Watch “Dancing with Your Lizard Brain” Seth
“Our current system was designed to keep us alive back when we literally lived in the wild – when had to hunt for lunch, and worry about becoming lunch to a saber tooth tiger.
We found that the best way to do this was to listen to our fear, to avoid taking risks, avoid making mistakes, avoid the unknown, and avoid standing out at all costs.
New or unknown = danger = death
Mistakes = danger = death
Standing out = getting kicked out of the tribe = death
Obey, play it safe, fit in, do what you know, live.
Again this approach was highly effective for that environment but is far less useful today.
And that is the glitch.”
