Natural systems: The fusion of technology with Nature
Natura: Artis Magistra
Based on the same concept: Reflectors, or the sun itself draw in and superheat air molecules, which move through turbines within the pyramid – generating electricity
Aquaponics is a soil-less farming system where fish & marine waste is pumped into plant substrates without the use of large amounts of land & water. The plant roots absorb these nutritive substances, in turn purifying the water for the fish.
This system can be used in a vertical farm to both rear fish and grow large amounts of vegetables without any waste products, pesticides & fertilizers. Individuals are also utilising Aquaponics in cargo containers parked a few km from restaurants – delivering fresh produce daily to large cities (which are hopelessly dependent on constant food shipment from farms, thousands of miles away).
Aeroponics is the system where air vapor laden with nutrients is diffused to plant roots inside a sealed system utilising no soil whatsoever.
It is being considered for use in the ISS wherein astronauts can grow their own food instead of relying on supply shipment missions.
Mushrooms are a unique species which can be utilised for a variety of concerns.
Its mycelial roots can hold 30 thousand times its weight, thus can be used for preventing soil erosion.
The substance produced while colonizing corncobs produces an efficient precept to ethanol which can be utilised for energy production or powering vehicles
Thus they are ideal for cleaning oilspills, chemical spills, and other dangerous wastes from factories, rubbish dumps & treatment plants.
Furthermore a mushroom species discovered recently from the Amazon (Pestalotiopsis microspora) can safely decompose plastic within a matter of days.
Moreover, mushrooms share the same pathogens as humans, breathe oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide as we do, so it is not surprising that many mushroom species have developed substances with direct anti-viral and anti-bacterial activity on HIV, smallpox, hepatitis, influenza, e.coli & staphylococci amongst many other diseases.
The most effective of systems are already in place around us and within us – they speak a hushed tone..
Science is humanities’ ears, its function is to listen and re-apply – if it starts speaking instead of listening, it will inevitably go in circles wasting valuable time.
Science’s evolution lies only in its humility to Nature.
