What Is An Emergency Kit?

On paper, an emergency kit is a self-contained bag that has all the necessary supplies you need to survive. In reality, it’s one of your last line of defenses against the spread of disease, hunger, cold, thirst & fear. The basic explanation of an emergency kit may be good enough for people to start preparing. However, in our experience, people genuinely embrace preparing when an emergency hits close to home. It could be as simple as a power outage or as extreme as a tornado. The fact is, you realize that you’re not prepared, and it scares you.

To help you answer the question “what is an emergency kit?” we’ve set up two scenarios using a similar impact event. Scenario one depicts a typical family’s response to an emergency. Scenario two shows us what a family can do if they start preparing for disasters.

Scenario One – Unprepared Family

You hear a loud noise, then all power goes out. It’s dark. You can’t find the flashlight, when you do, you realize it needs batteries. Now you can’t find the extra batteries. You open the fridge door to get food, only to realize the food is spoiled. The tap water stopped working, and your kids are crying because they’re hungry. You need to know what’s going on, so you turn on your phone, only to realize it’s not working. All the networks are down. You don’t have a radio, because who has a radio these days. It’s getting dark, and the heat stopped working. It’s cold, so you wrap your family in whatever blankets you can find. You start to smell something weird in the air.

Scenario Two – Prepared Family

You hear a loud noise, then all power goes out. It’s dark, so you get your emergency kit from the closet. You take out the emergency candle and light it using matches found inside. It brightens up the whole room. You take out your emergency flashlight and hand it off to your kid. You ask him to look for the deck of cards inside the emergency kit so you can set up a game of “go fish.” In the meantime, you take out the emergency radio and listen for any updates. You’ve learned that a terrorist bombing took place and poisonous gas is spreading quickly throughout the city. The police have ordered everyone to shelter-in-place.

You take your family to a room with no windows, and use duct tape to seal off all the cracks in the doors all without scaring your kids or losing your turn at “go-fish.” Your kids start complaining about being hungry. So you take out emergency freeze-dried food from your emergency kit and provide a delicious gourmet meal for your family. All it took was water from your emergency water pouches. You do a quick inventory of your supplies and realize you have enough food and water to sustain yourself for three days.

An emergency kit allows your family to better cope with many types of emergency scenarios, from power outages to spoiled food and generating heat. An emergency kit is there to help when you need it most.

Shock – When There Is No Doctor

A person who has suffered severe injury is at risk of developing shock – a steadily worsening condition that can be described as a “running down of life forces”.

First aid can minimize the development of shock if the possibility is recognized well in time. In fully developed shock, minimal first aid is possible, but it is still important until the victim can be got to a medical facility.

In medical terminology, ‘shock’ refers not to an emotional upset, but to a physical condition – a failure of the heart to provide adequate circulation to all parts of the body. It is caused by a loss of blood fluid, typically following severe injury.

When there is severe bleeding, the reduced volume of blood in the body results in a weakened heartbeat and inadequate supply of oxygen and other nutrients to the tissues. In particular, the centres in the brain which regulate respiration, heart action and blood pressure no longer work adequately. A vicious circle is therefore set in motion.


Below are the situations that can cause different types of shock:

Hemorrhagic Shock

also called ‘bleeding shock’. This is the most common form of serious shock resulting from the loss of blood, as in burns/crushing injuries. The bleeding may be internal or external. If the person is in a state of dehydration or is sweating profusely, it can hasten the onset of shock. This can typically happen if a burns/crushing injury occurs in a workplace of high temperature.

Cardiogenic Shock

Also called ‘heart shock’. It results from a failure of the heart to pump blood adequately to all parts of the body. Typical causes are: electrical shock, heart attacks and injury to the heart. Diseases like low blood pressure and oedema of the ankles, if untreated, may do enough damage to cause cardiogenic shock.

Neurogenic Shock

Also called ‘nerve shock’. It results from the failure of the nervous system to control the diameter of the blood vessels. The blood vessels dilate beyond the point where the available blood can fill up the new volume. Blood no longer fills the system adequately, but pools in the blood vessels in certain areas of the body.

Typically, this kind of shock is due to nerve paralysis caused by spinal cord or brain injury. Severe blows to the abdomen can also disrupt the nerves, bringing about neurogenic shock.

Respiratory Shock

Also called ‘lung shock’. This results from a failure of the lungs to provide enough oxygen for circulation to the tissues. Watch out for it in cases of fractured ribs or sternum, deep chest wounds, neck/spinal cord injury or airway obstruction.

Metabolic Shock

Also called ‘body fluid shock’. It may occur in cases of severe diarrhoea, vomiting or polyuria (excessive urination). These conditions cause the loss of fluids from the bloodstream.

Anaphylactic Shock

Also called ‘allergy shock’. This is a life-threatening reaction of the body to an allergen (something to which the person is extremely allergic).


The most significant symptom of shock is:


Other symptoms may include:

Restlessness and fear

The signs to look out for are:

Profuse (external) bleeding
Fainting/Lack of responsiveness
Rapid and weak pulse
Rapid and shallow breathing
Marked drop in blood pressure (as low as 90/60, or below)
Pale, moist and cool skin. Often profuse sweating
Lacklustre eyes, dilated pupils
General restlessness

It’s important to remember that, immediately after serious injury (for example), the victim may appear tough and resistant, but that, inside him, the machinery of shock may have been set in motion. It may be a matter of some minutes before he shows the typical signs, or it may be several hours.


A person in shock must be got to medical attention urgently. In the meanwhile:

Ensure an adequate airway (if the person is breathing), by positioning his head properly. If he is not breathing, provide mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Control the bleeding. Direct pressure on the injury site is the quickest and most efficient way to do this. Do not waste time hunting for a dressing – use a finger or hand directly over the wound, and maintain pressure until the bleeding is stanched. (Even though you may be contaminating the wound, the risk of uncontrolled bleeding far outweighs that of possible infection. The loss of blood volume is particularly life-threatening for a person in shock.)
Keep the patient warm. The aim is to keep his body temperature as near to normal as possible. Remove any wet clothing if possible, and wrap the patient loosely in blankets or in an overcoat. But do not allow the patient to overheat: the extra heat may draw to the skin’s surface a large volume of blood from the depths of the body where it is needed for the essential organs of life. Do not move patients with head/neck/spine injuries in order to place a blanket under them.
Ensure rest and position. Treat the patient where he is (except if you’re in a danger zone – fire, fumes, collapsing building, etc.) The more at rest a shock patient remains, the better his chances of survival. Avoid rough or excessive handling, since body motion has a tendency to aggravate shock. In particular, beware of moving a patient who may have a fracture – especially if his back is involved. If there are serious injuries to the extremities, keep the patient flat on his back. If the patient is conscious, but appears to have respiratory or heart problems, he may be most comfortable (and breathe more easily) in a semi-reclining position, with his head raised a little.
Give nothing by mouth. Do not give food/medications or even tea or coffee by mouth. The patient may vomit, in which case anything he brings up may be aspirated into his windpipe and choke him.
Reassure the patient. Reducing mental anxiety plays a great role in warding off shock. Talk to the patient with calm confidence, explaining your actions as reassuringly as possible. Tactfully but firmly clear away any agitated or demoralizing bystanders.

Finally, remember that in situations where shock is a distinct possibility (such as significant blood loss), it is advisable to carry out all the above steps, even if the patient’s condition seems quite stable. The bottomline is: when in doubt, treat for shock.

The Science-Art Solution to Climate Change

During my 1978 Artist-in-residency at the University of Adelaide I wrote to black hole physicists around the world pointing out that when Einstein’s mathematical theories were subjected to the universal forces obeying the law of equal and opposite reaction, then later his worldview of physics reality would have to be rewritten.

My theories were recorded in Australian newspaper articles and were attacked by influential scientists as being nonsense. However, two world famous black hole physicists, John Taylor and Remo Ruffini, came to my defence and the argument became a topic of international scientific speculation.

In 1979 the Science Unit of Australian National Television documented the life’s work of seven world famous scientists and included my Science-Art theories into their eight-part series, The Scientists – Profiles of Discovery. This was screened internationally and my section was sub-titled, Pope – The Catalyst. The Director of the Science Unit of Australian National Television considered that my research was acting as a catalyst for the introduction of a more advanced biological science. He held that my theories held information demonstrating that Einstein’s mathematical structure of reality does not apply to biological systems.

A human catalyst does not contribute monumental acts of intellect to the World. He or she somehow allows great scientific changes to occur by introducing a very small amount of information that makes great changes happen. In my case for example, once Plato’s ethical sacred geometrical mathematics was shown to belong to biological science then quantum mechanical mathematical logic begins to fall apart.

Plato held that both ethical and unethical artistic thought-forms existed. These were created by the functioning of the magnetic properties of lodestone, which he associated with the workings of a universal life force. He related electromagnetic geometrical properties of lightning to be interacting with the evolution of consciousness. This process can be associated with the formation of other geometrical patterns in nature, such as when sunlight causing evaporation of wet mud results in the formation of geometrical patterns. Einstein’s mathematics on the other hand, can be considered illusionary, being based upon a geometrical point having no width, breadth or depth. Plato referred to such mathematicians as prisoners forced to obey the shadowy illusions of reality described in his Parable of the Cave.

Norbert Wiener, the father of modern cybernetics, invented it as a weapon of destruction. He later realized it was far more dangerous than all out atomic warfare. Wiener then realized that his evolutionary Progress in Physics belonged to Plato’s ethical cybernetics mathematics. Cybernetic geometry is about emotional consciousness existing in two forms, one biologically creative and the other biologically destructive. The creative cybernetics is programmed to utilize aspects from a multidimensional universe beyond the comprehension of primitive tribal science. The extreme aggressiveness of the thought-form functioning belonging to the mathematicians held captive within Plato’s cave of illusory reality was simply a normal state of evolving tribal consciousness.

Einstein’s obligation to aggressive tribal science is made clear within a Chinese text of the oldest military treatise in the world. “The art of war is of vital importance to the State. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected”. Plato’s saviours in his futuristic The Republic can be considered to be his “Guardians” of a new artistic creative biological science developing the forces equal and opposite to the primitive forces of chaotic destruction. Plato’s ethical mathematics appears to be about how civilization can become part of the health of the universe in order to avoid the extinction that happened to the seemingly warlike armour-plated dinosaur fossils unearthed by ancient Greek explorers.

DNA now indisputably demonstrates that this aggressive compulsive action for a species to harm itself is now undergoing a human survival thought-form transition. Tribal science’s destructive cybernetic thought-form actions can be replaced by its creative cybernetic reactionary counterpart. Plato’s Academy as a medical institute, in the light of recent Science-Art neurological discoveries, is clearly entering into a creative era, replacing the destructive cybernetic mathematical Art of War with Plato’s ethical sacred geometrical cybernetics. After some 2400 years the nature of Plato’s antidote to this scientific dilemma has become evident, as is explained in this article.

Plato’s Academy was established 45 years after the Golden Age of Greek ‘tribal’ Democracy collapsed when its leader, Pericles, died of the great plague that decimated the Athenian population during its war with the Spartans. It became accepted knowledge among educated Greeks that “tribal democracy carried some sort of emotional thought-form disease.” As Dr Warren Lidz at Bentley College’s Department of Philosophy has pointed out, “Greek philosophy can be adequately understood only if one recognizes that it arose in conjunction with ancient medical theory”.

During the Golden age of Islamic Science the Arab mathematician and physicist, Ibn al-Haytham, commonly referred to as the Father of modern optics, proclaimed that Plato’s optical mathematical science embraced an ethical component. His research introduced ethical sacred geometrical theories to Western tribal science. However, he remained confused about associating ethical mathematics with Plato’s optical concept of infinity. My Research Centre in Australia decided to resolve this centuries old mathematical dilemma, once and for all, in order to understand how tribal science can make the transition to its human survival creative mathematical counterpart.

My attendance at the 1979 Marcel Grossman Meeting on General Relativity at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, provided me with the opportunity to converse with Neils Bohr’s colleague, Kun Huang, leading the Chinese Physics Delegation at the World Summit Meeting of Science. We resolved how the Centre in Australia could become the first research institute in the world to demonstrate how the life-force mathematically directs the evolution of life-forms. Plato’s ethical sacred Science-Art geometry was inscribed into the World’s seashell fossil record and therefore computer programs could determine if Plato’s ethical optical life-force mathematics did or did not evolve to infinity. If they did then Einstein’s mathematics would clearly be illusory as Plato predicted.

During the 1980s the Centre designed computer programs using Plato’s infinite mathematics to measure the direction that the life-force was taking evolution in. Einstein had no idea that Plato’s infinite mathematical system was based upon fractal geometrical logic. It was noted by the Smithonian/NASA Astrophysics Data System, The Concept of Fractal Cosmos: 1. Anaxagoras’ Cosmology in 2001, that Anaxagoras had developed infinite fractal mathematics to explain the existence of the life-force. Einstein did not realize that Anaxagoras’ electromagnetic geometrical logic was based upon a biological aspect of infinite fractal geometrical logic. To Einstein that was an impossibility as his quantum mathematical worldview demanded the extinction of all life in the universe, so it could not be evolving toward infinity.

Also during the 1980s, the Centre programmed Plato’s ethical infinite fractal Science-Art logic within computer programs to generate the evolving future seashell geometrical forms from their earlier ancestral fossilized forms. The seashell simulations generated, matched perfectly with present day seashells. This demonstrated the presence of a life-force guiding an evolutionary development of species that would, according to the mathematics, continue infinitely. To the Centre this demonstrated that there was a need for a new understanding regarding Einstein’s mathematical worldview. Clearly it is now necessary for his worldview to be balanced with a Newtonian equal and opposite force, a life-force, that in biological systems enables the evolution of life-forms to continue infinitely. Whilst prevailing tribal science acclaimed certain optical aspects of the seashell experiment it had no interest whatsoever in any criticism of Einstein’s worldview.

The world’s largest technological research institute, IEEE in Washington, acclaimed the seashell findings as an important optical mathematic discovery from 20th Century scientific literature. It was placed alongside such names as Louis Pasteur and Francis Crick. The Institute for Basic Research in the USA and the Centre’s mathematician later transposed the optical mathematical discovery into a physics format. As a result of this and further investigation it was noted that when Einstein’s quantum mechanical mathematics was used to generate the seashell simulations, only deformed carcinogenic images were obtainable. Therefore, Einstein’s quantum mechanical symmetrical mathematics was seen by the Centre as carcinogenic, which is consistent with what would be expected given his mechanistic science being governed by the law of chaos.

From this it now appears evident that the processes of life enjoy the advantage of a force that is able to bring order into what would otherwise degrade into chaos. Most importantly, this indicates that this new understanding of physics is set to bring about a revolution in the treatment of cancer.

This paper is being written to explain that Plato’s human survival cybernetic mathematics is directly associated with the ability to resolve many inconsistencies between our success in developing technologies that serve humanity and the increasing negative impacts of technologies on living systems. It now appears evident that tribal science has a fundamental inability to comprehend any concept involving an ethical understanding of the laws of cybernetic physics.

It is not true that Thales of Miletus during the pre-Socratic era of ancient Greece was the Father of modern Western science. His geometrical foundations upholding biological science are the very opposite to Einstein’s primitive tribal science that is very successful when dedicated to quantum mechanical atomic warfare. While Einstein’s mathematical structure was based upon the fantasy of an imaginary geometrical point, Thales’ structure was based upon an electromagnetic geometrical point interacting mathematically with the electromagnetic biosphere.

Thales experimented with the magnetic properties of lodestone to conclude that the life-force was electromagnetic. Many scientists agree that magnetic lodestone was created by lightning strikes on the mineral magnetite. Thales crushed lodestone into tiny particles revealing two different artistic geometrical patterns associated with the act of creation when electromagnetic light emerged from the dark abyss of chaos. One artistic magnetic geometrical pattern was about the forces of attraction and the other was about the forces of repulsion. Thales’ life-force consciousness had the ability to create universal purpose but only in association with its memory of chaotic reality. Both of the intelligent aspects of magnetic attraction and repulsion however, belong to the infinite purpose of creation. Thales’ life-force’s dominant creative purpose therefore, was to evolve away from unethical destructive chaos toward an ethical holographic consciousness. Einstein’s illusory geometrical worldview demanded that the life-force must return back into the chaos of the dark abyss that existed before the creation of electromagnetic light.

Isaac Newton, within his controversial published 28th Query Discussions, wrote that ancient Platonic Greek science had rejected the concept that gravity was first-caused by the mass of objects in space but was caused instead by something else, “which is certainly not mechanical”. By carefully researching ancient Greek science it becomes obvious that gravitational forces are associated with electromagnetic forces, a concept beyond the ability of tribal mathematical science to reason about.

Einstein developed his mathematical worldview from ancient Sumerian and Babylonian calendar mathematics, still in use today. During the 1970s my Science-Art research into the workings of a holographic universe established a special school for Indigenous Australians. As their tribal culture is the oldest one on earth I wanted to compare it with the later Mesopotamian mathematics.

Throughout Australia the Indigenous Dreamtime Ceremonies recall the existence of the last Ice Age as causing the Great Flood. The written linguistic art-forms originating from Mesopotamia had the gods of creation bringing about the Great Flood by using water from beneath the surface of the Earth. A life-force evolving consciousness can be assumed to have a memory of its past existence. Therefore some physics law should exist to explain why the Dreamtime thought-form memory was correct while Einstein’s development of Mesopotamian mathematical memory was not.

During the 19th Century the Danish scientist, Soren Kierkegaard, arguing from the Science-Art philosophies of Plato and Kant, proposed locating a law from the workings of the electromagnetic light of creation, which alluded to a more ennobling ethical future for humanity. He postulated that such a law could belong to the action of electromagnetic memory of an ancient past being recorded in living tribal memory.

It is obvious that such a biological law cannot be derived from Einstein’s quantum mechanical worldview derived from Mesopotamian calendar mathematics. However, neurologists are now considering that within a human survival computer program, governed by the biological first-cause principles of creative electromagnetic light, Kierkegaard’s proposed memory law should present itself. Neurologists consider it to be likely that the Australian Dreamtime ceremonies will provide reliable information supporting the evolutionary progress of a human survival physics belonging to the workings of a holographic universe.

Although an astute awareness of the new human survival science and technology can be visualized, the catalyst, the author of this article, remains in awe of those, who upon breaking free from prevailing illusory mathematical imprisonment, are capable of bringing it to fruition. Under prevailing tribal science law, mathematicians are unable to explore aspects of mathematical reality existing beyond Einstein’s worldview governed by the laws of chaos. However, millions of lively energetic people who avoid prevailing mathematics, as does the catalyst, might be pleased to learn how well balanced they are regarding Plato’s ethical cybernetic mathematical intelligence.

Plato’s ethical sacred geometric mathematics was about the electromagnetic zest of life learning how to balance the forces of nature in order to evolve toward infinity. His ethical biological cybernetic thought-form mathematics is the very opposite of the prevailing aggressive pandemic of cybernetic dysfunctional information. For example, crawling baby toddlers enjoy learning how to keep their balance when learning to walk under the surveillance of proud protective parents. This later becomes the spit-second cybernetic thought-form mathematical skills experienced by expert surfers as they emotionally interact with the array of forces generated by giant ocean waves breaking as they approach the shoreline.

This therefore can be seen as a natural human ability to cope with complex situations and is about future human survival and thrival, potentially to the satisfaction of scientists enjoying the balancing of forces such as those associated with global climate change.

DNA evidence proves that Einstein’s quantum mechanical atomic reality thought-form actions now transforming themselves into an equal and opposite reaction law functioning throughout universal reality. The time has arrived for tribal science’s mathematical structure to evolve from only the limited entropic form to incorporating its opposite creative form. Thales of Miletus is indeed the Father of this now emerging human survival science. His Science-Art theories are directly associated with the evolution of a living infinite electromagnetic holographic universe.

Anaxagoras was the first person to explain that the purpose of the nous-mind was to organize the conscious structure of the cosmos by creating two oppositely rotating electromagnetic motions having an exceptionally strong influence over living things. Both Aristotle and Plato commended Anaxagoras’ living nous-mind but insisted that its eventual purpose was to use the living rotating electromagnetic forms to generate ethical mathematics thought-form reality in the “best interests” of the infinite living universe. Evolutionary actions associated with the ethical “best interests” cybernetic thought-form reality are the opposite reactions to the thought-form cybernetics upholding The Art of War.

The historian Herodotus recorded that Thales was the first to be able to predict the year when a total solar eclipse would occur. The NASA archives have calculated that this occurred in 585 B.C. It is now a matter of life or death importance that the general public knows that NASA knew about Thales’ discovery but stated that nobody knows how he was able to geometrically predict it. Evidence exists showing that NASA’s archive statement is not correct.

The electromagnetic Golden Age of Danish Science was constructed upon Thales’ electromagnetic mathematical theories. James Maxwell formulated Anaxagoras’ infinite universal nous-mind into two revolving electromagnetic states of existence.

Maxwell’s electromagnetic radiation discovery linked light, electricity and magnetism into one state of reality embracing two mathematical components rotating in opposite directions in order to evolve universal consciousness. Living asymmetrical fields rotated anticlockwise and symmetrical mechanistic fields rotated clockwise. His scientific contemporaries, Immanuel Kant and Emmanuel Levinas, realized that the anticlockwise field was evolving Plato’s ethical thought-form consciousness within the creative artistic mind.

Levinas made the most important spiritual observation in the history of science. According to Levinas, an asymmetrical field rotating anticlockwise was the crucial first-cause principle governing the dynamics of all universal reality. Einstein’s later conviction that the symmetric fields that rotated clockwise belonged to the first-cause principle governing universal dynamics has now been shown to be incorrect. He did not know that the entropic workings of The Second Law of Thermodynamics, which he considered to be the supreme law of the universe, could be reversed by virtue of the law of equal and opposite reaction. An asymmetric field taking precedence as the first-cause principal ensures that the life process would not end in a return to the dark abyss but would be infinitely maintained.

Maxwell had researched very early Christian philosophy associated with Plato’s infinite ethical thought-form theories, as referred to within ancient Hebraic writings, which were later acclaimed during the Golden Age of Islamic Science. He warned that if Plato’s ethical electromagnetic Godlike geometric information was lost and “unrestrained materialism took root: it would sweep away the humanities, and reduce all that is good and noble, including the human mind, to “meaningless clashes of atoms”. Maxwell had correctly predicted that the mathematics belonging to Einstein’s unethical symmetrical aesthetic emotions would lead to atomic warfare. Norbert Wiener wrote about this but considered that the use of aggressive cybernetic mind control was far more dangerous than atomic warfare.

In 1857 Louis Pasteur published that the infinite dynamics of the universe were controlled by living first-cause asymmetrical electromagnetic mathematical principles rotating anticlockwise. Pasteur knew about Maxwell’s difference between living electromagnetic mathematics and mechanistic electromagnetic mathematics. He observed that a living electromagnetic dot under his microscope was being instructed by the electromagnetic biosphere to artistically draw a living bacterium. The drawings of the mathematical structure of the bacterium were being made by Thales’, Anaxagoras’ and Plato’s asymmetrical geometric artistic electromagnetic intelligence. On the other-hand Einstein’s sterile symmetrical atomic mathematics, while able to provide information needed to build destructive atomic bombs, was unable to interact with electromagnetic biosphere reality.

In 1905 Einstein published that the first principle universal field of creation rotated clockwise and that all life in the universe was sentenced to extinction due to the supremacy of his understanding of The Second Law of Thermodynamics. On the 21st of March, 2013, the European Planck Space Observatory recorded in detail that the ‘First Light’ created in the universe was asymmetrical, rotating anticlockwise. The Planck Observatory’s findings suggested that “A perplexing asymmetry in relic radiation may point to new physics”. However, tribal science’s aggressive global cybernetic momentary system banished the electromagnetic ethical mathematics upholding the Golden Age of Danish Science.

The financial empires associated with the electrification of North America used symmetrical mathematics to acquire vast wealth because they found that symmetrical mathematics generated 25% more profit than asymmetrical mathematics. To this day, the global economic system classifies asymmetrical or living electromagnetic mathematics as a plague. Tribal economic science must, at all times, reduce asymmetrical mathematical equations to meaninglessness, thereby negating the uniqueness of biological systems and ensuring that the mathematical basis of The Art of War reigns supreme.

The absolute seriousness of this artistic mathematical disease was recently outlined by the physicist Sabine Hossenfelder, a researcher into quantum gravity and modifications to the general theory of relativity at the Frankfurt Institute of Advanced Studies. Her June 2018 article entitled Lost in Math: How Beauty Leads Physics Astray, published in the international journal of science, Nature, describes the ugliness of physics as being further contaminated with “an unnatural compulsion to develop supersymmetry to keep Einstein’s illusion alive”. She asserted that in modern science “we are losing our way in a mathematical jungle, however beautiful”.

The above mentioned seashell experiment demonstrated that Professor Hossenfelder’s “an unnatural compulsion to develop supersymmetry to keep Einstein’s illusion alive” has been found to be a cybernetic mathematical form of cancer emanating from tribal science’s economic system. Neurologists are now associating that discovery, in order to further develop Plato’s ethical cybernetic geometrical antidote, with the diseased cybernetic mathematical pandemic, now preparing for the human species to participate in a global catastrophic reign of destruction.

The diseased aggressive emotions generated by Einstein’s symmetric mathematical worldview were aptly summarized by a professor familiar with Plato’s electromagnetic thought-form reality. Dr Timothy Morton of Rice University in Texas, in his book, Art in the Age of Asymmetry, points out that Plato “imagines artistic inspiration as an electromagnetic field” in which unethical symmetrical mathematical information, capable of inducing disease, functions as a “demonizing of art”. That corresponds to Hossenfelder’s assessment that it is unnatural to keep Einstein’s symmetric artistic mathematical illusions alive and reinforces Morton’s concern that humanity needs to understand that it can benefit by reappraising some of its core emotional artistic beliefs.

Now that the dual nature of the creation physics law performing its natural function is understood, the Platonic seashell geometrical discovery can be upgraded to generate sustainable human survival blueprint simulations. New aspects of neurological science information can be programmed into a relevant computer research program, governed by nous-mind infinite fractal logic. As both destructive tribal science and human survival science are integral aspects of human evolution, they can be entangled within a computer program in order to generate sustainable human survival blueprints. If the program is governed by Thales’ first-cause principle of creation logic, then sustainable human survival information will be generated rather than Einstein’s blueprints for atomic destruction as governed by the law of entropic chaos. At present the disintegrating remains of Einstein’s mistakenly presumed first-cause principle still presides over a global science thereby shackled to a law of chaos.

Carme Ruiz González, Senior Curator, Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí in her paper, Salvador Dali and Science – Beyond a mere curiosity, refers to Dali’s academic interests that “lay in the world of [Plato's] mathematics and optics”. Dali became convinced that Plato’s human survival information within plane geometry was about holographic images hidden within the flat plane surface of a painting. Dali’s Stereoscopic Museums around the world need two paintings side by side with the help of some high-tech equipment to reveal somewhat vague holographic images. However, Dali became the first Science-Artist in the World to discover that Plato’s human survival antidote message, hidden for some 2400 years is seen as holographic images within the geometrical flat plane surface of a painting.

Kant and Levinas’ conviction that the asymmetrical electromagnetic field within the creative artistic mind is now evolving exponentially, is now evident. Recently single paintings have been created by artists, which when viewed through asymmetric electromagnetic glasses, instantly reveal holographic multidimensional planes being traversed by curved forms.

During the 19th Century Charles Wheatstone invented the stereoscope. In his obituary published by the journal, Nature, October 1875, it was noted that “Leonardo da Vinci’s conviction that the flat plane of a painting could not contain a true 3D image, was incorrect and that Wheatstone had philosophically solved the problem”. Wheatstone was familiar with curvature optics while Leonardo never referred to curvature optics, in his Book of Notes.

The era of Leonardo’s artistic tribal science mechanistic genius can now be seen to be being replaced by Plato’s asymmetrical electromagnetic human survival era, belonging to what Dr Timothy Morton refers to as “Art in the Age of Asymmetry”. The optical curvature electromagnetic mathematics belonged to artistic optical forces that Leonardo could not possibly comprehend. As the chief engineer of an army, the energy information that could, without any scientific explanation, suddenly have a small child skip and jump for joy about being alive, was well beyond his engineering responsibilities. His responsibility was to honour the Art of War.

Plato’s Academy was formed to include ancient spiritual biological research information. Later during the Golden Age of Islamic Science in the 12th and 13th Centuries Islamic, Hebraic and Christian scholars worked together at the Toledo Translator Schools to re-translate ancient biological spiritual sciences including early writings from India and China. That same spiritual goodwill is now needed to allow a computer program, governed by a Godlike first-cause principle of the electromagnetic light of creation, to generate a new science moving toward infinity rather than one moving back to the chaos of the dark abyss.

Einstein’s diseased mathematics was compatible with the philosophy of science belonging to the mathematician Rene Descartes, commonly referred to as the Father of modern philosophy. The goodwill ethos of the Toledo Translator School will be needed to further examine the observation by the Nobel Laureate in Medicine, David Hubel, that Descartes’ mathematics was seriously diseased. Hubel echoed the Plato-seashell geometrical experimental findings, which demonstrated that tribal science was diseased. He endorsed the findings of the neurologist, Antonio Damasio, who in his book Descartes’ Error, published in 1994 diagnosed the mathematician as having an unstable psychopathic mentality. During the 1989 Science-Art Project sponsored by the Hollywood Thalian Mental Health Oganization in Los Angeles, it had also been pointed out that Descartes’ Proclamation, I think therefore I am was psychologically unbalanced due to its omission of human feelings.

Georg Cantor, acclaimed to be one of the greatest mathematicians in history, was convinced that prevailing tribal science was infected by a mental disorder as, “a form of myopia that destroys the possibility of seeing the actual infinite”, which “occurs all around us and even inhabits our minds”. The Toledo Translator School’s emotional tolerance is required to consider and discuss that the form of myopia preventing the ability to see the actual infinite is a fear genetically instilled over the centuries by tribal religious persuasions needed to prepare tribes for inevitable mortal conflict. The new enemy that must be mastered requires a science for humanity to successfully respond to the forces of climate change.

It is unproductive to arrange forums to discuss such emotional issues with people when the diseased monetary system is bringing about merciless global cybernetic chaos. People all over the world are being terrorized by governments when they protest that they have no employment opportunities to obtain such things as food, water, housing, education and medical care. The oppressed voting people of the world are realizing that the traditional illusory words of tribal wisdom are meaningless. When they understand that the Art of tribal war is now obsolete then Humanity can begin to face up to its current challenges, particularly climate change. As Norbert Wiener, the inventor of the predominate cybernetic warfare has stated, Plato’s ethical cybernetic mathematics exists to develop technologies to master such forces of nature.

Evolving electromagnetic thought-form mathematics’ activity interacts with the evolving electromagnetic biosphere. Holographic consciousness matures in tandem with infinite creative purpose, as the Plato-seashell geometrical experiment revealed. Therefore, human survival science can be programmed within a computer to generate sustainable technology blueprint survival simulations. These blueprints will incorporate Plato’s life-force cybernetic creative mathematics and will provide living balancing mastery over the opposite forces that tend to degrade living systems, such as the forceful Arts of War-making.

It is emotionally difficult for people to understand that Kant and Levinas considered that aesthetically pleasing art was unethical whereas sacred electromagnetic art incorporating the wisdom arising from asymmetry, was thereby ethical and therefore more beautiful. A simple example is warranted. The mathematical programming of gambling machines uses electromagnetic artistic sound and colour vibrations that can induce heroin-like addictions that create moral and financial bankruptcies. Billions of dollars in Australian governmental revenue each year are generated by this corrupting mathematics, which also is associated with the mathematics upholding the diseased global monetary system.

AMCHAM, the American Chamber of Commerce, incorrectly states “In Plato’s Dialogues cybernetics is the proper governance of the provinces” and that “cybernetic” can be considered to mean “related to cyberspace”. Its tribal science definition of cyberspace states that it is “a consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts… “. This is completely understandable under the tribal mathematical philosophy rules of economic survival administration, however indoctrinating children with the diseased ethos of the cybernetic Art of Warfare is no longer acceptable. As Plato predicted, they are being imprisoned into the cave of aggressive illusory mathematical reality to be groomed to be blindly dependent upon the ‘The Art of War’.

Norbert Wiener’s Progress in Physics is attributed to infinitesimally small amount of first-principle human survival holographic information leading to pragmatic development through the medium of scientific curiosity. Interwoven into the fabric of the Republic of the United States of America are small but very important amounts of Plato’s human survival intuitive compassionate cybernetic ethics concerning life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The American people have become victims of unethical and emotional cybernetic mathematical mind control warfare where aggressive ‘fake news’ belonging to the obsolete tribal lust for power is tearing to shreds its intuitive feelings of compassionate thinking.

In 1943 Salvador Dali exhibited a painting entitled Geopoliticus Child Watching the Birth of the New Man to tell the World that after World War II, Plato’s future ethical human holographic survival message would emerge as the birth of a new Republic within the United States of America. His eccentric flamboyant Science-Art philosophical reasoning was difficult to follow but its crucial implications for human survival have been scientifically summarized within this paper. His conviction that paintings could contain Plato’s human survival holographic images has evolved to where Wiener’s small amount of factual evidence to excite scientific curiosity is indisputably available for public viewing.

Existing tribal science economics will not fund the Science-Art venues needed for the American public to know that the human survival science has come into existence. Business people out there are attempting to rectify this situation. Eminent Science-Artists around the World have agreed to donate stereoscopic art collections to honour Dali’s birth of a new human survival Creative Physics Science-Art emerging from the United States of America.

Surviving With A Dwindling Profession In A Progressing World

The world is changing speedily. Scientists say that the surface of the earth at the equator moves at a speed of 460 meters per second, or roughly 1,000 miles per hour. This movement is what takes us to new days, new weeks, months and years. Imagine the baby you carried in your hands at the time of delivery growing past you in a few years later.

Life is all about growth. And growth is nothing but changes. Ever heard the saying, ‘change is constant’? Yea, change is inevitable. It occurs in almost everything in life.

Years back, there exist so many professions that brought people to fame. I recall when watch repairers call the shots in the society; when postmasters and mail runners live large in the society – a time when typists go home with fat salaries every month. These are in the past now. Reason? Change. This same change can in no time sweep away the work of a cashier, newspaper delivery, travel agencies, taxi drivers, etc. These can be replaced by self-checkout machines, electronic reading machines, travel websites, mobile apps, self-driving cars, artificial intelligence software, etc.

Apart from the above, there are reasons to fear that certain leading professions might suffer new entrants in the near future. Some of these professions were the envy of the people before. I can recall vividly those days when a whole community will gather to rejoice with families whose children/wards got admission to higher institutions. Going to universities those days was like going to heaven. Notably, these are no longer the case today.

In those days, companies, ministries and government agencies run over each other just to employ a better candidate for their organization. The competition was high, with better offers – good salaries, official vehicles, houses, etc. The reverse is the case today, as young graduates spend years at home looking for where to work, giving bribes to get employed, battling with age limit for employment, and all worth not. The table has truly turned!

The situation does not know whether you read the best courses or you just graduated with any course of study. After battling with the hustles and bustles that are inherent at school, you are greeted with a stark reality of NO JOB! Some may argue that it depends on the course that one read. To avoid arguing too much, let’s take a look at the following courses:

Engineering – It used to be a great honour and achievement for one to become a graduate of engineering. Engineers were highly revered. Upon graduation from the university, employment opportunities with better pay, always await an engineer. The story is different today. There are many unemployed engineers doing menial jobs just to survive. Ordinarily, engineers are meant to invent, design, analyse, build and test machines, complex systems, structures, gadgets and materials to fulfil functional objectives and requirements while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, regulation, safety and cost. Their work is the link between scientific discoveries and the commercial applications that meet societal and consumer needs. In Nigeria, engineers are losing their relevance. There are so many engineers as there are professionals. It is only a few engineering graduates that respect the mandatory four years work experience in his chosen field of study before certification.

Apart from that, engineering practice in Nigeria is faced with poor funding, inadequate equipment, students’ population explosion without commensurate facilities, lack of high-quality manpower in terms of trainers and teachers and poor attitude of employers. As a result, it is no longer fashionable for one to spend years in the university reading engineering that will only give him a paper qualification without the corresponding know-how or employment. People now turn away from engineering for other courses so long as they are graduates; a qualification that can earn them employment in whatever area of their choice.

I have once met an engineer working as a teller in a bank. Many of them are in the farms, others turned to teachers, both in public and primary schools. There are also those who picked up political appointments, etc. Only a few survive in this field as private practitioners.

Law – The joy of becoming a lawyer and what the profession represents can make parents sell their choice properties simply to have their children/wards graduate and practice law. The law profession has a vast opportunity like seeking to work in government offices and other alternatives like corporate law, patent, etc. With a law degree, professional choices in various fields of managerial, corporate and legal administrations are opened. Lawyers can work in circular newspapers or Radio/TV media, as company secretaries or teach law in schools. Many law graduates today are struggling to find their footing. Many have gone out of their ways to struggle with market men/women over what to buy and sell to earn a living. Some of them flood the court premises in the name of charge and bail jobs, a daily hustle apache that only a few of them survive from.

A set of diversified ones follow land/house agents to drag clients. This has made a lot of people to put a wide demarcation among them. Now we have LAWYERS and BARRISTERS, meaning the real charge and bail (in coats) and the ones with portfolios (dressed in suites).

All these emanated from poor law reporting, exploitation of young lawyers by law firms, unauthorized intrusion by non-practitioners, corruption, exploitation by clients, etc. Other challenges that face one in taking law as a career in Nigeria include admission racketeering, stress, long hours of work, soaring law school fees, competitive job market, non-patronage, changing legal paradigms, technology, legal process outsourcing. All these not only scare, but deny prospective lawyers the opportunity of venturing into the profession of their choice.

Medicine – Reading medicine in Nigeria is a herculean task. For many doctors, the pinnacle of their career is completing a specialist training programme or residency. This qualifies them as specialists. Getting into one of these programmes is not easy. There is the cost of the qualifying primary examinations. There is also a high failure rate in these examinations.

In all, doctors command respect, and are very important too. That makes them a very proud people. They can hardly agree with other practitioners. They find it hard to trust other persons who have knowledge of medicine thereby jeopardizing further medical research. As a result of the high regard people accord to doctors, the profession accommodated so many doctors that are not passionate in saving lives. Victims of circumstances and children of necessities flood the profession. Many doctors today were forced to study medicine against their wishes. Surviving in harsh economies becomes a factor in determining a person’s choice of course in life. This helped to place several round balls in square holes. Rich parents buy admissions for their children/wards to study courses they have no flair for, displacing the right people who have passion for the profession.

In other to find satisfaction and free their consciences, many of these doctors now delve into paid employment in government and other organizations where they do not practice medicine. The motive is just to earn salary and survive. Some doctors today are in politics, while others are succeeding as farmers, some take to music, movie acting and film making, while many are into fashion designing as professional tailors. The World Health Organisation (WHO) once announced that Nigeria has one of the highest doctor-to-population ratio in Africa. According to the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN), there are 72,000 nationally-registered Nigerian doctors, but only 35,000 are practicing in the country. This gives a deficit of over 260,000 doctors, going by the Nigerian population.

Nurses – Nurses are relational in nature. Relationships make life meaningful, and nurses do not need to worry about living without significant connections. They bond a lot with people – colleagues, patients, etc. One more serious thing about them is that they are always ready to respond to unexpected developments and patient emergencies. It is in their nature to show respect and compassion for their patients.

As the saying goes, ‘it takes a special person to be a nurse!’ Most of the times, patients prefer them to the doctors. This is not unconnected with their attitude of practicing on the frontlines of patient care. In any hospital settings, nurses are the ubiquitous personalities that easily turn into the eyes, ears and voice of healthcare.

One of the degrading factors affecting this profession is the reckless use of auxiliaries in the place of professionals. Auxiliary nurses earn less and can be humble enough to be ordered around anyhow. They can do any form of unprofessional job. What they need is to be taught how to handle syringes and inject patients. In any given hospital in Nigeria, both public and private, the ratio of auxiliary nurses to professionals remains 3:1. This unprofessional conduct of healthcare providers has killed the morale of prospects to pick up nursing as a profession.

In the search of better identity, many of these professionals have ventured into private patent medicine store businesses, maternity home services, clinics, etc, with so many others jetting out of the country in search of greener pastures.

Journalism – Doing the work of interviewing a wide range of people with diverse backgrounds is a huge perk in the life of a journalist. He is constantly exposed to new characters and needs to hear their stories, research and opinions. It is truly a great career for social spirits. Journalism is fast losing its cultural relevance and commodity of value. The core crisis is not about business models, quality, ethics, or trust, but NEWS. Journalism is nothing, without news, and news which is the heart of journalism is dying!

Globalization is killing news. The invention of global satellite televisions, affordable international air travel, the internet and the social media, all have made news a dying commodity. News once dominated, and made journalists look like demi-gods. Today, news has lost its monopoly on the sense of globalism it once generated and governed.

Years back, journalists go after newsmakers to extract information for public consumption. News was scarce, and the best and most versatile journalist carries the day. They were the custodians of anything new, as long as information dissemination is concerned. Today is different. Newsmakers prefer their social network handles, websites, etc to air their personal and official views. While journalism retains its pride of place in the lives of people, yet NEWS is dying. Every Dick and Harry has turned into a journalist – doctors, engineers, lawyers, students, farmers, etc. What you need is just a camera-phone, you are good to go. You have, though unprofessionally, become a photojournalist – taking pictures of events, reporting matters and having them broadcasted through a channel of your choice.

Just like other professionals, the work of a professional journalist is truly at risk, even though the profession is alive and active! No wonder you see these professionals today in the payroll of government officials writing their memoirs, some have turned to farming, others have become stooges and propaganda machines to certain powerful individuals, blackmailing and creating ripples in the air, etc. In the better part, some have engaged themselves into meaningful ventures like education, advocacy services and media consulting.

Community Support During Disasters – A Review of Disaster Pattern And Their Management

Nepal is one of the most disaster-prone countries of the world due to its complex geophysical condition and poor socio-economic situation. The country is facing various types of natural disasters like: flood, landslide, fire, earthquake, windstorm, hailstorm, lightning, glacier lake outburst flood, drought, epidemic, avalanche and so on. Further it is also exposed to various types of natural disasters due to rugged and steep topography, extreme weather events, and fragile geological conditions. Nepal’s vulnerability to disasters is compounded by rapid population growth, and development of haphazard and unplanned settlements.

The rural houses are built mostly with the wood and thatched roofs and are hence very weak and majority of them remain highly vulnerable to disasters such as fire hazards, earthquakes, landslides, and floods. The disaster occurs almost every year in one or the other part of the country.

Thousands of families every year become homeless due to natural disasters and most of these are poor families as they usually live in the disaster-prone areas due to socio economic conditions and the repressive caste system. It is obvious that they are more victimized as they are in un planned settlements in the hazard/risk affected area with minimal preventive measures (using poor construction materials), haphazard use of land for agriculture and other activities.

Large tracts of the rural areas are often inhabited by low income earning communities dependent upon agriculture, livestock, daily wage, forest products, small business, and service for their livelihoods. Once the disaster occurs, these extremely vulnerable people are mere dependents (for a long time) on external aid in absence of community safety nets and weak government infrastructure and support systems.

The types of natural and human induced hazards in Nepal, drawn from the active dataset (table 1) maintained by MoHA, covering a period of 45 years (1971 to 2015) tells us that a total of 22,373 disaster events have been recorded during this period. This works out to an average annual exposure to 500 events of disaster.
Nepal has been classified by the World Bank 2015 as one of the ‘hot- spot’ countries in the world with high risk for multi-hazard and disasters. Accordingly, “Nepal is ranked as 11th at most risk country in the world in terms of its vulnerability to earthquake, 30th with respect to floods and ranked 4th at risk of climate change induced disasters, making it the 20th most disaster-prone country among 198 countries in the world” (UNDP/BCPR, 2004). According to “National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management in Nepal 2009″ of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA), Nepal suffers a loss of about 1000 people’s life every year due to natural hazards, and a direct loss of an average of nearly 1208 million Nepali rupees per year. Every year millions of national and international expenditures are spent on disaster response activities, which absorbed a great deal of resources which would normally be allocated for well grounded national development efforts.

Nepal is one of the most disaster-prone countries of the world due to complex geophysical condition and poor socio-economic situation. The country is facing various types of natural disasters like: flood, landslide, fire, earthquake, windstorm, hailstorm, lightning, glacier lake outburst flood, drought, epidemic, avalanche and so on. Further it is also exposed to various types of natural disasters due to rugged and steep topography, extreme weather events, and fragile geological conditions.
The key research question is the analysis of the community’s resilience to the frequent natural and man-made disasters. This will include understanding of:

a) the ín-situ’ coping ways of the community within their families as a unit and
b) the preparedness measures that they have and how do they act when disaster occurs

the research will further investigate and analyse the patterns of the disasters in the study area, the impact of the past disasters on the community and the landscape.
These actions will help in framing the project narrative describing the disaster patterns, impacts, community coping mechanisms incl. preparedness and mitigation measures

Until the 1970s, disasters were understood as synonymous with natural hazards/events such as earthquakes, windstorms, floods and landslides. The magnitude of a disaster was considered to be a function of the magnitude of the hazard. For instance, earthquakes and windstorms are not avoidable; the emphasis of national governments and the international community, therefore, was mainly on a reactive approach of responding to the events (disasters) and in the best of cases, preparing for them, with an assumption that disasters are inevitable to be dealt only with response actions.

But, from the 1970s onwards, and with the start of million decades from 2000s, especially following the Hyogo Framework of Action (HFA), it has been established that disasters are intimately connected to the processes of human development. Natural hazards like windstorm, floods and earthquakes, however intense, inevitable or unpredictable, translate to disasters only to the extent that the society is unprepared to respond and unable to cope (which reflects the state of their vulnerability) and consequently, severely affected. In other words, there is nothing natural about disaster; it is the outcome of human inaction or lack of appropriate action in development (World Bank).

So, there is now a new paradigm shift that natural hazards themselves do not necessarily lead to disasters. Natural hazards are triggering disaster events, but that for a hazard to become a disaster, it has to affect vulnerable people. If people can be made less vulnerable, or non-vulnerable, then a hazard may still occur, but need not produce a disaster. It is now recognized that disaster risks (physical, social, and economic) unmanaged (or mismanaged) for a long time lead to occurrence of disasters. The possibility that a disaster might or might not occur will depend on whether those risks are adequately managed or not. Disasters are the results of ill-planned and un-planned development. Even the occurrence of recent climatic abnormality attributed to global climate change is traced to human activities as the emission of unmanaged and extremely high greenhouse gases (CO2, methane… ). Looking at disaster from this perspective, the management of the emergency (response) itself ceases to be a priority.

As such disasters result from the combination of hazards, conditions of vulnerabilities that are usually accumulate over time, and insufficient capacity or measures to reduce the potential damages. This is reflected in a simple empirical formula:

Disaster risk: Hazard x Vulnerability

Since little can be done to reduce the occurrence and intensity of most natural hazards, actions and activities should focus on reducing existing and future vulnerabilities to damage and loss. This clearly establishes that reducing vulnerabilities is the key to disaster risk reduction which should be acted upon as the integral component during the development phase of the program. It is not to be left upon for action by humanitarian actors in the aftermath of a disaster.

It is a concept applied in an integrated approach towards a disaster event in which the management cycle can be carried out through a sequence of activities/ phases, each being responsible or designed to address a specific type of intervention. Disaster risk management as an action to cope with disasters could refer to any purposive undertakings before, during and after disaster occurrence as a cycle with different phases, from preparedness through response, from prevention, mitigation and readiness through relief, recovery and rehabilitation. The disaster risk management is pivotal because of its ability to promote the holistic approach to disaster risk management and to demonstrate the relationship of disasters and development.

The relationship between disaster and development as a cycle reinforces the fact that disasters, however inevitable, could be managed through adequate planning and preparedness for response. Disaster risk management cycle on prevention, mitigation and preparedness comprises the development portion, while relief and recovery comprise the humanitarian assistance portion with preparedness linking both types of efforts. Thus, the disaster risk management cycle consists of four phases: Prevention/Mitigation and Preparedness in the pre-disaster stage, and Response as well as Rehabilitation/Reconstruction in post-disaster stage. The two stages to disaster risk management: pre-disaster and post-disaster phases are illustrated in DRM Cycle.

Pre-Disaster Phase: It covers Risk Identification, Prevention, Mitigation, Adaptation and Preparedness measures undertaken to reduce the disaster risks associated with potential hazards to prevent or minimize the adverse impact on human and property losses caused by a disaster. The intention of preparedness is to prevent or minimize the losses and damage in case of a disaster. Preparedness denotes the post disaster phase of disaster risk management cycle

Post Disaster Phase: It covers Response, Recovery and Reconstruction actions taken in response to a disaster with a purpose to achieve early recovery and rehabilitation of affected people and communities. The Response includes the search and rescue; fulfilling basic humanitarian needs of the affected communities and other humanitarian actions. Recovery starts after the immediate threat to human life has subsided. The immediate goal of the recovery is to bring the affected area back to some degree of normalcy and to a situation which should be better than before the disaster, following “Build Back Better” principle of humanitarian assistance.
