It sounds like from the Russian enlistment requirements that their life span started shortening in the times listed. Over the years the amount of time required for enlisted service began to reflect that and less service time was required. Or, what if the military was comprised of mostly giants and as they began to die off (for whatever reason) humans replaced them and just weren't as long-lived as the previous service members. The enlistment time requirements could be reflecting WHO was serving rather than how long the enlistees were living.
I interpreted it the opposite way. Because people were living longer, they had more of a population to serve in the military, so they no longer had to have people serve for life. The years required went down, as the population went up (due to longevity), because they would still be able to maintain their military with people serving shorter lengths. Kind of like how we don't have any draft today, because the population is high enough that there are plenty of people willing to serve in the military.

The storyline in the video is mind boggling. I think it sums up a lot of things we were talkibg about on this forum.

Had no idea Clemens had this book.

Searching the historical record of the Valley of Mexico for evidence of famines and epidemics, speaker Rodolfo Acuña-Soto of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, and coauthors identified several drought-associated epidemics of hemorrhagic fevers that had swept the region, causing massive mortality. Among these, the authors describe four especially destructive epidemics that appear to have killed between 20-90 percent of the entire population, leading to societal collapse: the epidemics of 1003–1011, 1545–1548, 1576–1578, and 1736–1737.

A full 90% of the Toltec population died in 1006 from some pestilential lethal "smell" emanating from a blond, white child. (Sounds legit)

The epidemics of 1545 and 1576–1580 were particularly lethal. Together, they were responsible for approximately 12 million to 15 million deaths in the highlands of Mexico. During the epidemics, a large proportion of the population was incapacitated. Some witnesses described whole families dying of starvation rather than disease, even when not severely ill.

Cocoliztli, smallpox, and measles are the diseases that contributed the most to the population collapse of the sixteenth century (Acuña-Soto et al., 2000, 2004; Flores, 1888; Flores and Malvido, 1985; Marr and Kiracofe, 2000).

Founded only 675 years ago, Mexico City is located in the same region where the once magnificent cities Teotihuacán and Tula collapsed 1,255 and 1,000 years ago, respectively. Similar catastrophic events occurred during the sixteenth century, when the Valley of Mexico, as well as the whole country, lost 80-90 percent of its inhabitants due to highly lethal epidemics. During the seventeenth to twentieth centuries, the population again went through several calamitous periods of high mortality, droughts, famines, and epidemics (Gerhard, 1986; León, 1982; Ocaranza, 1933; Therrell et al., 2004; Yu-ping and Heligman, 1994).

Over the last 1,500 years, a total of 119 major epidemics and 38 famines were identified (see Table 3-1). Drought was the main cause of 28 (73 percent) famines. The epidemics of smallpox of 1520–1521 and 1538–1539 induced famine by generalized social disruption. Other historic famines were caused by the particularly disastrous combination of summer frost followed by drought. Such was the case of the legendary famine of 1542–1545, when early frost killed all the corn plants in 1542 and was followed by prolonged drought during 1543–1544 when no rain was registered for 20 months. With no new harvest, reserves ran out, creating a very stressful situation that paved the way to a major famine (Therrell et al., 2004). This series of events recurred in 1784–1786, the infamous “year of the hunger” (Cook and Sherburne, 1985). After the Conquest in 1520, famines were recorded with decreasing frequency.

15,896 deaths, 6,157 injured, 2,537 people missing. 2011 Japanese earthquake/tsunami
The Great Kanto Earthquake, the worst in Japanese history, hit the Kanto plain around Tokyo in 1923 and resulted in the deaths of over 100,000 people.

Two separate 8.6 events merged into the largest earthquake the modern world had ever seen. A fault line, more than 600 miles long ruptured and left devastation, destruction and a giant tsunami in its wake. When it was over, the busy harbor town of Valdivia was flattened and entire coastal villages had disappeared. Further inland, giant landslides had buried villages and towns. The tsunami, caused by this monster quake, wreaked havoc all across the Pacific, from Hawaii to Japan and Alaska. 1960 9.5 Chile quake, largest in recorded history.

These and numerous other such statistics show that Mother Nature acts like a temperamental beast trying to shake off its fleas (us). Nature is quite capable of killing us off in cataclysmic numbers and has done so on a regular basis throughout history.

This pestilential lethal "smell" emanating from a blond, white child is the creation of Sulfur dioxide from the magneto-electrical field of a comet("white" child). Sulfur dioxide is extremely injurious to the lungs and can kill by causing edema(fluid) in the lungs.
  • Inhalation: VERY TOXIC, can cause death. Can cause severe irritation of the nose and throat. At high concentrations: can cause life-threatening accumulation of fluid in the lungs (pulmonary edema). Symptoms may include coughing, shortness of breath, difficult breathing and tightness in the chest. A single exposure to a high concentration can cause a long-lasting condition like asthma. If this occurs, many things like other chemicals or cold temperatures can easily irritate the airways. Symptoms may include shortness of breath, tightness in the chest and wheezing. {Reactive Airways Dysfunction Syndrome (RADS)}.

  • Understanding Sulfur Dioxide Health Advisory Levels
    • Good (0–0.1 ppm)
      No cautionary statement.
    • Moderate (0.1–0.2 ppm)
      Unusually sensitive people should consider reducing prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors.
    • Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (0.2–1.0 ppm)
      Active children and adults, and people with lung disease, such as asthma, should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors.
    • Unhealthy (1.0–3.0 ppm)
      Active children and adults, and people with lung disease, such as asthma, should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors. Everyone else, especially children, should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors.
    • Very Unhealthy (3.0–5.0 ppm)
      Active children and adults, and people with lung disease, such as asthma, should avoid all outdoor exertion. Everyone else, especially children, should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors.
    • Hazardous ( > 5.0 ppm)
      Triggers health warnings of emergency conditions. Entire population is more likely to be affected. Avoid outdoor activities & remain indoors. Leave the area if directed by Civil Defense.
  • The SO2 and weather data used in this program are collected by the National Park Service at the Jaggar Museum and Kilauea Visitor Center monitoring sites. The SO2 concentrations measured at the monitoring sites are reviewed every 15 minutes and one of six advisory levels of health concern are assigned for that 15-minute period for each site.
    Here we have a natural killer that would wipe out huge populations at 5 particles per million!

That sounds like a perfectly reasonable, scientific explanation. Problem is, after that event it became a law that any blonde child that was at least 5 years old should be killed. I wondered why you had to wait til they were 5 if they were considered such a threat but hair color changes quite a bit when you're very young so maybe that had something to do with it.

It's called sympathetic magic-kill the child whose likeness of the hair to a comet to ward off evil.

Was the comet around for 5 years before the EVENT? Who knows.

There's a project called "Shrinking Cities":

shrinkingcities : Welcome

There are shrinking cities, whether open and visible, or secret and hidden ones, all over the world, not only in the industrially-developed countries of Europe and America, but also (notwithstanding the growth of "megapolises" and "global cities") in Asia and Africa - and even in small countries such as Switzerland.
By today, the Ruhr Valley in Germany has lost about 10 percent of its inhabitants, despite immigration. Some cities have even lost 30 percent. It is assumed that the population will continue to decline for the next 20 years – in some communities by as much as another 15 percent.
While the great agglomerations around Tokyo and Osaka increasingly attract people and activities, most of the other cities in Japan are shrinking, because the total population of the country has been dwindling for several years. The port city Hakodate, situated on the southern coast of Japan’s northern island, Hokkaido, is a typical example.
I can't really see any signs for exponential growth and overpopulation anywhere. If I didn't know about official populaton number and growth I would think that we are actually experiencing the exact opposite.

The countries with the alleged population explosions are the least transparent and trustworthy when it comes to population statistics.

In April, the central government designated Hakodate as a depopulated area, the first city with a population of around 300,000 or more in Japan to earn that distinction. The population of Hakodate has dropped to 270,000 from 340,000 in 1985, qualifying it for state support offered to localities whose populations drop by around 20% or more.
Japan's demographic collapse points to grim future

The project's prognosis is this:

In the 21st century, the historically unique epoch of growth that began with industrialization 200 years ago will come to an end. In particular, climate change, dwindling fossil sources of energy, demographic aging, and rationalization in the service industry will lead to new forms of urban shrinking and a marked increase in the number of shrinking cities.
Usually the stories is that the countryside is shrinking, but it seems even big cities are shrinking everywhere.

I do find it strange when you look at the population stats of the rust belt cities of America (Buffalo, Toronto, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Chicago). They are all going through a massive rebirth. It's all cranes in the sky, apartments and retail space for everyone. We're converting old meat warehouses and 6-story turn-of-the-20th-century liveries (how did they get them horses up to the 6th floor?) into Google office spaces. Every day there is a newly proposed 5-story retail/office space/loft on the ol' strip.

Yet each one is losing population, year after year. Even Vancouver is starting to trail off.

This article could be posted in a number of threads here, I chose this one...

Old coal mines can be 'perfect' underground food farms
Abandoned coal mines across the UK could be brought back to life as huge underground farms, according to academics.

Mine shafts and tunnels are seen as "the perfect environment" for growing food such as vegetables and herbs.

The initiative is seen as a way of providing large-scale crop production for a growing global population.

Has anyone considered something like an A.I. built long ago could be responsible for the "resets" etc? Totally and absolutely hypothetical of coarse.
Yes, and this program has been shuttered. You see Tron? Kid finds has Dad's old game? Wargames? Kid finds Professor's old game? Emmett Otter's JugBand Christmas? Kid puts a hole in the washtub?

Population data doesn't make sense. The assumption many make is that a) in the past the population has similar cosmology than now. Wrong. b) That they were less developed and died young age. Wrong.

It seems to me we are living a pre cataclysmic era with inherited trauma based reality that will take generations to heal, ie return to higher planes of reality.

We should not mix the living conditions of the past purely on post apocalypse era where likely individuals and tribes were at constant war for survival (to put it simply).

I also think that in the past they (or some of them) selected and made population with performance in mind. This humanistic thinking where everybody is the same and every life worth prolonging indefinitely was considered as an impossible task. (Realistic thinking, logos). Therefore they didnt waste all resources on loosing battle but chipped the energy to projects with continuity. This could have resulted in so extraordinary development in all fronts that we surely cant even imagine how intelligent selection could look like after 10, 100 generations? They may not have had democracy which is the rule of the mediocre (at best) but ruling based on wisdom, performance vs. consensus of the mob?

I propose here that the pre flood civilisation was so fantastic, that we cant even imagine it, thus these huge differences in all projections. Maybe life as we know it was based on totally different kind of set of reality than now is accepted by the modern darwinians.

At the same token I also propose that we are the descendants of whatever that ancient civilisation created in their labs for their perfect new world, but when the dome broke, we became savages in the garden.

I agree. Whenever pre-flood was, maybe 1000 years ago, maybe 2000 or 3000, but if that past would be made into a movie, we would probably be blown away. That's my conclusion after realizing that even life 500 years ago was so entirely different based on all what we have figured out. Just like things devolve into progressively worse states, a healthy society would evolve into a better state with each new generation, that is until the spiral gets reversed for some reason.
