About Christopher

Bio

I have an extensive although nontraditional background ranging between development, management, sales (large and small), non-profit, purpose driven throughout (even with the not so inspiring). If it is desired I can supply a summarized or in-depth record of experience and learned events. If your interest involves my involvement with your effort, then I submit this: I am passionately searching for a way to take my recently found purpose (you can view it on my blog http://thefindingfiniteproject.wordpress.com) "do-able" meaning that I don't really care "how much" it brings in, as long as I can support my families actual "needs". I have not found that support as of yet. I am totally willing to re-channel my passion into something of yours, as long as it fits the basic impact model of my purpose's findings. I am also willing to temporarily tangent from my core mission, if it helps my overall mission, meaning that if I can learn or somehow collaboratively parallel our joint efforts so be it. I am also a passionate problem solver, if you have something that needs solving, call on me - paid or not paid I love to share creative solutions. If you are aware of the study behind "Human Design" I am: A Manifestor coupled by the traits of an Initiator - I will send you a copy of my design "map" if you wish.

Simon Sinek: Why good leaders make you feel safe
Dear Mr. Sinek, Why? Because I'm certain that by doing so - we would accomplish a few tremendously important world improving projects together. How? Connect and Collaborate with each other - first through a simple communication - then upon focused agreement, a series of (non-intrusive - to the rest of our daily lives) connections, conversations, and strategic actions. What? Accomplish one or more of several already prepared objectives that I've spent the last decade preparing. Imagine this: Albert Einstein had done well and stuck to his work as a patent clerk. Mahatma Gandhi won a landmark case which propelled his law career into a prestigious firm in London. Why did I offer this imagination? in hopes that regardless of my own request - you still allow your own keen analysis to view the changes made by your own success, to see the spark that's dimmed by so many other candles. Above all of the rest - you have my genuine appreciation for your shared wisdoms.

Richard Sears: Planning for the end of oil
Wow! As I start to write this I'm still trying to process the nearly overwhelming myriad of thoughts and emotions that were generated by watching your talk. To really begin I will summarize the reason for the content of the first sentence like this: I have spent the last 19 months discovering that the subject you just presented on is directly related to the built up experience - Purpose of my 43 years of life. The last thing in the world that I want to do is insult you and close the possible door between us. I found myself, throughout the almost seven minutes of your talk erratically going pole to pole from negative to positive, love to hate, and back in forth, leaving me with a confusing sense of urgency to contact you and discuss what I think is in part highly important (needed) and also the parts that are highly dangerous - in which for all of our good, I want to caution and maybe even add to your clearly illustrated brilliance. I apologize if this is confusing; it's a byproduct of me, you, and the context of your talk. I can honestly say that there are parts of your talk/study that I not only agree with but champion to the point of wisely altering the way I will go about delivering my message/study/work in the future. There are also those parts of your talk that concerned me greatly, I don't know you personally, nor your personal makeup so far as to what degree you believe in your work or its importance - and more to this specific point - the importance and impact of the message your conveying to the world. I sincerely hope that you are willing to be wrong, better still would be your willingness to adapt some of your stated hypothesis into something a little more symbiotic with my findings. I actually hope that I am the one who's mistaken, misdirected, (not saying that there has to be a "wrong") but in truth my equation seems realistically more probable, not as comparison, but as a closer predictability on our oil (fossil fuel) endgame. Please allow for contact

Donald Sadoway: The missing link to renewable energy
sorry I couldn't help myself. another question: If the electrons create enough energy to keep it liquid, how is it regulated? meaning - if the "electrons" are added by outside source can they be dimmed/regulated by input, or is the electron generation a by product of the elemental combination? if so, is that regulated by mass/volume of material?

Donald Sadoway: The missing link to renewable energy
Along with apologizing for some of my earlier concerns, which I sincerely hope you didn't take for anymore then an emotional primer, thats purpose was the possibility of your own breakthroughs, and my own psycho-babble. I wanted to ask a couple questions: Does this model offer a glimpse at a truly perpetual engine? which leads me to the second; Whats the loss in the cycle? meaning that with all natural things, if you pull something out; energy, motion, whatever - then something is depleted, whats depleted, how fast, and at what "true cost"? next question: because it seems like you are creating, basically, an "elemental fire" is there any concern of it become unstable (as in the setting all magnesium on fire, kind of unstable)? And lastly... for now: because the cycle produces enough energy to keep it all suspended as liquid - does it work as a vacuum, or in a vacuum?

Donald Sadoway: The missing link to renewable energy
Great and not so great. I want to applaud you for the tremendous work, it will probably be a key factor in saving us from a tremendous problem, one which is directly related to what I currently exhaust all of my time on, so this talk was a huge breath of relief. The not so great, is please rethink your powerful message to strongly include the great importance in drastic conservation efforts. PLEASE. It strikes me a little odd that you, a man that seems to have a phenomenal amount of intelligence, chooses to pronounce absolute importance in one thing (yours) and the dismissal of others (conservation, etc.) rather than the, what seems to be, wiser path of a collaboratively designed solution. With all due respect; It would sadden me greatly if it was purely derived from to ego, for two reasons: One, that kind of closed channeled behavior, as shown through history, has gotten in a lot of trouble - including the present, and two being that a person that has created or helped create (credit to your MIT team)what will probably turn out to be one of our ages most important creations, would hopefully be content with the realization of such an accomplishment. Back stepping a bit - you may wonder why, if I think this (your invention) is so important, why would I criticize? The answer is because I know its importance, and like the two reasons for my potential sadness, it like all things are easily disrupted by the sometimes dizzying power of the emotional self and the often accompanying fallout, e.g. ownership conflicts, missed danger warnings or causation elements not calculated due to financial or greed driven, etc. and the completely empathetic - selfless reason that I would hope you could appreciate and be satisfied by your own accomplishments. Either way, I hope you take this as a less than common communication of thanks and possible awareness to factors that may have been unable to fit in your tremendous intellect. I don't matter, but you do, hence the friendly offering

Jay Bradner: Open-source cancer research
Thank you for your work Dr. Bradner! A sideline thought: a great benchmark for human evolution catching up with the technology evolution would be when we realize how insane the idea of for-profit medical and health oriented businesses are, and that it would be logical observation by any non-human civilization that this industry would be one of a non-profit model. When did we start selling our health?
