The Adventures of New Paradigm Thinkers and Doers

Standard

As I have mentioned before, this is a new club, blog and website. I have been carefully considering my content and intent before taking the plunge to officially put it “out there.” There will soon be a page on the menu bar titled GRC Mission that will give an overview of exactly what it is I am hoping to accomplish and how exactly I plan to do it.

I am a detail-oriented person, while at the same time my view is a vast vista that makes the phrase “seeing the big picture” seem like peering through a porthole. If you want to hear an elevator speech summarizing what I am doing, you better pick an extremely tall building.

But just to start with … why such a broad spectrum of topics and goals all on one website? Well, simply put: it is just the tip of the ice burg of who I am and my mission for being on this planet I have come to love so! There is a lot here about what I am doing anyway as I “follow my bliss.” It is a wonderful thing to monetize life-style … something I was very successful at doing as a health-retreat owner. It’s so much better than working. Doing what I love to do, living the way I want to live and sharing it with other people has yielded the feed-back more times than I can count: “You’ve saved my life.”

So in a way, the Mission of The Global Rowing Club can be summed up by saying it is a way I can can share on a very large scale. It is a way I can give people the opportunity to join me to do with me what I would be doing anyway … so they can learn to save their own lives and help other people do the same.

Does that sound dramatic and over-stated to you? DO NOT underestimate the power of self-esteem and the personal fulfillment that comes from living a life of purpose. Not only does it make life worth living for the people who find a way to discover and create it for themselves — but it is contagious!

A CLUB THAT’S A HUB

I have founded The Global Rowing Club to be a hub for people all over the world to join together to become the relentless force that will be the salvation of our planet at the 11th hour. We already all belong to this club. My intention is to create an identifiable venue that we can all share no matter where we are in the world to inspire, collect and harness the power that is within us all to change the world. There will be a day when we will raise our glasses to toast restored oceans, fresh drinking water for the children in third world countries, changed lives everywhere, renewed hope and a bright future for everyone in a Healing World.

A “VARIETY” WEBSITE

Think of this as a “variety” website that will take you all over the place — but always going in the direction of renewing energy … yours, mine and the world’s! If you take the time to absorb the multi-media material on this site, you will begin to understand the method of my madness. Everything is connected in a fascinating, fun and profound way. It is not boring. It is all about energy. There is NOTHING that is not energy. Decide to harness it and learn to master it — in yourself and for the planet. That’s what this website is about. That is what we all are about.

I want to have fun, to entertain you, to inform you, to reach you and to inspire you — because you have stumbled upon The Global Rowing Club for a reason that is personal and important to you.

Dare to be a visionary. Dare to join me and many other New Paradigm Thinkers and Doers in this adventure. There’s room for everyone in this boat!

And for your entertainment, although I am new (naive and inexperienced) to making “movies,” I will punctuate my narrative occasionally with amateurish, amusing and often-times philosophical “Sofa Movies.” There may be as many hidden messages in my little creations as in DaVinci’s Last Supper. Are you a student of nuance? If so … you may be in peril of getting sucked into another dimension.

Why not take the Red Pill? Go Down the Rabbit Hole. Come with me to Wonderland!

SOFA MOVIES ARE BORN


I’ve got a little something new. Come with me and you will too. 🙂

The World Urgently Needs Renewable Energy

Standard

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?

THE COSMOS RENEWABLE ENERGY GLOBAL SOLUTION INTRODUCTORY PRESENTATION

THE COSMOS RENEWABLE ENERGY GLOBAL SOLUTION VIDEO

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.”

Albert Einstein

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.

Flow And Grow Rich

Standard

I have posted some pieces on this website that are “previous writings” from a former website and volumes more I could put up, but I have been testing the waters with my new site and am still trying to decide how to go about it all. I have been advised that for successful blogging I should write blog posts that have a wide appeal and are not too personal.

That’s just not my style.

I certainly  (you may have already noticed ) march to the beat of a different drummer. I simply run my life according to the slippery principles of Quantum Mechanics. I was doing it before I knew I was doing it. I am myself, do my own thinking, am quite forthcoming about it … and the Law of Attraction takes care of the rest.

I am not alone living by my knowing of how things really work despite the fact most people are conditioned to operate in denial and opposition to it. It is the winning strategy. It’s called going with the flow no questions asked. Most of the time it makes no sense rationally. That’s where faith comes in and where ego has to let go.

Striving and trying to control things only leads to heart-ache, failure, an expectation of heart-ache and failure and the fulfillment of heart-ache and failure. We are that powerful. We can create that for ourselves over and over. That’s fine for a while if you can let it be your teacher. It has been mine.

It used to be kept a Secret: how things really work. They made a movie about that, by the way. But there was also a book written about it published in 1937 after 20 years of research said to be the number one success book of all time. It was commissioned by Andrew Carnegie to be written by Napoleon Hill about how he and other rich and powerful people BECAME rich. It was actually the first mainstream airy fairy book. Too many notable names were mentioned for it to be discredited. It was embraced. I am sure you have read “Think and Grow Rich.”

Whether Mr. Hill or any of the 500 highly successful people he interviewed and studied knew it or not … their secret of success was based upon the teachings of a fellow by the name of Hermes Trismegistus in ancient Egypt. His teachings were wildly popular in his day but became heretical for some reason these last 2,000 years or so. Therefore the knowledge was passed only selectively and verbally through the centuries (you’ve heard the term: “hermetically sealed”) until 3 anonymous authors dared to write a synopses of it that was published in 1908 called “The Kybalion.” Most people have heard of the first book I mention, but not the second. Deepak Chropha actually wrote his own take on it all in a little gem of a book called “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.” This philosophy pervades the writings of many current popular authors.

I used to be (still am) an endurance athlete. Then one day I heard myself say “I am an endurance inventor.” Now I call myself an endurance optimist.

I have quite a story to tell and quite a vast vision to build. I intend to attract the many other endurance optimists in this world who will not just skim my words, but ingest, understand and feel as if I am writing their thoughts and feelings. These people will be inspired and delighted because they have the same vast vision to build and have been searching for their place in The Plan. These people have the courage to pay attention, expect and eagerly embrace the answers to their prayers. These people are brave. They are my people.

Where have we been all our lives? Thank goodness we’re here now!

‘Bout time.

Calling All Visionaries

Standard

I recently received this email from a new supporter: Michael in Germany.

Ok now I am serious! I just checked out the Cosmos website and couldn’t let go of the idea. Can you send me some more info on that, something that doesn’t give away all the secrets, but informative enough to see how things function?

I’m glad you like what you see so far. It is only the tip of the ice-burg. I have tons of information available for anyone who will invest the time to assimilate and understand, not only about The Cosmos but about my strategy to fund it.

The only way people will know how capable I am of amassing the immense wealth necessary to fund the development of The Cosmos, is to pay attention to the information I supply so they can understand and believe in my plan.

The medical device was the first stage of my plan to generate private funding. I “bootstrapped” to bring it from a concept to being a quality product that is legally marketable. It was a daunting and nearly impossible task that I was told I would not be able to pull off by professionals in the field of consulting to help Medical Companies get through the submission process to bring their devices legally to market. Luckily, I was too naive to believe them … so I did it anyway … myself. It ultimately required that I (give up going to Costa Rica where I am halfway through declaring residency), close my existing business and educate myself in patent writing, FDA regulations and submission writing to hydraulic/structural engineering, mold making and plastic manufacture. I had nothing done for me. I was there in the trenches all the way.

I can’t do it that way anymore. It was an invaluable education that makes me all the more attractive to potential partners. Serial entrepreneurs who have already taken their knocks and still keep going are the people to take seriously. I used to be a millionaire but my resources have diminished from the protracted “bootstrapping” and the evaporation of my property equity in our economic crash. It takes money to make money. That’s why I am reaching out for capable and Visionary Partners to invest in and run my many potential income streams. I have an Empire to build … and Rome wasn’t built by one person.

I will take time today to make more information available on the website. Stay tuned.
