古代文化の面白さ Fun of ancient culture

原始時代の文化とか生態を知るのは、現代人の心理とか現代の社会構造の根底が知れるように思えて、とても面白いのですよ。

文明というのはせいぜいここ一万年の出来事を指すわけですが、それ以前の何十万年とか何百万年ていう時間を人類は過ごしていて、そこで心理とか脳とか本能が構築されていて、近現代の出来事に目を向けるより、それらの古代の時代に目を向ける方がよっぽど、人や社会について知れるように思うのですよ。

by myself

I think it is very interesting to know the ancient culture or lifestyles. Because I feel I can know the roots of current humankind minds and the construction of society.

Civilization is a pretty recent thing. It’s indicated as these 10,000 years at longest. But humankind's history is much longer. It’s a hundred thousand years or million years. And in those pre-civilization ages many things of humankind, for example, mind, brain, and instinct, were constructed.

I think, we can know about current human and society focusing on those ancient ages further more than just focusing on modern or present things.

It is very interesting to learn about the culture and ecology of the primitive age, because it seems to me that we can learn about the psychology of modern people and the basis of our modern social structure.
The term “civilization” refers to the events of the last 10,000 years at most, but human beings spent hundreds of thousands or millions of years before that, where their minds, brains, and instincts were constructed. I think you can learn more about people and society by looking at those ancient times than by looking at modern events.
