HI , some time ago i been thinking about the possibility of using energy as currency.
Creating a new currency based on thermodynamic laws and the eMergy concept proposed by Odum.
Odum used to say that money in our system is not a good way of measuring the real wealth of something because our economic system doesnt take in consideration energy and the work done by nature. So he created a new way of measuring the "real" wealth of things, based on energy laws and in the hierarchy of energy.
Hierarchy of energy means that you cannot compare 2 different types of energies using just calories.
2 calories of sun energy are not the same as 2 calories of fossil energy in their capacity to generate work. So in order to compare different types of energy ( and everything !, not just energies ) you need this hierarchy of energy that allows to convert the calories from one type of energy to another.
For example 1 cal of fossil fuel is equal to 2000 cal of sun energy.
With this new type of measurement you can define the real wealth of everything. Because everything in our universe uses energy.
The "real" wealth is very different from the "economic" wealth ( capitalism monetary wealth).
With a new currency that integrates this , it would be possible to integrate the currency to the dynamics of the planet and nature, it would be possible to create a new sustainable world at large scale.
What do you think about this idea?
Is it possible use these technologies like block chain that work not only in the digital domain but are also attached to real world processes or things in the real world?
