    where did grok sleep?

    Does it matter? I'm not going to be sleeping out under moonlight, and even so, moonlight is a much lower light contaminant than what we have in our regular environment.

      he functioned with the natural flow of the world. He had access to natural light at all times, I'm sure. If he had a hut, it probably let in a little light from the moon between thatching or whatev, but I doubt it was total darkness.

        I did the army thing a few years back and the first time out in the bush on exercises I woke up thinking that someone was shining a spotlight in my eyes. It was the moon. Always found it annoying when trying to sleep. I reckon Grok would have found a cave.

          Me vs. Russian Boar, hunt is on Aug. 20th. WHAT'S MORE PRIMAL THAN THAT?!

              It most certainly would have varied. There are times when I have been sleeping out in the mountains, and upon waking I can't see a damn thing; its pitch black. Other times the moon is so bright that I have to throw one of my arms over my head to fall asleep.

                Sleeping out in the open might cause problems if you live in a habitat that has predators also.

                    On which continent during which era and which terrain and weather? And seeing as how the moon cycles, it would mean bright nights and dark nights.

                      If I were to sleep outside tonight under an open sky, I'd die of exposure. Too cold, too wet. (Northern California, Mendocino County)

                      If I were in the tropics, it might be possible - anywhere else, probably no dice. Which means that direct moonlight exposure was probably quite low while sleeping.

                        And of course, why would you leave your naked, brown, smelly and edible body vacant on open ground while you go on vacation? How often do small/medium-sized things that survive sleep in the open?

                          yes so did he sleep next to a fire, at all times?

                            I'd suggest you try it once. Go out into your backyard, or a friend's. Get a decent sleeping bag and go to sleep. You'll get your answer pretty quickly. I do it when camping during the summer, but only out west.

                            Some issues you come across today, which are less of a problem today than they were "back then" are snakes and poky/bitey bugs. Additionally, predators love exposed, sleeping animals. (We're not talking the fun kind of cougar.) Now, what happens when the weather suddenly changes during the middle of the night and it drops below freezing? You wake up dead.

                            Now, sleeping in a cave has some specific benefits that outweigh the inherent and super obvious risks. One benefit is preservation of heat, albeit minimal it helps you survive the night sometimes, you also aren't exposed to weather. Add fire into the mix and things get a little cozy. Add in friends and things are almost downright homey.

                            So, after his fire went out, he most probably slept in complete dark until the sun rose and lit up the entrance to the cave he was in.

                              this is definitive.

                              you win the thread.
