Water in = water out, thus the lake exists
Thermal energy in = thermal energy out, thus
the watery planet exists
is paradox: energy is all forms and no form is energy. We deny reality
(the universal change) when we symbolize a form or group of forms as
of psychosis: energy is symbolised as petroleum.
we give each form a symbol according to its unique properties we are
better able to reflect reality and enjoy greater harmony with all.

live in uncertainly and cannot know the full potential. Our act of
observing affects the observed in ways we cannot know.
any moment only a trace amount of the potential is actualized or
realized. The vast bulk of the incredibly bounteous possibilities remain
unrealized. We are each sentient of only a trace amount that of that
which is realized.
awareness of the possibilities affects how the potential is manifest. In
other words our thoughts and feelings are actions within the universal
flux of potential actions. Example:
The rock is not moving and yet its potential to move

Give each form its own symbol so it can be more fully known. Do this and
our children can better know the bounteous nature of energy and enjoy
the vitality of its transformations.
