Connected to the Earth

From a conversation today.

Tasha: "I want to be an aborigine before the white people came. They were totally connected to the earth."
H: "How do we get back to that?"
Tasha: "I believe we have to change evolutionarily. Our brains have to evolve like now."

Only visceral experiences will provide that. Literature is a good start but literature is comfort-in-your-own-home material. That's why I'm impatient with academia. The understanding of urgency is just not there. If more people get connected-to-the-earth-brain maybe we'll figure it out.
