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

worthwhile novels


The Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov is about the collapse of civilization in the galaxy, predicted by psychological science, and the rebooting thereof by allowing a single planet on the fringes to not only save technology but to further it's development.
At the same time there's a planet where the psychological science that predicted the fall of the empire is maintained and further developed.

This scenario could in part be similar to what might be achieved by saving the knowledge that makes up (the essence of) civilization, living among 'savage' remnants of civilization (as in the book) until the time and opportunity to share it with the whole, thereby drastically decreasing the time necessary to get to high civilization (as in the book).
The aspect of two colonies with very differing approaches to science might also have some merit in our case.

It's a classic book, anyway, and well worth the read.

Homesteading Handbook
Self-Reliance Mega-Manual

]This YouTube channel offers some pretty good reviews of a load of survivalist books out there.
My own opinion, obviously, is that they focus on an ALMOST EOTWAWKI scenario and not on civilization reboot and are therefore pretty much moot.
