From myself and my family, we would like to thank you for your support around the development and distribution of the QEG. Over the course of the last few weeks we have received many inquiries and wanted to take this opportunity to answer some questions and manage expectations.
First we would like to highlight that the method in which we have developed and plan to distribute the QEG has NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE. For this reason it is important to clarify some of the key differences between the QEG and any other product on the market.
A Consumers First Glimpse Behind the Scenes
The average consumer is not exposed to the research and development stages of a new product and only knows about the product when it is on the shelf and ready for purchase. The competitive business environment we have lived in for decades fosters secrecy and requires that those involved with product development sign non-disclosure contracts where they are forbidden to talk about the product until it is marketed for sale.
One of the core values of the Fix the World Organization is to foster co-operation instead of competition and we have exemplified this through the development of the QEG. From its inception, the QEG has been publically reported on to the people through all of the ups and downs of its development. Research and Development has always gone on behind locked closed doors in any major company, FTW flew open the floodgates from day one. This has had both positive and negative effects:
Positive: It allowed anyone to take part in the co-creation of this amazing breakthrough for humanity. Hundreds of people have donated, thousands have been following the development and receiving information that many other developers would never tell them. Knowledge is power for the people, and in turn, FTW has received the love, hope and support of the people to help us bring something like this through. We never could have done this alone, rather we chose to co-create it with all of you. We focus our efforts and energies on those in our global community that come to us with a spirit of bestowal and co-operation.
Negative: It made us a target and allowed open access to every being who is still operating in a stance of aggressive competition (meaning cutting someone down to “win” at all costs). We filter through hundreds of correspondences and comments on a daily basis. Approximately 95% of them are positive and supportive and 5% of them are negative. We are well aware of the network of “paid trolls” and the tactics used in an attempt to stop something that would threaten the oil industries. We view these negative comments as aggressive competition. In order to maintain the integrity and energy levels of the good work that we do, we do not support these attempts at aggressive competition and we do not engage in them in any way.
Reality Check: Time Frame Comparison
Here is some real data from a major electric motors manufacturing company gleaned from 27 years of employment by the QEG Engineering Artist:
Under these circumstances:
-An annual operation budget with multiple millions of dollars at their disposal.
-A team of 20 full time paid experts to work on development.
-A pre-established supply chain that was developed over 50 years to supply all order needs.
A major corporation can take a new product from inception to market in NINE MONTHS.
And this is just for something as standard as a vacuum cleaner. For something more significant, such as in the automotive industry, the same process can take 7 YEARS with triple the resources. Non-disclosure contracts are enforced by all involved and the consumer has no knowledge of the product until it is available for purchase.
The QEG circumstances:
-A Crowdfunded budget of a total of $30,000
-A team of three people: one developer and two assistants
-No established supply chain, but a few good leads and connections
It has been 5 MONTHS since QEG inception. Most of the entire research and development process is complete, the only thing we have left to do is the careful write up of the plans for opensourcing. We estimate that we are approximately 1 MONTH away from bringing this to market for a total of SIX MONTHS from inception to market. And this isn’t a vacuum cleaner! Information about the QEG has been made public since its inception; the public has had knowledge of this product and an opportunity to support it.
Our Release Strategy in Sequential Order:
First: Open Source QEG Plans
Second and Third Simultaneously: Take a limited amount of pre-orders to fund the creation of a training program, then assist other communities in training for their own local QEG production.
Fourth: Proof of Principle demonstrated by the people.
IMPORTANT GUIDELINES PRIOR TO OPENSOURCING EXPLAINED:
We’ve received a lot of various inquiries in the last few weeks and wanted to outline some of the precautions we are taking during this sensitive time prior to the open sourcing of the QEG:
We’ve received lots of requests to speak to the inventor for a “quick question” regarding technical aspects of the QEG. It is important that a FULL and COMPLETE body of information is released intact before any such questions are answered. Incomplete information gleaned from a 5 minute conversation can open the door to problems and may damage integrity. For this reason, the inventor would like to wait until after the open source documents are complete to answer any technical questions.
Proof of Principle Public Announcements: FTW will not make a public announcement such as: “it works”. Such public announcements draw unwelcomed attention and could complicate our main goal during this delicate time. Our goal is to get this to the people, help them build them and distribute the QEG freely to the world. Then, THE PEOPLE will make the public announcement of the QEG through their own personal testimonies. In the initial stages, FTW plans to use our network of trusted and respected professionals who participate in collectives such as the Breakthrough Energy Movement to provide testimony of the QEG’s successful operation.
Our first priority is to Open Source the plans for the QEG. We are currently working on the careful completion of a document package that will include drawings, a parts list, user manual, troubleshooting tips and a waiver. This package will be as simple as we can make it, but will be written for an audience that is assumed to have engineering expertise (hence the waiver); it is crucial to have an advanced level of training and/or understanding of the forces at work in the QEG.
Open Sourcing is a necessary first step before all others as it will provide the protection the QEG needs from suppression. Fix the World is freely giving the QEG away to the world. We are not aware of this being done before and we are working diligently to ensure that it’s done right. It is important that the document package is as thorough and complete as it can be because once it’s open sourced it is public and therefore unchangeable.
We are entering into a new world, a new paradigm and a new way of doing business. With this freedom comes great responsibility and many are about to experience what true sovereignty feels like. The QEG is a gift freely given to the world. The instructions will be complete and correct. For the experienced engineer who should choose to follow them carefully they will produce a safe working product. In this new paradigm, everyone needs to be responsible for their own actions, which is why we have a waiver and have been working with some new paradigm Law professionals who have been advising us on these matters. Fix the World is not responsible for the actions of others. For those that wish to build a QEG, we ask that you use careful thinking, patience, and consideration for the greater good. We don’t want anyone to build it wrong, waste their money, or get hurt.
Consulting, Training and Pre-Orders
We want to help teach others how to build their own QEG’s and create their own system of local distribution. To do this we are developing a training program that will involve travelling to communities (if needed) all around the world to help them start up their own production that we are calling Cottage Industry Community Units (CICU’s).
FTW does not intend, nor do we wish to become a manufacturing center for QEG’s, rather we want to invest most of our energy into training others to build them. We also would like to focus on new product development and other planet changing projects in the future. However, to raise the funds needed to launch such a training program, we will be manufacturing a limited number of QEG’s for sale and also for donations to help others.
We already have a tentative customer base established for the limited pre-orders, and another list is growing daily for those interested in our training program to establish their own CICU’s.
Immediately following the necessary Open Sourcing of the QEG plans, the manufacturing of QEG pre-orders will commence with an expected production time of 3-4 months for delivery. Also at this time, we will commence in the creation of our training program and will begin taking bookings for CICU start up travel.
This is where things will get very interesting and humanity will have a chance to co-operate instead of compete. Prototypes always cost a lot more than replications. The first few always cost a lot more than those that follow, basic product production understanding tells us this. But what will happen when the QEG is released to the world without the limitations of competitive industry, price fixing, and non-disclosure agreements? The QEG might cost a lot more to make in the US than it does in other countries, but humanity can find co-operative ways to help even this out. There are other innovations like 3D printers that can play a huge role in creating the parts for the QEG at a fraction of the price. CICU’s can come up with creative ways to produce them for less and trade ideas with other CICU’s through social networking.
In this new paradigm, Adam Smiths “invisible hand” becomes the millions of invisible hands of the people who now have the power to moderate price through their own unhindered creativity. While humanity finds a way to even out pricing, millions of people across the planet will acquire QEG’s.
