      Bah, I beg to disagree with you right here. Industralisation and civilisation are enemies to a progressive natural human. Our ancestors were more interested in spiritual enlightenment, not material wealth and that explains why they lived for long . All we need is eat naturally, love , socialize and respect mother Earth, not exploit it like the Europeans are doing. We are protectors of this beautiful Earth.
