Terrific or terrifying, or maybe electrifying ? You decide….
We have had Sci-Fi, science fiction, God’s Sky program to train our minds to accept and welcome the future that science has pre-created for us.
We have had Hi-Fi, high fidelity, the sound transmission of the music industry, altering our ears to be tuned to the annoying noise of 440Hz, instead of 432Hz.
We have had WiFi, wireless Fi (what is Fi ?), so that we are always switched on and plugged in, no longer any need for switches or plugs.
Now it is time for Tree Fi…
Richard Branson has set up a Virgin Earth Prize, he is offerering a reward of $25 million to whoever can come up with a device to suck the excess carbon out of the atmosphere, thereby solving the climate change crisis.
Maybe I should tell him that Mother Earth has already invented such a device and it is called a TREE. A tree sucks the carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and gives us back oxygen for us to breathe. Perfect.
I suspect that “A TREE” is the wrong answer, because the idea is to make big profits out of the new device, and to create a cultural climate whereby we continue to destroy the Earth whilst believing ourselves to be Good and Eco and Green. Before long, it will be accepted fact that chopping down trees is good for the environment. It seems to me that trees are getting in the way of GOING GREEN, trees are obstacles to the progress of the BIG GREEN agenda.
I would guess that the answer Branson wants, the one that will win the prize, is “E TREE”. An Electric tree. An Environmentally friendly Eco Energy Electronic sort of E-tree, that is man made (in slave factories of course). And it is going to solve climate change for us ! Big Brother Branson to the rescue !
An e-tree will be taller than natural trees, just like those other man made things that are taller… church spires, phone masts, twin towers and solar towers, all electrified and reaching up to heaven, whilst connected by metal conductors to earth. All things to be worshipped, bigger and better than any of those messy dirty dangerous things that Mother Earth makes.
An e-tree will suck the carbon out of the air, a regulated controlled amount. If they get it right, they can slowly starve the plants and the real trees of their carbon food, and the natural plant world will die, whilst the new e-tree becomes the invasive species that takes over.
The new e-tree will be planted in electric cities electri city, so that people can be carbon neutral, and erase their guilt about over consumption, and carry on consuming more than ever before. e-trees will be better than real trees, no annoying falling leaves, no tree preservation orders to worry about, and they can switch on nice synthetic autumn coloured lights in October, and silvery ones at Xmas, except the colours will be slightly off-tone to affront our senses and alter our frequencies, just as the hifi music industry blasts us with the wrong sound frequency. Richard Branson is big in the music industry too.
The e-tree will capture carbon and feed the power of the carbon elsewhere. Maybe up to the sky for the spaceship that Branson is working on. I guess the e-tree will balance out any Eco unfriendly problems caused by his spaceships and planes. It doesn’t matter how evil you are in the Big Eco world, as long as you can convince people that you have offset it somewhere else with Good. Branson can spew out tons of carbon in space, and have a charitable balancing “Plant an e-tree” program back on Earth.
Or maybe the e-tree will feed the underground tunnel network, through its “roots”, or “routers”, electric cables feeding carbon generated electricity into the ground. The underground tunnel network is far bigger than most people realise, it is well hidden from view.
It’s going to be brilliant, this new e-tree world.
We can roll out the mass manufacture of e-trees in Chinese factories, and supply them to cities around the world. It all makes good Economical Eco sense. Because Big Eco is really about Economic growth, not ecology at all. We will have to chop down trees of course to build the essential Eco factories, and we might need to chop down more trees for Eco solar farms to run the factories, and to make space for airports (Eco airports of course) to transport the e-trees around the world.
And especially we will need to chop down trees to make way for Eco cities and spaceship launchpads too.
The Earth Prize is being billed as Big Eco and Big Green, when really such a device will just erase guilt and allow everyone to carry on disturbing the balance of nature, not least of all Richard Branson himself, with all his planes and spaceships and WiFi and SciFi and HiFi.
The real trees will get in the way of the e-trees because the e-trees will be Eco friendly solar powered. And anything solar powered requires the natural trees out of the way. The damn things block the Sun.
In the city of Bath near where I live, they are “electrifying” the railway. Probably elsewhere too. That included a lot of tree chopping. A well known joke in England is how the trains can’t run on time in the Autumn, due to “leaves on the line”. Imagine if we have e-trees instead, with unlimited electricity and wifi, and NO LEAVES to cause problems.
Branson is big on trains too.
Climate Change is about changing our cultural climate. We are switching over to Tree Fi, the Big Switch over, ready for a new spaceship style world, completely severed from nature. Branson is also big on Spaceships (which incidentally, won’t have much space, though maybe a bit more space than trains and planes do). Do you really want to stay on board to find out what is coming next ? Or do you want to get off and get Earthed ? Your choice.
Electric (power or fuel) and wifi (communication and information) seem to be blending, becoming one into one terrific electrifying tree fying climatic climax. Power to the People, we are told, but methinks it is Power to the Pope and to the Paedophiles. When Pope Francis was selected, lightening struck the Vatican as if the Vatican was a tree. Maybe its time for Richard Branson and The Pope to team up on Green issues.
Tree Fi is the merger of electricity, wifi, and carbon into one whole new energy program. It seems that electricity and wifi are becoming one. (See Solar Saviour). We will all have an electric wife at our disposal, always on, always available, always clearing up the mess we make from over consumption, …so much better than a human version.
I always find it interesting how the modern replacements for nature emulate nature. And so I conclude that anything that Tree Fi claims to do, NATURE CAN ALREADY DO.
If e-trees allow remote communication via the internet, then I would say that natural trees already have that power. I am coming to believe that via ROOTS, the roots of trees, our shared roots in our ancestry, our shared roots to the Earth, and through our own root chakras too. Trees can Earth us, take us into the arms of Mother Nature, just as Tree Fi will take us deeper into the arms of Big Brother.
Trees capture carbon and generate oxygen that powers humans. The new e-tree will generate another sort of power, electricity, which will power robots.
Nature’s trees keep us cool in summer, and warm in winter. In fact they are perfect at balancing out the extremes of the behaviour of the Sun. Trees are older and wiser than humans, they outlive humans, they know more than we do because they have lived so much longer.
That is why the Plant-a-Tree Eco program wants to chop down old trees in exchange for planting new ones, mass produced in nurseries. It’s the Big Eco way of balancing the books, not the Mother Earth way of balancing nature.
The finalists for the Virgin Earth Prize have now been listed, and a quick scroll down shows me at least one of them makes “artificial” trees.
The Earth is not a Virgin of course, she has been invaded and raped over and over again. She has been prised prized open like an oyster, and her prized pearl removed. The “Virgin Earth Prize” is a phrase carefully designed to sound like the prize that is a virgin bride, (as the Royals require), or maybe a virgin child that paedophiles prefer. It is a reminder that a virgin is still prized, and that virgins are still sold for a good price on the electrified internet (See Centre for Missing and Exploited Children) This is in keeping with the Branson brand of sexual innuendo, and that should be enough to warn us off.
So you can see that Branson is now big in the Big Green Industry, whilst carrying on promoting mass consumerism and selling endless harmful devices.
Whilst writing this post, I wondered if there already was an e-tree somewhere, so I did a quick internet search, please see the link below, it is called “eTree” and it is in Israel. This e-tree is not at all Green, there is no colour green to be seen. Am I going colour blind ? Or is it like the Wizard of Oz story, where everything in the City of Oz looks Green, because all the citizens go around permanently wearing green tinted glasses.
The internet is deemed to be the source of all knowledge, though it is not. And methinks the new Israeli eTree is the new Tree of Knowledge in the centre of the Garden of Eden. It provides wifi and electricity. We are all Adams and Eves, it is all happening now. Are we going to plant loads of these eTrees, are we going to carry on with our thirst for Apples, wifi and electricity ?
Maybe one day soon we will be able to pick an apple off the eTree and eat it ! Then we will be connected, implanted with a programmable chip.
Only when the last tree has died, the last fish gone etc etc, will we realise we cannot eat or breathe electricty…. Which will leave the Roman robots in charge, or anyone willing to sign themselves over to electricity as a life support system.
