It is precisely the sort of physically and mentally exhausting crisis, the crossing of the threshold between two worlds, to kinds of reality, if you will, that is part and practice of ecstatic Shamanism everywhere. Its models of trade, technological diffusion, and cultural progress are well beyond those of either Rise of Nations or Age of Empires. It is the mind that creates this universe, (Manomatram Jagat; Manahkalpitam Jagat).

So far in this e ssay, mammals have received scant attention, but the mammals� development before the Cenozoic is important for understanding their rise to dominance.� The therapsids that led to mammals, called cynodonts, first appeared in the late Permian, about 260 mya, and they had key mammalian characteristics.� Their jaws and teeth were markedly different from those of other reptiles; their teeth were specialized for more thorough chewing, which extracts more energy from food, and that was likely a key aspect of ornithischian success more than 100 million years later.� Cynodonts also developed a secondary palate so that they could chew and breathe at the same time, which was more energy efficient.� Cynodonts eventually ceased the reptilian practice of continually growing and shedding teeth, and their specialized and precisely fitted teeth rarely changed. [379] �Mammals replace their teeth a maximum of once. �Along with tooth changes, jaw bones changed roles.� Fewer and stronger bones anchored the jaw, which allowed for stronger jaw musculature and led to the mammalian masseter muscle (clench your teeth and you can feel your masseter muscle).� Bones previously anchoring the jaw were no longer needed and became bones of the mammalian middle ear. [380] � The jaw�s rearrangement led to the most auspicious proto-mammalian development: it allowed the braincase to expand .� Mammals had relatively large brains from the very beginning and it was probably initially related to developing a keen sense of smell .� Mammals are t he only animals with a cerebral cortex, which eventually led to human intelligence.� As dinosaurian dominance drove mammals to the margins, where they lived underground and emerged to feed at night, mammals needed improved senses to survive, and auditory and olfactory senses heightened, as did the mammalian sense of touch.� Increased processing of stimuli required a larger brain, and brains have high energy requirements .� In humans, only livers use more energy than brains. [381] � Cynodonts also had turbinal bones, which suggest that they were warm-blooded. �Soon after the Permian extinction, a cynodont appeared that may have had a diaphragm; it was another respiratory innovation that served it well in those low-oxygen times, functioning like pump gills in aquatic environments download.
