Com’on guys, calling Rousseau a Noble Savage was serious humor and a true compliment, gad…

While unusual as a candidate for evolutionary precursor, the philosopher Rousseau must head the list, his often
‘discredited’ speculations about the Noble Savage being a prime ‘Just So Story’ bordering on theory, with his protest that the ‘descent of man’ revisited by him found ‘man everywhere in chains’. Rousseau is a notable case of
the savage in question, perhaps we so should nominate him.Perhaps the nineteenth century idealization should yield to that ‘hi-tech primitive’, homme moyen sauvage, the homo nasa-ensis. But then again, we have seen the coming of ‘Evolution The Movie’, Avatar, prophesy the ‘technology of soul’, coming full circle past the detour
of scientism to the avatars of astral projection, the last of the Mohicans redux.

btw, I had no idea there are public domain Disney images:

Merrie melodies thats all folks

This one, however, is not, or contested…
Warning, possibly illegal usage, avert your gaze…
