The immediate material changes would push both humanity and Earth's ecosystems back from the brink of destruction that they currently sit on, and this section explores some of those changes.

Some basic questionsHere is the opening of our book proposal.

More specifically, The Classical Hollywood Cinema addressesfour questions:

I realize that almost nobody on Earth today can pass the integrity tests that my fellow travelers were subjected to, and I do not ask that of anybody whom I will attempt to recruit into my upcoming effort. It will be a non-heroic approach, of “merely” achieving enough heart-centered sentience and awareness to where a world of free energy and abundance is only by a sizeable group , but who will also not be proselytizing. If they can truly understand this essay’s message, they will probably .

Do you really want to delete this prezi?

Those recruits will simply be singing a song of practical abundance that will attract those who have been . Once enough people know the song by heart and can sing it, and have attracted a large enough audience that can approach the free energy issue in a way that risks nobody’s life and will not be easy for the provocateurs and the effort’s “allies” to wreck, then it will be , but .

Hart in his earlier days was seen as the perfect westerner.

Paleocene mammals were rarely apex predators. Crocodilians survived the end-Cretaceous extinction and remained dominant in freshwater environments, although turtles lived in their golden age in the Paleocene Americas and might have even for a brief time. The largest snakes ever recorded (, ) lived in the Paleocene and could swallow crocodiles whole. In addition to , a and , although .

Wages rose to sometimes 30% more than what they were.

In the end, is the most meaningful standard of living measure. Declining total available energy and declining EROI contribute to a declining energy surplus. Most people have some understanding of hunger, and if they have experienced blackouts, brownouts, or gas shortages, they have keenly felt the loss of energy. But the decline of industrial civilization has many other signs that comfortable Westerners can have difficulty grasping, and the following examples are intended to make it clearer.

That’s where entertainment comes in.

England had nearly a century’s head start on the competition with its Industrial Revolution, which is why it became the world’s triumphant imperial power, to be later supplanted by its offspring and rival, the USA. Turning coal into an industrial fuel, for smelting iron and powering machines, initiated the Industrial Revolution, and the next big innovation was making machines to replace hands. English inventors , and the 1760s and 1770s were the golden age of spinning innovation, and the , , and were all invented. By the 1790s, people using such machines . I call one worker with a machine outperforming 150 people without one an energy-and-technology-leveraged human. Energy-powered technology allowed a person to vastly outperform humans without it. Was that person 150 times more dexterous? Smarter? Faster? Stronger? The machine did the work, not the person, and energy made it all happen, not the equipment. Without energy to run it, machinery is useless, but without human-made technology, the energy was unavailable. Such machines would never have been without the available energy to run them. Those early spinning machines ran on water power from the .
