A man who has been preparing for the end of the world for 15 years has predicted how people will have to live after doomsday.
While some of the outlooks for our survival as a species are pretty gloomy and suggest we could imminently all be wiped out, there are some people preparing for the end of days.
Survivalists often live away from society and believe their lifestyle will keep them safe when things inevitably go sideways.
Among this group is Aaron Fletcher, who decided to go homeless, or rather houseless, in his 20s and has been getting ready for doomsday for a decade and a half now.
He spoke to Insider as they spent a few days with him away from it all to get an idea how how he lives, cooking food on a camping oven he bought on the internet and occasionally hunting wild animals for a bit of an addition to his diet.
Aaron doesn't live entirely away from everyone else as he does get food from local farmers and has gained a following from his YouTube channel.
"Every 400 years society has collapsed and we're overdue," he told Insider, who also asked if he thought he was crazy.
He said: "It's no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society. I'm obviously the least adjusted so I would say that I'm the least crazy of anyone that I know."
After a wildfire devastated his local area and many local residents ended up living in RVs he believes his way of life could be a good thing to copy for other people struggling to pick up the pieces.
"Those people that are in RVs could be happier, healthier and have more purpose if they had a connection with the local small farmers that need their help right now," he said.
Aaron explained that he left his parents' home 15 years ago because he was predicting 'c**p was gonna hit the fan' in a matter of weeks.
While he might live more off the grid than most his lifestyle isn't solitary and he's worked with local farmers in exchange for produce and a place to stay.
So if the world ends the answer might not be to treat it as though it's every man for themselves and instead for people to work together, figure out what they can make which is useful and help each other out with it.
That doesn't sound so bad, provided you make it past doomsday of course.
