Technology is helping the world stay connected and grow at an alarming rate. All these variables shift the measure of how much work it takes to live as a hunter-gatherer with a low dose of technology.
Imagine living in the world without the simple things that we overlook each and every day, things such as fire, and paper. The growth rate of Homo sapiens would head quickly towards zero. Living close to the land as hunter-gatherers do, I got colder often, hotter more frequently, soaking wet a lot, bitten by insects faster, more synchronized to rhythm of the day and seasons.
Ideally, much of the paper will focus on how life would be without technology by basing the argument on all spheres of life.
It brings us together through instant communication, but made us further apart when interacting face to face as some of the new generation have not developed the art of conversation. Even termites themselves construct vast towering shells of mud for their homes.
A more realistic and less contentious average for food gathering time among contemporary hunter-gatherer tribes based on a wider range of data is about 6 hours per day.
