Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1001 to 1500
~ Idea 1131 ~ 15 August 1997
Here in the hamlet of El Rodeo, the seat of the University for Peace, the schoolchildren collect aluminum cans for recycling against a small recompense. When I keep aluminum cans for them or pick them up during my cleaning up of "the cleanest mile on Earth" between my little farmhouse and the University for Peace, I remember this information on aluminum cans:

• When one tosses out one aluminum can one wastes as much energy as if one filled the same can half full of gasoline and poured it onto the ground.

• If one throws away an aluminum can, it will still litter the Earth up to 500 years.

• In 1988 alone, aluminum can recycling saved more than 11 billion kilowatt hours of electricity, enough to supply the residential needs of New York City for six months.

Volume II Chapter 5 - Of Love
We need not only philanthropy (phil, anthropos, love for humans), but also gaiaphily (gaia, the Greek goddess Earth, love for Mother Earth). And why not also familyphily (love of the family), egophily (love for the self) and ecophily or earthphily (love for Earth and of her nature)?

Everyone needs beauty as well as bread,
places to play and pray,
where nature heals and gives strength
to body and soul alike.
