According to Peter Attia, "health-related guidelines are important. And simple framework solutions are particularly enticing. But sometimes, directives are based on unsubstantiated or even incorrect information. Here, as a primary example, we can discuss the well-known guideline that says to drink at least 8 glasses of water that are 8 fluid ounces (oz) a day, or 64 oz per day. This is often referred to as the “8 x 8” rule and it is popularly used as a benchmark for keeping hydrated. Let me give you the punchline up front: there is no science supporting the “8 x 8” concept." Wow.

Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink. Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink.


Water can be sourced from the surface, from the air and from below the ground, Water can be sourced from living things. Currently, I am living in an unsustainable way. I simply to to the store and buy 20L of "drinking water" and fill my two 11-liter bottles of water. However the water quality is dubious and is definitely not pure HOH. How do I know? The bottler is Danone and the bottles are plastic. non-pliable plastic. The water contained is not pure.I don't know where the water is from or how it has been "treated".


By surface water I mean water--as a solid or liquid--that touches the surface of the earth.

****Surface ice

****Surface snow

****Surface lakes and rivers.

****Surface rivers

****Surface springs

****Surface seas

This is an overall diagram with minimal propaganda.


**Below Ground

This video was interesting. It showed how to access ground water and filter it. The water was evident at about 5 feet deep. With 2 people, a string, a digging stick, a plastic bowl, and "bricks" a circular hole of about 8 feet was dug and reinforced with bricks and mud. This is usueful when you know that there is water a few feet  below the surface. This can be known based on the vegetation in the area and your knowledge of the characteristic root depth of said vegetation. This can als be known perhaps by water witching with adivining stick.


****Water Tables

Can people or other animals which are composed of mostly water be a legitimate source of water? Can urine be a legitimate source of water? Can plants and their fruit be a legitimate source of water? Can a laboratory or a factory be a legitimate source of water?


Water can be filtered to varying degrees through various means with various materials. It is best to filter water through a series of filtration steps, each subsequent step capable of filtering out smaller and smaller particles.

This works to get rid of visible cloudiness caused by suspended particles. You will need a 2L plastic bottle, some moss, some charcoal and some sand. This is a real life homemade filter. With layers of moss, charcoal and sand. Each layer should be about an inch think. Pack down each level your top layer should be coarse sand or fine gravel. You will rely on passive movement through the filter. And this first filtration will be only one of a series. Washing the filter component prior to layering and compacting will give you clearer water faster. Using the same filter multiple time should improve the filtering capability. Make your own water filter and never buy drinking water again.

This video illustrates how to make a water filtration system with bricks and cement. This one is similar but may lack some iportant details.


Bringing water to a rolling boil to kill present  bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and other microbes. . Using 2% iodine. Using chlorine bleach at 6% &/or 8% sodium hopochlorite. None of these methods protect against cryptoscleridium (sp?)  The information comes from the CDC website, Center for Disease Control, in the USA. Dubious source. We know what their end game is. Depopulation.

With sunlight?

Does chlorine bleach really expire? Treat 1 quart as if it were equivalent to 1 liter and vice versa. Two drops of bleach to 1 quart of water.


This means taking things OUT.

For me, distillation seems the obvious choice. Here's the distiller an acquaintance bought: .
