Yeah, nuclear WW3, they're still living in XX century :whistle:

Sometimes i opine that rusty ballistic rockets could explode in the very silo if somebody tries to launch them oldtimers. How old are they - like 60, 70 years? Maybe PTB should cassified cassified cassified cassified ...:headbanger:

Session August 9, 1997:
A: Reincarnation on a 3rd density earth as a "cave person" amidst rubble and a glowing red sky, as the perpetual cold wind whistles...
Q: Why is the sky glowing red?
A: Contemplate.
Q: Of course! Comet dust! Sure, everybody knows THAT! Wonderful!!! Anything further?
I think the C's gave this answer for a reason. The "group of 200" and ilk was supposed to transcend to 4thD not remain stuck down here Ice-Aged--Ice-Caged as cave persons.

I'm planning for a quick exit. Day After Tomorrow gave the wonderful idea of Insta-Freeze in a Supercell. Yeah, I wish.. But just maybe, maybe pretty please it could "rain" large, sharp ice chunks acting as really big cleavers, easily crushing even reinforced roofs and transforming me into Christmas Mince Pie really quick.

This is one hell of an interesting thread...

Do I have any plans for the coming ice age?
Well, only for the first two weeks I guess.

What about everybody's plans for pole shifts, global economic break downs, wars about food, water, religion and races? Not to mention plagues, decay or destruction of nuclear power plants, let alone millions of Nephalim descending on our hapless planet set to stomp their big boots across our faces?

Has anyone any practical advice concerning the issues mentioned above?

Should I be totally unhappy to make it "only" to 5-D, which would mean sharing the fate of Julius Caesar, John F. Kennedy and other outstanding personalities?

I'm not going to work myself into a preparation frenzy because I can't prepare for everything, can I?

The next six to twelve months will probably be the time we've all been preparing for consciously (and unconsciously) and I hope I'll be able to do something useful while watching the events unfold.

Maybe i´m going to make some insulative floating floor under my tent, in case the water comes.
:lol: Gross exaggeration - in a reverse sense - to my concept there... Bit naughty.
Try to look beyond the floating pyramid images depicted and look to its scope of potential. Its not about Lazzarinis floating playboy penthouse jacuzzies per se. No, its about the overarching basis of its general design principle using the pyramidal shape concept. Because of its shape when adaptable to become properly insulated, it can get tossed about violently in turbulent seas, bobbing about like a rig.
If a coastal-lyte is caught out due to an extreme catastrophic 'sea-centric' event, he is not hopelessly dependant needing sufficient maritime experience as that a dogged seafarer like yourself, knowing how to correctly navigate a ship into the oncoming surges of a super tidal-wave. The floating pyramid is for the every-man.
Granted though, you know much more about sea conditions because I'm a naïve land-lubber (living 60 miles inland ;-))
Those "wise guys" are purchasin' estates on very Rims of The Ring of Fire :-O
Timely mentioned. I was leading onto the Japanese Shimizu Mega-City Pyramid: Shimizu Mega-City Pyramid - Wikipedia

"Because the seismically active Pacific Ring of Fire cuts right through Japan, the external structure of the pyramid would be an open network of megatrusses, supporting struts made from carbon nanotubes to allow the pyramid to stand against and let through high winds, and survive earthquakes and tsunamis.
The trusses would be coated with photovoltaic film to convert sunlight into electricity and help power the city. The city will also be powered by pond scum or algae.
Robotic systems are planned to play a major part in both construction and building maintenance." [AI plug there. Who needs servants to bring food? Robots maintain robots]

I notice, about pyramids, theyre always pretty cool, but always of self-contained self-serving artificialized environments highly dependent on technology. These 'pyramid schemes' could be done if there was more time, but we probably don't have it even if the human will and organisation suddenly kicked in high gear. Buts that's cool, because, to ride out this coming mother-of-multi-cataclysms, it seems we as a human race in nearing times of cosmic upheaval, 'split' to make a choice: either to lean toward that of the post-Atlantis 'Circle' people of a more harmonious relationship with nature and spirituality, or to commit fully to becoming the materialist post-Atlantis 'Pyramid' people so technologically obsessed.

Dunno about anyone else... But when it comes down to it, Im gonna roll with it no matter my point in spiritual progression and no matter where on this Earth I find myself when it strikes - coz I'm with lilies on this one.
But on the coast? I see big problems!
Big problems everywhere, PT!... Its the end of the world, baby!!

I agree about the practical issues you presented. The worst would be the destruction of nuclear power plants that become inacessible, yet will melt down and explode, like we have seen with fukushima (which is still poisoning the pacific!).

I have had thoughts about moving south, but I recall what someone mentioned about the great depression. Many people left cities and went into the country areas, which ended up being more dangerous than the cities that they left behind.

I had a chat with a fotcm member who lived near here a while ago about moving away:
If you have land in the country or outside the city, are you prepared to kill people who are looking to survive coming from the cities? At what point would you rather just die than to keep fighting to live?

Sorry if it sounds defeatist, but I'm going by the numbers here. You may have nice land in the middle of nowhere, but there are even more people than in the great depression who will be seeking a place to survive in. It's not always going to be about cooperation either, especially after factory farming dies off. A small farm can feed your family and friends, but cannot feed the many who are displaced and hungry.

All I know is that life is not that valuable to have to dehumanize myself to kill to survive. Let the meek inherit the earth... if it happens to be the psychopaths/sociopaths, so be it. They can have this crap hole and all of it's "excitement".

It can take 10, 20 or more years, as already happened until a world catastrophe arrives. Is it worth "living" worried about how we are going to survive if it happens? Instead of continuing to take advantage of the opportunities that one has to contribute to the world and continue learning. Assuming we agree that everything are lessons. Studying professions focused on social work or how to deal with emergency situations seems like a good way to prepare and keep learning to me. Specially for those who live in countries with social justice warriors students XD


There are comments saying that we have to get away or not get involved in the show while the world goes to hell, and prepare to escape from that. But at the same time, worrying about the suffering of the people and admiring people like Putin that make this world less worse with his actions doesn't fit to me. Staying away from the show is what I did all my life. At least in my case I feel I can contribute and learn my lessons by being part of the show, trying to surf the waves of chaos XD rather than reading first all the recommended books that will take a life, or than help in Sott although I liked it. I just don't think that everyone should do the same, I remember the comparison of the community as an organism where each one has its function ... Doesn't this group lack limbs?

Is not participate in the show like a good and informed actor what it means to carry the cross of the world or what the story of Jesus represents? Or what Gurdjieff said that 200 men could change the world? Learn don Juan's art of stalking and to be an ovyvatel

I think of those who can't watch series like Game of Thrones because it disturb them but can read The Wave and all information here. If someone can't tolerate fiction or can't be part of the theater of the world now. How to survive with the real disaster? Even members of experimental communities can not live together harmoniously in peace time

I'm pretty certain that those who survived natural disasters or extreme weather conditions in the past didn't manage to do so because they could stomach TV shows with sickening scenes (to each their own I guess), plus I'm pretty sure they didn't have any of that then! Not being disturbed by such TV scenes or watching such shows regardless of those scenes is not an indication of strength or preparedness, I would say.

Added: I just want to clarify that of course you can watch what you prefer, people have different preferences, but I'm just trying to say that just because some members would not like to watch shows like Game of Thrones because of its content, doesn't mean they would not be able to face any type of disaster. That depends on many (other) factors.

I’m not sure what you are trying to say Josev, so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. But being disturbed by cruelty doesn’t seem like a weakness to me. But rather essential. Cruelty is always disturbing and a perfect normal reaction. If nobody would be disturbed by it, nobody will try to correct it.

Empathy allows us to react accordingly to such situations. Empathy also allows us to form strong social groups, which are essential for survival. Being sensitive to tragedy also makes one realize that one’s purpose lies amongst all this pain in the world.

I think that becoming insensitive to tragedy in order to survive is by that a lose lose coping mechanism.

My 2 cents.

From my point of view, I would prefer to expend my energy observing reality right and left because it has relevance. That is already difficult enough and I don't need any extra trauma via fiction. When I read any fiction, it is usually to exercise my puzzle solving skills and, most of all, relax. I even like things that are mildly boring because it helps me go to sleep and just before going to sleep is the ONLY time I read fiction.

I'm fighting the harshness of life with bad humor, but I honestly have no idea, at least yet what to do. What I ment was is stupid to be alone or surrounded with people you don't agree when SHTF because life is too precious to spend it stupidly. I can't heat my appartment enough now and it's not even the real winter yet.

Some ideas!
Though think safely. Also bee's wax candles would be a better choice.

You're right, but I bet that for those who survived catastrophes like the one described here, any series would be Disney :D

I only gave my opinion from my experience, I think we can learn from movies and I like to see them for that. Either on anything, or for creativity.

The series that I mentioned was just an example, based on historical events and difficult times. I did not say that those who do not tolerate fiction about psychopaths are going to die or that the reason to see is to become desensitized.

I never read much as a child, I was more athletic, but I saw all kinds of films that helped me broaden my vision of the world rather than desensitize me. I remember that sometimes I forced myself to watch bizarre movies and felt a mixture of wonder and disgust for the things that pathological people can do, and somehow I learned about that.

I'm almost sure I would have been a snowflake and I would have got into more trouble otherwise ... but until now I watch romantic movies and I cry XD

I can be insensitive but more than anything because of the absence of real experiences and relationships in my life that because of what I saw. If I had to choose again I prefer to start insensitive :D
