Whole Brained Thinking

'Charting the Course'
is an education
that encourages
more whole brain
the reliance
which brings
thinkers, in a
closed, holistic
learning network.

people along the
autism spectrum are
naturally more
while "neurotypical"
people, tend to, from a young age, become dominant
thinkers, with the exception that both
access interhemispheric, and graduated, thought.

The 'Charting the Course' education proposal
shares a vision for a school system that will help all character-types, including people who are dominant left-brained thinkers, who think more linearly, and who are dominant right-brained thinkers, who think more by association, in part by bringing them together into one classroom.

The proposal is also for a single, closed, holistic system, which interweaves the modern education system with holistic, closed systems of the world.

Energy from the Sun
By Yasha Husain
February 3, 2013

Truth be told, all energy is solar, and countless sustainable forms of solar energy are available to us, which we should be exploiting.

Following is a blueprint of how to do solar energy in America, creating a robust, localized system, that also stretches from coast to coast.

To begin with, build a national grid that is minimalist and a flexible structure, that can take and leave local, sustainable, energy sources, that contribute to one stable energy pool, with capacity for constant and directional power, locally.

Second, local solar, energy sources should include the following:

Solar farms:
For example, small, medium and large-sized, reflecting farms, using concave, aluminum reflectors, taller than troughs, but less expensive than mirrors, because they are simple aluminum designs, built adjacent to roadways in residential neighborhoods, and in what were once empty lots, and open, deserted fields, attached, each of the farms, to a central power source, seemingly a tower that holds molten salt which stores energy and provides electrical power in the way a battery would (ideas similar to what the Spanish have carried out commercially at the joint venture, Torresol Energy).

Single installations of reflecting mirrors organized squarely on what look like large-sized satellite dishes, an idea spawned, in Israel, by Zenith Solar, which utilizes 75 percent of the energy harnessed to feed electrical power to as many as 300 houses, can potentially be mounted in holding areas atop of buildings, or placed on earth as satellites.

Possible ceramic reflectors situated along an earthen floor, an out-of-the-box idea, attached to a central power source, is yet another solar energy possibility.

For all natural air conditioning: To cool buildings holistically: build berm or thick walls. The material rock or earth, depending on climate and topography, naturally holds heat during the day, and releases it at night. Use ceramic floors, since their insulating; place vents in ceilings that allow natural breezes to filter through; also use fans and use heavy curtains to cover passive light windows.

Use Sardargh-like contraptions, which create shade or collect sun via tall walls made of rock or stabilized earth. On their shaded side, the walls house ice that's kept deep down in the earthen floor, over which may be placed a “powerless,” room-sized, refrigerator and freezer unit. On their opposite side, solar heat is collected, and can, too, be harnessed for particular energy purposes. For instance, there's potential, from both sides, for all natural cooling and heating via underground spaces that contain and then direct energy, through vents, thereby cooling, and heating, floors as well as rooms of buildings. (For more information on Sardargh, read: Racing Alone, by visionary earth and space architect, Nader Khalili)

Wind turbines: Independent operators, representing both individuals and small communities, and even regions, as well as business developers, may install their own turbines, which are designed to reach maximum capacity of power output, even while offshore wind farms may ramp up supply of local and regional energy. It's a reasonable cost analysis that we benefit from offshore wind since it's an environmentally sustainable energy source and its cost-efficient to rebuild the large farms, if and when a hurricane comes along.

Able to be utilized by individual residences and commercial complexes, geothermal should be used frequently, since it's a practical solar energy source and doesn't require heavy reliance on extracted natural resources. It requires, universally, only digging to a specified depth in the ground and tailored power conversion.

Safe and effective hydrogen energy sources: As modeled by modern science, these can be used for homes and building complexes and can be fired by solar or wind energy devices.

Passive lighting and green and earthen buildings: Homes and buildings can increasingly be self-sustaining, energy bodies, using sources of local solar energy, including those mentioned above, and energy-efficient designs reliant on all natural materials that demand only minimum manufacture, or processing.

Finally, with regard transportation, coast to coast, recharging of vehicles can be accomplished via connections to charging stations attached to the national grid. Housing units and commercial buildings can contain vehicle charging units, as well, allowing leftover energy to be transferred between vehicle and building.

Public transport would use only clean energy and be accessible from all stops of popular commutes. There would be biking and walking paths plenty situated in neighborhoods and larger communities, making not only driving, and public transport, the transportation means of choice.
