    The most important aspect of being Primal for me is rediscovering my own drives and thoughts as experienced by an animal on the earth. The nutrition and fitness thing is for me an effect and consequence of this, not the other way around; I was tired of identifying with this or that cause or group and wanted to be me, this genetic expression in this body. That made a lot of my behavior then seem insane and contrary to what I truly wanted.

    That's because to cram us all into the grid that they built out of iron and oil and concrete, they have to break our mind (like with any domesticated animal) and make us stop identifying with ourselves and our own needs and appetites. We are made to feel puny, insignificant, powerless and alone but for inclusion in their game. So we identify with our captors and become sports fans and democrats and this or that class with this or that interest- our genetic demands for intense experiences and our need to be endure traumatic upheaval are made vicarious, so that instead of successfully fleeing predators, aiding friends, interacting with our ecology and protecting people, we are bathed in electronic media that simulates this for us.

    Just enough to keep us healthy and sane enough to get to work tomorrow.
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    Hopefully you learned something from it. Every time I am presented with an out of the ordinary situation I try to gain some knowledge from it.

    Well said.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Well said. Although I'd say that being a sports fan is actually satisfies a primal urge. You identify with a tribe. You become part of the battle. You cheer on raw athleticism. For me, my lifetime connection with sports has made m I feel more human, not less

    Yeah but the identity association is false- you are made to feel like you and the vigorous warrior aged specialists are the same band and that their victory is your victory. In fact, you got drunk, or sat on a couch, or compiled statistics online at a monitor.

    Like all of their sorcery though it has the whiff of a promise of an element of truth. Of course we have a natural demand to merge our identity to that of the weapon-wielding competitive men of violence. Otherwise the same guys in different colored shirts cross the river and take our goats and women.

    As someone who competed in several sports at a high level, watching them is most definitely a way to stay a connected to the tribe. Much like aged warriors of yesteryear, guys like me enjoy that connection to the new generation doing battle

    Everytime we talk about how the sports industry is part of CW jerkoff fantasy life, we get some athletes that object; please understand that we are not talking about people for whom the culture of sport serves as an arena in which they actually develop and compete; I am talking about the diabetic fatasses at bars who need sports to say "we" and mean "people with better living conditions than my loser ass." There are a great many of them. The networks don't broadcast competitive sports and endless droning commentary all day every day for you and people like you man. It serves a specific function that has nothing whatsoever to do with development of the body and mind.
