This week, we delve deep into an interesting topic. We challenge you to expand your definition of what you consider to be an extreme environment.
Normally, we consider extreme environments to be those that test the very limits of human survivability. We take this perspective, twist it around, and pose a new question. What if the environment that we normally consider most safe, docile and mundane, is actually the most extreme environment?
We are talking about our modern, updated, sterile, climate controlled homes. Our artificially lit, heated, cooled, cleaned manufactured and furnished home environment.
We encourage you to join us, in this meandering conversation with an open mind and a curious spirit.
Join the conversation on Twitter on Facebook or carrier pigeon. I think Frank would dig that.
