Succeeding peoples have added, re-interpreted and either advanced or restrained civilization, in accordance with their own needs, ever since. The Church, which establishes herself in the world, is always exposed to the temptation of an excessive adjustment to the environment, to what is usually described as "worldliness." It's the biggest word in any of my courses. "Civilization" I define economically as those cultures which result from an agriculture intensive enough to yield a surplus of food, leading to a division of labor that allows some not to be farmers, thus making cities (as opposed to farming villages) possible.

Yet they were as beautifully smooth as her voice when she admitted: ``That protection naturally is only partial. There is the danger of her own self, poor girl. She requires guidance.'' I marvelled at the villainy of my tone as I spoke, but it was only assumed. ``I don't think she has done badly for herself, so far,'' I forced myself to say. ``I suppose you know that she began life by herding the village goats.'' In the course of that phrase I noticed her wince just the least bit The Collapse Of The Ottoman Empire (Topics In History Book 5). 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 Conspiracy to create Israel and Victimize Arabs.
