SAFE G: Empowering Resilient Communities


Mission. To empower local communities to design immediate and effective SAFE G solutions that implement optical fiber wired to the home and office. Local taxpayers and ratepayers are entitled to this alternative to wireless, because they have already paid for it. Please see: Irregulators v. FCC.

5G/AI/Internet of Things Juggernaut presents an imminent threat. The harms to our community’s physical and mental health, the local environment, violations of citizen’s rights to due process, property, and personal privacy are foreseeable and preventable. The threat is especially dangerous to our children, elderly people, those with special sensitivities, disabled persons with chronic illnesses, caregivers, and our economically disadvantaged and minority communities that have no escape in their homes or workplaces.

Remedy: Community Empowerment: An effective remedy begins with widespread education and training in a proven system of wise leadership, community organization, team building, and negotiation. With this purpose we have created a 5G Dojo to support local communities around the world that are facing similar challenges. The key is to share negotiation successes and practical experience, so these lessons can be immediately deployed within the network. Equally essential is to fortify community-wide resilience rapidly and effectively. (See: 5 Minutes toResilience)

Neuroplasticity and Resilience

Neuroplasticity and resilience are complementary and synergistic, both positively and negatively.

Neuroplasticity and resilience are closely linked both negatively and positively. One study states: “Results from recent clinical and preclinical studies investigating the molecular and cellular targets of mood stabilizers and antidepressants suggest that a reconceptualization about the pathophysiology and optimal long-term treatment of recurrent mood disorders may be warranted. It is proposed that impairments of neuroplasticity and cellular resilience may underlie the pathophysiology of mood disorders, and further that optimal long-term treatment for these severe illnesses may only be achieved by the early and aggressive use of agents with neurotrophic/neuroprotective effects.” Conversely, resilience is coming to be viewed as a neuroplastic process. In the words of Eric Nestler, MD, Ph.D. “The most important and interesting principle is that resilience is not a passive process. It’s not that the mice that are resilient simply don’t show the bad effects of stress that are seen in susceptible mice. Some of those kinds of changes are seen, but by far the most predominant phenomenon is that the resilient mice show a whole additional set of changes that help the animal cope with stress.” In other words, susceptibility to stress, a brain that’s not resilient, is a failure of plasticity.
