When you think about it it’s truly amazing how far humans have come in their planning when it comes to building their cities and infrastructure. Today we have GPS GIS systems telling us elevations and where the big flood zones are or where they might appear. Generally speaking this works pretty well, and he gives us a really good idea of what is coming in the future helping us predict the 50 year flood, or the hundred year proverbial flood. Knowing this information we know how to build runoff channels diverting the water away from structures in areas where people live.
Not only are we doing this here but they are doing it in places around world, sharing our technology and information in this regard. No, not every civilization listens and there is always some crony capitalism going on and things are built where they shouldn’t be or the warnings go unheeded. Nevertheless things are working out fairly well, but I’d say it’s time to take this to a whole new level, up the ante, and know the future of where the water will go, where the flooding will occur, and how the patterns of erosion will change in that regard.
There was an article in Science Daily on August 11, 2012 titled; “NASA Conducts Airborne Study of Colorado Landslide,” which brings up a very interesting concept that I don’t believe NASA has considered. Let me explain.
It is my contention that we can use fractal mathematics, Stephen Wolfram mathematics, and the NASA studies of erosion patterns, along with satellite photos of the Earth and Mars to develop a relevant predictable set of rational probabilities of future erosion patters, delta river outlet patterns, and in doing so, we can predict where mineral deposits are, and reconstruct the past to such an accurate point as to see it all without time – and easily model the past, present, and future. I am so sure of this that I had to tell you about it.
Being able to do this might help us determine where and how to build a Mars space colony, where the safest place to build a village at the foot of a mountain might be, and use this forensic mathematical data to know those realities without regard to the variable of time. In doing this and using these strategies we will save lives, save money, and save ourselves a world of headache during a natural disaster such as a big flood. Indeed it is my hope that you will please consider all this and think on it.
