Energy Flow Through Our City
when thinking about the transformation and flow of energy throughout our society, i started asking myself what KIND of energy are we talking about??
I then thought of this idea of the exchange of positive and negative energy. NOT a scientific exchange, but rather a social exchange.
What examples of negative energy are happening in our world? Hurricane Katrina, Tsunami, Iraq War, Global Warming, Abuse, Poverty, Homelessness....
What examples of positive energy are counteracting them? Brad PItt's services in New Orleans, Tsunami Aid, Shelters, "Going Green"...
We see the aforesaid energy exchanges as somewhat obvious. However, this positive and negative energy exchange occurs in small every day matters. Buy your clothes at one store and some of the profits go to the fight against breast cancer or buy the red ipod and support aids research. even by simply putting a " Support Peace" sign on your lawn or on the back of your car sends out some energy-not necessarily a tangible energy that you can point out say, through money donations- but an energy nonetheless.
Whenever there is a source of negative energy in our world,it seems we come together to produce a positive one to counteract it-not SOLVING the negative problem immediately ( we still are battling breast cancer, mind you)-but through our positive energy (Hope?) we maintain a feeling that its possible.
