No need for collapse. Add overunity ("free energy") and the cost of things dissipates to zero. Check out My blogs. Yes, overunity exists - in at least one technology called electrogravitics (EG).
EG not only offers overunity but gravity control, and is a negentropic source, drawing on the "dark" energy Our universe is composed mostly of. Cooling rather than heating is the signature of its use.
It is non-polluting, too.
I started a petition to bring this tech out of black projects where it has been for over 50 years and hope You consider signing it and sending the link to others:
You may want to check out My thread suggesting that these don't have it quite right...
Somehow it wound up in the "Extinction" forum - this forum is very confusing to Me. LOL!
I only just joined a week or so ago, and only just now, as I recall, read this 2009 comment from you. So this very, very late reply. I hope you still remain around, and actually read it. In the meantime if you wish to take me on as a "friend", then you "ask" me. And, almost assuredly you will have my acceptance.
I, by now, know both of the above, before even joining here. Still very important "stuff", though if not already gone, Jaques won't stay physically with us "forever", his memory and thereby his continuing influence may, at least for a time, of course.
Anyway, best to you, in goodwill and carItas,

Yes, I am still around and I do agree with you that Jaques will not stay with us forever, but then who does ??
Wishing you a fun stay here at WS2012 and hope that you get to contribute as well. Namasté, Peter
