To make things interesting and to encourage as many responses as possible, I offered a prize from our CD library. We received imaginative and resourceful responses from almost every corner of the globe. The answers evaluated the problem from a variety of perspectives including switching to other kinds of fuel, inventions that more effectively dismantle metals, replenishment of coral beds by submersing material (cars) that will enlarge their environment, remanufacturing steel to reinforce bridges and other infrastructure projects, remaking used steel into wind turbine blades, building mass transit commuter trains, using vehicles for every purpose imaginable from low cost housing to elaborate art projects, and even blasting them into space in hopes that a more advanced race will find them and take care of the problem for us.
I had imagined a one or two paragraph response from Gaia, in which case I would have posted the response in my newsletter, but as always, her elegant answer was filled with imaginative simplicity, trust in humanity and so much more. Here is Gaia’s answer in its entirety. ~ Pepper Lewis
The most pleasant time to consider a problem is before it becomes a problem, or better yet, when it is not your problem. Another good time is when a variety of solutions are present, and such is the case with the automobile. It is a good idea at the outset of any exploration to acknowledge that the subject of inquiry (or problem) is also part of the solution. As another example of this concept, we might note that although diseased cells might pose a serious problem, the intelligence inherent in healthy cells might provide a solution. Therefore, as we begin our exploration, please take a moment to acknowledge just how important an invention the automobile has been, particularly during the last fifty years. The automobile has facilitated individual mobility, increased man's ability to make job related tasks easier, furthered the exploration of remote places, and much more. It will continue to be humanity's favored tool of transportation for a few more years, but not too many.
The automobile is already beginning to yield its noble position as a primary stakeholder in the global economy. This trend will continue and will further deteriorate interest in next year's model and the one after that. Even hybridized vehicles will lessen in popularity, at least until a vehicle that is powered by a unique and different fuel emerges on the common market. The true successor of the automobile will be a smaller, pod-like vehicle that can be piloted by one or more individuals traveling in the same pod, in other words, the driver need not be the one seated in the driver's seat given today's configuration; a passenger could become the pilot [driver] at any time even once the vehicle has been engaged and without the need to change seats. All seats will be 'driver enabled' and a simple computer will transfer command from one to another. Our pod-vehicle will be able to 'daisy chain' onto other pods to create a small-scale version of a mass transit system. Pods will have built in navigation systems so that as each pod nears its destination it will separate from the others, semi-automatically at first and automatically as advances in the vehicle industry continue to unfold. Although these vehicles will still require a pilot, 'driving' as it is understood today will be virtually obsolete. But we are getting a little ahead of ourselves as we have not yet dismantled the old in favor of the new.
Already there is a small decrease in the number of individual vehicles on the road, and fewer vehicles are being purchased and/or repaired. The worldwide popularity of the automobile will make it the most likely target of increased fees and taxations on both local and national levels. The financing of newer and more efficient toll roads that can accommodate present and future vehicles will be funded at least in part by these additional or increased fees. The cost of fuel will rise and fall many times leaving the average consumer dazed as to what to expect next. The more creative minds have already turned their attention elsewhere, therefore newer models will offer less features and incentives than those of previous years. In order to reduce the cost of living, an average family may downsize to one vehicle and an average student might forego a vehicle altogether in favor of their tuition. Automobile sharing arrangements will gain in popularity such that insurance companies will advertise their willingness to discount premiums when drivers choose this feature. Steel from obsolete and “totaled' vehicles will continue to be compressed and condensed, most of it being shipped to countries whose cost of labor allows for profitable reworking of these metals. And then, suddenly and at long last, just as the Iron Age and other ages before it succumbed, the Age of Steel will yield to the next and number its days as short. Not every theory or solution is spiritual, but everything that is spiritual is solution-oriented. Bear this in mind as we consider the age-old alchemical theory of converting lead into gold. While the initiatic journey has been known to reveal many mysteries, the process by which lead can become gold is a creative one that involves transmutation under the more expansive laws of physics. In other words, when higher laws act upon lower laws, the lower laws become attracted (or attached) to the higher laws. This otherwise use of the Law of Attraction will bind an obsolete thing or thought with one of a higher order for the purpose of advancing a more creative need or desire.
As the desire to emerge from under the weight of the automobile (financially and otherwise) becomes paramount, creativity will surge within minds that lend themselves to such a task. The result will be a series of successful experiments, particularly if minds that have already been working on space-age projects lend their support. Currently this is not the case and competition between scientific frontiers threatens the future of both. To simplify the subject, the emergence of new alloys that are environmentally sustainable and economically feasible will make the automobile worth more in its recycled state than in its previous new or used condition. While this development is not near enough time-wise to mark on your calendar, it is worth mentioning and is indeed just rounding the corner of the next obsolete thought.
These new alloys will be excellent conductors of electrical and magnetic properties. They will also adhere well to some non-metallic (not plastic) substances. While most current alloys are carbon based these are not, making them the first in a new family of alloys that feature crystalline intermetallic compounds – a solution whose constituent elements has not been previously combined and does not follow the ordinary rules of valency. Where previous alloys have required strength (such as that found in steel) current needs will favor eutectic alloys, or those with a lower melting and freezing point. Such alloys will also have better physical characteristics than their predecessors, such as a much higher resistance to corrosion. While it would be unfair to remove the mystery from the human discovery process, it is fair to say that once a set of desired characteristics is entered or programmed into the equation, the result will be the same as that which allows lead to become gold. It goes without saying that these alloys must be light in weight, quite strong, and able to sustain high temperatures. A second look at beryllium and niobium would be an excellent place to begin. At this point it may become necessary to study and then reveal the findings of the few who have been included in the knowledge associated with prior spacecraft interventions, otherwise known as ET technology, for that which will take you into space came from there first.
Quite obviously, the solar system contains the same material as is found on earth, but in different quantities and in unique combinations. Some of these combinations have 'landed' on earth, and by one means or another new material has become available. Technology regarding some of these materials has eluded those who have studied it, but that is directly attributable to the secrecy that has surrounded and protected certain events and processes. Matters have changed substantially in this regard, particularly given the economics of the day. Currently, there is a branch of the military that is at least partially dedicated to civilian pursuits and crossover projects. These programs and those who manage their resources have a greater range of freedom with which to explore new ideas, particularly those that are born in the genius of the young mind, which dwells in this moment and the next more often than other minds do. Those whose minds wander the corridors of the gaming technology, particularly within 3D and holographic environments are prime targets and highly recruitable.
Younger minds, particularly those that carry more ET genetic material have a tendency to bend dimensionally, rather than to the left or the right where the brain is concerned. While the left and the right brain have been known to argue and resist one another in a results oriented environment, a dimensional mind will yield a more natural, economic and expansive result. Why? Dimensional minds are more harmonic and expositive than linear minds; they see not only the current horizon but the next one as well. These 5D minds are your future as well, as your current minds would defeat you otherwise and humanity would become obsolete within a few more generations. Another way to put this is that humanity's genetic future requires an influx of something else from somewhere else. The pathways taken by younger minds will be different than those that have already been explored, therefore the same question will be posed in a variety of different ways, each one leading down (or through) a different path and yielding a new and different result. Some of these results combined with our earlier discussion on practical alchemy and given the additional ET perspective will birth at least four new sciences within the next two generations. Two of these will be 'edge sciences' and at the forefront of productive and economic revitalization. Two others will become viable explorative sciences that are more adaptable to environments such as those found on the moon and on other celestial bodies [for those familiar with other Gaia material, more on this can be found on the 2009 & Beyond CDs].
And yet we will still be left with excess material in the form of too many vehicles, and what shall we do with them? As time hastens forward you will take the problem to task in ways that will be practical at first, then useful, and finally exemplary. Like other problems, you cannot wish it away nor point fingers away from you. Desire is the cause, intention the effect and creativity the fuel that will accelerate the resulting ideas and actions. As you might already imagine, steel from some of the surplus automobiles will be reforged and shaped in order to reinforce the needs of an aging infrastructure including bridges, commuter trains, airplanes and even additional compartment for the original space station and the one that will follow. While wind technology will not be long lasting, it will be the bridge to other explorations and will require its share of steel.
Eventually, new forms of technologies called aspect or aspected technologies will arise and quickly gain in popularity. Based upon this particular aspect technology, which will be derived from the alchemy of metallurgy, most of the components (metal and otherwise) associated with automobiles will be reduced to a reusable material that resembles metallurgic compost. This newly composted material will aid in the construction of new housing models, reducing consumption of other more costly and less resourceful material. It will become quite fashionable to live in these futuristic 'model homes' and for a time (while it lasts) it will be a wise commodity investment as well.
Although we have not made the subject of carbon credits or green engineering a part of this work, it is worth mentioning that at least for a time some of the world's economies will be tied to a tiered and structured currency based upon the sale and trade of carbon credits and other biologically exchangeable material. Sustainable engineering in reciprocal environments will be another emerging bioscience and an important one at that. This science will find that even where artificial material is concerned, some is more environmentally adaptable than others. These newer man-made materials will offer themselves in ways and uses that are impossible today.
All things and all people respond to both higher and lower laws, regardless of their orientation in heaven or earth. Higher laws are made of a lighter substance and therefore are more evolution oriented. Lower laws, or man made laws, are enacted to serve a present purpose but rarely a future one. The Law of Attraction, all too often reduced in scope, is a great binder of obsolete thoughts and things. It, along with other laws of higher order is capable of advancing and directing the purposeful needs and desires of present and future man. Through creative progression, man's ability to transport himself from here to there (regardless of where that is) will be represented by the ingenuity he brought from the stars and will now take him beyond them.
