The Energy Economy

of Frater Ponderator

 

Intro:

 

    With the failing hollow Federal Reserve note, many people are starting to finally learn of the deceptive practices of this private institution.  Even non-economists are getting their long overdue basic training in economics.  They are assailed by many “professionals” or “experts” offering their solutions, from disbanding the federal reserve, re-implementation of the Gold Standard, to a simple faith based money system.

     This website acknowledges these concerns and “solutions” but asserts that they do not penetrate deep enough to a final solution.  It is the goal of this website to present one possible “final solution”, never before presented.   This entire proposed system is explained in detail in Frater Ponderator's FREE work: “Individualism – Government by We the People”.

 

     Following is a brief synopsis of the position held by this website before continuing in detail.  This site believes that The Federal Reserve should never have been allowed to exist and needs removed without delay, accordingly, returning to the population all funds charged by the unconstitutional interest they charged on every dollar lent since 1913.    

Secondly, there are some that speak of a "resource economy" which is highly dangerous. In order to operate such a system a department would have to be erected to "ration" out the resources to individuals. These ration amount certificates are no different than currency, and the department would become nothing more than Pharaoh and his grain Silos. Swiftly the people would be back under the foot of Tyranny.

     Thirdly, even though the gold standard is better than the federal reserve, the Gold Standard is NOT the final answer.  1. Institutions with gold will support this alternative, for they will gain in power with its implementation. Furthermore, it is speculated that fort knox may have been secretly emptied or confiscated, thus opening possibly avenues of war, when demanding the return of U.S. gold.  (for more detail on this research the findings of Ronald Reagan’s Gold Commission).   Finally, why do people acknowledge gold as being worth something, when it cannot be eaten or burned, or made into any useful object?  Because it is Simply a representation of Concrete Work Energy.  Therefore, it is merely a stepping stone to an even higher system of representation of Energy that does not have gold's particular biases and limitations.

     Last, a faith based money system does work, because ALL money systems, whether backed or not, are faith based systems.  However, it too has limitations even when backed by nothing.  One of those limitations is monitoring the amount of money in circulation, and its inability to accurately represent true value.  (more on this shortly).  It is more versatile than a gold standard, and worked well as the Colonial Scripts, Lincoln's Green Backs, and other notes, but nevertheless, it is not the final solution either. 

 

What shall next be presented is a system based entirely upon energy. But first, here are a few examples of how wasteful our present system is in relation to energy. This will prime the mind to the basic perception of energy flow in common transactions.

.

WASTE

.

Presenting a clearer idea on pointless waste created by usury and fractional reserve lending, realize:

1.  $211 Billion (and growing) of US tax money goes towards just interest on the national debt every year.  This is equal to 2,343 TeraWatt-hours of power, which is 88% of the World Wide Nuclear power generated in the Entire Year of 2006.

2.  The national average mortgage payment is about $1600 per month with roughly 22 million US mortgages (now, possibly 44 million) at 6% interest over 22.5 years (the average of 30 year and 15 year mortgages), totaling 35.2 billion dollars per month, of which 42% is purely interest (the average interest of 30 year and 15 year mortgages).  This equals over 14.8 billion dollars per month in interest alone for just the mortgage industry.  In light of the Individualistic energy values, this would be 164.4 million megawatt-hours of electricity per month. This is over forty one times the electricity produced by the Hoover dam all year.  Now imagine all the other areas where usury applies, personal loans, business loans, automobile loans, credit cards etc.  All loaned on fractional reserve making profit on non-existent money at the hard labor expense of the greater population. 

But this is not the extent of the waste of usury.  Of the 5.3 million outstanding mortgages, 1.7 Million of them now face foreclosure, that is about one out of every three mortgage loans ending in a homeless individual or family, who most likely spent many years making payments.  All of that money is lost, wasted, or as the Individualists describe it,  "stolen".  Same with the 1.3 Million auto repossessions on average auto loans of $23,800, or about 6% of every auto loan.  Entire markets of need suppliers spring up around foreclosure and repossession, which themselves use energy, thus are an energy cost on wasted energy – this is utterly intolerable to the Individualist and is still not the full extent of the waste.  To illustrate:

     A bank loans to a buyer on fractional reserve for a $100,000 house for 30 years at 6%.  Because of 10% fractional reserve, the bank owns this house for a mere $10,000 The buyer spends 10 years paying $1,000 monthly payments adding up to $120,000.  This is $20,000 more than the cost of the home, and 12 times more than what the bank paid for it.  However on paper it will show the buyer still owing around $52,000.  His employing corporation happens to cut jobs to utilize exploited oversea labor, unemployed, and without knowledge of self sustenance, the buyer can no longer make the payment on the house which should already be his.  The bank gleefully forecloses, taking the house and leaving the man with nothing, but a loss of ten years of his life and $120,000, an enormous waste of energy (at least 1,300 megawatt hours, enough electricity for over 300 people for an entire year).  The bank has gained $110,000 plus a $100,000 home to use again in the same scam.  Thus is the case for 1 out of every 3 mortgages and one origin of the tremendous profits written off as "loss" by the banking industry.  Fractional reserve, usury and privatized banking are therefore cast out with great contempt from the Individualistic society.

If all money is a representation of concrete work energy, as one can see, Usury and fractional reserve lending are In Fact, the fabrication of energy itself. They therefore violate the very Laws of Physics - for energy cannot be created! The Old System is thus unnatural to the core and doomed to failure thereby.

Realize, nearly all of this energy is Human Work Energy. If one imagines a world without usury and fractional reserve lending, in light of the energy waste described above, one can clearly see a world with drastically less demand for human work energy.  This directly translates into more time and energy for each individual.  With this surplus of time and energy they can spend it where it has always belonged, on themselves.  Thus they have the time and energy to pursue the development of their mind, body and spirit, resulting in a society of enlightened individuals.  And a society of enlightened individuals will only increase in efficiency and wisdom, eventually culminating to perfect peace.

These are just a few of the many illustrations of the sickening waste presented and discussed in detail in the FREE book "Individualism - Government by We the People" it is in your interest to fully understand them, you will certainly be appalled.

The Energy Theory of Value

of

Frater Ponderator

    .

Just as Gold represents concrete work energy, so too shall this system represent concrete energy, yet in the most flexible way possible. Waste will be impossible to hide, unlike past systems.

.

     Value is in the eye of the beholder.  A ton of gold, or the world's fastest computer, each "worth" millions to many, mean very little to the ascetic.  However the book printed upon 3 dollars of paper may be worth millions to him and nothing to others.  Knowledge could be said to be more valuable because unlike gold, it is never lost unless it is not shared.  It is the wealth that can be distributed without loss to he who gives.  However in a material world one must deal with finite material things thus a system to fairly achieve that distribution must be wrought.   (fairly is NOT synonymous with equally) The Individualists believe that simplicity is the strongest system, thus all value, use-value, exchange-value, worth, price must be reduced to a simple system.

   Apart from Price, which is desire of profit and even feelings of entitlement, (what one feels like one deserves for the effort applied) there exists True Value.  True Value is beyond the feelings and desires of man.  It is in the realm of pure energy.  For any one item, X amount of energy was applied to extract, refine and transport the resources.  Y amount of energy was applied to design it, Z amount was applied to create it and distribute it to the end user.  Thus the True Value is the sum total of the exact time and energy utilized to manifest that item in its present form, composition, and location.  The True Value does not compensate for inefficiency of the crafter, or any inefficiency along the system.  Thus something completely useless could have a tremendous True Value, like many present day products.  Gasoline being one of them, if the costs of war over oil was added into the price, we would most likely be paying over ten dollars per gallon.

     True Worth unveils the True level of mastery of the craftsman (or production method).  True worth is a comparison between the True Value of two (or more) things over their respective times.  The lowest true value is considered "one" and the higher becomes a percentage of that.  These two values are then divided by their times to yield true worth.  For example:

 

Two souls, both create the exact same object of exact quality etc. save the one took twice the energy and twice the time to produce it.   Soul A's energy efficiency would be one while soul B's use of twice the energy would be 1/2.  Thus soul A's True Worth is: 1e/1t = 1.  Compared to soul B's True Worth of 0.5e/2t = 0.25.  Thus soul B's item is truly worth only a quarter of soul A's item even though the items are exactly the same.

 

     True Worth reflects the degree of wisdom as efficiency.  Yet it will never determine practical worth to an individual which is a judgement solely in the mind of that individual.  Furthermore, it does not reflect the emotion which the item was wrought in be it Love, Fear, War, Peace etc.

 

     To build a system of this nature from scratch would not be so challenging.  To implement the system into another system already working is slightly more challenging.  Adhering strictly to the above definitions one must first know all energy consumption beginning at the raw resources.  Each human and machine used to mine uses X amount of energy over Y amount of time per volume of resources produced.  The machine itself was built from raw materials which were refined, shaped into the machine and shipped, thus its True Value must also be divided amongst the volume it produces.  Even the train transporting these goods has very high true value that must be considered.

     If implemented from scratch the energy of extraction of resources would be divided by the produced volume.  Thus different iron ore mines would have different true values for their products simply because of differences in digging difficulty through different rock hardness, let alone different choices in equipment, even though the end product is simply iron in both cases.  The product's total energy of creation would be stamped upon it and registered.  When transported, an additional stamp would be placed adding a calculated portion of the true value of the transporting vehicle and amount of fuel used upon arriving at its destination.  When fashioned into a shape an additional stamp is added recording the amount of the plant's consumption of time and energy used in shaping the item along with a portion of the plant's true vale.  A final stamp is placed recording fuel consumption and a portion of the true value of the final distribution vehicle upon arrival at its final destination.

     The end result is a time and energy breakdown on the side of a product that is no different than the nutritional breakdown on the side of food packages and just as simple to implement.  It would label the raw ingredients, and the time and energy consumption of each stage, the total being its True Value.  All the plants, farms, mines and mills etc. would have to include their registered number so that consumers can look into them if desired, assisting consumers to be aware of the relative efficiency of each plant, farm, mill, mine etc.  This system would allow consumers to make wiser comparisons of items clearly seeing their True Worth.

     The initial challenge is the assessment taken to implement the system.  Once it is implemented it gets progressively more accurate as each manufacturer beings purchasing machines that already have an accurate True Value stamped upon them making its division amongst the products created by or with it that much easier.  The division of the True Value of a machine into the production must be exactly the same throughout the society.  The suggested time is 365 days.  For a simple example: If a machine has a true value of fifty units divided over fifty years its addition to a product which took a year to build was 1 unit.  If a machine with a true value of one unit builds the same product in the same year its added value is also one.  But if the standard division was one year (365 days) the first machine would have to add fifty units to the product clearly showing its possible inefficiency allowing the customers to then research this machine by following the plant registration number and determining if there is some valid reason.  In short it eliminates concealing inefficiency.

     This system of True Value and Worth does nothing directly to the price which a manufacture can place.  It simply allows greater energy consciousness to the entire society permitting clearer discernment as to what are wise alternatives.  This would eventually cause inefficient systems to either evolve or die out.  This system is made stronger by the implementation of the GEP, which would constantly evaluate manufacturers for accurate energy assessments.

     To keep fools from raising prices because they know an energy conscious society will purchase their energy efficient product, another standardization is made.  It is the minimum hourly wage converted to an estimated consumption of energy.  This value is created and updated yearly by the GEP.  It also has nothing to do with price, but simply gives consumers another benchmark to judge price on the basis of energy converted to average man hours.  For example, if one was told that a product took 8 average man-hours to build, he would immediately have an idea of the worth of the product in relation to his own individual output per hour and his own personal judgement of himself as average, above or below.  Normally, expended human work energy is an ambiguous and rough determination.  With the mechanism described below it becomes a much more "real" value. 

 

     This Minimum wage value is determined as the average amount of calories burned by the average worker in the average occupation plus all daily needs:

1.  At rest the average body burns about 11 calories per pound per day so that a 155 lb. man burns 1,705 kcal.  During light work the same will burn roughly an additional 245 calories per hour or 1960 calories per 8 hr day, plus the 1,705 just to keep the body running, yields 3,665 kcalories or 14,535 BTU just to repay the man the work energy he expended. 

2.  The average distance traveled per day is 30 miles, most of this is in commute to work.   Thus an additional 2 gallons of gas at 15m/gal yields 227,000 BTU 

3.  The average daily electricity he will use is 9.6kWh or 32,757 BTU

4.  The average daily heat is 75 kWh or 255,911 BTU

5.  Depending on the various systems for water retrieval and wastes removal it is assumed an addition $1.11/day to accomplish these tasks or 42,252 BTU*

6.  His communication with phone and Internet are $3/day or 113,738 BTU*

7.  A 100,000 dollar home over 30 years approximately $33.33/day or 1,263,629 BTU*   (A mere 346,143 BTU without interest)

* Based on $0.09 per kWh

** Does not include a vehicle payment

 

     Thus 1,949,822 BTU per day or 243,728 BTU per hour is the minimum wage.  This is the bare minimum energy an average individual utilizes daily, therefore needs to be compensated this amount to maintain equilibrium.  For additional perspective this value is shown below converted into the equal amount in other energy forms and the price in that form:  (note: federal minimum wage is 5.85 now, to increase to 6.55 7/24/08)

 

1.  Electricity: 71.43kWh @ $0.09kWh or $6.43 2. Corn (&cob): 614 lbs  {$20.83} 3.  Soy:  33.88 lbs {$4.23} 4. Sunflower seeds: 24.41 lbs. {$2.93} 5. Ethanol: 3.17 gal {$8.70} 6.  Gas: 2.15 gal, {$6.42} 7. Soy derived diesel: 1.86 gal {$5.77} 8. Sunflower derived diesel: 1.87 gal {$4.62}

One can clearly see that corn is an anomalous figure.  The average above, including corn, is $7.49.  Without corn, $5.59.  The average between these figures: $6.54.  Almost exactly what it is to soon be.  So it can be seen, that to equate everything to energy would not change the current system dramatically.  It will simply give much greater detail and meaning to a “wage” and a “value”, etc, making the flow of energy, literally, visible.

     Without any system to convert a True Value amount of energy into a relative price, a consumer is simply left with a true worth comparison as described above.  Thus the individual who creates an energy efficient product with a capitalizing mindset realizes this society will magnetize to his product because its true worth is far better than similar items.  He uses this to his advantage and raises the price.  This is not to say that there is anything wrong with this.  It is simply saying that the consumer is at a disadvantage because there are no further benchmarks to judge the final price and gain insight into the demeanor of the manufacturer, such as if he is over charging or fair.  With this minimum wage value the energy value of the product can be directly converted into a dollar figure thus exposing the approximate markup of the manufacture.  Assisting the consumer in his final decision.

     This breakdown also shows where efficiency can be increased in society as a whole as it reflects the average individual consumption.  One can see above that simply the removal of mortgage interest alone eliminates 917,486 BTU per day per individual.  The implementation of self-sufficiency will further decrease this consumption.  Furthermore this value allows the labor of men to be converted into an approximate True Value to be divided over their products produced enhancing the accuracy of True Worth.

     As can be seen in all of the above prices for the exact same amount of energy in different forms, they all have a different price.  One would expect differences due to the application of energies such as Food Energy, Motive Energy, or Raw Electrical Energy, but each of these groupings should be similar, yet they are not.   This allows it to be clearly seen which type of energy is cumbersome to produce and which system of conversion to energy is less efficient than another clearly delineating to the people what systems need to be improved.

     With the energy efficiencies of fuel production able to be compared to price, people will begin to question why should they pay more for the exact same amount of energy, causing expensive fuels to either refine their efficiency methods or phase out.  The prices of all fuels will reflect a True Worth value in addition to their Fuel Energy value both in addition to price.  This is where waste will clearly be seen.  It is possible that the true worth (the amount of energy taken to create and move the product) will be far greater than the energy contained in the product.  Simply, it will be like spending two dollars to buy a dollar.  With an energy conscious society, even if the price is low, negative products as these will soon be abandoned or forced to increase efficiency.

.

 THE ENERGY STANDARD

.

     The Individualists implement one final system to galvanize the energy awareness of their society: The implementation of the Energy standard.  No different than what the gold standard was, the energy standard allows one at any time to trade in issued certificates for real energy, either Food Energy, Motive Energy, or Raw Electrical Energy at a Populus Resource Reserve or use them as currency at any Populus facility.  This allows the self-sufficient to trade in crops, self made fuels, surplus electric from wind and water turbines and even labor to fill the voids in their environment.  With bills/notes as Energy Certificates, the society becomes further energy conscious being that its bills and trade constantly refer the mind back to energy efficiency. 

     The Individualists do not arbitrarily print their certificates like the hollow systems of today.  Aside from the energy created by Populus facilities and stored as reserves.  They issue one registered certificate for each real trade.  The entire transaction recorded in detail and added to the reserve.  For instance, if a man trades in a fifty-five gallon drum of diesel containing approximately X Btu of energy, he is issued a certificate(s) for Y, and the amount of diesel is sent to the reserves and duly recorded.  When certificates are used at a Populus facility they are then registered as "expended" and may be destroyed to prevent human temptation to corrupt the system if seen fit.  For simple example, the above man's diesel had 4 units of energy (e).  After the conversion he was issued a certificate for 1e.  Therefore the reserve now has 4e.  This man then uses a Populus fabrication shop spending his 1e there.  The fabrication shop physically used 1e of electricity to power his activity.  Thus the 1e is registered as expended.  The reserve now has 3e and 1e of disbanded currency.

   Populus issued certificates are accepted as hard currency at any Populus facility.  As the system gains in use, individuals and private businesses will also begin to use them and the old hollow currency will phase out.  The certificates issued are based on raw electrical energy.  Any item traded for a certificate is reduced to it simplest form by the functions listed below and issued a certificate for that amount in energy.  For example:

     A man wishes to trade 1 lb of soy for certificates. 1 lb of soy is know to contain V amount of Vital energy and yield W amount of fuel with the loss of X amount in conversion, that fuel yields Y amount in raw electric at the cost of Z amount in conversion.  Therefore V - W - X - Y - Z = the energy value of the certificate issued.  The GEP will establish an old market conversion value for raw energy until the old market is phased out.  This is the Standard Energy Value (SEV), this value links the Individualistic system to the old market. For example $0.09/kWh, a common price of electricity.  This value will be assessed each year and as efficiency increases this figure will drop.  Assisting the phasing out of the old system and increasing the accuracy and fairness of the functions below, as some only exist because the old market still exists.  As ideally the Populus reserve attempts to see only energy and efficiency not human desire of entitlement for expended effort (price).

 

     The Populus Reserve recognizes three tiers of energy, Vital (food), Fuel and Raw.  Food being the most complex and raw being pure electricity.  When trading, one does not have to trade for a certificate, one can trade for real items by following the functions below, such as corn for soy, diesel for corn etc.  Below are examples of the Energy tier conversions:

1.  Food to food = 1a: (the lesser of Va/Vb and Fa/Fb) b where 'a' is the food to be traded to the reserve and 'b' is the food received.  V is the registered food energy value per amount and F being the registered fuel yield of that particular food.  The reason why it is the lesser of the two is so that one cannot trade a food that has a low fuel energy yield for a food with a higher one thus profiting even if they have identical food energy values.  For example, 1lb of corn has 397 Food BTUs and yields 4,125 Fuel BTUs (0.05 gal of ethanol).  1lb of soy has 7,194 Food BTUs and yields 3,054 Fuel BTUs (0.02 gallon of biodiesel).  If one came in with a pound of soy and traded it for an equal food energy amount with corn, one would get 18.12 pounds of corn which could yield 74,745 BTUs in fuel energy (nearly a gallon of ethanol), which is nearly 25 times the fuel yield of the pound of soy traded.

 

2.  Food to Fuel = The registered fuel yield of that particular food less the registered Conversion Efficiency Coefficient (CEC) of that conversion (such as soy to diesel, there is energy lost in conversion)

 

3.  Fuel to Food = simply Btu value to Btu value

 

4. Fuel to Fuel = ideally this would be simply Btu value to Btu value, for one type of fuel Btu generates no more electricity or motive energy than another does.  Some simply take up more or less space per Btu which is actually an inefficiency, such as ethanol which takes up nearly twice the space as biodiesel for the exact same amount of energy and is twice as expensive.  One would think that for such an inefficiency it would be half as expensive.  Therefore to keep the Populus reserve free from illogical corruption of this sort until the old market dies out the conversion must be 1a: (the lesser of Fa/Fb and Ma/Mb) b where 'a' is the fuel to be traded to the reserve and 'b' is the fuel received.  F is the registered fuel energy value per amount and M being the registered current market value of that particular fuel.  The reason why it is the lesser of the two is so that one cannot trade a fuel that has a low market price for a fuel with a higher one thus profiting even if they have identical fuel energy values.  For example one could trade 1 gal of gas worth $2.99 for 1.47 gal of ethanol which commands a price of $4.05 for the exact same amount of energy (113,500 Btu).

 

5.  Raw to fuel = ideally this would be Btu for Btu.  But, until phase out this function is used: 1a: (the lesser of Ra/Fb and Ma/Mb) b where 'a' is the raw energy to be traded to the reserve and 'b' is the fuel received. R is the Standard Energy Value of raw electricity (SEV) F is the registered fuel energy value per amount and M being the registered current market values.  The reason why it is the lesser of the two is so that one cannot trade electricity that has a low market price for a fuel with a higher one thus profiting even if they have identical energy values.

 

6. Fuel to Raw = registered Btu content of fuel less standard fuel CEC.

 

     At first glance at these conversions, all trade seems to be had at a loss to the individual, as with any pawn shop, but the loss is illusory because the gain goes to the reserve, which is the people, which includes that individual.  One gives up some energy in the trade for the convenience, to the benefit of society.

     The old market system charges others for the amount of difficulty they experience creating their product.  Effort, by the Individualist definition, is simply inefficiency.  One should not be charged for the inefficiency of others, thus rewarding the most inefficient.  By phasing this old market out all energy will have the same value, the currency then becomes energy itself.  Therefore profit becomes a function of efficiency.  For example if one makes a gallon of diesel containing X Btu, it will only trade for that amount regardless of the time and energy one put into it.  The man making that same gallon in half the time and resources therefore profits.  A further example is the homebuilder.  Each piece used to build the home, down to the simplest nail will have a true value.  All his men will work an exact time, the house would have a true value equal to the sum total of all these values.  Ideally the home is only worth this amount, thus the faster this homebuilder builds these homes, therein lies his profit.  This system allows for no making of profit out of nothing.  Only efficiency of technique will afford profit.  Soon profit will be found in growing energy, gathering it from wind and water, and efficient conversion of that energy.  Many fuels and fuel using devises will phase out along with the old hollow market system, as fully electric devises are found most efficient.  

 

     Below are the forms taken by the Populus Reserve Certificates and their comparisons to present currency. The SEV value used as example in the below certificate comparisons will be 0.09/kWh. 

Hnote = 1 hectoWatt-hour or 341 Btu Similar to a penny

H5      = 5 hectoWatt-hours or 1,705 Btu Similar to a Nickel

Mnote = 1 megacalorie (3,965 Btu) Similar to a dime

M10    = 10 megacalories (39,656 Btu) Similar to a $1

M20    = 20 megacalories (79,312 Btu) Similar to a $2

M50    = 50 megacalories (198,250 Btu) Similar to a $5

M100  = 100 megacalories (396,566 Btu) Similar to a $10

M200  = 200 megacalories (793,132 Btu) Similar to a $20

M500  = 500 megacalories (1,982,500 Btu) Similar to a $50

Gnote  = 1 gigacalorie or 3,965,666 Btu Similar $100 (actually $104.60)

 

     The Individualists believe that this system allows the populace to clearly see the flow of energy, in single items, entire procedures and the whole of society.  Quickly exposing each and every inefficiency as well as their remedies with endless insights.   Causing the noise of the friction of this current market, its effort, to be alleviated.  The pace of life consequently will slow and relax as the race in waste and haste to nowhere is stopped, plummeting consumption to less than half of its present value and returning peace, harmony, reason and sanity to man.

Some Rough Figures

 

- Corn: $1.90/ bushel at 56 Pounds yields 3 gallons of ethanol.

- Ethanol yields 77,000 BTUs/gal sells at $2.75 / gal or 28,000 Btu/dollar.

- As food one bushel (70 ears) corn yields 22,232 food Btu (5606kcal) Less than 3 days of food energy.

  (Due to inedible cob, about 45% of total ear mass.)

- Gasoline yields 113,500 BTUs/gal sells at $2.99 / gal or 37,960 Btu/dollar.

- Peanuts:  $4.00 for 1/100th ton (20lbs) yields 9.6 lbs. oil 7.7 lbs. gal (1.25 gal)

- PeaDesiel yields 130,900 Btu/gal sells at $3.43 / gal or 38,163 Btu/dollar

- As food 20lbs yields 207,065 food Btu (52,210 kcal) about 26 days of food energy.

- Soy: $7.50/ bushel at 60lbs yields 10.8 lbs. oil (1.40 gal)

* The above biodiesel prices were figured using  $0.0925/lb for the value of meal remaining after extraction.  Plus an additional dollar per gallon as $0.80/gal for processing and $0.20/gal profit.

Natural oils that may be used as base oils for fuels include canola oil, castor oil, corn oil, cottonseed oil, crambe oil, hemp oil, jojoba oil, linseed oil, meadowfoam oil, oiticica oil, olive oil, peanut oil, rapeseed oil, sesame oil, soybean oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, tung oil etc.   Allowing many diverse region types to be cultivated for renewable fuels.

The Individualistic Understanding of Economics

.

     A question which arises when evaluating economic systems is, "which one is more successful?"  To answer that question the idea of success must be defined apart from the efficiency of the system which is merely an attribute which defines no end goal of the society.  Is success; quantity and/or quality of material goods, constant growth of the system, stability of the system, military power, wisdom and/or happiness of the people, complexity, or simplicity, etc.?  Just what is the end goal?

 

- Economy is from the Greek words oikos (house) and nomos (to manage), thus "house management."

Some accepted definitions of economy are:

1.  The careful or thrifty use or management of resources, as of income materials or labor. – American Heritage 

2. The system of production, distribution and consumption ­– cognitive science laboratory at Princeton university

3.  The state of a country or region in terms of the production and consumption of goods and services.

Economics is the study of this state and system defined as: 

1.  "The practical science of production and distribution of wealth", wealth being defined as "the stock of useful things"  - John Stuart Mill

2.  "The science which studies human behavior as a relationship between ends and scarce means which have alternative uses."   - Lionel Robbins

 

     The Individualist believes that the most noble "end" a human can seek is the perfection of mind body and spirit, all other "ends" are deviations from this path and wastes of time and energy to varying degrees.  This is the Individualistic concept of economic success which consequently alters many economic mechanisms of the present world, rendering most of them useless if not pointless, as they do not contribute to this "successful end".

     Economy began simply as self-subsistence.  Such as simply producing food, water and shelter and distributing it to only oneself.  Soon this grew to distribution amongst the people of the group, then evolved to Macro subsistence, even larger scale tasks performed by the few for the many with knowledge that they withheld from their brethren (by accident or purposefully) such as large scale farming. With the handing over of personal responsibilities to others an unnecessary complexity of economics is produced and a cycle of malignant growth is initiated.  Soon services need rendered for the myriad of tasks neglected because of the one unnaturally doing things for the many has substantially less time to do those things he should be doing for himself.  The exact same happens to all who become involved, such as those rendering the services now need services for tasks they too have neglected.  Thus this cycle of nonsense grows only thickening ignorance amongst the people and further specializing their abilities and awareness, removing true independence by increasing dependency upon others. 

     As soon as "value" begins being placed on these tasks and services a whole new dimension of perversion is born.  The initial over complexity may still have been being performed in a compassionate manner.  Yet with value comes corruption as time is initially of equal value to all, hence the granter of services or macro-supplier raises prices so that they have more free time.  This forces the people dependent on that good or service to have less time because they now have to work more.  Therefore in the simplest state all beings have exactly the same spare time, when this complexity is erected time becomes a fluid commodity which flows from the many to the few. Thus whether they know it or not, those supplying a good or service upon which others have allowed themselves to depend upon, control those people.  Soon this force is realized by some, and inequity enters man as he begins to prey upon his fellow brothers' trust and ignorance and the true "need supplier" is born.  Prices are raised, lies are told for their reasoning. Deception in endless facets arises such as Goods and services that are not needed but the people are convinced in every way to utilize them, thus distorting their concept of essentials and simplicity, allowing further complexity which is by its nature a proportionate veil for deception.   This cycle continues growth in complexity, specialization, alienation, ignorance, dependence, and deception creating distrust amongst the brotherhood of man and dividing them against each other in endless ways while taking time from the many and giving it to the few magnifying all negative emotions.  As time is essential for happiness thus those with less time, begin to experience negative feelings.  Before long these bottom end users, miserable and timeless, begin to desperately seek time by the same methods albeit more hasteful through severe lack of time, thus resulting in inferior solutions.  Such as a prostitute or drug dealer.  Both operating on capitalistic principles, with the value of their gain exceeding that of the expenditures.  Thus, the most effective method becomes adopted. The easiest being simply theft, little work (time and energy)for exactly what is needed, the same practice that occurs constantly in modern business and government.  Soon even Law is used to gain time or money, and thus, the circle of corruption is complete.

     This is the formula of the need suppliers, the intermediate between private wealth and public interest, either real or synthetically generated.  This is where the terrible relationship between the banks and businesses come into play.  The majority of bottom end users are unable to do business with the merchants do to lack of time and money the system inflicts upon the masses.  Thus the merchants, hungry for more time and eager to exploit this massive resource of people, develop the banks so that they can "assist" the people in doing business.  The bank is really the only one doing business with the merchant, and simply enslaving the people for their "help".  To illustrate the point, the merchant seduces a soul into a material object (More often than not, a totally unnecessary item or service), this soul now needs money to quench this desire, the merchant's partner, or second face, the bank, lends a hand.  The "Loan" goes from the bank, right past the individual, to the merchant.  Thus, the bank directly pays the merchant to bait the people to enslave themselves to the bank who then also makes money off these already poor souls by usury increasing their desperation.  The bank thus becomes the controller of the work force crippling them even further by usury taking the last of their time and money.  Most likely the bank is a collection of wealth by a merchant or group of merchants to initiate this system of control.  Over time the bank becomes strictly oriented to these self initiated monetary feedback loops, growing exponentially in power and control.  Making bond slaves of the entire populace.

NOTE: {Usury is made illegal in the Individualistic society, as well as privatized banking.  The reason is because combined they are simply an exponential power generating machine turning the people's work energy into the privatized fortunes of others.  They exist only because people give them money.  All corporations place their capital into banks including income and payroll.  Citizens, as employees and customers, also place their savings into the bank.  Thus with this massive influx of funds, the bank increasingly gains in "loaning" power by fractional reserve, which requires the bank to only have a percentage, such as 10%, of the amount it loans in actual funds available.  The bank actually never pays out any significant amount:

1.  When the bank is required to pay employees "X" for their paycheck, many of these people place a large portion of that amount right back into the bank as their personal checking or savings, thus the bank has little net loss to its loaning power.  2.  The bank supposedly makes money off of investments into corporations. When this money is given to the corporation it goes right back into the bank, by it being deposited as working capital or by the corporation purchasing something, wherein the selling corporation takes this profit and places it in their bank.  Again, little initial loss to the banking industry, which then receives profit from the investment because of usury (a loan based on fractional reserve, thus profit is being made on 90% of non existent money). 3.  When a customer wants to buy from a corporation and gets a bank loan, the loan given to the corporation goes right back into the bank as that corporation deposits it as profit.  Thus again, little loss to the bank.  The bank then profits by usury on the loan to the customer (another hollow fractional reserve based loan), often at absurd degrees.  

     Thus the bank is the only one in the loop who truely profits and that profit is on 90% non-existent funds. The employees, who are also the customers (buying the products which they created), give hard work energy on both ends.  The corporations are an intrinsic part of the banking system with a symbiotic relationship, and at times are the creators of the bank to initiate this cycle (such as GMAC, General Motors Acceptance Corporation, a subsidiary of GM, if independent it would be the 8th largest US bank.  Ford Motor Credit would be the 10th largest US bank).  Viewed in this light, generalized, the people are working to create a product, and then paying a middleman to have the product which they created.  It is a pointless stumbling block.  Exploitation of man to the scandalous profit of the few by demanding more work energy than that which was given, and furthermore that which was given, upon which they make their demands, was only 10% real.   Therefore they demand re-payment on 90% of nothing! }

     The handing over of one's own responsibilities to others in even the smallest degree initiates this process of individual alienation leading to a lack of understanding of the mechanics of the entire unnecessary system as well as methods of self subsistence.  Subsequently breeding false convictions of how all things work together and the true purpose of life, leaving these individuals prey for wiser forces to take advantage of this ignorance ending in inescapable dependency.  To avoid this information asymmetry and its repercussions delineated above, the Individualists believe in all power to the individual bar none.  The single most important key to this is free unrestricted knowledge.  Thus, The Individualists erect The Library of Accredited Free Knowledge and Instruction which teaches all the people Freely.  Additionally vast improvements are made to the public education system of the minors.  All necessities of self sustenance are taught as well as free access granted to all knowledge possessed by all mankind collected and clearly cataloged by LAFKI.  With the masses enlightened, the cycle of dependency begins to reverse.

     The Individualistic society's priority is not monetary or material gain; it is intellectual gain, resulting in efficiency of every industry, orchestrating them toward one goal, the evolution of mankind.  Therefore, because its priorities are completely different from the pointless priorities of past systems, many laws of the dying world's economics do not apply. They are seen as incomplete and inferior distortions of truth, gross misconceptions which only serve to limit man.

     Such are the concepts of employment, economic growth, supply and demand, privatization and specialization all flawed concepts which limit man because they are a resultant of a system which has forfeited individual responsibility.   The initial creation of a macro supplier creates first privatization, then employment, then specialization, then a supply and a demand, then a monitoring of the cycle and forces implemented to achieve "economic growth" which is merely increased profit for the initiating macro suppliers at the expense of the masses.  

     Demand need not exist before supply, as humans can be convinced into a need. Supply and demand can only be considered true and natural laws when speaking of basic subsistence such as a fixed amount of people and a fixed amount of food which nature yielded that particular season.  They become merely quasi-laws in today's economic complexity because the demand (decisions of the people) can be artificially implemented by marketing propaganda, incentives and price altering.  Price itself is mistakenly looked at by some as a measure of relative scarcity, but withheld knowledge creates an illusion of scarcity when in fact there is plenty.  Thus the entire system is based on illusions, therefore any "economic analysis" is also illusory to varying degrees.  To maintain this faulty system it must be constantly monitored and meticulously altered by the proponents of the banks and the need suppliers so as not to allow its overdue collapse.  Production and prices are therefore set to limit the market and maintain animation of this long-dead machine for the gain of only the need suppliers, the very reason for the insanity of paying farmers to burn crops.  The control of these prices directly controls the people by controlling their decisions which are based on those prices.

    Unrestricted free knowledge makes one less susceptible to faulty elements of this system such as the need for employment.  Employment results in wages and unemployment.  Wages empower only the bank (as described earlier), which holds the payroll money of the merchant increasing its own loaning power. Unemployment is something to be feared only in societies whose people are so specialized that they are incompetent in all tasks but one. Thus they are incapable of surviving without the help of the system when their specialized task suddenly becomes obsolete, which is the unfortunate destiny of the majority of pointless tasks in today's insane world.  In the Individualistic society these problems do not exist because of the knowledge of self-subsistence.  One needs not to work for another because one is generating all of one's needs by oneself.  One works only by choice and interest, employment being sought and businesses being wrought because of the love of a particular thing, such as electronics, airplanes, engines etc. not for material gain out of desperation.  Knowledge alone negates the need for employment thus negating the need for unemployment welfare, which taxes society (the mechanics of this are explained in detail in the FREE book).

     Employers only encourage limitation in man by encouraging specialization of labor and cause it to become even more specialized by rewarding the individual with the higher output. The money paid out by the employer remains the same as his production efficiency increases because of increasing one workers wage while a less efficient worker is terminated to compensate.  This increases the strength of only the employer because of the greater efficiency had for the same cost, and weakens the masses because another is unemployed who is too specialized to sustain himself, thus taxes society to sustain him.

     Specialized labor further tends towards waste when a specialist has completed all tasks, he is then out of work.  Therefore either the employer will create unnecessary work to maintain this individual or the individual will initially never allow the work to be complete by slowing his pace, or will create faulty works in need of constant repair.  Thus the infamous slogan of materialistic waste is borne "Job Security" the direct result of specialized labor.  If none of this can be maintained the individual is laid off and without self-sufficiency, now taxes society (unemployment compensation).  Thus the supposed benefits gained through specialization are lost in its many tendencies towards waste.

     The specialist may be superior to all in just one task but is impotent in all others.  The well-rounded laborer is inferior in any one task but capable and aware of many.  The Individualist sees a virtue therein.  The sum total of all of these known tasks allows the practitioner insights and understandings, which will not appear in the strictly specialized individual, granting the potential for higher solutions.  The specialist in a meaningless task has a meaningless knowledge, useless in one's own personal evolution.  Thus, focus on simplifying tasks for less training time breeds deeper ignorance in the individual regardless of time saved in training which yields only profit to the company.  Specialists, no matter their degree of mastery, will never improve the quality or purpose of an object which was poorly engineered or conceived, it matters not how perfect the specialists craft and assemble to the plans, the product will simply be a rapid and efficiently produced piece of junk.  Many of today's products are examples of this, an endless sea of entirely meaningless, useless, unnecessary garbage contributing nothing to humanity, pushed upon them as a need, leading society further astray from their true priorities, while wasting the lives and minds of those who specialized to create them.

     The Individualist realizes that most normal human beings will inevitably find one particular task especially enjoyable, a love.  It is these paths which the Individualist is encouraged to pursue specialization in and none other.  Specialization pursued in love creates an Artist.  Hence both well-rounded understanding and artistic specialization are needed to keep an individual free from alienation to the endless methods of production. Creating high enthusiasm as a direct result of free unrestricted knowledge.  Production in the Individualistic society will therefore be controlled by the desire of an informed people, so high production will not be a relevant factor to measure the success of their system.  As focus upon production in terms of time neglects time used for more important things such as enlightenment of the individual.  High production of useless things is waste and failure, to the creator and to the society.  Most material goods of necessity are self-made by the knowledgeable Individualist, removing the need for many merchants, except for those few true lovers of a trade.  These are true Artists and not just in the business for the money and control it may provide.  All workers of the Individualistic society are capable of shifting to self-subsistence and creative pursuits at any time.  Therefore abundance does not cause unemployment in the Individualistic society as it does in the present world, it causes an influx of time to the entire populace resulting in additional inspiration and innovation from forces which will later be explained in detail.

For a detailed discussion on the varying definitions of different types of economies click here.

    

There is but one definition for Individualistic economics true throughout time:

1.  An economic system encouraging self production, stressing the meaningful purpose of all things created, and efficiency in that creation, where the amount of private land and size of private business is fairly regulated and a major portion of the means of production, distribution and trades are equally owned and governed by each citizen of the union whose idea of success is the attainment of the highest possible degree of perfection in mind, body and spirit in the life span allotted.

     This alternate concept of economic success prioritizing intellectual gain as opposed to material gain, leads to efficiency of every industry, honing them toward the evolution of mankind.  All deviations from this path are accordingly seen as wastes of time and energy, consequently rendering most of the present economic mechanisms pointless.  The unnecessary complexities of which were initially formed by handing over one's personal responsibilities to others initiating a cycle of malignant growth.  Self-sufficiency, the key to true freedom and growth, was lost.  Education was altered to make corporate tools instead of wise individuals.  Free unrestricted knowledge remedies all of these ailments creating an enlightened society, each contributing to all government and economic decisions.   This is ensured by erection of the Greater Eye of the Populus (GEP), a system of notification composed of the people keeping each individual informed and relaying their opinions and desires directly to the necessary department.  The result is a content, efficient society in harmony with each other and nature whose actions truly mirror the desires of its people. 

     The Individualist is an obvious adversary to the pointless machine of waste and consumption.  Its unhealthy fixation upon "economic growth" and "creating jobs" has become a madness.  A project funded by the people which creates 1000 "jobs" sends 1000 people into servitude for the machine and increases the waste and consumption proportionately (especially the profit of the banks as described earlier).  Far less money spent on teaching 1000 people self sufficiency frees them from the system and decreases its waste and consumption proportionately.  Allowing their work energy to be directed toward loftier goals such as refinement of self, acquisition and assimilation of knowledge and using both to aid mankind ( as opposed to fueling the wasteful profits of the few).  The old aphorism "give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime", takes on profound meaning here.  Without this knowledge of self-sustenance one's very life is in danger and one is forced to depend on another.  The perfect unbreakable chain for a slave. 

     The Individualist therefore becomes the demise of the need suppliers because he fulfills his own needs and takes all aspects of his life into his own hands naturally dissolving "the market", a loop composed of the people as end consumer as well as the exploited resource.  Taxed on both ends by a middleman who does nothing but waste energy.  Individualism establishes regulations keeping the size and influence of surviving private businesses in check by business ownership and employee responsibility laws coupled with 'large entity' and 'excess property' taxes. These cause any private entity which grows large to yield great returns to the people, who are the society upon which its existence depends.

     The native Americans had a simplistic society in harmony with creation, the Individualists recognize this important value but also recognize the power that technology has to assist mankind in evolution, if brought into the same scope.  As more people begin working strictly for them selves, production would slow yet result in efficiency.  Technological advances would increase in frequency and magnitude because of the great deal of time people would have to peacefully think deeply coupled with their highly advanced free education system.  Regularly working directly with earthly resources and waste, the society also becomes thoroughly energy conscious.  Resulting in efficiently created products which have a greater purpose, last longer, and are made of more friendly materials.  School education and products would be geared towards strongly supporting this independence. The Individualists establish a variety of Populus owned facilities, such as fabrication shops, mills, mines farms etc. to assist these ends, not to replace a private market, but simply to allow individuals access to something they may need.  The erection, disbandment and operation of these facilities are directly controlled by an annual consensus of the people.

Now that this basic premiss has been presented it is necessary to delve a little deeper into "Energy" and clearly define it so as to have no mistakes in erecting a system based upon it. "A solution is only as good as the definition of the problem". Many will assume that the following is trivial, that everyone already understands what energy is . . . Possibly true, however it must be related to "Wealth" in order to transform it into an element of economics. The following is therefore presented to show an often overlooked aspect of "wealth", and that is: Immaterial Wealth. It furthermore shows how all wealth is merely energy. Lastly, it explains some common sense terms in more detail with relation to the natural processes of the human mind, simply to illustrate why and how this system accelerates the evolution and fortifies the integrity of both the individual and the society. It is NOT explaining these simple terms assuming the reader doesn't know them.

INDIVIDUALISTIC WEALTH

 .

     There is individual wealth and omniwealth, that is, the sum total of all wealth.  A measurement of any thing changing throughout time must be taken at one moment in time, a snapshot true only for that moment.  The Individualists view wealth as such a changing body.  Therefore to measure it, it is analyzed at one moment in time and called Static Wealth.  Static wealth is the degree of the quality and quantity of both material and immaterial things accumulated by an entity.  It is "macrovalue".  Value is the degree of quality and quantity of both material and immaterial wealth contained in a single thing.  It is "microwealth".  As can be seen, the Individualists include immaterial things as a factor of wealth also, for they too have value.  Such as knowledge itself has a high value to the ascetic, and gold is worthless.   The value of use is incorporated into this definition by example of a shovel.  It is composed of material things organized into the specific shape for the specific task by knowledge alone, its immaterial component.  The degree of quality of the materials used, such as hardened steel, and quality of knowledge applied such as a rippled cutting edge to cut through roots, would both add value as opposed to a stick with a sharp rock tied to the end.

 

     Static Wealth possesses the following two major components which interact over time creating a compound mechanism that the Individualists call "Dynamic Wealth", which is the cause of all human actions.

1.  Material wealth is the degree of quantity and quality of material things.  Its foundation being natural resources, matter itself, the finest division of which is energy. 

2.  Immaterial wealth is the degree of quantity and quality of immaterial things.  Its foundation being knowledge, the finest division of which is consciousness.

 

     These two directly interact forming:  

1.  Products are the result of Knowledge applied to resources, it is static power, potential, capability

2.  Dynamic Power is the result of Knowledge applied to products to fulfill a goal.  Dynamic power consumes material wealth for motion. Thus a Need is the material wealth consumed by dynamic power creating voids, which are goals.  (Omniwealth, being it is the sum total of all wealth, also has consciousness, thus it can exert dynamic power also.  Such as a forest fire converting material wealth to motion, thus creating needs.  If it happens to consume one's home it creates a goal for that one, a new home.)

3.  Wisdom is the efficiency resultant of the frequency of the interplay of the two polarities of wealth, (material and immaterial).  Or more simply: knowledge that has been practiced to the point of clear understanding of its most efficient application.  Or knowledge that has been applied to the point of rectifying it to its most efficient application by identifying many negative vectors.

     In its broadest sense Zero wealth is the Void, no thing, material or immaterial.  In this massive void one has the ultimate goal.  The ultimate fulfilled goal is the ultimate infinite void filled with the ultimate infinite experience, which is the ultimate wealth, all things (Omniwealth).  The individual consciousness itself is the smallest portion of this wealth.  Incarnation grants the initial material wealth, the physical body.  The senses of the physical body begin to relay knowledge of the surrounding Omniwealth.  Knowledge (immaterial wealth) is experience, information received by the senses.

     The Individual consciousness is constantly organizing accumulated knowledge more efficiently with each new piece of knowledge acquired, this action is called Imagination.  Imagination is speculation by analysis and synthesis of current wealth, simply the movement of things into an order.  Its magnitude (number of permutations) is directly proportionate to the accumulated wealth.  Thus if one has experienced only a mouse and a leaf one can imagine all combinations of just those two, such as a fury leaf or a green mouse, but one could not imagine a bird, imagination is limited to experience, which is knowledge, which is wealth. Uncertainty is the variable, the forever unknown quantity due to infinity.  Such is the static measure of Omniwealth, thus uncertainty lay in all calculations.

     In this process of analytical organization the individual wealth is also constantly compared to Omniwealth.  Within this comparison degrees of harmony exist.  Harmony is an individual wealth equal to Omniwealth yet on a smaller scale.  Thus it resonates with it giving one insights into the nature of Omniwealth (All).  The Void (all things not yet possessed) becomes uniform when in harmony and thus exerts a uniform pull on the individual consciousness causing distinct desire to seemingly vanish.  Desire is a goal unaccomplished, (the force of attraction of a void).   A Goal is a missing aspect of wealth, a negative wealth, a void.  Out of harmony goals exert a pull to varying degrees based on the degree of discord. 

   A goal is selected to fulfill because of the speculated capabilities (products) its addition to wealth would grant.  Thus is manifested the relative potential power level of goals.  Potential power of a goal is a measure of the current "macrovalue" (static wealth) of the individual consciousness relative to the speculated size of Omniwealth (all things).  This individual macrovalue subtracted from the speculated size of Omniwealth leads to a proportionately sized goal (void), for one cannot have a goal bigger than the known universe. This is the Archgoal (The Void, all things not possessed).  The level of its potential power is speculated by the individual static wealth multiplied by the speculated size of the Archgoal. This goal shrinks in size with the accumulation of individual wealth. 

     An example is the tribe living on an island for centuries, thinking it is the totality of existence, content they understand all forces "in the universe" they are omnipotent on their island.  There are no goals left to fulfill, their individual wealth is equal to their speculated size of Omniwealth.  Until an advanced culture comes along taking them up in a plane and showing them that they live on a vast globe, which spins around a stupendously huge sun in an incomprehensibly immense universe.  Suddenly their proportionate wealth is profoundly altered, uncovering countless new goals and potential power.

     The Archgoal can be divided into an infinite system of fulfillment vectors.  Wisdom is what determines the efficiency of travel along vectors determined by understanding. Understanding is the knowledge of the nature of a thing.  Nature is a predicable/known action of a thing under the influence of specific forces.  Understanding plots the series of vectors to fulfill either one or all goals.  A Vector is a predetermined series of applications (products and dynamic power) supposed to end in a fulfilled goal.  Reason is a compound vector, the specific vector of sub-vectors to fulfill an over-goal orchestrated by understanding to avoid known negative vectors, (consequences, misunderstood nature).  Thus the wisest reason displays the greatest understanding by fulfilling the Archgoal in an instant. 

     The vector(s) are organized by feasibility and priority directly related to current static wealth and strength of desire (pull of void).  For without certain knowledge or resources, a vector may not be feasible until those items are accumulated, thus accumulating those objects necessary becomes a priority vector, thus all vectors together become a reason.  However even if a vector is unfeasible, if the desire is sufficient the path may still be chosen, yet it is most likely inefficient (unwise) and fraught with consequences (misunderstandings, negative vectors).   This assessment of the sequence of goals takes time, but its efficiency is not directly proportionate to time.  The complexity of the vector and current degree of understanding and wisdom yield a minimum and maximum solving time.  Thus is the origin of hastened, hesitant, and over analyzed decisions.  However, time can be used to directly increase the speculated size of omniwealth simply because imaginations organizing and synthesizing task is infinite. ( Basic example, pg 151)

     Once the final reason is chosen the consciousness moves toward the void along the plotted vector.  Will is the movement of consciousness along a vector causing subsequent reactions in Omniwealth. Will is what makes Omniwealth dynamic and self-interactive, creating time.   If correctly plotted the movement ends in a fulfilled goal.  A Fulfilled Goal is an intentional addition to wealth.  This adds not only the goal but additional knowledge from insight into correct understanding (if a goal was not accomplished the initial vector was flawed shedding light on the flaw in understanding creating a desire to fill that void etc.)

     For example of the above mechanics, let stagnation be examined. (Not to be confused with sloth, because in stagnation one may still be applying will.  Sloth is lack of application within inharmonious wealth. It is resistant to the pull of desire. Sometimes false contentment.)  A narcotics abuser spends years doing drugs all day.  He is therefore now very efficient in getting and using them for the same goal accomplished years ago, the goal of physical pleasure.  This particular goal yields little wealth and is an ever present void because the senses can never be filled, the instant the stimulus is removed the sense instantly becomes a void again.  Thus from the initial experience little, if any, new wealth is now acquired for the consuming dynamic power exerted.  Thus with no wealth accumulation there are no capabilities gained therefore there is no potential power increase, hence no growth.  All these fulfilled goals, being of negligible potential power, cause a rate of growth which would take lifetimes to fulfill the Archgoal.  However if this individual's static wealth was very limited, so too would be the speculated size of Omniwealth leading to a subsequently limited Archgoal.  Therefore, to this individual, this tiny nearly powerless goal may be relatively huge.  This is further reasoning for the Individualists' implementation of free knowledge.  It increases the speculated size of Omniwealth in the minds of all, allowing them to realize larger goals and to use all their dynamic power to fulfill them.  Simply the realization of a goal (void) initiates a pull (desire) on the perceiver.  When the largest voids (goals) are filled, the largest gains in potential and dynamic power are subsequently achieved, creating powerful individuals and a powerful society.

     The Individualists realize that the highest possible goal is the achievement of Omniwealth, which is all things and thus the infinite experience.  The most efficient vector to attain this is one line that ties all individual units of wealth together in their most efficient order effortlessly accumulating them all in that order up to the last unit.   It is Omniwisdom.  In this light all other goals and vectors are "less wise" to varying degrees.   This is the benchmark used by the Individualists to gauge their goals.  (Effort is a measure of Will through resistance (inefficiency).  Directly related to wealth consumed by dynamic power.)

     The Individualists believe that first there was one consciousness which was all things (Omniwealth). This then divided itself into infinite individual consciousnesses.  Each individual consciousness attempts to accumulate all these infinite pieces of self, each also a consciousness, and reassemble them into the original infinite whole.  Time, the sequence of these accumulations, is an illusion because in infinity an infinitely long second is as long as an infinitely long day.  Thus the One is still whole eternally, yet is still infinitely divided eternally.  It is the divided consciousness which moves through this eternal Oneness in a specific sequence that causes the illusion of time.  The more of its self it accumulates (knowledge) the more this illusion breaks down.  One begins to realize that there is only one consciousness, and one goal, reunification.  Thus all consciousnesses must reach this degree of recollection to reunite with each other into the original self.  It is for this reason that the Individualists believe in tailoring their goals as high as possible and with the broadest benefit to mankind possible, being that it is all One self.  To help another is to help one's self, this is proven by the phenomena of inspiration, when knowledge is shared, new knowledge erupts which may then assist the initial giver.  To help many is to help oneself many times.  This must not be confused with utter selflessness, for to properly help others one must be strong in mind, body and spirit, if one neglects oneself, there is little hope for that one to help mankind.

     This Individualistic concept of wealth consolidates the individual and his goals into one by relating them as two parts of a larger whole (omniwealth), thus the very use of wealth itself is a factor of wealth, lending growth to either the individual (positive) or the void (negative).  There are goals for the self at the expense of others, goals for the self which are neutral to others, and goals for the self that benefit others.  Of these goals, the first has no place in a society because the net benefit to the society may be negative thus a "negative" goal, like many goals of the present world. With the second type, at least there is no negative effect to society but its contributions are minimal.  For what use is knowledge and material wealth if it sits idle?  It is simply potential that may be wasted (inefficient, thus unwise) because of death before its use.  The third causes a dynamic interaction of individuals rapidly increasing the pace of evolution.  Whether an individual is alone in nature, or with men, he is in a society, because of all things being one thing.   The word "society" itself is derived from the Latin societas (fellowship, union) derived from socius (a sharing).   With this understanding the Individualists always strive to be mindful of All in their calculations to fulfill any goal.

     The power level of an entire society is the sum total of each individuals wealth (material AND immaterial) divided by their numbers. Therefore the Individualists instill the largest possible speculated size of omniwealth in their brethren and share (spread) all knowledge (wealth) so that all have the highest portion of immaterial wealth available, truely enrichening the society (remember that knowledge is the wealth that can be given without loss to he who gives, thus it is, in a sense, infinite).  Then the finite material resources are fairly distributed, (not to be confused with equally distributed).  A change in life style grants the time needed for imaginative assessments, realizing the highest goals, and plotting the most efficient paths thereto.  This creates all the conditions for accumulation of incredible potential power in each individual causing the potential power of the entire society to become incomprehensibly vast.  This is the highest power a society can have simply because of the finite nature of material wealth and its impotence without applied knowledge.  Such as a mere pencil applied to mere paper used to enlighten the entire race shows that material quantity and even quality is insignificant next to applied knowledge.  Thus the easiest way to increase the power of a society is to instill the highest available knowledge in each individual, it consumes negligible material resources to do so and the returns are near endless.  It is very similar to how the Federal Reserve creates money out of nothing, except its power is very real.

     Thus, True Individual Dynamic Power is: knowledge applied with the highest attained wisdom to material wealth to accumulate the most units of consciousness (knowledge/awareness) for each unit of consciousness as a whole.  More simply, it is knowledge applied with the highest attained wisdom to material wealth to achieve the highest benefit to Omniwealth as a whole (the self is obviously included within Omniwealth, therefore this does not imply utter selflessness).  Or loosely as knowledge applied with highest attained wisdom to material wealth to achieve the highest benefit to mankind (or society) as a whole.  Therefore the True dynamic power of a Society is their collective knowledge applied with collective wisdom to their collective material wealth to accumulate the most units of consciousness for each unit of consciousness as a whole.   Thus achieving the highest benefit for the individual, the society, the globe etc.

     This is the Infinite Work of the Individualist leading to True Wealth and True Success on infinite levels.   Due to the nature of uncertainty, it is uncertain when the Individualists will be truly content.  Contentment is the cessation of fulfilling goals.  Various factors cause contentment, lack of resources will cause contentment because dynamic power consumes resources.  The achievement of harmony will cause a seeming lack of desire due to its uniformity.  Or simply descent into sloth negating positive growth.  At very least, the Individualists are assured contentment at each new level of harmony.
