Welcome to Stuff, the place where we explore our ideas about living well, trying our best to offer practical guidance and only occasionally drift into the indulgence of waxing philosophical. Today I want to talk about a theme that forms the foundation of much of our worldview, yet we have never spelled it out specifically. We are living in a human zoo and not the natural environment for our species. The question is not whether we can escape it, but how do we best shape our artificial environment - we are simultaneously the captives and the zookeepers. Let’s get to it!
