Talk: The Myth of the Stupid Savage

  • Self-consciousness in humans is fleeting and occurs for a limited window of time

  • It happens most when in dialogue with someone or self.

    • A possible clue to the evolution of consciousness
  • Human societies used to have mutable social structures sometimes changing across seasons

    • Ex: Authoritative during summer, egalitarian during winter
  • The origins of inequality is pre-historic

    • Ex: burials of people with great wealth buried with them even during > 30000 years ago
    • These people were often physically deformed in some way (Ex: Dwarves, Giants etc)
