In hard and weird times, everything is fluid.
I bet you have heard many times that expression, but what does it actually mean?
In essence, it means if you do not pay attention to that "fluidity" or let s say if you do not keep paying attention to the timing of everything you are gonna make mistakes, and even more, you may end up dead.
"Rules" must also be fluid.
It is especially important in light of the "teachings" that you can find in mainstream survival where the majority of "masters of survival" give you rules on how to survive, but fail to recognize that rules are there for bending, for changing, even for trashing. It's all connected with the timing of events, particular or current situation. (Here are some pieces of advice I find particularly bad in the survival world.)
It is fluid.
So, again, if someone is giving you rules (including me), never forget that you need to take it as a starting, point, or let's say blueprint, or foundation only, that you should refer to when times get tough. BUT you must always be keeping in mind that the situation CHANGES, so the rules might change too.
I know the prepper world today is consistent with 99 percent of "lists what to do in order to survive" and I also know people like to have clear pointers and clear instructions on what to do and how to prepare, which is OK.
