If we return to Leaver cultures we will still be subject to the same conditions as Leaver peoples ten thousand years ago which gave rise to Taker culture. What would stop Taker culture from springing back to dominate humanity again?
When an unworkable idea is finally shown to be unworkable, there is no realistic chance that it will at some later date "spring back" to vitality. People will never again be persuaded that the earth is the center of the universe. People will never again be persuaded that the earth is flat. The medieval Age of Faith will never occur again. Once people finally realize that Taker mythology is driving us to extinction, there's no more reason to imagine that it will somehow "spring back" to exercise its former dominance over us than there is to imagine that the Roman Church will somehow "spring back" to exercise the dominance over Christianity it exerted in the Middle Ages.
