apparently it is something to do with the environment being temperate (by world standards). people weren't forced to work together to survive the winter. people could get by more opportunistically foraging and hunting without much organisation or planning. without much of a planting calender (agriculture). hunting (for example) large ground based birds that didn't have a land-based threat response...

food is plentiful and the climate won't kill you (unless your are really old or young) so you don't need to... labour to build a stone house or a log cabin... a more temporary shelter will suffice... so there isn't much of anything to do but to... play... most of every day... all up in one anothers business and what are you doing why don't you stop what you are doing and entertain me...

that's a version of the story. one where people are focused on... each other. each other as the biggest source of threat. but also each other as the biggest source of reward. each other in a way that doesn't... allow for... co-operative or co-ordinated activity towards a greater project... like a massive physical protective structure for the group... or like a bridge... or a sewerage system... reading writing arithmetic...

the thought was that if the environment was harsher then people would be forced to work together to survive it.

but that's probably just an excuse for imposing a harsher environment.

i just read that the point of slums... is that it breeds an immunologically elite. that was how we 'discovered' / 'invented' the cure for most things... the immune system solution to HIV and much of everything else... it all starts with tissue from samples from the individuals who are living there right amongst it and who have developed *natural immunity*. of course it is a lot of work to find those people, collect samples from them, reproduce what their bodies made in the lab, package that for wider distribution...

but maybe that's why each country wants to develop (and control) it's own, particular, cesspool of a slum.
