Don't Compete. Create...

    Competition and creativity . Sometimes they blur together. But in reality, they're different thought systems . Animals compete. T hey piss on each other's territories and raid each other's nests. We humans can do this too, if we so choose. In fact, we do it a lot. But the great thing we are going for us is the fact that we're imbued with the ability - to create a new from pure Thought. To pull new idea  out the ether and make them manifest in the physical world instead of having to rip them out of someone else fingers. When we compete, we aim to take from others what's already been created instead of creating something ourselves. This is not competing. This is creation... We can say the same for anyone at the upper level of their art, sport, craft. These people have risen above the competitive nature of the world and are straight up flowing with creative awesomeness. Life is Abundant... A quick look at history shows that mankind always kept moving forwar

Million mile Battery (Electric Cars)

After a year or so the battery starts to fade and the beast needs recharging more frequently. That is a nuisance, but a phone’s batteries can be replaced fairly cheaply—or the whole handset traded in for the latest model. An electric car, however, is a much bigger investment. And batteries are its priciest component, representing around 30% of an average mid-size vehicle. Apart from increasing the risk of running out of juice and leaving a driver stranded, a deteriorating battery quickly destroys a car’s second-hand value. To provide buyers with some peace of mind, carmakers guarantee their batteries, typically for eight years or around 200,000km. Producers are now, though, planning to go much further than that, with the launch of “million mile” (1.6m kilometre)  Elon Musk has hinted that Tesla, a Californian maker of electric vehicles of which he is boss, has a million-mile battery in the works. Rumours suggest this could be unveiled in September. And over in Detroit, General Motors (
