“I am still learning.” -Michaelangelo at age 87

Michelangelo (1475 – 1564) is one of the greatest artists of all time and one of the towering figures who helped shape Western art in the High Renaissance period.

Before he turned thirty, he had already accomplished some of his greatest works such as the sculptures “Pieta” and “David”. He finished his iconic paintings at the Sistine Chapel at the age of 37 and he worked as an architect of St. Peters Basilica at 74 until the time of his death at the age of 89.

The assumption that old people can’t learn new stuff has already been debunked by science. Although cognitive decline is real, the brain adapts to it by using its other parts to perform visual thinking tasks, according to a study by Dr. Randy McIntosh at the University of Toronto. Although the brain activity of the old people in their experiment (60 – 79) performed much weaker in the common regions for tasks, other regions in their brains were activated. In other words, the white matter serves as a backup when the gray matter no longer works as it used to because of age.

The viability of an 87-year-old Michelangelo saying “I am still learning” is therefore backed by the recent studies in neuroscience. The brain is resilient enough to cope from aging. The only hindrance could be the brain itself when it stops believing in learning. To quote American industrialist Henry Ford: “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty of eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.”

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
