    Ep. 107 - How to Survive a Cataclysm and Reboot Civilization

    Ep. 107 - How to Survive a Cataclysm and Reboot Civilization

    Surviving the apocalypse 🔥⛈🌋💣👾🪓

    In this episode, Mattimore explores a thought experiment… What if civilization ended tomorrow?

    What would you do if your devices stopped working, your water stopped running, and chaos broke out in the streets? Do you have a plan? Do you have the supplies needed to survive? Do you have the skills necessary to provide the basics - water, food, and shelter - for yourself and for those you love? Let’s say you and I are able to survive the apocalypse… how might we go about rebuilding civilization from scratch? Another way of asking the same question is: If civilization were started today, how might it progress differently than it did in our own history? And even if civilization doesn’t end anytime soon, what can we learn through this thought experiment about how best to colonize Mars and how improve life here on Earth?

    The inspiration for this episode comes from a Richard Feynman quote…

    When asked what sentence holds the most information in the fewest words, Richard Feynman said, “It is the atomic hypothesis… that all things are made of atoms - little particles that move around in perpetual motion, attracting each other when they are a little distance apart, but repelling upon being squeezed into one another.”

    In the spirit of Richard Feynman, we’ve packed as much useful survival information as possible into this 37 minute episode. Enjoy!

    Broad Topics:


    Possible ways that civilization could end
    How to go about getting the essentials?
    Rule of 3’s: 3 mins no air, 3 days no water, 3 weeks no food
    How to find, purify, and store water
    How to think about food security
    How to start growing your own
    Key principles of farming
    Four crop rotation
    How to preserve food
    Where to go for shelter
    Urban vs rural living
    Creating an ecosystem
    Surviving the elements
    How to generate charcoal
    Harnessing a power supply
    How civilization may progress differently
    Leapfrogging the industrial revolution
    The future is sustainable
    Rebuilding from first principles
    The scientific method
    Collaboration as a superpower
    Forming a system of governance
    How best to colonize Mars
    How to improve life on earth

    Future Scenarios:


    Worst case scenario
    Best case scenario
    Most likely scenario

Stoned Beavis & Butthead

These two sound about as informed and intelligent as Beavis and Butthead drunk on leftist propoaganda koolaid. Their ignorance of history, science and politics is both laughable and pitiful. If you want the ignorant leftist propaganda viewpoint on sea level, climate, and politics this is the podcast for you.
