When you reach your goal.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This is the fortieth in a series of posts reflecting on our willingness to remember and the quality of that knowledge. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
A still. What a challenge! Well, considering that we have gathered some expertise in glass blowing, I suppose we could try to make our own still. The holder for the glass bulbs could be made of terra cotta or glass as well. I can’t see myself talking about metal because we have tried to avoid metalwork so far, and I think that’s a good thing.
So let’s summarize? Cultures, enough to eat, enough for fermentation. Glass blowing, I know, the instruments of this trade are mainly made of metal, we’ll have a look at that later, for goodness sake…and that’s it! I think that with these elements, we can think of being relatively autonomous. They represent, in my opinion, critical aspects of our intellectual survival.
As far as health status is concerned, there is still the treatment of illnesses. Failing to be able to save everyone’s life for lack of penicillin or other herbalist remedies, we could think of setting up quarantines. Does that sound familiar? It’s said to be a fairly effective technique. 😂
We could go on like this in other areas of knowledge and techniques, but I think we’ve done enough. I hope I have allowed you to understand two things:
- The knowledge and techniques we use every day are extremely valuable.
- They are a challenge to identify and simplify in order to find those that could be used at any time, by anyone, in a situation where the very foundations of our civilization were disappearing.
