    "Survival Skills"

    Knowing Something's Seriously Wrong, Without Knowing Why:
    In Competitive Games; World Power Struggles; Friendships
    and Romance; Health and Well Being; and Life, Itself. Thoughts?

    Add to that knowing what to do, and having the ability and motivation, to right the wrong, as survival skills that make knowing what is seriously wrong a survival skill.

    Starting a fire. Selecting the safe mushrooms. Assembling a crystal radio set that can transmit.

    Brilliant imagery: I see an off their face arsonist trying to make a radio out of actual crystals. 🙂

    The problem is that we do a lot of things without understanding the underlying principles.

    * How many of us can still programm (actually writing code not clicking blocks together)?
    * How many of us could built an electrical generator?
    * How many of us can built a lock? Or repair one if they could open it?

    * How many of us know how banking actually works?

    But how many can judge the merits of a operating system (probably a lot mor think than can...)

    Intellectual Health [awake/alert, despite an anesthetizing ether of the internet];
    and Psychological Well Being [in the beguiling face of pervasive blind spots*].

    In the amazing light of the bonfire, a mushroom could easily suffice as a microphone.

    Knowing 'when to shut up' can also be a 'survival skill'.

    Survival implies not luxury!

    Or: one can be quite astonished on how few real needs a human has.

    "Survival implies not luxury!"

    Would Dreaming Deep within Some Dark Woods, All Alone, During the Wee Hours Still Be Okay?
