The free CD
included with the five book special
There is included with the FIVE book special for TEAM Leaders a free CD, so that you will be able to reproduce Society AFTER Doomsday and the Reconstruction Paper, should you be able to activate a computer and printing equipment after the Catastrophe.
At first I thought to send out a CD with every book, but then I realized that didn't make sense for the following reasons:
2. If they want to check out the book first before ordering five, then they will end up paying $130 for six books and the free CD instead of $100 for five books and the free CD, if in their good intentions they ever get around to it.
3. If I included a free CD with every book - then people who ordered five books would get 5 five CDs. Those additional CDs are not of any real use to them because:
b. If they loaned a book to a friend, then pretty much the same thing, because it doesn't make a convenient book mark.
c. If they are handing/loaning out the book 'afterwards', the CD is not likely to be of general use because of a general lack of electricity.
d. One CD at a local central location is sufficient for a post-holocaust situation while on the other hand, many books are needed.
5. My main goal is to create nucleii for LERN locations by getting five books into as many locales as possible, so that people will put at least one book in one local public library and have loaners for friends. Using the CD as an incentive for that purpose makes much more sense than sending them out more helter skelter where they will just be lost and therefore wasted. I welcome any better ideas on this approach.
The CD is designed to help you with RECONSTRUCTION of your community - which you can think of as a three step process:
Step 2. The book, Society AFTER Doomsday, gives you step by step directions for the process that you need to go through to establish LERNs for the reconstruction of society. You are much better prepared if you have read and understood this information ahead of time and you are many times better off if you are in contact with others around you who also already understand the information. It will seem inconsistent that I have said that I don't want to distribute "Society AFTER Doomsday" as an E-book when in point of fact - the CD contains the book in PRINTING format. So, yes, you do in fact get an E-copy of the book but we do not not sell "Society AFTER Doomsday" as an E-book and do not want it distributed as an E-book before the catastrophe. I have made the analogy that it would be like selling someone an empty fire extinguisher. Having an empty extinguisher is worse than having none at all, because it gives one a confidence in having it - but then when they need it, they can't use it, and that would be the same for the book if it was locked up on a non-operating computer.
For the POST-Holocaust situation the book is Copyleft. Until then it is copyrighted so that we can continue to distribute it and pay for the distribution. Even before the holocaust you are welcome to print and distribute 'The Paper'.
Step 3. On the CD you also have OVER 3,700 files of other information that may prove very important to have after the catastrophe. Unless you have the CD, it is very unlikely that you will have otherwise gathered all this information together.
While there is an IMMENSE amount of information on this CD, in fact – thousands of books, still, it is very selective information. Key parts of it, for all practical purposes, are unavailable except through Ark Two. None of this information is ‘secretive’. We also make it available on our web site for free download - so far from this being a sales pitch to try to get you to buy something, we are trying to get it out to everyone as freely as we can, and we want you to share it also. At the web site you and others can pick and choose what you want to download but there is far too much to try to download – especially when it is readily available on the CD.
The following is a broad outline of what is on the CD - so that you can see why it is important. Let me emphasize again – that it is important that the CD be widely dispersed and disseminated so that the information will be available where people can make use of it.
The CD is divided into the following sections or folders:
A SAFE Solution (3%)(22meg)
that create the structure for SAFE in each state.
By having this here I hope to preserve that structure –
so that every state and location will have it available to implement –
and thus be able to structure themselves to link and interact with neighboring states - and Ark Two, should Ark Two survive.
Community Reconstruction (5%)(40meg)
on such subjects as:
There is a lot more – including the 94 page Red Cross Mass Feeding Handbook.
There is for example - the 210 page manual about how to take unrelated equipment such as from a dairy processing plant and to create an antibiotic manufacturing facility. This was prepared for:
OAK RIDGE NATIONAL LABORATORY
Oak Ridge, Tennessee
MARTIN MARIETTA ENEGY SYSTEMS, Inc
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY
-----We also propose modification of antibiotic production equipment, material, and processes that would allow expedient production of broad-spectrum antibiotics under the austere conditions following a nuclear attack.
There is information in the CD not only about traditional medicine but also a 477 page manual on Herbal Medicine plus 36 Files containing an alphabetic listing of hundreds of herbs and their uses.
There are also the traditional survivalist books about medicine:
The latest revised versions of the classics:
505 page Where There Is No Doctor (along with an additional Spanish version)
In addition to the above, because of the severe threat and probability of a PANDEMIC being associated with a word-wide catastrophe I have included what I consider are the essential:
159 page Pandemic Reference Guide
52 page Infection Control for Shelters
There is no information regarding fallout per se – because that is a ‘preparation’ and ‘immediate recovery’ thing whereas the CD is concerned with long term effects and the reconstruction of society.
There are here:
The 168 page External Radiation Manual
Most importantly I include the 133 page manual for
I consider this latter manual of such significance for the decades to come, and its total unavailability elsewhere, that in my estimation it alone justifies the circulation of this CD.
I also include my concerns and solutions about UV.
Community Recovery (80%)(560meg)
on such subjects as.
136 page book on raising goats because I see this as a fast path to milk for children.
a booklet on fence planning.
basic seed saving .
small farm operation.
small oilseed production
use of worms to make fertilizer.
and most exclusive of all - the use of specific microbes to remove radiation from the soil.
This latter is very specialized information that I have gathered from the top experts on the subject – and which you are not going to find elsewhere.
b. how to preserve eggs
c. how to make jerky and jellies
d. how to do pickling
e. and loads of information about how to do food drying
There is a 176 page manual on Food Sanitation and another 591 page manual that is considered almost a ‘bible’ on Food Processing Technology.
One is 186 pages on Bridge Inspection, Maintenance and Repair. There may be many miles of undamaged roads but the bridges are going to need be inspected.
The same applies to maintenance of railway tracks.
Renewal of Religion (4% including 25meg Ocean)
All that I have listed above is but a small fraction of what you will find on the CD. 1% (8meg) of it is about Ark Two, 3% (20meg) of it is concerned with survival and 2% (19meg) of it is the publications masters. I think the key is not that there is so much information - but rather that when the time comes that you need it - you will find it organized in a useful way.
