here, no matter what the era.”

Watts is also one of my personal heros! awesome. In school, we’re taught rather a chauvenistic way of looking at the world – that modern society is the pinnacle of human intellience. But intelligence is intelligence — if you’re human, you’ve got a big brain. A 6 year old can remember the names of 300 cartoon characters/video game characters and all of their traits and personalities – that sam…e 6 year old kid 10,000 years ago might know the names of 300 plants and animals and bugs and gods and demons. Same intelligence, different environment. People weren’t stupider – the technologies were different, the worldviews / philosophies were different but the intelligence was all 100% there, no matter what the era. “
