Absolutely nothing. At least nothing directly related to TSVN. I meant
it as an analogy and was missing a chunk of discussion located only in
my brain that I didn't bother to write down. I do this
frequently...people just learn to fill in the missing pieces.

Except for the fact that if you go without electricity for more than
five minutes you probably go mentally crazy. I do anyway. You and I
are comfortable with electricity - so comfortable that we don't realize
how dependent upon it we are. The only reason "advances" are made are
to make people even more comfortable. However, Stefan pointed out that
change doesn't happen while people are comfortable. I was merely trying
to point out that the only way to enforce change is to forcibly remove
the implicit comforts we have. I know a few people who will start a
civil war if you ever tried to eliminate electricity. Frankly, I'd
welcome the change for a couple years. It would make us all more
responsible with our resources.
