Fears and the Caveman Brain

Our brains really aren’t designed for the 21st century.

In a world of hostile tribes and saber toothed tigers, jumping to conclusions about what is safe is a useful survival strategy.

  • expanding what’s possible for us
  • knowing who we are and what we like
  • increasing our capabilities and skills
