Planet Earth or Planet Oceana?
The majority of the planet is covered in water. Technology can help us protect it.
“I am enough of the artist to draw freely upon my imagination.
Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
- Albert Einstein, 1929.
We are all made of nutrients, and so is the planet.
Nutrients are simply the building blocks of life, like minerals are the building blocks of rocks or metals. Atoms are the building blocks of minerals and nutrients, and all the combinations of complex molecules and larger life forms - including humans.
Water is a simple molecule made of one atom of oxygen and two atoms of hydrogen. The quantum effects of light and mass which were described by Albert Einstein act at the sub-atomic level of electrons and protons and also may effect very small atoms and molecules.
Energy equals mass times the speed of light squared - so the mass has to be very small to require less energy than the speed of light in order to move in energy form. (space.com)
Quantum mechanics does not mean mass/energy moves faster than the speed of light. (physics.stackexhange.com)
Many small particles, electrons or protons or more complex very small molecules, are electrically active within a electric/magnetic field, called plasma fields or quantum fields.
For more information see the video lecture: Quantum Fields: The Real Building Blocks of the Universe - with David Tong, (Youtube).
If this seems confusing - it is, even the physicists admit that - see the video or the links. Electrons are very small - the energy of an electron is roughly 0.000,000,000,000,081,87 kgm/s (81.87 x 10e -15). Protons are slightly larger - the energy of a proton, momentum to move a proton, is roughly 0.000,000,000,150,3 kgm/s (15.03 x 10e-11). My own mass (weight in kilograms) is larger, the energy I contain, the momentum to move me in energy form, is roughly 7,190,000,000,000,000,000 kgm/s (kilogram meters/second) (719 x 10e16). The speed of light is 299,792,458 meters per second. So roughly an electron and a proton have a mass and an energy close to zero, photons of light have a mass of zero - I do not have a mass or energy close to zero and have to drive at the speed limit instead of quantumly moving at the speed of light.
Within plants photosynthesis involves quantum effects and within our cells mitochondria provide us with energy using quantum effects. The nutrients we eat, the toxins that we are exposed to, and the electrical magnetic frequencies that we are exposed to may all help or hinder our cellular health, which then effects our overall health. Other animals and plants are also effected by the nutrients available to them and the toxins and electrical magnetic frequencies to which they are exposed.
For a healthy planet we need to protect ourselves and other life from toxins, work to use and recycle resources (nutrients) in a sustainable manner, and limit exposure of the life forms to excessive electrical magnetic frequencies. That is a big goal, however humans are smart and creative and can achieve big accomplishments - we can do this if we work together. Our children and great, great, great grandchildren need us to keep our eyes on the long term goal of protecting our paradise - Planet Earth.
Earth - our home
A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE.
Planet Earth is a great place to live - more so for some than others. Climate change and urban and industrial pollution affect some areas more than others and the types of risks vary. Preparing in advance to cope with expected change can reduce risk of harm to life, whether human or farm animal or wildlife, and reduce risk of damage to property.
The focus of the blog and other areas of this website includes how technology may help with more sustainable management of resources and preventative health information for humans and the environment. Phytoplankton in the ocean make about half of the oxygen in our atmosphere - the health of the ocean is also our health.
For more information about oceans, or to donate in support of ocean health see a nonprofit organization site, (unaffiliated with this site): oceana.org.
Nutrients make everything possible.
The word nutrient generally refers to the minerals and more complex chemicals found in food that are needed for sustaining life. Oxygen is also a nutrient that we absorb from the air and we exhale carbon dioxide. Other animals on land and in the ocean also need oxygen to breath and exhale carbon dioxide. Plants and phytoplankton produce oxygen and use carbon dioxide.
It is a cycle that has worked well for millions of years. Since the industrial age when humans started using coal in large quantities the carbon dioxide being produced has increased. Trees and the ocean plant life can help absorb some of the excess carbon dioxide but we have to stop cutting down forests and harming ocean habitats.
Scope of Practice is a term used in health professions to describe an area of expertise. My career experience is in the area of prenatal and early childhood nutrition counseling with training and some work experience across the lifespan.
Information Technology - IT.
Technology includes machinery and other structures. Information Technology (IT) refers more specifically to computer and telecommunications technology. Specialization in engineering, IT, and other areas of work also has experts who focus on specific types of tasks. Extensive training and experience are needed to create software programs or design machines. Generally teams work together with different types of specialists doing parts of the whole.
In the business world and technology industry a team may include a person who knows a little about many things - a jack of all trades. Having a wider perspective may help the team save time by sharing information from other fields of study that the specialists may not have been aware of - why reinvent the wheel when someone in the already established wheel industry can just make one to spec?
Aurora - The Northern Lights
The Northern Lights are a colorful display seen in areas near to the Arctic Circle. It is a physics phenomenon - electrically active atoms of oxygen and nitrogen - moving in a fluid and colorful display of a quantum field. (csegrecorder)
