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

humanity


The principles, logic, and science presented in MacDougal's Born To Run suggest a number of things about what might be considered mankind's natural way of living.

It becomes evident that one of the main things that has made mankind unique in the animal kingdom is his ability to sweat. Mainly there are 2 other kinds of animals that share this ability: canine and equine species.
Dogs and horses, however, are examples of species that fulfill a natural niche other than that of man.
Dogs are fast long-distance hunters and horses are fast long-distance herbivores. Mankind is a slow long-distance hunter-herbivore [not an omnivore, btw].

The way men are able to hunt middle-distance herbivores like deer is by running them down because they can't sweat and therefore overheat. Such a hunt typically lasts 3 to 5 hours. It should be clear, though, that in a cold climate a non-sweating animal would last much longer. Therefore it seems logical that mankind, as a hunter, belongs in a warm climate.
On the other hand, since mankind needs the edge of being able to sweat (in order to hunt successfully), it's clear that mankind belongs in a region where the humidity is not such that sweating doesn't help. Therefore, the jungle doesn't appear to have been where mankind developed or belongs. Mankind belongs where he can hunt and sweat.

Dogs [foxes, wolves, hyenas, etc.] sweat through their mouths. Though this isn't as efficient as sweating all over the body, they are still formidable competitors to man. Cats, on the other hand, will overheat quickly.

Horses [zebra, donkeys, etc.] sweat and cannot be run down by man. Deer, antilope, and other such species all look very much like all others of the same species because their main tactic in avoiding (sweating) carnivores is by confusing them and tricking them into changing from one target to the next one. So a deer might trick a carnivore into chasing another deer that's still fresh/cool to the chase. This is why horses can have distinct colors: they don't need to look alike.


As long as humans have water to cool themselves down with [replenish the water they've lost through sweating], they can run down goats, deer, sheep, etc.
Perhaps sheep make such great prey because they'll obviously overheat so quickly in hot weather. Goats will fare better and may take longer to overheat but ultimately cannot outlast a man. A rabbit can be run down as long as it can't hole up anywhere.

With such knowledge about animals and mankind it should be possible to arrange situations in which animals can be allowed to range free but with certain limitations in their maneuverability arranged in the landscape. Such considerations are 'humane' and not only serve good karma but free one from the burden of shepherding animals for meat.

overpopulation and recurring global destruction


The overpopulation myth MYTH
Sometimes Mike Adams goes on rants that are tainted by ignorance and misunderstanding of 'the basics' [as i see them] but in the above article he's right on the money, i believe.
He doesn't pussyfoot around the matter and it's wonderful to read: we're destroying the planet and there doesn't appear to be an end in sight. No end, that is, to the destruction of OUR civilization; the end to previous civilizations, however, seem to be hiding just under the surface, boding ill for our own future.
It's Mike Adams, the 'Health Ranger', at his best.
