To grind this down to the simplest terms, I'm quite happy not knowing the right way to scrub an article of clothing, using sand and beating methods. I'm also happy to be able to do five loads of laundry in one day with almost no effort.
We've become an exception processing, conceptual problem solving society, allowing technology to handle more mundane tasks. In becoming so, it's freed our minds to focus on improvements, rather than focus on casting spears into large animals. But one day, I WILL attend a pit BBQ where I can walk up to a cow being roasted on a spit and slice a dripping sliver with my swiss army knife, to consume. No one will ever take the primitive out of me!
