I was moved by tales told by African natives of their ancestors who lived off the land and shared the scarce resources such as water with the wild predators. The predators had prey they much preferred to humans and the humans had no concept of killing predators for fun or profit. Ancient Truce (an allegory, since these two would most likely not have shared the waterhole at the exact same time) elicits the feeling of guarded but respectful coexistence that worked so well in a simpler and more sincere time of sustainable living on this planet.
