The transition from hunting to farming was very, very slow.
At least 5,000 years.
The last ice age ended about 11,000 years ago.
The very first pre-Sumerian cities didn’t pop up until about 5,000 BC or so.
What took them so long?
The lifestyle of a hunter-gather is much, much different than that of a farmer.
But critically, the one thing that changed was how we thought about time.
If you’re a hunter, and you are hungry, you get out and kill something.
But if you’re a farmer, and you’re hungry, you can only eat something based on what you did six months ago.
Now Vs. Later
How we thought about time changed.
In a fundamental way.
If you do a bunch of work planting a bunch of crops, that’s not fun.
But if you can imagine far enough in the future, you’ll get a NOW feeling when you imagine that future.
You compare the hard work you’re doing now WITH that imagination of the future.
Both those feelings, the hard work you’re doing, right now, and that imagination of what you’ll get in six months, are both felt NOW.
The tipping point from hunting to farming when that now feeling when imagining the results of your now work was STRONGER than the “discomfort” of the now work.
Consider this to be one of the MOST IMPORTANT ideas for us humans.
How we consider our actions that we do now.
We do the action, now, and it gives us a negative feeling.
But when we imagine the result of our actions, that we are doing now, and that gives us a good feeling.
If that good feeling, about the imagined future, is STRONGER than the now discomfort of the action, we’ll do the action.
This is the secret of delayed gratification.
The feeling you get from a FUTURE GOOD OUTCOME is stronger than the now feeling of doing whatever action or work.
This tipping point happened only a few times, from a society-wide standpoint, in human history.
When hunters turned into farmers.
Then a couple thousand years later, when farmers learned that if they grew MUCH MORE than they needed, they could trade their excess.
Secrets Of Wealth
This is when societies first became rich.
When they could use wealth, to make more wealth.
The next tipping point came with the Industrial Revolution.
When energy and science combined to create a massive EXPLOSION in global trade and wealth.
Today, however, we seem to be going backward.
We’re all brainwashed to ONLY think about now.
This INNER VIEW of time is why EVERYBODY is in debt.
Individuals, companies, governments.
But the flip side is by slowing shifting your own view of time, you can absolutely DOMINATE.
In every way.
You’ll be the TWO-EYED king or queen in the land of the blind.
