Episode 97

The fifth episode in a series with Gyrus which sprawls across a variety of topics in anthropology, cosmology, cognitive science and recent political developments. Gyrus continues talking about his evolving ideas about "polar cosmology" leading us back to the topic of egalitarianism and how hunter-gatherer societies allowed hierarchies to develop. Gyrus describes some important work done by radical anthropologists David Graeber and David Wengrow on seasonal gatherings and how these may be key to answering this question. The 12,000 year old site at Göbekli Tepe comes up, leading on to a brief discussion of cave art and Graham Hancock's writings on the topic.
