It is difficult to develop an overall fair way of measuring in an accurate way, the various impacts of different kinds of human activities --- upon the integrations-and-integrities of all the different kinds of participants. If not all people have agreed yet to use the Internationally-Agreed-Upon Professional-Energy-Unit called the "Joule" --- just-when are we all likely to agree to all use an Internationally-Agreed-Upon Professional-COST-Unit to measure the Net-COST of each different kind of human activity mentioned below? 2. What about the the Raw-Available-Energy that resides within the CHEMICAL-COMPOUNDS of any Kilogram of Coal, Oil, Gasoline, Ethanol, Natural-Gas, Wood, Paper, Corn, Grass, Peat, Shale-Oil-Rock, Uranium-Ore, Yellow-Cake, U- 238, U-235, Thorium, Mass-in-Orbit-around-the-Earth, Mass- in-Orbit-Around-the-Sun, Asteroid, Planet, Star? 3. In each of the above cases of there being an amount of Raw-Available-Energy --- what is the amount of Potentially-Useful-WORK which can be done by Purifying- the-Raw-Available-Energy by using other Usefully- Available-Energy; i.e., what it the Net-Total-Useful- Energy which is Available-in-Available-Energy-Resources -- with due consideration given to the facts we know about Entropy and Energy-Conservation in regards to Thermodynamic-Processes which are unavoidably involved in using each form of Raw-Available-Energy? 4. What are the: Environmental-COSTS, Personal- Integrity-COSTS, Communal-Integrity-COSTS, Alienation- COSTS, Confusion-COSTS, Resentment-COSTS, Crime-COSTS, Corruption-COSTS, Disease-COSTS, Mental-Health-COSTS, etc. of the many ALTERNATIVE-PATTERNS-OF-hUMAN-BEHAVIORS? What units-of-measurement should be used in each case; and how can they be converted into measurements in terms of one standard unit of measurement of all kinds of COSTS? 5. Net-COST cannot be ascertained in the absence of determinations of the respective BENEFITS of each ALTERNATIVE-PATTERN-OF-HUMAN-BEHAVIORS. 6. Net-COST cannot be ascertained in the absence of coherence between the unit-of-measurement-of-cost AND the unit-of-measurement-of-BENEFIT. The total COSTS of a pattern of human activities --- must be subtracted from the total BENEFITS of the same pattern of human activities; to get the TOTAL-NET-BENEFIT of the pattern of human activities. 7. Net-COST cannot be ascertained in the absence of the determination of Both-the-Costs-and-Benefits of the effects of the pattern of human activities upon the TOTAL- ENVIRONMENT within Space-Ship-Earth and its contiguous relevant space-time --- within God's-Solar-System. (In human terms the four-dimensional-space-time outside of God's-SOLAR-SYSTEM need not be considered.) 8. How can we measure the amount of Alienation-and- Anger-and-Resentment present within Space-Ship-Earth --- if there are people within Space-Ship-Earth who do not feel free to admit to How-Much-They-Feel-Threatened by the presence of Domineering-Bullies within God's Space- Ship-Earth? 9. How can we measure the amount of Integration-and- Integrities within Space-Ship-Earth --- if there are Domineering-People within Space-Ship-Earth who do not feel free to admit to How-Much-They-Feel-Threatened by the presence of True-Lovers-of-Integrity within God's Space- Ship-Earth? Be-Together in the Many-Gracious ways of Shalom. (c) 2008 by Paul A.
