“.. Nuclear Power Revealed

So let me tell you what else they did. They just showed you what's wrong with nuclear power. "Safe to the maximum," they said. "Our devices are strong and cannot fail." But they did. They are no match for Gaia.

It seems that for more than 20 years, every single time we sit in the chair and speak of electric power, we tell you that hundreds of thousands of tons of push/pull energy on a regular schedule is available to you. It is moon-driven, forever. It can make all of the electricity for all of the cities on your planet, no matter how much you use. There's no environmental impact at all. Use the power of the tides, the oceans, the waves in clever ways. Use them in a bigger way than any designer has ever put together yet, to power your cities. The largest cities on your planet are on the coasts, and that's where the power source is. Hydro is the answer. It's not dangerous. You've ignored it because it seems harder to engineer and it's not in a controlled environment. Yet, you've chosen to build one of the most complex and dangerous steam engines on Earth - nuclear power.

We also have indicated that all you have to do is dig down deep enough and the planet will give you heat. It's right below the surface, not too far away all the time. You'll have a Gaia steam engine that way, too. There's no danger at all and you don't have to dig that far. All you have to do is heat fluid, and there are some fluids that boil far faster than water. So we say it again and again. Maybe this will show you what's wrong with what you've been doing, and this will turn the attitudes of your science to create something so beautiful and so powerful for your grandchildren. Why do you think you were given the moon? Now you know.

This benevolent Universe gave you an astral body that allows the waters in your ocean to push and pull and push on the most regular schedule of anything you know of. Yet there you sit enjoying just looking at it instead of using it. It could be enormous, free energy forever, ready to be converted when you design the methods of capturing it. It's time. …”

Heritage building in Tangerang rescued by private home buyer

Mariani Dewi, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Tue, 01/06/2009 11:09 AM 


Two heritage houses at Karawaci, Tangerang, on the verge of being demolished have been bought by a private citizen, escaping their final blow.


But whether the complex remains open to the public still remains to be seen.


The land where the houses sit has not been bought, so the building will be restored at another location. The time-line for restoration has not been fixed because a relocation site has not been purchased yet.


The houses were partly dismantled by the house contractors, who sold the ruins to antique traders when the purchase was made.


"The dismantlement of the houses stopped Dec. 16 and will continue mid-January. The parts will be stored at a warehouse in Bekasi (West Java) until then," Andipo Wiratama, a member of a volunteer group Citizens Care for Heritage Buildings (Walibatu) told The Jakarta Post over the weekend.


The houses will be dismantled in January according to standard procedures to prepare for resembling at the new site chosen by the owner. This requires a detailed, scaled floor plan and the establishment of a common coding system for the different parts.


The buyer, who refused to be identified, bought the buildings, but not the land. He said he would try to retrieve the sold items.


"The houses are now in the new buyer's hands. We are unsure if he will really rebuild the houses," Andipo said.


"We wanted to keep the houses at their original location, but we could not strike a deal with the seller and the buyer. From our point of view, we failed."


The group found out about the demolition last month and alerted architects, historians, the media and the Tangerang administration.


Although the group received support from the public, the Tangerang administration did not respond to the petition they submitted last month.


Budi Lim, an architect who cares about heritage buildings, said the deal was a necessary compromise.


"It was the best to keep the houses at their original place, but it was very hard to do, time was pressing," he said.


He said he had been in contact with the new owner, who seemed determined to rebuild the house at similar location, preferably in the same neighborhood.


Budi, who was involved in the preservation of the National Archive Museum and the revitalization of the Old Town, will be involved in the recording and dismantling process.


"The house will be restored using the same construction technique with many of the old materials, such as the bricks and roof tiles. If more materials are needed, we will find parts from the same era so they will be similar," he said.


"Of course we will install modern electrical wiring and safety measures to the house," he added.


He said restoration was possible, just like what was done to restore the 300-year-old National Archives Building in Central Jakarta, which won the UNESCO Award of Excellence.


Experts will conduct archaeological, social and historical studies as part of the preservation effort.


"I don't know where the funding will come from, but these steps must be taken. Conservation is not only about buildings, but about the whole environment. We need to study the history of the area and potential impacts," he said.


"We have to have certain value and ethics *in carrying out preservation efforts*.


"It is not romanticism, but a responsibility to future generations."
