Homo Sapiens But Dumber poses the question: Have we evolved from early man to modern intelligence only to throw it all away with risky behavior? Cro-Magnon man started with low intellect, but evolved over the millennia to develop language, fire, the wheel, the written word, electricity, and today's modern inventions that are truly mind boggling. But instead of honing our intelligence into worthwhile pursuits, many use alcohol and drugs to numb their brains, and then sit like coach potatoes in front of the television. Are we dumbing ourselves backward on the evolutionary scale? Can we develop intelligent intelligence and self-discipline in children, so they can choose what is valuable in their lives, while avoiding the self-destructive behavior in our risky world? How many times have we heard of highly intelligent people who act foolishly in their jobs, with their families, or in society? We know of many celebrities in the scientific, artistic, political, and sports worlds that have destroyed their careers due to a lack Frontal Intelligence and control over their impulses. Homo Sapiens But Dumber will help parents and teachers implement actions that will develop the skills of attention, prioritization, stimulus control, postponement of privileges, and self-regulation to strengthen our children in a volatile world full of danger. We may indeed be more intelligent than early man, but we are surely dumber! About the Authors: Dr. Eveyln Prado is a high school counselor at Tecnologico de Monterrey and Dr. Jesus Amaya is associate professor of education at Universidad de Monterrey. They have two sons, Jesus and Jose Mario, and live in Monterrey, Mexico. Publisher's website: http: //www.strategicpublishinggroup.com/title/HomoSapiensButDumber.html

Each successive generation of mankind since archaic times has been shown to exhibit significant difference in aesthetics, social behavior and physiological make up. These changes are evolutionary. This book is therefore a study of humans since archaic times and the changes that have since occurred in man. It seeks to convince the world that from apelike, Homo habilis, Homo erectus, and then Homo sapiens, we are now Homo x. By exploiting Charles Darwins organic theory of evolution and recorded historical developments (social, cultural, and biological) to date, the research has proved that your child or the youth around you is most likely a higher evolved human species, or different from you. He or she is Homo x. The book highlights historical, climatic, technological, and cultural adaptation by Homo sapiens since the exit of Homo erectus, which has catapulted evolutionary transformation of man within the shortest period making Homo sapiens the fastest of the hominids in the evolution succession to have undergone complete evolution by explaining the differences in lifespan experience of each hominid. It is therefore intended to help transform our policy and legislative and cultural perspectives on nurturing our children with clear knowledge that they are indeed different from us!

Around 13.5 billion years ago, energy, time, matter and space had come to be known as the phenomenon of the Big Bang. The theory of the fundamental features of the universe is referred to as physics. Around 30,000 years when these features had appeared, energy along with matter had started the coalescing into various complex structures referred to as the atoms. These then combined themselves into bigger molecules. The theory of atoms along with molecules as well as its interaction is referred to as the chemistry. Some 3.8 billion years before, on some planet known as the Earth, several molecules had combined to result in some large and well-defined structures known as the organisms. The theory of the organisms is referred to as biology. Around 70,000 years before, the organisms which belonged to the group homo sapiens had started forming even larger and elaborative structures known as the cultures. The development of these cultures is known as history.

Explicit evidence exists for the progression of life—over a period of three-and-a-half billion years—from a strand of protein to an intelligent human, through trial, rejection and selection. The process continues and, if not hindered, a higher destiny awaits us in the distant future. Is life a property of matter? Is evolution a passive process? Or, does it have an aim or purpose? What is the role of beauty, intelligence and awareness in this evolutionary saga? Is eugenics going to hinder the natural process? Are we on our way to self-inflicted extinction? This book ponders on these questions and attempts to trace life’s quest for perfection—where beauty, vitality and wisdom meet.

This book provides an introduction to the subject of hominin cognitive evolution. The book includes chapters on neural anatomy, working memory, evolutionary methods, and non-human primate cognition, covering major developments in cognition over the span of hominin evolution from the ape-like cognition of Ardipithecus to the final developments that enabledthe modern mind. This second edition includes discussion of the role of sleep in hominin evolution and the difference between Neandertal and modern human cognition, with significant developments since the publication of the first edition. This edition also adds greater emphasis to the growing fields of epigenetic inheritance, embodied cognition, and neuroaesthetics, as well as the role and status of Homo heidelbergensis.

About forty thousand years ago, a new kind of hominid suddenly appeared in Europe and Western Asia. This was a creature unlike any of the other hominids then existing - borderline Homo sapiens, and the enigmatic Homo sapiens neanderthalensis. Homo sapiens sapiens, as he has now come to be known, was distinguished from his contemporaries by his increased height, delicate bone structure, and the huge balloon-like cranium that announced an intelligence that allowed for the radical break with the existing models. We see the results of this intelligence pouring out in an exuberance of material and artistic creativity. In his homeland, which extended from Spain to the Urals, a tiny, gemlike, if frost-encrusted civilization was spontaneously created. Seymour W. Itzkoff focuses in Triumph of the Intelligent on the evolutionary dynamics that led to the production of ever more intelligent humans, finally culminating in this sudden spasm of reconstruction. Itzkoff has followed the evidence carefully, attempting to stay within the assignable limits of evolutionary theory to produce a most-probable model of the dynamics that extruded this enigmatic creature, Homo sapiens sapiens.

Originally published in 1972, Homo Sapiens examines how humans emerged from among the millions of other species and achieved our unique position within the animal kingdom. The book examines what direction future evolution will take and what may be regarded as the ‘meaning’ of human existence. It stipulates that these are the questions for which no real basis of discussion existed before the 20th century, and at the time of publication, some were still without a definite answer. The book sets out analyse these questions and the continuing debate that has arisen from their study. This is an account of the uniqueness of man in the animal kingdom, how this uniqueness arose during evolution, and what traces of it can be detected in animals other than man. The book describes the mental and physical evolution of man, from his earliest ancestors to the present day. He also gives an account of man’s cultural development seeking to establish that there is an underlying principal of cultural evolution, a principle that has been denied by many historians. Later chapters deal with the future and with possible forecasts of mankind’s further physical, intellectual and cultural evolution.

Duality begins with "I". I am not this incarnated person. I am Conscience. I am ALL. There isn't on the one hand the Creator and on the other me, his creature. No, I am the Creator AND the creature. Separation is an illusion brought on by this apparently dual world. Untity is the only reality. I create my own experiences on this planet. When we know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that we are the great Consciousness in the process of experimenting itself, Homo Deus may be incarnated in matter because we behave each day in the light of this unshakeable knowledge. This is reflected in our thoughts, in our words and actions. Thus, the elements that are needed to complete our evolution are anchored in our present moment and the metamorphosis may take place! You may have thought that the evolution of Homo Sapiens had reached it's term? Not so. Our evolution is still in progress... Soon, human beings shall enter an infinitely more majestic phase having as sole guide, Love, with the daily understanding and living out of our true nature. The result is guaranteed if you fully and totally integrate each of the forty steps. Goal attained in forty steps.

New York Times Bestseller A Summer Reading Pick for President Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.” One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us? Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas. Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become? Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.

The beloved, award-winning novel is now a major motion picture, Love, Simon, starring 13 Reasons Why’s Katherine Langford and Everything, Everything’s Nick Robinson. Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: If he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing with, will be jeopardized. With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out-without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met.

Childbirth and the Evolution of Homo Sapiens

The period surrounding birth is a phase of modern life that has been dramatically altered in recent decades, and emerging scientific disciplines have shown that this short period is critical in the formation of human beings. Michel Odent, former obstetrician and revolutionary childbirth pioneer, believes that these are two good reasons to raise questions about the way babies are born, and the consequences this may have for the evolution of Homo sapiens. Furthermore, the transmission of acquired traits to subsequent generations can now be scientifically interpreted (epigenetics, the transmission of the mircobiome, etc), which may represent a defining moment in our understanding of the mechanisms by which evolution occurs. Recent scientific advances have been so spectacular that they merit this updated edition of a book that was originally published in 2013. Obstetric practice is generally evaluated in the short term; this ground-breaking book encourages us to think about modes of birth in the long term, and to consider the impact they have on our species and its evolution. It is a readable, yet thought-provoking book, which will give anyone interested in evolution and the future of Homo sapiens much new material to consider.

Your author decided to write this book about Human Evolution after seeing a Science Program about Evolution on KCET, the Public Service TV Station in the Los Angeles area. I was impressed with the amount of research going on in this area trying to find out where we, Homosapiens, came from. I decided to use the Google and Yahoo search engines to find out the latest probes which I used for this book. I have included the many reference sources so the reader can visit these Internet accounts to keep up with what is happening after this book is published. In other words, this is a snapshot-in-time report of what is happening research-wise at the end of the first decade of the 21st Century.

Homo sapiens rank among the most parasitized of all animals. In part this is because we know so much about all aspects of the biology of our species, but in addition, our varied habitat and diet and our global distribution exposes us to more infections than any other species. Whereas some familiar parasitic infections are responsible for much human disease and suffering, the great majority are rare or obscure forms ignored by all but the most comprehensive texts. The Parasites of Homo sapiens: An Annotated checklist of the Protozoa, Helminths and Arthropods for Which We Are Home, 2nd Edition presents a comprehensive listing of them all. Closely following the pattern of the first edition, this new edition incorporates a wealth of further information and data from the most recently published research findings. An indispensable guide for all parasitologists, it presents a comprehensive checklist of all animals naturally parasitic in or on the human body. Each parasite listed includes a complete summary of its characteristics. The structure of each entry includes: The scientific name of the parasite Synonyms for scientific names Status of reported human cases Geographical distribution and abundance Parasite habitat on humans Hosts Transmission mechanisms Human risk factors Indication of host-specificity status
