Traditional agriculture uses about 70 percent of the water on our planet. That’s alarmingly high number, especially when one considers how irreplaceably important the water is to all life surrounding us.

Fortunately, we have two significantly more water-efficient alternatives at our disposal. Hydroponics and aeroponics. The hydroponics is roughly 70 percent more efficient than old-fashioned water hogging while aeroponics is another 70 percent more efficient than hydroponics.

Thus, if we use aeroponics for agriculture, we can drop water usage (wastage) from 70 % to 6 % which would be quite a saving.

When we conceptualise reality as an ever-changing now, all those “nonsensical” confusing things about time such as time dilation, paradoxes of time travel and so on, disappear. Therefore, when thinking physics, we should stop thinking of time as a linear dimension and think of it in terms of rates of change instead. The universe will make a lot more sense.

Let’s get it straight. The usual way we perceive time is wrong! Time as we observe it is more or less just a sophisticated way of conceptualising the relative rates of change of different processes in Universe. As a matter of fact, we live in an “ever-changing now.” Time, as a line we travel along, is simply a mathematical abstraction that helps us understand the world. All of the existence is contained within “now.”  The future and the past are not “places” that physically exist. The future is a prediction, and the past is a memory. Nothing more.

We live on a planet where nearly one billion people are constantly hungry, yet we already produce more than enough food to feed the world. According to the Institute for Food and Development Policy, there is roughly 1.9kg (4.3 pounds) of edible goodness for every person per day. If we break it down further it’s about 1.1kg (2.5 pounds) of grain, beans, and nuts coupled with 0.45kg (1 pound) of meat, milk, and eggs; and another pound (0.45kg) of fruits and vegetables for everyone. So why so many people still starve? Is it really necessary?

About 70 percent of US foodstuff’s final retail price comes from transportation, storage, and handling, rather than from the actual food production. If it seems too much consider this. In average, American food travels around 2,500 kms (1,500 miles) before being consumed. According to some statistics a typical US meal contains about five ingredients grown in other countries.
