Our purpose is to create and perfect a single, scalable solution which solves Humanity's worst problems, for one family, the basic unit of any society. We do this by updating the classic subsistence family farm with current technologies and solutions. Why? A lack of reliable access to these necessities is the root cause for our worst problems, including those identified in the United Nations’ Global Goals for Sustainable Development (see below).
Initiate a pilot project to design, build and perfect the Automated Close Ecosystem (ACE) house: Eco-friendly greenhouses, attached to an eco-friendly house, optimized to closed ecosystem standards (the most eco-friendly design possible) and tended by a network of automated systems (including robots). Guaranteed healthy and eco-responsible Basic Necessities (GBNs) are the result. Increasingly rapid advancements in space technology make it likely that our children could live and work in space. Closed ecosystems will be crucial for this, so getting the jump on this technology early is smart.
Fully automate the mass production of all ACE House modules to bring down the total cost enough for governments to reasonably subsidize them. Mass-produced globally, this easy access to GBNs will significantly reduce the worst forms of scarcity-based: famine, homelessness, pollution, inequality, crimes, wars, stress, illness, etc. This is the best direction for the Great Reset of the global economy, which currently treats everything as optional, even necessities. People, regardless of their economic situation, should no longer have to face this choice: Do I pay rent or buy food? The ACE House is an idea looking for a pilot project:
Transparent, Photovoltaic Graphene Greenhouse
Waste to Compost, Clean Energy and Flash Graphene Reactor
Graphene + Composites 3-D Printer
Soil, hydroponics, aeroponics
Sun, LED grow lights, ventilation, automation
Food, Garden and Human/Pet waste
Recycling and Trash: Paper, plastic, rubber
Pure graphene, aerographene, graphene foam, etc.
Graphene-enhanced materials for all economic sectors
Graphene Composite Clothing Materials
Clean Energy Production and Storage Materials
Energy Plus Construction Materials
Water Filtration Materials
The COVID-19 Pandemic forced the world into lockdowns, where only essential workers remained employed. This necessitated the adoption of various flavors of Guaranteed Basic Income (GBI) for non-essential workers, globally. The leaders and citizens of many of these countries quickly realised that their minimum wages and social assistance programs, before the GBI, were far from sufficient for the purchase of basic necessities. As vaccinations increased, restrictions were eased and GBIs were removed; many citizens were understandably resistant to return to work two or three jobs just to make ends meet. This was called the Great Resignation or the Big Quit. Not forgotten for long, the Climate Crisis has also reclaimed the stage with the UN Climate Change Conference COP26 and a steady rise in history-making natural disasters.
Desired Future History
The goal is to create this new, basic ACE housing standard for which all houses would be mandated to meet or exceed. The ACE House fulfills all of the United Nations’ Global Goals for Sustainable Development by directly addressing the cause(s) for each problem:
Graphene is a miracle material that used to be expensive to produce. The recently discovered flash process makes its prime quality production fast and inexpensive. It can be produced from any material containing carbon, which includes most of our daily household compost, garbage and recycling production. The process also generates significant amounts of hydrogen; a clean fuel that emits only water vapour when burned. By incorporating this technology into the ACE House, it becomes a decisive way of eliminating all household pollution. Mandate that all product packaging be 100% graphenable, then the ACE House becomes an ideal backbone for a circular economy that guarantees basic necessities for everyone.
We need permanent, forever solutions, now. We need to start adapting the lifecycles for all of our current products, policies and practices to meet closed ecosystem standards, right now, for a bright future. The early mastery of small, mobile, closed ecosystems will greatly simplify the design of eco-friendly houses, towns, cities, countries, space colonies, etc.:
Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX, plans to colonize Mars. Jeff Bezos, founder of Blue Origin, plans to colonize space with O’Neill Cylinders. Perhaps both could collaborate to combine their dreams into stages of a plan: Build the O’Neill Cylinders first into a Dyson Swarm, to save Humanity and Earth, in the short term. Then, gravity control research could be emphasized to make permanent colonization of Mars, the Moon and other planets, safe.
