“Alhazen (Ḥasan Ibn al-Haytham, c. 1040), was the first to explain that vision occurs when light reflects from an object and then passes to one’s eyes…” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibn_al-Haytham)
This widely thought to be the case, since, even today after all fossil fuels reserves have been almost depleted to scarcity.
Until now, though, when new hypothesis in Energy and its relation to Time proposes that Light doesn’t travel, at all, as it might be always there, only seen and felt when its intensity increases.
Civilisation appears not only constrained to when humans find past Energy reserves in abundance, and they burn them all at once, but rather to when they seek truth, even with much less Energy burned.
Thorium in many ways is even worse than the existing reactors (there are several articles on this site that explain why it’s more radioactive and riskier for weapons proliferation).
Spent is a misleading term. “Highly irradiated” fuel that is insanely radioactive after use is closer to the truth.
“Better to do it correctly now in an incinerator”
The problem is it is not possible to do this “correctly”
Burning plastic makes “products of incomplete combustion” that are in many cases worse than the original compounds. The incineration industry hopes to capitalize on the failure of plastic recycling, but some folks pointed out plastic recycling was a scam three decades ago, without much success. PVC is a big reason for this failure, but that is rarely mentioned (it contaminates polyethylene and other non-chlorinated plastics) and impossible to practically separate out from the others.
Waste is a terrible thing to mind.
The old saw has it that why worry, since “….in a hundred years we’ll all be dead.” Thanks to all this electro-mechanical, institutional, and ideological enhancement enjoyed by the “civilized” peoples today, that time horizon for probable extinction is effectively reduced to, maybe, five-to-ten years.
Even that is likely crazily optimistic, given the rampant insanity so undeniably on-display among those operating all that machinery. The pyramid-scheming priesthood, of the cult of death and destruction that has always ruled “civilization,” is now insisting on All our company….here in the terminal throes of their own incurable misery. Too bad our domesticated Human relations, organically crippled by the fear-inducing “self” sickness, just can’t see The Way clear of this “Self”-inflicted predicament.
Meantime, us surviving Free Wild Peoples, of all Kinds, will just keep on fulfilling as best we can our given Organic Functions within Earth’s Whole Living Arrangement. For HumanKind that is as a component of Her natural immune system. Any among our currently captive Two-legged Sisters and Brothers who might want to join us can do it by simply (though maybe not so easily) getting over their own too-precious “self.”
