1) Arlington Partnering with UN Foundation’s Energy Future Coalition

John Peterson, August 12, 2004, http://www.arlingtoninstitute.org/energy_movingamerica.htm

Propose is to create and implement a joint strategic energy transition in the United States

The Arlington Institute has recently partnered with the UN Foundations’ Energy Future Coalition to create a joint strategic energy transition in the United States, implementing some of the recommendations Arlington posited in its recent study "A Strategy: Moving America Away From Oil," funded by the U.S. Department of Defense. The joint project aims to devise a strategy and convince policy-makers of an energy future that is more secure, more environmentally sound, and exportable to the world’s poor. The work includes initiatives to decrease U.S. dependence on oil through increased efficiencies – mainly through a significant increased usage of hybrid vehicles – and through alternative fuels that can be used in the existing infrastructure but are created through new high-tech and efficient enzymatic processes.

A Strategy: Moving America Away From Oil - Executive Summary

Recent terrorist events have again raised new questions about the security of U.S. energy. In the light of Middle East regional instability, it is fair to ask: Are there any alternatives to the status quo? How might the U.S. hurry the inevitable shift in primary energy supply, which has happened many times before in history, to a more stable, clean alternative to oil?

This study looks at historical global energy transitions, catalogues the present situation, looks into potential new technologies, envisions a new, all-electric world, and then posits a strategy that could dramatically and fundamentally change the shape of energy usage in the U.S. and the planet in the next fifteen years.

About 26% of the total energy consumption in the United States is used for transportation. Oil, 60% of which is imported, provides nearly all that energy. To solve the problem of dependency on imported oil, changes must occur in the transportation sector.

In sum, it looks like the world - led by the U.S. - is moving toward the day when hydrogen will replace oil as the major source of energy for transportation. The only question is how we get there. There are three major scenarios that describe possible energy environments of the next few decades: Awash in Oil and Gas, Technology Triumphs, and Turbulent World. Within the alternative vagaries of unlimited fossil fuels, new hydrogen-based technologies, or broad-based chaos that begs for change, a path must be planned that is based upon evolutionary change but will respond to revolutionary influences.

Where is this all going in the end? What does the world of transportation look like in, say, 2050? It's our guess that it's an all-electric world. Almost all vehicles (and most of the rest of our tools) will be electrically powered - the question is where and how the electricity is generated. Breakthroughs in generation, distribution and storage are almost inevitable and will eliminate all of the major problems associated with electricity today.

Keeping in mind possible technological breakthroughs that could leap over hydrogen fuel cells and produce electricity directly on a vehicle, we nevertheless jumped into the present methanol-ethanol-natural gas argument as a source for H2 and then assessed all of the major alternative vehicles that are presently under development.

There are a number of fundamental considerations that will always be major factors in any changes to a new energy source: political and economic feasibility, environmental impact, utilization of existing infrastructure, potential geopolitical disruption, et al. Using Think Toolsä technology, we arrayed all of these against all combinations of energy source/vehicle to isolate which options presented the best near-term, mid-term and long-term benefits. Always preserving the capability of rapidly accelerating the pace because of some major event or science breakthrough, a solid 15-year development path was designed.

The beginning of the strategy is already being played out: all manufacturers can now produce E85 engines (that can run on any combination of gasoline and ethanol up to 85% ethanol), with no changes in engineering and manufacturing cost. They should do so immediately. That would open up many hundreds of thousands of new vehicles to using ethanol, a domestically produced alternative fuel that can be distributed through the existing infrastructure with essentially no change at all.

An increasing number of manufacturers are producing hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). Electricity is produced in an HEV from an internal combustion engine/generator set and stored in batteries. Either the engine or the batteries is then used for powering electric drive motors under the most efficient conditions. HEVs are the first step toward an all-electric vehicle, and if the engine were an E85/HEV engine it would at the same time be much more fuel-efficient while a larger portion of the fuel would come from North America.

Efficiency could be significantly increased above that gained from powertrain upgrades by integrating full-system design measures that take into consideration elements like aerodynamic drag, rolling friction, heating and cooling efficiencies, etc. The best example of this is the Hypercar® that has been developed in Colorado. Hypercar® design ideas combined with the HEV drivetrain could theoretically produce average fuel consumptions around 90 mpg.

The HEV/Hypercar® could easily be upgraded with fuel cells when they become commercially available. That would be a natural evolution along the developmental path to national independence, vehicle efficiency, and environmental friendliness.

All of these initiatives must be implemented while keeping in mind the larger objective of maintaining geopolitical stability. It would make no sense to solve our domestic energy problem by causing a number of equally significant, enduring crises in other parts of the world . . . that we then have to deal with for decades to come. We must take a holistic approach to dealing with this system.

2) Japanese Deploy Solar Sails

Mark Peplow, Nature, August 10, 2004, http://www.nature.com/physics/

'Origami' technique boosts pioneering propulsion technology.

Picture taken from the rocket, shows the 'clover-leaf' solar sail once it had unfurled.

Two solar sails have been successfully launched and floated briefly through space before burning up as they re-entered the Earth's atmosphere.

The mission, run by the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), aimed to test whether the intricately folded structures would unfurl after launch. It is a promising demonstration of a technology that, some space scientists argue, is our best hope for propelling spacecraft to the stars.

Solar sails are spacecraft without engines. As the Sun's light beats down on the sheet's surface, each photon transfers a small amount of momentum to the sail, accelerating it away from the Sun. The energy involved is tiny, but over considerable time it can boost the sail to tremendous speeds because there is no friction in deep space to slow the craft down.

The Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS), a division of JAXA, launched the sails in a small S-310 rocket from Uchinoura Space Center in Kagoshima, Japan, at 6:15 GMT yesterday.

At 100 seconds after lift-off, the rocket reached an altitude of 122 kilometres, where it released the first sail. This successfully opened to make a clover-leaf shape about 10 metres across, which was then jettisoned to float through space. A second deployment opened the next sail like a pleated fan at an altitude of 169 kilometres.

Both sails burned up as they entered the Earth's atmosphere moments later, and the rocket splashed down in the Pacific Ocean about 400 seconds after lift off.

Space age origami

The Japanese experiment is quite similar to a Russian space sail, called Znamia, which was released from the Mir Space Station in 1993. But this week's launch tested improved ways of folding a sail, which are crucial for efficiently packing the structure into a small rocket and then deploying it in space.

At only 7.5 micrometres thick, the sails are about ten times thinner than a sheet of paper.

The launch is important because it shows that such large, lightweight structures can be handled in space, says engineer Wolfgang Seboldt of the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) in Cologne, Germany, who led the European Space Agency's solar sail project until earlier this year.

JAXA had already tested their 'fan' deployment method in balloon tests last year, proving that they reign supreme in space age origami. "The Japanese are of course famous for their folding technology," says Seboldt.

Technical difficulties

Solar sail technology has proved difficult to realize because the sail must be large enough to catch the Sun's rays, while still being extremely lightweight and strong. Seboldt estimates that to achieve meaningful propulsion the sail would have to measure more than 50 metres across and weigh less than 100 kilograms.

The European Space Agency put Seboldt's project on hold in spring this year when a financial review concluded that the sail would cost far more than previously thought.

In the United States, the Planetary Society's solar sail has been plagued by technical difficulties. Earlier this year, the society's director Louis Friedman announced that their sail would not launch before November this year. He hopes to use a Russian ballistic rocket to propel the sail into space.

Despite the Japanese success, Seboldt cautions that there is still a long way to go before we see a solar sail mission to the stars, because the exact force that the Sun's rays can exert on a sail remains unknown.

"For a proper test of solar sail technology, it must be launched at least 1,000 kilometres from the Earth's surface," he says. Any closer and there might be interference from gas molecules at the wispy limits of the Earth's atmosphere, he explains, that could obscure the tiny forces delivered by solar photons.

3) Nanobulbs make their debut
J. Wei et al., Physics Web, 4 June 2004, Appl. Phys. Lett. 84 4869,

Light bulbs have not changed much since they were invented by Thomas Edison 125 years ago. However, physicists in China have now made a light bulb in which the conventional tungsten filament is replaced by carbon nanotubes. The new design has several advantages over traditional light bulbs and could be available in less than five years.

Jinquan Wei and colleagues from Tsinghua University and Bingqing Wei at Louisiana State University started by using chemical vapour deposition to make highly pure nanotubes. Next they soaked the resulting bundles of nanotubes in alcohol and assembled the structures into long filaments as the alcohol evaporated. Finally they replaced the tungsten filament in an ordinary 40-watt light bulb with the nanotube filaments and sealed the bulb under vacuum.

The team found that the nanotube filaments emit light across their length and that they have a lower threshold voltage for light emission than tungsten filaments -- 3 to 5 volts compared with 6 volts. More importantly, the nanotube filaments emit more light than tungsten filaments at the same applied voltage. The light is a combination of black body radiation and electroluminescence.

Wei and colleagues were surprised to find that, unlike tungsten filaments, the resistance of the nanotube filaments did not change with temperature up to about 1750 Kelvin. This means that the nanotube filaments could be used to make precision resistors that work at high temperatures. Moreover, they found that the bulbs could operate continuously at 25 volts for more than 360 hours, and that they continued working after being turned on and off more than 5000 times.

"More work needs to be done but I would say the bulbs could be available within three to five years," Bingqing Wei told PhysicsWeb.

4) Tom Valone, PhD, Speaks on Zero-point Energy Extraction from the Quantum Vacuum

Review by T. Cullen, Sterling D. Allan, Susan Carter Pure Energy Systems, August, 2004 http://www.pureenergysystems.com/events/conferences/2004/teslatech_SLC/TomValone/ZPE_Extraction_QuantumVacuum.htm

In a talk titled "Feasibility of Zero-point Energy Extraction from the Quantum Vacuum for Useful Work", Dr. Valone reviewed what ZPE is and how it is being used as he addressed the ExtraOrdinary Technology conference in Salt Lake City on Friday, July 30, 2004, .

To kick off his talk, he cited a recent article in the Los Angeles Times (July 25, 2004) that stated that our only hope for solving the energy crisis is to be willing to consider "extreme possibilities." With that introduction, he then cited numerous instances in which mainstream journals of science have been dabbling in a discussion of zero point energy.

He discussed how the vacuum used to be considered empty, but now it has been shown that the vacuum contains an enormous amount of energy. Even when you remove all sources of energy and cool a region to very close to absolute zero (the zero point), there is useable energy present in abundance. He said that this is why Helium stays liquid at fractions of a degree Kelvin. Dr. Valone described an experiment by Koltick that shows the effect of virtual particle "dressing" that shrouds an electron. The Quantum Vacuum text by Milonni, he says, estimates the ZPE energy density at 220 erg/cc in optical regions. These measurements were able to be made because of science’s ability to study matter at the nanoscopic level. He also reported that gravity and inertia are proven to be effects of ZPE, by none other than Dr. Hal Puthoff at the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin.

Dr. Valone described the Casimir Effect, and how it can be used to tap ZPE. This is the slight attraction seen in metal plates when placed very close (atomic distances) to each other. The attraction can be shown to come from ZPE. Valone cites evidence that the ZPE is not conserved, and does not follow the normal laws of energy conservation. He also showed documented research that sometimes the Casimir Force is repulsive due to magnetic or thermal conditions. In some cases, the force changes sign as the temperature increased. This can lead to ways to manipulate and control ZPE.

In his presentation, Dr. Valone cited several mainstream science journals that are now publishing works by ZPE researchers (Some examples: Phys. Review Letters #92, 2004; Aviation Week March 1 2004; Science v. 299 issue 5608: 2003 p. 862.) He talked about Robert L. Forward’s early work proposing to extract energy from the Casimir Effect and how he made an electron storage battery instead. He said that now that we have the ability to work with nanotechnology, we have the tools to extract energy from the zero point field.

Valone also discussed toroidal EM fields. He said that a ZPE field loses its drag when the temperature nears 0ºK, according to Fronig's research. He also cited references that show that we can now explain how it is possible to extract useable energy from a single heat source (not from a temperature difference), which challenges the First Law of Thermodynamics.

Valone also talked about quantum coherence and micro laser cavities. He cited the works of Pinto (Phys Rev. B 60, 21, 1999 p. 4457) and how he was able to use a micro laser cavity to change the properties and increase the Casimir force – like turning on a light and getting a force out. He also spoke about the fluctuation driven electricity experiments by Crooks (Phys Rev. E. 60, 1999) where he is able to get motion from zero input force. He described this as like a "quantum ratchet". The research by Linke in Science magazine was also cited. Valone described a report in the July 8, 2004 issue of Nature about how the "Dark Energy" of astronomy is ZPE, and is why the universe is accelerating. He said that when he confronted astronomer Reba Goodman about this nomenclature, and that they are describing Zero Point Energy, so why didn’t they just call it ZPE, the astronomer replied that they "wanted to keep it vague."

He said spectral density for ZPE is Plank’s 2nd radiation law, which has now been also measured in superconducting tunnel diode noise and reported in a journal article entitled "Has Dark Energy Been Measured in the Laboratory?" Where superconducting circuits are concerned, it is interesting to point out that "Perpetual Motion Machines of the Third Kind," as he put it, have been achieved with superconducting currents that won't stop, even after ten years of operating with no further energy input, such as those used in MRI machines.

Valone listed the following patents as the most significant in ZPE research: "Rectifying Thermal Electric Noise" by Charles Brown 3890161, and 4004210 by Yater; and 4704622 by Capasso, which actually acknowledges ZPE. He mentioned that metal-metal nanodiodes probably hold the key to ZPE usage with millipore sheets.

He also cited the work of Yasamoto, et. Al. (2004, Science, 304:1944) covering peptide molecular photodiodes just 1 nm across -- another example of a molecular tool for studying this zero point energy that shows up on the molecular level.

Dr. Valone’s report makes one realize that experiments tapping ZPE are now starting to be researched and discussed by the respected scientific community’s peer-reviewed journals.

5) Expert Warns of Devastation Unleashed by Collapsing Volcano
John von Radowitz, Science Correspondent, PA News, Aug. 9, 2004 http://news.scotsman.com/latest.cfm?id=3318282

World leaders were today urged to wake up to the threat from a collapsing mountain which at any moment could unleash a massive tidal wave on the east coast of North America. A chunk of a volcano in the Canary Islands the size of the Isle of Man is on the brink of falling into the sea, a leading expert warned.

Scientists believe it could break away when the Cumbre Vieja volcano in La Palma next erupts. If that happened a giant tsunami, or massive wave, reaching heights of more than 500 feet would be sent racing across the Atlantic at the speed of a passenger jet. Around nine hours later it would hit the Caribbean islands and the east coasts of Canada and the US. After travelling 4,000 miles the wave would be lower and wider but still 20 metres – 50 metres (66ft – 164ft) high.

Stretching for many miles, it would home in on estuaries and harbours and sweep up to 20 miles inland, destroying everything in its path. Boston, New York, Washington DC and Miami would be virtually wiped off the map and tens of millions of people killed. Leading expert Professor Bill McGuire today said close monitoring might at best provide two weeks warning of the disaster.

But although the danger had been known about since the 1990s, no-one was keeping a proper watch on the mountain. The two or three seismographs left to pick up signs of movement in the rock were not capable of detecting a looming eruption weeks in advance.

"What we need now is an integrated volcanic monitoring set up to give maximum warning of a coming eruption," said Prof McGuire, director of the Benfield Grieg Hazard Research Centre at University College London.
"The US government must be aware of the La Palma threat. They should certainly be worried, and so should the island states in the Caribbean that will really bear the brunt of a collapse.
"They’re not taking it seriously. Governments change four to five years and generally they’re not interested in these things."

A monitoring station equipped to look deep into the heart of the mountain and spot the early signs of an eruption might cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, said Prof McGuire. In comparison, the US was spending four million dollars (£2.2 million) a year scouring the skies for kilometre-sized asteroids which were much less of a threat. Speaking at a briefing in London, Prof McGuire said the mountain could split apart literally the next time the volcano erupts. Cumbre Vieja last erupted in 1949. The next eruption could occur this year, or not for the next 1,000 years.

Any evacuation plan would have to be based on the forecast of an eruption, since once the collapse happened it would be too late. Yet it could be a false alarm. Several eruptions could come and go before one of them sent the mountain side crashing into the sea in a matter of minutes. Prof McGuire acknowledged that the decision to depopulate the eastern seaboard of the US would not be an easy one. "I don’t honestly know how we handle that," he said. "As scientists all we should really do is advise people of what we think the risks are."

The wave-front from the collapse would spread out in a crescent, striking the west African coast with a wall of water more than three hundred feet high in two to three hours. Its northern side would also brush against Europe. Within three to four hours, a 33ft high wave would smash into the south coast of England, causing immense damage. Unlike a normal wave, the tsunami would not break rapidly but just keep coming, said Prof McGuire. "You’re not talking about the destruction of the UK economy, but very serious damage along the south coast," he said. Trying to stop the mountain collapsing was simply out of the question, he said. He had done a calculation which showed it would take 35 million years to dig out the dangerous part of the volcano and move it away.

6) Directed, Gravitational-Wave Impulse Energy that Produces Force Currently Under Study

Thomas Valone, Future Energy magazine, Fall, 2004, www.IntegrityResearchInstitute.org

For years, science fiction has entertained the fantasy of force fields and directed "phasor" or "photon torpedo" weapons. Even levitating vehicles, using a force field concept, constantly are featured in even the latest futuristic movies (e.g., I, Robot) and insurance company television ads (e.g., New York Life). However, what progress has science made in producing these effects?

It is widely accepted that the US government has advanced field-generation propulsive technology in classified and unacknowledged projects, shared with only a few aerospace companies. The second "Billion Dollar Secret" television special in 2005 by Jane's Defense Weekly editor, Nick Cook, will explore details of these programs. In a recent correspondence, Nick says, "Current plans should see us delivering the film early next year for airing on TV (the History Channel in the US) in the early spring." Nick is also the author of The Hunt for Zero Point (Random House), a book exploring the history of field propulsion technology. In the US Patent and Trade Office, there are over 4000 "secretized" patents in the PTO vault, never to see the light of day, that mostly deal with energy and propulsive force inventions, carefully selected by PTO representatives of government agencies like DOE, NASA, USAF, DARPA, etc. At least a few civilian advocacy groups have called attention to this prolonged sequestering of advanced technology, that could be used for civilian purposes (e.g. Dr. Steven Greer, author of Disclosure, www.disclosureproject.org ).

In the unclassified arena, directed energy pulse launchers have been patented by the Department of Energy (e.g. 4,959,559) which are a "physical realization of wave propagation equations, such as Maxwell's equations and the scalar wave equation, to produce localized pulses of wave energy..." while even giving credit to Star Trek's photon torpedo in the patent disclosure.

In an audio-interview reported on June 26, 2004 by Tim Ventura with Dr. Robert Baker Jr., the creator of http://www.gravwave.com corroborates the subject of Podkletnov's latest research ( http://www.americanantigravity.com/interviews.shtml 1.2mb, Windows Media 9 format). Dr Baker has done an excellent job collecting and categorizing several different approaches to creating what Dr. Ning Li calls "AC-Gravity" and he's applied an engineer's eye to reducing the complex science to easily understandable techniques for testing these concepts. Regarding artificially-created gravity force, Ning Li recently chaired an unclassified DOD-sponsored, Gravitational-Wave Conference at the Mitre Corporation in Virginia on May 6-9, 2003 www.mitre.org as part of the International High-Frequency Gravitational Wave (HFGW) Working Group. (A CD-Proceedings of the Mitre conference papers is available from IRI on a donation basis). Integrity Research Institute plans to conduct a Gravity Conference in November, 2005 to help educate the public on the variety of research on gravity, anti-gravity, artificial gravity, repulsive force fields, speed of gravity, etc.

Beams of directed gravitational-wave energy at high-frequencies, designed to produce tons of force, are currently under study by both the government and private entities, says Baker. These can be produced through electrical & magnetic jerks, as well as continuous-mode effects from high-amplitude RF-signals.

In the public mind, the work of Eugene Podkletnov is arguably the beginning of this type of research. His "Impulse Gravity Generator Based on Charged Superconductor with Composite Crystal Structure" from 2001 is posted on the Los Alamos National Lab website: http://www.arxiv.org/abs/physics/0108005 . The achievements since his early experiments are considerably more impressive (and much less well known) than the mainstream media ever realized. He describes the achievement of a "focused beam without noticeable attenuation through different materials and exerts a short repulsive force..." Published a year after this impulse gravity paper, Podkletnov describes further research on the collimated beam from high voltage discharges of about 1MV and 10KA in his "Investigation of High Voltage Discharges in Low Pressure Gases Through Large Ceramic Superconducting Electrodes" http://www.arxiv.org/abs/physics/0209051 . Here the measuring systems of pendula were place 150 meters away and shielded by 80 cm brick walls and still registered brief deflections. "It acted on small interposed mobile objects like a repulsive force field, with a force proportional to the mass of the objects." Interestingly, trapped magnetic flux in the superconductive emitter increased the impulse strength by approximately 25%.

Dr. Baker speculates about the theoretical possibilities of this technology:

"Utilizing a HTSC lens for concentrating HFGW power the theoretical ten-megawatt pulse output predicted in HFGW -03-107, 380-kilowatt continuous power predicted in HFGW -03-117, 11-kilowatt continuous power predicted in HFGW -03-106, and the over one-kilowatt pulse power predicted in HFGW -03-113 could be concentrated to provide HFGW fluxes in excess of 1020 [watts/m2]."

Though NASA spent millions researching a 2% loss in weight, this technology is much more robust. in fact, the limits on this technology are so promising that it conceivably could be utilized for planetary environmental defense, such as giant tidal wave abatement and incoming meteor deflection. The experiments described often require sensitive equipment to measure, but more often than not can be conducted using very common materials. Baker also discusses microwave-oven elements & cell-phone emitters as a potential means of transducing MW-frequencies into a superconductor, somewhat like Podkletnov.

It is reasonable to expect that as Earth's competing factions eventually choose to cooperate, that planetary defense using gravitational-wave impulse energy will be a high priority to ensure the survival of the species.

7) Perendev Magnetic Motor to Debut on German TV

by Sterling D. Allan Copyright © 2004
Pure Energy Systems News

All-magnet motor said to be emerging from first production run. News conference planned, including coverage by RTL German television.

German television will be the first to document and air a demonstration of the Perendev Magnetic Motor any day now, if things go according to plans, says inventor, Michael Brady, who is in Germany to oversee the final touches on a German manufacturer's first production run of the motor.

Production is expected to be completed at the end of this week, said Brady, whose optimistic predictions tend to run ahead of Murphy's laws of reality.

Perendev Power Developments Pty (Ltd), of Johannesburg, has contracted with a German company to manufacture the first units. The license is for all of Europe, minus the U.K. Another agency is in line for production in Australia, and yet another for rights to North America.

Brady reports that Perendev Power will be holding a news conference in September with German news media. He said coverage will include RTL, a local German television station.

The German agency, whose identity Perendev is not yet disclosing, is also licensing the rights to another invention of Brady's -- a nitrogen motor, set to enable water craft to once again run on German waters, where fossil-fuel-powered craft have been banned.

C) Breakthrough Technologies for the World's Biggest Problems

On April 27-28, 2004, technology experts, entrepreneurs, investors, academics, policy makers, and journalists converged on the Washington D.C. area to spend two provocative days looking at breakthrough technologies and their global impact. The event, "Breakthrough Technologies for the World's Biggest Problems," was hosted by The Arlington Institute, a non-profit think-tank.

This significant event in the nation’s capital included:

Presenters included the brightest minds in this space. Ray Kurzweil, one of the world's best-known inventors and thinkers about technology issues, gave the keynote. Eric Drexler, the "father" of molecular nanotechnology provided his ideas about how new technologies could solve the most important problems of the future. Hunter Lovins, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and former co-CEO of the Rocky Mountain Institute (world experts in energy policy), led attendees through the bridging of social change and technological change. Joe Firmage demonstrated the most advanced search and file software, free of mouse clicks.

Extraordinary, world-changing technologies were also showcased throughout the conference. The developers of some of the most innovative and profound tools that have the potential of revolutionizing the energy, education, waste remediation and transportation sectors described their products and the opportunities for participation and involvement.

"Humanity's future is inextricably tied to technology," said John Petersen, President of The Arlington Institute. "We have to learn how to utilize new breakthrough technologies to address our biggest, most intractable problems -- and not create longer-term challenges for ourselves in the process."

The sponsors of this conference included: Piper Rudnick LLP, the Northern Virginia Technology Council, the World Future Society, Campaign for Better Health, Global Integral Solutions, What's Working Green Building, the Water Stewards Network, Global Medicine Hunter, Thirsty-Fish Marketing and Storytelling, the Center for Cognitive Liberty and Ethics, and the Spiral Dynamics Group.
