The perpetual motion machine is a myth.
Not according to my father.
When I was young, my father would have one too many on a Friday night and ramble on about inert gas and iron filings, in a pressurized steal/iron container which was pressure sealed to create a new power source which could run machines forever.
As a young boy, with his mother looking on and his sister and step-sisters in bed, I felt privileged and dangerously close to a father who seemed surprisingly passionate and creative (at least as a storyteller).
And thank god for my mother.
So I have an inside look about such notions.
If you feel keen, please watch the vid from Ted Talk.
So, maybe I tricked you here. But the point is that some people believe like my father that the earth is in perpetual motion for resources like water.
I am a believer in respecting authority like my father, but who respects the earth enough to prevent harm to her from our own hands. Instead of “Guardians Of The Galaxy”, I propose Guardians Of Earth from you know who.
I’m still working on my carbon footprint too!
