"Energy, yesterday, today, tomorrow"
Energy, life itself is energy.
It burns, flows, blows, cooks, glows, vibrates, undulates in an endless evolution on wich life sometimes fluctuates. It is a perpetuum mobile of emergence and extinction in interdependence and necessity.
Man taps energy in countless variations, depending on the insights of science and technology. He distributes energy and uses it as far back as the adventure of the human kind started in the East African Rift.
Today we overshoot the atmosphere, beyond the limits of our solar system and tomorrow maybe, we find the way and the energy to a new dimension or a wormhole through time.
Do you have some energy left for a cartoon?
