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

running story ebook: Born to Run


I've been hearing about the Tarahumara indians in Mexico for years. Their abilities in running surpase most ideas of what people even think possible.

]This is an audio book that can be downloaded [using ]a torrent engine].

Born to Run is an epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt? In search of an answer, Christopher McDougall sets off to find a tribe of the world's greatest distance runners and learn their secrets, and in the process shows us that everything we thought we knew about running is wrong.

Isolated by the most savage terrain in North America, the reclusive Tarahumara Indians of Mexico's deadly Copper Canyons are custodians of a lost art. For centuries they have practiced techniques that allow them to run hundreds of miles without rest and chase down anything from a deer to an Olympic marathoner while enjoying every mile of it. Their superhuman talent is matched by uncanny health and serenity, leaving the Tarahumara immune to the diseases and strife that plague modern existence. With the help of Caballo Blanco, a mysterious loner who lives among the tribe, the author was able not only to uncover the secrets of the Tarahumara but also to find his own inner ultra-athlete, as he trained for the challenge of a lifetime: a fifty-mile race through the heart of Tarahumara country.

the future of mankind: the Tarahumara


Corn. Bring one, plant one,, expand your territory.

Imagine a people so healthy and strong that they can traverse extreme terrain over 40km every day quickly and easily, a people with such a simple diet of tiny portions that they can spread out over the world with a fraction of effort that any known people did [in modern history, i.e. probably like lost records of what Aztec or Mayans did].

Imagine not having to take herds or all kinds of tools or produce in order to have what you need to live well but only a few small bags of corn and chia seed; go out, plant them, come back,, and when a few months have passed you have food waiting for you 40 to 50 km from home, the next step to a greater territory.

All other peoples would be suffering the limitations of their elaborate and limiting diets, moving slowly, unable to keep up with you...

That is the promise of the Tarahumara.

vid on making Chia Fresca
According to the running book the recipe is chia, some sugar, and lime [fruit].

Pinole is a dry meal made from dried & roasted corn. Mixed with water or milk, it is very tasty and fortifying.
Travelers and runners almost always have some with them for sustenance.
