I am Muireann Ní Sídach, founder, product architect of Fleet Réalta✦ and acting salonnière of Otherlight Salón of Cultural Revolution, an existential, experiential learning laboratory for Otheredworld peoples exercising experimental living.

Otherlight Salón is to serve as the “Inception Team” for the initial research, planning, and incorporation of Fleet Réalta Corps.
Operating out of the Berkeley community, and currently searching for both Co-Creative Partners and engagement in allyship with organizations who own complementary principles, interests, cultural temperament, and modalities of activism.
This is Culture as a Technology (CaaT), a collaborative pursuit of disciplined study and practice in the use of tools, virtual and actual, which further enhance our personal, cooperative, collaborative efforts passionate experiential learning, exploration, experimentation, creation, and production within the ArtScience paradigm.
This collaborative vision of psychosocial health and fitness is in part inspired by the work of Dr. Vikram Harshad Patel, MBBS, Ph.D., who advocates a unique form of peer-counsel, ordinary people competently delivering basic psychiatric services. Our variant of his Technology, Education, and Design vision named SUNDAR is Ecological Counseling informed by the multi-disciplinary sciences of Environmental Psychology.
Rather than treating ‘mental illness’ with the episodic McTherapy preferred by insurance companies, we envision an adaptive organization science that prioritizes continuous exercise for maintaining mental health and fitness coeval with the more normative preassumption of continuous physiological fitness. Fleet Réalta is but one possible example of a means for critical decolonization of health and fitness, mindful of culture without abandonment of evidentiary science.
We create a co-operative capital funded, sociocratically operated worker cooperative that treats products and services as the means to essentially underwrite the cost of optimizing the human strengths of worker-owners, their families, our communities of residence while accommodating those human limitations which form impediments to our creativity and sustainable productivity. I repeat, the needs of the Fleet Réalta Corps when fulfilled by our creative efforts, become our products which in turn serve the public good, with an uncompromising assurance of ongoing tests, validation of relevance, and systemic refinement.
Former New York Times columnist Anand Giridharadas takes us into the inner sanctums of a new gilded age, where the rich and powerful fight for equality and justice any way they can–except ways that threaten the social order and their position atop it. We see how they rebrand themselves as saviors of the poor; how they lavishly reward “thought leaders” who redefine “change” in winner-friendly ways; and how they constantly seek to do more good, but never less harm.
“You never change something by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
― R. Buckminster Fuller
Fleet Réalta is a worker cooperative designed for engagement in public-private partnerships demonstrating alternatives models of critical infrastructure. Demonstration within a primary context of engendering healthy, fit, resilient, adaptive communities.
Aside from the experimental nature and ongoing development of the organization, its first mission is a practical demonstration of Secure Wireless Energy Management, Electromotive Mass Transit, and Transportation Demand Management network for all, predicated on the assumption of Mobility as a Human Right. Mobility is a fundamental of the critical infrastructure a state must guarantee in fulfillment of its social contract.
Right now we are witnessing a changing of the guard, the Battery Barons summarily taking the reins from the Oil Barons. Fleet Réalta seeks a Public-Private demonstration of practical, secure, mid-field wireless energy transfer for primary electro-motive power, safeguarding life through the effective use of 3D virtual occultation that manages the focus or interrupts the transfer beams when intersected by any object in transit between a vehicle and emitter.
This safe, secure wireless energy management ecosystem will relegate onboard energy storage to small auxiliary power packs that have been manufactured with a mind for environmental responsibility. This RoadEdge technology acts as a force multiplier that systemically reduces the costs of vehicle manufacture, vastly increases the measure of vehicle payload capacity, while rendering these vehicles of virtually unlimited range and duration.
The initial demonstration is intended to be an adaptive public transit vehicle aimed at the niche sectors of the transport ecosystem that high-speed rail and commuter flight fail to serve.
Transportation for the rest of us, a model that extends the utility and efficacy of pre-existing transportation infrastructure, affording more people, greater freedom of access with cognitive software based transportation demand management network.
This SmartGrid to SmartRoad proposal is semi-permanent, an intentionally open, flexible, adaptive design standard that will be applicable for paved, unpaved, urban, suburban, and rural settings, farmlands to forests and marshlands, with our Intracoastal and tributary waterways, become, once again, gateways to social and economic vitality.
No disruptive, displacing infrastructure but a flexible system that will survive to serve in our hour of need, the next earthquake, inevitable forest fire, pending hurricane, or exodus from the human threat of mob violence and state-sanctioned war.
Communities long excluded through economic class predation and industrial serfdom will be empowered. You can well imagine how the introduction of such systemic change will be received by the powers that be.
