Source text - Spanish
Nunca terminaremos de saber cómo empezamos, pero corren hipó- tesis. Faustino Cordón, en su libro Cocinar hizo al hombre, supone que fue porque no supimos hacer lo que otros sí: que cuando nuestros an- cestros eran aquellos monos que andaban por los árboles buscando bro- tes, hojas y algún insecto perdido, hubo algunos que aprendieron a col- garse más y mejor de las ramas.
Ésos originaron a los grandes simios: animales que fueron desarrollando brazos y torsos poderosos para viajar de rama en rama, que se apoderaron de ese territorio apetecido y expul- saron a los otros: nuestros ancestros, incapaces, impotentes, tuvieron que bajarse de esos árboles y buscarse la vida en el suelo.

Con aquella derrota, se dice, empezó el hombre.

Hay quienes dicen que ahora –superpoblación, cambios de clima, agotamiento de los suelos y del agua– viene «la guerra por los alimen- tos». La guerra por los alimentos existe desde siempre, y siempre sigue. Sólo que hay, entre batallas, momentos de calma relativa en que los ga- nadores son tan ganadores que no precisan pelear para seguir disfrutan- do del triunfo.
Translation - Chinese
我們始終無法確切明瞭人類的起源,不過理論眾多紛紜。《烹飪造就了人類》(Cocinar hizo al hombre) 的作者和生物學家法烏斯汀.柯頓(Faustino Cordon) 認為,那是因為我們沒有其他動物的生存技能。當終將演變成人類的一群猿猴依舊覓食嫩枝、樹葉和無處可藏的昆蟲時,另一群猴子已學會如何攀向更高和更多食物的樹梢。後者演變成猿猴,發展出強壯的手臂和軀幹,橫行樹間,並佔據令人渴求的存活境地,也驅逐了我們的祖先──一群無能的猿猴,只能爬下樹梢,畏縮的在地上求生。

據說,人類是從那場戰敗演變過來的。

隨著人口過剩,全球暖化,水土資源的枯竭,有人預測「糧食之戰」已然來臨。對食物的爭奪是自古既有,且不斷延續的一場戰事; 只不過,當贏家在一次次滿載而歸的勝利之間,暫時讓其永無止盡的野心歇息時, 人類才得以享有休戰片刻的安寧。
