Why Nature And Being A Skilled Survivalist Matters To You And Your Health
What does it mean to be a survivalist in the 21st century? During the last decade, we have seen technology increase at a rapid pace. During this period many people who lost their connection with the land, nature, and survivalism. To many, they see technology as a crutch that allows them to be lazy and live an easy life. Unfortunately, this has caused generations of people to loose many skills that their ancestors had known. Skills like making fire, collecting water, and hunting have been lost by entire generations. While these skills may seem unnecessary in the modern world, this just isn’t the case for two reasons. During this short piece, I will break down why it is critical to keep this skills in your life.
First, history tells us that occasionally the world reverts into a pre-technological age where once again people will need to learn how to procure their own water and food. You can look at many ancient societies like Rome or Atlantis as examples of advanced civilizations suddenly disappearing from the earth. There’s much debate about why this happens, but many believe it has to do with these populations actually killing themselves off with advanced technologies. Other reasons could be that these advanced civilizations ran out of resources because too many people were grouped into one small area. Nature seems to go in different intervals and cycles. For many, they think this cycle is simply a 1-year cycle or a 10-year cycle. but there’s actually cycles of much larger time frames like 100 years or more. It seems that the “super cycles” are the ones that catch humanity off guard because they are multi-generational and unless this knowledge was passed down they don’t have access to it. For example take flood planes, there’s a lot of places that only flood every 100 years. You could be living at a place for 99 years and never see a flood, and then suddenly everything is under water. That’s why it’s critical to know how to take care of yourself regardless of if you will need it or not according to Skilled Survivor.
The other reason it’s important to keep and know primitive skills has to do with a science called epigenetics. In short, this is the science of genes and cells and the information that is stored within them. The human body and mind is capable of amazing feet that the majority of people just can’t comprehend. In fact, the brain and your DNA has information that is not easily accessed, especially if your living in modern society. The reason is these more primal instincts are only accessed during certain times when your doing certain things. For example, when you go into nature and build a fire you are able to access ancestral memories you otherwise wouldn’t be able too. Another example of this would be when your out hunting. During a hunt, your body reverts back to the memories of your ancestors and the amazing hunts they went on, the near-death experiences, and the successful kills. These memories are then translated to you when your participating in the same experiences. This is the primary reason it is so important to get out into nature and experience more than just city life. The internet and technology is relatively new so you have no epigenetics associated with these activities, therefore you are only accessing the lower level of your being. By getting primal and back to nature it opens up new levels of awareness and understanding in your brain you wouldn’t otherwise be able to access. These new levels of brainpower are now unlocked and can be used for daily tasks like business or relationships.
