in the near future ancient wisdom and renewable technnology will be the key to survival.

to be in a survival situation, and live completely prosperous off your enviroment is the kind of knowledge ppl need to be able to apply.

to be in the wilderness and want for nothing as if you were at home is neccesary.

technology today makes things easier and weakens us. artificial foods and television create complete rot. the energy that is money does the task of completely separating ourselves from nature.
its almost like all of humanities time-saving inventions represent fears and insecurities. the fear of being responsible for yourself, of being independant. everyone wants to survive this way, sure its the easiest. but because you can buy meat in a store, you are incapable of hunting it, of even knowing what to do with it. we become dependant on our time saving inventions, and lose our essential connection with the earth.

you are dependant on the system that is dependant on you. when the unnatural system fails, survival of the fittest is natural order. beneath our lifestyles, survival of the fittest is still inherent. society is so unnatural that we call how we once lived survival. when we go camping or hiking, we have to carry all this gear like we're on a foriegn planet, like we dont actually have the skillset to live.
imagine that our lifestyle could continue like this on earth forever. one day walking on the surface of the earth could require the training and equipment of astronauts.

every single one of your ancestors survived and reproduced because they were able to adapt. we all sense that a system collapse is imminent, and when the time comes i hope we have not sunk too far into our degenerate unnatural lifestyles.

the people who survive will mos def be the ones who turn to renewable energies and ancient wisdom.

i should probly also say that i dont think we're a bunch of stupid degenerates who live in fear. and im not saying that no one knows how to hunt anymore.

You seem to forget that there already thousands of people across the world that live the 'hunter/gatherer' way already.
