Living Among the Elements

During the next 800 years from 348 to 1148, the Emeriti split into a number of cells that specialized in agricultural and forestry practices, fishing, sailing, alchemy, medicine, the fine arts, stone masonry, the Art of the Deal and Jazz.  Some of the stone masons made their way to Kingsbridge, England, which resides in Ken Follet’s novel, Pillars of the Earth, and assumed roles in his plot, advancing the state of the building and design arts, while forging a fledgling guild system that advanced the idea that an organized group of workers with specialized knowledge could actually demand to be paid for their work in advance.  Their efforts are said to be the basis for the modern 19th Century American Medical Association (AMA), and the American Bar Association (ABA).

The agricultural group worked across the region and developed propagation skills and experimented with what they referred to as, “scientific farming,” while concentrating on inventions to make work easier on the body and provide more time for leisure activities and fermentation.  Modern Emeriti at the Broad Hill Institute, Center for Advanced Agricultural Studies and Applied Solar Technology, exemplify this legacy by creating a variety of solar powered devices to achieve the same aims of their predecessors:

The Simple: "Solar Powered Scare Crow™"

1. Broad Hill Solar Garden Hat™ 2. Motion Sensor Fork™ 3. Bird Sound Sensor Tabs™ 
4. iPod Unit filled with New Age Songs.  5. Rock Speakers.  6. Faux Speaker Rock
7. Power Feed from Solar Garden Hat™
Motion and Sound sensors send power from the Broad Hill Solar Garden Hat™ to the iPod unit filled with lethal New Age tunes.  Music blares from the faux rock speakers and scares away most life forms (except cockroaches).  Gardeners will be required to wear, patented, “BHI Ear Filters™.”
