Yes, I will survive Google's shrinking serps. Even if I get no traffic from Google the internet is not owned by Google and there will always be ways of bringing my content to interested people.
Google, however, has already stated that they are no longer just a search engine. They want to be a knowledge engine despite relying almost exclusively on other people's content. As they move more of that content onto their own domains webmasters will see less and less traffic, it's not just the ads that are denying you visits.
