Escape Velocity Of Life


 by Billy & Chris Garrett

The escape velocity of Earth is about 11.2 kilometers per second. This means an object attempting to leave from the surface of the planet and break free of Earth’s gravitational hold needs to leave at this speed. The formula for calculating the escape velocity of a body with mass M that exerts a gravitational force on the object trying to leave it is given by the formula

v_e = \sqrt{\frac{2GM}{r}}Where G is the universal gravitational constant, M is the mass of the body which an object is trying to leave from, and r is the distance from the center of gravity.

I was thinking that if there were an equation for the escape velocity of life, it would look like

v_l = \sqrt{\frac{HS}{d}}Where H is the human gravitational constant (constant around the world because of the innate need for humans to gravitate toward civilization), S is the measure of the societal connection of the average person within a given society (calculated by using the variables of population size, level of infrastructure, etc…), and d is the ‘distance’ of the person in question from the society itself, meaning how embedded he is (calculated by considering the escapee’s total number of personal and professional relationships, his total number of assets and liabilities, etc…) in the society he lives in. The more embedded he is, the smaller the value of d becomes.

You get the point, I hope.

How close are you to being able to drop completely off the grid?…

An Overview

How are you going to get moving? Here is what you need …

  • Multiple Stage Rocket – Try as you might, it is extremely difficult to make any big dream a reality if you try to do everything all in one go. We need a multiple stage plan. Break your big goal into smaller, more attainable stages, while keeping your eye on the target.
  • Booster – Rather than taking a run-up and flapping your arms like mad, get a boost to get you going. Once you have some momentum things look a lot easier.
  • Your Platform – A solid foundation ensures you build something great and robust, rather than topple over and explode at the first sign of resistance.
  • Rocket Fuel – No matter how good your initial boost, you will soon putter out if you don’t have a great supply of rocket fuel.
  • Build a Support Network – Who is your mission control? Have you got a maintenance crew? Or are you trying to do everything yourself?
  • Radar Listening Station – So you are launched … what now? Are you on target? Are you drifting towards the sun and a fiery doom? Better find out …

Gather Your Resources

Before you attempt to launch, gather your resources.

What do you have?

  • Financial resources
  • Experience
  • Knowledge
  • Assets
  • Audience
  • Traffic

Who can you call on?

  • Colleagues
  • Partners
  • Potential Partners
  • Peers
  • Community
  • Contacts

If you work out what you have to support you now it will make it easier later when you really need something or someone. If you find you are missing a lot of elements, gather them before you need them!

Get Ready for Quite a Ride

Achieving escape velocity can be a white knuckle ride into the unknown, but also exciting and fun at times too.

Brace yourself and we will help you along your journey!
