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

saving information


I could kick myself. In all the years i've been researching the web, i could've accumulated tons of information, links, webpages, you name it. Now i do but tons of stuff that i've run into over the years are lost forever, mere distant memories.

Now i ]download vids on YouTube and stuff, save good webpages (instead of putting them in favorites [Explorer], and am filling up external hard drives with movies, ebooks, pdf's, etc. etc.

Saving webpages is one that maybe not everyone realizes is possible: top left option in Explorer, Save Page As, and choose top HTML option.

basic technology simplified


]CEMENT:
80% limestone and 20% shale [very common rocks!], pulverized and heated 1400 to 1600C degrees, then pulverized again. The heating is done in a slanted kiln, 60 meters long and tilted 2 meters.
Limestone and shale have variable values; it might be necessary to experiment with sources.
Also see posts on ]hempcrete.

]GLASS:
Basically: sand, seaweed, and seashells!
Recipe for ]Ordinary Green Glass for Dispensing Bottles [parts by weight]:
- 63 sand
- 26 carbonate of sodium (dry and burn seaweed; soak the white ash and dry what dissolves)
- 11 lime (crush and burn seashells)

]PAPER
Hemp: soak, boil with soda ash, roll, dry, iron

your best 'bug-out' bag: the body


There's a lot of talk online about bugout bags. The entire concept of the bugout bag, however, seems to be about preparing for events that are no worse than collapse of the electrical grid.
First of all, even you believe in limited cataclysms [and my own UNDERSTANDING of 2012 isn't a matter of belief at all], the best 'bugout bag' is... YOUR BODY.
If you're still confused about nutrition, if you still aren't clear on the basics, anything you put in a bag will likely have 5 to 10% actual effectiveness, i.e. if you're serious about preparation, that's just insane.
The best place to store nutrients like minerals is in the body; a healthy body...

Your gut is basically a not-so-internal garden. The tube that starts at your mouth and ends at your anus is really not internal but it's a tube going THROUGH the body. In this tube, especially the intestines, there are more cells than your body's made up of, though smaller so they only make up a few pounds worth.
Like good soil in your garden gives either nutritional or poor produce, your gut needs good bacteria and a feeding ground that supports GOOD bacteria.
People quite commonly suffer from toxicity and malnutrition. That has to do with pollutants that modern people are faced with and also with poor soils, especially in modern countries.
People, therefore, suffer a dubble whammy of lack of nutrients and extreme attack from the outside in the form of chemicals, heavy metals, and stress.
Mainstream health professionals, on the other hand, profess bad bacteria are the problem [see ]post on Germ Theory]. They suggest that heavy metals can't even be chelated and rather don't mention them. They also don't talk about the poor quality of mainstream produce, whether it's about soil life or mineral content.
Minerals are best saved in the body. Actually, the body appears to be an immense repository of minerals. THAT'S WHY IT TAKES SO LONG TO DIE FROM MALNUTRITION!!! [This can't be overstated: you can save years worth of life-saving/health-giving nutrients in your cells]
People are generally unhealthy and weak, though, because they are very lacking in minerals (and overburdoned with toxicity). To turn this around is NOT about taking supplements. It's about achieving a good gut flora and consuming mineral-rich foods. Both a good gut flora AND good foods are essential, for the body digests NOTHING; only good bacteria actually make the good food accessible to the body.
]David Jubb says good gut flora provide the body with 27 grams of protein a day. He claims to have ]lived off of only water for 11 years, all that time enjoying optimal health. To this day he hardly consumes any food, he claims.
This is about probiotic-rich foods like kefir, raw beer, sauerkraut etc., it's about chelating chemicals and heavy metals, and it's about good foods and so-called superfoods.

THIS is your best 'bugout bag'! I.E. a good gut is your best repository of health. Also your body itself.
A (truly) healthy body is a repository of water and nutrients, with an ability to efficiently supply you with what you need through good gut flora EVEN WHEN YOU EAT OR DRINK ALMOST NOTHING. On top of nutrients, a healthy body has a good pH balance and can suffer immense trauma and still function well, whether you're talking radiation, starvation, or thirst.
Your energy bars THEN are next to nothing compared to the factory of health and energy that you could be accomplishing TODAY.
See the posts on this board on how to hydrate, feed, and clean up the body so it's working well for you WTSHTF.
Extra benefit: THIS bugout bag can't be forgotten, lost, stolen, or will weigh you down. This one, i.e. a healthy body, will support you even now, offering you more energy and mental power to deal with preparing for whatever's to come.

necessary research / priorities


What's next? We've got all we need about how to make our own cement, glass, and gunpowder,, essential ingredients to a high culture. What else do we REALLY wish to bring along into a startup culture?

- how to make magnets
- smelt iron/make steel
- sodium chlorite
- electric generator
- hydraulic rampump
- paper and ink
- woodgas stove [for the gas, for the furnaces]
- how to make a compressor (to store gas with, for the furnaces)

That's a good start. It's also a lot of chemistry and takes (ME) a lot of time figuring out...

- Magnet: essential part of many kinds of technology, including electric generators
- steel is the hardest metal known [excepting that which can be acquired through sophisticated technology] and iron ore is easy to acquire.
- with the basic knowledge of electric generators, one can proceed to get it from wind, water, or steam.
- water is the essence of life: no water, no agriculture, no civilization; the hydraulic rampump is an underestimated tool in getting water to where it's needed, easily more than 100m higher than the source.
- writing is part of communication, essential part of civilization
- 3 million vehicles ran on woodgas during WWII; it's still used to fire furnaces
- without the ability to store gas, furnace capabilities are limited

the most important points to begin with


If you haven't been considering what it'll take to get back on your feet, or for humanity to, the choices will likely confound you. Based on years of research and consideration, this is
MY TOP 3 & TOP 10 FOR ESTABLISHING CIVILIZATION POST 2012


1: ELECTRICITY (electric generator)
2: ALUMINUM
3: SODIUM CHLORITE
electricity
The advent of electricity brought about our own modern age. It's NOT about lighting; it's about communication possibilities which in turn fundamentally influence society; it's also about how transportable, accessible, and easily applicable energy makes the development of other technology and research possible [such as creating chemical( compound)s].
aluminum
Though it may be hard for modern people to fathom, electricity was only possible because of the abundant supply of copper as a conductor. Copper, however, is NOT an abundantly occuring element in nature and is usually only found in a few locations. Also, millennia ago people found ]native copper which is a pure form found naturally on top of copper deposits. This is nothing to base one's society and development on. Aluminum, however, is found over vast regions [wherever there are monsoon rains], often making up as much as 30% of the soil. Aluminum's ability to conduct electricity may be only 61% of copper, but it's a good second because it IS abundant, nor requires mining.
sodium chlorite
Sodium Chlorite makes MMS when mixed with an acid. Get yourself a hardcopy of ]Jim Humble's MMS book. This will make water potable and heal you of almost all sickness.


Beyond these essential bits of technological knowledge, the following might be added as basics:
1: electricity
2: aluminum
3: sodium chlorite
4: Glass
5: Concrete / ]hempcrete [= better]
6: Paper
7: Mirrors
8: Hydraulic rampump
9: Woodgas stove
10: Radio
