The question I will get round to is – `Why is life shit~?`
Note: The answer has different `Levels` to be answered on.
We can use the three Levels we normally use.
Reminder of Levels –
1. Telly tubbies.
2. Self-help books.
3. I forget what I said this Level is.
The angle that comes to me this morning, is a pretty-solid Level 2. type question (I think).
That is – Was life shit for `hunter gatherers`?
I ask this, because Mrs. Mystic is doing her England week with relatives.
Where I am sure she is enjoying (actually not, but I’ll pretend) seeing her old friends and relatives … life there, is not like life here.
We have taken on enough land, that there is always something to do (and things that could not be done).
When we get up in the morning, there is a long list of things that can (should be maybe) done.
Things can be done … and satisfaction taken from doing them.
Now … in England … she is taken for a drive to a garden center … where the thing is to fill-in-time, rather than be doing anything constructive.
It is possible that a `modern brian` can be satisfied (un-shitted) by distractions, whereas older brians are programmed to be un-shitted by actually doing something constructive.
I have put this in by mistake.
I had it in the folder because I did my taxes yesterday.
I used this chart to estimate what the conversion-rate was Euro/Pounds. There is an official rate, but it is hard to find … and three seperate governnment tax people have told me to `just guess it`.
The Afganis are kinda doing farming … but, the leaders are doing a version of hunter gathering.
You can see why it took `the farmers` (with all their advantages) so long to `do away with` the hunter gatherers.
This is today (after quite a lot of trouble taken to make this map go green)
Italy and Spain are still big in the Target2. hole.
It is one of those things that don’t matter … as long as it doesn’t matter.
Note that this chart is now denominated in trillions (as so much is nowadays).
