This report explains how we intend on managing QEG expectations; our strategy for implementing the QEG on a global grassroots scale. The report gives an in depth comparison to normal industry standards for realistic expectations from the general public.

From myself and my family, we would like to thank you for your support around the development and distribution of the QEG. We would like to highlight that the method in which we have developed and plan to distribute the QEG has NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE. For this reason it is important to clarify some of the key differences between the QEG and any other product on the market.
A Consumers First Glimpse Behind the Scenes – The average consumer is not exposed to the research and development stages of a new product and only knows about the product when it is on the shelf and ready for purchase. The competitive business environment we have lived in for decades fosters secrecy and requires that those involved with product development sign non-disclosure contracts where they are forbidden to talk about the product until it is marketed for sale.
One of the core values of the Fix the World Organization is to foster co-operation instead of competition and we have exemplified this through the development of the QEG. From its inception, the QEG has been publicly reported on to the people through all of the ups and downs of its development.
Research and Development has always gone on behind locked closed doors in any major company but FTW flew open the floodgates from day one. This has had both positive and negative effects:
Positive: It allowed anyone to take part in the co-creation of this amazing breakthrough for humanity. Hundreds of people have donated, thousands have been following the development and receiving information that many other developers would never tell them. Knowledge is power for the people, and in turn, FTW has received the love, hope and support of the people to help us bring something like this through. We never could have done this alone, rather we chose to co-create it with all of you. We focus our efforts and energies on those in our global community that come to us with a spirit of bestowal and co-operation.
Negative: It made us a target and allowed open access to every being who is still operating in a stance of aggressive competition (meaning cutting someone down to “win” at all costs). We filter through hundreds of correspondences and comments on a daily basis. Approximately 95% of them are positive and supportive and 5% of them are negative. We are well aware of the network of “paid trolls” and the tactics used in an attempt to stop something that would threaten the oil industries. We view these negative comments as aggressive competition. In order to maintain the integrity and energy levels of the good work that we do, we do not support these attempts at aggressive competition and we do not engage in them in any way.
Reality Check Time Frame Comparison – Here is some real data from a major electric motors manufacturing company gleaned from 27 years of employment (James Robitaille). Under these circumstances:
-An annual operation budget with multiple millions of dollars at their disposal.
-A team of 20 full time paid experts to work on development.
-A pre-established supply chain that was developed over 50 years to supply all order needs. A major corporation can take a new product from inception to market in NINE MONTHS. And this is just for something as standard as a vacuum cleaner. For something more significant, such as in the automotive industry, the same process can take 7 YEARS with triple the resources. Nondisclosure contracts are enforced by all involved and the consumer has no knowledge of the product until it is available for purchase.
The QEG circumstances:
-A Crowdfunded budget of a total of $30,000
-A team of three people: one developer and two assistants
-No established supply chain, but a few good leads
FTW will never make a public announcement such as: “it works.” Such public announcements draw unwelcomed attention and could complicate our main goal during this delicate time. Our goal is to get this to the people, help them build them and distribute the QEG freely to the world. Then, THE PEOPLE will make the public announcement of the QEG through their own personal testimonies.
Liability – We are entering into a new world, a new paradigm and a new way of doing business. With this freedom comes great responsibility and many are about to experience what true sovereignty feels like. The QEG is a gift freely given to the world. The instructions will be complete and correct. For the experienced engineer who should choose to follow them carefully they will produce a safe working product.
In this new paradigm, everyone needs to be responsible for their own actions, which is why we have a waiver and have been working with some new paradigm Law professionals who have been advising us on these matters. Fix the World is not responsible for the actions of others. For those that wish to build a QEG, we ask that you use careful thinking, patience, and consideration for the greater good. We don’t want anyone to build it wrong, waste their money, or get hurt.
Consulting/Training – We want to help teach others how to build their own QEG’s and create their own system of local distribution. We have a system to provide communities around the world to start up their own production that we are calling Cottage Industry Community Units (CICU’s).
A cottage industry is an industry—primarily manufacturing—which includes many producers, working from their homes, typically part-time. Before the Industrial Revolution which eventually led to the state of centralized corporate manufacturing we live with today, most industries were cottage industries. The term originally referred to home workers who were engaged in a task such as sewing, lace-making, wall hangings or household manufacturing. Business operators would travel around buying raw materials and deliver them to people who would work on them, and then collect the finished goods to sell, or ship to another market.
The use of the term has expanded and is used to refer to any event which allows a large number of people to work part-time. For example, eBay is said to have spawned a cottage industry of people who buy surplus merchandise, and sell it on their auction system.
A CICU for QEG production would need a business operator who could order raw materials to be delivered to the engineers that could work on assembling them in a local workshop or warehouse. Then, the business operator could sell the QEG’s to community members, and have them hand delivered and installed in homes or businesses by local QEG-trained electricians. This concept can be replicated in communities around the world.
Not only does this method provide QEG’s directly to the people, but it creates jobs, improves the local economy, restores the lost art of creativity and craftsmanship, and literally removes the ‘power’ from the corporations and gives it back to the people.
Mycelline Disribution is a term FTW is using to describe the way in which multiple cottage industry community units can connect around the globe. Mycelline refers to mycelium, which is the network of mushroom roots that grow beneath the surface. The knowledge of the existence of the QEG and the ability to create a cottage industry unit for its production and distribution in your community will spread by word of mouth, social media and “underground”, just like the mycelium. QEG’s, made by the people in their local communities will pop up everywhere from the network, just like mushrooms.
It is also worthy to mention that the primary role of fungi in an ecosystem is to decompose petroleum products and remove pollutants from the soil in a process known as bioremediation. This is perfect symbolism for bioremediation of the pollution caused by the big energy companies, as the QEG network decomposes and helps to phase out the petroleum industry.
FTW does not intend, nor do we wish to become a manufacturing center for QEG’s, rather we want to invest most of our energy into training others to build them. We also would like to focus on new product development and other planet changing projects in the future.
Pricing – This is where things will get very interesting and humanity will have a chance to co-operate instead of compete. Prototypes always cost a lot more than replications. The first few always cost a lot more than those that follow, basic product production understanding tells us this. But what will happen when the QEG is released to the world without the limitations of competitive industry, price fixing, and non-disclosure agreements? The QEG might cost a lot more to make in the US than it does in other countries, but humanity can find co-operative ways to help even this out.
There are other innovations like 3D printers that can play a huge role in creating the parts for the QEG at a fraction of the price. CICU’s can come up with creative ways to produce them for less and trade ideas with other CICU’s through social networking. In this new paradigm, Adam Smiths “invisible hand” becomes the millions of invisible hands of the people who now have the power to moderate price through their own unhindered creativity. While humanity finds a way to even out pricing, millions of people across the planet will acquire QEG’s.
