Conceptualization, design and building 900+ new Zero-CO2 cities (for 50,000 residents each, ie 45+million [m] residents total) in most countries of all six Continents, over the next 21 years. Each Utopia contains 18,000 homes, 16.2 million homes total. Each Utopia may also be associated with up to 10 Mini-Utopia-Villages [MUV] surrounding each Utopia, each MUV housing 100+ homes, ie 1,000+ homes/Utopia or 4,000+ total residents/Utopia, ie 3.6m residents in 900k homes. For a total of 49+m residents, involving 17.1m homes. Also 1.62m GaviHas may be associated with, but not necessarily located on or near, Utopia. Utopia are equipped to supply hydrogen fuel [HF] for hydrogen fuel cells [HFc] for:

  • 17.1m ZCy vehicles (including 5% are public vehicles [ZCpv]
  • 16m  Gavin Hawks &
  • 1.62m GaviHas

The maximum total number of HFc used over 21 years is: 34.72m, excluding replacements, returns and repairs [RRR], or


Conceptualization, design and building 256+ new Zero-CO2 cities (for 50,000 residents each, ie 11.25+m residents total) in most countries of all six Continents, over the next 21 years. Each Utopia contains 18,000 homes, (4.05 million Utopian homes total).

Each Utopia may also be associated with up to 10 Mini-Utopia-Villages [MUV] surrounding each Utopia, each MUV housing 100+ homes, ie 1,000+ homes/Utopia or 4,000+ total residents/Utopia, ie 3.9m residents in 225k homes. For a total of 15.15+m residents, involving 4.275m homes. Also 405k GaviHas may be associated with, but not necessarily located on or near any Utopia. Many Utopia are equipped to supply hydrogen fuel [HF] for hydrogen fuel cells [HFc] for:

  1.   4.275 ZCy vehicles (including 5% are public vehicles [ZCpv]),
  2. 4m Gavin Hawks &
  3. 405k GaviHas
plus

Another alternative to 644+ of the 900+ Utopia (Masdar equivalents) with 50,000 Ideal Customers/Utopia [U] (Populated by 33.75m) by:

Total USU + SSU + SU population 60m.  

Of course, some mix of U, SU and SSU can be considered. RDL's prelimnary proposal for the first five SSU is:

AlphaSSU in Panama Bay, including but not limited to [ibnlt] SuperSkyUtopia USU Ciudad de Shirltiti, for 1.5 million Ideal Customers 

BetaSSU in the English Channel over and connected with the Channel Tunnel

GammaSSU in San Fransisco Bay,

DeltaSSU Offshore of San Diego CA and

EpsilonSSU in Tokyo Bay. 

Total USU + SSU + SU + Utopia  population = 75.15m

Additional plans are on SkyUtopia .

Project 2 Design and build 50 Mother Hawks,[MH] pilotless aircraft to control pilotless, passenger (or freight only) carrying Gavin Hawks [GH], flying over most countries of all six Continents, in 21 years. Forward Planning: The estimate of 250 Mother Hawks (costing $3,472 million [m] to cover the entire World 24/7), with a team of three (for each of the 84 regions) with one in the air at all times. That was based on six FF powered aircraft, improving the remaining 244 with hydrogen fuel [HF], doubling the cost, to $6,832m but avoiding CO2 pollution, after the first 6 aircraft, two in the air at all times over the two regions in the UK. Landing and refueling would be required in 15 hours. 

If nuclear power [NP] were provided instead of HF, refueling could be extended to two months, on average, the team reduced to 1.05/region, with 50 aircraft, 48 in the air.  If the cost/MH were tripled from $14m/MH to $42m/MH, but reduced from 244 to 44 additional MH, the cost would be only $2,083m, saving $1,389m.)

Note: The figure of 50 MH is based on six FF MH (using fossil fuel [FF], as existing Global Hawks do). In this case, three MHs are required for each region (eg two regions are necessary for the United Kingdom, thus six MHs). Plus 1.05 nuclear fueled Mother Hawks [MHn] MH are required for each additional region, because very little time for refueling and a small time is allowed for maintenance and repair, therefore only an additional 44 MHn are necessary, ie a total of 50MH. 

Project 3: Design, build and market 32m (ie starting the first two or three years FF fueled, then the rest hydrogen fueled [HF]) Zero-CO2 GH, with electrically driven propellers and rotors driven to fly in the sky, (allowing for replacement every 10 years) replacing 132m new FF fueled cars (allowing for replacement every five years) for use on the roads the roads of most countries on all six Continents and (occupied) islands, by the end of 2030. 

Project 4: Design and build 42 (ground-based remote pilot/air-traffic-controller [PATC]) operating centers [PATCO] in ~one-fifth of the countries of the six Continents and islands.

Project 5: Train 4k PATC over 21 years, to control up to 16m GH with a maximum of 8m GH/day, at any one time, during their takeoffs, flights and landings.

Project 6: Design and build one, multiple-version GaviHas (Alpha, Beta and Gamma style motor homes, or public transportation vehicle [PTv])/one% of total population (by end of any given year) sold to & owned by Ideal Customers' [CICR] families in Utopia, ie up-to-1.8k/Utopium. (Eg For one Utopium, 50k residents, plus six-to-10 Mini-Utopia-Villages with 2,500 thousand [k] residents, so 52.5k/1k = 53 GaviHas/Utopia.)  That is: 3,360 in the UK and 47.198k GaviHas in the World. RDL expects that 10% of the GaviHas will be PTv, leaving 90% as privately used, ie 45% as their only private home, and 45% as their 2nd private home.  That splits GaviHas totals as follows:

  1. UK:
  2. PTv 336,
  3. only private homes 1,512,
  4. 2nd private homes 1,512, in addition to Ideal Customers' Utopia homes
  5. Worldwide:
  6. PTv  4,719,
  7. only private homes 21,239,
  8. 2nd private homes 21,239, in addition to Ideal Customers' Utopia homes
  9. Total GaviHas 47,198. 
  10. (A joint effort with Project 3, above, will include special GaviSuperSea Hawks, typically sea-going-hulled, double rotored, equipped as residences, carrying up-to-10 persons, and can take off and land vertically, from land or water.) 

Project 6 also includes:

  1. 100 GaviHas houses/Mini-Utopia-Village, with six-to-10 Mini-Utopia-Villages (ie 600-to-1,000 GaviHas for all Mini-Utopia-Villages associated with each Utopium) and
  2.  associated with Project 10 and Project 1, special versions of GaviHas  are designed as Alpha, Beta or Gamma type GaviHas, to provide two, four or six person residences on, up-to-2/3rds of the Project 10 farms, located within Utopia's walls, or on nearby land.

 Project 7: Please see Amalric III, [AIII] (Appendix III). One of the applications for AIIIs is to provide alternatives to: a) intercontinental, non-Zero-CO2 airplanes (which, according to Boeing, are never likely to be non-FF), for many millions of people, as

  1. troop transports
  2. cruise ships
  3. aircraft carriers and
  4. most shipping-container-freight-carrying ships -- which require over-six-foot-deep: navigating channels, rivers, canals, routes and harbors for shipping docks):
  5. in combination with large, up-to-2k, up-to-500-strong-GH-flocks and
  6. large convoys of up-to-600 AIIIs, stationed in mid-oceans to manufacture hydrogen and refuel up-to-2k flocks of up-to-1m GH carrying up-to-10m passengers each.

Project 8:  This new Real Div Lifestyles [RDL] Major Project 8, is planned for development of the GiaBat [GB], around six-inch wingspan, similar to the COMBAT, and the, six-foot wingspan, SuperGiaBats  [SGB]. Both may be designed to use a rotor rather than wings.  Several million GBs are planned and 100ks of SGB for home, factory, shop, military and police use. The SGBs, licensed to military and police use, are equipped with (relatively) small weapons designed to make a choice to disable (or kill) identified (and armed) terrorists and organized and petty criminals who refuse to disarm, surrender or be taken into custody. They may also launch armed attacks to destroy enemy activities, including offensive facilities such as:

    1. buildings
    2. fortifications
    3. vehicles
    4. ships
    5. submarine boats
    6. aircraft
    7. weapons (spears, axes, hatchets, clubs, coshes, hammers, bows and arrows, knives, hand-guns, grenades, tanks, cannon, car bombs, bazookas and roadside or land and under water mines) and
    8. missiles and
    9. bases connected (with production, launching, disbursing, firing and/or defending) therewith: SGBs working in teams with GB equipped to identify (faces of) people and offensive facilities, and to control and direct SGB.  Both types can controlled from (home, factory, shop, military and police) bases and/or carried by GaviHas, GH (or by Mother Hawks) for defense of Amalric IIIs, and flocks of   GH, on trips, or carrying troops on military missions).
This RDL Major Project 8 now includes GiaBats: (as of 20 October 2012.)

Project 9: The SoF is applied most strictly to Utopian Homes, Mini-Utopia-Villages and GaviHas ; but the handling of food in any house, hotel or restaurant can follow the same rules. If an RDL Delivery Bay is included in the home, and food is delivered from a supplier working with this SoF Project. In general, any supplier or deliverer of food will be supplied with the same procedures, equipment and training, designed to eliminate CO2 pollution all along the way, from gathering ingredients, processing and delivery anywhere in the World:  And, maximizing the production of tasty, healthy and easily served food, also according to local tastes and current availability of ingredients.

Project 10: is connected with:

  • Project 9 (concerned with production and delivery of food, according to Science of Food),

  • Project 1 (concerned with Utopian cities,

  • Project 6 (concerned with GaviHas , ie Alpha, Beta or Gamma style motor homes associated with Utopia or Mini-Utopia-Villages and Farms of the Future, where: "Rebecca Hosking ... explores ways of farming without using fossil fuel [FF]. With the help of pioneering farmers and growers, Rebecca learns that it is actually nature that holds the key to farming in a [low-labor] low-energy future."

Project 11: An extension of Project 10 to lead to astrophotography.

A new RDL Major Project 11 to honor Shirl vE. Embry

This project is mostly concerned with the future  of the late Shirl: the success of her goals for her son (and his and other people's children), who will grow up and become the next generations of the human population. They will have a pivotal position in determining the World's future.  Thus, Shirl's future becomes a large part of the future of the Earth's lifestyles, atmosphere, the human race, plants and animals.

Project 12:This is a Research and Development [R&D] Project, all related to the future of Shirl's goals, beyond (and well beyond) her short term accomplishments (ie during her own lifetime). Please note: There was not enough time for some of her goals to be thought through carefully by her, but she assigned some of them to GE for study. And, are now defined as areas for R&D, ie extra-stellar migration of homo sapien sapiens [hss] and instantaneous communications. See also:

"Quantum weirdness wins again: Entanglement clocks in at 10,000+ times faster than light

No matter how many times researchers try, there's just no getting around the weirdness of quantum mechanics.

In the latest attempt, researchers at the University of Geneva in Switzerland tried to determine whether entanglement—the fact that measuring a property of one particle instantly determines the property of another—is actually transmitted by some wave-like signal that's fast but not infinitely fast.

Their test involved a series of measurements on pairs of entangled photons (particles of light) that were generated in Geneva (satellite view at left) and then split apart by optical fiber to two villages 18 kilometers (11 miles) apart where the team had set up photon detectors. (In 2007, researchers transmitted entangled light 144 kilometers between two of the Canary Islands.)

The idea in the new experiment is that the photons in each entangled pair are hitting the distant detectors simultaneously, so there's no time for them to exchange a signal. By comparing results from the two detectors, the researchers determined whether the photons were entangled or not, using a test known as Bell's inequalities.

The photons were indeed entangled, the group reports in Nature. But in reality, no experiment is perfect, so what they end up with is a lower limit on how fast the entanglement could be traveling: 10,000 times the speed of light.

To appreciate the weirdness of entanglement, consider that the outcome of a single quantum measurement is random. By all tests, a photon *has* no definite polarization until it hits a detector capable of measuring it. So it's like the entangled particles share one big quantum state.

There's one other subtlety to the experiment. If entanglement is traveling through space like some kind of faster-than-light wave, that would violate Einstein's theory of special relativity, which says the laws of nature are the same no matter which way you're moving with respect to anything else.

So the group had to run their experiment repeatedly for more than 24 hours, counting on Earth's rotation to sample all the different orientations relative to the stars. (Imagine a laser pointer shining into space along the direction of the optical fiber.)

It's always conceivable that quantum mechanics might break down (read: show some signs of everyday normalcy) if experimenters could test it the right way. In a 2007 study, researchers in Vienna tested the idea that maybe the instantaneous-ness of entanglement (called nonlocality) was consistent with hidden "variables" that can explain the randomness of quantum measurements. But no dice for that idea.

Theoretical physicist Terence Rudolph of Imperial College London, author of a commentary on the new paper, says that putting bounds on faster-than-light entanglement is useful for researchers trying to imagine theories that might extend beyond quantum mechanics.

What might such a theory look like? Rudolph says we're probably stuck with instantaneous entanglement, which seems impossible to us because we're stuck in everyday space and time. "We need to understand how quantum mechanics sees space and time," he says. "I think there's probably much deeper issues."

Project 13: Project 13 -- for Gavin & Shirl's Distribution Systems [GSDS]

 (See also: Experimental GSDS)

GSDS are designed for information to be distributed, visually and audibly, via GSDS to be developed and and sold to millions of houses, and offices (not necessarily Utopian homes).  GSDS is useable in one or more rooms, in each house or office, especially for people who want access to information, learning and teaching aids for themselves and their, and other people's, children, to enjoy learning and mutual efforts to help one another.
