TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

the psychology of surviving TEOTWAWKI


In 2 YouTube vids, sex-starved marriage: Michele Weiner-Davis at TEDxCU [at 14:24] & Hurts More Than You Might Think the science of rejection is talked about.

I BELIEVE I NOW UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE OPT FOR SUICIDE EN MASSE!!!


This has come to me as an epiphany. I already understood the research of Peter Kropotkin [see his book Mutual Aid] in which he explains that mankind is an inherently social species that experiences SOLIDARITY as a basic part of the psyche, but now i see how this is triggered to destructive attitudes: it is because we are an inherently social species that we FEAR FOR OUR LIVES when we see ourselves falling out of line with our 'peers'*.
REJECTION HURTS

If you see the linked vids, you'll see that science now recognizes that rejection actually causes physical pain. So that's like burning your hand on a hot stove. Rejection gets hardwired into the psyche. That means it's not just about feeling anymore, it's much more than that. We're talking actual neural connections that become part of our psychological makeup, i.e. THIS IS NOT JUST SOMETHING YOU SHRUG OFF BY STRENGTH OF CHARACTER OR SOMETHING!

The implication should be clear: if your attitude towards TEOTWAWKI is contrary to that of the masses as well as to that of ALL OF YOUR LOVED ONES, ACQUAINTANCES, AND FRIENDS,, this causes actual physical pain and psychological conditioning on your part.

That explains not only why even the people talking about TEOTWAWKI ultimately just opt for suicide, but it explains why the great majority of people won't even think about TEOTWAWKI. After all, since the subject is inherently linked to becoming a social pariah, there is actual FEAR of getting hurt associated with it. And even if you talk about it [which is rare], there's always the implication that you are a traitor to the human race if you survive where 7 billion people do not. You are hardwired by evolution to fear death at being ostracized so it's a lose-lose situation: either you actually die, or you fear death when you save yourself, since those who die consider you a pariah for trying to survive.

In the first YouTube link above, Mrs. Weiner-Davis explains how people can save their marriage when they come to understand how to not let fear of rejection by their spouse rule the relationship. That means that people can also save their lives by seeing how their fear of rejection is ruling their survival considerations.
I have always pointed to future generations because i've understood [Kropotkin] that solidarity is a fundamental psychological factor: though the present billions may by implication reject you, future billions will thank you if you take survival seriously. Now i have found a way to explain how to avoid the fear of rejection by the present billions altogether.
If you're unconscious of this insult to your psyche it becomes an itch you cannot scratch and you get the impression that surviving TEOTWAWKI 'just isn't meant to be' or something. Then it becomes something you can never come to terms with and you give up on it. Understanding this fundamental human drive offers a key to transcending that kind of suicidal considerations and feelings.

* "peers" in the coloquial use of the word; technically our 'peers' are not our peers, a matter that can have severe legal ramifications.

Good news!
There now exists in the world a stash of books, seeds, etc. for survivors or later generations after TEOMCROTE.

I have buried a supply of the following books and other items, covered in concrete, and protected by a pile of rocks:
- Periodic Tales by Hugh Aldersey-Williams
- Caveman Chemistry by Kevin Dunn
- The Biillings Method by Evelyn Billings
- Thou Shalt Not Be Aware by Alice Miller
- The 12th Planet by Zecharia Sitchin
- The Secret of the Dark Stars by Anton Parks
- Primitive Technology I & II from The Society of Primitive Technology
- Born to Run by Christopher McDougall
- Reed's Sextant Simplified by Dag Pike
- a tiny atlas

- sextant

- poster of the Peters Projection map of the world
- poster of the table of periodic elements

- seeds

- prints of my TEOMCROTE books so far

They were all in hard plastic containers to keep them waterproof. I went up to about 1750 meters on a mountain in Morocco and found a good spot where people nearly never come. Even if someone does, though, they won't be able to spot the stash.

Hopefully if the !@#$ hits the fan i'll be able to retrieve the lot then. If i manage to set up a better option, i can retrieve them and add them to the better location. Worst case-best case scenario: someone in later times finds the seeds and books and can (learn to) understand the English and appreciate what they have to offer.
For those who've looked into my writings at ][sign in to see URL], i.e. into my book TEOMCROTE and others [see banner of this blog right at the top of your screen], it should be clear that the above collection of books is probably like none other in the world. It's not just about technology, it's about what our age has uncovered about being human. But not in the politically correct sense, rather in the scholarly sense. Where did we come from? What is the source of strife? What is good and what is bad? The above books explain these things without having to refer to some axiom or assumption.
Would even some literate person have the pegs to compute what they hold? Unlikely. But just like people nowadays do not have the pegs to digest such literature, still they exist and are out there for the few who might [like myself] understand their content in spite of mainstream culture. And if i had had centuries to use this kind of information, i might have been able to do great things, is what i believe and hope. So perhaps there will come a day when mankind will be able to apply this knowledge and transcend (what i prefer to call) sophisticated barbarism [i.e mainstream authoritarian culture].
