My blog is new so people are being shy about leaving public comments. But it has prompted quite a few behind-the-scenes email conversations and one particular discussion on a discussion board about my radical new boat design at www.rowingillustrated.com where I gained valuable information and will update The New Boat page accordingly. I am benefiting from the input of the people who are writing me and portions of those emails or board posts I have incorporated into blog posts on my site.
Michael in Germany sent me this link of an article posted on the Cosmos Magazine web site: The World Urgently Needs Renewable Energy
I wrote him back:
I read the article from Cosmos Magazine … every aspect of our world crises they reference is addressed by The Cosmos Global Solution. Have you had a chance to view the presentations on the Cosmos Global Solution page?
There are so many brilliant people out there who are technically adept and experts in their fields who are making things happen, but not fast enough and not on a large enough scale.
Reading that article (and the synchronicity of it being in Cosmos) made me feel like a race horse behind the starting gate with my heart pounding — waiting for the bell to ring!
I grew up an artist, a musician, a poet and a philosopher. I was never interested in mathematics or science. I have a liberal arts degree. There is no logical explanation for how, without ever being taught — I do can do anything or make anything and find solutions for things that most people think is impossible. But I can and I do.
And now I am fascinated by science and I GET it, but in a broad sense: nuts and bolts to be positioned by the nuts and bolts people.
I will explain how it came to be that I now can envision scientific solutions in a blog post I will put up soon: The Problem of Increasing Human Energy.
I am capable of delving deeply enough into the wide array of technological fields to make a strong scientific and technically detailed proposal for exactly what forms of existing technologies to use or ideas of technologies to develop, how to put them all together, how to translate the power into a single transmittable form and make reliable predictions for how much power output to expect from each Cosmos platform accounting for geographic variables.
I just don’t think there’s time for that now. Even if I could devote my full attention to it, it would still take longer than if I worked with a team of experts in every associated discipline who already know the basic and advanced principles that would take me too long to learn — to put the million pieces of this puzzle together as fast as possible.
To reveal the Secret of what makes my contribution so invaluable is that I DON’T already know what they know. My thinking is not confined by “knowledge.”
“The gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing knowledge.”
Therefore, I will naively do the impossible as I do not know it is impossible.
“Start by doing what is necessary; then do what is possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
St. Francis of Assisi
And I have quite a knack for “solving the disadvantages of prior art” and making things SIMPLE!
I promised Michael more information about my medical device and The Cosmos and have posted pages covering many of the aspects of The Cosmos from support information that I have in a large Keynote Slideshow for making presentations in person up until now. It’s under construction. I have a lot of work cut out for me to fill in these pages and probably a dozen more with the overall plan comprised of a plethora of details, questions and ideas that currently reside in my head only.
It’s what I SAY during those presentations explaining how The Cosmos platform will work and how it catalyzes and supports an entire Global Strategy for addressing every crisis our world is facing — that is the really pertinent information. I have never written it down. As in Nature, it’s not about the “parts” but the SUM OF THE PARTS and how they all work together that makes this project so magical.
Immediately after I gave a brief presentation as a guest speaker at an “Invent Alabama” meeting, the director of the organization, also educated as an engineer emailed me:
“I knew you had talked about a big idea before, but I had no idea how big, or how realistic an idea you were talking about. It is gigantic in both scope and beauty. I am most fascinated by, and impressed with, the level of detail to which you have taken your conceptualizing. The air pistons, the biomimicry paint, the fold-up sails to compensate for conflicting wave motion on opposite leaves, the technique for addressing hurricane protection. Those all show incredible ability to understand the nature of real-world problems and challenges, and arrive at practical solutions.”
He recently wrote this succinct recommendation on LinkedIn:
“Jenifer is a remarkable individual of great vision and determination. She has an incredible capacity for learning and applying that knowledge to the problem solving skills required of inventors and entrepreneurs.” December 2, 2010

I will be making some changes to The Cosmos as I get more information, ideas and technology advances … it will continue to evolve. The more time I spend with it, the more it responds like an eager child who needs attention and is so willing to please. Pretty much like me.
I give credit to some emails exchanged with a local businessman for challenging me on issues I will face with hydrogen and methanol. I was also contacted by Gary Nolan and discovered some possible pieces of the puzzle from his video: The Promise of OTEC
The matter of how to transmit energy to the shore from the platforms is still up in the air … literally. Will I make all of the energy compressed air to be sent to shore through a submerged pipeline, or will I convert it all to one current to be transmitted by wire, by microwave, by laser? So much remains to be seen. Bruce Koppenhoefer contributed to addressing that challenge. (So many ways to skin a cat!) My preference was to rediscover how Tesla sent current through the air. I just figured when the time came for it to come to me, it would come to me.
Napoleon Hill suggested I recruit Jules Verne, Albert Einstein, St. Frances and Nikola Tesla to help work out the kinks. They’re on it.
