I have the feeling that, one day, it could all boil down to this--the formation of small, tribal communities of mutually dependent individuals, relying on one another not only for the basic necessities of life, but also for the propagation of the meme--that meme being the civilization from which a new society can form.
Clearly, this is what our ancestors did, and clearly we may be in a position of having to do it again. And what is almost frighteningly exciting about the whole concept of rebuilding a civilization is the idea that we can rebuild it BETTER.
Who would have thought that the end of the world could be so optimistic?!?!?!?! ;-)
Can we start right now? Pretty please?
