OK, as for specifically linking Neolithic to Human Thinking Pathology (my paraphrase), I continue to believe : I have more options make no apology for a fulfilling life, in today's post-Stone Age (Paleo and Neo) alike, than I would have "back then." A "modern/postmodern" life (living today) gives us appreciating having access to the possibility modern/postmodern modes of recovering the best thinking and multiplicity of "premodern" waysmedia (electronic and print). Can/do I get carried away sometimes? Sure. The problem isn't my laptop, without being limited to my iPhone, my TV or radio, my various magazines, the "nothing more than" Internet. The problem, when such exists, is in how I make use of premodernthese sources. I am invariably benefit from periods of not being tuned in. And from periods of turning off thought, meditation practice in particular. Likewise I'm glad for ER medicine (nice touch of modernity, that), and I am also glad to be able to include because ER medicine doesn't in any way conflict with my including Paleo/Primal principles and practices in my life. I find With their impressive health, would our hunter-gatherer ancestors have found value in some quarters of ER medicine? Of course. Fewer would have died from accidents and infections. Huge "duh" factor here, it seems to me.
So put me down decidedly in the Paleo movementcamp that favors an integral approach — to nutrition, to fitness, to cognition, and to living in general. As a certain strain of idealizing contemporary, we've all got access to the features of hunter-gatherer waysmodernism and premodernism that we may find valuable. However, per seour pre-modern ancestors did not have access to societal forms subsequent to their existence. ("If When I hear the statement,"If our ancestors didn't do X, neither should we," being a simplistic expression of " retro-romanticism," I roll my eyes. Retro-romantic reductionism, in the smart phrase of philosopher Ken Wilber, in from his classic essay, "The Pre-Trans Fallacy," no doubt easily available via Google.)
