What We Need Help With

  • A financial backer for any of the conceptual ideas in the Idea Emporium, or established (but still early stage) projects featured on the Projects Seeking Funding page
  • Finding a buyer for an interesting bit of biotech Intellectual Property related to command and control of genetically altered organisms ($3MM offering price)
  • Always looking for referrals to individuals or businesses interested in creating sustainable financial, social, or ecological systems, particularly those that already have a budget in mind.

If you have experience in any of the following and would be willing to impart a bit of knowledge, please get in touch with me. I’m willing to pay or set up some sort of work trade for help in these areas.

Business related

  • Experience with grants, small business innovation research (SBIR), and related grant vehicles
  • Private funding sources interested in sustainable development
  • Supply chain development & materials/parts sourcing
  • Making sure projects are taking advantage of all applicable government incentives for CleanTech
  • Navigating the regulatory space including permitting, and politics

Science related/technical skills

  • Electron microscopy, spectrophotometer, Molecular Dynamics Phosphor imager, and mass spectrometry, microbiology technical skills, genetic engineering, microbe identification via microscopy etc.
  • GIS, keyline design, holistic planned grazing, silvopasture, agroecological design etc.
  • Fabrication and Machining experience (e.g. lathe, milling, CNC, CAD, CAM)
  • 3D, multispecies, ocean aquaculture

Burning Question that if you could answer I would be eternally grateful

  • Is there anything to the idea that bumblebees have a resonance chamber near their larynx that allows them to vibrate and create a sort of buoyancy within the earth’s electromagnetic field allowing for much easier flight?
    • Probably the accepted explanation (null hypothesis): http://www.livescience.com/33075-how-bees-fly.html
    • Alternative hypothesis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JrtTtpo7TA
      •  “Next to the larynx in the bumblebees throat, there is a tiny hollow tube that acts as a resonance cavity that accumulates frequency. When the bee starts beating its wings, it does this to accumulate frequency which bounces back and forth in the resonator cavity until it reaches the same frequency of the earth, known as the Schumann frequency. Once the bee reaches the same frequency as its surroundings it evens out into what is known as zero point. When anything reaches zero point you can then change the energy. The bee is now free from the gravitational influence around it, creates its own little magnetic bubble and hovers around. There are some lizards and hummingbirds that do the same thing.” – Ralph Ring
