This week in class we watched a really interesting clip. It said that in order to understand why we are attracted to things today, we need to understand our own past ancestors. I thought it gave excellent examples, such as why humans love fatty or carb enriching foods. This is because thousands of years ago humans did not have rich food (for energy) readily available and when it was our ancestors would devour it. Another example given was certain cut diamonds or jewelry, which related back to our first hominid tools. Having a better understanding about our past/history allows people to a better appreciation of things and nature.
