If history is to be creative, to anticipate a possible future without denying the past, it should, I believe, emphasize new possibilities by disclosing those hidden episodes of the past when, even if in brief flashes, people showed their ability to resist, to join together, occasionally to win The Renaissance: The Revival of Learning and Art in the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Centuries.

The Commonwealth, politeia, is composed of several parts and members. Of these the most important, and the most necessary, are the Emperor and the Patriarch. There is an obvious parallelism between the two powers. The peace and prosperity of the people depend upon the accord and unanimity between the Imperial power and the Priesthood Los incas (Vida y costumbres en la antiguedad). EROI is a key conc ept to describe any economy.� When 90% of a population devoted its effort to procuring food, virtually all human effort went into acquiring energy, and little surplus energy existed to supply professions and the elite.� In those early societies, their societal EROI was about 1.1.� If all of a person�s effort goes into procuring food, his/her EROI is one, as it takes all of his/her energy to obtain his/her energy. �If one person can provide food for two, then his/her personal EROI is two.� The EROI concept is used for various energy situations.� The Roman Empire's EROI for wheat and alfalfa cultivation has been estimated at 12 and 27, respectively. [880] � That reduction in agricultural workforce in industrializing England reflected a rising EROI for food production, which came from mechanization and more efficient methods.� A concept for helping to understand EROI is return on financial investment, but return on financial investment only mimics the real world and is not itself real.� Money and finances are accounting abstractions that are only meaningful if they reflect the real world, but they often do not.� When American whaling ships were sailing around the world in search of whales, it reflected a plummeting EROI.� Whales took more energy to find, they became smaller as the biggest ones were targeted first, and the like. �Only because European sailing technology turned the world�s oceans into low-energy transportation lanes could whaling like that be feasible, but declining EROI also reflected declining absolute energy that could be exploited.� As Gravettians drove mammoths to extinction, their mammoth EROI declined, as well as the amount of energy that could be exploited.� When both sank far enough, that first �civilization� would have collapsed and they moved in search of easier meat, for those who survived the �mammoth famine.� That dec line in whaling EROI and the gross amount of exploitable whale oil set the stage for exploiting a new energy source, and the rise of oil then happened.� Oil�s EROI and total exploitable energy made whales insignificant by comparison.� In the 1930s, the EROI for East Texas oil wells was more than 100. �Those days of easy oil are long gone.� The global EROI of oil and gas production has fallen from about 30 in 1990 to less than 20 in 2014 and may decline to 10 by 2020.� That means increasing amounts of energy are expended to extract the energy.� Reports of increasing gross global energy extraction are misleading, as the more important measure is net energy acquired.� At an EROI of two, half the energy acquired is used for extracting it.� At a gross 100 barrels of oil extracted at an EROI of 100, 99 barrels are available for societal use.� At a gross 100 barrels of oil and an EROI of two, only 50 barrels are available.� Only about a third of an oilfield�s deposit is recoverable.� Once a third of the oil is extracted, the energy surplus quickly falls to zero and it takes as much energy to extract the oil as is acquired, or stated another way, the EROI falls to one Wonderful Ethiopians OF THE Ancient Cushite Empire (Annotated Author's Bibliography and Works).
