Well, water is one of the main basic needs of any individuals. Its not possible to live without water. So, its our responsibility to save this precious energy source.

Jody Bruce

This is a great topic. We need water to live. Yet we horde it and fight over it just like it was gold. Really thou, its more valuable than gold. Trying drinking gold in a desert one day. You will see what I mean. Another resource we fight over like water is energy. Look at how we treat oil. Hmm what is more valuable water or oil? Kind of makes you think. If we had unlimited energy we would have unlimited water. Look at all the oceans. We just need energy to boil all the salt out.

Well we do have free energy, it’s being hidden from you. Just so that the big energy companies can make $440 billion dollars off us. It’s true! I have spent the last 4 years researching and writing an audio book all about it. If you would like to have all the clean water you can drink plus free energy, check out this link. I promise you won’t be disappointed. Just grab a nice big glass of water before you do. I have over 102 free energy videos on my website. You will certainly work up a thirst watching them.

Thank you,
Jody Bruce


Homeowners, (fear of) property value vs. their debt.
As to maintain the property, for ultimate value.
"Maintain" --- same goes with their HIGH, CONSISTENT addiction of manicuring & diapering their (debt of) cars.

Repeatedly, when I commute through residential streets: For the watering of lawn -- individuals are seen, standing in a frozen position via holding hose.
Only the water moves.
As these humans are in an (unconscious?)aura of dreaming?
Or recalling their day, of what they did/didnt do.
Just staring, eyes not moving.

As my above theory will repeat, via their behavior.


Water: The Epic Struggle for Wealth, Power and Civilization. … I rise to salute anyone who makes the time and spends the effort to write, especially a book. … On the other hand I notice increasingly I find it difficult to engage in many of the newer book offerings as they seem to parrot one another.

Maybe I am being overly critical or unduly naive, or more honestly venting my personal frustration, but many of the books authored of late seem to be intent on re-establishing what I call the circular nature water plays in all aspects of our life and environment.

How does one discuss any aspect of energy without including water…? How does one discuss any aspect of place of residence without including water…? How does discuss any aspect about industry, agriculture or a host of other topics without including water…?

Whether acknowledged for not … water … holds a prominent if not the paramount position in each of these discussions, yet for most of us, we know little or nothing about it…?
