The main feature of our time is the "duality": we demand livable environment, on the other hand we use it in an unsustainable way to ensure the overflowing comfort of welfare societies. As a result, the use of the environment (namely the environmental elements and their systems, processes and structures) has now led to overloading (pollution, damage). So the state of our habitats are reflecting our actions there is no doubt about that. That is, our activity is an imprint of our thinking. Changing/modification requires innovations that facilitate the development and application of the embedded technologies of the future, building on the intersubjectivity of individuals. One of the cornerstones of the European Green Deal is that "economic growth should be decoupled from resource use". Among our resources, water especially drinking water is a scarce commodity. However, with prudence, care and ingenuity we can do a lot to reduce the amount of wastewater. Our short paper, as the title indicates, does not attempt to present the partial results of a specific research but tries to shed light on the topic from another perspective. It demonstrates through an example of wastewater recyclability, that increasing volumes are no longer just a problem to solve. Rather, it is a challenge, and technological development offers a way out of its trap, so that the society does not have to face the negative effects of declining water supply. Similar to the arts, simultanism can be interpreted in the engineering sciences as well, which is spatially distant but simultaneous phenomena and activities, and temporally distant but related phenomena, activities, etc. it carries its simultaneous existence.
