What were we designed for?
To work 40 hours per week? To live in giant houses on credit? To eat scientifically manufactured food? To drink corn syrup? To engage on social media? To shop and consume? To parade around in metal boxes with combustible engines?
In this culture, in this time, in this place, these activities are merely habits embedded in us by our cultural norms and, thus, embedded in our expectations. It’s not right or wrong- it just is.
The true nature of humanity is the consummate collection of our cultural and independent realities. The true nature of ourselves is a combination of the genetic print of thousands of your familial lineage through time and our daily environment and mental acuity.
Because we live in the present time and space, we are optimized for our present conditions.
