Of course, the only time we were probably ever in balance was when we were hunter-gatherers. Then we were as much/more prey than predator, and the average life span was in the low twenties!

Of course the problem is that the balance is out of wack...that's the
problem with humans vs nature all over the world, but most

can limit it to that because farming, by its very nature, is an
unnatural activity which causes imbalance in the native ecosystem.
Actually, it seems that ALL human activity results in
imbalance...hmmm...that says something about us humans, doesn't it?
