You're so far ahead of the curve that I look forward to the book release immensely.

Speaking as a raw vegan of nearly eight years' duration, I take great exception to your assertion that humans have lost the ability to survive on same for any length of time. Whole, fresh, ripe, raw, organic fruits and vegetables to not only survive, but *thrive*. Would that the Venn intersection between the peak-resource-aware and the raw-food-aware weren't so vanishingly tiny, else it'd be fruit trees a-go-go all up in here...

I am looking forward to reading this. As someone striving to pre-adapt to the realities of resource limitations, I think the ideas presented will be an important framework for HOW to go about choosing which objects, habits, practices and relationships to keep and nurture, and what to reject and eliminate from my life.

Congratulations Dmitry! This is the future we move towards... a future in which mankind is in harmony with his environment and inner self. It is an opportunity to regain what this society does not offer - close social ties, deeper friendships, uncertainty and excitement, work for love and life instead of money, rewarding virtue over vice, and time for much introspection and growth. It is a far better future than most realize. Shrinking the technosphere will make for a stronger race, both physically and metaphysically. Those of weak moral and ethical character will evolve or pass forever into the annals of history. This change not a death sentence for any who would evolve though, and it is not to be feared; insanity can be cured.

I wonder how many of your readers have considered creating their 150 strong now. There is no need to wait. We have the luxury of time in which to assess character, skills, and personality matches. We have the freedom to explore these relationships with little pressure. We even have the ability to operate as 150 strong within a larger community; this affords us the chance to bond today, and to assess our skills so we can develop strategically while the going is easy. We can have a great time becoming 150 strong, and we can reap the benefits as soon as we start. We don't need a collapse to make it happen; willpower and conviction will serve just fine.
