How come that the oldest and by far most sophisticated art ever found stretched from cold Siberia to almost equally cold Europe?
And how come that an apelike Floresiensis from SE-Asia with a "too small brain for toolmaking etc" actually made similar tools etc as did Homos with more than double its brain size?
Update: The Lion man on the map is now re-dated to some 40,000 BP
To PC-people and others with a racist agenda blurring the facts: Non-African art from 40,000 - 25,000 years ago - i.e. long before anything like this emerged in Mideast or Africa! And one thing is for certain, they weren't neolithic farmers!
If you feel frustrated abt the fact that Klevius includes (logical) islam criticism in anthropology, pls consider the frustration Klevius & others feel abt Wikipedia etc charlatanism all the time trying to blend in islam-boasting without a trace of logic (you know, those stupid "in islam/Koran bla bla bla", truly tiresome, aren't they)! And dangerous, keeping in mind that OIC, which represents all the world's muslims, is eager to implement Sharia under the cover of "human rights" in UN and the world! The same OIC that, together with Turkish PM Erdogan, consider telling the truth about islam (so called "islamophobia") a crime worse than islamic terrorism! Did you get that? Criticism/scrutiny of the worst ideological crime ever against humanity during 1400 years is considered a crime!
The scientific process
Science is all about coming up with intelligent speculative ideas that are possible and hence could be of general interest.
The senseless & unfounded view that science needs evidence instead of speculations completely misunderstands the scientific process.
Science starts with speculation! Evidence to support these ideas can only be searched for AFTER such speculations. The alternative would be the death of the scientific process altogether!
What's often confused is the scientific method with the scientific process. In fact, those very morons who don't have brains to distinguish between intelligent speculations & (their own) charlatanism, often hail subjectivism in different forms, e.g. by contaminating the scientific method with opinions (see more abt this on Klevius philosophy/science pages).
However, as good "speculations" need good brains, & as most researchers have average intelligence at the best, science is in need of superior intelligence (or pure luck, sometimes as a biproduct of an intense but often more or less blind search) & well informed brains for these “eggs of science” to hatch. This, however, leads to the next problem namely individual or collective “peer jealousy” (or politicism), often to an extent that contradicts science itself. This is also where you need Klevius/KLEVUX for a better understanding of your world.
Yes, there are millions of average "opinioners" out there. However, the brain power offered by non-opinionist Klevius/KLEVUX exists only in the proportion of one in who knows how many millions/billions!
From left to right: Homo sapiens sapiens 0 yrs bp (i.e. "we") Pintubi-1 some 100 yrs bp (i.e. contemporary with "us"), Floresiensis 12,000 yrs bp (i.e. more or less contemporary with "us") Neanderthal 30,000 yrs bp (i.e. more or less contemporary with "us") Mungo man who lived some 40,000 yrs ago in Australia was a tall (6'4/190 cm) but dumb chap (compared to "ordinary"** humans) who lived some 40,000 yrs bp (i.e. almost contemporary with the birth of truly modern* "us") Sediba 2 Million yrs bp (i.e. not contemporary at all but even before Homo erectus). What seems obvious is that under conventional theories abt human evolution there's a striking lack of correspondence between skulls & intelligence until the emergence of fully modern "Aurignacians" (incl. Cro-Magnon).
* As I hinted at already 2004 in my Out of Africa as pygmies & back as global mongoloids, the term "modern humans" is highly erroneous & misleading when used to describe big-headed but simple-minded apes from the past (Homo idaltu etc). This usage is well represented by, for example, Berkeley professor Tim White, one of the worst "anthropologists" of our time (mainly because he functions like a bottleneck against more intelligent, or at the least, less biased anthropologists - btw, he isn't an anthropologist at all, which fact doesn't seem to hinder him from uttering the most senseless stupidities re. anthropology in front of ignorant media people etc). However, Tim White may not be as stupid as he appears, it's really hard to tell because his Afro-centrism is deeper than the stone walls of Great Zimbabwe (abt the latter & its horrifying islam connection see Klevius Roots Guide & When Ibn Battuta bought his sex slave girl "in the mosque").
** It's important to note that "ordinary" humans of today on average most probably possess a lower intelligence than the "Aurignacians" (see Klevius theory). The selection for intelligence peaked in Siberia some 40,000 yrs ago, before (see Klevius theory) the spread of the new "mongoloid" modern human became global while slowly mixing with more "archaic" humans hence giving rise to the physiological pattern we still see traces of today. Also compare what Klevius call the "bastard belt", i.e. the "caucasoid" blend between modern mongoloids & more primitive "archaics". This view also explains statistical global intelligence differences.
Human diversity clearly mirrors a migrating bipedal ape! According to Klevius (2004) after hybridizing in the interface between jungle & savannah the Homo/Pan bastard spread around in the tracks of previous big but poor-brained Homos with whom it could still interbreed. This pattern has probably been going on since the time of Homo/Chimp differentiation. The savannah geared Homo was able to extensively enlarge its living space, and when it got the final brain upgrading it really took off in cold Siberia.This ape may well have developed its small super brain in SE-Asian jungles before heading north and interbreeding with erectus and Neanderthals.
The qualitative difference between the brain of a bonobo pygmy chimp (left) & a gorilla (right) is bigger than between a bonobo & small brained humans!
Kow Swamp by the Murray River, Victoria, southern Australia, dating to between 11 000 BC and 7000 BC contained some 40 anatomically robus skeletal & cranial remains which lie outside the extremes of the so called Australian Aborigines (when I wrote abt Aborigines back in 1992 I focused on the period 40,000 yrs ago to the first civilizations*).
* Islam, btw, isn’t & has never been a civilization. This inferiority complex is why islam’s proponent’s desperately try to call it a “civilization” wherever they get a chance!
The Kow Swamp morphological patterns strongly indicate changes in the facial and frontal regions of Aboriginal crania from northern Victoria over the last 9000-10,000 yrs. Terminal Pleistocene skeletal remains from south-eastern Australia can be distinguished from their recent counterparts by their greater size and robusticity. This includes greater average stature, larger mean head and tooth size, thicker bones in the cranial vault, larger and more rugose areas of muscle attachment and greater mean endocranial volumes. There appears to have been a gradual reduction in body size after 9,000 years BP, with people of modern body size and shape appearing at around 6000 to 5000 years BP.
Who started evolution?
We do know what the “god-people” think, don’t we. But I’d say Darwin was "the first mover". An intelligent & informed true scientist of a type you rarely find in universities. Whereas “the first mover” is a senseless* oxymoron, Darwin is for real.
* “The first mover” is a kin to the equally insane "Big Bang". Both share the senseless monotheist fabrication of creation from "nothing" (Klevius 1992). And as soon as you have figured out that creation (from nothing) is an equally lousy concept as "god", you will also realize that there cannot possibly be a beginning, which fact in turn makes "the first mover" retroactively unemployed, doesn't it. This is also where otherwise quite senseful George Berkeley went wrong.
The extended chimp/Homo divorce
Analysis of human/chimp genetic relation reveal that hominids and chimps diverged far more recently & over a longer timescale than previously thought.
Gene flow leads to a reduced genetic variation by recombining gene pools thus repairing developing differences in genetic variation that otherwise would have led to speciation.
According to Klevius model of how the modern human came to being, it all started with repeated hybrids between Homos & apes. The now extinct ape may have been something like an advanced Bonobo & the Homo an almost equally small but slightly bigger brained non-human pygmy. The result looked something like Homo floresiensis. This creature was then able to reproduce with bigger local Homo variants. This also explains the wide & unique body size & shape variation among humans today.
Via gene flow (especially in the Central Asian climatic "veins" - see Klevius original theory presented on the net 2004) which leads to a reduction in genetic variation & due prevention of speciation, the emerging human got bigger body size & a brain case now filled with a smarter (than Homo) ape brain. This explains the poor correlation between brain size & culture such as tool technology etc.
So which is the most puzzling question for Klevius right now?
How is Homo floresiensis' super brain (i.e. the relation between brain size & culture) related to the Siberian/Aurignacian IQ explosion? Was Homo floresiensis, in fact, M130?
A possible scenario is that the Denisova finger represents a developed (cold adapted & with better feet/femurs etc) Homo floresiensis lineage already transformed through interbreeding with other Homos.
Repeated climate changes mixed jungle & savannah apes/Homos in the borderline between the dwarfing jungle & the almost treeless savannah. Although many chimps can survive on the savannah they are by no means well adapted for such an open landscape. This evolutionary pressure may have triggered the success for a world conquering hybrid who, moreover, also was/became able to interbreed with more distant Homos as well.
Our understandable fixation with physical similarities easile obstructs the possibility of alternative & rapid changes although they are right under our nose (consider, for example, a chihuahua & a grand danoise).
Modern humans hence are a product of both allopatric & ecological speciation. This kind of hybrid speciation outlined here & in Out of Africa as pygmies & back again as global mongoloids may achieve reproductive isolation between the hybrids and one of their parents while streching out along a genetic path that ended in a dead end in Australia & a cultural explosion in Siberia. Different genotypes may not only produce different phenotypes in similar environment but similar genotypes may also produce different phenotypes in a new environment. Although the cold north was already familiar for many Homos, it was only via the new high-rewing brain structure that the full potential of this abundant protein source could be utilized.
The hybrid speciation process may have been repeated many times until the new brain (coupled with previous northern Homo features) structure eventually (almost) cleaned the field & left HSS the only surviving species.
This post will be more elaborated when I get time so have patience till you see the light in the end of the tunnel...
