|Why are you here?|
To enjoy the experience of learning and teaching, opening new minds, challenging old ones and doing what may, to an outsider, appear utterly bizarre, even sick!
|Any other personal information/resources/advice/ideas to share?|
Post-graduate studies in anthropology, archaeology, ecology and evolution. Currently working part-time for a telecommunication giant (for Australia that is), also working full-time on an honours level thesis in anthropology. Question is: Why did the majority of human societies for the longest time never evolve the way we imagine societies evolve (i.e. becoming more complex, taking over one another, intensifying their agriculture...). Writing/playing music on instruments such as guitar, djembe and pipes.
Ideas?! I've got a million... Main ambitions: to receive a PhD in anthropology before I turn 40; to make a living and pref. live communmally as part of a New Tribal organisation such as a tour company teaching and learning about the skills and worldviews that sustained humnaity for tens of thousands of years before THIS. Imagine a tour company that takes participants out onto country, teaching and learning during the day about survival and lifestyle, by night exploring the religious/cultural foundations of the worldviews that tie people to 'place', that address people's obligations to country/the world... meet indigenous guides who give first-hand accounts of their experiences... it's all possible!
