It was a crumbling old Iraqi town, with its warren of alleys like today's Irbil or old Kirkuk, with mosques, churches and synagogues, its sufis and its Talmudic lawyers. Prehistory—meaning human societies without writing or widespread written... records—survived until Western culture and industrial society completed their globalization in the 20th century, making the topic of a course that begins with some very old fossils seem more current than you may think.

When that australopithecine Tesla made the first stone tool, his/her invention was transmitted via culture, probably by demonstration.� When Homo erecti made Acheulean hand axes, they were engaging in a craft that lasted more than a million years; it was obviously a standardized training, as all axes looked similar.� When that founder group left Africa, they had full command of language, a sophisticated toolset, and ideas were readily communicated, although it can be interesting to wonder what their beliefs were, if they had many.� Those indoctrinating priests concocted complex thought forms to seduce and control the masses.� Monumental structures in early civilizations were often architectural and engineering marvels, and the ancient Greeks began thinking in ways that could be called scientific .� When that approach took root in Europe, which already used Greek technology to great benefit, it led to the Scientific Revolution, which accompanied and mutually stimulated the Industrial Revolution.� In short, along with greater energy usage, mental feats also increased and were usually required for the next Epochal Event to manifest.� The Teslas and Einsteins of their day initiated the breakthroughs and the masses took the ride in the subsequent epoch and raised their level of mental prowess.� Calculus was only invented once (twice, really, as Leibniz and Newton did it independently), but it has been taught to students ever since as part of the mathematics curriculum.� Each energy epoch was initiated by and accompanied by increased mental accomplishment, and each breakthrough helped form the foundation of the next one, which Newton stated most famously The Field Guide to Early Man.

The Standard Model of particle physics is complex, but the preceding presentation is largely adequate for this essay�s purpose, while it can be helpful to be aware that the physics behind FE and antigravity technologies will probably render the Standard Model obsolete.� If FE, antigravity, and related technologies finally come in from the shadows, the elusive Unified Field may come with them, and the Unified Field might well be consciousness, which will help unite the scientist and the mystic, and that field may be divine in nature .� But that understanding is not necessary to relate the story that White Science tells today of how Earth developed from its initial state to today�s, when complex life is under siege by an ape that quickly spread across the planet like a cancer once it achieved the requisite intelligence, social organization, and technological prowess The Lost Worlds: The Story of Atlantis & The Lost Lemuria (Illustrated): Ancient Mysteries Studies.

That confounded Versoy shoved his nose into that business; he says accidentally. He saw them together on the Lido and (those writing fellows are horrible) he wrote what he calls a vignette (I suppose accidentally, too) under that very title. There was in it a Prince and a lady and a big dog. He described how the Prince on landing from the gondola emptied his purse into the hands of a picturesque old beggar, while the lady, a little way off, stood gazing back at Venice with the dog romantically stretched at her feet Annual Editions: Western Civilization, Volume 2. A recent study has challenged The Expensive-Tissue Hypothesis, at least as far as robbing energy from the digestive system to fuel the brain. [491] � The study compared brain and intestinal size in mammals and found no strong correlation, but there was an inverse correlation between brain size and body fat.� But since human fat does not impede our locomotion much, humans have combined both strategies for reducing the risk of starvation.� Whales have bucked the trend, also because being fatter does not impede their locomotion and provides energy-conserving insulation.� A human infant�s brain uses about 75% of its energy, and baby fat seems to be brain protection, so that it does not easily run out of fuel.� However, the rapid evolutionary growth of an energy-demanding organ like the human brain seems unique or nearly so in the history of life on Earth, and comparative anatomy studies may have limited explanatory utility.� There are great debates today on how fast the human brain grew, what coevolutionary constraints may have limited the brain�s development ( 1, 2, 3 ), and scientific investigations are in their early days. [492] About a quarter-mi llion years after Oldowan culture began, a new species appeared called Homo habilis, named by Louis Leakey in 1964.� Whether Homo habilis is really the first member of the human genus has been debated ever since.� As with all of its primate ancestors, Homo habilis was adapted for tree climbing.� Virtually all apes and monkeys sleep in trees, especially those in Africa.� Silverback gorillas are about the lone exception, along with some isolated chimps. �Homo habilis certainly slept in trees.� The predators of Afri can woodlands and grasslands have been formidable for millions of years, and predators of Homo habilis in those days included Dinofelis, Megantereon, and Homotherium .� Night camera footage is readily available on the Internet today showing the nighttime behaviors engaged in by hyenas, lions, and others. �The African woodlands and plains are extremely dangerous at night, just from roving predators, not to mention being stumbled into by elephants, rhinos, and water buffalos.� Today�s African hunter-gatherers sleep around the campfire to keep predators and interlopers at bay; a sentinel keeps watch as everybody sleeps in shifts through the twelve-hour nights.� They are safer from predation at night in camp than they are in daytime as they roam. [493] The anatomy of habilines (members of Homo habilis) spoke volumes about their lives.� They had brains of about 640 ccs, with an estimated range of 600 to 700 ccs, nearly 50% larger than their australopithecine ancestors and nearly twice that of chimps, and the artifacts they left behind denoted advanced cognitive abilities.� They stood about 1.5 meters tall (five feet), and weighed around 50 kilograms (120 pounds).� With the first appearance of habilines about 2.3 mya, Oldowan culture spread widely in East Africa and also radiated to South Africa.� Habiline skeletal adaptations to tree climbing meant that they slept there at night, just as their ancestral line did.� Their teeth were large, which meant that they heavily chewed their food.� Habiline sites have large rock hammers that they pounded food on, to break bones and crack nuts.� Those habiline stone hammers may well have also been used to soften meat, roots, and other foods before eating them. [494] � Sleeping in trees meant that habilines were preyed on, mostly by big cats.� Today, the leopard is the only regular predator of chimpanzees and gorillas, and leopards have developed a taste for humans at times.� But if modern studies of chimpanzees are relevant, our ancestors engaged in warfare for the past several million years, and monkeys have wars, so simian intra-species mass killings may have tens of millions of years of heritage.� Habilines were not only wary of predators, but also of members of their own species The Routledge Guidebook to Aristotle's Metaphysics (The Routledge Guides to the Great Books).
