Douglas Adams: Human nature as an evolved creature

Douglas Adams talks about how our nature as an evolved creature and our limited perspective, can lead to some fundamental assumptions and misconceptions.

From a conference in 1998 called Der Digitale Planet (The Digital Planet, I guess), which also included Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Jared Diamond and Steven Pinker.
