Greetings astute traveller, this website now exists for historical reasons.

Much has been learned since 2006. I urge you to keep exploring the evolution of information through other websites.

Philosophy / Re: Science Vs Faith
« on: March 09, 2008, 09:29:47 PM »
Faith is good to have, faith in yourself, faith in your own abilities. Optimism about yourself and your ability to overcome. I don't feel the need for faith in a God, to change things I should be changing myself. Not nocking religious people - plenty of people I know are religious and good people.

Fitness & Exercise / Does anybody else...
« on: March 09, 2008, 09:24:49 PM »
Throughout the day, if I sit down too long I get a bit restless. I like to randomly contract my muscles, as tense and tight as possible. When I did this with my legs, my calves grew quite strong, and in my brazillian jiu jitsu class, the other students told me how much my guard position had improved (and these guys were a lot stronger than me). Even the instructor had a little trouble breaking it. So does anybody else practice what I call "passive contraction training"? Obviously it's not as good as a proper workout regimen, but I think it's decent to get the blood flowing and good if for whatever reason you can't leave your desk.

I am loving that quote, the "Specialization is for insects" part especially. I'm going to try living like this.

Food & Diet / Re: Don't be fooled by the Low-Fat hype!

Good guide. Are you sure about saturated fats? From what I have read they are an essential, healthy component of a natural diet.

It's great that this is becoming more mainstream and accepted. I see you're writing a book? Well, when it's finished you can count on at least one sale from a caveman across the tasman  ;)

Wow Tony, that's beautiful. I love those winter landscapes.



Here's a sample of the Waitakere Ranges in Auckland, New Zealand. Not too far from where I live. Beautiful place.

General Discussion / Re: Economics: the division of labour

Hey Matt,
New to the board, but checked out the site a while back and agreed with it. Myself I am a fan of intermittent fasting, learnt it from the Warrior Diet, but consider paleo eating better than what Ori suggests: loads of carbs and avoiding fats that aren't nuts and seeds. Although he may have a point about the fat in commercial meat and dairy, from what I've heard it contains dioxin etc. Anyway, wanted to say that I like the site.

I do feel that division of labour is somewhat er, unnatural. I'd like to be able to grow my own fruit trees and vegetables in an natural, organic way that enriches or at least doesn't harm the soil I grow it in. Unfortunately this is not a possibility as I am a student living with my parents (who believe a lot of commercial propaganda, fat is bad etc) but I'd like to be able to in the future. I would love to be able to do more with nature, instead of studying to gain qualifications to work in a desk-job. As for illnesses, well, I haven't had any since eating a more natural diet and IF.
Cheers from a caveman in New Zealand,
Mike.
