Meditation Notes 1

Lately I’ve been practicing some meditation techniques, per my stated goals in “Winter Rewilding 2017.” What follows will be contradictory, kind of crazy, and provisional. But the techniques call for absolute freedom of mind, so I’m going to just let loose and see what kind of insights they yield. As stated in “On My Ignorance and […]

Site Updates and Possible Closure

Hello readers, I’ve updated the site’s SSL certificate, which has been giving many of you security warnings. I have also fixed all the links in The Wildernist / Hunter Gatherer Archives.

The Approaching Transhumanism

Dr. Laura Drake blogs at PostHumanity.ai. The Approaching Transhumanism and the Inhibition of Ethical Discourse, by Laura Drake, Ph.D. Amidst the never-ending chatter about matters like health care, taxes, and race relations, a new postindustrial power elite is rising in the background whose agenda transcends, and threatens to affect everyone a great deal more than, […]

The Lessons of Easter Island

Source Easter Island is one of the most remote, inhabited places on earth. Only some 150 square miles in area, it lies in the Pacific Ocean, 2,000 miles off the west coast of South America and 1,250 miles from the nearest inhabitable land of Pitcairn Island. At its peak the population was only about 7,000. […]

Industrial Civilization Could Not Be Rebuilt

A suggestion, for the sake of thought: If industrial civilization collapsed, it probably could not be rebuilt. Civilization would exist again, of course, but industry appears to be a one-time experiment. The astronomist Fred Hoyle, exaggerating slightly, writes: It has often been said that, if the human species fails to make a go of it […]

An Ecological View of the Indian

Source Most environmentalists tacitly assume that primitive people lived in ecological harmony with their surroundings, and had little impact on their habitat. Implicit in this assumption is the idea that the environmental ravages of Western civilization are the result of a fall from the primitive earthly paradise, and western European cultural roots are to blame […]
