Today’s guest is a walking reminder of our human origins, or said differently, how we as humans used to live & think for 99% of the time on Earth. The main challenge he’s been tackling for over 30 years now is:
“How do we retain some sense of our ancestry and our ancestral ways while making it work in the modern world & environment.”
And as Frank beautifully put it, the challenge isn’t small, because: “We’re just animals who are trying to function in an alien environment. We’re all trying to adapt to this world, that we don’t really understand.”
The 3 main questions me & Frank are exploring today:
❓ What caused the big shift from humans living in harmony with Nature, and the present moment, where it’s a Man against Nature, trying to master it.
❓ Why a trip to the Ground ZERO of Human experience, which is Africa and its native Tribes, changed Frank‘s perspective on the human condition – forever
❓ What is the unifying story that will bring, us humans, together, moving forward?
