sorry for taking shortcuts...I should have provided the link to the primal reference
I traced back to this from a comment someone had made on itviewtopic.php?f=8&t=2482&p=2887&hilit=primal+man#p2887
looks like it may be more about the male female thing than the more general topic of the sensor platform primitive rulesets
Regarding the D (of R/L/D), "my" hypothesis (I assume I am not the first person to suggest this) is that part of reducing entropy is to explore the hard-wired genetic code that programs our impulsive life and adopt what could be called "Anthropological Correctness"...which is a bit counterintuitive in that its a good thing in this context.
It basically boils down to a study of the lifestyle of primitive tribes as a benchmark for the conditions that our genetic code "expects" or anticipates upon birth...and taking a measure of the extent to which our lifestyle choices deviate from this benchmark...which is a measure of our primal stress coefficient.
Some speculative results and therapies from this are:
- Adoption of a paleolithic (organic high nutrient) diet
- When possible, stand if you are sitting, walk if you are standing, run if you are walking (the body is optimized for movement), and burning calories permitting higher high nutrient intake
- Have children as young as possible (for the female) and have grandparents take a significant or even primary role in their supervision (the younger the mother's DNA, the healthier the child) [a ruleset that the British aristocracy had/have adopted ie. Diana not going to University was typical]
- Women and men should look to their own sex for each other's social company for most waking hours rather than spending most or all of their time with their spouse (latter puts inorganic stress on marriage) [this diminishes when both partners are hemispherically balanced]
- There is a base "need" or appetite to work for about 4 hours a day (whether you need to or not financially)
- There is a base need/appetite for low-intensity non-work sitting around with your own mind, which modern life thwarts (Italians call this "the sweetness of doing nothing - la dolce far niente") [which meditation attempts to compensate for]
- We have a baked in hunger to be surrounded by life in the form of village arrangements, livestock and plants. Tropical and semi-tropical is even better.
- A fire burning on in a fireplace is cheap therapy.
Of course, all this has to be balanced with practical and higher ruleset considerations...its just one perspective to consider. Not saying I actually do all of this myself.
If one is living alone in an apartment building with no social network and no garden to tend or animals to care for, and trudge to work to spend the day in a windowless artificially lit cubical seeking to avoid social interaction (Joe vs the Volcano), and you spend all your spare time occupying your mind with video games, forums and mass media...well, no wonder we are depressed. (this is just a general compulsive rant...not directed at you Ted!)
