Wow, it's so hard for me to think in all these biological perspectives. Now it's apparent I don't have a very strong foundation in biology ("schema") to put all these ideas. Thanks for your insight. :) Clearly there's lots I can learn!

Good edit, @DQdlM. I changed the word consuming to gather because it seems we'll never stop consuming, but would we stop hunting/foraging if we knew the cost was more than the benefit? I was the one who originally used the word "consuming" in my post. My fault. Thanks for the edit. :)
