    Energy money is the catalyst and tip of the spear for an intelligent sentient species’ transition from a Type 0 into a Type 1 civilization on the “Kardashev scale,” which measures the energy and technological mastery of a society.

    ALL intelligent sentient species are on this path, whether consciously or unconsciously, and must reach this point before they are eliminated by:

    • one or a series of megalomaniacs pushing the “red button”;
    • some artificial abomination of intelligence that interprets our poor behavior and thus biological life as inferior;
    • an asteroid; or
    • the fiat-funded, sterile authoritarian gulags they build on their quest for centralized, efficient utopias.
