In terms of material goods, humans need very little to survive.
So much so that we made a list of truly essential things a human needs.
2. Simple, nourishing food. Mainly, vegetables, fruit, grains (rice, bread, pasta) and protein (beans, legumes).
3. Toilet Paper
5. Basic clothes
6. Shelter, with utilities such as running water, electricity, gas
THATS IT! Who said life had to complicated?
Whilst these items need to be purchased, with the exception of water, they are at a minimal cost.
Compared to the gluttony and decadence promoted in the mainstream media to buy more, more, more and have things bigger, better and grander, including what’s on our own body, it’s no wonder we leave in an inflated world, where inflated prices and low self esteem equal economic stability.
We’re here to put things in perspective. Spend as little as you can on essentials, have the right attitude and the right perception, and you will realise how pointless living above your material means truly is.
What do you think humans need to survive? Anything that wasn’t included on the list? Have humans gone over the top with their material accumulation?
