"Why do you hunt?"
"But I do still hunt, and when someone occasionally asks me why it occurs to me that the only reason we have brains large enough to formulate that question is that our distant ancestors got the extra protein it took to evolve the organ by supplementing their diets with meat, first as scavengers, then as hunters. Hunting made us who and what we are. It is in our nature more deeply than clothing, tools or language."
