​🤔​ Thought of the Day: Your Ancestors Were Clingy & Why Community Means Survival

Recommended Posts

Inspired by Tatiana from The Business of Community:

Thousands of years ago, someone from your nomadic tribe would stand guard while you slept, protecting you from lurking lions.

Back then, people were tightly knit because of the dangers of nature. Your ancestors learned to depend on one another.

Could contain: Accessories, Art, Ornament, Tapestry, Painting, Archaeology, Person, Architecture, Building, Wall

This deep need for connection isn't just a whim. It's woven into our brains, rewarding us with joy when we're close to those we trust. Evolution has rewarded connection, because our ancestors learned - sometimes the hard way - that sticking together meant survival.  

We're the descendants of the clingiest ancestors who learned to harness community. The loners were eaten by lions 🦁.
