NEWSLETTER – JULY 2020
A World Without Money
The road to life begins at the threshold of perception.
Issue No 2 | July 2020
About changing and being late…
Last month I speculated that the collapse could come as early as August 15, 2020. I chose this date primarily because of the extremely high temperatures in the Arctic, but also because I wanted people to realize that the collapse could come very soon and therefore, we need to plan for it now.
I cannot get this message out by then, however. I’ve been trying but am not skilled in this department. What I do best is see the vision. You know the old saying “Young men see dreams and old men see visions”. That’s me. I see visions. That’s what I do. I’m supposed to be retired. I’m good for writing a few stories and maybe putting a newsletter out, but other than that I’m not the person for this job.
I’ve changed this Plan of AWWM (A World Without Money) significantly in the last month, dividing it into Phases I and II and changing the website accordingly. I’ve also worked extensively on the Law of Life story. Additionally, I’ve loaded some older media under the media menu, including the second edition of the Road to Life Plan on 9 mp3 audio files.

Money has caused us to spread the concrete jungle all over the world.
Feature Article: What we can assume
Since the beginning of civilization, wealth has ruled. The growth of technology coupled with the addition of four billion people since 1971, however, has altered the course of this rule. Now this generations’ wealthy leaders have been left holding a bag of mistakes and I don’t think they know what to do. The environmental damage has gone too far.
We can assume they’ve placed their best research laboratories and scientists onto finding the solutions. We can assume that they’ve overturned every stone to find humanity’s road to life. And we can also assume that they’ve not found it. They’re essentially stuck because they feel a sense of responsibility, and don’t know how to tell humanity that they think it’s over. So to make up for it, they try to make our lives the best they can until collapse comes. How do they make our lives the best they can? Look around. The first thing you’ll see is that they’ve made marijuana legal. All my life I never thought I’d see that day.
When I say they think, I’m implying that they don’t know for a fact that we’re doomed, but think we are. Their science has told them. Just as many scientists, other experts and doomsayers often say that the evidence proves that there is no out. What humanity needs to know, however, is that there are two primary efforts that haven’t been tried yet. These efforts are so substantial that they could very well place us on the road to life.
The first effort lies in making a plan for how to survive the collapse of civilization. The second effort lies in giving humanity a chance to try. This website explains how.
What is our purpose?
Old whaling stories have told us that whales will send their largest to defend the herd. What makes us the largest is our human intelligence, which we know is far greater than any other life on Earth. Our intelligence gives us the power to either defend or destroy. It wouldn’t make sense, however, if our purpose were to destroy. That purpose would go against the survival of life itself, including our own. Our purpose, therefore, would be to watch over and protect life on Earth.
The Grand Coulee dam on the Columbia river went into operation in 1941 . It was built without a fish ladder and caused the extinction of several hundred species of fish including an enormous strain of Chinook Salmon, which ranged from 70 to 80 pounds and reached as high as 125 pounds. They were referred to as “June Hogs”.
How these two efforts work
This aworldwithoutmoney.org website divides these efforts into Phase I and Phase II.
Phase I tells how we can survive the collapse of civilization. Planning for collapse means that we’re planning for a time when money is no more. Which means that it’s not necessary to include money in our plans. When the complexities of money don’t have to be included then planning becomes simplified many times over. This simplification makes planning doable. The plans would tell us how to organize and work together. The idea is to conserve, utilize cool places, and reduce our human footprint so much that we’re as light as the collapse. About a month after Phase I, Phase II kicks in.
In Phase II Human Intelligence (HI) is combined with high speed processor technology, search engines, think tanks, and the internet to form a Collective Human Intelligence (CHI). This CHI has an intelligence that’s far greater than the world has ever known. It should be able to tell us how to restore the Earth and leave a sustainable future for the children of the world. Providing a sustainable future for the children is the measure that all plans must meet. In this way much argument is distilled by not planning for our own futures. We get to go along but ensuring the children’s future ensures the survival of humanity.
The importance of planning for collapse
Currently, our vision of the future is a vision of the coming collapse. Collapse is a vision of fear. If we knew that we could survive, however, then our vision of fear would turn into a vision of hope. Having the Phase I plan, therefore, is the most important, because when enough people see this vision, then humanity would have the option to transition instead of collapse.
Another reason planning to survive the collapse is so important is because it allows us to get a plan for survival made ASAP. The earliest predictions for the collapse of civilization are the end of this summer 2020. The longer we go without a plan the more risk we will take and the more worry we will carry.
Humanity could have professional help
Almost 60 percent of the world is active on the internet. That’s 4.7 billion people. 1/10,000th of 4.7 billion is 470,000 people. If each person chipped in $10, we’d have almost a half a billion dollars to begin. There are many large firms that would eagerly take on this project because for one thing, most of this work could be done from home. Once this idea hits the professional world, whichever firm gets the contract for framing humanity’s platform, their stock will go up a hundred fold in a fortnight. Mark my words!
Hiring a firm could help us get our new future started fast by building the framework for us. A frame could give us a place to meet. It could give us the beginning of humanity’s platform.
The influence of a poison
Our world’s current future is unsustainable, which means that probably within the next five to twenty years everyone on Earth will be dead because of the rising heat. This is an issue of such importance that our natural primal instinct to survive should kick in and compel us to prioritize our survival above everything else. Yet our instinct to survive is not kicking in. We’re not prioritizing our survival. Instead, we prioritize the needs of money. The solutions to this crisis are decided according to cost, who will pay, who will manage the contract, and how well the solution will fit into the economy.
Our instinct to survive isn’t kicking in. We’re not behaving like we normally should. It’s as though we’ve come under the influence of a poison.
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.” – Charles Darwin
