These video clips are from the Humanists of Georgia monthly meeting, which happened last weekend (4/19/09). The talk is called “Artifacts of the Caveman Mind.” This is yet another experiment in communicating the enlightened caveman concept. What do you think?

Dear Chris Wilson,
I attended this presentation & I put it on the other video you did in Dec 08. I had a query.
What were the 6 things that were in your presentation that you believe has been passed onto today homo sapiens by the Artifacts of the Caveman Mind?
I could not find it in the book.

Hey Marko –
Over the years, I’ve identified quite a few “artifacts.” The talk, however, just covered six:
1.In-Group Prejudice
2.Comparative Analysis Drives Decision-Making
3.The Herd Mentality
4.High-Status Admiration and Emulation
5.Focus On Looks
6.We’re Natural Accountants
I think I’ll post the transcript of the talk, as well. Stay tuned…
