How are getting on with nature?
Dear Foundation For Common Good members,
This is an occasional newsletter to provide an update on the eco-system of co-operating projects working to set an example of thriving and providing for all of our needs as harmlessly as possible, namely:

HAF - HA3 MOROCCO
I have been in Morocco working to structure an Development Impact Bond for High Atlas Foundation 501(c)(3) and it's for profit subsidiary, High Atlas Agriculture and Artisanal (HA3) to finance the design, construction and training up of a a processing facility to shell, wash, dry and package the 900tn of almonds that HAF has certified organic through their 300 community co-operatives, 9 organic tree nurseries and 1,300,000 organic fruit and nut trees planted to date. Team member David Edwards from Prince Charles' sustainability unit has kindly agreed to take an impact development bond to their network of potential financiers who are aligned in the interest of stabilising the region with this environmentally, socially and economically regenerative model.
After 20 days working to assess the situation in Morocco, I have concluded the following:
- There is no production line in Morocco or present plan at HAF-HA3 that can take the product from the poor communities and process it in a way that it is allowed to access the global market in a meaningful way to HAF, it's co-operatives or the Moroccan people.
- We need to work with a specialist technological partner to design the production line, train the people at the facility in Asni (pictured below) how to use it and hopefully keep developing the other potential processing sites with us HAF have been offered by the Moroccan department of Agriculture. I have opened lines of communication with a few Almond processing technology groups to get prices for an assembly line that allows us to deal with present demand, supply and potential growth. At present all plans for production do not allow the operation to take enough orders to grow at a meaningful rate as calculated by a whole systems cash flow / balance sheet calculator I build out of real world data I inputted into the calculator from a fact finding mission I went on. After Almonds we can look at other product lines we are being offered in the hundreds of tonnes: figs, pomegranates, olives, walnuts etc.
- A partnership with an international development organisation needs to be formed to train HAF and structure the bond, acting as independent verifier. I am developing relations with www.instiglio.org and other development agencies focusing on Development Impact Bonds who are expert in this.
- Once team member HAF president Yossef has completed the update to the HA3 business plan narrative (c. three weeks) I will have completed the cash flow projections and identified various partners for item two and three with different prices and services. Having updated the business plan and financial data thus we will approach David Edwards with our International Development Bond development partner for introduction to a fund with similar social impact goals to develop the bond and verification methods with us.
- I am organising my contract between myself, HAF and Foundation For Common Good for providing these business development services, hereafter I will complete the tasks above at the board of HAFs conclusion. The contract affords FFCG a share of the sales we generate for the aforementioned sustainable development model.
Jana is the general manager of the HA3 organising holding company that is working to develop the first processing facility at Asni, one short hour South of Marrakech beneath the highest of the Atlas Mountains. We are now working to bring the organisation into one coherent set of transparent project management mechanisms that we have been working on together (onekerika.com scrum board for project management and one set of project documents in one legal library for all team members to work from Together). This is no simple task and will need the full co-operation of HAF and HA3 groups.
GREEN CAMP WINTER SOLSTICE WITH BRUCE PARRY
Green Camp has been massively simplified but I am very happy to say that Winter solstice will be celebrated there with Bruce Parry, the mind behind and presenter of BBC.co.uk/tribe. We will have holotrophic breath-work around the fire in the Tipi, Yoga and drumming in the Yoga Dome and vegan permaculture living. For more info see: www.green-camp.uk/diary/winter-solstice-2015
PLEASE PROMOTE THE VEGAN PERMACULTURE DESIGN COURSE WITH YOU NETWORKS IF YOU WOULD BE SO KIND www.green-camp.uk/vpdc
I am delighted to say that Gerald Pollack, professor of Bio Engineering of The University of Washington has expressed an interest to join a delegation which may potentially include team mate Denzyl from Apple, engineers from Rolls Royce and others to see Mr Andrea Rossi and the ECAT in Miami after the one year tests are completed in February in the hope to support the development and spread of the ECAT technology.
Professor Pollack set up the Institute for venture science which is a potential partner for providing a framework for the development of the fundamental science and investment in it while protecting the inventor and their interests.
The Institute for Venture Science (IVS) will fund high-risk, non-traditional scientific inquiries that may produce fundamental breakthroughs. We identify the most promising challenges to prevailing paradigms. We then simultaneously fund multiple research groups worldwide for each selected challenge.
An unconventional idea pursued by a dozen laboratories cannot be ignored. This means that challenge paradigms can compete on equal footing with prevailing paradigms. The superior one should prevail. This strategy of producing a critical mass for promising ideas can produce fresh, diverse understandings of the world in which we live.
Gaining fresh understanding may seem an outright luxury in today’s culture of practicality. However, human existence faces unprecedented threats: dwindling energy resources; diminishing supplies of potable water; increasing incidence of chronic disease; etc. Practical solutions have always come from scientific breakthroughs: e.g., the antibiotic addressed the problem of bacterial disease; the discovery of electricity solved the problem of worldwide communication. More than ever, the world needs revolutionary breakthroughs to break the logjam of existential crises that threaten our survival.
By fostering breakthroughs, the IVS will enrich the world with fresh vision, and help create viable solutions for today’s seemingly intractable problems.
ECAT inventor Mr. Andrea Rossi has directed to a journal reporting on and developing the science around the ECAT www.journal-of-nuclear-physics.com/ a treasure trove of the most sensible theoretical models working to explain nature and the ECAT reaction, apparently in their number upwards of 100 different theories. I hope the IVS can help to work organise and integrate these at the highest levels of scientific rigour.
INTRODUCING RAFAEL ARAUJO
I am delighted to introduce the artist Raphael Araujo to the team. Rafael's knowledge of the sacred geometry and harmonic proportion of shell and all living forms that he draws in 3D by hand to perfect scale is unparalleled. Trained as an architect originally, he is now focused on his art and it's promotion.
Rafael has kindly let me draw some concepts for community centers for Green Camp over his shell architecture as the harmonic geometry is perfect and it would serve as a resonant cavity for the biomagnetic wave forms of life and therefore support meditation and the bio-electric/magnetic energy field of the subtle body and therefor more stable states of awareness and presence; everything one needs for a community center that is using community participatory planning approaches to decide what to do with the money from their green assets as per Green Camp's business plan (f-f-c-g.org/about).
This spiralled geometry is something that I have been working on withwww.inspiralledarchitect.com Charlie Hearn for the proposed Green Camp community center, "Dome-Tree" we are working on below:
ERICA EMM AND INDIAN YOGA SHALA PROJECT
I have introduced Charlie to Erica Emm, a former right hand of Sir Richard Branson who is now looking to create luxury eco Yoga Shalas in india with main Yoga Shala in the middle with the wellness, food and communal facilities and the surrounding eco-luxury domiciliaries.
I hope I may yet support them with a species matrix and food forest design for a an over-yeiding polyculture with self renewing fertility, a food forest which will allow us all to make use of thewww.biscript.com collaborative architecture platform of team members Connor and John.
Rafael very kindly lets me draw community centers all over his calculations potentially for future camps.
Perhaps even eventually we could work with Rafael to model his geometries in 3D onto the bimscript platform and use these as our Yoga Shala's / community centers ;) for instillation onto the let-us-learn platform introduced below.
I have also introduced Erica to team member Simon Lombardo and FFCG co-director Reuben Langdon in LA regarding the executive production work she does. We have all been discussing the production of a film about Nicolai Tesla which we will approach Elon Musk with also including the ECAT in the hope he will want to create wireless power plants with us.
LET US LEARN let-us-learn.org
After my recent trip to Morocco I was really motivated to rekindle an old relationship with let-thelet-us-learn.org project that seeks to bring 1000s of the world's best teachers to learners and teachers in the areas around the world that need the education most through a 3D virtual world, game like environment. Simulations are run in the environment where kids and very importantly teachers (who lack the info in these regions as well) can explore these 3D interactive environments with their Avatars and meet with those Avatars controlled by the very best teachers the planet has to offer, You can hear each-other's voice and even see faces. We have thought this would be a good place to start building and designing our Green Camp and community centers.
INTRODUCING LET US LEARN DIRECTOR DENISE (pic. above center)

THE HARMONIC CODE
password : investinharmony
Harmony Systems is a project created to evolve and harmonise the the world of digital microelectronics through the use of Natures mathematics of harmony. This project was born out of a very simple but powerful idea: The Universe and Nature have underlying harmonic mathematical laws that govern structure, growth and relationships of all things and fundamentally make it all work.
ADVANTAGES OVER THE CLASSICAL BINARY SYSTEM
- THE CODE USES LESS ENERGY Inbuilt properties of the «minimal form” are used to reduce energy consumption in electronic memory as well as to greatly reduce power dissipation, particularly, in ROM. For the case p=1 the energy consumption could be reduced up to 1.5 times for the case p=2 more than 2 times.
- THE CODE IS 99.98% ERROR FREE A property of self-synchronization, which is inherent in the minimal forms of all the Fibonacci p-codes and codes of the golden p-proportion for the cases p> 0. This property provides an effective solution for synchronizing serial transmis- sion of bits 1 and 0.
- continuous error detection for all phases of the transfer, processing and storage of information in the microchip.
- detection of errors as they occur and their correction by means of repeating the micro operation.
- blocking the passage of erroneous information for further processing, which prevents the execution of false commands.
- the detection of errors in the Fibonacci and golden representations is realized in parallel data transmission.
- the system for error detection is simple for technical implementation and does not significantly affect the speed of information processing in the microchip.
By using natures laws of harmonic mathematics to evolve the binary code into the”Harmonic” code we get a digital system that can detect up to 99.98% of all kinds of errors in its code and arithmetic operations without additional equipment, has the potential to be much more energy efficient and is also self synchronising.
INTRODUCING HARMONIC CODE PROJECT LEADER ANTON KONONOV
Anton is an old friend with whom I worked on lobbying the South African government to introduce hemp production in South Africa, Cape Town where he, his wife and young child all live still. Anton is a renowned visionary artist (www.antonkononov.com) producing music, art, video and animations based on the sacred harmonic principles of form and function.
Anton is looking for an organisation to take on the baton of this work and run with it as the foundation is essentially simple but 99.98% perfected.
Anton's work as a creative director (www.i-am.pro) recently completed a 3D virtual reality immersive experience in a hall of mirrors for Rosatom's, the Russian national nuclear regulatory body's 70th anniversary. The experience simulated set of events during a nuclear chain reaction at the nuclear scale (video below).
I was informed about a Tesla film project by team member Debbie and made contact with the writer Daniel Vujic who graciously shared with me their script and investment deck. I wrote with the intention to explore using the film to teach the world about Tesla's world wireless power transmission system and to use the opportunity to make friends with Elon musk, approaching him to finance the film and tell a story that educates the world about the namesake of his Tesla Motors. I hoped that we could thereby discuss the world wireless system and the reconstruction of that system using ECATs to create local wireless power networks, using harmonic geometries so these fields were not harmful to the organic life forms in the region that the wireless ECAT power plants were: what community would be left to spend the revenues derived therefrom at the Green Camp community centre as per the community participatory planning methods ;)
To cut a long story short, the project needed so many changes that I needed to start a new one which basically means re-writing Tesla's autobiography into a screenplay with a few story telling mechanisms of Tesla writing to the future to teach a descendant about what he should do to be ready for what his time was not ready for: We have looked at 3D 360 VR technologies in discussion with team member Simon and his super computers at 20th Century fox (fastest and cheapest CG pipeline in Hollywood), creating a simulator that models Tesla Physics, ECAT physics and the streamline principle of team member Jayden Harman (www.paxscientific.com). In the film the story will have Tesla telling his story through the letters and then teaching the character about how his system works. The future character just so happens to be the perfect person to build the physics sim and he is able to model the physics Tesla is talking about and that is the system we use to create the CG for the film and we build it with the finance for the film. Then the film story invites the world to design the new paradigm on the simulator and in real life we launch a simulator that models the ECAT physics, Tesla resonance physics :: streamline principle. Please Let-us-learn.org kind of thing! I'll get the script finished and see what you (and Keanu Reeves) thinks of it all.

SKYLIFTER SIMULATOR UPDATE
Last month I met with team member Jeremy Fitton and we are meeting again next week to discuss a the crowdfunding or crowd financing campaign of the Skylifter simulator which will allow us to build and test various sky lifter designs in different conditions and hopefully run a design competition for the ultimate infinite range, greenest and safest mode of air transport: a solar skylifter with a habitat onboard that provides for the needs of the crew and is able to perform basic humanitarian services.
At Resurgence magazine's fundraiser I met George Carivalis who works withwww.seedrs.com/ and I have opened up a task card on the Kerika scrumboard to review our crowdfunding ideas with him.
Jeremy introduced me to Paul Adams (introduced below) with whom he is working on an airship museum at the world's first intercontinental airport in the UK at Cardington. Paul also has an airship project introduced below:
INTRODUCING PAUL ADAMS
Paul Adams is a 20-year veteran of the airship industry. Adams began his career in the position of junior ground crew and advanced to achieve the position of chief pilot, one of the very few people to have achieved this level of advancement in the industry. As chief pilot, he was responsible for the operation of multi-million dollar contracts and won two company awards for the performance.
He has amassed over 6500 hours flight time (PIC) in airships on both civilian and military contracts. Recently Adams has been fulfilling the roles of planning and project management on projects including some of the most advanced airships built to date.
Paul's Atlas cargo airship (pdf attached) has now won the support of a financial backer in the form of a first customer however they are looking for more for different applications of the airship.

OPERATION MILAGRO (PDF attached)
Please get your networks ready for #givingtuesday, Dec 1st, to send out the Sea Shepherd campaign to save the last #97Vaquitas dolphins by patrolling their legally protected waters. Illegal fishing still takes places in the small area these very advanced beings call home and as a result they are being caught in the nets and driven to extinction fast.
We will follow up with a special thread dedicated to getting support to save this incredible species.
Thank you for your time, presence and continued support for these necessary cleaner, kinder, egalitarian solutions working to provide for all of our needs harmlessly, or to the benefit of all beings.
