The Life Story of the Sun and Earth

I will make five hour long lecture videos and a 30 second, 5, and 15 minute trailer for YouTube to spread the idea our shared global community. We seek to reach all people regardless of nationality, education level, religious orientation, etc. by targeting the course to the global average 15 years old education level.

I am going to start putting together a lecture on chemistry, ethics, genetics, and a protein that is important for life on earth and game theoretic approaches to understanding how it can be imagined as a place of balance of power on earth as I did during a lecture at Princeton Theological Seminary. The protein, found in the genomes of all plants and some bacteria, is called photosystem II and uses light to make food for all life on earth in what is called photosynthesis. The idea is to explain life on earth as a system and that this protein is an important “river” of energy. It, with the exception of life that lives in deep sea vents, is the source of how solar energy enters into all kinds of life. Animals, bacteria, fungi, and plants all rely on this protein. So, the idea is to build a foundation lecture to explain about the science of this protein. Then, I will explain how ethics links to this protein. I will talk about sharing and cooperation to facilitate a balance of energy on earth between those life forms who have power and those who do not. We will encourage the evolution a scientific foundation and approach for good ethics in humanity.

I welcome any help you can provide.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
