I'm reminded of the text, I think from Hitch-hikers, where Arthur Dent (probably) is saying what a great mistake it was for us to have left the trees, and even to have left the oceans.

I sympathise with this. We've created this incredibly complex and sometimes horrible society, and what have we really achieved? Not much, perhaps nothing. Today I rather fancy sitting in a cave with my fellow cavemen (and cavewomen) having been out collecting food for the day. Rather than sitting alone in my bedroom watching TV.

I had a conversation with a friend of mine about the exact thing earlier today (how everything has become too big, and how we use too much time where we can be cruel and worry about useless things). She has a very deterministic view on society, I guess we'll be joining you in the cave soon.

I'll save a couple of spaces ;-)

Actually the comment was made by "The Book." But I have to agree, but I think the oceans are a better idea that a cave, then, at least, you don't have to worry about fire.
It becomes a simple binary choice, either eat or be eaten, its kind of pure after that.

Aaaaah, thanks for the correction. I can almost hear The Book saying it now :-)
