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 Japanese traditionally didn't heat their houses during winter. The paper walls kept out the wind but the only heating they had was in their kotatsu. Used to be some coal in a grate but now they use an electric bulb.
Efficient use of energy and resources emoticon

According to Daniel Vitalis the human body has 3 'hearts': the heart and the 2 calves. The kotatsu heats the calves and allows them to send warm blood throughout the body, though the heart is in the cold.

Gtumo


]Gtumo is this 'power' that certain Tibetan monks display to lay naked in the snow and dry a wet towel on their body. Good for survival situations.
The point to gtumo is that it's a basic technique that can be practiced and applied without years of training or supernatural concentration. In fact, the principle can easily be acquired and trained:
- wake up and throw cold water over your naked body
- sit naked outside until you are dry
- while you sit hold your breath as long as possible, slowly breathe out, quickly breathe in

If you practice this even one time you'll notice that you don't shiver while you're breathing out. Then you shiver like crazy while breathing in. After a while you will get warmer and after some weeks of practicing your body will get better at standing the cold (all the time).
This is a nice ability to have but monks/people who live up in high mountains without coats cannot enter a heated room or they will lose the ability.
It's a good one to know in case one is caught in a situation or region where heating is at a premium.
Actually, it's more of a social problem than a physical one, since you cannot be in a heated room (and you'll probably be the only one practicing the technique).
This was applied by monks in Tibet where the people are generally healthy already, live a healthy lifestyle, and follow healthy diets. Supporting one's health in general will probably make it easier to apply this technique with success.
It's also discussed ]in this blog:
Once initiated, one must renounce all fur or woollen clothing and never approach the fire to warm oneself.
After a short period, during which he exerts himself under the close supervision of his master, the novice must retire to a very remote, absolutely solitary place situated high up on the hills. In Tibet " high up " means generally an altitude well above Io,oOo feet. According to tumo teachers and adepts, one must never practice the training exercises inside a house, or near inhabited places. They believe that foul air produced by smoke and smells, together with various occult causes, impede the success of the student and may even harm him. Once conveniently settled, the disciple must see nobody besides his lame, who may visit him occasionally, or to whose hermitage he may repair at long intervals.
The novice must begin his training each day before dawn and finish the special exercise relating to tumo before sunrise, because as a rule he has to perform one or another meditation at that time. The practice must be done in the open, and one must be either naked or clothed in a single cotton garment. Beginners may sit on a straw mat, if they own one or on a piece of hard sackcloth or a wooden stool. More advanced disciples sit on the bare ground, and at a still higher degree of proficiency, on the snow or the ice of a frozen pond or stream. They must not breakfast or
even drink anything, especially any hot drink, before practicing.

[and so on...]

fire starters


Saltpetre impregnated fungus - Polyphorus fomentarius - known all over Europe as 'amadoo' - was widely used as tinder from early times. It was collected from old trees and treated by boiling, soaking in saltpetre, then dried and used in a tinder box. This contained flint, steel and material - the tinder - to ignite easily and was an essential household article before the invention of matches as well as a personal possession as the cigarette lighter is today.

transference


In a podcast on rocket mass heaters it was discussed that heat and cold can be transferred through the following method at extremely efficient rates:

A copper tube is filled with a bit of alcohol, or many other elements, and after being vacuumed and sealed it will transfer temperature very well.

Most copper tubing is neither sealed nor vacuum-sealed with some element inside of it and only CONDUCTION is what translates temperature. However, if one takes a length of copper tubing and fills it with an element while exposing it to vacuum forces, the resultant tube will exhibit around 95% efficiency of energy transference.

This is a big deal. It means solar energy and the like [as mentioned, this discussion took place during a rocket mass heater discussion, i.e. the heat of the rocket mass heater could easily be transported using this technique] could be transported through a building or work site.
Needless to say, this leads to much speculation of potential applications that are unheard of.
