And I can hardly remember my own feelings. The whole recollection of that time of my life has such a peculiar quality that the beginning and the end of it are merged in one sensation of profound emotion, continuous and overpowering, containing the extremes of exultation, full of careless joy and of an invincible sadness---like a day-dream. Perhaps not one in an age.'' It was the first time that the frank word, the clear idea came into the conversation and it made me feel ill with a sort of enraged faintness. ``Not for a moment,'' I declared, and was surprised to see her look pleased.

As ice sh eets retreated and today�s interglacial period began, humans already at the margins of those ice age environments simply spread toward the Arctic as far as they could.� From then until Europe began conquering the world 500 years ago, there were few mass migrations of note, such as the Bantu expansion in Africa, when pastoral nomads conquered parts of Eurasia, and when agricultural peoples displaced hunter-gatherers, particularly in Australia and the Americas .� But even with those migrations, it could be more of a cultural and technological migration than a human one, in which the �invaded� peoples adopted the often energetically superior practices of the �invaders� rather than being replaced by them.� Genetic testing has shown that this was largely the case in Europe (although perhaps more for the women than the men ), which has been one of the greater surprises of global genetic testing, although the research is in its early days, and more controversial findings are sure to come.� The evid ence of inter-human violence, both between early Homo sapiens groups and what happened to Neanderthals, Denisovans, Homo erectus, and the �hobbits� is more circumstantial than finding corpus delicti .� But after the megafauna were gone, the evidence becomes staggering for universal human violence, the kind that anthropologists pretended was not there for generations .� Those early slaughters before the Holocene were only a prelude.� When those relict populations were discovered by Europeans, they were all tremendously violent, both the hunter-gatherers and the agriculturalists of New Guinea�s highlands.� Their level of warfare technology obviously could not compete with Europe�s, and their style of warfare was dismissed by early European observers as ineffective and ritualized, but those Europeans understood �primitive� people�s warfare as well as they understood their cultures, which was not well at all, but that is also a trait of UP. [578] Hunter-gath erer lands are far more sparsely populated than agricultural or industrial lands because of how much energy people can extract from their environments. �Japanese rice farmers can extract 10 thousand times as much food energy from a hectare of land as Cro-Magnon hunter-gatherers could. [579] � At Japanese rice farmer levels of productivity, the yard of the home I was raised in could have met my family�s food requirements. [580] � The hunter-gath erer means of production and style of warfare seemed hopelessly inept when compared to European methods, but proportionally the violence of those societies was more than an order of magnitude greater than that seen in European societies.� As an example, the Chippewa people lived near North America�s Great Lakes and European expansion decimated them.� They had population attrition rates from warfare (between Indians) about four times that of Germany and Russia in the 20th century.� In the 20th century, which is history�s most war-torn in terms of absolute war deaths, if it had the war death rates of typical nonliterate societies instead of around 100 million war dead, there would have been two billion war dead. [581] � The high d eath rates from pre-state warfare were due to their political-economies.� In �civilized� war, the goal was conquering the enemy and extracting taxes from them, which could range from women (fertile females have been war booty for at least ten million years ), to fighting-age men, to food, gold, and other economic windfalls that are often called �tribute� in preindustrial societies.� That can only be accomplished with sedentary populations.� For hunter-gatherers, about the only �asset� other than useful women would have been the rivals� lands, so complete genocide and taking the vanquished�s lands and women was a goal met often enough, although a phenomenon appeared that continues to this day.� The economic bounty was often taken almost absent-mindedly, while the obsession was on humiliation, acquiring war trophies, etc.� Modern statesmen play a similar game, but it is for show, not taken seriously by the war planners, and used to manipulate the masses.
