267: Damaged But Dominant


KMO welcomes Tony Wright to the program to talk about the development and degeneration of human cognitive abilities over the course of our evolutionary history. Could it be that our forest-dwelling, fruit-eating ancestors enjoyed not only enhanced cognitive abilities, but also a more satisfying and easy sense of self? If so, how might we move ourselves back in the direction sanity and balance? Tony is working with documentary film-maker David Malone to bring these ideas to a wider audience via a TV series they’re tentatively calling Molecules of Madness. Later, Charles Eisenstein stops in to talk about trusting ourselves to find a workable relationship with food.

Music by Critter Jones.

Links to come.

Daddy issues
Blah. I'd like to hear from some brilliant scientific materialist who doesn't pay lip service to the feminazi misandrist line of "logic" of "testosterone poisoning" and the moral and universal superiority of females.

That is i'd like to hear something original... not just another rehash everyone daddy issues dressed up in scientific rhetoric.

Frankly allot of the things the guy said, I can't relate to at all.

IMHO scientists and staticians, are probably the most out of touch with reality than anyone...

Re: Daddy issues
I share your concerns on this issue, though I don't see Tony's point as being so clearly a case of a scientific materialist paying lip service to political correctness as you seem to.

Food Forests
This episode was very near and dear to me. Being a permaculture designer who consults in the creation of food forests, I can definitely see the co-evolution of the continuousness of some of my clients, and the increasing biomass/diversity of their food farm eco-systems. When the landscape that they spend their days in is rich in life they seem to be less worried about the impending material co-laps that ties up so much of the psycic energy in the humans that don't have the luxery of dwelling in such environs.

I seem to remember you saying KMO that after moving to the Ecovillage training center you were much less excited about the co-laps of society as you once were...hmm this is brain food for thought.

I highly recommend the movie Establishing and Maintaining your Edible Food Forest with Geoff Lawton. here is a trailer for the film...
