Everything you learned in Grade 5 science class has to be reset and viewed through the lens of growth in our collective knowledge. We need to brace ourselves for the coming tsunami of change and how we interact with the world around us.
We all know that the “World is Getting Incredibly Small”.
Social media, lightning-fast telecommunications and advances in transportation make everything closer and more immediate. Because of this, we all feel a little more insignificant. It is futile to resist. For good or bad, we are on the cusp of massive changes and the best we can do is hang on for what will be a wild ride.
Remember when space was defined as the next frontier? You can now replace the word space with the word nanotechnology.
What exactly is nanotechnology? In its simplest terms, the word applies anytime that a technology is less than 100 nm’s. 1 nanometer is 1 billionth of a meter.
To put that in perspective, the hair on your head is between 50,000 & 100,000 nanometers wide and as such doesn’t even come close to falling into this category. Your DNA is 2.5 nm (nanometers) and your fingernails grow at a pace of approximately 1 nm/second.
So how can something so incredibly small make such a difference in your world and where will you see that change impacting you personally? Here is where it gets really interesting.
Every single part of your life will be touched. As we gain insight into the molecular world around us, we will see radical changes in medicine, dramatic advancements in our ability to generate energy, a transition away from antiquated methods of cleaning water and soil to more holistic nano scaled technologies which use less energy and perform these functions at lightning speed and so much more. Changes will even touch on how easily your children will understand and learn the lessons being taught in their school.
The world of pure science found in your local university is grappling with trying to understand how the world around us actually works and in order to do this, they need to understand the basic building blocks at an atomic level.
By now you have heard of the Hadron Collider near Geneva. The goal of the more than 10,000 scientists from 100 different countries working with this 27-kilometer (17 mile) tube is to understand the laws governing the interactions and forces of the world around us. Understanding these building blocks will allow us to affect how we relate to the natural and our man-made environment.
As an example, a small company out of Arizona has learned to manipulate the frequencies of all solids and liquids. The simple act of changing frequencies has implications in every facet of our lives.
For instance; they have proven that changing the frequency of water at the molecular level will reduce the amount of water used in concrete production by 25%. In a world struggling to find fresh water, reducing the amount used in an everyday commodity like concrete can have very significant advantages.
Each year more than 10 billion tons of concrete is blended with 780 BILLION gallons of water. Reducing water consumption for just this one part of our economy would increase the availability of water for human use by 195 billion gallons each and every year.
That’s impressive and only the beginning of what is sure to be a paradigm shift in our world.
