Common Sense is a relative thing. Everybody has his own interpretation of what Common Sense is. Considering myself a Common Man, I write about how I perceive things pertaining to Common Sense.
This is a very important issue that I would like to inform you about today.
There is a branch of physics that deals with the concept of "New Energy". This branch of physics is not recognized by the "scientific establishment" as anything serious, but this is always the case with science. Various madmen start on various types of crazy research and the establishment calls them madmen and fools. Then some of these madmen actually produce new and valid science, so they are not madmen any more and become part of the scientific establishment.
Here I will give you a brief outline of one of their research branches, the one I find most fascinating. This is the so called Zero Point Energy, or more popularly Vacuum Energy.
These guys, based on quanum physics, claim that you can draw infinite energy out of the vacuum. This is a shocking idea. Disruptive innovation. If this ever becomes a reality, then the energy problem will be solved once and for all, for all ages to come.
I am not in the position to judge the physics behind these theories, or how long it may be before they make it a reality, but what I know is that there is HOPE for humanity.
The additional reason why there is hope, is that today's world CAN be saved if such an innovation appears. Thank the almighty for the Internet. If the solution is found, then hopefully it will be made public on the Internet. Noone can prevent that. Then everyone will have the infinite energy technology, it will not be one country's top secret technology so that it can dominate over the others. Everyone will have free energy. The world can be a better place then.
God have mercy on us!!! What has iPod got to do with a discovery made back in 1988? Why should it share some of the glory and fame of a Physics Nobel Prize? I guess I don't have to explain that part...
Of course the text in the articles usually make it clear that iPod only USES the technology, but the headline remains blatantly incorrect. There are some media that do a much more decent job.
