    You do realize you're talking to a primary Ne systemic thinker, right
    Yeah I think I can wrap my head around that concept.
    You're right, it's a competition for resources, but it's a competition for diminishing returns. Competing has a cost, as do all things, even down to the level of physics.
    Yes, entropy is fun that way. Well then again if you think of it from one perspective its probably the reason for time itself.
    And why does everything have to be about right and wrong with you. *Napoleon Dynamite sigh*

    That's also why you have less apex predators than prey

    Not everything is about right or wrong, it's only the things that I care to talk about that are.

    Nihilist cat says nothing matters at the end. which is death. and sad.
    But nihilist cat doesn't believe in itself, so who cares.

    *kicks cat*

    Or maybe I just like kicking cats

    And we can go back even further and the alphabet gave us the Roman Legions and Roman roads and acquaducts and Pax Romana for almost a thousand years.

    The reality is that tribal life is short, sharp nasty and brutish.
    I'm not sure I agree, or that all that is counter intuitive. I think many people make assumptions about the past, which we can't know because we weren't there. You're right, technology has allowed for an expansion of culture, art, and education; but these things were always around in forms appropriate to the lifestyle of the time. The fact is that book learning won't teach you how to build a fire or hunt; you can't really know these things until you do them. You won't know the behavior of the animals you hunt until you observe them. You won't know how to identify edible and medicinal plants until you see them, or know how they affect you until you consume them. We live in a society of dependence on technology for our basic needs. If society collapsed most of us would be helpless. This is what I mean by laziness. Sure many people can become educated and sharpen their wits that way, but we're not forced to, and so the stupid people don't die.
