A student recently asked what to do for Reality Creation when “shit hits the fan”. Well, I believe in the power of thought, so I don’t think there is any shit that will hit any fan. As a conscious creator, I prepare for the best, not the worst.
But in the remote possibility that “shit hits the fan”, through War, economic collapse, zombie outbreak, alien invasion or creeping global tyranny under the guise of a pandemic, I’m still optimistic that humans will survive. We are resilient and resourceful and imbued with creative power beyond our wildest dreams.
Just for fun, I’ve compiled a list of badass books I’d want to have in a survival scenario. Imagine a small community of survivors and you intend to rebuild civilization. What are some of the books you’d hand out?
What touched me most, while compiling this list, is that today, most people don’t know how to do any of this! We are getting too comfortable, scrolling on our phones all day, and it makes people sleepy. Learning new skills keeps you fresh and awake. You could learn new skills, even if there is no survival situation.
I could have listed thousands, but chose just a few examples to show you the range of things that could be learned. I have not read most of these books. As I said, I’m an optimist. And I probably wouldn’t read a book to learn a skill but rather, observe someone do it and learn through imitating and doing it myself. Things are more quickly learned through experience than through books. The books would be used for additional reference and detail – or if there is nobody left to learn from.
Another reason for this list is because I just love books – especially unique and rare ones.
The books below are old. That’s why almost all of them are FREE (open source).
(if things get really rough)
You get the idea. I found most of these free books by using the search function at archive.org. You can find any book imaginable there.
Amazingly, we have instant access to the most information than ever in our History, but make the least use of it.
