Just want to clarify something from my previous post. My rendition of Quinn's work was a very condensed version and could not possibly cover all his ideas.
BTW, he calls "prehistory" The Great Forgetting. Until quite recently, humans "forgot" there was a time before recorded history in which man lived and lived quite well in the community of life. With the advent of wide-spread totalitarian agriculture man "forgot" his hunter-gatherer roots and determinded the world was made for man and the rest of the community of life be danged.
