“I am interested in proving the hyper-loop concept: supplying things and transporting people via a magnetic vacuum tube. It’s very expensive to build but then very inexpensive to operate. Objects wlil move up to 700 miles per hour. As long as it’s straight, you can put it anywhere, in the ocean, in the sky. A friend of Elon Musk is building one in Dubai. You can get anything built in Dubai.”

I have taken measures to shield myself for expenses. I will be able to do what I want to do. I’m a Republican but this whole regime scares me. There is no left way or right way but the moderates don’t band together. I would like to be able to see creative people be creative. We’ll see how the government responds to that.

“One person’s voice gets lost, but several people’s voices are heard. Right now I am involved in taking care of my mother. But I can see getting involved in community projects, not politics, to create change.”

Alan, retired federal contractor, Gainesville FL

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
