THE PRIMAL LAWS
Here are the 10 irrefutable Primal Laws that you will see referenced several times on this website. These are taken verbatim from Mark Sisson’s book, The Primal Blueprint.
Primal Blueprint Law #1: Eat Lots of Plants and Animals
Primal Blueprint Law #2: Avoid Poisonous Things
Primal Blueprint Law #3: Move Frequently at a Slow Pace
Primal Blueprint Law #4: Lift Heavy Things
Primal Blueprint Law #5: Sprint Once in a While
Primal Blueprint Law #6: Get Adequate Sleep
Primal Blueprint Law #7: Play
Primal Blueprint Law #8: Get Adequate Sunlight
Primal Blueprint Law #9: Avoid Stupid Mistakes
Primal Blueprint Law #10: Use Your Brain
You will notice that Sisson calls them the Primal Blueprint Laws, whereas I simply call them the Primal Laws. As far as I know, anthropologist haven’t really established Primal Laws like scientists have established the laws of physics, but for the sake of our learning objectives, the Primal Laws are validated enough to be “set in stone”.
I’m also going to add some “doctrines” of my own.
Primal Doctrine #1: Spend Lots of time outside
Primal Doctrine#2: Seek Adventure constantly
Modern Doctrine#1: Learn to generate passive income so you can quit your job and enjoy living like a Cavemen more often. The concept of money didn’t really exist in those days, but seeing as how it’s what makes the world turn round these days and we can’t live without it, if you really want to live like Caveman in the modern world, it takes time and money. Organic veggies and grass fed beef aren’t cheap! Getting adequate sleep and play takes time. If you spend all your time trying to make money, you can see you’ll have dilemma. Plus work just sucks.
