When it comes to travel, it’s not getting easier, it’s making and damaging our living environment, it is more stressful, it costs too much in terms of energy consumption and we’re doing more of it.

Little do we understand the speed of ourselves in space? Held by gravity and magnetic forces on earth we all travel at 1,600 km per hour on earth. (994 mph) The earth then travels at 100,000 km per hour (621,369,000 mph) around the Sun. Our Earth’s galaxy travels at 100,000 km per hour.

Has global mobility and speed improved around the world? What causes our human desire to move around so much? For example migrations across country borders has increased by 42% from 150 million to 214 million (OECD) Students attending colleges in other countries increased from 2.1 million in 2002 to 3.4 million and is projected to grow to 8 million by 2020. (LA Times)

The time taken to circumnavigate the globe in 1522 (Magellan) was three years while in 1969 Apollo 10 did it in an hour traveling at 24,790 mph in a vacuum. One still travels on our roads when attempting to reach a capacity per lane per mile of 35 mph. U.S. High Speed Rail has yet to top speeds of 200 mph (322km/h) on class 9 infrastructures, while commercial air flight, airport to airport, averages 440 mph. If we consider all aspects of this air flight “communication” process we find 5.25 hrs not unreasonable from point a to point b by dividing this into the miles traveled, we find a speed of about 133 mph as the “Real Speed” result. Average Container Ship speeds are 23 knots (26.5 mph) without time taken for loading and unloading cargo to discover “Real Speed” comparison.

The distances traveled during our USA lifetime, if one dares call ourselves an “average” human being, one can historically assume that in 1850 if one walked at 4 mph a day over a fifty-year lifespan one would have traveled 73,000 miles. If one also assumes Richard Florida’s calculations in his book “The Great Reset” and examines three characteristics of increase in average speed, travel miles per day and life expectancy in the year 2000, the same one hour of travel in 2000 at an average speed 75 mph, traveling 75 miles per day, with 80 year life expectancy one would travel 2,190,000 miles. Based on current trends and with similar assumptions if one calculates for 2050 the result would be – average speed 225 mph – traveling 225 miles per day x 90 year life expectancy = 7,391,250 miles.

With ET3 these calculations for the year 2050 are extraordinary. At an average speed of 350 mph  – traveling 350 miles per day x 90 year life expectancy = 46,628,750 miles, a six fold increase over status quo travel miles. In 2050 it will be exponential because the ET3 capsules in the evacuated tubes, magnetically levitated, can also travel at 4,000 mph without friction or inclement weather from portal to portal across all the continents on the globe. Freedom to travel at any time chosen will provide liberty to all nations citizens adopting this mode of transportation. ET3 thus allows for a maximum time spent in the capsule while in transit to become no greater than four hours to reach anywhere on earth.

ET3 travel will bring about a new radical thinking about life, patterns of work and numerous opportunities for entrepreneurship, but most of all it should bring peace between all cultures. The implications are numerous. The current mobility protocols are centered about human vehicular control, lack of safety, and the impacts are damaging the air we breathe with green house gas emissions into our atmosphere. Reliance solely on fossil fuels for energy requirements driving movement patterns is the status quo but an unacceptable solution for energy use.

The proposed ET3 transportation technology movement system will not only vastly improve the transportation of goods and people for mobility but will permeate and impact virtually every other activity condition, procedure, regulation and public policy blustering. The new flows of humanity and goods ties directly into ecological region economies, people’s livelihoods, and a sense of well-being in a chosen place of residence. This is where freedom is born and exists in reality. This is where fluidity is optimized for consistency with radical shifts in logistical supply and demand marketplaces.

On one hand ET3 has a similarity to the bio-molecules mobility found in all life’s natural flows of movement. On the other hand large-scale seamless integration in ET3 mobility could be detrimental to existing village, town, city and regional governments. Not only because of it’s technological readiness and practical performance application but rather to the mental adjustment challenge for its organizational insertion.

According to Thomas Frey, a futurist, he has postulated the following scenarios that could possibly occur: –

1. “Excessive high debt, and tax rates skyrocket to compensate for it, both people and businesses will vote with their feet and move away. Entire countries may experience a massive talent and brain drain as a result.

2. Sovereign nations at war will see increasingly high numbers of people deserting to avoid the conflict.

3. Communities with the greatest job opportunities will see their populations mushroom over night. Similarly, areas with large numbers of layoffs and dying industries will turn into ghost towns equally as fast.

4. Increased mobility, people will be reluctant to make long-term commitments. Mortgages will need to include a dropout clause, insurance, for sudden exit.

5. Communities will increasingly be judged by their “freedom index” (drug laws, crime rates, police presence, etc.), their “happiness index” (cultural activities, overall friendliness, social tolerance, etc.), and their “opportunity index” (statistical odds of finding new opportunities when old ones go away.

6. A single news story about better living conditions, healthier lifestyles, lower taxes, or ultra-engaging cultural events will cause hundreds, and perhaps thousands to move to new communities almost instantly.

7. Demographics shifts will be abrupt, hard to plan for, and will leave tremendous economic turmoil in their wake.

8. Countries will begin to compete for citizens, touting their strengths and benefits; at the same time trash-talking the countries they hope to draw from. For countries with rapidly declining populations, citizenship laws will be quickly revamped to make it easy and painless for people to claim new residency.

9. With increased transparency, virtually every governmental system will have to be reworked to include extra sensitivity to the fact that their actions could drive citizens away”.

However at this time of global financial crisis, point-to-point delivery of both animate substances (ex. Forest and Kelp) to the inanimate (ex. iron ore, and bauxite) material resource is required. Reduction in transportation energy cost and shorter distances for on-time delivery is now available. Lesser cost and shorter distances to transport raw form edibles and element substances to factories for product manufacturing conversion is essential. This over and above the need to engage the populous to service these needs for survival but also to apply labor applications to extract, convert and ship these resources of abundance for end users.

ET3 is a “lifeboat” for the all the world’s population. The vision it affords creates an immeasurable number of jobs and extraordinary wealth for all nations that enjoin in this new reality form of travel. Even if this new mobility is a double edged sword, it will allow people and goods to move easily, but will cause governmental measures to re-conceive their role in the flow of things that have been restricted and controlled in many forms of “straight jackets”.

The first partnership between corporations and government with any sovereign nation that adopts ET3’s super mobility technology, will enhance liberty of movement to engage face to face in the freedom of commerce. This is the formula for peace amongst nations.
