...is from Recovery: Freedom From Our Addictions by Russell Brand. 'The object, in itself, is not bad'...and more.
We like to think, with our moon landings and smartphones and scientific breakthroughs, that we are superior to our primitive cavedwelling ancestors. Stop being so arrogant! The human brain is still, in many ways, designed for life tens or hundreds of thousands of years ago.
Today I explore what I call Cavebrain - those instinctual tendencies we have that were life-saving for our cavedwelling ancestors, but can disrupt not just our efforts at eating better, but at living better in the 21st century. In a nutshell, Cavebrain comes down to two things: our fight or flight mechanism, and our deep craving for the comfort and protection of a strongly connected tribe.
Find out how these two things can get us into trouble today, and how to manage Cavebrain so it isn't managing your life and eating patterns.
