We were wanderers from the beginning.
We knew every stand of tree for a hundred miles.
When the fruits and nuts were ripe, we were there.
We followed the herds in their annual migrations. We rejoiced in fresh meat.
Through stealth, feint, ambush and main force assault. A few of us co-operating accomplished what many of us each hunting alone, could not.
We depended on one another.
Making it on our own was as ludicrous to imagine as was settling down.
Working together we protected our children from the lions and the hyenas.
We taught them the skills they would need, and the tools.
Then, as now, technology was the key to our survival.
For 99.9% of the time since our species came to be we were hunters and foragers, wanderers on the Savannahs and the steps.
There were no border guards then, no customs officials, the frontier was everywhere.
We were bounded only by the earth, and the ocean, and the sky.
