Oldest West African Civilization/settlement by KidStranglehold: 6:25pm On Aug 04, 2013 Re: Tichitt-Walata... Also, each E pochal Event was initiated by a small group of people, perhaps even by one person for the earliest events, and even the Industrial Revolution and its attendant Scientific Revolution had few fathers.� However, I came to realize that there is probably nobody else on Earth like my former partner, and even Indiana Jones cannot save the world by himself.� With the strategy that I finally developed, I do not look for heroes because I know that there are not enough currently walking Earth. �I am attempting something far more modest.� The greatest triumph of the ultra-elites running Earth today is making free energy technology and the resulting epoch of abundance unimaginable, and all of today�s dominant ideologies assume scarcity in the foundation of their frameworks, which is largely why my former partner and my astronaut colleague were voices in the wilderness and like ducks in a shooting gallery that did not know where the next shot would come from.� The m ost damaging shots were usually fired by their � allies ,� right into their backs, which nobody could have convinced me of in 1985.� But after watching similar scenarios play out dozens of times, I finally had to admit the obvious, and my partner admitted it to me in 2013.

The stu dy of intelligence is a young science, and the relationship of brain size (both absolute and relative) and structure to what is called intelligence is currently subject to a great deal of research and controversy, and even the definition of intelligence is hotly debated.� The cerebral cortex appeared with mammals, and is the key structural aspect of brain evolution that led to human intelligence.� The mirror test attempts to determine which animals have self-recognition, and those suspected of being the most intelligent have passed the test, including all great apes, cetaceans, elephants, and even a bird.� Humans do not pass the mirror test until about 18 months of age. [452] � There is great debate between those embracing "rich" versus "lean" interpretations of behavior and intelligence observations among animals, in which seemingly complex thinking can be an illusion. [453] Many human mental traits exist in more rudimentary form in other animals, but human thought seems far more complex and sophisticated.� Feats such as language with grammar may be a unique human achievement, which provides evidence of the greater mental ability of humans, and our tools provide the best evidence of advanced human cognitive abilities.� Intelligence can confer gr eat advantages, and the encephalization of theropods is an early indicator of its benefits.� For instance, spider monkeys have brains about twice the size of howler monkeys, which is thought to be due to their larger societies (about twice as large), and the fact that their diet is more than 70% fruit, while the howler monkey�s diet is less than half fruit, and leaves provide twice the proportion of the howler�s diet over the spider�s.� Remembering where and when fruit is ripe, and navigating more complex social environments, takes greater thinking power.� Just as with howler and spider monkeys, chimpanzees have to range far to find fruit, which is their staple, while gorillas can more readily eat nearby leaves, and chimps have more complex social lives than gorillas do.� Chimpanzees also have proportionally larger brains than gorillas' and are considered more intelligent.
