This podcast discussion was inspired by a question we received from Frank, one of our readers. Frank asked us an interesting, complex and difficult question. To summarize: isn’t their much to be gained from the advent of agriculture and thus it’s precipitating technologies? And if so, is our existence improved through these struggle-reducing technologies allowing for increased leisure time and creative exploration?
The answer, on the surface at least, seems apparent; without a doubt, yes! But as you delve deeper into the topic, you may question your neolithic pre-conceptions as we do. Are we, in fact happier, healthier and more enlightened beings in our post-modern state? Or is a hunter-gatherer existence also capable of great (natural) technology, creativity and happiness?
