Paleolithic thought patterns

Today is a sunny day, I am not in the country where I usually live, in the afternoon I seat outdoors in the South Loan and I read an interview with Edward Osborne Wilson in New Scientist magazine. In between other interesting things, I find one sentence:

"We have created a Star Wars civilization but we have Paleolithic emotions, medieval institutions and godlike technology."

And this sentence inspires me to think that "not the content of our thought process, but the way our thought operates is paleolithic or pre-paleolithic" and we are not aware of it.
