Primal Future

Every human being is an animal.
We are mammals who need habitat.

For the last 5,000 to 30,000+ years* we human beings have been living in a habitat created outside of nature. We call it Civilization, which being a reality in and of itself for us to control nearly every input and aspect. Even though we can never know what truly is coming next we still happen to build a relatively safe and controlled environment to live in. This is of course if you happen to live in a developed area of the world. The rest of the world is much more adapted to the future we are heading into.

However there is an underlying world. This is the true reality. We are apes, primal in nature at our very core. You can pretty it up with technology and let if fade into the background but it will always return in a moment – raw instinct – blasting out of you when you least expect it yet need it most. This energy from our ancient selves is what we need to tap into for the remote chance of adapting to the future of change.

Our human controlled reality is causing the destruction of the true reality, Nature. Which in turn is causing our own extinction as well as countless others. 150 Species. Every Day. THREE HUNDRED AND SIXTY FIVE DAYS A YEAR.
We need to remember our ancient wisdom of protecting and nurturing the land that feeds us. Gives us everything we have today from your celery to your cell phone. We have stopped focusing on Gaia and have focused one our INDIVIDUAL selfs. We want to pretend we fight for each other but we do not. Fighting for country might make you think you are fighting for “us”. However if there is an “us” then there is a “them”, and some how the powers that be are tricking us into believing that all of your problems and everyone else’s problems along with the world’s problems will be completely fixed if we just blow “them” up in spectacular fashion. There is only us on this planet, we are all in this together no matter what comes out way. So why destroy ourselves instead of work together to better everything? Does that not sound better than competing for more, more, MORE!? I digress.

As Terrance McKenna put it, culture is not your friend. Culture is insane. It will not survive the future because it cannot do anything but perpetuate itself in unsustainable ways…until it can’t. Then it’s gone. And what kind of world will he have left?

A Primal Future

When all the conveniences of modern living stop then I believe the world will fall into complete disarray. It will most likely be a series of events or even one big one but we will involuntarily transition into a primal world where nature takes the reigns again and our species especially will have a hell of a time adapting. Non-human species will more than likely thrive once the iron grip that the current consciousness has on the planet loses its hold. Our changing climate will be a daunting challenge but we as a species need to think like a non-human, get in touch with our primal side. Build your mind like a Philosopher, Savage, and Farmer all into one. Meditate often, let your mind relax and reflect. Build your body like the great warriors of old. Cultivate the land for you and everyone else.

More on this later…my muse has left me.

The Beginning – Need vs Want

Image

There are so many questions in this world, aren’t there?  …See what I did there?  In all seriousness though, there are so many questions on health, nutrition, toxins in the air that affect the body, and how to live off the land and still be profitable.  All of which are validated questions that have been unanswered to so many people, and to me it really does seem like the questions are only increasing, no matter how much self-educating we do. That’s a big reason why we came up with this blog – we want to be able to take at least a large handful of those questions, and answer as many as we can through life experience, meditation and research.  Our hope and goal is to be able to do this while providing our fellow community a fun learning experience, that hopefully one day we can also provide as a ‘hands on’ experience.

If you weren’t born ‘rich’ with the paper that we know today as money, then you will more than likely have more respect for ‘material’ things.  Material meaning more than what you actually need.  There is a big difference between need and want.  This is something I owe my mother (oh, no!) for instilling into my brain many years ago.

We all want that fancy big white-picket-fenced house on the water, with the 50-foot yacht and the pool boy (or girl)… but surely we do not need all of that.  Most of us wouldn’t know what to do with that large of a house anyway!  More and more people around the globe are realizing that less is more, and I agree immensely with this.  I myself grew up in a number of different homes ranging from a 1.5 storey wartime home to a trailer, and not once did I feel inadequate because of it – thanks again, Mom!  As long as you have a place to call home, and that home is filled with love and food, you are almost all set for life… almost. For most people, this is enough however, and that’s completely fine with me!  But that’s not what we are aiming for here.  Our goals in life include how to make our home sustainable, profitable (via food, DIY projects, crafts to sell, providing shelter for our loved ones, etc) so that we are able to spend time at home, and not at a JOB.

Sustainability is one of the most difficult things I have come to know about.  I say that because there was a point in time where I was very ignorant of how much you can do/change the things you already own to make them more efficient.  This area of expertise has definitely grown between myself and Nick (he’s the ‘N’ in the TNT =) ).  One of the areas that we will touch on a lot is how to change the items you use every day, and make them work for you instead of the other way around.  This, as well as growing your own food… which means freeing up some of your hard-earned cash for creating your own household products, which in turns make a better, healthier, and happier YOU!

My main focus is to learn how to enjoy this awesome life as a human for as long as I can, like we were meant to!  I am continuing to learn about things on a daily basis, and I am excited to share my findings with you.  I hope this blog can fulfill at least a small portion of what you’ve been searching for on this life’s journey.

With Love,

TNT.  ❤
