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)

Resilience and Creativity

Resilience correlates closely with resourcefulness which is intimately tied to problem solving. The more at ease we are in uncertainty, the more open we are to possibility. Uncertainty thus is a wellspring for creativity.

The exploration of the relationship of resilience and creativity is another great frontier. Clearly, they are reciprocal. Resilience correlates closely with resourcefulness which is intimately tied to problem solving. The more confident we are that we can cope with uncertainty, the more open we are to possibility.

I have consistently verified this principle in my own practice. When I am in a BHI state of heightened vitality, exuberance, connection, relaxation, and flow, good ideas naturally bubble up. They come from everywhere. I cannot resist them. This sense of deep connection I have found is an important source of creativity.
