Spring out your Summer Hunter and Escape the Infinite Autumn

We evolved from primates to be extremely smart upright creatures with amazing abilities agile, fast, nimble, strong, supple warriors in tune with our environment… and what did we use our intelligence for??? To create an artificial environment so that we could spend all day sitting down, wasting the precious physical gifts we are ALL born with…

I suppose we are all a bit messed up because we are encouraged as infants talk and stand up, but as soon as we learn how, adults tell us to shut up and sit down. We get really good at the shutting up and sitting down and many of us end up doing it for life sitting 9-5 in an office jobs, and then going home and, after a few chores, continue to sit for the rest of the night in silence watching TV… (I can’t say too much because I’m on my ass now, but I did get into the gym for an hour this evening LOL)… We eat autumnal foods all day long every day and so we’ve devolved into a creature that has become fairly helpless and would find it difficult to survive even a few days in nature. We are satisfied with the comforts of the infinite autumn, but yet we hear the call of our inner primal warrior too, wanting us to be in the best shape possible for ourselves, to feel attractive, to be and feel healthy, and to be less self-conscious… can we have our cake and eat it too???

You see I love our modern world, this is my home, it is amazing to be a part of it with all the technology, travel, art, fashion, music and so on, and I don’t wish to live in the jungle like Tarzan (not permanently anyway, I like visiting regularly). I like most things about this place, but I also like being primal, being strong, fit, agile, fast, supple and, you know what, the two don’t have to be mutually exclusive. We can develop these gifts through simulating what our ancestors did in terms of food and exercise and getting out into nature to enjoy our heritage, like an ancient warrior who was a master of the land. In tune with both their body and the song of the natural world.

Lets understand this environment and be smart about running the gauntlet of it, and use the intelligence to take back what is rightfully ours, our true form, to escape without having to leave…

Spring out your Summer Hunter and Escape the Infinite Autumn.

Don’t Eat for Winter.
