale, with times and events germane to this essay. Please refer to a complete geologic time scale when this one seems inadequate. The Fall of Jericho: 1: Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in. 2: And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valor.: 3: And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt .
