A group of prehistoric hunter-gatherers are seated around a fire, their bellies full with the bounty of a successful hunt. Gorg, the alpha-male, recounts proudly how he threw the sharpened flint-tipped spear at the running antelope, resulting in the animal’s immediate death. Spared the typical hours of tracking an injured beast under the hot sun, the hunters enjoyed a rare easy day, expending few calories yet consuming many.
