Locked, or lost?

via Daily Prompt: Instinct

Is instinct all about self-preservation? I have to wonder if we as humans do/will have any left, having been presented with so many options, so many difficult choices or on the flip-side crushed by convenience, now and throughout history.

What if, through some magic, the world was ‘rewild-ed’ and we were set or sent back hundreds or thousands of years and had to relearn the art of self-preservation? How to grow food and not just take it off the shelf at the grocery store… How to fight fatigue and disease and heal injury without modern marvels… How much wisdom is locked away and how much is simply lost?

Can we trust our guts still? Can we trust ourselves with ourselves?
