“Civilization is a product of the cerebral cortex” – Carl Sagan
For this new theme we want to explore the lived-in world – people, cultures, societies. What makes us what we are today? It’s an invitation to show us the insights of this world from your own perspective!
From individuals to nations; city living and urban sprawl to rural life; the elites and the downcasts; domestication and our escapes from it; social trends, anthropology, technological advancements and our interactions with the natural world… Show us civilization!
