Tonight we welcome Lucy Wyatt to the Lounge. We will discuss Lucy's new book 'Approaching Chaos' and how the theories of how civilization began. We will examine an alternative ancient archetype dating from the Bronze Age that helped cities exist in harmony with nature. This archetype influenced the ancient Greeks and Romans, often mistakenly admired as examples of civilized societies. In the first hour, we'll explore the origins of farming, domestication of animals and cities. She explains the intention of the original civilizations, in contrast to the Roman way. Lucy challenges the accepted view of progress since the end of the Ice Age. We'll also touch upon migration, catastrophe and the shadow version of cities. We will also talk about Lucy's upcoming festival, The Emerging Knowledge Festival...
