Homo Habilis

I press a button. Morgan Freeman appears in front of me and says, "Shit". It's raining where he is. I press another button. He disappears.

I take this power for granted, but I don't have a clue how it works.

If our technology were to disappear tomorrow I wouldn't be able to do a thing to get it back. I don't even know how to smelt metal.

Maybe I'd have the wherewithal to go make myself a hand-axe, though I understand there's quite an art to knapping flint.

Left to my own devices I belong in the stone age- if that.

I have about as much aptitude for tool-making as a chimpanzee.
