Modern civilization is a cage—a recently developed artificial habitat for humans who’ve spent the previous 2,000,000 years living in close connection with the earth.
Don’t think you’re in a cage? You sleep on a nice comfy bed, live in a temperature controlled box, drink water from bottles, sit around most of the time … and as far as exercise goes, exactly what’s the difference between a treadmill and a hamster wheel?
But don’t despair. Like any other animal born in captivity, you can manage to live a long healthy life as long as you make sure you get enough exercise, have some bright shiny toys to play with, and don’t let your keepers overfeed you or feed you anything other than what your species has evolved to eat in its natural habitat.
