The last 117 years have changed the world for ever. This last Century has brought about more advancement than the rest of human history put together.
From Guglielmo Marconi: an Italian inventor sending and receiving his first radio signal in Italy in 1895 and 1899 the first wireless signal across the English Channel and in 1901 received the first telegraph letter to now the Internet and email and Skype… we can see and talk to anyone almost anywhere on the planet and also parts of space, find out almost anything at the touch of a screen…
Can you believe the first battery electric car was invented by Ányos Jedlik, one of the inventors of the electric motor, and Gaston Planté, who invented the lead-acid battery in 1859, However it took us until 1997 to get a commercially sound Electric car, the Toyota Prius which was released in 2000. This showed that our society blindly chose to head toward a destructive future, preferring to use oil and fossil fuels and heading for environmentally unfriendly progress.
From early 1970’s as oil prices soared the electric car was looked at again and it was in 1976 the US Congress passed the Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Research, Development, and Demonstration Act of 1976, which authorised the Energy Department to support research and development in electric and hybrid vehicles. We had gone to the moon and back but could not manage to take forward an invention that would be far better for our environment. It took the announcement in 2006 that Tesla Motors would start producing a luxury electric sports car to get the general public really interested.
The changes in society are exponential and we can only get more advanced and quicker than ever before. However, this has come at a price that we now have to pay. We have used and abused our home planet to such an extent that we risk our own survival, we know better now. Our innovations from now on have to take into account this planet that has given us everything, we have to conserve and nurture it.
So how do we do that?
We now have the capability to figure out things that before baffled us and we also took for granted. If we learn about how natures connections work, how to create without destroying, how to be sustainable by working with our planet instead of abusing it for everything it’s got we can have a mutual symbiotic relationship where we create and develop in mutual co-existence with our nature and all of her creatures. Nature is a perfect system, so by understanding how it creates from seed to tree, from fetus to adult, from a speck of dust to the wonders that we see every day, we can further propel our society and unlock our true nature.
Imagine where we will be in another 100 years.
