feel welcome to this forum!
You have a very interesting lifeway until now!
I looked a bit over your activities...
Unfortunately, my english is not good enough for to understand all aspects.
And for to explain what is irritating me about what motivates somebody first work for to save life by expanding it to the universe,
and afterwards dealing with "raptor economy":
Isn´t this naming attractive for a specific kind of people?
For people who don´t waste many thoughts about ethics?
Isn´t their form of economy the activity most dangerous for life?
Surely i understand too less of economy but it is like an ecosystem.
Do we have to accept an economic ecosystem of "raptor and prey"?
Will such an economy not kill life before it succeded to jump from earth to space?
And for what expand to the stars if life will be there also a never ending struggle against economic terrorism?
Is it responsible to contaminate other planetes with our terroristic economy?
I ´m not shure whether i would prefer extinction to end pain...
Shurely i misunderstood many aspects...
..it would be kind if You could please explain...?
with friendly greetings,

One of the great things about being an author is being able to invent anything you like, without having to worry too much about the details, so in The Lucifer Bug I have the new currency pegged to the value of a litre of diesel fuel, and give the survivors the ability to make the diesel as a bio-fuel. I'm sure there must be snags to this, but I'm interested in how other forum members would solve the money problem.
