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

hydroponics


An interesting form of hydroponics i ran into in the Aztecs & Incas episode of ]What The Ancients Did For Us is how the people ]in ancient Mexico practiced agriculture on floating islands of reed. They scoop up the sludge on the bottom of the lake and throw it on top of the floating reed. The roots of the plants growing on the reeds basically just take their nutrients through the water and don't have to develop large root systems to do so.

The great advantage of such a system is that the islands are portable. One can move the islands around as necessary or convenient.
This is a great idea for not only covering up any lake that might otherwise evaporate too much water, but simultaneously making use of the covering involved.

Searching for links and pics, it looks like the Mexican islands don't float at all. Strange, since the documentary clearly saw someone moving one around.
The only truly moving islands i was able to find were in lake ]Titicaca, 42 of them left today. Apparently they need new reed every 3 months which means a lot of work and having plenty of them growing around the islands.

The Big Agricultural Lie is that we need soil to grow food, the ultimate spiritual lie. Francis Bacon (1561-1626) was the first to write about it.
The Life Force is in hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen, all rising like gas to the top of the Periodic Table of the Elements.
Minerals are borrowed by Spirit (Energy acting on Energy) to draw relative boundaries and divvy up the Unified Field (energy field) into the Relative Field (agricultural field).
