There is at that time great destruction of animals in general,
and only a small part of the human race survives
Politicus, by Plato
When a world cycle is destroyed by wind ..
First it raises a fine dust, then coarse dust, then fine sand, then coarse sand, then grit,
stones, up to boulders as large as trees.
Visuddhi-Magga, a Buddhist text
In the fields of archaeology, geology, and astronomy the last few years have brought
a vast array of facts to corroborate the claims ...
that there were physical upheavals of a global character in historical times;
that these catastrophes were caused by extraterrestrial agents;
and that the nature of these agents may be identified.

Sunlight may be scarce, so crops grown under artificial light will be most abundant.
Rivers and seas may be poisoned, what with the volcanic dust falling everywhere,
so fish tanks fed from algae grown in human sewage will likewise be most abundant.

Good cooks, skilled at making the plain fare tasty, will be much appreciated.
A natural way of life reminiscent of life during the last century.
It is no small matter to have music, poetry, and art.
This fills the heart of the musician, poet, or artist as much as the recipient.
There will be much need for such distraction, as the days will be dim, and the nights dark and long.
But do plan to educate your young. Save educational material.
There is no reason that technology should stop, just because the infrastructure of human society has been torn asunder.
Technology is in the minds and documentation that all humans can access, and rescue.
