THE FALL: a lot of mainstream history would have us believe that only the last 2000 years mattered - and that despite the odd glitch it's been a journey from primitive to progress. But pretty much we are all operating in a 21st century world with a 'caveman' brain/body. How illuminating, for example, to think that pre agricultural people worked less than half the hours we do, were healthier than their agrarian successors and lived almost entirely peaceably and in harmony. a much nicer idea than the idea that life is `nasty hard and brutish' (Hobbes). not least I like this as it sets a precedent for the future. if our ancestors were able to live a more sane life than us by valuing only what was valuable and finding themselves a lot less afflicted by the ego. they've proved there is technically nothing innate in each of us to prevent the going forward into a new Eden. I recommend any readers interested in transcending (overcoming / decommissioning) the all too common twin maladies of time-bound perception and ego identification should have a look at: How to Live in the Here and Now - i've put in a link for you at the top!
