Not sure it’s accurate for these YouTubers to call themselves “filmmakers”. This is one of the latest words that once had gravitas, and is now casually abused and misused. Maybe let’s calm down and start using “content provider”. Before the future becomes unpoetic at best. Unless you shot on, developed, and cut together your work on celluloid. In that case disregard this pedantic expulsion.

A very well made and informative video except for one glaring error of fact and another of perspective. Anthropological evidence indicates most hunter-gatherers didn't spend most of their day looking for food. In fact they probably spent far more of their time devoted to art, ritual and play than most people in industrial societies do today: please check out the work of anthropologist Marshall Sahlins on this topic. The larger issue here is that spruiking the wonders of technology in advancing modernity is all very well provided it is critically informed by the social sciences and humanities.

"Since copper sulfate is easily absorbed through the skin, those that dispense it must be extremely cautious to avoid even minimal skin contact with it. If contact occurs, it can cause itching and permanent yellow discoloration of the skin." Uhm, maybe use disposable gloves next time you pour a handful of blue crystals?

Your comment about hunter gatherers not having free time or having art and culture is false. You should learn Native American history. They chose not to develop and focused more on developing will power and spirit. Every man’s tools were their own and it was part of their culture not to look at another man’s tools and for each man to come up with them themselves. It may have stopped them from developing beyond bows because without men looking at each others tools there’s no competition for better tools. Technology is only good when you’re the only one with it anyway. Otherwise it’s used keep up with the jones’, escalate wars, and industrialize economies built to supply them.

What happens to the copper sulfate as the water is evaporated? Does it remain in with the potassium to be harvested? Or does it evaporate out with the water? If it remains, how is it extracted after?

Vor 11 Tage

I was just thinking that! Now, I'm sure you can separate it handy enough, but copper sulfate is mean stuff! It's used in plating metal in preparation for nickel/chrome plating, like bumpers and if you get it near marine life or plants, it is very unkind, so how crazy is that! The fertility of potassium is so great, you need to "poison" it, to keep the algae from blooming hardcore. You definitely wouldn't want the copper sulfate to pass on to other stages like fertilizers/food! It is a large scale operation, so I'm sure the process is refined, but it would be neat to see how it's removed.
