Charles Darwin (1809-1882) See, ‘Admiration’ in photo albums! And, sex (adolescent and adult sex i.e., no ‘teenage’ years in prehistory’) – carrying a ‘larger brain’ in evolutionary terms is very expensive to run, consuming a quarter of daily calorific intake on tick-over; primitive man (early sedentist), and a hunter-gatherer, had little time or any tolerance for hierarchical social structures (hero worship was frowned upon), except, mostly, when it came to sex. Ref, ‘Walking With Cavemen’ Winston and ‘Virus Of The Mind’ Brodie. The pick of the (female?) bunch going to powerful leaders, with their enhanced sexual prowess, inc – some peers: evangelists, priests (sex and religion), medicine-men, kings and queens, warriors, so on…
The ‘brightest’ question put to Google, ever, "What did people do in prehistory to have fun?"

Prehistoric teenage female and male. Immaturity of youth: see, Farb p30-31.
Today’s high school and college students are sexually and socially mature, while technologically still juveniles. If denied the economic and social benefits to which maturity entitles them, simply because they have not yet acquired all of the technologies skills needed in the modern world: young people may become restless and very antisocial in their behaviour. (menstruation females 1900-14 – 14-15 years – Now, 198O’s 12.6 years – what next! An evolutionary trend?)

Another, Google question, "Why did ‘primitive man’, ‘prehistoric man’, in ‘prehistory’: live that way?" (100,000 + + years and more, with so little advance, just like: we could get really stuck now, with religious fundamentalism, superstition – ‘fetish’ – savage science – anthropological anomy, pseudo science, intelligent design and creationism, so on…)" http://luckyme0.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!A18BF3FCC5E126A2!1520.entry Also, as children, prehistoric boy or girl, were totaly absorbed in the activities of their parents (hypnotically so? Ref, ease of human indoctrination and the inherent wishing to believe – almost anything, esp – when young). Therefore, society could not advance – parent to child, child becomes parent and in ‘exactly’ the same mould (also, sometimes: denied the processes of learning by parents or peers, who have gone through a learning processes themselves, but deny it to children or young adults – often reinforced by religion or ideology – missing out on, and denying, or in the denial of, "becoming human is a process not some event" – resulting, in most, by a stressful and emotional – kickback. Ref, ‘Immaturity of Youth’ – today, above), as seen in some/most tribal cultures – today – the ‘closed system’ of no cultural, and no social advance, or any scientific advance – non-experimental science! Dr J.Bronowski ‘The Long Childhood’ DVD, BBC Shop. Channel4 – Cutting Edge ‘Virgin Daughters’ http://www.channel4.com/culture/microsites/C/cutting_edge/virgin_daughters/index.html How we all will view (most) of our parents or peers: “In spite of a Natural History that was nothing but a set of drearily moralistic symbols, in the teeth of a theology which, instead of regarding words as the signs of things, treated things and events as the signs of biblical or Aristotelian words, our ancestors remained relatively sane. Note: I would say, ‘only a very few’ – ‘lead in the pipes’. And they achieved this feat by periodically escaping from the stifling prison of their bumptiously rationalistic philosophy, their anthropomorphic, authoritarian and non-experimental science, their all too articulate religion, into non-verbal, other than human worlds inhabited by their instincts, by the visionary fauna of their mind’s antipodes and, beyond and yet within all the rest, by the indwelling spirit.” A.Huxley.

A mother’s complaint: about a sixties (1960’s) party and all that ‘entailed’, which we threw one really hot night on a local beach, "My daughter is only sixteen and there are sixty or more people (swimming) naked.

The USA: BBC 2 Horizon: The President’s Guide to Science. Horizon asks some of the biggest names in science to have a quiet word with the new President, be it Obama or McCain. The United States President is quite simply the most powerful man on earth, but past Presidents have often known little about science. That is a problem when the decisions they make will affect every one of us, from nuclear proliferation to climate change. To help the new President get to grips with this intimidating responsibility, some of the world’s leading scientists, from Dawkins to Watson, share some crucial words of advice. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00dlr2j
