The Dawn of Everything
Fascinating big picture history regarding the rise of civilization beyond Dunbar's Number, and it's proposed current reversion via social media taking us back to clans. https://erikhoel.substack.com/p/the-gossip-trap
- Eleanor Roosevelt -Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.
- So then what is civilization? It is a superstructure that levels leveling mechanisms, freeing us from the gossip trap.
- As William Faulkner said, “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.”
- MJ comment -The solution for this morasse is the art of possibility. Yes, we have a past. Yes, we have a choice of where to go in the future. Worries about the future are what keeps us stuck in a bucket of crabs. But people love being down in the bucket. They would also love to climb out. Ultimately It's our choice.
