For comic relief, one realizes that the Creator must have a great sense of humor, for the job definitely requires it. Here the creation has provided us with available, free, unlimited electrical energy flowing freely from every charge in the universe. Everywhere. In every EM system ever built or that ever will be built. And in the midst of such incredible riches of available energy for the taking, our scientists have botched it for more than a century, despoiling the planet and savagely fighting and tearing nature itself, ripping out and consuming vast quantities of hydrocarbons, nuclear fuel rods, etc., killing of species and poisoning the biosphere, and all the while proclaiming how advanced our science is and that we can do no better in our efforts to keep up with the rapidly escalating demands for energy and transportation.
